We like this hotel bc of the location & price. walking distance to restaurants and the beach. The staff is always nice, except this time the manager was very very rude to our 6 yr old regarding wearing a mask. we were nowhere near anyone and its hard for him to keep it on bc he has respiratory issues. she could have been polite about it, but she made a scene and basically scolded him and myself about it as we were waiting for the elevator. I didn't appreciate that at all. also, we never got housekeeping service even though they should've come by at least once. the rest of the staff was very courteous and their restaurant is good as well, good food, great staff. all in all, a decent stay.

Really fast and easy check in, room was available right away! The staff is friendly! Overall a pleasant experience!

Great location can walk to anywhere you want shopping center,restaurant,Beach. Friendly staff. But the room wall so thin I can hear everyone talking from there room.

Within walking distance to beach shopping and restaurants

Convenient location. “Ocean view” is a bit of a stretch. You can see the ocean, but you get more of a view of the parking and other buildings. Bed was only partially made in the morning, and tub wouldn’t drain. Overheard a lady complain about hair in the bathroom and on towels.

Location to La Jolla is ideal -- we didn't have a car and never found ourselves wanting one. It reminds me of the perfect family hotels of the 1950s and 1960s where you got a great room to hang out in, a nice lobby without costing an arm and a leg.

Lost hot water one morning and had to take a shower across the street at the La Jolla Sports Club. Also the tub drain was slow and had to be fixed the same day. Staff was attentive to the problems and fixed the same day.

Great location, happy with room, friendly & helpful staff

Convenient to restaurants and shops. The whole staff was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Great location, friendly staff and a view of the ocean. All good!

Staff is super friendly and helpful. Nice to be so close to the beach.

Great location, close to everything, friendly staff

Not worth 300 the night Not clean staff rude when you needed something or had a question

Good location, no frills, some staff a bit crabby, happy with our stay

Room was nice and beds comfortable. The have filtered water dispensers in the hallway, so no need to buy bottled water, just bring a reusable bottle. Parking was OK, but had no issues. Didn’t realize they charged per night to park when I booked. Still, would stay here again. Could easily walk to places for breakfast and dinner.

I'd probably like anywhere in La Jolla that was clean and close to the beach, but the rooms were nice and so were the people. Oh, and the water to save plastic bottles. I also liked the coupons: we tried the two cafes for our breakfast coffee; great coffee town!

Fantastic location steps away from the beach, restaurants, shopping and entertainment, friendly hotel staff.
