The location is good. The rooms are dirty with stains on the carpet, sheets, walls and shower curtain. The bathroom smells bad. There are huge dust balls on the airconditioning units in the rooms. The chairs on the balcony are filthy. I wish I had looked at tripadvisor before going here - there are several complaints about the dirty rooms.... More

Not as bad as expected after reading the reviews. Overall it is pretty good value for the price and location. It would certainly help if they would just clean the place up with new carpet, fix the mold spots in the bathroom. Vacuuming the closet would be a big start. With a little fixing up it could be a really... More

I feel like this place is decent, and just steps from the cove. The ocean view was nice, and the balconies were a bonus. I must say that house keeping needs to step up their service (the sink wasn't even wiped down, and we had to ask for toilet paper twice because it was never replaced. The front desk staff... More

To this complaining about room size...you've obviously never been to Paris. To those complaining about dollar value? It's friggin' La Jolla for a hundred bucks a night. The place is clean. The location is about as good as it gets. The management make it very clear what you're getting. Perhaps the complainers need to look up EUROPEAN STYLE hotel so... More

This was the first time I had used this hotel, and I was somewhat nervous based on the reviews, but my guests loved it. I had relatives coming in from out of town for Thanksgiving and I booked in advance (few months in advance) and the price was right. This is not a five star hotel (and that is available... More

First, the positive. The staff was pleasant and accommodating with regard to allowing us a late checkout due to a charity event and the location is within walking distance of plenty of shops, restaurants, and the beach. With that said, I would not recommend this place. The rooms are tiny and the space is not well used as there is... More

This place was great for the view, steps to the ocean and cove and all the down town shops and restaurants in La Jolla. For all the complaints about the rooms, go next door and pay two or three times the rate if you expected five stars. This is an older European style Inn. You get the basics in an... More

Quaint room, small balcony with ocean view, felt somewhat European, decent bed and bedding, bathroom was small, shower (tub) hardly drained (Room 19). There's a corner market right next door, internet available. Very helpful at front desk. Difficult parking.

I wish I could give this place a ZERO! They pretty much ruined my honeymoon. We checked in and from the beginning i was a little disappointed but nothing that was going to ruin my mood or my honeymoon so I thought.

Hello, I am truly sorry to hear that your stay with us was not what you expected. It sounds as if this incident that occurred happened truly by accident. But nevertheless, it is still unacceptable by all means. Since reading your review, I have looked up your reservation and spoken with the employee that had checked the other guest in.... More

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
