nice stay

2 teenagers and 2 adults in a 2 queen? (maybe doubles) room. Nice balcony, TV and we even had somewhat of a view. Free bottled water, pizza samples in the afternoon (amecicis restaurant) and apples. Continental breakfast nice - sausage, cheese egg scramble, potatoes with peppers and onion, waffles, toast, bagels, pastries and the other usual packaged stuff. It was good for a quick bite. Definitely stay again for the price in La jolla.

Good value at great location

This hotel is great value for the location. The pool is in the shade in the afternoon. And I was missing a safe in the room. The room was nice and clean and good size.

great location near beach and restaurants

This is a somewhat older hotel. The rooms are a bit on the small side. But the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the location is fantastic, with many restaurants, shops, and beautiful beaches all within a 10 minute walk. Good family hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

This area in La Jolla is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline anywhere in California, especially for an urban area. Just leave your car at the hotel and start walking along the shore. Try it at both high tide and low tide.

Stay at the Beach

This is a very pleasant hotel with nice rooms. The staff is very accommodating and the location is terrific. It is downtown La Jolla so everything is within walking distance yet it isn't noisy.

La Jolla Cove

Perfect location, walking distance to beaches, dining, shops, Hotel is upgrading rooms. Breakfast area need some work, could be more central. Parking online was free, but was charged $12.00 per night. Parking on street free , 6pm to 10am. spaces were fairly easy to find. I would return to the Best Western By The Sea. thanks. the Best Western By The Sea. brea

Superb place to stay.

We stayed here whilst visiting family in the area. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant at all times and the room was very comfortable having recently been refurbished. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean even though work was still in progress. Breakfast was served in a room by the pool so we could eat in or outside.Food could also be taken back to the room. Although it said 'continental breakfast' it did include hot food also. We would certainly stay here again if visiting the area.
