For those wanting to snag hot travel deals, we were always taught to book early or no sooner than two weeks ahead of time for any hope in saving money. But HotelTonight has totally changed the way the travel and hospitality industry works, and has taught deal savvy consumers that you DON'T have to book early to save 50% or more on your hotel stay. In fact, they've made it an industry norm to snag a genuine last minute deal after 12pm on the same day. If you were as skeptical as we were, we put HotelTonight to the test!
Our recent stay at the Estancia La Jolla Resort and Spa in San Diego was so peaceful and relaxing! I'm sure that sounds like any other hotel, but when you factor in four (4) children ranging in age from 13 through 3, you understand where I'm coming from. And after a 5-hour road trip, the last thing we want to worry about is where the six of us are going to stay! HotelTonight had a variety of hotel choices that can satisfy any type of traveler. We checked into Estancia La Jolla Resort and Spa after 10-hours of our LegoLand adventures to rest up, and it was AMAZING! First class service all the way! They gave us complimentary Margaritas at their Mustangs and Morros bar, Voss water ready for us in our rooms, wireless internet throughout the property, and a friendly staff to direct us to recommended things to do. Highly recommend if you're visiting San Diego!
We had the best night's sleep EVER! I absolutely love how cozy and comfy our rooms were and we had a spacious wrought iron balcony with a beautiful garden view! They thought everything through to make sure our stay was perfect. And the location was central to everything we need – grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations were all just a two-minute drive. Estancia La Jolla Resort and Spa's concierge were great at recommending and providing directions to the best places to go. After retreating in our rooms, we spent the afternoon enjoying the La Jolla Shores Beach (just a 5-minute drive away from the hotel) on the most perfect 80 degree day.
I couldn't believe how inexpensive the hotel was through HotelTonight! So just how easy was booking a room in the moment at HotelTonight?
- Open the HotelTonight app after 12pm (your time zone) to see the day's hottest hotels at rock bottom rates.
- Choose the city
- Scroll through the choice of hotels and check out the room's reviews, amenities, features, and more all within the HotelTonight smartphone app.

We've since then used HotelTonight a few times, and every experience was the same easy to check-in experience: arrive at the main lobby, provide our name, driver's license and credit card. The room was booked and ready to go, and it only took a few minutes to receive our room key. A very easy and streamlined process! And if there were ever any questions or concerns I had regarding my room, my rate, or overall experience – HotelTonight's customer service was fast, friendly, professional, and made sure our experience was satisfactory. The process was by far beyond what we could've ever expected!
