La Valencia Hotel, La Jolla
Very Good8.0
Great location, easily walked to beach, restaurants, etc. My husband and I only stayed one night, so didn't get to avail ourselves of many hotel amenities. We stayed in a King Room with an Ocean View - was beautiful!

Unhappy anniversary
We got married at the hotel 15 years ago and came back for our anniversary. The room wasn't ready and we were left waiting until after 4pm. They told us they would call when the room was ready but we had to go back to the front desk after waiting for hours. No one said happy anniversary or left a card in the room. There were roaches in the bathroom and holes in the ceiling of the room. Overall, a big letdown on a special day.
