When we checked in the room was filthy. Previous guests dirty dishes had not been removed. Room smelled horrible. There was a large cockroach crawling across the pillow. Truly disgusting. There was a loud wedding outside the window. Hotel staff said there was nothing they could do. Take horrible room or leave. After long day of driving, we left and drove home. Horrible. Shameful.

Overall nice...but it's not so much a "Spa" for a romantic getaway as we believed during booking, as it is as much a resort or hotel and NOT a spa. Many more young kids there than expected. It's also a conference/wedding/meeting venue so there is a lot of activity. Rooms/furniture/décor a bit dated and tired. Loud fighter jets constantly buzzing overhead as you are on the departure flight path from nearby Marine Corp fighter base. You WILL be charged $30/day for use of the pool even if you don't use it, plus $28 per day to park. There is NO STREET parking! Staff is great. Food at the restaurant's is good, but the wait staff at the "Mustang and Burro" is poor, undertrained, perfunctory, slow, not engaging, and with only the faintest idea of what a waiter does. Food often served warm, not hot. Room service charge $6 plus 23% service fee without tip.

Dear Peter, Thank you for choosing to stay at our hotel. We regret that there was confusion regarding our hospitality service fee. Our team strives to be transparent about this charge before arrival by detailing the fee on our Travelocity profile. We appreciate your feedback and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to experience our award-winning spa facilities.

5 out of 5
Pros: Quiet, personal, well maintained and private grounds
Cons: We had a minor problem with the entertainment system when ordering a movie but this was quickly corrected by the hotel staff.
Location: Location is within reasonable distance to typical San Diego attractions but more appreciated for being off the main drag of tourist attractions.
This was our first visit to this hotel and it a place we will return to visit again. The hotel is so well kept from its grounds to the rooms. It is very quiet and private with a most friendly and helpful staff. Pleased and surprised to have a complimentary bottle of wine in our room after long ride to the hotel. A little off the main grit of La Jolla but well worth it. It did not feel like a superficial tourist resort.

Hidden fees, resort, parking, breakfast.

Pros: the property is quaint
Cons: Front desk friendliness, room cleanliness, upfront fee disclosure.
Location: it was ok, not close enough to the ocean.
There were hidden fees, its not fare to quote a room rate and in small print add a daily "resort fee" if its an absolute fee for all guest, than it should be part of the daily room rate. When i made my reservation it clearly stated breakfast was included, however they charged me for it at check out. Parking was extra, at check out I noticed they charged for valet although I paid for self parking. The front desk help was disappointing and rude.
