“A fantastic getaway splurge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

A visit to San Diego must include a visit to La Jolla and the Lodge. What gorgeous grounds with gold course and hiking in Torrey Pines. The hike is quite a trek - but you will be proud of yourself and the gorgeous cliff and water views. The front desk can provide you with maps.
The rooms are spacious and luxurious with an excellent turn-down service. We used the hot tub but not the pool as the weather was slightly cool. The bathroom is large and spacious. The view of the golf course from the hot tub is lovely. The food in the Golf Restaurant was only ok - we had breakfast and lunch there. AR Valentien was very good in terms of service and food selections but the food was slightly heavy. We got a superb rate from Expedia Unpublished Rates (which essentially is Hotwire) for La Jolla. In hotels in Newport Beach and La Jolla, planes fly overhead every few minutes and can't be avoided. There was a fridge in the room and a complimentary bottle of water in the bathroom.

This place rocks! Beautiful grounds and view are just a part of the total charm of the Lodge at Torrey Pines. The buildings are warm and inviting and the best part is that the staff is just flawless in execution. I had only 2 days there, and every minute was perfect. The rooms are really nicely done and comfortable. All in all a very nice place. HIGHLY recommend. The only thing would be if they offered a shuttle from the airport...

I call the Lodge at Torrey Pines this because it is my favorite hotel in the Golden State. And that assessment is based on more than a dozen visits over the past decade or so. It's locale is unsurpassed, its design and ambience unique and appealing, done as it is in the Calfirnoa Craftsman style. Service is first rate, and the Lodge's A.R. Valentien restaurant is excellent for both business dinners and romantic tete-a-tetes with your spouse or significant other. I also like the Spa there a great deal, and nothing quite beats the rooms and suites on the 5th floor, overlooking the golf course where an annual PGA Tour event is contested each year, the ocean stretching out beyond. Just beautiful, and my advice is: run, do not walk, to this superb inn.

A quiet retreat. Rooms were very clean! Room Service was done in a timely manner and breakfast in our room was a great way to start the day. Loved the in-room coffee! Staff was friendly and helpful. Guests seemed to be "working", not many there for leisure. We were able to do a Saturday Yoga Class, free of charge-wonderful! Spouse used Spa Facilties: Staff was nice & attentive, facilities were clean, with a very calming atmosphere.

PRO: Clean and Updated, Many Amenities, Helpful Staff and Housekeeping Quick to Please, Quiet, Easy Access to the Torrey Pines Trails, Golf (however we didn't). CONS: Far away from Restaurants & La Jolla-must use a car, Not a Vacation-Resort Feeling, No Refrig./Microwave in the room we had.

Thank you for your kind review of The Lodge at Torrey Pines and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry our staff did not point out the refrigerator in your room. All our rooms have a refrigerator in them but they are built into the bar area and look like a piece of furniture in the entranceway of the room. This is something our bell staff should be pointing out and we will bring this up to our team to ensure no other guest encounters this issue.

Every reviewer is correct, it's a lovely, comfortable, homey first rate property. I celebrated my 50th birthday here on a girls' getaway, and I can't say how lovely it was to hang here for a couple of days.

We stayed at the Lodge at Torrey Pines for 3 nights in Feb. '12 and found it to be an amazing facility. Located on the property of the Torrey Pines golf course, in the TP state park in northern La Jolla and just minutes from charming Del Mar. It definately has a resort feel to it, and the staff were some of the most professional and accomodating that you will find anywhere. The rooms were spacious and nicely appointed. The grill room was great for breakfast and overlooks the practice greens. I did not eat at the main restaurant as we were there for a conference, and dinners were arranged, but I understand that the chef is world class and uses local organic ingredients.

I got a chance to play the south course (check that off the bucket list) and was in awe of the spectacular natural beauty even more than I expected.

If you ever get the chance to visit or stay at this property it is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Be careful of the locking sliding glass door to the balconey. We got locked out on our balconey one...
