Loved my stay at the La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla. It was a beautiful hotel with the beach, shops, restaurants, and lovely cafes nearby. The decor was beautiful and classy. Must say that rooms are quite small but it was clean, comfortable and cozy. I would definitely go back there for a romantic escape!

We had an incredible 3 night stay at this fantastic hotel. Very professional, friendly staff. It was our wedding anniversary and the hotel sent a bottle of cava and strawberries to our room, courtesy of themselves to congratulate us; a lovely touch. Room was great with a small balcony and sea view. Very clean, gave us two bottles of water... More

La Jolla is perfect in itself but La Valencia is fun and pretty. We were in room 204 with a full view of the ocean. It was old but refurbished nicely. Several others stayed in the cottages and we were told they were beautiful unfortunately some opened up towards the ocean road and the smell from the sea lions is... More

This was a fabulous stay for my husband and myself. I would return here many times. Our room was very unique and opened to the courtyard with views to the ocean. We ate at great restaurants, walked the beach and enjoyed the music in the bar area. This was my favorite part of our stay during our trip to CA.

I have wanted to stay at this Hotel for over 20 years and finally had a chance to stay here for a wedding. From the moment we drove up and walked in we were smiling. Our villa had a view of the ocean, the park, and the hotel pool, with palm trees by our balcony. The bathroom was large with... More

The La Valencia has a terrific location in La Jolla. I will say that about it. Our room in the tower was nice but extremely cramped. Predictably the elevator was slow to arrive at our floor, and the bathroom was a postage stamp size. We ate a light lunch on the terrace with average food but service was unusually slow... More
