Well let's start with the overprice dinner. Chili Relleno, yes it was crab and bay shrimp � but no sides. Just came in a bowl all by its lonesome $34 is way overpriced. Kale salad � substandard. Now onto the room. See picture attached my wife stepped on a carpet tack. In addition there was a complimentary bottle of Petite...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! It's our local go to that is always a blast. From the staff to the gorgeous grounds (pool/spa) and choice of restaurants, you can not go wrong. They have added a little coffee shop/store that is darling. Another smart addition is a beautiful Mercedes shuttle that will take and pick you up within a 5...

Simply put, the service at this hotel is subpar. We had issues with room assignment and housekeeping and don't get me started on the service at Adobe restaurant. Service at the restaurant was among the worst I have experienced. Extremely slow or downright inattentive. The grounds and pool are quite nice and the shuttle driver, Larry, was awesome. Unfortunately this...

I stayed here in July and thought the grounds were amazing along with the hotel but left a little disappointed. I found the staff to be quite cold. My room was located very far from reception and the view was undesirable. As for the room itself it was spacious and clean so I have no complaints there. The food was...

We stayed at Estancia La Jolla for 4 days because we had a conference at UCSD. The room was very nice, if a bit dated. We had a small patio area, accessible through French doors, but it was separated from the parking lot by only a wall. So we had balcony envy because rooms above us and on the courtyard...

The walking distance from UCSD and the beauty of the resort made me very curious about Estancia. I found a deal on the internet for the deluxe double room. It was not clear whether it included the $25 resort fee. A few days prior to our stay, my son stated he wanted to stay with us than on-campus. I called...

Stayed here on business and found the hotel to be very accommodating with a very early check in and a request for extra foam pillows. Members of the staff were very helpful with questions. Room was modern, nice and the temperature control worked well.

My wife and I had a smallish king room for 3 nights while I attended a conference which was held primarily at the hotel. The room was very nice, the bed quite comfortable, good TV, separate john closet, complimentary wine and water. WiFi service was included and was very solid coverage throughout. Facilities all very clean, tidy, and attractive. Ours...
