“Elegant but rustic resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I stayed here for a business meeting and it went off without a hitch. The staff was excellent, accommodating and extremely friendly. Wish I had more time to enjoy the resort. The food and drinks were great quality. It was nicely located to take long runs with scenery.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the golf course/ocean or pool.

The Lodge at Torrey Pines is WONDERFUL. It's elegant, quaint, and special. If you're in San Diego and you play golf this is a MUST STAY. The property is immaculate, the food is fabulous, and the staff is on-top-of-it all the way. Can't safe enough nice things about the place -- and I mean it.

Room Tip: A room with a view overlooking the golf course.

I spent the two wonderful nights at the Lodge on Torrey Pines last week. It was truly a treat after having stayed at another hotel in San Diego on business before arriving at this magnificent resort.

I was greeted by the most welcoming gentleman at the door. The rest of the staff was just as warm and friendly. My room overlooked a wonderful garden and the bed inspired me to reconsider what I have at home.

Dinner at the Valentien restaurant was magnificent and a chance to meet the chef was inspiring. I experienced the best massage ever at their spa.

I have only words of praise and the promise to be back with my fiancé.

Room Tip: Room 433 had a fantastic view of the garden

We spent two nights at this property and were very impressed with all aspects of the accommodation and service. Rooms were spacious and beautifully appointed, common areas and grounds were lovely, staff very gracious and helpful. One little glitch with the room was resolved promptly to our complete satisfaction. Food at the clubhouse restaurant was excellent. One member of our party played golf and was thrilled with the experience. Hiking in the nearby state park afforded beautiful views. Highly recommended!

This review is long overdue....
I just completed my umpteenth stay at this property and can't wait to return again!
The staff is always wonderful and this facility is so comfortable and inviting it feels like home away from home - although far more luxurious.
As a veteran traveler, I am always searching out the best restaurants nearby my hotel. When I stay at the "Lodge", I don't even bother. The food is so good and so healthy, I just eat every meal there which makes for a very relaxing stay.

Another great plus is that it's right next Torrey Pines State Park which is perhaps the most scenic section of the entire California Coast. You can take an incredible nature hike right down to the beach from the hotel. It simply doesn't get any better than this in San Diego County - I know, I am a native...

The hotel was one of my favorite. We stayed for a week and I was not ready to leave. The setting is peaceful, the view beautiful and the food delicious. So many great restaurants in the area as well. No golfing and still had fun.

Room Tip: Can be a long walk to parking. If this matters to you.

Our stay during summer 2012 at the Lodge at Torrey Pines was excellent. Staff was very forthcoming, helpfull and super-friendly. The location is perfect : tranquil, secluded, beautiful views, close to the highway. We loved the golf course, and the swimming pool. The interior decoration is stunning, with lots of attention to details. Do take a stroll through the inner garden which is well designed and kept to perfection. Enjoy your Sunday breakfast on the terrace with a view over the gardens towards the ocean.

Room Tip: Do avoid the rooms at ground level, as these can be dark. Go for the second or third floor.
