When I stay at the Best Western Inn by the Sea in La Jolla, I am as comfortable as when I am at home.The staff are great and go out of their way to make sure I have what I need. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable.

Stayed here for a wedding event at the La Jolla Women's Club. This hotel was a 3 minute walk from this venue. It was also within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, beach, seal watching, and parks. Rooms are very nice and comfortable. We had a balcony overlooking the pool and some rooms on other side had ocean views. Loved having... More

The hotel was very located close to shopping and the ocean. We stayed on a Monday night and several of the restuarants were closed that were in walking distance. The room was very clean and the decor was nice. As always the beds were comfortable. This hotel charges for parking but does not publish it on their site...so the cost... More

It definitely needs some upgrade and remodeling and to remove the mold from the bathroom. It also needs the personnel able to cope with the traffic during the breakfast time. To much money for less than average performance. Location is the plus.

We found this hotel to be a great value. Centrally located, clean room, nice extras like 2 free bottled water and chocolates, the beds were comfortable and the view from upper ocean side room was fabulous (worth the little extra). Great assortment of breakfast options. You do need to pay a little extra for the parking. Walk-able distance to outstanding... More

We stayed here to attend a training course in San Diego, instead of actually staying in SD. Great decision. Being able to park the car at the end of the day and stroll around La Jolla was a delight. Lots of restaurants, shops, museums and - of course - the beach. We spent one sunset watching a colony of seals... More

The Inn by the Sea in La Jolla is a good moderately-priced hotel (less than $200.) in the high-priced town of La Jolla. Many of the rooms have ocean views. An ongoing refurbishment is nearly finished, with the rooms tastefully furnished. The room I occupied still had the old style bathroom, but many have been redone. Each room has a... More

Great location, convenient parking and several rooms with a balcony that provide a scenic view of the ocean. The service in this hotel is outstanding and the hot breakfast is a good way to start the day. There are several good restaurants in the neighbourhood.

We found this recently updated hotel to serve our needs and preferences nicely. The hotel was clean, the bed comfortable, the staff responsive and friendly, the balcony roomy for 2 with a pleasant city and partial ocean view, and the location very convenient. We kept our car parked for much of our stay. Walks to the beach areas, shopping, tennis... More

The shower was the worst. The pressure was low-flow and the temperature was NEVER consistent. Either it was so hot that if felt like your flesh was being burnt off your body, or it would be freezing cold! I would always switch back and forth, back and forth... This was everyday for 8 straight days. The ventilation was horrible. The... More
