-Nice location, easy to find
-Friendly staff and easy check-in at the lobby
-Comfortable bed and spacious room
-Breakfast was AMAZING! We got grapefruit juice, coffee and build your own omelette as part of the breakfast buffet :D Excellent service in the restaurant
Cons (mostly in the room):
-There were smudges on the toilet seat (between where your legs are when you sit)
-I couldn't tell if the refrigerator was plugged in and did not want to bother with the unreachable plugs
-I also did not want to bother with the coffee machine as it probably should have been on the table with clear instructions
-There were no liners on the trash cans or extra bags (we got only one bag for ice)
-The hair dryer had dust/hair on it (in my 20 years of using a hair dryer, I never got any dust on my hair dryer!)
-There were M&M's on the floor under the bed
-The time was not set based on Daylight Savings Time
-After we checked out at the lobby and confirmed that our parking was free, we were very unclear on where to turn in the room keys, even after we asked. We inserted the key to get out of the lot, but the machine didn't accept our room keys. Hope we don't get charged for them!
For the price, I wouldn't pick this hotel again due to the price and the fact that the cleanliness standards weren't up to par
I've stayed here a few times before. The rooms have been renovated very tastefully and the service has improved. ALL the workers I came across were very helpful and friendly. The only drawback was that I could hear the toilet flushing (louder than most hotels) from the room above me. Otherwise, it was great. Also, I got stuck in a long elevator line because a large meeting just finished so I hiked up 12 stories to my room.
the room was nice , could have been bigger.
the parking was not worth paying since we still had to go around to get in our room.
the pricing on the coffee pot could have been better way over priced compared to the marriot suites.
the staff was super nice!
The location of the hotel on the Torrey Pines golf course with ocean views makes for a spectacular setting. It was all good and the grounds are nice. Parking was expensive, so read the fine print. Limited contact with staff was excellent. Room and amenities were fine, but not extraordinary.
When I walked into the room at around 10PM the light was on and the sliding glass door was opened slightly. That was a really nice touch having had a long day to come into a softly lit, quiet room that had the clean smell of the ocean air. It was really nice.

Awesome location, walking distance to shop/eat/drink. Hotel is extremely dated but as clean as a really old room can be. Staff is nice. Great view if have balcony. Interior rooms are really terrible. 😁

The Estancia is our favorite, go to hotel when we need a little getaway. Living in San Diego, we have lots of hotels to choose from and always come back to Estancia. The staff is wonderful, but the facility is tucked away so we feel as if we truly got away, even though we are 15 minutes from our home - haha!
