This hotel has great location right next to la jolla cove and several great near by resturants. However this hotel is so old. Just not really a nice looking hotel to be staying in while in California for a vacation. Your paying for the location. We could hear the neighbor next door snoring ever single night and the guest upstairs all the time.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed the balcony that came with the room. This Hotel is good value and convenient to the waterfront and village.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great view, super friendly staff!Genuine Expedia guest review
We will definitely stay there again. It was very nice and the staff was nice. Great breakfast included.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice little hotel"
This is a nice small hotel. The room was very small but adequate. You can't beat the location. Staff was great. You have to park a few blocks away but it's only $6.00. If you want to be in the center of La Jolla and not spend a fortune on a room this is a good choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A very nice hotel close to both beach and downtown"
I would definitely go back. Get a upper room with balcony.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great beachfront location. Tough on cars, though, because there's no parking lot, and the neighborhood is very, very popular (deservedly so). Rooms are small, but the hotel service was very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate and convenient"
Easy location near the water in La Jolla Village. Kind of weird over abundance of shockingly priced items to buy in the room. Example: sample sized toothpaste: $5.00. It made me practically afraid to touch the small amenities. I expected the tissue box to be marked at $0.50 each.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing but close to beach"
Room was teeny! Musty old smell and towels were Like sand paper. The room faces a noisy busy Street but with the slider closed, it was quiet. Just very Disappointed overall. Staff was busy chatting w/friends or Texting! We "upgraded" to ocean view... Not exactly What one thinks of....Genuine Expedia guest review
"Sweet location near the beach"
Parking can be a challenge. Also they charged me for using a tooth brush in the room that I actually bought in another store.Genuine Expedia guest review
it was a great respite- the weather was hot and humid -it had fine air conditioning-will book againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"the room was way to small for $200.00 ocean view"
I had such a disappointing stay here. You need to walk 2 blocks down to park your own car, there is NO elevator so your have to carry your own luggage up the stairs and we had a stroller to top it off. The room we paid extra for an ocean view $200.00 a night was probably 20X24 and the balcony was about 8x4 two people barely fit! we ordered continental […] breakfast room service at 7:00 am and was not delivered till 8:00 am, how difficult is it to bring coffle and a bagel? the front office had no newspaper, it was gone by 9:00, already it started me off to a bad day!! we just got dressed and decided to eat at the local restaurants', this place is over priced and extremely small!!

