“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Very clean. Appreciate non-smoking policy throughout the hotel. Staff very courteous and professional. Within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and ocean coast. Computer provided in lobby for printing out boarding pass - very convenient. Lobby nicely decorated and comfortable with wall-mounted large screen TV. Fresh fruit always available. Would stay here again.

Ask for a room with a view as it's pretty good for not being ride on the water. The third floor is a good place to stay. Rooms are pretty spacious and the outdoor decks (above) first floor are definitely an excellent feature all year round. The restaurant just at the end of the block was a lovely place for brunch, and the main shopping area of La Jolla is really steps away from the entrance. Good find.

Room Tip: Third floor or above.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Stayed for four days and the location was wonderful. So close to the ocean and able to take nice walks along the beach. Very near some pretty nice restaurants as well. Grocery store just three blocks away and right across the street from a great juice bar for my green drinks!

The pool area is a little odd...very small area the breakfast room is right there overlooking it so there is a feeling that you may be being watched while you are out at the pool.

Staff was fine and the lobby nice as well.

My only real problem was that our room was right on the back alley and almost every morning for about an hour there was a lot of noise and clanging around from the restaurant delivery trucks and then the garbage collection truck. Not a place where you can sleep in, that's for sure.

But, there was a great discount for a four-day stay that made it possible for us to stay in La Jolla, so overall I consider this a nice place to stay if you want a La Jolla experience.

This hotel is centrally located in La Jolla. The beach, restaurants, shopping - everything is within 5 minutes walking. The rooms are clean and a bit dated, but altogether as good as it gets at this price. Highly recommended.

staff were very nice & helpful; rooms are a bit dated, but clean and comfortable; lots of amenities in the lobby, like iced coffee, apples, and pizza from the place next door; decent included breakfast; parking on the street pretty easy to find. a few blocks from La Jolla Cove so you don't have to fight for parking there. nicely done!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Convenient location with attractions, restaurants, night life around, few blocks away from waterfront ocean shoreline – good spot to watch sunset over water horizon. The Best Western is a practical, affordable option in the heart of it all. The rooms are decent sizes but the décor is warn and dated. The beds were comfortable. Nice balcony. Pool is small. Considering the costs of other hotels, this is a good option. The breakfast was average, but there is a great place right near the hotel. Parking is $12 for nigh, but we used in our two day stay street spots, hotel front spaces were not available. You have to move car by 10AM. Would stay here again probably if I have to be in area.
