Rated 4 out of 5 by yycflyer Not a great location.
Very nice property, the kids really enjoyed the pool. The club lounge host was very friendly and provided some good advice for visiting around La Jolla. The popcorn in the room was a nice touch, the kids enjoyed curling up and watching a movie after a busy day. The location is a bit off the beaten track for vacationing, you end up driving everywhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Loyalist This hotel has seen a better day
The rooms are small and outdated, poor lighting. Bathroom are so small. Signed up for Green program, but had to call to get trash emptied, more supplies. Parking is pain, this is more like a motel, than a hotel. Sheraton is supposed to be step up from 4 Points, but I have found the opposite to be true in this and most of my recent stays at Sheraton.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dicmicaz Short stay, but very nice
Warmly greeted, helpful check-in process. Great location, but a bit far from the water. La Jolla is nt a user friendly destination, so get good directions. Room was nice, comfortable. Shopping center next door has everything you need. Loved having a fridge, and no fee for parking! Pool and hot tub very nice and huge. Like to stay longer next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tad77 Very pleasant
The setting is charming and the location adjacent to La Jolla Village Mall is excellent. I would have rated everything as "excellent," except the friendly dining service at Humphry's made a mistake and overcharged $5. (I didn't have time to correct this mistake, because I didn't notice until the next morning when I had a tight schedule to keep).

Rated 2 out of 5 by unlikely This hotel needs an update
The general condition of this hotel needs improvement. The rooms are outdated and the air conditioning system is outdated as well. In our room (405), it stopped working in the middle of the night waking up everyone with a terrible knocking sound. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DownUnder The Good, the bad but NEVER ugly
Our 8 night stay gave us a critical insight to the professionalism of the hotel. Staff at the reception area were highly professional; staff in both the restaurant and Shooter's Bar were highly professional; Valet attendant, William, was outstanding with our late request for a cab to a wedding and his proactive behaviour to ensure that I was not left alone to transport 7 suitcases from our room to the rental. Great job William! We especially warmed to the bar staff (Sierra, Scott and co.) who made our nightcaps highly enjoyable. BUT, the housekeeping daily on our room was inconsistent. Some days we had to request an adequate number of towels and amount of toilet paper. We also had to accept random daily housekeeping that could occur anywhere from 9am to late afternoon. I suspect that the hotel took advantage of our 8 night stay and 'cut and pasted' housing keeping to our room depending on housekeeping to other rooms where stays were much less.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MPC1 Service is a weak spot
On two recent stays, I found it difficult for someone to answer the phone on the Guest Services line. In fact, it took almost an hour for someone to answer in the early morning time frame.
The wait for check-in was longer than necessary.
Finally, the service at Humphrey's restaurant was awful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marty40 Poor recognition of loyal clients
Although I am a Lifetime Gold and my travel partner a Platinum 75 member, the hotel refused to grant complimentary access to their Club Lounge. The reservation was in my name. The reason given was that there are too many Platinum members. Even Starwood's Platinum service representative was unable to convince the hotel to make an exception.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alex my stay at Sheraton la Jolla
I arrived early in the morning. The person on the reception didn't recognize that I am SPG member. No welcoming smile. The Wi-Fi signal in the room was very slow and in on and off and I couldn't get my work done also I had to go to the lobby and use the hotel computers. The hotel is isolated and away from attractive locations if walking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meriam Staff are accomodating
we had 2 rooms for 2 nights starting 12/27. Power outage in one room on the 1st night. We were not charged for 1 night and parking fees was waived. We forgot cell phone's charger. We called and they promised to call us back and hopefully mail the charger. Hotel & room were not as expected, but service was excellent and very accommodating.

The stay was great! The room had a good view and facilities are great. The staff were very nice and helpful.
I definitely recommend Sheraton at La Jolla to my friends.
Oh, One thing...we had a trouble opening the parking gate. We had to try inserting the card to open the gate. We hope this problem will be fixed soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mpol Fine hotel. For biz or quick family stay
Stayed last week as a Plat. I would consider this more of a biz hotel than a family spot. Next to the highway. Yes, an ok pool. But doesn't really feel like a holiday place. No Plat upgrade. And bar closed at 11pm and there was nothing to eat or drink there after 11pm.
Also, poor Internet service.
A fine place. But nothing special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandys Great hotel in a great location
I loved this hotel. The staff was great and the grounds are gorgeous. My only issue was the the door to the room wasn't well sealed and you could hear outside noises. I would suggest being sure that the entrance doors to the room are better sealed. Having said that I love my stay and will stay again!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dart76 Easy access to I-5 and quick run to airport
Everything was fine except for:
When we called I asked if a shuttle was available. It was but it was not free and the limo they called charged $55.
A coupon for 50% off at Humprey's did not apply to breakfast even tho, we asked the morning after checking in. The fine print did say only for lunch and supper. Suggest you add lunch.

