Only one night, but it was New Years, and it included dinner and breakfast. That's only one day a year, but it gave me a good view of the place and the food facilities. The hotel is RIGHT ON the Pacific. In fact, our bed was likely not more than 100 feet from the gentle waves. Very nice. The hotel is a tiny bit worn...but the excellent and generous details, great food and very friendly and helpful people make it an excellent place. The beach on New Years was an incredible sight. Dolphin racing past, surfers, kayakers, long distance swimmers, "frogpeople" (there's an underwater park just offshore), happy walkers streaming up the beach...hang gliders to the North, hot aiir baloons, famous Black's Beach (clothing optional) up the shore, charming downtown La Jolla just down the shore, Scripps Institute...yikes. The New Years Eve dinner in the restaurant was really delicious and special...same for breakfast the next morning. Nice little shopping area with beachgoods and food, about 2 blocks away. We had a great time and that was in about 18 hours total.
