This is the best hotel in San Diego! The service was great even during the pandemic. It is also more affordable than any Air BnB. Take advantage of the pool and excellent food. It’s similar to the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara. Book early and often. The GM Kingsley is the best and deserves a raise!

Overall I was disappointed with my stay, The location of the hotel is fantastic and the building is beautiful. The staff overall was inexperienced, and the service overall was underwhelming for a luxury hotel.

This was a great location to mix ocean and cultural activity. And, it is a blast from the how life was back in the day. The staff truly cares about the guests. I purposely did not tell my wife where we were going to be staying because I knew she would be blown away.

You are greeted at the front door with a happy, friendly welcome. Walk inside and you are struck by the painted ceilings and the beauty of the hotel. Front desk people are as helpful as could be. Rooms are clean, well appointed and have the most comfortable beds you can wish for. Look out the windows and view the ocean. Need something and a call to the front desk and quickly your request has been taken care of. The pool area is a pleasant place to sit with food and drink service available. Walk outside on the main street (Prospect) and you are close to excellent restaurants and shops. La Valencia is the place to say in La Jolla.

Room tip: View of the ocean is relaxing.

This was our first visit to the property. It's charming, historic, elegant, and a bit quirky (stairs everywhere - thankfully there's an elevator for that if you choose).

We chose a Villa Room because we wanted our own outdoor space, as well as a comfortable surrounding. And, no disappointments.

We ordered breakfast in, and ate on the private terrace with views of the pool and the ocean. Beautiful. And the in-room-dining restaurant was fantastic (i.e the food was served timely and was delicious).

Lots to see and do within walking distance of the property.

We highly recommend this property.
