We stayed in room 3 downstairs. It wasn't as bad as all that I've read in these reviews. My boyfriend booked it and had I read these reviews prior to our trip I am sure I would have persuaded him to book our stay elsewhere. There are a few minor things I wish housekeeping would have taken care of before we occupied our room though. For the price it's really not so bad.
The good: clean room, sheets and shower tile and floors. Nice welcome basket of goodies (although pricey), in room fridge. Cute bathroom although small!
The bad: the bathroom ceiling vent was hanging open by a thread. No vent fan to use. Didn't like the higher level tile floor stepping into the bathroom. The coffee pot had slimy water reservoir from previous guest who carelessly put coffee grounds in it and housekeeping overlooked this detail. I made sure to tell the front desk so room 3 should be fixed by now. What idiot guest put coffee grounds in the water reservoir?
The need to know: great to be in the middle of things; quick walk to the beach and in the middle of everything. Our goal was to be out enjoying the sites, not to be in our room, so we could overlook the minor flaws. Cody's is across the street and great for breakfast or lunch. Go to LaEstancia for a couples spa day, Mission Coffee Cup, another killer breakfast place. Karl Strauss Brewing Co and Herringbone are fantastic places to eat. WeOlive is a few doors down and you must have wine and cheese from their balcony. There are stairs on the side of the hotel next door and great for running up and down to the beach to get your cardio going.
Speaking of views: the rooftop view at LaJoya Inn is amazing. Grab a novel, a drink and lounge up there. We enjoyed our stay, not 100% perfect but we still we're satisfied for what it was, a small older hotel in the middle of everything.
