La Valencia Hotel, La Jolla
We stayed in the Vintage King Ocean room. You could tell the room was vintage. It was a little tired and musty. The carpet had some stains and it was definitely a little old school. But, the bathroom was nicely updated and the bed itself was very comfortable. The room was on the small side but still had enough space for us. But, that all being said, the hotel on the whole is absolutely beautiful and in a GREAT location. Would definitely stay there again. The staff was also exceptionally nice.

Beautiful historic hotel. Room was a lot smaller than I expected, but still beautiful. Great food and service.

Great location, room could use some updates
The setting is beautiful! Our room was strangely dark and dreary for a "resort" hotel. The WIFI did not work at all and though they did tryt to help but it never did get fixed and I wasn't going to spend any more of my vacation time dealing with tech issues so we finally gave up trying. The front desk said they would credit us something off of our "resort fee" but they never did. Overall the place was great because of the location, the beautiful pool and the friendly staff there, otherwise it was overpriced for the room that we had. They did let us have a late checkout on the day we left which was very nice.
