"La jolla getaway"
This place was simple and cozy. a walk to the restrauants, shopping, parks, beaches, coves, and sea lions viewing. After reading other people feedback on La Jolla Inn, I choose this particular hotel based on location and price. (a bit concern of the negative feedback). The ocean view room we got was a little outdated but that didn't bothered us. Our […] room were clean and receptionist was far more than helpful. We had access to coffee and tea anytime on the main floor. Don't forget the bed and breakfast as you awake. They offered a roof top sun deck w/ BBQ grill, heat lamps, and lounger chair for the R&R folks. tips: Park along the street in permitted area. save $$ and it's free.

"Close to sights in La Jolla"
The La Jolla Inn is a good location for shops, restaurants, and viewing the seals at La Jolla Cove. Be sure to see the rooftop patio view. There was a $6 charge for parking the car in a lot a block away that I wasn't expecting. Breakfast can be served on the rooftop or in your room. The breakfast was generous, mostly carbs, and brought to our room a […] few minutes after our order was placed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, but bad execution"
So, the most financially trying part of our stay is that the hotel CLOSES THE OFFICE AT MIDNIGHT. If you arrive after that time, you are out of luck. Is this even legal in the US? Have you heard of a hotel this side of Ho Chi Minh City that closes at midnight? The location of the hotel is great -- right in the center of La Jolla with plenty of shopping, […] dining, bars and beaches within five minutes walk. But this hotel is resting on its laurels. It needs an upgrade and it needs management worthy of the 21st century. We could hear each word that the guy in the next room sang to his toddlers. The clerk at the front desk was well used to this kind of complaint because she immediately asked which side it was on. When we indicated which side, she pointed out that they were checking out that same day, and a single guy was taking the room. That information proved to be correct, but I won't be taking my chances again. To paraphrase Reagan, "Mr. La Jolla, tear down this inn!" Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"small but great"
The hotel is well located, clean and staff is very friendly. My room was small, but had everything you might need, granted that snacks, bottle water and some toiletries were charged separately, but easy to identified in order to avoid unnecessary expenses. It's walking distance to the cove. Parking is 2 blocks away at an extra charge but finding free […] parking on the street was not hard. i would return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad parking, very loud!"
Wasn't as nice as I thought it would be. Parking was two blocks away! The are was so loud we were woken up at five am, very disappointing when all you want from a vacation is to sleep in! I most likely will never go back! Room phone didn't work and one our lights was burnt out.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice location"
The location was very beautiful. It's right by the ocean, and there are plenty of places to walk to around the hotel. Parking is pretty difficult, but that's not the hotel's fault. It is a tourist location, after all. The people at the front desk are very nice, and one of the girls even waited 20 minutes for us to get there because we were late. However, […] we were put in room 4 and our toilet wasn't working. The pipes were corroded so we couldn't fix it and there wasn't anyone we could contact to resolve this issue. The next day we told them and they were very understanding and just gave us a different room. The second room was in much better condition Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older hotel, well taken care of."
This is an older hotel that is well taken care of. Very small, only 23? rooms, it had room "keys" not a key card...thought that was cool. Very nice neighborhood, in my opinion upscale. Parking was free along the street, but hard to get at times. They have a somewhat inconveniently located parking garage, but we never even attempted to find it. Walking […] distance to the beach, shopping, food, rentals (bikes, kayaks, etc.). We will stay here again, enjoyed the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"La Jolla Inn Jan 2013"
Nice quaint hotel. If you are looking for a place with spacious rooms and lots of glitz, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a comfortable, extra clean, well-maintained, older hotel, located in central La Jolla, then this is the place for you. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sub-standard size, noisy rooms, problem breakfast"
Great location, tiny rooms, extremely noisy (inter-room noise), offer a very breakfast menu but always out of items. Only 19 rooms. Maintenance poor in some respects. Overcharge for drinks, snacks and toiletries in rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was extremely noisey in the early morning - could not sleep past 6:00 am because of all the traffic and delivery noise, as well as leaf blowers, etc. Thermastat in room did not work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"PLEASANTLY SURPRISED after reading other reviews !"
