We loved this hotel. The room was beautiful, incredibly clean and spacious. The location was also perfect, within walking distance of just about everything. The staff was very polite and helpful at all times.

I was expecting more. Better service and make sure my trip is more comfortable. The beds are to old, I sink in the middle of the bed. The room space is to small, overall I think is to much money for the service.

The location is great. Right downtown La Jolla village. At every turn the staff accommodated our requests. We got an excellent room right next to my sister's room, they let us have late checkout, they even opened a bottle of wine we bought while shopping. The room had a patio that we used a lot. Very nice hotel, would certainly... More

This is a beautiful hotel. The location was the best part. Little conveniences are a big deal for me however. Would have loved to have a refrigerator and/or microwave in the room .........at the very least a ice machine on my floor.

Excellent location, overall service, valet, pool area and lobby area; however, TV in room never worked well and on our first day the room wasn't made until late in the afternoon. The restaurant is very good but pricey. I would stay again based on location alone and overall good quality. The hotel just needs to tighten up on a few... More

We enjoy LaJolla, and loved staying at the Grand Colonial. Location is perfect; walking distance to shopping, good restaurants, and the beach area. Love the fact the Grand Colonial has long-standing history in LaJolla. My husband and I enjoyed our overnight get-away, and we will be back!

Beautiful property and location; staff friendly; however, we were made to wait 5 hours to check-in while being told several times throughout the day that our room would be ready in "just a little bit". Checked in at 4pm! Maid service was never before 4pm which was extremely annoying. Otherwise, the room was very nice, the concierge was good; pool... More

Incredible experience. Stayed in a 2 room suite with family for a week. The suite was very spacious for our family of 4 adults. Location in La Jolla is convenient for both driving to beaches and restaurants as well as walking to nearby eateries. The entire staff was friendly and extremely helpful.

Dear Cindy: It can't get any better than "extraordinary" and that is exactly what we strive to provide in all areas of the hotel. So glad that is what came through during your family's recent visit. I'm also happy you had the opportunity to stay in one of our two, 2-bedroom suites. For stays of one night, one week or... More

This is a beautiful hotel. The lobby is lovely. It feels like a European hotel...it has a Parisian feel...like the smaller Paris hotels we have stayed in. The staff at the valet area were nice but the staff at the check in desk were not the friendliest. Our room was beautiful and the bed comfortable. It was a bit strangely... More
