Nice but had higher expectationsPosted Mar 25, 2015
Pros: It is very conviniently located and staff are very nice.
Cons: I thought our room was over furnished for its size. Maybe smaller size or less furnitures.
Location: Location is great. Nice dining. Our main vacation purpose was just to relax so we didn't do much.
The location and staff are great. The only disappointment was the view. I paid for a king size room with water view. However, the main view from my room was parking and roofs. I had partial view of the pacific. The room size was also small with no tub just small standing shower. I had higher expecations based on the daily room rate.

They gave my prepaid room away to someone else.Posted Mar 24, 2015
Cons: They could be ethical. You do not give away a prepaid room to someone else.
When I arrived at the hotel I was informed that they had given away my ocean view room to someone else and would I accept an inferior room with a peak at the ocean. The room they offered me was half as big as a motel 6 room. Since they did not have the room we ordered and no other comparable rooms available, we left and booked a motel 6 room that was twice as big. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!

Weekend Get AwayPosted Feb 24, 2015
La Valencia was highly recommended by friends. The location was perfect tucked in the center of all the shopping and dining areas but overlooking the ocean... just gorgeous. Our room had a beautiful ocean view. The hotel has a new section and older section (renovated from 1920's) so be sure to ask for a room that suits your taste. The staff was attentive and friendly.

EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! THE HOTEL AMBIENCE IS CHARMING AND FOR A HOTEL THAT IS 80 YEARS OLD, IT WAS IMMACULATE. THE LOCATION IS GREAT-NEVER DROVE THE CAR-EVERYTHING IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE. BEAUTIFUL VIEW AND GROUNDS-I WISH THE BALCONY HAD BEEN LARGER WITH FURNITURE, SO WE COULD SIT OUTSIDE AND LISTEN TO THE OCEAN-THE ONLY DRAWBACK. CONCIERGE SENT US A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE AND CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES-NICE ADDED TOUCH.
