Great Couples Get-a-Way

We were amazed that these rooms were available during the high summer vacation season. The price was much lower than many other hotels in the area, but the accommodations and amenities were excellent. The hotel looked newly refurbished and fresh. The free breakfast buffet was more than expected with several hot foods, and a daily newspaper was an added bonus. We'll definitely stay here again!

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

We enjoyed walking the trails along the cove. The trail north starts behind the La Jolla Cave Store. There were many picturesque areas for a camera. Wear good hiking/walking shoes.

fantastic location in the village, very helpful staff

Got there 2 hrs early. Not a problem. Asked to be moved to a first floor room. Not a problem. Asked if I could leave my car out front. Not a problem. Asked for extra towels, extra coffee. Not a problem. We were only there for one night, but the location is great. The rooms are in need a a facelift, but we paid to be in heart of the village and we were. You could walk everywhere. I would stay there again. My son loved the fact that breakfast was available next to the pool making it easy for an early morning swim. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff. Room had a fridge and a microwave too which is great when traveling with little ones.

great vacation

The staff was super attentive. We got fresh towels every day automatically. The bar staff knew us by name and drink after one happy hour there. They even recommended that we sneak up to the 10th floor to the Skyroom to check it out even though it was closed. Great venue there with a view for small private parties.

Very convenient, but a little run down

Pros: Excellent location, right down town. Pleasant balcony overlooking the village and the hotel pool. Cons: Overpriced parking fees. Very limited parking. Older rooms in serious need of renovation. Inconsistent water temperature in the shower (from okay to scalding hot to ice cold).

View of the ocean

Enjoyable, walked to the Cove, and other spots along the water. Ate at Amicis and other within walking distance restaurants. I had missed knowing there was a parking charge of $12.00 per day so that was a surprise. We were in San Diego and did the Seal ride and went to the Zoo; both enjoyable. Drove to Carlsbad to view the flower fields; they were awesome. We were happy to be near the water and gave the view. Look forward to returning to the newly renovated rooms as advertised.

Mr.

upon checking in to hotel we were told that there would be a $12 charge for parking. I do not see anywhere that there would be this charge. I believe we stayed at this hotel a little over a year and don not remember of a parking charge. Also on your billing no parking is shown. Thomas A Reser

Great spot for visit to family

The location was perfect and for Spring it wasn't crowded. WiFi not always spot on and elevator had to be repaired. Very much appreciated the all day coffee/iced coffee and lovely apples left in the afternoon. Great to have newspaper delivered to room when we requested it. Did not appreciate the $12 parking fee (I understand why, but wish that were eliminated in future). Breakfast was very good, and open for good amount of time. Very friendly staff. We'll come again.
