I needed to be situated near La Jolla for a business trip but didn't want to pay La Jolla hotel prices. Answer to this dilemma is the Courtyard by Marriott Solana Beach. Centrally located in Solana Beach and within a 10 minute drive of La Jolla, this is a terrific hotel option particularly for the price paid ($140). Staff is wonderful and welcoming. I got upgraded to a King Spa Suite, very spacious and quiet. I used the spa bath....not exactly the most wonderful experience but it was restful. Free high speed internet and close to the beach. The free, secure underground parking is a strong plus. Several restaurants in the area and a small market is located next door.
The only downside in January is having to walk outside to get to the breakfast restaurant, which is smallish but well run.
This hotel is a great option if you need to be near or north of La Jolla.More
