The location- great. Near the ocean.

Dear Fabulous Guest,
A big thank you from Team La V for the 5 stars -,we really appreciate your loyalty, comments and great guest advice (yes, book direct)!
Visited June 2017 as a couple (mid-twenties), Vintage Ocean room #1115, booked through budget online travel-agency.
The room: clean, compact but big enough to move around. It really does have a vintage feel to it, without feeling old. Our room was on a corner and...More
My Fiance and I spent 3 days here during our 7 day California vacation and La Valencia Hotel was hands down the best part of our trip! The staff was superb and provided us with the best service we've ever experienced. Our room, the view,...More
The La Valencia is a magical place. Pure paradise. It's looking over the cove of La Jolla so the view is spectacular. We woke up to the sounds of birds chirping and seals barking every morning. Our room was very roomy and comfortable. The restaurants...More

Cheers from La V - La V is honored to sell out practically every weekend. Our ocean view pool deck is a top attraction and yes - it generally always fills up by noon but keep in mind our hotel is small so you won't be overrun like a Las Vegas mega-hotel!

Hi there - You can see the beach from the hotel - it is a block away from the area where the sea lions congregate. However, you do not 'smell' them as you ask. There is live music in the lobby from W - S nights. I was there... More
Hi there - You can see the beach from the hotel - it is a block away from the area where the sea lions congregate. However, you do not 'smell' them as you ask. There is live music in the lobby from W - S nights. I was there by myself and found it very convenient and a great place as a 'solo' traveler. I looked at MANY hotels in the area - if you love the feeling of old word charm this is the hotel for you!!
