“Funky hotel with good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The king bed ended up being 2 twins pushed together. The balcony was 2 feet wide and inches from the neighboring balconies. The hotel was old and funky with staircases this way and that. Kind of felt a little European in that regard. The best feature about this hotel is its convienent location in downtown La Jolla and the rooftop with great view that no one seems to use.

It is a pretty hotel a block's walk away from the ocean. The room was comfortable. The balcony is very nice to sit and view the ocean. We had a sea gull visit us there once or twice a day. We were there in Dec so it was a little chilly so were were not out there as much as we wanted to. There were 3 of use so we did have a roll a way bed. That matteress does need to be replace but the regular bed was very nice. There was lots of space to put away our clothing.

We spent four days in La Jolla before attending a business conference in San Diego. After spending time at the quaint but clean and comfortable La Jolla Inn, we were rather disappointed with our luxury suite at the Mission Bay Hyatt in San Diego! Comfortable bed, beautiful view of the Cove and Scripps Park, and a rooftop deck perfect for enjoying the complimentary breakfast. Surrounded by plentiful shopping and fantastic dining options. If we ever have the opportunity to go back, we'll definitely stay here again!

I have stayed at this hotel half a dozen times in the last year. It's small and old fashioned, but the location is fantastic and the price is fair. Most of La Jolla is severely overpriced, but the La Jolla Inn is in the center of town with a short walk to the cove. Most of the rooms have a balcony with a view of the water and the beautiful sunset. If you are looking for a place in La Jolla that doesn't break the bank this is the place. Just don't expect the modern stylings of a Hilton or Marriott. I definitely recommend.

This small b&b is centrally located and perfect for a budget conscious weekend in LaJolla. On a busy day it's a bit tricky to navigate to. There's a 10minute loading and unloading area and you get a parking card and the parking is two blocks away.

We were in room 22, which has an ocean view. There's also a small balcony. Short walk down to the coastal walk for an amble along and checking out the sea lions.

Wifi available, and free brewed coffee cookies and lemonade. Nice touch.

Stayed here one night en route from San Diego to Temecula. Check in was efficient and friendly. Room was clean, bed comfortable and also had kitchen/diner. Although our room was at front it wasn't noisy. Breakfast was served on the upstairs roof terrace overlooking the sea. The staff were friendly and helpful. Parking is street parking and although we were lucky I would imagine in high season you may have to park further away.

Due to hurricane Sandy I had to cancel my reservation for the week of 29 Nov 2012. Hotels.com called the hotel and even though the entire east coast was shut down by the airlines, they still charged me $179 cancellation fee. I will never book at the La Jolla Inn again.
