We stayed in this hotel a decade ago and chose it again for its location and price. Much to our dismay, the only thing that had changed in that 10 years is the lobby--which looks great. Once we got off the elevator to our floor, the smell of old carpet hit you full force. We had a balcony suite with... More

Manager was extremely accommodating. Our room was clean and very large. There was a nice outdoor patio on the second floor with a view of the water. Keep in mind there is a campground on the beach across from the hotel. There is no access at that point and there are also train tracks. The price was right. We only... More

Excellent shopping & restaurants within walking distance. The beach is one-block. We stayed on the fifth floor and had a partial ocean view, we were able to enjoy the beautiful sunsets every night from our balcony! The room was moderate, the beds very comfortable and the staff was very friendly. Plenty of choices with the complimentary Breakfast. I have already... More

Most attractive feature is the caring, helpful and smiling staff! But the location is awesome - within walking distance of beautiful beaches and wonderful restaurants. Room was extremely clean and bed very comfortable. Very relaxing stay. Thank you!

Family event with many people staying at the hotel. Everyone enjoyed the convenient location to all of La Jolla with a nice quiet area off the main street. Relaxing by the pool, enjoying breakfast and helpful staff. I would stay again.

We upgraded to a high floor ocean view room and loved it. The balcony was large enough for all three of us to sit and watch the sunset. Location of the hotel is a 5 minute walk to the beach and in the center of shops and restaurants. The rooms were clean and pleasant. The only negatives? The pool is... More

Room: Adequate, carpets old and smelly. The balcony is large enough for 2-4 people, overlooking parking. BIGGEST CON: Internet. If you need it, don't stay here. We called in twice for tech support and got nothing; we were informed that the set-up BW has is for a single family home, so when 70 people are online, it gets so slow,... More

wE stayed recently for 3 days. The hotel is an old property but very well kept. The lobby was recently renovated and the complete make over of all rooms is coming. The room was nice and it was an ocean view but the view was obstructed by a large condos building across, regardless you can see the ocean. Breakfast was... More

This hotel was not worth the price. The room decor was outdated. We were placed in a handicapped room on the second floor. We made our reservations 2mo. in advance to secure a nice room with an ocean view. The staff wouldn't accommodate. There was a lot of street traffic noise. La Jolla is a beautiful location however, a room... More
