If you are a picky traveler like me, you are reading a lot of Trip Adviser reviews and may be debating about where to stay in La Jolla or in San Diego in general. I was here on business for 3 days so where I stayed was important. Also was doing business in La Jolla so this hotel was convenient...

I really enjoyed this hotel for the most part. The rooms are spacious and very nice. I felt the bed was comfy. Shower was great. Everything would expect from a quality hotel. The grounds are also very nice. Well kept. The pool was great. The jacuzzi was nice and hot. Overall, the service was excellent. I cannot really say anything...

We stayed at the Estancia in late July after going back and forth on whether to stay in Coronado or La Jolla. The great deal offered through the website with a Costco membership is what convinced us. We ended up loving the location. With the amazing weather (cool mornings around 68-70 degrees, partly sunny), we loved jogging/walking the local roads...

We spent our anniversary weekend here. The grounds are beautiful. The staff was exceptional. They went above and beyond by providing a "Nordstrom" atmosphere. We received complimentary champagne upon our arrival. There were a few mishaps that were easily fixed. The resort is located by Glider's Point and across from UCSD. We took a cab ride to Del Mar and...

Thank you for the comments about our guest rooms- we’re glad you found them to be quite nice, spacious and clean. I’m sorry that we missed you and your friends at the Pool Bar & Grill, it typically closes at around 4:00 or 5:00 depending on business demands, but hopefully you were able to order through in-room dining.

Stayed at this hotel for the weekend in July 2013 for a family wedding. The reservations manager made an error with my reservation and when discussing the reservation error she denied making an error.

Estancia has the ambience of an older luxury resort. The property is beautifully landscaped with lovely walkways throughout. It has a salt water pool and excellent spa. We were unable to eat breakfast or lunch there but the appetizer menu was fantastic and reasonably priced considering the high food quality. I had grilled fish tacos and a salad and my...

I've stayed here before, because it's close proximity to Torrey Pines golf course. It's also close to Scripps, where I was this past week. Lovely hotel, beautiful location, wonderful amenities, and my massage was one of the best ever!
