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.

Great hotel

This is a great hotel in La Jolla, very clean and nice. As long as you don't count to have a quiet breakfast in the morning (included) is a perfect stay for a business traveler also.

OKAY STAY..

We typically stay near Mission Beach but the crowd has become rough so we stayed in La Jolla. Not really an area for kids. Shopping,Dinning is nice. The beach is within blocks of our hotel but not big enough so we ended up in mission beach and del mar. Next time staying in Del Mar. The hotel is not bad for a 3 star hotel, rate was cheap. Staff not friendly and housekeeping didn't clean very well. The coffee maker was not cleaned out and bathroom was okay cleaned.

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.

Big disappointment

The room was not anywhere close to a 3 star rating. The mattress needed help to say the least. The hole in the wall beside the headboard needed to be repaired and the area needed painting. There was no refrigerator or microwave and the coffee maker should have been in an antique shop. The continental breakfast was just "okay", but should be upgraded to rated 3 star. It was just wrong to charge this much for a mediocre room and then charge $12.00 per day for parking. This hotel gives Best Western a bad name.
