The Valencia is a beautiful hotel with a really friendly staff. I checked in, my room was tiny but that's ok, it was clean and I had a partial ocean view, I got my bathing suit on and headed for the pool and hot tub to unwind. When I got downstairs, I was told the pool is closed for a wedding. I couldn't believe it! The following mooring I was awaken by construction they are doing to some of their rooms. I asked if I could check out later so I could enjoy the pool, the manager said he could only give me an extra hour, to 1pm. I was in my room packing and I received a phone call asking when I was leaving then I got a visit from staff at 12:30 asking what time I was checking out...I Not a relaxing experience at all.

We stayed in room 918- which was nicely picked by John the front desk attendant for us. it had a great (partial) ocean view. which was fine for us, as a full ocean view was pricey. They have valet parking. They had friendly housekeepers who come by the room offering waters/seeing if you need anything. The hotel beds were comfortable and the room was cozy and charming. We ate in La Med for breakfast and we had the best table... all the way at the end of the outside area facing the ocean. Wonderful service there as well. Very romantic place, would definitely return.

If you are like me you scour locations and reviews when planning your vacation. So after much searching I chose La Jolla and La Valencia for our mother/daughter week's vacation. I admit becoming a bit nervous when I discovered some negative reviews, but I should have ignored them! La Valencia is a lovely, old historic hotel in the perfect location. Ocean views? CHECK! Walking distance to great shops and restaurtants? Check! Superb, welcoming and accommodating staff? CHECK PLUS! We easily visited Temecula for wine tasting, Disneyland for FUN, Coronado for sight seeing and shopping, and hung by the GLORIOUS, dignified La Valencia pool. We loved it all! Our only mistake was waiting until the last night to eat at Cafe La Rue. We enjoyed happy hour and the food and wine were DELICIOUS and extremely reasonable. Don't make our mistake, go check it out! So if you have your room booked or are thinking of booking at La Valencia go for it! Oh one last thing...yes the room's are on the smaller side but that didn't negatively impact us at all and yes there is construction but again it did not interfere with the positive vibe at the hotel. I highly recommend La Valencia. La Jolla and La Valencia are the perfect marriage of class and fun!

Lovely hotel in La Jolla, on best location, we had a great view from our room over the ocean. The breakfast in the restaurant also with a ocean view, was excellent. Walking distance to great shopping and nice restarants and coastline with a lot of wildlife, sea seals and other animals.

My husband and I traveled to San Diego for his 45th birthday. The hotel staff was extremely kind and accommodating, the room met our needs and the view of the ocean was simply spectacular. The room, while on the smaller size for a hotel room, had a kind sized bed, a small bathroom and plenty of storage for clothes. The best part of the hotel was the beautiful pool - perhaps one of the nicest pools in La Jolla. The lounge chairs were comfortable and the poolside staff team was incredible. A shout out to Robert and Kevin who are artistic bartenders and gave us great recommendations for local dining. I would definitely stay at La Venice again. Great experience!
