Great hotel in a great location. Lounging in the lobby bar with the live music is so relaxing. The rooms are comfortable and the Hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. We would highly recommend this hotel!

Michelle De Esprilla, one of the hotel managers, made our stay at La Valencia Hotel an unforgettable experience! We are from Dallas, Texas and I took my three children there for Spring Break 2017. Michelle made sure we had the perfect rooms for our stay and the entire hotel staff gave us excellent service! We stayed in a double queen room for the first few days which was beautiful. The decor was lovely, the room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Then, much to our surprise, Michelle moved us to a lovely Villa right by the pool which we enjoyed for the rest of our stay! It was a beautiful villa with a king bed, a large living room with a fireplace, bar and pull out sofa. The bathroom was huge with two sinks, a whirlpool bathtub and separate shower. Plenty of closet space with two spacious closets as well as drawers. We had our own private patio with table and chairs that was next to the pool and overlooked the ocean. The hotel is gorgeous and is right in the middle of La Jolla where you can walk anywhere in town including the beach, La Jolla Cove and the sea lions. The restaurants have beautiful ocean views and the food was delicious. They also have a wonderful healthy children's menu with affordable prices. The pool was heated and is absolutely beautiful overlooking the ocean. We all had an amazing time! Michelle, as well as Bob at the front desk and everyone at La Valencia Hotel helped make our Spring Break unforgettable.

First of all, we stay only at 4 and 5 star hotels. We're really picky. This is a really lovely hotel in an excellent location. And the service really stole the show. Jennifer, the sommelier / manager, really made us feel at home, and went out of her way to answer our questions, get us a bottle of wine after things had closed, etc. She is awesome!! It's an older hotel, but not a bad thing at all, and they've totally updated it. The rooms are very nice. Somewhat small, but that didn't bother us. Very nice bed and linens, and beautiful decor. My wife and I both loved it, and as I mentioned, we're very picky. The location is incredible, right in La Jolla. The wine list is REALLY fantastic - they have a library selection! 10 and 20+ year old wines! Amazing. We LOVED it and can't wait to come back again. This is definitely where we'll be staying!

We booked a Vintage Ocean King after seeing how pretty the ocean views seemed to be from looking at photos on the La Valencia website and When we got there, they put us in a room on the 4th floor where the "ocean view" was through a door that actually led to the walkway to the pool. The only way you could see the ocean is if you stood in a particular corner of the room. But even if you stood in this part of the room, you wouldn't want to leave the shades open since there are people walking right by your room, so in order to have privacy, you're stuck in a dark room with no views. When we called to complain, they mentioned we booked a "partial" ocean view. I double checked the website and, and neither place mentioned "partial" when describing the ocean view for the Vintage King Ocean, so it was quite misleading. After calling, they did very quickly move us to a room on the 9th floor with a gorgeous ocean view, so we really appreciated them fixing the mistake. That room was considered a Vintage King Ocean too, yet it had a WAY better view than the original Vintage King "Ocean" we were put in. Aside from the misleading room descriptions, we thought the service was great and the hotel was lovely. And the location was perfect - so central to the beach, shops & restaurants. I would strongly suggest that the La Valencia re-think how they categorize some of their rooms, because passing off that 4th floor room as "ocean view" made an otherwise 5 star experience, a 4 star one.
