Our ground floor room looking onto the pool was a bit dull. The room decor needs a facelift I think.
The continental breakfast was good especially if you get there early. Clean. Staff were nice.
Parking is $12 a night. 5 minute walk to ocean and close to the center of the town.

This hotel is located within walking distance of everything -- beach, shops, restaurants. Traffic is light and pedestrian-friendly. The room was big, clean and comfortable. We could see a sliver of ocean from our balcony. The complimentary breakfast buffet was very good, hot and cold items and great coffee. The pool was clean and heated. We would definitely stay here again!

We were nervous after reading some reviews here, but we had a fantastic stay here. Upon checking in, we were told that we had been upgraded to an ocean view balcony room... at no extra cost! That was a great surprise.

The room was clean, view was fabulous, and the price couldn't be beat. Continental Breakfast was fabulous, pool was fine, and my children loved the glass elevator. Location is ideal, walking distance to the beach. We walked down to see the seals every night of our stay, our kids thought that was the best ever. Parking is easy and close-by.

We had a great stay here, and highly recommend!

When we arrived in the evening a nice lady from the front desk checked us in. But the room was not nice at all! We had a room at the first floor right beside the service rooms. Great! The toilet was not working (could not flush) and the room smelled very badly. At the front desk the nightshift boy just arrived. So we told him that we would like a new room because for this price we don't accept this. Furiously he looked for a new room and did not understand not why wanted to change and was very unfriendly. The new room was on the second floor village view and much better. Oceanview is only possible in the highest floor on the right side. Else you will see directly in the next building.
The rooms are not very sound proof. You hear the other guests very well in the other rooms. Also the elevator next door is loud in the night. The breakfast is ok (3 different toasts, Omlets, caffee, milk, joghurt, ...).
Parking is NOT included and 12USD/day. I would not recommend this hotel!
So there are many nice little hotels at the beaches. Try to check goggle maps to find them. Tip: scrippsinn.com‎

The person who called the Inn by the Sea a "cockroach hotel". Is wrong about everything. The hotel is approximately 3 blocks from the Pacific Ocean. It is not more than six blocks to the most distant restaurant in downtown La Village. It is not more than five blocks from EVERY chic boutique in downtown La Jolla. We've stayed at this hotel every year since 2007. In 2007, we stayed at this hotel for 5 weeks.

Having lived in the village of La Jolla for 5 years, we were able to find the ocean we could always see from our different hotel rooms. One half of the hotel faces the ocean, the other half faces the village of La Jolla, which has buildings and other streets.

It may be that the "cockroach" reviewer was drunk during his/her entire stay in this hotel, but it is more likely that they were in the wrong hotel. This is a 3.5 star hotel. We will stay there again in April of 2010
Finally, the only "cockroach" associated with this hotel is the person who wrote that damning review of an otherwise excellent hotel. Having also had the be
