My experience was very good at this hotel except a few things. When we arrived to the room, the carpet was a little damp. The service is excellent and is nothing to complain about! Also one of the best locations you can get in La Jolla. Me and my wife were able to walk everywhere.

Hotel's Favourite
La Valencia is a historic hotel with the flavor of old Spain in the heart of La Jolla. We loved eating on the terrace with ocean views and breezes for breakfast, and the bar also has beautiful views and great cocktails. We were able to walk everywhere. The hotel and dining staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. Our room was clean and lovely with ocean views. It was a perfect relaxing getaway for a couple.

The rooms were clean, the pool was nice, the staff was always top tier. The location can't be beat in LaJolla. We did not eat at the hotel restaurants simply because we had reservations elsewhere, so cannot give an opinion on the food there. The in-room dining breakfast was 100% excellent!

An exceptional stay - La Valencia should be on everyone's "bucket list." I loved the breakfasts and lunches on the patio overlooking the ocean - and what hotel has a dog menu! The views were priceless and the concierge was incredibly helpful.

Room was just OK but the view was terrible! Looked at messy dumpsters and ugly HVAC equipment loaded with bird crap! All this for $800 a night! And don't even think of asking for a different room - The staff always says none are available even though they had plenty of available rooms. And the staff is not friendly or helpful - Just arrogant!

Great location and view. The classic suite had an amazing view but the smell was not pleasant. The staff was very friendly and courteous . Everything is walking distance from the hotel. It also had a lot of cute scenery places to take pictures.

Absolutely a Great Vacation. We can't recommend LA Valincia enough to our friends and family. Thank you for always taking such wonderful care of us. With all the options available for vacations in LA Jolla or the surrounding beachside cities hands down this is the best place!

We had lunch. Good and service excellent, as always! We enjoyed a view of the ocean, and the sweet sounds of a wedding ceremony from the garden below. We have enjoyed La Valencia many times over the past 40 years. We shall continue this tradition whenever we visit La Jolla. Truly a pleasure.

This hotel shows over-promising pictures of its rooms. The classic double rooms have windows that do not allow to see outside. The room that was finally assigned to me, a classi king, is far in size from the one shown online. Don't fall into the trap.

Please deep-dive into this property before staying. It is very old, dirty, and in huge need of repairs. Both outside the property and the rooms. We had to move rooms as the first one was absolutely filthy. Also beware that it sits right above a very busy and loud road between the hotel and a very busy and loud park - THEN the ocean. I feel the website is very misleading. We paid $900/night for a $200/night accommodation. So very disappointed.
