Overall a wonderful visit

A great view and easy walking throug La Jolla. The rooms are madern and comfortale. Their breakfasts were hot and varied (we stayed a week). I had worried about the staff since old reviews indicated some issues, but they were all friendly and eager to help.The heat was on in zones and became very warm on the 4th floor. TV didn't appear hooked up right and was extrememly fuszzy. Finally the Wi-fi reception was weak and spotty.

Great experience

I was visiting UC San Diego for one week. Comparing to other good hotels near the campus. For those plan to visit UC San Diego and enjoy the ocean view, I highly recommend this hotel if you have a car.

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!

Perfect location for downtown La Jolla

The housekeeping staff was not very thorough or consistent, but the front desk was very helpful. The breakfast was not very good and we saw them bring it in uncovered in a pick-up truck.

Did not expect to pay for overnight parking that was readily available and. The walls were paper thin and heard noises from above and adjacent. Staff was snotty.

Very satisfied with Inn by the Sea

Very good value, smack in the center of all the action. We would not hesitate to return. Breakfast was not gourmet but definitely much better than the muffin we've been treated to at other locations. Here, quiche and hashed potatoes are offered, as well as yogurt, OJ, Apple juice, and milk.
