There are not a lot of choices within a long walking distance of the USCD campus. This is one of them. It is set back from a noisy, heavy traffic corner walkable to the beach through a good little commercial district. La Jolla Shores, the other choice, has a very much better location, but is perhaps not quite so nice as Hotel La Jolla. They try to compensate - my room was not quite ready, so I got a free drink in the very pleasant bar. They have a free shuttle - good. They said they would call a cab if I called them - but it didn't work that way. My room very new, clean and pleasant with a good view.
