We stayed for over a week and were happy with our room, breakfast, and location. It was always quiet and very clean when we returned late at night. Parking late was tight, but doable. Look elsewhere if you want more than the basics of excellent mattress, good coffee and tea with pastries in the morning. Bathroom was for one person use at a time, but again plenty of hot water in shower etc. Very much worth the price.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

If you don't mind the dated feel of the rooms then you will you couldn't do much better at a fair rate than staying at the Travelodge La Jolla Beach. Literally just a short walk away from the ocean, the Windandsee Beach is a quiet place to spend and evening watching the sunset. We stayed 3 nights and didn't have any troubles with parking near our room. The rooms are not huge but there was good room for 2 people. We were on the ground floor and at times could hear those above us. The air conditioner worked well. We don't mind the noise as we sleep with a fan at home for the white noise. Sadly the motel is not close enough to the beach to fall asleep with the waves.

The shower was wonderful with a nice large head that was high on the wall and adjustable for those 6 foot and above. Hot water came quickly in both the shower and sink. There is was a small window with bars on it in the bathroom. Bedding was nothing fancy, the mattress was firm but not hard. Room comes with a refrig and microwave.

Breakfast was simple with no place to actually eat as it is in the lobby of the motel. Many were sitting on outside benches or on the parking lot curbs. One morning we went to the small café next door and had eggs with bacon and that was good, sitting outside and enjoying the mild September morning.

Great location to drive to the many sites, but it is not near the freeway so you will have to navigate the surface streets to get to where you want to go. There isn't much within walking distance, but several areas of food and shopping are available within a short drive. Front desk Olga was very helpful when we arrived and checked us in quickly and was able to answer our questions.

Our reservation was made several months in advance and was about $250 for 3 nights.

What the Travelodge is: a block away from Wind n Sea, one of the classic surfing beaches in the USA and made famous by the Beach Boys; a very quiet place to relax when you are done with your busy day in San Diego; a clean room with good extras (mini-frig and microwave). Also across the street from Su Casa, one of the best Mexican food restaurants anywhere. What it isn't: a palatial showy hotel with monster rooms and lots of extras that you don't use.

It is also on the outskirts of old La Jolla so 5 or so minutes from the mess of downtown LJ. It is also two blocks from Nautilus Street, which is the quick route to downtown San Diego or even LJ Shores (get some directions for either trip). Several blocks from LJ High School and not far from Bird Rock.

My room (212) has a wonderful decent-sized tiled shower. Haven't seen one of those even in the most expensive hotel. Never needed to use the A/C though it was warm.

The hotel's secret weapon is Olga, the lady at the front desk and innkeeper extraordinaire. She is very helpful.

Room Tip: Room 212 is a queen and small but has a tiled shower.
