DISAPPOINTING! We made a reservation through Groupon first but the dates were wrong so we booked through the hotel directly. They said they would honor the requests we had in place, a poolside room with an accessible shower. When we checked in we were told they were completely sold out and only had one room in the second floor with stairs and no elevator! The front desk agent was completely rude and was not at all concerned that I can’t do stains with a broken hip! Rooms are outdated and dirty, the stairs have broken stucco and a safety hazard Very disappointing as we stay here often!
I loved my stay at The Lafayette! Clean, cute, great location (walkable to out door bars and restaurants), friendly staff, amazing pool, and great cocktails and poolside service (thank you Hannah!). I loved the room overlooking the pool! I felt nervous about staying at a hotelduring a pandemic let alone hanging out poolside. But The Lafayette is being so responsible about keeping the pool from getting crowded during these Covid times. I felt 100% safe! Juan and Joseph at the front desk were so helpful and were able to help me get checked into my room a little bit early (something i was not expecting on a weekend! Thank you!) The room was clean well and felt so comfortable! I wish I could have stayed more than 1 night and really cant wait to go back!
The Lafayette Hotel is a gem! It has history and is just a fun place to stay. It's clean, the staff is friendly and it's perfectly located for great site-seeing. I recommend getting the package with breakfast and parking. The food was delicious and it was so nice eating on the patio near the pool! We can't wait to go back!
I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel over the weekend for a family trip. Service was exceptional all around from front desk to restaurant service. I must say, Kerri was outstanding as a pool server. We were delighted to have such attentive service at the pool which is not what I'm used to at other hotels. To our pleasure, Kerri was also our dining server when we came in with the family. She was personable and made us feel so welcome. Cannot recommend enough!
First of all let me just say that we are in San Diego multiple times a year due to being huge Padres fans and also because the city is beautiful. We decided to stay at The Lafayette Hotel Swim Club and Bungalows. Am I glad we did? Absolutely. The place is just a cool looking historic hotel. They have suites as well as rooms that have nice little balconies overlooking the pool and rooms that you open the balcony and step out to the pool. They have a bar and a nice little restaurant that has outdoor dining with a nice view of the pool. Outside music is always playing plus they have a cute little general store for snacks. We originally booked a room through Groupon for a balcony to the pool room. We called the hotel after we booked through Groupon just to make sure the reservation went through and I’m glad we did because the hotel didn’t have the rooms Groupon claimed they had. We spoke with Joseph Taumua who also happened to be one of the hotel directors and let me tell you he went out of his way to fix the issue. He upgraded us and did quite a few other things to make our stay amazing. In fact we decided to stay another day because we were having so much fun. The bartender made us really good drinks. We are definitely going to be back very soon and when we do we will make sure to thank Joseph Taumua for making our decision to stay at the Lafayette Hotel again a very easy decision.…
