“Very good price walking distance from ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Had a conference on UCSD campus and was looking for an affordable option at a relatively close distance. Hotel, car and gas for 4 days ended up being far cheaper than any hotel closer to campus. Hotel is very clean and quiet. Service was excellent and cordial. I will definitively go back.

Thank you for sharing your good experience at La Jolla Beach Travelodge. We believe that La Jolla Travelodge is the perfect choice for those who come to UCSD, local schools and hospitals. There are a lot of large luxury hotels in University Town Center area, however, if you are on a budget and prefer to be near the beach, La Jolla Travelodge would be a smarter choice.

We are also on the major public bus line. Bus #30 runs every 15 minutes on the week days. It runs through UCSD campus, stops at the VA hospital and goes all the way to University Town Center. If you would like to reach San Diego, bus #30 goes through Old Town all the way to San Diego downtown area.

Another reason to stay here is the beach. We are 300 yards from WindanSea Beach. It takes about 10-15 minutes to drive to the beach from any hotel at University Town Center and it takes less than 5 minutes to WALK to the WindanSea Beach from your room at La Jolla Beach Travelodge.

The Travelodge La Jolla met my needs perfectly. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the price was right, and the location was very convenient for my purposes. A great coffee shop just steps away from the hotel along with some good restaurants in the immediate vicinity made my stay all the more enjoyable. And it didn't hurt to have a gorgeous beach within walking distance!

We come back every winter a few weeks to La Jolla Beach Travelodge, a great hotel on a perfect location with a friendly staff. A good breakfast is served. The rooms are clean and well equipped, the pool is warm and pleasant and the Windansea beach is just a few steps down the hill. The sunsets are terrific there. There are so many lovely restaurants in La Jolla, some of them on walking distance from the hotel. You can enjoy lovely meals at happy hour for a reasonable prize. Marine Room serves delicious food and is located on the beach ( La Jolla Shores.) NineTen at the Colonial hotel in the village has great food as well as Cusp on top of hotel La Jolla.

When did you last see the sunset at Windansea beach in La Jolla? If it wasn’t yesterday it was probably too long ago. Nature puts on an amazing show with the dramatic clouds in the sky and the glorious sun sinking gracefully into the Pacific. This is a memory that stays in your heart. One of our guests once told us that since she saw the coastline of La Jolla Shores a few years ago she has been dreaming about it and seeing herself as a bird flying over the ocean until she came back to visit La Jolla again.

I stayed at the Travelodge for 24 days during my visit to San Diego and overall I liked the place.

MInd, it is an old hotel, and not a fancy place as it says in a lot of the other reviews, but the place is clean, the bed was really good (a huge plus) and the staff was generally helpful. You have a fridge and microwave in your room and access to a laundry machine and dryer. I personally did not use pool and jacuzzi, but they are there if you want to.

I would thouroghly recommand it for anyone who wants to have a reasonably priced hotel, but does not need any fancy stuff (i.e. people who do not expect to be entertained by the hotel itself). The beach is easy to reach, as well as La Jolla village, and if you don't have a car, well there is always a bus route 30 stop in front, which goes downtown San Diego and to UCSD.

As already mentioned, the staff is really helpful and there is even a small breakfast included in the room charge. If you need something more filling or more difference just try out Vahiks Cafe next door, which is just terrific. In the evenings I'd recommand "The Promiscous Fork" down the road for a quite delicious bite and maybe some socializing with locals.

Overall I was really satisfied with the experience.

Room Tip: Rooms to the backside are probably more quiet. Frontside is next to the road, where traffic starts a...

Thank you for this great detailed description of La Jolla Beach Travelodge. We are certain it will help other travelers looking for a place to stay in La Jolla. We would also like to add that we have a large parking lot and we do not charge for parking. There is also plenty of safe street parking around the motel that our guests sometimes use for their UHauls and RVs.
There is Free High-Speed WI-FI in all the rooms, cable TV, in-room coffee and a free newspaper in the morning. La Jolla Beach Travelodge has all the conveniences you expect while on vacation or traveling for business.

A terrific welcome just a block from Windansea beach. Have been coming back here for the last 12 years and we feel part of the family. Every stay is better than the one before and the staff do everything to keep you happy. We travel with two boys who love spending time in the pool area which is great for relaxing after the beach and meeting other guests (big and small!). The breakfast has a good choice and is plenty to set you up for the day.
It's the best base for visiting the San Diego area whether you like jogging by the ocean, surfing or disappearing for the day to discover places.
The Mexican restaurant over the road is excellent. You MUST taste the tableside guacamole. In the hotel lobby there are discount coupons to make your stay even more pleasant.
We would highly recommend the hotel as a couple or with a family.

Room Tip: The penthouse suite has a view of the ocean and a patio outside!

Thank you for your wonderful comments. WELCOME is what we do. We are sincerely happy to see people coming here for the first time, staying with us and returning to La Jolla Beach Travelodge. We hope that it shows in every interaction we have with our guests and in every experience that our guests have.

We really liked that you called La Jolla Beach Travelodge ‘the best base for visiting the San Diego area’. You cannot phrase it better than that, because La Jolla is the most beautiful, the quietest and the safest place to stay in San Diego. When you have your accommodations in La Jolla you can make easy day trips to visit other interesting parts of San Diego and then come back to the peaceful and relaxing La Jolla area.

The beach is only 1 block away. The room was clean and as others have said, the bed was comfortable. If we ever come back to the area we would stay here again. Great value for the price. The pool and jacuzzi looked really nice, but it was cool and raining when we were there. There was a great Mexican restaurant across the street, which the motel gave us a coupon for.

We really appreciate your great review. It’s wonderful that you enjoyed yourselves even though the weather was cool and rainy. There are a lot of things to do in La Jolla and San Diego on a rainy day. You can visit the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art on Prospect Street in La Jolla Village. It always offers a fresh collection of modern art masterpieces. You can also go up to La Jolla Shores and spend a day in Birch Aquarium. The aquarium belongs to Scripps Institute of Oceanography and showcases the latest research in marine biology. It also has an amazing collection of marine animals and a great gift shop. At the front desk we have dozens of brochures and we are always happy to give directions and provide more information about these places and many more La Jolla and San Diego attractions that are easy to drive to or reach by public transportation.
