Great hotel, excellent room, super staff. I had a wonderful ocean view, and the room service and associated food was exceptional. The hotel is centrally located in La Jolla, and I first started staying in this hotel about 40 years ago. It has only gotten better.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grande Colonial. We felt safe, well cared for and enjoyed talking to each staff person we encountered. They were so helpful and went out of their way to assist us with arranging a car and day trip to Coronado Island. The room was clean and very comfortable. We will be back as you cannot beat the service and location!!
