We recently stayed at this hotel on our way back from Hawaii and wanted a somewhat cheaper hotel to stay in. First, the location of the hotel is a bit deceptive. It's really not all that close to downtown La Jolla, or Scripps park...you'll have to drive about 5 or 6 minutes to get there. I was under the impression... More

Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit. I apologize for the misperception that we were located in Downtown La Jolla.

I stayed for one night in Jan. 2013. I was a late check in (like... midnight), and the front desk was very helpful in accommodating this.

Overall it was a pleasant experience. We spent three days in La Jolla and this was our resting place. Just a few minutes from the beach made it's location perfect for the family. Other comments about this hotel are pretty accurate. Very pleasant staff, lots of parking, but rooms in the front were noisy and not ideal to the average... More
