If you trust Kimpton hotels and think this is a good choice in La Jolla, think again. It's not worthy of the Kimpton name. Service not good, amenities are not as advertised, and it's in a poor location. Amenities: 1) They advertise bikes for complimentary use. There is a grand total of 1 available....not that others were in use. They...

Well pnkyswr, I pinky swear that we will address your feedback head on and work on all of these things to make sure we don't fall short again. We have already addressed our bike inventory by ordering several more that have just started arriving so that will definitely not be a problem in the future. The other issues are easily...

Stayed at Hotel La Jolla for a few days this past week for a little vacation. It was incredible. The minute you walk in the door, you are immediately welcomed by the friendly staff and the impeccable lobby. The feel is so awesome that you just want to hang out and lounge. The hotel is in a great location with...

I have stayed here often for business and the quality has gone down considerably. After my most recent experience, it is unlikely I will return. The mattress in my room had a disgusting blood stain just below the pillow that was visible through the see through sheet. Why would they not change the mattress? Why is housekeeping not notifying the...

Hi hallkari, I must say that what you experienced is not cool at all and just not ok. While summertime can create some madness and lots of action in the hotel, it is never ok to put on damaged goods for display to our guests. Our housekeeping team has undergone some changes recently for the better so I am 100%...

My review is probably a bit biased by the fact that we were upgraded to a suite, but we loved this hotel. It's outside of the crowded parts of La Jolla, but a it's quick walk to La Jolla Shores. The hotel also runs a shuttle to La Jolla Village, which we didn't take advantage of, as we were here...

This was a good-great hotel. The only drawback was the housekeeping of lack of. First the good: staff great. The front desk staff was great. The staff of the complementary shuttle very helpful and informative. The facilities were great; good pool (small), restaurants. It's about 10 minute walk to the beach(on kind of a busy street, but you can take...

Heyprettygirl! Thanks for the great review and honest feedback. Sometimes being close to the beach and having external entrance breezeways is not always a good thing when it comes to upkeep on things like dust. No excuses though, we should be much better in that area as evidenced by your review. We will get those swiffer dusters out right away...

If you want to stay close to the beach and several bars and restaurants, than this hotel is for you. They have bikes, beach chairs, bags and umbrellas that you can use as a guest of the hotel for free. The rooms were nice and clean. The roof top restaurant is actually really good and has a very nice view...

Hi CarlaEb, I totally understand your thoughts regarding your recent visit with us. We are working on a proposal to not only enhance the pool furniture as it is now about 3 years old and ready for a new look but also to work on those cranky elevators. We have a partner company who watches after them but sometimes even...

Not worth the price we paid. Too expensive for what it is. Hotel not bad but a bit old. Clean. Valet parking at $ 30/night (self parking not available). You have quite a walk to get to the beach. We used the car for that. But the hotel has bicycles available for the guests so you can use them to...

Hi AlexandraSelva, Thanks for your feedback. While we wish we left you a better impression we think it is important to note that the valet parking fee is right in line with what you pay at any other property in the area and in some cases cheaper. We also are only a 3/4 mile walk to the beach but if...

The entrance to the hotel is beautiful and a bit deceiving. The valet parking charge was a bit high. Our room was on the 4th floor over the outdoor common area, where there was a fireplace and movie playing at night. The rooms were dark with dated decor. Lighting was poor. The carpet was stained. The platform beds were not...

Ouch speechlady2, It sounds like our style just didn't meet your ideal hotel. While I agree there are no excuses for stained carpets, one person's opinion of items like showers that look out to the ocean but give the option of privacy with the electric shade has received great feedback from others and is a pretty cool feature.

My wife and I recently celebrated her birthday in La Jolla at the Kimpton and had an exceptionally wonderful experience, primarily due to the hotel’s service levels that went above and beyond the norm.

The overall aesthetic is a bit deceiving as it appears to be slightly more boutique or 'upscale' than it actually is. Drive up and lobby are beautiful and the front desk staff are friendly and welcoming making for a pleasant arrival. Complimentary infused water and the afternoon wine and snacks are a wonderful addition. However, much of the good ends...
