Great family hotel
This is our second stay at this hotel with our family and the first time, we swore we would go hang out at the pool and enjoy the lounge furniture and outdoor heaters. The kids loved the heated pool and hot chocolate and we loved the ambience. The room was slightly dated, but clean. I always prefer a down comforter, but that’s a personal preference and the bed and linens were decently comfortable. It’s a good place to stay for the value in this area.

Nice location
We spent 2 nights at this hotel. Chose the location as it was relatively close to UC San Diego where we planned a campus tour and location near the beach. Walking distance of the beach and La Jolla Cove and many shops and restaurants nearby. Room was clean. It was a bit of traffic trying to get out of La Jolla due to road construction but overall a nice location to hang out. Would stay here again.

Great location easily able to walk to the beach and restaurants. Had an ociean view room with a balcony and could hear the ocean at night.

Great Location in Central La Jolla
This hotel has a lot going for it. Great location near everything in central La Jolla. Our room on the third floor had relatively new furnishings and was very spacious. Only a couple downsides, the rooms don't have great sound insulation (especially plumbing noise) so if you are noise phobic this might be a problem. Earplugs at night solved that problem for us. Also, given that the hotel is 2+ blocks from the ocean, the "ocean views" are pretty compromised and overlook an alleyway.
