Had a great 3 day weekend with my sons. The hotel is a lot of fun and the staff were all fantastic and welcoming. Great location too, walking distance to the village and beach, and bikes were very useful. Also enjoyed the wine happy hour.

Stayed: November 2013, traveled with family

We stayed here for our wedding weekend with our Wedding Party and out of town Family and to say it was amazing would not do it justice. So chic, so cute, such a fun atmosphere. Amazingly friendly and accommodating staff but honestly, they feel more like friends. The food is delicious and the views are unparalleled. Seriously, walking distance to the beach AND breathtaking views?! Best sitch ever. We will Staycation here again as soon as we possibly can.

2 words of advice: Stay. Here.

Room Tip: Above the 5th Floor!

We have stayed at this hotel several times throughout the past 6 years and were surprised by the new remodel which is quite hip and with a strong beach theme. The staff is gracious, friendly and efficient. When we arrived the room had an odd smell (maybe salt water in carpet) so the staff came up and immediately determined the cause (AC) and discounted the room as they did not have another ocean view king room to move us too. Great bar area with fireplace adjacent to pool but no Jacuzzi in the renovation which was a feature we looked forward to using. The restaurant "Cusp" was an incredible experience sitting at the chefs bar. Also no choice but to valet the car which is steep at 26.00 per night. We will continue to go there! Dog friendly with free bikes to use.

Room Tip: Ocean view have great views of the bay

Dear Traveler,

Thank you for the 4 star review! It sounds like there were a few glitches in your stay I am glad our team was able to assess it and get you moved to a new room immediately. Glad to hear you got to enjoy some of our amenities like Cusp and the outdoor fire pits. We can't wait to have you back!

We have stayed at various Kimptons in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Boston. We enjoy the location of the hotels, the unusual and upbeat decor and vibe, the friendly staff and attention to detail. This was our first time in La Jolla and at this particular Kimpton, and we look forward to our next trip. We stayed in room 611, which is the far north room with a gorgeous view of both trees and ocean. I read a book in the afternoon sun out on the deck. The bed was comfortable and the shower was huge. The Cusp restaurant on the top floor has a spectacular view and we loved our steel cut oatmeal each morning looking out at the ocean. The wine time had a local musician and scores of young people around the outdoor fire, enjoying the warm air (compared to Canada in November!) The location is between the village and the beach area, so you can walk to both, but use the complimentary hotel shuttle for dinner in the village. You can also take out bikes! There is traffic noise, and the hotel hosts many special events. This was not a problem for us. There is a $28 parking fee for the outdoor parking area - but we pay $40 at all of the other hotel locations so this was not troublesome. We had a wonderful time and will come back soon.

Hey Traveler,

Thank you for your 4 star review, and your Kimpton loyalty! I am glad you were able to travel South for the winter and experience some La Jolla sunshine. Cusp's views are breath taking I am glad you were able to enjoy them along with other amenities we offer such as the bikes! Look forward to having you back next time you are looking for a warm destination.

Beautiful remodel. Spacious rooms with great furnishings. Fun and friendly staff. Both Kyles at the front desk were amazing. We forgot to pack beach towels, but the hotel provided us with a complimentary beach bag filled with beach towels, a newspaper and sunscreen for us to use. They even let us borrow a nice beach chair. We won't be staying anywhere else in San Diego in the future. We love Hotel La Jolla.

Everything was great, got an amazing deal from travel zoo and was not treated like I was there on a special. They had a wine social at no charge, the food was delicious. I had the pork belly, and it melted in my mouth. The staff was great, and it started with the valet when we pulled up, and continued with the other valet as we left. I would definitely go back when I am in the area.

Room Tip: Not as many rooms as other hotels so book early, we were only able to stay one night, not the entire...

The Kimpton La Jolla had all the great details that I love about boutique hotels. Plus they really cater to dog owners which is why I chose the hotel. We spent a lot of time poolside enjoying the pool, the poolside bar, the fire pit, the palm trees, etc. The decor in the lobby is so fun. The rooms were excellent. We got a great deal and had a truly lovely view from our balcony. The view from the restaurant at breakfast was just exquisite. Worth the trip alone! They really catered to our dogs too and had a little dog bed in the room with dog treats and a toy. The staff were all great and friendly with the dogs too with a very convenient area to let them out. Excellent stay. Definitely would go back!
