    Lovely staff at the hotel

    The room itself was comfortable . The porcelain on the bath was chipped..and we upgraded to a room with a view of the ocean and it was ok, , but there was a large building obstructing some of the view, and under construction of no fault of their own. Would have been nice to have been told.. however the people working there were extraordinarily friendly. Really wonderful staff that went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.. that’s mainly what stood out for me.. I might stay there again because of the location ., but pick a non view room.

    Charming Hotel in a Perfect Location

    I was so pleasantly surprised by this hotel, which far surpassed my expectations. Some of the reviews suggested that this older hotel was getting a little shabby. That is simply not true! Everything was clean and immaculate, inclusing the bathroom. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. Everything worked fine. You can pay a little more and get a higher floor. It was great to have a balcony, though we didn't pay for an ocean view. The location right in the heart of La Jolla can't be beat. The pool and lounge area were nice touches, especially the 24-hour free coffee. My only complaint ... and it's not trivial ... is that the on-site parking can be a real hassle. There are not enough outdoor spaces. The underground garage is narrow, tiny, and over-crowded with large poles. It literally took me half an hour to squeeze into one of the spaces when I came back late at night. And I could not have done it without the rear-view camera on my car.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Pretty pricey for the quality

    The location was great, but the rooms were sub-standard for the price. I had 2 rooms on the 1st floor for 3 nights, next to the pool gate ( slamming shut until 10pm). Covid/no daily cleaning service meant making your own bed everyday. None of the bottom sheets were fitted so you could wake up rolled up in your sheet and the "blanket" & top spread were very heavy; bathroom was dirty & bathtub did not drain; no business center, but the staff was very nice.

    Location is amazing - great deal for the price.

    For the price this is 100% worth it. We were very skeptical but the location really is unbeatable. You are right next to everything and can walk everywhere. You can also use the scooters to get around so we didn't even rent a car. The rooms are outdate but they were clean and the bed was comfy. The pool area is very cute with water stations, coffee, vending. machines, microwave etc. They did not clean our room once while we there for four nights which was a little dissapointing but we would definitely still stay there again!

    Our favorite hotel! Best customer service!

    We’ve been staying here for the last 4 years when we come for our summer vacation. I can’t say enough about the wonderful staff! Juan checked us in and he is very friendly, helpful and professional! Miguel is also great! We had a top floor room and got the east facing room we requested. Everything was clean and comfortable. My only negative comment would be the lack of fitted sheets on the beds. There was only flat sheets so as you sleep on them they come untucked and bunches up. Everything else was very satisfactory! Love the coffee & vending machines downstairs and the location is awesome! Can’t wait to visit again!