Having stayed here 5-6 times over the past two years, it is one of my top 10 favorite hotels to stay in. Rooms are always clean and the lounge is always nicely attended to with great staff. Grounds are pleasant to view. Only negative is the parking fee, which is clearly a money grab. I expect to pay parking at downtown locations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Notafan101 Hidden costs- not impressed
The beds and the pool were the only thing good about this hotel. When booking, the website reset the month and booked my reservation wrong. When I called to fix it, they said I would have to pay $150 to cancel the previous reservation, even though it was their site and barely booked. I should have paid it and booked somewhere else. Instead, I paid it and got the reservation for the dates I needed.
The bathroom has no exhaust fan, so with 4 adults, you can imagine the embarrassment. The tv never had a clear picture, and there was no DVD player to play movies we had brought. The wi-fi is only for 24 hours, and painfully slow.
When we checked out, we had to pay $13/day for parking in the lot. That should be included in the price of the room. At 6:30 in the morning, if you are in a room that faces the parking lot, be ready to be woken up by the garbage truck dumping the dumpster, and for the staff to feign ignorance and treat you like you are making it all up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DK29 Awesome! We enjoy staying at this Sheraton!
We have visited numerous times over the years and it has been a wonderful experience each time. The food at Humphrey's Grill is amazing. The staff has been attentive and responsive to our needs. We plan to stay again soon. Angela was especially helpful and very customer service oriented. She is to be commended!

Rated 1 out of 5 by TravelLady1119 Will NEVER stay here again,
Was not given any recognition for my lifetime Gold status. This was to be a month long stay. Checked out after one night. The night manager on duty tried to be helpful but the General manager had no interest in accommodating me for a long stay. Moved to another local hotel, they gave me an amazing room, ocean view.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NapaMom Nice grounds and comfortable bed
The grounds are really nice, just make sure you get a room facing them! I told them I was a SPG member and gave my card at check in, was given a non SPF room over the back parking lot while my friends who also are SPG members had a nice room looking at the pool with popcorn, water, etc in the room- I wasn't too happy!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mimi10 Great location
We stayed here for a long weekend. It was very clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great for getting around San Diego, close to highways, close to a nice mall and various reataurants. Some construction was going on, but it wasn't too bad. We were gone most of the day when they were working.

I stayed there last week for a few days. I have to say William and everyone there were great! Very attentive, friendly and extremely helpful. I had to go back and forth from event to event and William made it a breeze to get a taxi/town car. My stay was overall, very pleasant. I will definitely stay there again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natalie7 Great updated property
I am very selective about my hotels and room and the rooms at property are nicely updated. The best part was the white sheets and white duvet cover. Very comfortable bed. Nice amenities and with an exception of some dust balls around the baseboards, the room was very clean. Definitely recommend this property.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MoreMemories Another Enjoyable Stay
My stay here was VERY relaxing. My suite was spacious, well appointed, and quiet. Front Desk service was SPG quality. I even enjoyed walking to the adjacent mall for dinner at a restaurant and picking up snacks for the room.
I did not sample the food and bar services due to their limited holiday schedule.

I liked this hotel, although it is a bit old and in need of improvement (which is underway). We had some staff problems, from the lack of a bellperson when we arrived to finding a pool attendant to bring towels (none were in any of the bins.) On the plus side, room service food was overall pretty good.

This hotel is a gem in La Jolla. I was sorry my business trip was so brief--one night only--as the grounds were so beautiful, and the room so comfortable. I highly recommend this property.

Rated 4 out of 5 by barryj Nice hotel in La Jolla
The hotel meet my expectations but I was expecting it to be closer to the main center of town. Unfortunately, the reservationist at your 858 central booking did not tell me the correct information. Your people who handle the reservations should be familiar with both the facilities and their locations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJ53 Perfect hotel
This is the perfect hotel. Clean and comfortable in the room and the perfect vacation spot next to the pool under the palm trees. Breakfast on site was excellent and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and helpful. Stayed there three times over five years and looking forward to going back again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike47 Great stay but ...
Really surprised to have to pay for parking as a guest. I've stayed at hotels that have conferences where there is parking fees but it was always waived for guests.
Nothing on web site or during reservation regarding parking.
In fact, when I checked in and presented the parking stub I was told, "No problem sir, access and exit to parking areas is now on your room card". That would have been a great time to say that there will still be a daily charge.
I was told it was all spelled out on the sign to the parking lot. I went back and the word "payment" was only on the conference attendees portion. "Validation" was the wording for guests and restaurant patrons. Do you charge parking when someone uses your restaurant?
Whenever I have seen "validation", it means "rates are waived".
Terribly disappointing for an otherwise nice stay. Perfect case of being penny wise and pound foolish as i won't stay there again and will discourage others. This will be lost business you will never realize.

A/C was loud and vibrated throughout the night.
Also, there were 3 people staying but we only got one free bottle of water with the SPG. It is usual to get 3 free water bottles. Especially, when I paid extra money for the third person to be there.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days while moving our son into college at UCSD and I booked our stay with our AAA membership and chose the Executive Club package. The concierges, especially Jolene, were very helpful and friendly, and our stay was made even better because of their great service.
