“Beautiful view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

My daughter, granddaughter & I recently spent a few days at LaJolla Cove and thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay! We were very pleased with our deluxe oceanview 5th floor suite where we were able to view the sea lions on the rocks from our balcony. Transportation to SeaWorld and to the San Diego Airport was very accessible. We enjoyed our complimentary rooftop breakfast with its spectacular view of the ocean and Scripp's Park. The children's pool was a short walk from the hotel and gave us a wonderful opportunity to observe and photograph the numerous seals beached along the shoreline. I took advantage of the complimentary spa membership and attended a wonderful yoga class at a nearby fitness facility. We also enjoyed the outdoor pool and hot tub under the night sky...the hotel provides large, thick beach towels for your convenience. My only complaint was that the time passed much too quickly and was sad when it came time to leave. The staff was very accomodating and provided us with excellent service during our memorable stay. I would return in a heartbeat!

We were married here in 10/2010. We come back every year on our anniversary. You can't beat the location or the size of the rooms here. Now that our family has grown +2, its a must to have a separate bedroom area to put them down at their bedtime while we stay awake for a few hours. The continental breakfast is great! Nice to have your coffee on a roof top or your balcony & listen to the waves crash. We love this place! Can't say enough good things about it!!

The price you pay is for the best ocean view and access to Scripps Park. We booked a 1 bd. deluxe suite guaranteed to be in the main building directly across from the park. When we arrived they told us we had been "upgraded" to a room with 2 beds instead of one. Sounded good until we were told it was in the building up and behind the main building. We had to insist on the room we booked weeks earlier, and they finally gave it to us. The reason for the "upgrade" was to accommodate a wedding party in the hotel.
The room was fine, the website said it had a microwave. It did not. When we asked bout it the only answer they had was "your room doesn't have one". Even when I referred them to the web page, nothing was offered other than to use the one in the office. This was a room with a kitchenette...we wanted a microwave. Never got one.
We were not allowed to go to the rooftop (great view & quiet) because the wedding reception was setting up all day for that night. The next morning we did go to the roof & enjoyed the complimentary breakfast.
Although the room was oceanfront, the bedroom was facing the interior corridor. The party goers "partied" in the halls til about 3am which made sleeping a challenge. The sofa bed in the living room is horrible...springs just about poking thru. Not usable as a bed.
Best part was sitting on our balcony, enjoying the views which included wedding and prom parties taking photos in the park, we even saw a man drop to his knee and propose to a very surprised fiancé (her reaction indicated she said yes).
If you need a kitchenette, bring your own coffee maker (and maybe a microwave!). The one supplied makes about a 3 oz. cup of coffee. Never saw such a small amount before.
Great restaurants within walking distance. We did drive south 11 miles to a quaint German restaurant in Mission Bay, other than that we never needed the car.
You are paying for the nonstop view and location, which is worth it. But don't expect too much inside. The staff was actually very nice even if we did have to push for what we wanted.
Suggest you go for 4th floor or higher in main building or you hear a lot of traffic. Up on the roof which is 5th floor you don't hear a thing so its the best place in the hotel to get away, feel the breeze, and be quiet.

Room Tip: Choose 4th or 5th floor in main building for best access to street but still quiet when on your ocea...

Tara N, Guest Relations Manager at La Jolla Cove Suites, responded to this review, May 31, 2013
Dear Mnmtrip,
Thank you for the detailed review of your stay with us. We apologize that the upgrade was not accurately described to you. When we have a wedding in house, management strategically assigns rooms so that non-wedding guests will not be affected by any noise generated from the wedding. That is our goal. The room you were to be upgraded to was not just a room with two beds; it was a very large suite (930 square feet) on our terrace level with a full kitchen (including a microwave), living room, dining area, and a very large balcony with the most amazing panoramic view of the ocean. We offer these upgrades so that our guests can have quiet enjoyment during their stay, not to accommodate a wedding. The in room coffee makers do just make one cup of fresh coffee at a time. Some people like them, but, like you, some do not, and we apologize for that. We do provide coffee on the rooftop, including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas. Unfortunately, we do not provide microwaves in the small one bedroom suite you reserved. In those rooms we have a small stove and oven, and a small refrigerator, but the electrical system will not support the addition of a microwave. Using a microwave would most likely cause a power outage in the room and we certainly do not want to cause anyone that inconvenience. We thank you for your kind comments about the staff; they take these reviews very seriously and strive to make all of our guests fans of the hotel. We look forward to your next visit.

This has been a very relaxing and enjoyable time away. The units are clean, comfortable, and for the most part complete in offering an at home feeling. Whatever I needed for the kitchen, they provided. The view is spectacular, the staff are very pleasant, the accommodations comfortable, This is our second visit within a year and a week isn't long enough. We walked the beaches, played in the park, stretched out on the grassy lawn, watched the sea lions, swam in the cove, drove to dog beach nearby, had a wonderful celebration dinner out, and shopped the La Jolla downtown village area which is charming. Complimentary breakfast is served (nothing great but OK). There is also the opportunity for use of a gym which we didn't use - no time. We also did not use the pool or hot tub. What they have to really offer is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Downside is, it could use some updating but we can't complain.

The owners of this oceanside complex have done a great job updating it, with good color choices, thick paint and have created a retro beach charm. Nothing is luxurious except the view, but then again the price isn't gong to break the bank either. We stayed in a second floor corner unit, which gave us an additional window, letting in lots of light. Would have liked to been higher than the second floor, but no real big deal. The cove is across the street and charming La Jolla Village just a short walk up the hill. They offer a free membership at a nice gym within walking distance, too! A pretty good breakfast with fresh waffles although I can't get a good cup of coffee here or at the Embassy Suites where we were previously. Everything is clean and although the bathroom has been updated slightly, their next capital improvement should be to replace the tub and shower doors. We'll come back! One down side....my dad made the reservations for us a month ago adn they charged his credit card that day for the full amount - we hadn't even checked in yet.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner unit or terrace level up the hill

If you are interested in staying at a hotel that has great ocean views, great staff and great location you found it at La Jolla Cove Suites. If you request a standard room with a view you will be in heaven ! The location of the hotel is magnificant. You open your sliding door to a ocean view, walk 5 min to all atractions and drive 5 min to wonderful restaurants. ( My family and I ate at Osteria Romantica and only have great things to say about it.) La Jolla Cove suites is where I will stay at from here on out no need to pay more for fancy hotels that are far from everything!

Room Tip: For a wonderful ocean view request for room 401...excellent !
