I was a chaperone for a group at the La Jolla Rough Water Swim, but even so the cost was more than I liked. The walls/floors/ceilings are too thin and the other patrons are not being polite. The buffet was quite adequate. The hotel offers parking to patrons and a place to rest & store items which is badly needed... More

Beautifully situated in one of America's most beautiful cities, Best Western Inn by the Sea, La Jolla, is a perfect choice. Everyone working there is very helpful and always pleasant. The rooms are comfortable and provide convenient amenities. Whether alone or traveling with someone, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Looking for a clean and low cost hotel right by the ocean in La Jolla San Diego? This ocean view hotel has nice ocean views from one side of the hotel, a great breakfast and is close to everything. I got a discounted rate on my room by calling the 800-632-1698 toll free number. I would recommend this hotel to... More

Compared to the price, its a very good value. Location is a plus, 5 mins walk to La Jolla cove. On site parking is available for 12$ fee. Breakfast is not as bad as others commented, but during weekends, seating maybe a challenge. Hotel is newly and nicely decorated however carpets looked a bit old and dirty.

This hotel is wonderfully located in the heart of La Jolla village where you can walk anywhere (which might be a good idea since they charge $12 a day for parking). The staff is very helpful and the new lobby gorgeous. However, we were upgraded to the "penthouse" which we appreciated but the overall attention to cleanliness lacked! Our carpet... More

Best Western Inn by the Sea is truly a gift of surprise. When we decided to spend three days in La Jolla -- our second visit in 15 years or so, we checked out TripAdvisor for references. This Best Western among a couple of others stood out. Given the location and the rate, we were somewhat skeptical of the good... More

We stayed with Best Western Plus Inn by the Sea while on vacation and were not disappointed with our choice. The staff members are very friendly and professional. The housekeeping crew is fantastic, our room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Overall a very clean and comfortable hotel. We stayed in a fifth floor king suite with... More

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
