Hotel Curio is modern, clean and so comfortable. The staff is wonderful. The hotel is located in the perfect spot- away from the bustle of the cove but within a short walking distance of the beach and some great restaurants

Greetings tisssh2021, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. The team and myself are extremely thankful that we received such a positive review from you. This last year has been a year unlike any other. As I am sure you have seen, most are eager this year to discuss their displeasure with hotels and businesses. Our reviews have simply not been as positive as we would care for due to this. Our of the several 1000s that we have the pleasure to welcome each month, the guests that seem to want to share their experiences focus on that of how terrible we are as a hotel and also who we are as hoteliers. Your review did the contrary and I cannot begin to tell you what a breath of fresh air it was to reach that we were exactly what you were looking for through all aspects. I am hopeful that this year can be a chapter that many of us look back to and forget. However it has certainly taught us countless lessons and as people, professionals serving our guests, we eager to move forward and to continue to do our best with every effort to receive more positive reviews such as yours. You are welcome back at any time and please reach out to me and I will personally look after you. Best to you and yours! Mike

Hotel's Favourite
A well-kept hotel with outstanding service. Dog friendly. Extra amenities like brown paper packaged lunch and water. Sheldon was extremely friendly. I was recommended by a friend, Maurice and he was totally correct about this place that is conveniently located near the highway. Beautiful scenic sunsets a great addition to this hotel.

2 night stay 6/15/2021 and 6/16/2021 DIRTY! OLD! STAINED ,POOR FITTED BED LINEN!!!!!!! What a nightmare. We booked a 2 night stay in a deluxe King Room. When we entered the lobby we knew we made a mistake but we had already returned our rental car and we were stuck. We were informed contrary to what was stated on their website the restaurant was only open at night.So breakfast was not an option. We asked if they offered complimentary coffee in the lobby they said no, there is a Starbucks down the road. We had had 2 amazing stays at 2 other California Hotels before coming to La Jolla Curio Hotel and although due to Covid services were limited, their restaurants were open and there was always complimentary coffee in the lobby the the service was impeccable. I asked for towels, after 3 hour wait no-one brought them to our room I had to go down to the lobby to get them myself. But here is what was absolutely ruined our stay. The bed linens were dirty and stained and the fitted sheet was too small to completely cover the mattress. The only choice, sleep without them on the bed, Totally Gross!!! never had such an experience in ANY hotel before. When I returned to New York I called to report tis problem and ask for a refund ( or partial refund) I was told they contacted the hotel but they denied my request. I asked if a supervisor or someone from corporate head quarters could contact me. I WAS ASSURED that someone would contact me within 24 hours to 48 hours. Nobody ever did. Even as valued gold members our problem was not resolved and was completely dismissed. NEVER AGAIN!

Greetings Jeffrey2379, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and your experience with us. I would first and foremost like to apologize for the challenges, especially the linens that were on your bed. This is not to our standard, and I am baffled by how that was on a bed. We do have all our linens handled by a third party however we ourselves should have caught this. I will be sharing these pictures with our team as well as our laundry company to figure out where the disconnect is. Additionally, we have been trying to get our restaurant open fully but due to staffing and occupancy limitations we have not been able to open it fully. Thankfully we usually have decent occupancy on the weekends so we are able to comfortably open it, however it still remains a challenge. I did check out logs that we keep to see what may have happened and I don't have the request noted down here. I would like to apologize as we do keep track and I will speak with the team as to ensuring that we are tracking and also that the wait time you outlined is unacceptable. Finally, regretfully, I we usually get a note from Hilton when there is a guest issue. I will look into this and see where the disconnect happened. I know that an apology does not recreate a bad stay. I do apologize. Please reach out to me if you ever consider giving us another try down the road. Best, Mike

My wife checked in at 11am. One person at the desk and she inquired about assistance with luggage. (She dropped me off at a clients earlier so I am not there to help her). She was told that she would have to carry all the luggage on her own. They pointed to a luggage rack. At the restaurant (touted as a great one), the menu is more like a bar menu, (burger, pizza, chicken fingers). The waitress takes an order and promptly forgets to put it in. 30 minutes later we are still waiting for water and silverware. When we ask to the table to be setup, we ask how much longer for the food, this is when she asks what we ordered. She forgot we even ordered so we had to reorder. On the next day when we came back from our meetings at 6pm, the room was still not made up. We called and were informed that due to COVID we needed to request to have the room cleaned and made. I completely understand, but it would have been nice if they informed my wife and perhaps had a note in the room that explained this. At checkout of course, no one to help with luggage. This hotel is supposed to be on the top end of Hilton's line of hotels. With a great location and great views of the ocean you would expect a higher level of service. We are greatly disappointed and will not stay there again. We have been loyal Hilton brand customers for over 20 years and this hotel is not worth the money. If you need to stay in La Jolla, go to Torrey Pines Hilton.

Greetings richardlG2742EY, Thank you first and foremost for taking the time to submit a review about your/ your wife's recent experience with us. I would personally like to apologize for the areas in which we missed the mark in delivering hospitality and service that we are known for. We were pleased to be able to get your wife in early in the day. With our normal check in at 4:00pm on a Friday when she arrived, usually we cannot get our guests in that early with our check out time of 11:00a. However I know that there was some work at the desk to get her a great room. As you had outlined in the morning, we do have limited team members on and I apologize that there was only one person at the desk that morning. We have had limited staffing recently due to COVID and we are in the process of bringing back more of our team member as we are starting to ramp up in occupancy due to the summer months ahead. Also, as it seems the largest let down was the error that the server made in the restaurant. I would also like to apologize for that as well. Again, similar to our front desk, we are operating with limited team members in the restaurant. Its not been easy to bring back most as the outlet has been closed for over a year. Those that have come back its taken work to get them here and we are extremely thankful to be able to have team members who are dedicated to our hotel and restaurant. At our front desk there are two large signs, during the reservation process, on our website, on our confirmations, we do outline the limited availability and housekeeping services that we provide. I am certain that at check in we should have told her verbally, but at the same time, there was a lot of focus on getting your wife in early. As I am sure that you noticed, there are limited items in the room - we have done away with pens and paper, reading material and the like to limit the items that are touched. The housekeeping protocol is a hilton standard and its for your protection as well as ours. I appreciated your acknowledging our great location. We are hopeful that as we continue to crawl out of the pandemic, our services and outlets will and can return to normal. I am sorry that you will not stay here again based upon the limited services and team members that we are able to offer during this time. Its not typical, and as I am sure you have seen most hotels are limited in their offerings. Those that are not, have been able to bounce back quicker then others, and we wish that was us. However the impact has been truly felt. If I can ever be assistance to you presently or in the future, I am willing to extend a hand at any time. Best to you and your wife during this abnormal time... Mike

Greetings vivianasilva17, Thank you first and foremost for taking the time to submit a review on your recent experience with us. We depend heavily on our guests sharing their experiences with others in order to have the opportunity to welcome new guests. Over this last year, we have all had our challenges. When our guest express their appreciation, highlight amenities, and the service that they received while they were here goes a long way for us. Our restaurant as you were able to enjoy is slowly starting to open. As its been closed for roughly a year, assembling back the team, re inventorying, and slowly increasing occupancy have been areas in which we putting effort so that we can get it open again. We are pleased that the girls enjoyed the pool! Hopefully we can welcome you all back sooner then later! Best, Mike
