I came in a day early for a conference and wanted a place for just Saturday night and a single night stay was allowed at this hotel. The location is perfect - right in the heart of La Jolla. I had a very nice experience. The desk staff were very polite and helpful, they called when I went to my... More

This was a really good hotel. Great parking in the middle of La Jolla. Rooms large and recent refurbished. Efficient registration and free wi-fi was very fast and reliable. Breakfast was included and a good start to the day. Would come again.

Enjoyed our stay - very well located. Would have preferred a room on one of the upper floors (we were on the 1st floor) so we might have been able to enjoy a view of something other than well manicured ficus trees.

There were a couple notable issues with this location; mainly to do with check-in experience, esthetics, and food. When I checked in, I wasn't given the normal general information that most hotels would provide right up front (i.e. about breakfast and parking). I was very off-put by this experience. I felt that because this location is in a great location... More

We were in La Jolla on business. From the moment we walked into the lobby you can just feel how unfriendly the staff was. Not even a "hello, how are you today?". Anytime we walked through the lobby the staff heads were down because they did not want to make eye contact with you and then might have to speak... More

Some of the reviews for this hotel were not very positive, but our entire experience was. They are doing extensive remodeling, but our room and all the areas we saw were already very nice. The staff was very friendly and responsive. The complimentary breakfast was very good except for the orange juice. Being in California we did not expect orange... More

I was a chaperone for a group at the La Jolla Rough Water Swim, but even so the cost was more than I liked. The walls/floors/ceilings are too thin and the other patrons are not being polite. The buffet was quite adequate. The hotel offers parking to patrons and a place to rest & store items which is badly needed... More

Beautifully situated in one of America's most beautiful cities, Best Western Inn by the Sea, La Jolla, is a perfect choice. Everyone working there is very helpful and always pleasant. The rooms are comfortable and provide convenient amenities. Whether alone or traveling with someone, I would highly recommend this hotel.
