Great personal attention. Wonderful staff. Lovely room.

The property location to all of the attractions and beach area was perfect. The property itself needs updating.

The view from our room was spectacular. While we didn't use the pool, it looked very nice and the food is good in their restaurants.

Best location in La Jolla. Great service. Awesome views from private terrace.

Hotel was nice. Beautiful setting, close to the beach and restaurants. However, parts of hotel are dated and they do not offer room service at night. Elavators are slow

One of the best hotel experiences I've ever had! The property is phenomenally gorgeous and the staff was incredible! Everything was absolutely perfect and I would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful vintage beach front hotel. Very clean, excellent staff, beautiful scenery

There was only 1 elevator and it is super slow. We basically walked the stairs every day. The room was not soundproof. Every time someone walks in the hallway or when our neighbors leave, I can hear. Whatever time the hotel staffs told you something would be ready, the time doubled or tripled. We were told at check-in that the room would be ready around 230, and the room was not ready until 4. When we arrived, we were given the key to the wrong room, when someone's luggage was in there! We were told the cleaning staff needs half an hour to clean our room when we came back, and after spending half an hour trying to kill time, the room was not ready.

Lovely ocean view room super nice and courteous staff. Every request looked after promptly

Fabulous hotel on Prospect Ave with great view of the ocean from dining areas and pool. Great food (but very expensive) and service in the restaurants. Comfortable, large bedrooms. The hotel concierge, Nancy, was so helpful and worked with me weeks before our arrival. Pool attendants were super friendly and courteous, as was valet staff. A few suggestions - the hotel has no place to congregate/meet friends (without paying for dinner, drinks, snacks). There is no lobby area to speak of. Also, the front desk staff could be friendlier and should be trained on communication and customer service. The hotel was building a spa during a stay and construction was right outside our windows, so we were awaken each day at 7:30am. Nancy was nice to comp one morning's breakfast. Wish the hotel had told us before purchasing the room that we'd be disturbed each morning. Once the spa is completed, it'll be great.

Hotel was within walking distance of ocean and restaurants, shopping, etc. Unfortunately, the hotel was in serious need of renovation. Also, some hard hat areas were roped off because of current renovations.

Very nice old school hotel with beautiful views of the ocean and very nice accommodations. Staff were always nice and friendly. A little on the expensive side, but nice.

I can't say enough about the staff. each one was so friendly and so excited to help. Our luggage didn't arrive but they were able to get us into a room right away which was great since we were traveling with an infant.

Too awesome to describe in 50 characters! A Spanish Villa off the coast of Naples, or Iperhaps the resemblance of the movie stars mansion with perfect landscaping and comfort at every turn!

An amazing corener room on the 9th floor with beach front/LaJolla Cove views. Right at the park for the coastal walk. Staff was incredible and friendly. Come prepared for tipping and valet parking expense, burn WELL worth it! Restaurant was an added bonus. Pictures don't do this place justice. Especially once you are inside.

stayed a week. hotel was great, la jolla nice, quaint. lots to do in area

This hotel is well maintained and has a Spanish style to the design. This hotel is located on a hillside and has multiple levels which include dining, bars, pool and villas. There are many local shopping areas by the hotel and excellent restaurants. This hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway.

I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world but this one is my favorite. It is a beautiful, classy hotel. The staff is very friendly, the room was very clean and comfortable with an ocean view. I am looking forward to my next visit!!

Dear Recent Guest, I am so very sorry that your recent stay at La Valencia was not as you hoped it would be. I do apologize for your numerous wait times and mistakes made by our staff. There is no excuse for you being given the wrong room key or the length of time you had to wait after to get your correct room. I hope that you will allow us another opportunity to win your loyal business and show you the excellent service La V is known for. Kind Regards, Melissa King. Marketing Manager
