Decided to have a last minute getaway with the girlfriend and booked this place because bookit.com had a pretty good price with a free upgrade on this hotel. Not really knowing the layout of La Jolla, I expected this place to be closer to the cove - instead it was tucked away next to the UCSD campus. Not exactly the...

We enjoyed our stay very much. The grounds are a plant lovers delight, lots of nooks and seats to sit and enjoy the fountain, or just take in the spring blooms. We had an Estate King Room, and it was just right, with a balcony overlooking the courtyard. They have a salt water pool, and spa on the other end,...

Just spent spring break and could not have been more pleased! This is a three story Spanish architecture hotel and spa. We had a first floor patio room facing the extensive gradens (which are beautiful). Beautiful room! Mini fridge,coffee maker, bottles of water are provided. Parking is valet and the staff is great in providing directions, sight-seeing/resturant suggestions and bottles...

We really enjoyed our stay at Estancia La Jolla. The grounds were beautiful. The room was luxuriously appointed and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was large and bright, with beautiful fixtures, great water pressure and smooth stone floors. We used the hot tub and pool area and liked them. I used the fitness center, which was small but had...

Celebrating my husband's 60th birthday at this beautiful resort was the perfect choice. The Estancia La Jolla had everything we wanted. As a costco member, we received free breakfast every morning, soft robes, free newspaper, and complimentary Voss water. The grounds were perfectly manicured and the staff was very nice. We had a wonderful time. We will definitely come back.

Estancia La Jolla was the perfect weekend getaway. From the moment we arrived the staff was on their game.

My husband booked a romantic spa package in celebration of our anniversary and what should have been an enjoyable experience from a 4 star rated property was quite the contrary. Our room was not ready upon our arrival (after check-in hours). The best service we received was from a hotel security guard. In an effort to redeem themselves, the GM...

My husband and I are frequent travelers to SD as we are looking after my husbands ailing parents.

We are very fond of Scripps Inn but had wanted to investigate...

If I could, I'd stay at this hotel twice a year just to recharge our batteries and bask in its beauty. And what a beautiful property it is.
