My landlady decided to paint the walls in the kitchen of my studio after it suffered a cold water pipe leak in the ceiling. I live and work within 5 miles of the Inn by the Sea so I booked a room there last week for one night, a friend met me in the lobby then we walked a couple of blocks to Duke's to catch-up while enjoying a sunset over seafood/salad. Returned to a very quiet room with a very comfortable king bed for a deep sleep. The next day, arrived to the office within my normal timeframe feeling refreshed. Will keep the Inn by the Sea in mind when I need another short respite!

This is the most wonderful hotel in La Jolla for me. Reasonably priced for La Jolla. Lovely, clean rooms. The nicest, most professional and friendly staff. Great equi-distance to the Village and the shore. Always a wonderful stay.

The wifi was frustrating to use. Could not stay logged in. Or was very slow. Otherwise I like this hotel a lot. There is a pool, coffee is good, you can see the ocean from the balconies at least on one side the building.

This is a very well done, easy-going, no frills spot just off the main shopping street in La Jolla. Walkable to everything and the staff was so helpful and accomodating. Highly recommended and well priced for the area.

Not a five star hotel but well worth the rates. We have stayed there twice before and will be going back again. It is within walking distance of most restaurants and entertainment venues. The service is great, the rooms neat and clean. On site parking is $15 a day but a lot less of a hassle than lot or street parking. The views are not great and the heated pool is small but for the price it is awesome!
