First let me say I purchased a voucher for a two night stay through The Goods for $363. Here is what the offer said: "Get 67% off a 2 night stay in the luxury Junior Suite at the La Jolla Inn. Just steps from the ocean & downtown La Jolla. Receive flowers, chocolates & Champagne upon arrival. No black out dates!" So I bit and purchased a two night voucher. I looked over the hotel web site and was looking forward to being steps from the lovely La Jolla Cove and the opportunity to sit on my deck, drink wine and look at the ocean. First, YES were steps from the Cove, BUT we had no Ocean view, no deck, no fresh flowers, no chocolates and no champagne......there was a stale musty odor in the room and the bed was a very uncomfortable double. Now the positive side, there were two bathrooms and a kitchen area. Should I have complained, probably.....We stayed one night sleepless due to the discomfort and size of the bed as well as the musty smell. Again the positive side, we did spend a lovely day in La Jolla walking around the Cove and going to the Museum, so all was not lost. However we checked out rather than stay the second night and when we checked out we were asked "WHY we were leaving early?" I pointed to the pictures being shown in the lobby of the rooms, the same as on the web site and asked "WHERE are these rooms?" The Junior Suite we paid $183 per night, a 67% discount off regular price looked nothing like these....I was told I could wait and talk to the manager, but I told her "no thanks"....BUYER BEWARE!!!! Perhaps the upper ocean view rooms are nice, but DON'T be suckered into the street level rooms!!! This room was worth maybe $75 a night. TWO losers here, The Goods---I WON'T purchase from them again, and the Hotel, we are local and enjoy "staycations" and we won't return to this hotel and we will pass the word about this "Boutique" hotel. ASK questions if you book here and be sure you are getting what you think you are getting. I have walked out of better hotels than this one.....
