“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were there for our son's beach wedding. We booked over the phone with Kim who was very nice and informative . We were very surprised and pleased when we checked in that they had upgraded our room to a Deluxe 1 bedroom King Suite. "Thank you again"! We had originally booked the Sunset Special which was a mini suite. We were on the 6th floor room 161. Fantastic view, Fantastic rooms, Fantastic stay !!! We have come to San Diego at least once year, for many years now. Never, Never again will we stay in Hotel Circle. La Jolla Cove Suites will be our Hotel from now on!!!
Thanks Rebecca M, AZ.

Our room was nice and neat. You pretty much pay for the location. The view is stunning. We didn't have a room with a view but just walking out and smelling the sea was worth it. There was no AC just a lil fan so there wasn't too much air flow. The walls seemed to have been paper thin....let's just say we didn't sleep in too late. Idk if we would stay here again.

Dear Kaylyn R,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel we appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns. Although we do not have central air conditioning we can provide our guests with a portable air conditioning unit or an additional fan. May I suggest that should you decide to return that you may want to consider reserving one of our ocean front suites as they provide very comfortable ocean breezes and in most cases guests will not require air conditioning. We are pleased to hear that you found our “views and location stunning” and thank you for choosing La Jolla Cove Suites!

Sincerely,

This Pet Friendly hotel has been recently renovated and it is amazing what you can for such an affordable price! The view is unbeatable and the location is perfection. You do not need to drive at all in this mediterranean style paradise. The breakfast included above is great..the staff are so gracious..the sound of the seals..makes this a "one of a kind" experience. Great for romance or with kids or even a girls getaway trip.Everyone I've told about this place LOVES it!
I must have stayed here over 15 times and consider it my home away from home. It simply can't be beat!!

We book this as a last minute get away. I had seen this hotel on on Hotels Impossible. Although, the hotel is dated, it is currently being renovated. New paint, carpet, and bedding made for a comfortable room. It still has popcorn ceilings and the kitchen has older dated appliances but everything was very clean. What made this room amazing is the view from the balcony. Absolutely spectacular! ! ! Unobstructed ocean view! I just sat there watching the waves crash against the shore. We enjoyed dinner on the rooftop terrace which gave us an amazing view of La Jolla and its surrounding beaches. The heated pool and jacuzzi were an added bonus. We were literally steps from the beach. Everything was within walking distance. There is even a back way to starbucks that is only for hotel guest to utilize. Von's was a half mile away and there were plenty of things to see and do within a 5-10 minute walk in either direction. This will definitely be are new little hide-a-way. The staff was also very friendly and efficient.

Room Tip: I would say over 90% of the rooms face the ocean but I would make sure to ask for an "ocean fro...

The views from the hotel are stunning! I could sit out on the balcony all day, beautiful. The room is ok, there is no air flow in the bedroom and even with a fan the room was way too hot. The bedroom had a funny smell when we first got there, I don't think the room had been used recently and smelled musty. The cabinets in the kitchen had clearly just been painted because they were all stuck shut. Stuck or not the kitchen was a great feature and the dining table was a added bonus with kids! The trip was good until the last morning when I got up to shower and walked into the bathroom to find a 3 inch cockroach sitting on my clean towels!!! I quickly packed up and left after that, no thanks!!! I notified the desk when I checked out, about an hour after the first roach encounter and the girl at the desk didn't seem surprised in the least. She didn't say anything other than "ooh ok Ill tell the maid". WHAT eww. Wouldn't stay there again, even with the positive features the sight of the roach was way too much for me!! For the cost I would have expected more :(

First, let me say that we are extremely surprised to hear of a pest control issue in one of our rooms. We do not hear this type of complaint and our housekeeping staff is very diligent in keeping the rooms spotless. We want you to know that we are very concerned about your experience and that we do not take the matter lightly. We would appreciate it if you would contact us so that we can fully look into this matter. I can be reached at (858)459-2621, please ask to the speak to the manager on duty. We hope to hear from you soon.

This is an old hotel but you can't hold that against them. They have made tremendous improvements and have plenty of staff cleaning the area. All rooms face the ocean and right across the street is the La Jolla Cove its perfect. Your balcony have new tables and chairs which were nice. The rooms are a bit dated but clean. I stayed in room 221. The bathrooms are very small at least in my room. The door seems to be in the way. The room had a small kitchenette which I can do without a living area and the bedroom was separate. I am glad they did not have those old bedspreads they used to have in the old days. The breakfast was only fair only thing good about it they had homemade waffles and this was included. There is also complimentary use of the La Jolla Health Club next door I just never used it. After the Travel Channel's show on this place they made great improvements including the tile in the front entry of the hotel which was falling apart is now fixed.

Room Tip: Stay in the refurbished rooms

This is the best place to stay in LaJolla. It's right on the coast at the Cove and is terrific for snorkling, kayaking, swimming and dining out (both casual and fine). The whole 5th floor is a wonderful place overlooking the ocean. They serve a great continental breakfast up there every morning. Many weekend evening there are weddings on the 5th floor -- it's panorama view is pricelessl!

Room Tip: If there are several people traveling, choose an annex corner room. The view is terrific and there...
