Hotel's Favorite
Thoroughly satisfied stay with my Fiancé. Beautiful view from the ocean view suite. Check-in took longer than expected but was made up with the beautiful view from the room. Upon settling into the room, we realized one of the bedside lamps was missing a light bulb. A short phone call to the front desk and they had an engineer at our room to screw in the new light bulb. Do remember to reserve a dinner time for Nine-Ten restaurant, located at the lobby of the hotel, a week or too before. Great food, drinks, and service. This location is also within walking distance to Eddie V's for any special occasions. Bed: The bed and beddings were extremely comfortable. My Fiancé and I had one of our most comfortable sleeps ever in these beds. Must call back one day and ask which brand their pillows were! Hahaha. Overall great place to stay for a special occasion with a special someone. Great restaurants all around within walking distance. Will definitely stay again when in the area.

Dear n0mn0mnam: On behalf of our entire team, thank you for sharing such lovely comments about your recent visit. Delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your ocean-view room. After all, that's why you come to La Jolla, right? And being centrally located to the Village allows easy access to all of the wonderful shopping and dining options (like our own NINE-TEN, an experience not to be missed). We hope to welcome you back to the Grande Colonial soon. Sincerely, Terrence Underwood, General Manager

Great La Jolla location--park your car and walk everywhere. Staff was uniformly efficient and friendly. Ocean view from the room was a great way to start every morning. Looking forward to visiting again and having a chance to dine at their restaurant.

With Covid-19 concerns, and the many restrictions that California has seen in recent weeks, we were a bit wary of how traveling or a stay in a hotel might be. The Grande Colonial exceeded all expectations. The staff was friendly and helpful, while wearing masks and maintaining social distancing. All shared spaces such as the elevator, hallways, and lobby were clean and felt safe. Our room was clean and sanitized and felt very comfortable and safe. The staff was good with communication in person and via text to help us manage our stay and housekeeping needs. While we were sad that the restaurant was closed for Breakfast, the Pancake House across the street was available for eating in, delivery or pickup. Thank you for a wonderful stay for our quick trip. I hope that many others will be able to enjoy this hotel and area again soon.

We just got home from a wonderful one week stay at the Grande Colonial and can't believe how perfect our stay was. The entire staff was amazing, our room (#139) was perfect, and the hotel was beautiful and in a perfect location - one block from the ocean and right next to a lot of delicious restaurants with outdoor dining options. My husband, grown daughter, and I were very nervous about traveling during Covid, but the hotel management and staff were super conscientious and followed all the safety rules perfectly. We were even able to use the pool (heated to 84 degrees) and chaise lounges without anyone near us. Our entire stay was truly a fantastic experience.
