Best location in La Jolla. Park your car, unpack, and you can walk pretty much anywhere - nothing much is more than a mile or so away, including PB to the south. Two blocks down from La Jolla Blvd is Windansea - which is a consistently great beach for surfers. I prefer to go down to PB and rent a...

My wife and I are enjoying our stay here very much. It is an intimate setting close to the beach, with a comfortable courtyard pool area and nice rooms. A great location and the staff is great. Highly recommended.

The property was average; motel style. The room smelt a little musty, and could have used replacement of the carpets. Breakfast was nice as was the pool are. Close to the ocean. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and very helpful; made up for the deficiencies.

I'll make this short. Close to an pretty but little-used beach. Good breakfast. Very adequate rooms. Ask for a room away from road since its quite noisy. Some have to park in adjacent alley - not safe.

Clean and near the beach. I was disappointed in the accommodations with a soggy carpet leading into the bathroom and "dingy" overall feel. Pool area is nice except a big sign on doors about people who have had diarrhea in the past 14 days are not to use the pool? Really? Won't stay here again.

Dear Smayberry, I know! But, it reminds everyone one that they are using a public pool and it is required by County of San Diego, Department of Health. So, we’ll have to put up with the signs. However, Yuck!, soggy carpet and “dingy feeling”…that is something you never have to put up with. I am very sorry. Please give me...

We stayed here overnight in earl July. The extra gravel parking lot was needed due to a large truck we were driving. The front office staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and ready for our stay. The shower had a little bit of a funky smell to it-- I think it was the ocean smell. But everything...

I just stayed here for the long fourth of July weekend, and was generally happy. I mean, it is a Holiday Inn Express so my expectations were not super high, but I will stay here again when I travel to La Jolla. I have stayed at the Travelodge across the street several times and this is certainly a superior hotel...

The beds were comfortable. But I wish they had an offering with a king-size bed. The breakfast is very respectable. Hot tub nice. Pool clean.
