Overall I was not very impressed with this hotel. Pros: Great location- walkable to coves Cons: Old with musty smell Stains on carpet and linens Stayed in room 2 which was literally 2 steps off the sidewalk which made me feel slightly uncomfortable as a female. Would recommend requesting at least room 4 or higher to be a little bit... More

My rating system gives one out of five points for each category that follows for service: Cleanliness of facilities. Price relative to surrounding area. Helpfulness and friendliness of staff. Location relative to area (if it is easy to access near points of interest.) Quality of primary service. Some of the linens were stained, clean but stained and so it does... More

Well this place is in a great location. Even though the sky deck has great views the condition and uncleanliness make this not so pleasant. The room looked like no one had vacuumed for weeks including a beer bottle top in the corner of the room. My towel even had a hole in it. Not so pleasant. The staff at... More

Ok price and location is great for La jolla (a very pricey destination ). ..but, seriously the a/c unit is caked with dust and dirt and window sills are filthy....a little more effort on cleaning would have been nice.

This small European style inn is in the heart of La Jolla and all it has to offer. We were located on the second floor overlooking Prospect and Girard Streets with a partial view of the ocean (see photos). Parking anywhere in La Jolla is a concern, however the Inn provides parking at $10.00 per day (with in and out... More

We reserved a room with an ocean view. The view we got was over rooftops of other buildings.There was no microwave and the tiny fridge was on the floor in the cloths closet. The room was very small and the balcony extremely small had two dirty chairs. The rugs were old and spotted and so was the bed quilt. No... More

We got a room at the La Jolla Inn for our niece and nephew attending the Marine Ball. They are a young couple with 4 children. Needless to say, their nights out are far and few between. The owner was so amazingly kind as we explained our situation. She allowed the children to see the room where their parents were... More

We just finished a 10 day stay which we greatly enjoyed. The staff and housekeeping were extremely pleasant and helpful. The shower was nicely tiled and cozy warm water. We also like being right next to La Jolla Cove and all the shops of La Jolla. We watched some wonderful sunsets from our balcony and would recommend the Inn to... More
