I always hate to write anything negative about a stay but if you have an issue with mold and or mildew, you need to be warned. I can't speak for any rooms other than the one we stayed in for three days at the beginning of October 2011. At first we thought that the room was just stale, but soon...

This was a lovely place to stay while in La Jolla. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The front desk was so very friendly, Lanie, in particular. The room attendants were also friendly and greeted you with a smile. The breakfast was good as it was hot and cold self serve style. They lacked the pancake maker, which we...

We just spent 2 nights at this hotel. The hotel is very nice. It's clean and quiet. This hotel is in a very nice area. If you main purpose of traveling to the area is to spend time sightseeing around San Diego, I would maybe think of staying elsewhere. This hotel is not right off a freeway. It's actually kind...

My husband and I just stayed at this lovely hotel for a weekend get-away for our anniversary. The hotel is located in the perfect spot walking distance to many restaurants, boutiques and the beach. Guest rooms are really clean and spacious with a good sized kitchen. After taking in the sun at the beach we took a dip in the...

This is a not-always-so-much-of-a bargain depending how and with whom you book. Good news: It is walking distance to world famous Windandsea surfing beach (think old Beachboy's song, or Tom Wolfe's short story "Pumphouse Gang" (still there)) Parking is free but confusing, Rooms are small to very small but well appointed (our bath was newly redone). Breakfast was good, but...

Just returned home after another visit to this hotel and we love the location and the area. This hotel is not a 5 star but the service from Susan and her team is. It's a great location and the pleasant walk to "down town" La Jolla is approx 1 mile where you will find plenty of shops, restaurants etc. The...

Reasonable access to the beach, but this hotel is located on a really busy street and the noise is over the top in rooms that face the road. Ask for a room around the pool, otherwise find something better.

After I made a reservation for a 3 night stay, I read some of the reviews and seriously considered cancelling our reservation. Sure glad I didn't!!! Our room was "over-the-top" clean and spatious. It even had a small kitchen with a refrigerator and stove. The grounds were beautiful and maintained well. The overall feeling tone of the hotel was quaint...

We just stayed this past weekend and enjoyed the facility very much. We could tell there had been upgrades to this facility. Very nice shower, plenty of closet space, comfortable bed.

Thank you so much for choosing us to accommodate you. I'm so sorry that your room didn't get serviced in a timely manner. Thank you for mentioning that. It's important for us to know the things we need to pay more attention to. Great suggestion about opening the pool/spa hours an hour earlier. I'll take that into consideration. Please come...

I have to say I'm a bit conflicted about my review of this hotel. The service deserves 5 stars. The front desk staff was friendly, helpful, and incredibly accommodating. They offered me a free room upgrade and gave me a 2pm checkout time. However, the rooms just aren't very nice. It appears to be an old motel that was turned...
