We stayed here for several days with the sole purpose of entertaining the kids close to a beach and within walking distance of good eats. We got just that. The La Jolla Cove Suites is your basic good, clean, casual place by the beach complete with spacious units overlooking a lovely snorkeling cove full of sea lions and friendly staff. Although it's quite dated (see photos of suite) the rooms are clean with lots of space. It doesn't feel crowded, but can certainly sound crowded at night or in the early morning (the doors are heavy and slam really hard). They have a nice pool with several available propane grills. The daily service can be a bit unpredictable (i.e. two lotions and no conditioner followed by absolutely no refills of shampoo until requested, inadequate towels, etc.) There is extremely limited food service (an outside vendor for a small list of things) but, again, just a stone's throw from lots of great places in downtown La Jolla.
Kids loved it and kept running off toward the ocean while we couldn't stop staring at the view from the balcony. For the price, it's great and we'd come back, especially with the messy, wild kids.More
