The hotel itself is just ok. However, it is in a fabulous location. La Jolla seems to be quite expensive and this was a relatively cheap option. It is located very close by to the main shopping area and is less than a five minute walk to the beach/seal watching area. Otherwise, it is just a very basic hotel with... More

A really nice hotel in a prime location. 5 mins walk from the beach and the downtown shopping area. The twin room was clean and spacious and the beds very comfortable. I rate most hotels on the quality of their showers and this one was a solid 3/5. Not powerful but a large shower head and a strong stream. The... More

This hotel is just ok - it is reasonably affordable compared to other La Jolla hotels and has a great location right in La Jolla Village close to shops and restaurants. A great thing is that parking is included and complimentary (parking can be hard to find in La Jolla). Breakfast is included and is just ok - standard cereal,... More

This is a hard hotel to review. I am very familiar with the San Diego area and hotels are very expensive if you want a good location. La Jolla is a prime destination and this hotel is ideally located near the beach and main shopping area. In all other aspects, it is totally average. Nothing really bad, but nothing great.... More

My overall of BW is that they have: (1) Resonable Costs, (2) Conveniently Located where we had traveled, (3) Great Accomodations, (5) Professional and Friendly Staffs in every Levels in the Organization, and (6) Very Clean and Comfortable Room. Both my Wife and I are definitely thinking for staying with BW again whenever we travel in the country.

We stayed one night at this hotel. We arrived around 9 P.M. There was no where to leave our car to check in so my husband had to stay in the car and circle around until I got the room . Then parking was challenging. The back parking area (down a side alley) was also full. We had to use... More

Enjoyed two nights at this hotel. They were updating the rooms, but it didn't cause us any issues with noise. etc. Everyone was very friendly, the breakfast was quite good with adequate seating, and the location of the hotel can't be beat. I would stay here again on my next visit.

This is an average hotel in a great location. It is a very good value in La Jolla. The rooms are clean and adequate. The internet was well below average and the water pressure in the shower was barely adequate. The breakfast was average for Best Western. We have had better and worse. Overall, if you are vacationing and want... More

Hotel was okay and I expect the hotel to be better once the remodel is complete. Very close to everything and convenient. Breakfast was average. Parking is in the back and somewhat secure. Staff helpful, but not able to give information about areas outside of La Jolla.
