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!

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.

Lost In La Jolla

I took advantage of a what looked like a good rate on the website thinking that the room might face the alley or the rear of another building. What I received was a small room in the corner over the pool next to a fire escape door. This was one of, maybe, six rooms without a balcony and a kind of wedged-in layout. The pool closes at 10 PM but the noise continued until well after 11:30. The room would be in the luxury catagory in, say, Barstow but it was well below average for the La Jolla area. If you don't want the same type of room, you have pay a $70 or $80 upgrade charge apparently. On the positive, the hotel is serviceable and nicely decorated, serving iced coffee in the afternoon and a nice breakfast bar in the morning. The staff was not only helpful but Very attentive. They addressed the problems with the hot water regulator (kids were getting mildly burned when the cold water abruptly disappeared) quickly and efficiently. Pay for the balcony...at the other end of the building away from the pool.

There is no in-hotel food service beyond the breakfast bar. Walk west half a block and turn right for a wide variety of food selections.

Good except for flacky WIFI

Had to change room to get WIFI. Even then it was spotty. I think it was the concrete walls. I could get great reception in hall, but bad in room. Pretty good location. Had ocean view on 3rd floor. Walk to restaurants and beach. Charging $12.00/day for parking is pricey.
