Overall it was a decent hotel. A/C did not work well, little airflow despite complaining to the front desk about it. I can only assume they tried to fix it as there was not a note left that maintenance was in our room. Barking dogs outside our room each morning limited the amount of sleep we got, so be aware...

We stayed there for six nights. Hotel has a very convenience shuttle service to downtown and other places within 5 mile radius Monday through Friday. Breakfast is well spread. But since we are vegetarian there are less choices. Otherwise it was good. On some weekdays they serve complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks/ coffee etc with snacks and salads.

Staff was very helpful and responsive to all requests. Breadkfasts were crowded, but varied and always good. WiFi was limited, but always available. Small pool for the number of rooms, but adequate. Location is wonderful--short drive to downtown and the beaches and just a few minutes to La Jolla Cove.

Such a bummer! Hubby and I traveled to La Jolla for a long weekend with our 2 year old son. We loved the setup of our "penthouse suite" for our family so that our son could have his own space to sleep and we wouldn't bother him if we stayed up late watching TV. However, the hotel (and our room)... More

Pros are lots of space and about a 10-15 minute drive to beach. Also a short drive or maybe even a 15 minute walk to a shopping area to get groceries. Cons for me is I didn't like that I had to pay to park at a place that owns its own parking. Breakfast in the morning was very large... More

We recently traveled to La Jolla for our son's flag football tourney that was held at UCSD. We have 4 kids and usually have a hard time finding a hotel to accommodate is without having to get 2 rooms. The family suite at this hotel was perfect! It was essentially a 2 bedroom apartment with a full kitchen! All of... More

I visited San Diego around the new year time in December for a family vacation. We chose the hotel because we were looking for a 'home-away-from-home' kind of place.

When I arrived at the check-in desk on June 12, my assigned room was in the right area of the complex and on the second floor, as requested.
