We arrived in the early afternoon and were greeted by Juanita, who helped us select a large, quiet room for our three night stay. When we left our room the first morning, we encountered guests in a neighboring room who asked if we were awakened by a noisy marital spat that had disturbed others in the middle of the night....

Hotel was dated. WI-FI connectivity was sporadic. When I called the front desk about poor connectivity it they suggested that I call the ISP - that's the job of the front desk, not the job of the guest. No parking near rooms, breakfast was average at best. Broken light switches. A poured concrete top on the nightstand with rough edges...

Thank you for choosing Holiday Inn Express La Jolla during your recent visit. We are happy you did and that you found our beds very comfortable. We have 24 hour technical support for guest Wi-Fi. This support team can determine the exact problem and location. Remotely reboot, reroute and or assist with laptop configuration in a much more efficient manner...

I stayed here December 27-30, 2011. It's very close to the best beach in La Jolla, and about a 5 minute walk to local eating establishments (10-15 minutes walk will get you near the center of La Jolla with loads of restaurants, shopping etc). The room was nicely appointed, and there was always a place to park which is a...

Thank you for choosing to stay at our Great little hotel near the best beach in La Jolla last week. I had the opportunity to walk down to the beach on Saturday and spend a little time in the sun…It sure was beautiful. Happy New Year! We look forward to your next visit. Best regards, Larry

Had wedding guests stay here. Overall mediocre reviews from the entire family. One pair of guests stayed elsewhere due to ?mold? issues. General manager Susan Knapp is great. The hotel IS within walking distance of the best beach in La Jolla / San Diego but culinary options are limited unless you have a car. Cautiously recommended.

Thank you for the recommendation. I’ve recently taken over for Susan, and from what I understand she is terrific. I love our location near an awesome beach and close to Downtown La Jolla and all the fabulous restaurants and shopping. Best wishes for a Happy New Year! Larry P.S. We’re working hard to eliminate caution.

No, we were not greeted as priority club members. Don't think they cared. No, there was not much parking. We were lucky to squeeze into a space in their dark parking lot. It didn't seem like they were at full occupancy. No, we were not told how to get to our room (which turned out to be confusing in the...

How can you complain when you happen to be in La Jolla in December and it's a balmy 79 degrees? This hotel is little older and has been redone, my room was really large with a little kitchen that was convenient. The bathroom was redone with great shower, no shower/tub combo with the yucky shower curtain. Free breakfast, free wi...

This was for work and only reason I was staying here because my preferred hotel was full and this was a last minute trip. I think because of this, my expectations were completely skewed. But arriving at night, the place was all dark and felt like a motel 6. My room was next to the soda machine and parking lot...

Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn Express fare. Staff were very keen to close breakfast room on the dot of 9.30 am, despite the hotel being a holiday destination, and...