"Bargain with Ocean View"
The La Jolla Inn is at the very center of downtown La Jolla, with ocean view decks on the rooms. Every hotel in La Jolla is expensive, naturally, but this is a great deal. Can't beat the location. Fantastic staff, and I mean FANTASTIC--the housekeeper, Linda, found my lost iPad for me. The free continental breakfast with complimentary room service is […] a huge treat. When you make a reservation, ask to see if you can get a room with a kitchenette--those rooms are quite a bit more comfy. Even without the kitchenette, the rooms are very nice though, very like a European B & B.. If you are completely allergic to noise, it is central downtown, so the weekend nights in summertime get just a bit noisy from the popular restaurant across the street. Didn't bother us at all though. Will definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is nice. It's is older hotel but clean. It's is very centrally located in heart of action. Rooms are small.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lots of character!"
Our stay was very nice! The location is amazing and the views are wonderful. The rooms are a little small and the beds are not the most comfortable. Overall, it's a great place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, service lacking, not worth price"
This hotel is in a great location, but for the price, the tv was old and didn't work. Of course, we didn't discover this until we came back at 0200 from being at a club across the street, so we didn't tell them until checkout, and the lady was barely apologetic, and said we should have told them right away so they could repair it, therefore, there was […] nothing they could do (as far as taking anything off the bill). She said we would need to contact Expedia. I doubt they would have sent a tv repairman to our room in the middle of the night lol. Also, the continental breakfast had to be ordered, instead of self- serve, and they got it partially wrong twice. The coffee carafes were empty, and the parking was over two blocks away. There was no one to help us with our bags. It just seemed like for the price, the service should have been a bit better... I left thinking, "we should have stayed at my house (also in San Diego) for free." Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced, extremely noisy, cramped room"
We checked in at 9 pm to a room with a front door less than 3 feet from a busy public sidewalk. The "view" from the single window was of wrought-iron security bars and a low wall that only partially blocked gawking passersby. The carpet had prominent stains, although the rest of the room seemed reasonably clean. Every sound, including the nearby nightclub […] singer, sidewalk conversations, slapping of flip flops, clacking of high heels or dogs' toenails, could be heard in that room! In the morning, for at least an hour starting about 8:30 am, close-by nail pounding and power tool noise took over. Our continental breakfast, minus two of our choices for muffin or croissant, was delivered quickly to our little room. We later went up to the "terrace" to see the view. Fine if you don't mind going up two stories on an outdoor metal staircase. For the price we paid, it was more than disappointing - we really felt like we had been gouged. Barring Super Bowl weekend, there was no reason to charge so much for so little. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Horrible. Over priced."
Horrible. Small room. $$$, ac broke. Blinds broke. Leaky ceilingGenuine Expedia guest review
"location, location, location???"
Price is cheaper than other places, but here's why... the place is pretty run down. The front door frame to the room was ready to fall apart, the toilet leaked which caused wet carpet that smelled horrible, the windows were very dirty which ruined the somewhat decent view, and the parking was a few blocks away. I guess the location and the price are […] the only things going for this place. I'm going to spend a bit more and walk next time. No return visit for us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location of this hotel is great but everything else is pretty mediocre. The bed was very soft and there was no ventilation in the room and the air conditioning didn't work so my entire stay here was extremely stuffy. I tried to ask for a fan but they didn't have anything. The village level rooms open basically onto the public sidewalk. This is an […] excellent location but I think you can find deals at nicer hotels around for similar prices. I don't think I'd stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel parking lot is two blocks away from hotel. No help with baggage and no elevator. Great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
noise from street and no insulation from thin single pane glass windowsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Location - can't be beat"
Pros: The location was great, in the middle of everything and only a short walk to the beach. Free Continental breakfast brought to your room. Cons: our AC didn't seem to work very well, which normally wouldn't be a problem, but with the recent heat wave our room was pretty hot. Parking can be an issue, but they do have a lot for $6, just pull up to […] the white loading area in front and you shouldn't have a problem. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
It was just okay. It's an older property. The towel bar in the bathroom kept falling off. You call the front desk - they apologize, but no one ever comes to fix it. Parking is a nightmare and you have to park blocks away. I think all the hotels in the area are that way. The best part was the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
lousy breakfast offerings... not having in stock what was on menu . staff very nice, room very clean, although we had to rearrange to use mini frig. a weird set-up. Did not know it was so close to constant NOISE. BEAUTIFUL roof top !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel is in a wonderful spot, with balconies and even an ocean view. The room was small, but the bed was great. What marred the stay significantly is that the front desk is closed early in the morning and the office area is actually locked. That was a big problem for us, because we are businessmen on east coast time and we wanted to turn in our […] keys and parking pass at 5:30 local time to get to a 6:30 appointment. No one was there to let us check out. This was compounded by my colleague forgetting his laptop in the room and he could not get back in. We had to come significantly out of our way later in the day to get his computer and for me to turn in the parking pass all because they did not have anyone there over the night shift. I've never seen this, even in cheap motels in the midwest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would definitely recommend this hotel"
It was very clean and comfortable. Exciting surroundings including many fine restaurants, the ocean and shops. The staff were pleasant and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"enjoy sunset at deck"
Nice hotel, we enjoy the sunset at deck. Hotel locate at town center, we can go everywhere in La Jolla by walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel's walls are paper thin. i could hear the cell phone vibrating on the table in the room next to mine. i had to listen to the people in the room above me dragging their furniture around for hours, and the people next to me arguing about where the girl's cell phone was. if you are thinking you can open your sliding door on the ocean side and […] get nice breezes and listen to waves, don't bother. it's way too loud on that street until about 2 am. there is a bar with an open area and a band. oh and don't buy anything in the "convenience store" on the first floor because it charges "hotel" prices for the snacks. for example, a can of soda is $3.50 plus CRV and tax. lame.

"Be aware of parking problems."
Parking was terrible. I had to park two blocks from the hotel in the parking lot that the hotel had sent me to park. Being a senior citizen it was a long walk for me to walk back to the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

Really nice for a weekend get away. Great staff. The room we had was a little small but we enjoyed the balcony overlooking the local happenings. Very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review

"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

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
