Two-story townhouse style RI. No elevator, but once you get luggage upstairs, you're treated to an open, spacious penthouse suite (with loft), fireplace, & kitchenette.
(Peculiarity of TV remotes -- turning on upstairs & downstairs TVs at same time -- is remedied by wrapping small notepad paper around end of remote & aiming it at TV.)
Abundant healthy choices for both breakfast & dinner; overflow of diners from gatehouse either sit at outside tables or bring meals back to room.
Well-used rows of working washers ($2) & dryers ($2) are available.
Small fitness center (older equipment) above gatehouse.
Onsite parking $12.
Spectacular location/beauty of La Jolla trumps any slight annoyances.
Impressive kitchen staff consistently amazes with quality of food (variety of fruits, *fresh* salads) & ability to replenish items despite never-ending stream of meal-time guests. (You won't wait long for a depleted item. Only wish they offered *whole-grain* breads/bagels.)
Dinners served 3 evenings only (Mon., Tue., Wed.), but plenty of eateries within walking distance (or brief drive).
Rubio's (fish tacos) & Chipotle are tasty, affordable alternatives. Also, at the shopping center (Villa La Jolla Dr.) has a variety of eateries, Whole Foods, & Trader Joes (if you've time & inclination to prepare meals in kitchenette).
If you've time to explore, La Jolla Cove/ Shores; watch seals at "Children's Pool." (Extraordinarily scenic locations; you'll not regret bringing your camera.)
No problems with internet connectivity or speed.
Unless you prefer less spacious accommodations, avoid studios. Although adequate, if spaciousness is priority, 1-bdrm loft is heavenly. (Once spoiled by such roominess, it's difficult to go back.)
Convenient access to San Diego, UCSD, and natural beauty of La Jolla in a condo/ residential setting (lovely landscaping of flowering shrubs, plants, trees) with business/ commerce a stone's throw away.
If on holiday, allow yourself enough time to explore. If on business, prepare to pry yourself away from such an idyllic worksite. Either way, once you've experienced RI La Jolla, you'll want to return.
