Reading some of the previous reviews, I was concerned when I made my reservation, but the room rate was outstanding, less than $130.00, and the location, directly across from the cove, is great. The cost of parking was $20.00 was more than I like to pay, but, it's LaJolla.
I was pleasantly surprised by the room (134). It faced the rear parking lot and was a bit out dated. But it was very clean and comfortable. It had an older television set. The kitchenette was well equipped and had original mid-century metal cabinets and appliances. There was a nice size balcony with a large sliding glass door which provided plenty of ventilation. Not having air conditioning was not a problem. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel roof top balcony is a great place to watch the sunset over the pacific.
A word about the smell. During my stay, it was present in the morning only. Potential guests should take into account that this hotel is located directly across from La Jolla cove which is one of California's most well known ecological preserves. The cliffs surrounding the cove are populated by large numbers sea lions and sea birds.
