“Great location with sea views”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

We stayed in a one bedroom suite with sea views at La Jolla Cove Suites for five nights and were satisfied with the accommodation we chose. Front desk staff were all very professional, helpful and courteous at all times, particularly we thank Jennie who had a great sense of humour! Our accommodation was quite satisfactory, although the bathroom is quite compact with a combined toilet situated next to the vanity basin and no drawer space for toiletries. There is no air conditioning throughout the unit but a ceiling fan in the lounge room and electric fan in bedroom. We later found out that you can request a mobile AC unit but this was only realised at check-out. The swimming pool was large and kept clean with barbecues available and complimentary beach towels. The breakfast room is situated on the top floor with a sufficient range of items to eat.

Room Tip: Request a room with sea views and definitely book a suite rather than studio room.

This hotel you pay for the view! The hotel it self is nice. But a warning it has no AC but they do provide fans and sliding glass doors to get the ocean breeze in. The hotel was clean and very roomy for a deluxe room. Sadly though the parking can be hard to come by and quite small if you are in a larger vehicle but the experience over all was completely worth it!

Dear Travelgirl1370,

Thank you for choosing La Jolla Cove Suites! We are glad you enjoyed our first class views and your accommodations. Next time be sure to request a portable AC unit if you will need one, and check in with our guest services team, they will be glad to assist you with parking for an over-sized vehicle. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Pros - great location/view and very nice and helpful staff. Okay pool and great roof deck for breakfast.
Cons - the room was awful, as in we tried to find another place to stay within an hour of checking in. We dreaded returning to our room at night. It was that bad. The sheets and towels were clean, but the carpet turned our feet black within minutes. We rubbed a white towel over the carpet and it was black. I mean this quite literally. It was completely disgusting - I cannot imagine what would happen if you brought a baby or toddler to that room! At least we could instruct our kids to keep shoes on at all times and not to sit on or touch the floor. We didn't want to sit on the furniture unless we first covered it with a towel or sheet. Prior to booking I read staff responses to negative reviews that the furnishings are "vintage" which is an optimistic way to think about it. The exterior is somewhat vintage and charming, but the interior of our room was simply dated and beat up, sub-par and tiny bathroom with a shower that didn't function properly. There is no A/C (but you can easily get a portable unit installed if you need it) and the internet service was quite spotty on our floor. I take no joy in writing a negative review, but in this case I felt it was important to share our experience to give fair warning to others.

Room Tip: Apparently some of the rooms are updated - which perhaps means cleaner?

Old worn hotel in a great location. No air-conditioning made it unpleasant although room fans are provided. Limited parking is available. Hotel rooms need updating and bathrooms are tiny, but the location can't be beat.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for an oceanfront room or suite as that is the best feature of this hotel.

We had a one bedroom suite. The room was approx 900 sq feet with a full kitchen (not that I cooked but I could have) and a balcony with a view of La Jolla Cove. It was so relaxing to just sit on the balcony and watch people, the seals and the sunset. There is also a continential type breakfast on the top floor with seating inside or outside. They served cereal, bagels, muffins, yogurt, fruit, fresh/hot waffles and quiche. Shopping and restaurants right around the corner. I have visited San Diego many many times and I this has to be one of the top hotel stays we have had.

A little pricey during the summer but I felt it was very worth it!!!! If you use the kitchen it will help the budget.

If you are looking for a great hotel resort spa; this ain't it. Check in isn't till 4:00. Our room has a double bed not queen and a kitchen we don't need and didn't request. View of ocean is great but no beach here. Pool and patio areas are ' unexciting'. Needs landscaping. Our room was in an annex of some sort and in no way resembles the rooms on hotel's website. It's just a nice " ok" place to spend the night but we won't be coming back. Staff is nice and helpful.

Dear Linda H.,

Thank you for review! Approximately 90% of our accommodations are suites which all have kitchen facilities for our guests’ convenience. We take pride in maintaining the beachy charm of our oceanfront property, and because ours is a more casual environment we tend to be the perfect place for families and beachgoers alike. Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry we won’t be seeing you again in the future.

Sincerely,
