The hotel is very nice and the rooms are clean but the hall carpeting is starting to show its age. The linens were not as nice as the hotel or price you pay. I would stay there again but I would first look for something a little better for that price first.

I hate to admit it, but my husband and I have grown weary of the outrageous cost of parking at hotels...and the addition of the "resort fee." That comes to nearly $50 extra added to the cost of a room, and, quite frankly, that has become off-putting. We find ourselves staying in Bed and Breakfasts more and more often now,...

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and for being a long-time repeat guest. We would also like to thank you for recognizing our restaurant as outstanding as our Food & Beverage team was very pleased to read those comments.

From the staff to the grounds of this property, we were very impressed. Our room was well appointed, the grounds were gorgeous, the restaurants were out standing. Location is beautiful as well.

I can't say enough great things about our stay. We stayed for five nights and we were treated like royalty the entire time. The staff is so friendly and outgoing.

I was blown away when we pulled up, the courtyard is stunning, was blown away when we entered the lobby, blown away when we entered the rooms and blown away when we ate and again blown away walking the grounds.

Our two night stay was perfect! We have stayed here many times, but this was our first time attending a wedding at Estancia. Thumbs up all around! Excellent service, delicious food, and friendly staff. The grounds and pool add to the relaxing atmosphere. Our room was perfect...very quiet and comfortable. The location is private and secluded, yet it is minutes...

I loved this hotel. The grounds and pool made it. It was nicely located in La Jolla. The rooms were calming and the bed was great. I would only knock it on it's food service.
