I just finished staying 4 nights at this hotel. It was terrible. I will start off with the room. The day/night covering was too small and did not fit the window. We stayed in a suite with a pull out couch bed. This old nasty mattress was so bad the springs stuck out at the bottom. The bathroom is super... More

My sister and I stayed at the Jolla Cove Suites for 5 nights and were not impressed at all by the noise in the hotel, the quality of the rooms and by the terrible smell left by the seals. We would have to cover our noses every time we left the hotel until we were far enough away to not... More

The La Jolla Cove Suites is neither a very nice house nor is it particularly cheap, but you can have (if you are wiilling to pay for a view with ocean view) one of the most spectacular views on the Pacific in Southern California. The rooms there are spacious but not particularly nicely furnished and in the corrdiors, stairwells and... More

This location is hard to beat. We watched whales from our room one time we visited. Do not make the mistake of picking a two bedroom suite. The rooms are very small and awkward, and in serious need for fixing up. The one-bedroom suites are better -- and much fresher, too. We did not try the breakfast here, but walked... More

The location is terrific, staff are wonderful, complimentary breakfasts are plentiful. I particularly liked the roof top restaurant with stunning ocean views. We stayed in a 2 bedroom / 2 bath suite. Very spacious. The kitchen and bathrooms are in need of a refurb, but the rooms and furniture is all very good. The pool deck is very nice and... More

I love to sit on the balcony and people watch as I sit and sip on a nice glass of wine ... the best place to just relax when you need to decompress ! and the continental breakfast in the morning over looking the ocean is a fabulous !

We decided to try La Jolla Cove Suites again this past week, after a 7-year break from it. I had read a few recent reviews about LJCS and it seemed like they might have improved in some areas. Since we love the Cove area, we decided to give it another try. The previous time we stayed here (2007) the noise... More

Spent a wonderful 6 nights at the La Jolla Cove Suites - 72 and sunny EVERY DAY! Sea lions harping, scuba/snorkeling day/night, tourists rolling in and out of Scripps Park.

Most of their rooms look awesome from the pictures, but if you try to save money with a good deal at this hotel you'll regret it. They boast 95 percent of their rooms face the ocean, and they do, but if you think "I don't need an ocean view" you'll regret it. The room my girlfriend and I got stuck... More

Dear Ersheajr, We are sorry your stay was disappointing. As you mentioned, we do have larger rooms that may have been better suited for you. Our standard rooms (without a view) are meant as sleeping rooms only and are perfect if you will be spending most of your time out in the village or at the beach. We hope that... More

Location could not be better, especially with a balcony overlooking the ocean. So nice to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Certain days we did experience the aroma coming from the direction of the sea lions, but it was not constant and did not impact the overall quality of the stay. We had a small 'kitchenette', really just... More
