We enjoyed our stay here very much. It is by no means a very high end hotel but the comfort level, cleanliness and general state of the hotel is very nice. Currently the hotel is going through major renovations to its parking area but they are offering free valet parking or you can park on the road anywhere around the... More

I visited about a month ago. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room was small but decorated nicely. My room was quiet, it was on the courtyard. I enjoyed breakfast in the courtyard each day. The parking lot was under construction, valet was easy to use.

Stayed here for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our room was clean, breakfast was great every morning, and the pool area was very nice. We also enjoyed the bottled water that was available to guests in the courtyard! Walking distance to Wind and Sea Beach and only a short drive to downtown La Jolla.

We stayed in this hotel during one week. At the beginning our room was too noisy (near the road) but we changed for a room much more quite. All the Staff is very helpful and friendly. Pool is very nice and complimentary breakfast is delicious. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

This motel is awesome! We have been staying here for over 35 years. Every time we return is like "coming home"...this place is very family oriented, clean, and quiet. The staff is super warm and receptive. Laine and David in the front office are very welcoming and friendly... We shall return in August!