Awesome !~ Ok, I have to say that I booked it before reading any reviews... THEN got super scared after reading everyone's reviews. My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and had a really cute room. Had a little kitchen and a nice balcony. Not sure about the other rooms, but ours was perfect ! YES, it's noisy as the walls are super thin. Actually […] can hear other's TV's next door and all the street noise... but that was really the only complaint we had. The front desk was super nice and glad to help with anything you like. The bed was perfect. The AC was awesome. What else... OH, yeah, definitely make sure you're there in time to check in because they do close down the front desk at I think 9 pm ? It's a b&b.. so, you can expect that I guess. GREAT sushi places 1/2 a block away. GREAT beaches just 1/2 a block away as well. AWESOME stay ! Erik Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Was a cute hotel but small room with very thin walls. Neighboring people were smoking marijuana in their room that could be smelled coming down the hallway. Then up all night making noise along with upstairs room banging all night. Nice place but would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed everything about my stay. I just wish the AC would have worked or the window could have stayed openGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint for couples"
They asked if we wanted to upgrade for an ocean view and a king bed. When we arrived in our upgraded $20 a night extra fee room, we found that we had stepped back in time for a Lucy and Ricky Ricardo set of twin beds. They promised to put them together the next day which they never complied.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I paid double this price for 1 very, very bad stay"
Do not believe their pix or their marketing about being a B&B! A quilt on the bed does NOT qualify them as Bed & Breakfast. Neither does Rice Krispies delivered to your door (no hot food or protein), just muffins and cold cereal. H.Johnson's does THAT. The closet could not even accoommodate enough room to hang my full length dress. The halls and stairs […] to rooms are NOT A/C. This is an old decaying apt house with a college kid at the desk who is want to look up from her book that is being marketed as an upscale B&B in La Jolla! When I tried to move to another hotel on Day 2 and cancel this one BEFORE CHECK OUT TIME, she cheerfully said, "Sure. But you will be charged for tonight. Our policy." Smile. Smile. Oh, and every available surface in the room is covered with baskets of things to buy like a $4 bottle of water or playing cards or QTips. Not to mention the large snack shop through a door in their lobby! I came to sleep, not buy all their overpriced incidentals. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"LA JOLLA INN"
THE ROOMS ARE TOO SMALL.GOOD LOCATION,FRIENDLY STAFF,WALKING TO THE PARK AND BEACH.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good place for the price; great location"
This is a good hotel if you are highly motivated to be on a budget but want something decent. If you are going to spend time a lot of time around the cove, the location can't be beat. Parking is $6 daily and the garage is 2 blocks away.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I will never go back"
Our stay was horrible! When we checked into our room the front desk gave us our key and we walked to our room. My husband tried opening the door but there was a table blockin the door. We opened it up and there was a ladies bag and some drinks on the table. We went back and told the lady so she went to check it out. About 20 min later she comes back […] as says " Our room is ready". She explained to us that the room next door had a conjoining door and was using the room for the day. However the hotel was sold out because of an event in town we had no choice but to stay. Not to mention it was 11pm and we had out 5 year old with us. We get to the room and the bed was a mess. We had to ask for clean sheets and when we did the front desk said "looks lik no one slept in the bed" . 4 am rolls around and we "neighbors" start knocking at the conjoining door and party all night. The bath room floor was full of sand and the next morning when I went to take a shower all the the others peoples stuff was in the shower, along with a bunch more sand. We of course let the desk know what happened and they said they would make a note to have a manager call us. Four hours later we called and left a message. Day later, another message. By day 3 got to talk to a manager and was told we need to talk to the owner. Left a message 2 times and still not call. This hotel has HORRIBLE customer service and I will NEVER recommend it to anyone. Poor customer service and an embarrassment to the online service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Main thing is the exposure and view vs $ = huge. Good condition but older style (key locks and tube TV), but excellent location and we had a balcony that looked over the LaJolla Cove, with the night sea breeze, waves, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good place to stay... not great"
The hotel is cozy and quaint for couples looking to get away to the beaches of La Jolla. The room resembles a small beach-cottage feel, kind of thrown together. Although it's pleasant, don't expect an overly-romantic experience due to the ambiance. The place is great for a place to stay but not quite bed and breakfast appeal as they like to make it […] seem. Still I would stay again if the room rate is a bit lower or the room quality a bit higher. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"La Jolla is perfect for a romanic weekend getaway"
We loved it! Hotel was great, perfect location for snorkeling, shopping, and some nightlife. We had a blast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"poverty with a view?"
