4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have stayed here many times. Usually the experience is great. But on this occasion I had reserved this room some time ago and checked in early. However, I was given a room on the ground floor across from where the house keepers worked. I asked for an upper floor, but there was nothing. Usually I am on an upper... More

I agree with all of the positive things said recently on this site. We didn't have any knowledge of the hotels in the area, but chose this place based on reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were very happy with the choice. I think we were lucky to get the room with one of, if not the best view... More

I won;t repeat all that been said in other reviews - just to say that we booked this since we were having dinner at the Marine Room that evening - and were extremely happy to have chosen this hotel. The room provided was what we had requested - top floor north end - which had nice partial views. The gentleman... More

We have stayed here many times. First of all it is the least expensive hotel in the center of La Jolla. Next, it is extremely convenient--walking distance to the cove beach, museum and restaurants and galleries. Also plenty of parking (at $12 per night). Free decent breakfast, but while the automatic pancake machine was fun to watch working, the pancakes... More

Tough to beat this one when all things are considered. Price makes this one a winner hands down. The bed was great, the breakfast was really good. I was on the fifth floor on the front side of the building. Great location. Parking I about $12 a day. Everything is within walking distance. I had dinner on the room and... More

Stayed in several hotels in La Jolla but this place is hard to beat for it's location, features, and cleanliness. It is adjacent to downtown LJ, The staff and facility are friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean and up to date. Each room comes with a balcony providing a nice view.

Everyone was helpful and inviting. it is close to all kinds of shops, Coffee houses, ice cream parlors, churches etc. It is a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to and we could see the...

The upgrade to an ocean view room was well worth it. Ocean is in the distance but can hear the waves. Trash collection in the morning was annoying and having a water repair where water unexpectedly turned off for 4 hours was inconvenient. But location was excellent, room with balcony was comfortable, and we would consider going back again.

Cute hotel, not to far from the ocean. Lots of great shopping spots and restaurants within walking distance. This hotel had one of the best breakfasts- eggs, sausage, pancakes, cereal, instant oatmeal, yogurt,, sweet breads, etc. the helper was very helpful. We ate breakfast outside, by the pool, it was very nice. The day we came in, there were apples... More
