It's a great place to stay. Don't forget to mention if you are a AAA member to get the discounted rate. Also - ask for a room near the front lobby, or be prepared to take a LOOOOONG walk to your room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the front lobby, or be prepared to take a LOOOOONG walk to your room.

I have stayed at Estancia La Jolla several times since it opened--sometimes because I was attending functions at UCSD and other times for a weekend getaway from my home in San Diego. The courtyard and many gardens are a definite attraction. The plantings are not all native to the area, but they are gorgeous. The guestrooms are quite large and well-appointed, and many have balconies overlooking the beautiful main courtyard. The buildings are designed in an attractive hacienda style with tile floors in public buildings. I have found the dining options a bit unpredictable (sometimes one restaurant is open; sometimes another; the main restaurant is usually closed at dinner.) The food itself is quite good, however, and the service is, too. The room service menu is varied and not over-priced, given the hotel's overall quality. I have not taken advantage of the spa offerings..The swimming pool is quite pleasant.

Room Tip: Rooms near the main elevator mean less hiking up and down lengthy corridors. The most pleasant views...

Our stay at the Estancia La Jolla was amazing! My husband and I stayed there with our 2 children, ages 7 and 4. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. The staff was very welcoming upon check in and friendly through out the entire hotel, from housekeeping to landscapers to hostess in the restaurant. We were only 10 minutes from home, a little staycation, but truly an amazing hotel. The rooms and grounds were so, so, so clean! Great little get away!

Room Tip: Ask for a garden view room, the grounds are gorgeous!

My son and I went to California and wanted a peaceful place to stay. The grounds of Estancia were beautifully landscaped. Our room was large enough for us both, very comfortable and nicely decorated. The staff was accommodating and always friendly.
It was just minutes from La Jolla cove!

We loved our stay and will definitely return!

Consider this spot for your next conference or review. Wonderful atmosphere and facilities with paths to wonder physically to promote mental frolicking. Friendly service all around, nice rooms and librations. Hope to return with more time to take advantage of the spa and other amenities.

Room Tip: Hard to go wrong.

As we drove up to the hotel we were already in awe over the architecture and landscape. The red tiled roof buildings look a hundred year old, but were actually built in the last decade and the plants are Mediterranean style and gorgeously done. Mustang and Burros is a great Happy Hour location with wonderful ambiance on the outdoor patio. If you're walkers, ask the staff about the 3 mile round trip hike to the beach. The deserted sands are worth the hike back up the hill.

Barely a block from the hustle of North Torrey Pines Road in LaJolla is a secluded enclave that is the Estancia Hotel and Spa. The building cannot be seen from the street and from the circular driveway near the reception area it appears small, elegant and rustic. The staff is welcoming and anxious that guests enjoy the property as much as they do. Smiles are wide and genuine and their systems, from check-in to the retrieval of lost items, seem to work. Sometime during our stay we lost our camera which we were able to reclaim several days after our departure with a minimum of confusion. Parking, both self and valet, is reasonable and convenient. The central courtyard is lush with trees and flowers and our room was quiet, well appointed and at our online obtained rate, reasonably priced. My wife and I look forward to returning for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Tell the clerk at check-in if you are self-parking. Some rooms are especially convenient, yet except...
