We booked via Travelocity and got the $199 breakfast/bed combo. The hotel does resemble a scaled down version of La Quinta in Palm Springs but is not nearly as luxurious.
The location is non descript. It's set off a major road in La Jolla. You have to drive to get any really nice views of the ocean or the town.
The deluxe room we booked was next to the outside access door that slammed shut loud enough to hear in the room. The room looked out onto a nondescript courtyard and out balcony was a whopping 6 inches wide. Yes, 6 inches. It made us laugh.
The room was clean and the bedding was nice. The TV in the room was a bit dated for my liking and the sound was really bad. The shower in the room had no water pressure.
The staff was nice enough but nothing out of the ordinary in terms of service.
We had a couples massage at the Spa. The masseuse I had, Ed was wonderful. The Spa itself was lacking in atmosphere. The towels were thin and old, the water pressure was low in the showers and the soaps and amenities were low end.
The breakfast buffet was mediocre as well. Scrambled eggs, an egg casserole, bacon, sausage and hotcakes along with a continental buffet. Sunday's buffet was a little better with the addition of an omelet station.
Overall, this hotel was average. Nothing spectacular.
