This hotel is perfect for parking your car and just strolling the La Jolla Village and beach. There are so many places to eat, shop, and relax listening and watching the waves. The hotel has a wonderful atmosphere and the rooms are so nice and comfortable. The soaps and shampoos are top quality as are the towels! The staff are... More

Reasonably priced hotel, nicely located and a good value. Free WiFi, and breakfast, coffee and snacks in the afternoon. Parking at the hotel $12, but very convenient. Also like that regular check-in is 2:00 and we were able to check-in at 12:30. Balcony a nice feature for a modestly priced hotel.

We stayed here for one night during a road trip. The room is great, we got a room on the 5th (top) floor and we had a great mountain view. Then, when we looked a little more to the left we also had a nice ocean view. The room itself was spacious and clean, beds and pillows were great, slept... More

Stayed four nights while on business in a partial ocean view king. Very clean room with a large balcony. I really appreciated the microwave and fridge. Great shops and restaurants within walking distance, not to mention La Jolla Cove which is amazing. My room faced the alley which was annoying because of the early morning trash trucks. Also the breakfast... More

Typical Best Western room, which is pretty comfortable, and includes breakfast. They charge 12$ for parking, which is the highest in the block. There's a parking garage right next door that only charges 5$, so you have choices...About 1 block from the ocean!

Nice location for early morning walk along the shoreline and the waves were breaking at 10 to 15 feet. Good to hit the breakfast room for takeaway snacks for the drive home. Richard Walkers around the corner for full breakfast is a tradition and need to try at least once. Easy to see the city from this hotel. Starting to... More

Good location and the beds were nice, but it was easy to see this is an older hotel. Our room had wallpaper peeling from the doorjambs next to the bathroom and the tub/shower had one of those permanent non-slip mats that gives safe harbor to germs. Some TLC will go a long way here.

I have stayed here many times. Usually the experience is great. But on this occasion I had reserved this room some time ago and checked in early. However, I was given a room on the ground floor across from where the house keepers worked. I asked for an upper floor, but there was nothing. Usually I am on an upper... More

I agree with all of the positive things said recently on this site. We didn't have any knowledge of the hotels in the area, but chose this place based on reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were very happy with the choice. I think we were lucky to get the room with one of, if not the best view... More

I won;t repeat all that been said in other reviews - just to say that we booked this since we were having dinner at the Marine Room that evening - and were extremely happy to have chosen this hotel. The room provided was what we had requested - top floor north end - which had nice partial views. The gentleman... More
