“Affordable and close to the beach”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

We have stayed here twice now and have been happy with our stay both times. The rooms are reasonably priced and clean and include free breakfast. There is always a variety of foods to eat including eggs, bacon, fruit and yogurt. The location is within walking distance to the beach. It was perfect to take a walk and watch the sunset. Our kids loved the pool which was also always clean. The front office staff was friendly and helpful as was the grounds staff. We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

This is a bit of a hidden gem here in La Jolla. Offered an upgrade to a large room with patio on arrival (nice touch for a Gold member) - didn't take it though as it faced onto the road and a little noisy. Took a room in the back in the courtyard instead which is great. We've been here for 3 days and it's proved a perfect base for La Jolla. It's about 30 minutes walk into the village which was perfect for us as it gives us exercise there and back. Hired a car yesterday from Avis and was able to leave the key at the end of the day with reception for free pick-up. Excellent. Decent sized fridge in the room and large shower. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter. If you are a heavy sleeper take a big room with a balcony though.

I really liked this Holiday Inn. Great location, right in the midst of everything. Great room. Patio right off the room. The blinds were broken and the door funky, but it was nice to take out a glass of wine and watch the sky. Was not so good when the family party arrived before I did and camped right outside my room, but they seemed to get the clue and moved on eventually. This could be a problem with having the great patio room.

Great bed, nice bathroom, good towels and sheets.

Plus across the street, they have a nice happy hour to hit before walking down to the beach (four blocks) for the sunset. I will definitely be back.

We stay here every time we visit our son and his fiance in the La Jolla area. The complimentary breakfast is superb enough that it makes up for the pricey nature of the hotel. My only suggestion would be that they have some rooms with king beds. We need a king or two beds, but would prefer a king.

Room Tip: Try to be on the pool instead of facing the street.

This is a very cozy hotel located in a safe and pleasant neighborhood of La Jolla. I adore this hotel and will likely return to it on my next trip to La Jolla. My wife and I really enjoyed staying in one of their larger suites. It was very spacious and comfortable. It was also extremely clean and well kept. The furniture was new and in good shape. The televisions were modern. The AC worked very well and the water pressure was good. The bathroom was very large, clean and well stocked with more than enough towels and bathroom amenities. Check in was smooth and efficient. Zakia was very friendly at check in. Parking is very convenient and easy. The overall layout of the hotel is cozy. It seemed like a lot of rooms overlook the pool area and some of the rooms overlook a small courtyard. The pool area was very clean and also had plenty of comfortable chairs to lay on. The free breakfast which was very delicious included: sausage, biscuits with gravy, eggs, cinnamon rolls, coffee, juice and more. You can sit inside to eat your breakfast or outside at one of their courtyard tables. Lastly, the location is very convenient. It is walking distance to Windansea beach. The neighborhood is lovely and safe to walk in. It is also a very close drive to the beautiful La Jolla Cove. Overall, I recommend this hotel and will likely stay here again.

Room Tip: I recommend a room facing the pool area.
