      Good location but overpriced for what you are offered. Tight quarters, non-functioning record player, no TV. All in all not worth the expense in my mind.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Hotel Joaquin is a meticulously clean, stunning replication of what living in Laguna Beach 75 years ago was like, in all it's bohemian elegance. The aesthetics, art, decor, music, period hardware/fixtures, furniture, terracotta tiling, art deco white dry wall, high ceilings with exposed beams, and high-end doors and windows combined with numerous patios, a bar with a view, outside dining, and beautiful gardens, grass areas, and a pool that cascade down the hill towards the ocean, we felt like we were in living Laguna as it was decades ago. This is not the place to come and watch television, but to savor the lack of relentless techno-chatter of our times. Instead, we enjoyed vinyl/LP's and turntables provided in the rooms. Hotel Joaquin is perched back and above some of Laguna's most stunning coves: Shaw, Diver's, Crescent Bay, and Emerald Bay in a beautiful residential neighborhood, while being only blocks from the Laguna Art Museum, Main Beach, and countless tide pools, shops and restaurants. It is also just a short drive from the stunning state park, Crystal Cove, to the north. And the staff could not have been more hospitable, kind, and appropriately available and communicative. We will be back.

    • 4.0.Fair

      The hotel is rather small and most rooms lack privacy since windows overlook common areas, hallways, etc. Moreover, during our stay, from the moment we checked in at 4pm until after 10pm the whole hotel, including the bar, pool, and even inside our hotel room was overwhelmed with the loud screaming and laughing of a large group of drunk, non-mask-wearing women in the hotel bar area. It is very disappointing that our stay was ruined by this out-of-control group. The hotel staff could have either control the behavior of its loud guests or (b) warn other guests that their stay would coincide with a large, loud and health-risky event so that guests can decide whether to cancel or reschedule their stay. Other than this, our ocean-view room was great but we could not use any other areas of the hotel due to the issue highlighted above.

      A great boutique hotel with ocean views. Helpful and friendly staff, great pool, and excellent decor. The record players in each room are a fun touch.
