“Location, View, Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

We recently spent a long “girls” week-end at the La Jolla Cove Suites. What a fantastic view!! Unfortunately, we were there during “June Gloom” so the balcony could get chilly at night and we were not lucky enough to see any sunsets. We had the 2 bedroom suite with a balcony overlooking the La Jolla Cove. This included a main room with a sleeper sofa and small kitchenette (included a refrigerator, range and cooking utensils). The rooms were OK for what we needed. They could use an update, but we were not in the room that much. The view and the location more than made up for the tired style.

The Wi-Fi was not available in the suite, but usually available in the business center on the fourth floor. Access on my ipad was hit or miss on the rooftop or pool.

An added bonus was the continental breakfast on the roof. There was a coffee machine with all different types of fu-fu coffee to get your day started. Overall it was a great value for the location & view – and nobody calling the front desk if we giggled or talked too loud!!

After seeing a recent episode of Hotels Impossible, I decided to change our reservations for a couple of pre-cruise nights to the La Jolla Cove Suites. We had a terrace suite, which had not been totally re-done yet, but was quite comfortable, very clean, and well equipped for our short stay, albet dated. A large balcony with doors from the living room and from the bedroom provided us with stunning views of the cove and rolling ocean waves. The hike up the stairs to get to these terrace suites is taxing, but once up there so convenient to then walk right into the village for shopping and dining. BTW--they do have bellmen for your luggage. Friendly staff and a beautiful location. Will certainly go back there next time in the area.

Room Tip: The terrace suites have panoramic views, huge balconies, and make getting into the village very easy...

OK, If you are staying at the beach and it’s under the cost of your weekly paycheck a night, you’re not staying at a 5 star resort, however the La Jolla Cove Suites just might foot the bill for the low cost get away. Planted within feet of La Jolla Beach and La Jolla Cove, this beach front hotel (as beach front as they get in that area) has a rather large room, most likely in the 400-500 sq ft size and over looks La Jolla Beach. Walking distance to everything including the Prospect Street, this a great hotel for a reasonable price. Beware, it is NOT luxury in any sense but more of a 50’s – 60’s California hotel. My room came with a Kitchenette, Small Refrigerator, One private Bedroom (fold out in the Living room) and one great view. The Bathroom is small, hovering in the 100 sq ft arena. Add to that a nice sized swimming pool and a Jacuzzi you have a great weekend getaway. This may not be best for the kids as there is no beach access near this Hotel, but then again, it has Caves to explore! There is a small and safe swim beach near by, no waves but you might have to fight off the sea lions for it (or share it). Either way it's a great experience! One more thing, this room is NOT for the TV lover. TV's are flat LCD but small (I never watched it myself). WiFi is Available on the roof and in the Business Center. Most likely NOT in the room!

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be a Beach view with a few exceptions. Get the view at all costs!

This hotel is by far the best value in La Jolla. Stayed with friends in a one bedroom suite with a connecting regular room. Even with two rooms the price was half of what you would pay at the other hotels in the area and the views are spectacular. They have parking which is impossible to find around the beach and are in walking distance of everything in the town. I read that they have upgraded the decor which is the only thing it needed. I used to live in La Jolla and have seen all the hotels so I can honestly say, you can't beat this one. We stayed in room 201 which is a corner room that faces both the park and the cove. You can sit on the balcony and people watch or catch a beautiful sunset.
Staff is friendly and very helpful with directions and dining choices which are plentiful in town. Almost all the restaurants in town are good but my recommendations are Georges at the Cove for either drinks on their rooftop or if you want to spluge dinner downstairs, Cody's for an afternoon snack and La Valenica Hotel has the best Sunday brunch you can find.

Room Tip: Rooms 201,301, 401 are corner suites with the best views. The higher up the less noise from the str...

The location of this hotel and the view cannot be beat. The staff is very professional and courteous. Once they finish all the rennovations, it should be a premier place to stay in La Jolla. Our room had been rennovated and was very comfortable. The roof top deck was such a lovely place to enjoy our breakfast each morning and would be a beautiful place for a wedding or evening cocktail party.

As many of the other posters mentioned the view is extraordinary. I stayed with my wife and toddler for abut a week. I found the location, self serve laundry, pool, grill, proximity to the beach very convienent. The room decore was dated - spent little time looking at the room and a. Lot of time looking at the view.

The service provided by the staff is better than any of the four or five star resorts at which I have stayed. All service requests were accommodated and were done so with impressive speed.

I have to say the maid service was inconsistent. example: One of the strange issues was I spilt some coffee -tried to get it out of the carpet but there was a stain. None of the maids attempted to clean. I had to advise the front desk to have the maid pay some attention to the issue.

The view is priceless, they are due that much. The older rooms though are in dire need of maintenance. The railings (i.e. room 322) look like they would fail be pushing on it slightly, and the footings of the railing looked like the concrete was spalled, and they used 'bondo' to hold it together and painted over it. The bathrooms were small, fixtures were old, and there's no thermostat. So the rooms are old, but staff was friendly I'm sure they are trying to hold high standards and keep the price over $100.00. The TV (i.e. advert. as a flat screen) was smaller than my computer screen (i.e. about 15" ). And no microwave. So ask if your room looks like the picture in the ad.
Guys, don't let my review deter you unless you're looking for a touch of elegance...this ain't it. But the price special was modest.

Room Tip: The hotel is a non-smoking room, but the neighbors were smoking on the patio and had a hibachi hooke...
