My husband and I stayed here for a friend's wedding. I made the reservation weeks in advance and was never told the hotel was under construction. We were woken up early on both Saturday and Sunday mornings to the banging going on above us. The hallway floors were lined with plastic, but it still felt dirty and there were mattresses... More

I spent three miserable nights in this hotel. The room smelled moldy, there was only one outlet to charge my phone clear across the room from the desk in which case my phone had to charge in the floor, and there was an insufferable "clanging" sound every 10 minutes throughout the night. I'm not sure if it was the air... More

This Hotel is an awesome place to stay when visiting San Diego sights. Just a 20 minute drive but here you have the ocean view and a few minute walk to the beach. Beautiful La Jolla shops and restaurants are adjacent to the hotel. Wonderful staff, very helpful and welcoming to this beautiful hotel!

If you stay in a handicap room then those handicap spots should be reserved for you this hotel not the reason you have a handicap room is because you are handicap and can not walk long distances, not here not reserved for the handicap rooms.

We stayed here for two nights and the location was wonderful, close to the shore, shopping and dining. We brought some work in hoping that we have decent internet connection to respond to email and research. Unfortunately, the internet connection was so slow and constantly asking us to relog in to the network. We gave us after about an hour.... More

Years ago I spent a week in a more expensive hotel in La Jolla, both for business and pleasure. My wife and I came back to La Jolla because it is a marvelous place, great temperature in winter and especially the seals on the coast. Best Western hotel is a fine place to stay on walking distance of the boulevard.... More

This was the perfect location for a visit to La Jolla. We were able to park the car and walk to most things and the hotel staff were very pleasant and the prices were reasonable for the area. The breakfast in the mornings included eggs and sausage in addition to the regular continental breakfast type fare. The rooms were clean... More

Make sure you ask for the 4th floor and the seaside part of the hotel. Parking a little rough because of construction, but the view from above is great! Easy to walk to all of the city. Free apples for healthy snacks and the honey-nut cheerios keep you snack-filled from the morning breakfast that is included. I love the options... More

We stayed here for five nights while in La Jolla. Many restaurants, shops and shoreline walks are very convenient, The hotel is within 20 minutes of most San Diego tourist locations. The staff is outstanding. I would strongly recommend La Jolla and the Best Western by the Sea as base to explore the San Diego area.

This hotel offers a great location, along with very helpful staff and what seemed to be good value. I would use this facility again. It is very convenient to all the sites, shopping, and restaurants in the La Jolla area. We were able to walk to all of the downtown places. I would recommend to friends and family.
