Grande Colonial Hotel
Amazing stay in La Jolla
Amazing place - probably our favorite place to stay in La Jolla. The service is excellent, and the restaurant on site (NineTen) is superb for both a fancy dinner and an amazing breakfast. Rooms are clean, comfortable and the hotel has a ton of character. Highly recommend!

Close to the Coast
The Grande Colonial is a very pleasant old timer (100 years old) ideally situated a couple of blocks from the coast and is within walking distance to good restaurants, shops and a large grocery. I tend to gravitate to older, well maintained establishments and this is a fine example of the type.
