“Best place to stay near beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2010

GREAT value. La Jolla is a very expensive (and beautiful) area and this is a wonderful place to stay near one of the prettiest beaches in SoCal. The hotel is not new, not ON the beach, and it is not fancy. But it is clean, reasonably priced, and has everything that you need for a great stay: Fridge, microwave, in-room safe, laundry, hassle free wifi, parking, hot tub, pool, and a very helpful staff (especially Danny at the front desk). It is much nicer than the more expensive hotels in this class down the road in PB. I stay here every time I come back to La Jolla and don't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

In Summary: Great price, great location, good service, clean, BUT SMELLY.

The Good:
We accidentally booked our hotel online for the wrong day. Fortunately, the hotel had one room left which was just being cleaned when we arrived. The original price was more than double what we would have paid online so after frowning a bit, they lowered it to the online price.

The Bad:
The room smelled like BO. It was clean, so maybe it was just the guy who cleaned the room right before we got in.

We were able to walk in and book a great rate after leaving a loud hotel in Pacific Beach. The hotel is clean and peaceful. We had a second floor room that even had a peek of the ocean. The room was large and included a partial kitchen. We wish that we had booked this hotel from the beginning and have already talked about staying here for our next trip.

If you're looking for a simple place to stay, this is your hotel. I had to be in La Jolla for a conference, otherwise I would not probably recommend staying in La Jolla. I think it's sort of past it's prime.

The hotel was nice enough. Nothing special except free wifi and a close walk to the beach. There are no facilites if you need anything business-wise done here, so take that into consideration.

We spent there 4 nights. There room was smelly and dirty: we had a dirty fork and napkin next to our bed when we arrived and noticed that the cleaning lady would only do the bed and would not clean anything else in the room. Also she would knock on our door every moring at 9am (waking us up) to check if she could do the room. Breakfast consists is average and unfortunately you have to take it standing up, in the middle of the reception area as there are no chairs or tables. Finally, when we checked out, around 10% was added to our bill for taxes - we ha booked through a major online provider. when we asked for explanation the staff (a rude girl called Olga) laught at us and said that probably we had never travelled before as there are extra taxed everywhere in the USA (we were coming from 2 wks in california and this was the first place where this happened. On the positive side, they have a small but nice hot spa an free parking.

I loved the location. It was as close to "on the beach" as you can get in La Jolla without living there. Awesome Windansea Beach was a mere 5 minute stroll away. My partner and I had the cheapest and thus smallest room and it was big enough considering we spent very little time there! La Jolla is an incredible town. We are already making plans to return and we will be staying at the Travelodge La Jolla!

Location is key for this place! You're only a block from the ocean and the beach!

-The staff was nice but the room wasn't that great, in need of updating! We had a 2 double bed room and did like that it was very spacious having 2 closet areas and a small kitchen area (sink, microwave, fridge) and a separate vanity area with mirror, hairdryer apart from the bathroom. We had a room in the back, ground floor.

-Walls are thin so you hear everything outside and above you.
-Though there were parking spots, they were too small to park in without having someone get out and guide you. We saw (and heard) many do that. We opted for street parking or their alley spots.
-The rooms could definitely be updated. The bathroom apparently had a leak at one time and they plastered over it and had a piece of duct tape over it.
-The shower was not clean and had moldy spots. The sink faucet was sideways making for an awkward position to use.

The area is nice to explore if you have a car. We had breakfast at the Cottage and that was great, we sat outside. Within a short driving distance we visited the Cove. I would probably try the Holiday Inn across the street next time and hope for a more updated room and cheaper.
