“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Friendly staff and old world charm from polished resort. Excellent location overlooking golf course, sea and right next door to State park. Nice pool area. Lots of lovely touches you would expect in top end resort.

The Lodge at Torrey Pines is located very close to the Torrey Pines state reserve (10 minutes walk). Its surroundings are beautiful, with the golf courses overlooking the sea.
We stayed in a double queen room. The room is big, well furnished, nice bed and linens. There was a balcony but unfortunately the door was jammed.
We had breakfast at the Grill and it was great. I had the pancakes with blueberry and granola and it was huge!
Staff was very nice and polite, specially at the reception and front desk.
I thought that it was overpriced for what they offered. But all in all, it was a good experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the golf courses and the ocean.

From the moment I stepped onto the property until the moment I left, the staff was so attentive, the service so fantastic and the ambiance so amazing, I was blown away. The room was incredible, with a view of the golf course - the ocean in the offing. The staff is remarkable in their determination to make your stay flawless. Room service was excellent.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the pool.

My husband and I stayed here in May for my birthday. The room was fantastic really spotlessly clean and the bathroom was super. The room overlooked the golf course and the pool. We had room service as I have mobility issues, the choice was extensive- the omelette especially delicious. I also had some spa treatments while my husband had a golf lesson with the pro. On the evening of my birthday we dined in the restaurant A.R.Valentin where we agreed the starter was possibly the best we had ever tasted. We really loved it here and hope to return same time next year.

I view this as a above average priced golf course hotel. Nothing about our stay would I consider above average. From the service to the accommodations, we were provided a room, bed and average food. From the moment I checked in, the service seemed scripted. At the reception desk, I was asked to initial a number of forms on a computer screen indicating I understood the conditions of my stay. Very impersonal way to start a visit. When we went to our room, the patio door was off the hinge. Asked the valet about it and he said he would send someone to fix it. Never fixed. The room was average for the price and as stated before, nothing exceptional. We had one lunch at the hotel restaurant and as stated before, was average at best. Had a very limited menu. Overall, nothing terrible to say, but nothing that stands out for the price.

Overall, if you like Craftsman design, you'll enjoy this resort. I had no idea it built only 10 years ago. Feels much older. We've stayed at Kohler's America Club which is similar in price and the difference is night and day. Obviously far different locations, but I think the resort could do more for the price.

Great place! Very fancy and confortable hotel with lots of places of entertainment. Beautiful golf court and also an amazing pool. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable and the hotel has also two great restaurants and a great service and fitness center. Parking place charged 25 dollars a day. Just conveniently 5 minutes driving to downtown La JOlla and 25 to San Diego. Very well located, close to the amazing Torrey Pines State Reserve. I recomend staying here, however it is not a cheap hotel and you also will need a car to get around. The only negative point is that i was with kids and the hotel doesn t have many entertainment options to the little ones. Besides that, everything was perfect.

My biggest disappointment was I did not find the place relaxing. There is NO place to hang out that is not noisy. Our room was noisy. The balcony is noisy. (And BTW, they allow smoking on the balconies. ugh). They moved us once, but it hardly made a difference.
The lobby was incredibly noisy. Even the concierge was shouting on the phone in French. And I'm not sure why other TA reviewers have not mentioned this but the hotel is in the flight path of jets taking off from Miramar, so sitting at the pool is punctuated by Top-Gun noise.
The people were nice, and the service was good especially at the pool. We ate pretty much every meal on property. AR Valentien: slow service but food was worth the wait every time. The spa was small but adequate.
I can't really recommend the place if you are looking for a warm, quiet getaway. Hawaii this is not!

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are noisy. This includes signature and reserve rooms that overlook the "botani...
