Beautifully located in the center of La Jolla close to shopping, restaurants and attractions in all directions. The breakfast offered sausages, potatoes, eggs, cereals, fruits, rolls. pastry, bagels,,a variety of juices, teas coffee and milk. We saved at least $30 by eating at the buffet bringing the room cost to $110. This is the FIRST place I'll call for reservations... More

Good hotel that has been recently re-done. Perfect location. Minimal breakfast. I wish they would leave out the powdered eggs etc. Good staff, Standard hotel room. The location is unbeatable, so the hotel is not that important.

This is a friendly, good quality hotel within easy walking distance of many shops and restaurants as well as the ocean. The staff is courteous. A needed renovation of the interior is now in progress. I'd recommend the hotel to solo travelers as well as to families.

Walking distance to beach, shopping and dinning. Breakfast had plenty of choices. Mattress was very uncomfortable and pillows were too hard. I would rather stay in Comfort Inn Suites or Holiday Inn Express.

This hotel has recently been remodeled. Rooms & lobby are tastefully done. My wife booked 6 months in advance, so our room rate was very reasonable, considering location. Our room was spacious with 2 beds, desk with room for 2 chairs, separate seating area in corner, & walk-out balcony. A fridge & HD TV is also in the room, along... More

The best location in La Jolla. Costs half of other oceanside hotels. Nice large rooms, very comfortable bed & pretty good breakfast. Parking is very cramped for $12 a night, but everything else was great.

We always stay at this hotel when visiting our son in La Jolla. It is within walking distance of many downtown restaurants, as well as the scenic walk along the ocean. We always ask for a first floor room off the pool, since these tend to be less noisy than the rooms on the upper floors.

This hotel was in a perfect location for La Jolla and the staff was warm and helpful. The room condition was poor with ripped wall paper and very worn bathroom fixtures. The rugs were worn and looked dirty. We stayed in a room that faced the pool and had a balcony.

Our family rented two rooms for three nights at the BW Plus Inn by the Sea last summer. At the time that we stayed, the hotel was beginning a renovation of all of the rooms (my understanding was that the first floor would be renovated initially). The hotel lobby was beautiful (renovation complete) and the front desk staff was very... More

We picked this place for location because we wanted to stay in the North part of SD. It's a nice location because there are cute shops and eateries within walking distance. BUT, it's very noisy in the alley way behind our "room with a view". Garbage trucks, delivery trucks all morning very early, so don't plan on sleeping late. Then... More
