“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

I had heard of Torrey Pines always in reference to golfing getaways. However, one does not need to golf to enjoy the surroundings of this place. It is quaint without being too small and it is spacious without being overly commercial. The spa services were very good, efficient and competent. The spa rooms are also very clean and relaxing. It is decorated in Arts & Crafts style and is very homey. I ate at both restaurants, very current menu's--the chef must be up to date on the latest in trendy meal combinations. The room was VERY spacious and all of the service people I came in contact treated me kindly. It was very clean and they allowed self parking which is only $1 less than the valet. Not sure it that is good or bad, but I liked the option of not having to valet.

First time my wife and I had visited this resort. The Lodge is a great hotel and I would highly recommend staying here. The only negative I have is that it is located in an area that doesn't have much else to do other than golf. Needless to say the golf is the bext and the facilities cater to that. Even though the golf courses are public and run by the city, the lodge has a "golf concierage" that helps you work through the city system. Other activities are about a 30 minute drive from thre resort so it isn't much of a negative. As mentioned in other reviews I don't think it is a place for a regular family vacation as there isn't a lot to do on-site

Room Tip: Ask to face the golf courses.

Amazing Arts and Crafts architecture with Mortise and tenon wood work. Art Nouveau Favile Tiffany glass and art, along with Art Deco Tiffany lamps. The rooms are spacious and the beds sleep wonderfully. The men loved the golf courses and the girls the spa. The best facial I have ever had. Dining the first and last nights the dining room leaves ones' pallet very satisfied. Breakfast was fantastic each morning. Turn down service each night. A wonderful place to vacation and really relax and pamper oneself.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

The Lodge is a beautiful setting with rooms that are spacious and clean; staff answered all questions with friendly helpful answers and suggestions; the concierge was attentive to every detail in searching for and arranging cars, restaurant reservations and even taking the time to take a family photo! I would highly recommend The Lodge to anyone traveling the San Diego area and look forward to returning.

My husband and I decided to plan a weekend staycation to celebrate our anniversary and chose the Lodge. Since we live in San Diego, we wanted something with a great atmosphere that would make us feel like we really got away and we weren't disappointed. Our room was beautiful with a great patio to sit outside The service was amazing - the staff took care of any need and were very welcoming. The grounds are beautiful and they even have a croquet lawn that was a lot of fun. Don't miss the burger at The Grill for a delicious evening dinner. We would definitely return for another weekend!

My sister and I stayed at the Lodge at Torrey Pines with our boys: 1.5, 6 and 9 yrs old. We were excited to stay here, but our experience was not great.

First, let me give praise where praise is due. The guys doing the valet were exceptional - always greeting us and helping us with luggage/bags/directions just about anything. Also, the room cleaning staff was phenomal. They had the rooms spotless every day and night. Kudos to them!

Unfortunately, I can't say anything else great about this hotel. For families traveling with young children, there is NOTHING for the kids to do. The swimming pool is stuffy, and there's no beach within walking distance.

Finally I have to say that I did sense a bit of discrimination at this hotel. We were part of a group conference, and one of the evenings we had a black tie dinner. We were at a table with 6 other African American couples, and the bartender / wait staff brought a bottle of wine to our table with 4 wine glasses, and just left them on the table next to one of the guests. He stated something to the effect "if you want some wine, here are some glasses." We were shocked that he didn't bring enough glasses for the table, didn't pass them out, and didn't offer to pour any wine. When we complained to the mgmt, the same waiter came back out and proceeded to spill wine on the table and plates of everyone who wanted wine.

Overall: Disappointing experience at a 5 star hotel.

Attention to detail in every aspect of The Lodge, as it's known. Rooms and baths are spacious; rooms on golf course side have fireplaces. Artwork -- plein air -- adds to historic accuracy. The smell of a roaring fireplace in lobby greets you as you drive under porte couchere. Two terrific restaurants, esp ARV. Be sure to have the tuna carpaccio, my favorite! Well-deserved Five-Diamond rating.
