“La Jolla and San Diego”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2009

Inn at La Jolla is a wonderful place to stay. The decor and atmosphere are wonderful, the beds comfortable with lovely crisp sheets, plus views of the Pacific from the aptly named Pacific View Room. Parking makes things very easy if you're driving. The Breakfasts are outstanding and the people delightful. Top tip recommendation - don't stay in an Hotel stay here.

My Dad and I were in La Jolla to find an apartment and instead of staying at the big impersonal hotels, we opted for the B&B experience. Also, the big hotels tack on hefty fees for parking your car overnight and the value at the B&B seemed higher as well. Choosing this B&B ended up making a potentially stressful trip into an absolute pleasure. The manager, Jenna, was lovely. From the first moment we stepped in, any difficulty or inconvenience that is typically placed on the visitor's shoulders or wallet, was made into an easy, convenient solution. We were made to feel right at home, and Jenna immediately offered help and interest in our housing search, spending lots of time explaining the neighborhoods, drawing details on a map, offering all this information without our even asking. I felt like I was in a good friend's home. There was tea and biscuits always ready, with a cute sherry and chocolates/treats at 5pm every day. The breakfasts were delicious, high quality, and inventive. The other guests also seemed to be having a wonderful time as well, and we enjoyed chatting with them at breakfast. Our room was off of the gated courtyard, that was the most lovely secret garden. Bouganvillia (sp?), lovely flowering plants, sculptures, a fountain set the mood. And we were located right down the way from downtown La Jolla, but in a quiet, less busy part of town. We walked down to the beach at the end of the day, and Jenna gave us beach chairs, towels for our comfort. The beach is unbelievably close and we happened upon a cove where harbor seals have their babies. Just amazing. The room was adorable, as were the other rooms Jenna showed us. The mattresses were comfortable, the temperature just right, and when we got a bit chilly, we turned on the fireplace at night. There were many lovely touches in the room, an interesting architecture (not just a rectangular room), which added to the charm. At the end of our stay, we had a late night flight, and they held our baggage and made us still feel at home, even though we technically had checked out of the B&B. The usual bits that make traveling stressful, irritating rules, fees, parking, etc...were non-existent. I hope the B&B is paying Jenna enough, as the place would not be the same without her. She's responsible, kind, appropriate, funny, a fantastic cook, and warm personality. I'm sure it's not an easy job, and she makes it look easy.

Every room has its own characterful old-fashioned furniture and style. Mine had a four-poster bed and a writing bureau. Not enough drawer space, though. Service had nice touches like communal breakfast with everyone brought into the dining room conversation who wanted to be, sherry and chocolates in the room. Lovely garden, close to shops, generally a delight.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2009

We stayed in Garden Room w/king bed which was comfortable. Very close to the beaches and walking distance to nice restaurants. First night was quite; second was bad due to an apparent Irish step dancer above. Grounds are ok, but near the wooden patio is a construction hole with cones...very unappealing. Needs a hot tub. If you are going to use their parking spaces, bring your Smart Car as the spaces are VERY narrow. Their "business center" would not allow my laptop to connect to the internet even though they are supposedly wifi.

marvelme_7, Owner at The Bed and Breakfast Inn at La Jolla, responded to this review, August 28, 2011
It seems your stay was during the period we were doing some reconstruction on the deck . We were in dire straits and had to remove two very large and invasive trees which were creating a hazard. Their removal created some damage to the deck and the cones were for the guests protection. As I explained to the other guest we are so sorry for the inconvenience and would have given guests a heads up if we had been able to forsee the problem and plan ahead for it. We were also hoping to put in a hot tub on the deck as you suggested and were awaiting shipment. Unfortunately prior to the hot tub's arrival, we were informed that the city of San Diego had put extra restrictions on the type of hot tub one could intall. The type required did not fit into the space we had available. As a result , we are sorry to inform our guests that it is not likely at this time that there will be a hot tub on the premises.

We inform our guests that there is limited parking , We agree the spaces are definitley tight,. The spaces were established in 1984 for smaller, standard & compact cars and not for trucks or SUVs. If the spaces are full or getting in and out is just too unnerving, there is unlimited parking on the side streets adjacent to the Inn.

At the time of your visit we were indeed having issues with the wireless routers in our complimentary business center; but these have since been solved. We do appoligize for the inconvenience this may have presented to you or other guests.
We have also increased our complimentary amenities to include unlimited amounts of bottled watet, soft drinks and an expanded wine and cheese reception. This is in addition to our unlimited supply of fresh fruit, cookies and our house favorite-Jay's Biscotti. Fine Sherry is still available in all the guest rooms with our compliments as well . We want your visit to be special and we thank you for letting us know how we can improve. Thank you.

Delightful location close to a spectacular ocean beach with rocks and tide pools to explore. Don't miss the hikes in Torrey Pines State Reserve farther north.

The young staff is expert and friendly, very accessible and generous. And the breakfasts are ample and tasty. Homemade cookies and treats were always available, and the sherry at five offered a moment to pause and ponder.

My stay? B&B for 12 nights....
personal staff/rooms/Breakfast/garden and concerns for my personal experience surpassed any other B&B stay I have had to date. I will return soon and often.The cook/breakfast /manager/ is attentive to every detail. Her culinary skills are 5 star. I have found that staying in B&B's instead of Hotels are far superior to accommodate my needs and pace of life in my 60's. This one is truly a gem/ gardens are Beautiful and located near older and currently used architecture treasures." La Jolla locals", are active and sophisticated within reach of this Historical Building that houses the B&B. Have Fun........
