Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton La Jolla Hotel
Heaven on earth
Our stay at the Radisson in Lajolla was truely a heavenly experience, from the super courtesy of the employees to the friendly atmosphere of the residents of Lajolla. We will return every chence we get.
A good choice
We spent two consecutive weekends here. On the first our room was situated in a better location in the complex than the second , but both rooms were very satisfactory. We ate in Humphrey's Grill several times and enjoyed a coktail in the bar: everything was good and value for money. The hotel is a short drive to La Jolla Cove and situated next to shopping at La Jolla village. We think that we made a good choice when we picked this hotel.
Great location, slow service
We spent 4 nights here 8/23-8/27. The pool and grounds were beautiful and had a real tropical feel, even though we were right off the highway. The location was perfect for us, we were there for the zoo, legoland and seaworld, so the access to the highway was convenient. We returned 2 days in a row after being out all day to find the room still not cleaned. That was sooo annoying with kids and all. My husband complained with the front desk and returned even more annoyed. They claimed they had until 5.30pm to clean rooms. Later, someone came to our room and apologized and gave us a ticket for free breakfast for all 4 of us. The restaurant was very good. The bathroom was so small and we were told this was a deluxe room. Not a bad place, but I would not stay here again. We were paying alot 169/night, but the pool and grounds made it worth it. The kids enjoyed the little putting green.
Internet Bookers BEWARE!!!
We had a lot of issues at check in due to the fact we booked the room ONLINE through the Radisson web site. The first issue we had was the front desk attendant telling us that our rate was going to be an additional $40/ night. We had reserved a garden view room which is an upgrade, but well worth it, as these are the only rooms with the upgraded amenities you see on their website. The rack rooms have boring faded old looking amenities and fixtures and face the parking lot.They also tried to tell us that the rate we were quoted was for a rack room (not the garden view).To make matters worse, when we got to our room, we were put in a "Smoking Room" and informed that they cannot guarantee the prefrences of Smoking or Non-smoking rooms at check in. In addition they had no additional rooms for the weekend.Also, stay away from their restaurant HUMPHREY'S. Way over priced, and at check in we were given a coupon for 50% off up to 4 entrees, so we figured we would check it out. Bad idea, when we went to pay for the meal we were informed that they were not accepting the coupons. By the way the coupons had no restrictions, and no expiration date.On a good note, they have a great pool area.
14 Nights LaJolla Radisson
Stayed at the LaJolla Radisson from 5/1/04 thru 5/14/04. Because of the low price I received off the Internet I was not expecting much from this hotel. Boy were my wife and I surprised. The rooms are big, clean and functional. The grounds around the hotel are worth a daily walk just to see the nice things the gardeners are doing to the place. Groceries, Resteraunts, Shopping and Movies are all within a two block walking radius. We found the SavOn store in the complex next to the hotel to be a great place to buy snacks and drinks. In the same complex was a Health food grocery. There was a major grocery one complex over called Ralph's that provided good stuff at reasonable prices. You have to get a Yogurt at Ralph's---it is the best. I could go on and on but let me just say that the Radisson should be on your list of places to stay. We loved it.
Good location, slow service
Convenient location, but our room wasn't cleaned by 4:45 pm, even though we were out all day. We refused service the first day, then finally called the front desk on the second day and asked, if it wasn't too much trouble, they could send a maid by. Assumed it was because we booked an internet "deal" and they didn't give a damn. Phone deposit inconvenient, cable TV fritzy and annoying. Free parking was appreciated and you can walk to a movie theatre and eating spots, but I guess I expected more based on their "President's Award" status. I'll stay further up the coast next time - it's easy to commute to San Diego from almost anywhere.
Good value- lovely landscaping
Just stayed this weekend and was very, very pleased with the room quality, convenient parking and beautifully kept grounds (if you like Hawaiian style tropical lushness you'll appreciate). Very clean, quiet and though you must drive if you want to see the beach, overall a very good place to stay. I commend them for the standards they keep, and the design/planning of this hotel.
Radisson La Jolla Remodeled
The Radisson was remodeled. The furnishings are modern, and have a boutique feel to them. the baths are remodeled with marble counters.
However, the size the rooms didn't change. The outside has not changed, so it still looks 60's ish. Quiet location, even though it is near the freeway.
Nice for the price
Stayed four nights at the Radisson in Sept. 03. while on vacation with husband and two small children. Room and bathroom were very clean. Pool was very nice with a shallow end for the kids. Hotel is very convenient to the highway and to restaraunts. We made our reservations on-line and paid less than $100/night. Overall very pleased with this hotel BUT be sure to ask for an updated room. We saw some of the rooms that had been updated and they were very pretty. Ours unfortunately had not been updated. We asked the manager if we could move to another room and were told we could not without paying an extra $55 a night. We would stay here again b/c of how inexpensive it was, how clean the room was and how nice the pool area was.
Good location Nice hotel
I stayed at this hotel in mid-July. The location of the hotel is very good as it's very close to a freeway entrance, just up the street from several restaraunts (including a nice bar/lounge on-site) a mall is minutes away by car, and fabulous La Jolla beach is also minutes away by car.
The room was of normal size and was very well kept up. Housekeeping did a very good and fast job each day (although one day we had a delay in getting towels but finally did get them)
The pool area was kept up very well and was clean and nice. The pool is large and the jacuzzi was not cramped even with 10 of us in there. The pool area has a call button to place orders to be brought from the lounge (very nice touch). They also have 3 bins that keep pool towels so you don't have to bring your own down. If you go late afternoon/early evening the towels may be out and you'll have to ask for replacements though...it happened to us on one day and we saw it happen on another.
All-in-all we had a very pleasant stay at the hotel, the accomodations and the staff were both excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

... in the world. This weekend apparently many of the naval ships are open to the public. There is an area with memorials to ships which took part in WW11. Until the 1960s San Diego was a major tuna cannery city. Some of the tuna ships were requisitioned in the war. The airport is in the city and to see planes coming in to land right over your head is scary , In the afternoon after our tour we walked a lot and having ...
... some of our custom! We also saw a Mexican restaurant, and being Cinco de Mayo, we felt we should book it up, and enjoy some Mexican food for dinner! We carried on walking and made it to the port, which was lovely peaceful area, with some pretty large yachts there. We turned around and made our way back to the van. The Balboa Park was a massive expanse of land, and had many different museums on offer, but we settled on the Natural History Museum. ...
Every one seems to be fit enough following the first day of games but pleased for a day off. Picnic day was at the Wavehouse at Mission beach San Diego. What a great venue which was shut off for us for about 4 hours. Full bar, lunch snacks, beautiful day right on the beach and the best entertainment being a wave machine which you could have ...
Day 13- After saying goodbye to the wonderful Joel and Jeanne Morrison I was picked up by Heather, Emily, Kaitie and little miss Maddie and we made our way from Prescott to Tempe. I got to do some shopping at the Tempe markets and then we began the 6.5hr journey to San Diego arriving just before midnight. Day 14- I was privileged to go to church and watch Pastor Rice preach this morning and see his church. After the evening service the church had a water baptism and ...
