“La Jolla Cove Suites”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

View from oceanfont room was great but booked king room and got double. Bathroom was tiny and in need of updating. Same with kitchenette. Staff was nice. Interestingly hallway not lit during the day so was hard to get keycard into slot but light was on all night and shown through the window in the bedroom. Overall experience was good but won't stay again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We were a bit hesitant since this property has a lot of one star reviews, but by the time we booked it was just about the only thing left. I was pleasantly surprised when we entered the room. We had a one bedroom suite, two queen ocean view room. The room wasn't fancy, but it was clean, and it seemed VERY large. There was a lot of space for our family of five, with a ton of storage. It felt more like an apartment than a hotel suite. I believe our room was one of the more recently renovated rooms.

The views from the balcony were great. It was fun to watch all of the action in Scripps park, and hear the ocean crashing and the sea lions barking.

Breakfast on the roof was a fantastic experience. The food was good, not amazing. Waffles, cereal, oatmeal, milk, juice, bagels, pastries, etc. But eating out on the roof looking across all of La Jolla was an outstanding experience.

As long as you don't expect a very fancy place, you'll enjoy your stay here. It has a great peaceful, retro atmosphere and we had a great time.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a recently renovated room. And the oceanfront balconies are probably worth the pri...

I stayed here for one night (July 27th) while in town for the film festival. The price was comparable to other hotels of this quality. It is a comfortable hotel in a great location. You can hear the seals (sea lions?) from the hotel and watch all people...you can even hear the live summer concerts from the balcony. I shared a room with two others. We got a suite with an ocean view. The balcony was great and the suite was spacious. Although I don't have kids, this seems like it would be a great place to bring kids or teenagers. The suite is spacious, there is more closet room than I have in my own home, nice sized kitchen with a full size refrigerator and oven range. It would be great for people who are vacationing for a few days. Only complaint I have is that the carpets smelled a little musty (inevitable being so close to the ocean). They allowed us to keep the car parked until 3pm the day we checked out, which was nice because we were able to have a leisurely lunch and walk around town before heading back. Parking costs $20, but that's a fair price for La Jolla in the summer. This place is what it purports to be. Casual, comfortable, no fuss, beach vacation - with the sounds of nature right outside!

Room Tip: Get a balcony facing the ocean!

My wife and I booked a last minute stay here after having to cancel our planned getaway to Playa Del Carmen Mexico due to some unforeseen passport issues. We went into the trip somewhat disappointed but fell in love with this place by the time we left. The hotel was clean, the staff was awesome, and you cannot beat the location. We plan on coming back every year! Big Thumbs up!!!!

We booked the hotel's last available room online arriving last weekend without ever staying there (something I never do as a seasoned meeting planner), however we were pleasantly surprised.
The hotel staff was friendly and the assistant general manager upgraded us to an ocean front king (in the unrenovated portion of the building) for our 3rd anniversary at no extra cost. A very kind gesture.
While the hotel structure and our guest room is a bit dated, as older hotels are, our oceanfront room was extremely clean with newer furniture, fresh paint and a smaller kitchenette that was also clean. The bathroom was very small and tub even smaller that needs renovating...but it also was clean. As a result, the renovations needed, didn't factor into our great stay as the room, pool, hot tub, facilities were clean, and the staff was friendly and the daily breakfast inclusive was well done!
We would return to the property and we've stayed at Torrey Pines, La Valencia, L'Auberage etc. Just relax and change your exectations as the cleanliness and staff were better than many I've encountered at 4 diamond resorts.

Room Tip: Select an ocean front room with a balcony overlooking the La Jolla Cove.

Reserved this room through a third party. Was told by front desk this room(oceanfront 2queens suite with pull out couch) did not exist after being put in a suite with no pull-out couch. Originally was told they could send up a roll-a-way for a fee. They then said they would waive the fee. When I got home from the trip(anniversary) I looked on the hotels web site and saw the same room that did not exist. That put a twist on the whole experience. The views were great, housekeeping good and location nice. Just don't care for false information from hotel management. Seems like someone did not want to admit or correct their mistake.
