Parking Extra; Shower not included

There was a hint of attitude when we came in, but we were exhausted and I thought maybe it was my imagination. The next morning, when I discovered that our shower didn't work (neither did the bath drain), I called the desk. She offered to send a workman up but I declined. When you are relaxing and ready for a shower, a plumber is not welcome, right? Fixing that shower was not going to be a 10 minute fix. The hotel offered nothing and suggested that they would try to get it fixed before we returned. "But maybe you should check the shower when you come in, next time." Are you kidding me? [...]Not having a shower made us change our plans for the day. What a disappointment!!Wayne Kanzig

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

Comfortable hotel

Basic but clean ; no hot tub; expensive area; not much nightlife. Being in San Diego better for nightlife. Neighbourhood too overpriced. Hotels overpriced especially during certain high seasons

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.

OK...for a few minutes at a time

Fruit fly's and mosquitos in room every day due to cleaning staff opening every window. Even with construction in lobby they are so money desperate that they kept the room directly next to the remodel construction booked. yep we were stuck there and it was BS. Lame staff and even lamer $12 parking fee for spaces that are full 90% of the time. AVOID THIS PLACE

Only the lobby has been remodeled

The location of this hotel is excellent however the write up is misleading. All that was remodeled in this hotel was the lobby. The bathroom in our room was less than clean and the water pressure was slightly over a drizzle. Also apparently when booking through [...]they automatically put you in the very first room right off the lobby so that you hear every voice and squeaky door in the building. Can you say WD40? The staff is less than enthusiastic but the beds are very comfortable. OH, and you can park on the street until 10:00AM but the staff won't tell you that, they'd rather charge you $12.00 per night for parking. That's a big rip.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Cross the street out the front entrance of the hotel, turn left and go to the little deli/bistro on the very first corner (on your right). Food was really good and reasonable. Or turn right at that same corner and go about a block to the North and find "The Spot" good food, excellent fish tacos and good service and reasonable prices.

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.
