Well what hasn't already been said? This place is value for money! It is clean, the beds are so comfy! The staff are lovely. ideally placed-close to La Jolla centre, a very short walk to Windansea Beach. $5 return bus ride to La Jolla shore to go kayaking, use the same bus ticket to ride to downtown San Diego, or even the airport? If we ever return to SD this is where we'll stay be fools not to.

If you enjoy a classic 50's style while on a road trip, this is it. Clean, comfortable and very friendly!
The value for the area is fantastic. The penthouse has a private patio, a view of the ocean and a private staircase to the pool and spa. An easy walk to the beach. This is not an overdone high buck place but it is a very nice classic and clean place. Nice updates like the flat screen tv, good quality bedding make me want to return. A mid century classic!

Room Tip: Get the penthouse. Private patio and a view of the ocean!

A 50’s style classic! What a great description! We do feel like La Jolla Beach Travelodge is aging gracefully adding those little improvements like a spa and a heated pool that make the hotel more elegant. We did preserve the Hwy 101 spirit, so get in the car and you have a place to stay in La Jolla while you are on your road trip. You are sure to be welcomed by our friendly staff with a clean comfortable room with modern ACs and heating units, free Wi-Fi, cable TV, lighted makeup mirrors, hairdryers, and kitchenette facilities.

Ever time i go to S.D. for r/r I always stay here. It is clean, very close to the beach, great little
places to dine (Just love "the promiscious fork:) and few other places. If i had two things to
share with I would like to see is. 1) Fresher smelling rooms (air freshners) 2) When housecleaning cleans the toilet from the previous occupants, put the paper over the seat that
show the toilet was cleaned (hopefully you know what that means. 3) Lastly. Your GM Danny
is excellent, I really enjoy his personality and he is always helpful. However, the young lady
who is usually in the morning shift can be more friendlier. I highly recommend she attends some
customer service training and smile more. Other than that, my only place to stay over the last 13 years. Thanks also for the great rates

Thank you very much for always staying here for the last 13 years. It’s a great reward for all our efforts. We appreciate all your observations and advice. We can learn a lot from looking at ourselves with the eyes of the return guest. All our front desk people attend regular trainings. We believe that if the training is right it boosts motivation and contributes greatly to the person’s performance.

We try to air the rooms out naturally and to use fans and ozone machines rather than to spray air fresheners. Some people are allergic on chemicals and many of our guests prefer not to have their rooms sprayed. We have air fresheners available at the front desk for the guests to use. Also by request the housekeepers will spray the room every time they clean it.

We used to put a paper liner on the toilet seat years ago but no longer. It was a strip of paper that went around the seat and cover. It didn’t mean the toilet was clean because someone could lift the cover and seat and use the toilet. We just follow the Travelodge standards and make sure the toilet is properly cleaned.

I booked our stay here after reading many glowing reviews, and we were not disappointed. The entire staff is friendly, courteous, and eager to please. The room was comfortable and included a table and two chairs, a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. It had everything we could need, as there were several electrical outlets in the room and plenty of lighting in both the sleeping room and the bathroom. The continental breakfast, with bagels/cream cheese, pastries, cereal, and fruit, was generous. The property itself is well maintained and lovingly cared for. The location is terrific, too. The beach is just a short walk away. Plenty of interesting shops and restaurants, as well as a supermarket, are nearby. Downtown San Diego is less than 30 minutes away. This motel has it all, and we wholeheartedly recommend it.

Thank you for the glowing review! Everyone who works here: the housekeepers, the maintenance, front desk personnel and the management sincerely love La Jolla Beach Travelodge. The hotel is close to the beach, to La Jolla Village, UCSD, Torrey Pines, La Jolla Shores, and many other popular places. The hotel has everything a person needs at a home away from home: Free Wi-Fi, complimentary continental breakfast, free parking, laundry facilities, heated pool, Jacuzzi, Cable TV and a clean comfortable bed and bathroom. We do everything we can so that all of our guests feel as comfortable and welcomed as possible. For these reasons we have many loyal guests who will only stay at La Jolla Beach Travelodge when they visit San Diego. We are grateful for the exposure we get on Tripadvisor because it brings us new many new guests that will quickly become new friends.

Very clean and staff is friendly...I really enjoyed the oranges on the breakfast every morning. Pool is warm and hot tub even better. The Wind an Sea beach a block away has really white sand but we went to La Jolla Shores Drive to play in the water, anyways, since thats where the rental places are. Very good value. Older motel but kept up as well as anyone could.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience at La Jolla Beach Travelodge. We get a lot of compliments on the fresh fruit we serve during our complimentary continental breakfast. We offer fresh apples and oranges, a variety of pastries that are delivered daily from the local bakery, assorted bagels with the choice of cream cheese and jelly, oatmeal, cereal with milk, freshly brewed coffee, black and herbal teas, orange juice and hot chocolate.

La Jolla Beach Travelodge is a perfect place to stay if you are here to enjoy the ocean. We are really close to many beautiful local beaches. It’s less than 300 yards to the WindanSea Beach. The Children’s pool, where the seals are, is a mile north. La Jolla Cove, one of the most photographed beaches in Southern California is about one and a half miles. We are about 3 miles from La Jolla Shores and Pacific Beach. The front desk staff is always happy to help with recommendations, directions, local information and any other assistance that a guest might need.
