This hotel was recommended to us by a friend. It was everything we could have expected. The breakfast was delicious....eggs, cereal, waffles, bagels, fruit....we never ate lunch since we had such a hearty start to our day. The room was clean and comfortable. In the afternoon there was coffee and apples for snacks. This hotel is within walking distance to...

had a super nice experience here - nice room facing the ocean. Big balcony! Room very clean - beds ok - blankets - no duvets. Still all was very acceptable. Nice helpful staff. Right in the downtown of La Jolla. Excellent location. I'd definitely go back!

When making arrangements for a one night stay in La Jolla, I was told that the closest vacancy would be roughly ten miles away. The Best Western in La Jolla did have ''two rooms'' left so we stayed. For $224/night, the room was roughly $100 or more overpriced. Next time, we will drive the additional 10 miles

First time to La Jolla, CA. This hotel was nice, staff was very friendly and helpful. By far the best vacation. Sunsets were breath taking. The hotel is walking distance to fun little shops and yummy restaurants. Barfly restaurant is highly recommended. The hotel has an outside pool, very quiet and relaxing.

The location of this hotel in downtown La Jolla is its top draw as far as I'm concerned. It is at the end of one of the main shopping streets in downtown La Jolla which means not much traffic to disturb it's already quiet surroundings. From our balcony, we could see a bit of the ocean and the sunsets. The...

Been staying at this hotel for years when I visit La Jolla. They have upgraded and have full time air conditioning. There is breakfast included, TV is good and internet when present is good but off at times. Parking is still tight and two nights we had a lot of trouble and Saturday parked offsite and Fay Avenue.

The hotel offers parking for a small fee which beats trying to find a spot on the street. Get a room on the fifth floor in the front for a view of the ocean from the balcony. The breakfast served poolside is delighful. Rooms are clean, with good air and are in the process of being updated.

This hotel's location along with it just being remodeled is the place to stay when you are visiting La Jolla. My room had a view of the ocean and when you consider the free breakfast and WiFi all part of a great room rate, what better place to stay!

Stayed here for a wedding event at the La Jolla Women's Club. This hotel was a 3 minute walk from this venue. It was also within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, beach, seal watching, and parks. Rooms are very nice and comfortable. We had a balcony overlooking the pool and some rooms on other side had ocean views. Loved having...