I stayed in a smaller room since I was travelling alone. The room was just large enough for a bed and tv. I had to side step to get past the tv to the restroom. The threshold hardware going into the bathroom had an exposed nail that I nearly cut my foot on when I stepped down. The coffee maker disn't work and neither did the air conditioning unit. The […] window wouldn't stay open on it's own so I propped it up with the amenities binder. Lastly, the door had to be slammed in order to latch completely. I'm sure the neighboring guests were not happy about that. Oh...and there is no onsite parking. There is a parking garage 2 blocks away that they will charge you daily to use. All that aside, this hotel was in a beautiful location very close to the beach, shopping, dining, etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The location is the only good thing"
Located a block away from beach, perfect! As for the hotel.. It sucks the beds are hard, paper thin walls. Woke up by a women crying on the roof and a couple in the room next to us fighting.. I could hear every word! They shouldn't even say they offer breakfast when they only offer snacks, like bread and that's it. The location is the only thing holding […] this hotel up, I love La Jolla. There price is definitely not worth it! I booked a king suite at the Hampton for cheaper than there price and it was waaaaay better! But again location is everything. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room I was in was very small and I can't really imagine how two adults would fit comfortably in there. the location was great, just a two minute walk to the beach and amongst great restaurants. I came into contact with four front desk attendants, who were all helpful but not necessarily enthusiastic. There's also a great view from their roofdeck. […] Basically, you're gonna pay location over amenities Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Cove suite was very nice. The direct negative is the door to the patio.The bamboo blinds are see-through. One could easily look through it specificaly during the evening and at night.Also the generator across the street is during the night very noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't arrive too late"
Do not arrive too late, the front desk closes at 10pm and there is no one to check you in or answer your phone calls. You will be stuck without a place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
La Jolla is in a great location, although parking was a little tough to find late on a Friday night. I was just stopping there for the night on the way to somewhere else but decided to hang around in the morning because there was so much to do. La Jolla offered complimentary breakfast that they bring to your room. Great service in a great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location in La Jolla"
La Lolla Inn is within walking distance of all the great restaurants and shops and also the beach. The sun deck has an awesome view. Parking is only a few blocks away for $5.00 a day, or try to snag a free space by the hotel. We used the garage as it was covered and we really didn't need the car while we were there. This was our second time to stay […] at La Jolla Inn, and will not be our last. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location of the hotel is nice, you're by the beach, close to food, and you're right on the strip. However, there are night clubs nearby; you can hear the music until 3:00am every night, the music is loud. The walls are thin so you can hear other people's business. This is not a place for a romantic getaway. I asked for a king and got two single […] beds pushed together. The rooms are small. The free breakfast is cheap and unsatisfactory. You have to walk two blocks to park your car & there is a separate fee for parking. This place is NOT WORTH WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel with a patio on the roof of the hotel where you can barbecue and entertain guests. Spectacular view from the roof top patio overlooking the Pacific ocean. We had a great 3 days there. The rooms are smaller than regular rooms at other hotels in the USA, but about the same size as hotel rooms in Europe. We are from Sweden, so we were ok with […] the smaller room size. If I return to the San Diego area in the future, I will check-in to this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel service need improvement."
Hotel was well maintained and clean, but service could have been better. Maid service missed cleaning the room one day. Had to specifically ask the front desk for maid service the next day. Continental breakfast on the sundeck was nice, but bagels were delivered untoasted. Had to walk down 3 flights of stairs to the toaster. Night desk clerk was rude […] and sarcastic.

