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. For our...

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. Let me start by saying the property itself is good, although not amazing, but that’s fine because rooms here aren’t priced as if it were a...

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...

Hi dutch2220, Thanks for the constructive feedback. You are absolutely right in a lot of the areas you point out and we are working on a plan to help fight the traffic noise for those guests who are lighter sleepers, replace mattresses, etc. We definitely recognize these items and are working on a long term fix that will only enhance...

Great Hotel to relax at. Rooms were nice and clean. Hotel was well kept. The outside bar/pool area was comfortable and a great place to relax outside your room. The staff were so helpful and always available. The hotel was located not even 10 minutes walking distance to the beach but far enough away from the crowds. I would stay...

This was the last stop on a two week family road trip in California, and the least satisfactory if all the hotels we stayed in. Location is great, with fantastic views over La Jolla and the ocean from the 11th floor bar and restaurant. Another nice feature was the happy hour of free wine and beer dispensed in the lobby...

It sounds as if we got caught without our true colors showing during your stay TripAdvisor Member. While this is not the norm we certainly can't accept that this happened during any of our guest's stays. We will take a look at our checklists and procedures to ensure our team is covering all areas of the hotel and promoting cleanliness...

Overall, we highly recommend staying at this property. It is approximately 1 mile from La Jolla Cove and less than a mile to the beach. It is much closer to the water than the Hyatt, Marriott and Sheraton properties. There are some other properties in La Jolla Cove - Grande Colonial, La Jolla Inn, and the La Jolla Cove. The...

This old high rise tower is the only hotel of its kind in La Jolla. Kimpton took it over 8-10 years ago and made it modernist, but they have done nothing since except continue to raise the cost of staying there year after year. The two elevators broke down regularly, tree trimming services began their old work before 7:00 am....

Hi HappyGuest415, It seems you weren't such a happy guest and for that we are deeply sorry. You may have some facts straight and some slightly off. Kimpton has managed the property for just about three years now so the timeline is a little off but you are correct that the property is a little more retro in age. Being...

I decided to upgrade our room when booking and glad I did. We were in room 609, which faced the ocean, but understand the ocean is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel! So you're not right on the beach. We had a nice enough stay, but there were a few things that I thought could be improved. When...
