Good value for what you get

Very nice location within walkable distance. Love the morning hot breakfast, it's not the best but very worth for the value. Will come back again!

Great Location and Very Nice

I've stayed here 2 years in a row, in 2013 and 2014, for Spring break. The staff is pretty good and do whatever you need them to. I had a partial ocean view room with a king bed and it was very beautiful. The room was clean but wasn't anything special. Needless to say, it was good for the price (about $380 for 4 nights). There is also a good complimentary breakfast with more than just pastries. The location is perfect if you don't feel like driving or you want to go get a drink and not drink and drive. Beaches are very close and there are tons of bars and restaurants withing walking distance! I highly recommend this hotel!

Very good value in a great area

Very helpful staff, walking distance to EVERYTHING. Renovations going on, but the noise was kept to a minimum. Free breakfast a very nice surprise. Recommended.

Wonderful Location

This hotel provided a solid three-to-four star level hotel experience. It wasn't glamorous, but it was very functional, and it provided a wonderful value--located a couple of blocks from the coast and in easy walking distance to a variety of shops and restaurants.

great stay

Pleasantly surprised that the inn was so convenient to restaurants and beach. Really enjoyed afternoon tea and coffee in the lobby. Breakfast was more than expected and great seating by the pool indoors or out. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would reccomend this inn to anyone staying in La Jolla. We got an adorable mini crib for the baby which was very convenient too.Thanks Days Inn staff!

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.
