It's hard to believe that we stayed at the same Holiday Inn Express mentioned in the previous review. We stayed 6 nights in 2 double bedded rooms, August 8-14, 2012. This very quaint and quiet hotel is very reminiscent of Southern California resort stays of an eariler time. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were along the pool area (132 and 133). The rooms are large and each has a refrigerator and micro wave. They provide the opportunity, and savings, to not have to find a restaurant for every meal. Plenty of room to keep sandwiches, soda, beer, or whatever right in the room and enjoy the relaxation to eat right around the pool, where there are plenty of tables. The free breakfast selections are more than adequate for both adults and children. We never had trouble finding parking (free) in the lot or along the street behind the hotel.
But if you are looking for a modern big box hotel with amenities such as large pools, bars, full service restaurants, fitness room, well this is not the place for you. However it is for anyone looking to stay in La Jolla, very close to the ocean, and a great beach, provide free parking, free breakfast every morning, in a setting from another more simple time, and all for under $200 a night, this hotel will do just fine. We would definitely stay here again.More
