Great Location and Very Nice

I've stayed here 2 years in a row, in 2013 and 2014, for Spring break. The staff is pretty good and do whatever you need them to. I had a partial ocean view room with a king bed and it was very beautiful. The room was clean but wasn't anything special. Needless to say, it was good for the price (about $380 for 4 nights). There is also a good complimentary breakfast with more than just pastries. The location is perfect if you don't feel like driving or you want to go get a drink and not drink and drive. Beaches are very close and there are tons of bars and restaurants withing walking distance! I highly recommend this hotel!

Very helpful staff, walking distance to EVERYTHING. Renovations going on, but the noise was kept to a minimum. Free breakfast a very nice surprise. Recommended.

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

A daily walk by the La Jolla Cove is a great start to any morning. The seals bark and the waves beckon...lovely!

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.

Visiting relatives at La Jolla

First time at this hotel. Good location, right in the La Jolla Village. Not far from the ocean. Breakfast room (tables, counters) not cleaned, the staff from time to time only added some supplies. Orange juice came from the refrigerator frozen. Pastries not quite fresh. Interior decor (of the rooms) needs some refreshing. Lobby is OK.

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.
