    Great location, but that’s about it

    Our stay started out great, but we were quickly disappointed. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice while we were checking in. He even walked us to our room himself. We had a large room with a water view. It was nice. However, within five minutes of being in the room we noticed there were ants all over the bathroom floor and on the toilet. We immediately told the front desk. They didn’t seem to concerned with addressing the issue. We finally didn’t want to wait in the room any longer, so we told them to call us and let us know their solution. About an hour or so later we got a call saying that they had a new room for us but it was smaller and didn’t have a view. Claimed that they couldn’t do better because we booked through We moved our stuff to the new room and everything was okay for the most part. The fridge didn’t get cold enough, which was an issue because it needed to store breast milk. I had to use a cooler instead. The water also literally smelled like dead fish. It was gross. They had also moved us to a room on the street and the windows are super thin so we could hear everything. On a positive note, the location of this hotel is great. Super central and the valet guys were super nice.

      Staying at the Grande Colonial is always a delightful experience. From the moment you arrive the valet staff usher you onto a lovely historic property, classic LaJolla! My family has stayed there over the years as native San Diego people who now live on the East Coast. My children associate the Grande Colonial with their now home away from home on the West Coast. With their grandparents a block away we’re there at the hotel and the Nine Ten restaurant on a regular basis.

      The Grande Colonial

      As my second stay, I had the opportunity to explore the Grande Colonial a bit more and certainly appreciated the personalized gesture waiting for me at the reception desk, the updated room and incredible ocean view. Lastly, I have to compliment the in house restaurant NINE-TEN. The food was delicious and the restaurant is certainly worthy of staying on property and making a reservation. Thank you Grande Colonial.
