Our family stayed at the hotel over the Labor Day weekend. We loved the hacienda type property, garden surroundings, nice appointed room and convenience to everything La Jolla. B My biggest compliant are about the restaurants in the hotel. The Burros restaurant is very expensive and food is very below average. We ordered a grilled cheese sandwich for my daughter... More

We just got back from six days away from work and the first three were spent at the Estancia La Jolla. We had a wedding on Saturday night, with a welcome reception Friday so we got there early and enjoyed a little more time to ourselves. The weather was perfect so the pool was ideal for lounging at.

This beautiful boutique hotel is directly across the street from University of California San Diego making it extremely convenient for visiting your UCSD student, as we do. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds are beautiful, there is a lovely pool area and outside lounge area that is old Mexico mission style with outdoor fireplace. The only negatives here is the...

Out first visit was through Hotel Tonight and for just one night. We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this place was and we knew we would come back some day. My husband surprised me for our 30th wedding anniversary for a 3 night stay and we received the Costco partners discount which included a $30 breakfast. The hospitality team... More

This was a nice little resort and spa. I was here for a conference and the entire staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The Mustangs & Burros bar was great for light fare and cocktails. Again, very, very friendly staff. You can sit outside by a wood burning fire, or inside, which is very cozy. I had breakfast at the... More

I stayed a few nights and had my daughter's wedding - and I never imagined everything will go so smoothly and flawlessly - I highly recommend this place! The rooms are beautiful, the courts and public halls are perfect for events and gatherings. I liked a lot this place and I'm looking forward to go again!

We stayed for two nights at Estancia La Jolla. We have stayed numerous times for pleasure, and it has always been positive. The rooms are spacious and quiet, and the bed and linens are luxurious. If you have time, visit Mustangs and Burros for lighter fare and cocktails in the open patio, or Adobe for breakfast and lunch! Room service... More

I've stayed here many times over the years and love the "Four Seasons" vibe (at a fraction of the Four Seasons prices). The hotel and grounds are very well kept, the rooms spacious and comfortable and the service top notch. The location is incredibly convenient if you're visiting La Jolla or San Diego. My only complaint would be the pool... More