"STAY AWAY FROM THIS SHABBY NOISY PLACE"
AVOID THIS PLACE. Spend a few dollars more and book someplace where you can sleep! The bar next door plays boom box music till wee hours at night. The "ocean views" are pathetic window-doors with tiny balconets that give you at best what an ambitious realtor would call a peekaboo view. For my money, this is the worst booking I have ever done on Expedia […] in seven years online and 80 or more properties.! Never again will I return, and I suggest you try any other place within ten miles -- even the humble Best Western 4 blocks away, which is near where you have to park for this join, btw because they do not have any adjacent parking which forces you to walk several blocks to their underground community parking lot, to add insult to injury. The desk person is nice enough, but it's really shabby at the counter and in the halls. Continental breakfast was a C minus packaged stuff you could have bought at the run-down convenience store in the same building. Read the other reviews at Trip Advisor if you are still not convinced. the location is near the Valencia which of course is pricier, and frankly I don't think any of them on Prospect Street is worth it anymore because of the noise factor. La Jolla is no longer a charming little place to sleep unless you're in one of the more modern properties. And this place is the worst. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Weekend for 2"
We Love LaJolla, spent many weekends there with family or just the 2 of us. The hotel was small and pricey. Yet there was no true accomidations to brag of. The room was small for the price, and to make matters worse the bed was something we talked of throwing out the window and sleeping on the floor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was located in a perfect area and the staff were friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed our stay there and we plan to go back and stay at same location. The only thing that could be construed as a negative is parking. If you are unable to find parking next to the building, their parking garage is two blocks away. But it is a short distance and […] enjoyable walk in talking in all the shops as you stroll. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"La Jolla Inn so conveniently located"
This lovely European style hotel is located in the heart of the seaside village of La Jolla. It's only one block to the beach and parks, and directly in the middle of the commercial district with an incredible number of restaurants and boutiques. Ask for a room with a balcony. Breakfast is served on the roof deck patio or in your room. Great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Downtown La Jolla"
Perfect location - great roof top and room views of the ocean. Water damage on the room ceiling. Beds are far to soft and lack support. Staff was very nice and accommodating. A fair value for the cost per night based on location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"almost but not quite"
Over all the hotel is quite nice. The room was small but well appointed and comfortable, the deck is small and not very private from your neighbor but it has a lovely view of the water. The morning meal was not quite what I expected from the promotion the hotel gave, bagels and such bought from Costo and rewarped in plastic wrap. It was served in our […] room on a little tray, that was nice but really very "European" as they would like to tout it. Still I will try them again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room description of "room with ocean view""
It was a nice yet small room. The ocean view description for the room I found misleading. We expected more of a view from the room, not a small partial view from the deck.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fine, but not great."
This hotel is fine, but leaves some things to be desired. Nice walkable location and affordable. Also has ocean view rooms. However, the rooms are small and the mattress is like sleeping on a block of jello. They try to up-sell you on all sorts of things which is annoying. The staff is mostly good but there were some misses. Bottom line, I would try […] other hotels before staying here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pity- needs upgrade!"
This hotel has an amazing location. It's European style- meaning the room is small, it's not well kept and the staff is minimally attentive. Our room had a bad odor and the drape was too small to block the light so we were awoken with the light of morning. The mattress is past due to be replaced. No in-room safe for valuables. We happily paid extra […] at check-in to upgrade our room to "ocean view" (really partial only)- not for the view but because the standard room we booked had entry on the street- not very private or intimate. Bathroom was very clean. Breakfast on the roof patio is very pleasant. They also have a nice library for borrowing books and a tea and coffee station with cookies. Free internet. The hotel is very reasonably priced for the area and they offer some nice services but the room is pretty dumpy. Not very romantic. We got a thank you email from the hotel with request for feedback. When I wrote back, with my feedback, (since they asked), I never heard back from them. Next time, we'll stay more inland at a nicer hotel especially if we plan to sleep late.

The room and hotel were excellent choices. The pillows were exceedingly hard and uncomfortable. The bed covering (bed spread) was unacceptable for a hotel seeking to be viewed as superior. The bed covering was quilted and heavy, and neither warm nor comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review

"No hot water..."
My mother and I stayed at the La Jolla Inn for a night. The location was wonderful...but the Inn was not. We had no hot water... in fact, it was barely warm, even thought we let it run for several minutes. This was the situation both at night and the next morning. We spoke with Michelle, the manager. She told that there was nothing wrong with the shower […] and there was nothing she cared to do to make restitution. She was unfriendly and unhelpful. I could have tolerated no hot water - but not the condescending and rude attitude. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
