Best Western has awesome views of the La Jolla Cove and is in walking distance. DId not realize they had a parking fee. Breakfast was just ok and you had to walk through the pool area to get to it. I would definitely stay here again.

Very much enjoyed our room and hotel location. Really enjoyed the breakfast and our balcony view. We luckily timed our on street parking so that we were free of tickets and didn't have to pay hotel parking fees. however we had to park on the street to just check in, a little inconvenient , I could have been upset that...

The hotel is tucked away on a side street. I believe it is in the process of being updated, which it badly needs. It's an average hotel overpriced for what you get, but still not a bad deal considering where you are: a short walk to La Jolla Cove and Prospect St, where many of the restaurants are. It's a...

This hotel was perfectly located near the coves and lots of restaurants. The beds were very comfortable. Upgrade to an ocean view and ask for a higher floor to have a wonderful view of the sunset over the ocean - the view of the ocean and surrounding town itself was beautiful too. The free breakfast was just ok, but later... More

The hotel was in a great location! Just a short walk to the beach and the village. We stayed on the 4th floor so views were great! The rooms could use an update but they were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was pretty basic but good enough to get your day going.

Great front desk help. Rewards upgrade. 2 streets from the beach and parking on-site keeps the frustrating La Jolla parking issues to a minimum. Walking to many restaurants and beaches. Did not stay in one the upgraded rooms but hear they will be standard throughout soon. Ours was still very comfortable.

The Best Western Plus Inn By the Sea's location is perfect because it is in walking distance to the beach, all the shops and restaurants. The hotel is beginning to renovate its rooms, but we did not get one of the newer rooms. Our room was clean and the beds were pretty comfortable. We faced the front of the hotel... More

The hotel is in a great location in La Jolla...close to beach, village, shops, restaurants. The hotel is scheduled for the rooms to be remodeled in late 2014. Greatly needed since rooms dated and carpet rather bare and stained. Once complete this hotel would be perfect for a stay in La Jolla. Breakfast ok but very limited seating for the... More

Clean; good service; rooms need to be updated; comfortable bed; continental breakfast poor; close to everything-leave the car and just walk to Cove, shops, restaurants etc. Staff is great. Gave me check out extension and 3 rooms close together for my family. Helped us find good dining spots.

We stayed here for 1 night on our way up North. We paid for the cheapest room which is on the ground floor. We got upgrades to one on the 3rd floor which was much nicer. One of the only hotels I know of that gives anyone over 50 a senior discount. Usually it is 62 or 65. It was... More
