The hotel is great. Beautiful rooms and grounds. Good location. Attentive service. The one weakness is the standard of the quite expensive dining --- it's really not top tier and you are far better off trying the nearby restaurants in La Jolla or even Del Mar for lunch on the beach. I do want to record my horrible experience with... More

A lovely luxury hotel and spa right on the main drag in La Jolla going by UCSD, Salk, Scripps, etc., and nice escape from all the billionaire supercars trying to mow you down all the time on N Torrey Pines Road. Service is impeccable; buildings, grounds, and rooms are done in nostalgic Spanish mission/rancho style. May be showing just a... More

Estancia La Jolla Hotel is located directly across the street from UCSD campus dorms. So if you are there to visit a student it is very convenient; however if you are there to enjoy La Jolla and the coast, you will be disappointed. The Hotel is a 15 or 20 minute drive from the coast and is very isolated from... More

Hotel in nice grounds, with swimming pool. Friendly staff, comfortable room. Rather isolated, too far from La Jolla town or beach. Breakfast was of poor quality, stewed coffee and stale croissants, unless one wanted the full American. Valet parking at the hotel expensive.

I stayed here with a friend and we had a lovely stay. We were in one of the bottom rooms and it was very quiet. The beds were incredibly comfortable and we both slept great.

Made the reservation early, stay vacation, to include updated room, 80$ food credit, 2 day spa pass, and spa gift. Room was old and worn out. No food credit, no spa gift, unless asked for and then stalled. When travelling with girl friends or single what I find is they tend to give a woman the lesser desired room (i.e.... More

The rooms are nice - I would say 7 of 10 on a luxury scale. The staff is excellent and the service all over the property was perfect. It's well located right near UCSD and in La Jolla maybe 25 minutes from the airport. Has the feel of a boutique hotel while actually being a large property. Great Mexican restaurant... More
