We were in La Jolla for just a week-end for a wedding and the La Jolla Cove Suites was where the reception was held and it was also the wedding hotel where rooms were booked. Upon arrival, I thought I'd arrived at a motel from the 1950's and that thought never went away. Some people call it "retro" in previous reviews. That's being generous. I call it old and outdated and very disappointing for the price. The room was small and while the bed and linens were fine, I wouldn't say it was a nice room. The sliding glass doors to the balcony did yield a gorgeous view of the ocean (it's BEST point) but we wondered why there were small, portable fans going all over the room when we walked in. We turned them off, opened the sliding glass doors and were greeted by the worst smell imaginable. So the choice for the week-end was listening to fans all night, or enjoying the cool not so fresh, smelly air. When we went down to the beach and saw all of the sea lions, we figured out where the smell was coming from. Our bathroom was about the oldest and smallest hotel bathroom I've been in, with sliding glass shower doors that had to be from at least the '50's and with a toilet with an industrial handle to flush. Really? We paid a special wedding rate, that was still about $200/night (probably good for La Jolla) but I would have gladly paid more for a better hotel. If it had been located anywhere other than La Jolla, it couldn't have been rented for more than $49/night. They were sold out the nights we were there (amazing!) so I think they could put a little money into remodeling.
