“A magic place between ocean, palms, seals and seagulls”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

The suite with had a small terrace, that seagulls considered theirs. The bedroom was abit claustofibic, but the living, with a view over the palms, green loan and the beautiful ocean was almost priceless.
Service is all good but the luxurious breakfast is nothing more then a skim continental breakfast.
The Parking at $20/day is a real reapoff. Just halfbock away a public parking offers allday parking for $10.
The Swuiming pool is not so useful. Not even bathrobes offered.

Room Tip: Don't use their parking lot, but the one in Prospect street

I just returned from a week in San Diego and my whole family really enjoyed staying in this hotel. The setting is stunning. Yes the rooms are dated, but they are clean, the staff are friendly and attentive, and the rooftop breakfasts were really nice. It was also really nice to be so close to a variety of restaurants and shops. We were able to push our two young kids in the stroller along the pathway overlooking the ocean, then up to the strip for a nice dinner. It was also very family friendly and quiet. If you are looking for fancy finishing touches then it's not for you. But it is very charming and we will definitely return next year.

This is the second time we've stayed at La Jolla Cove Suites - the first time, back in 2012, we were lucky enough to stay in the oceanfront suite that was highlighted on the "Hotel Impossible" TV show.
This time we stayed two nights (8-9 Feb.) in one of the Terrace two bedroom suites and it was awesome. The front desk staff did a great job helping us combine a one night stay (Christmas gift) with a one night reservation we made into an upgrade to the Terrace Suite.
it was an absolutely elegant and relaxing stay. Two bedrooms, two full baths, large living room, dining area, large wet bar area, and full kitchen. The views of the park, the Pacific Ocean and the far shorelines were fantastic and available from almost every place in the unit.
We thought another couple was going to go with us, but they backed out and we had a wonderful time in this extra large set of rooms.
We were just steps away from Prospect St. and some of the best meals we've had in a long time.
Our unit had been recently upgraded (painted, etc.) and the heaters were not working when we first arrived, but the friendly maintenance crew arrived in minutes after our call and had them back in working order. It was quite obvious that this place has been continuously upgraded and improved since our last stay. We were very impressed with the friendly helpful staff.
We had an absolutely great time and are now planning a return visit.

Room Tip: Call the front desk staff to request a special room or get advice on the room types.

Can't beat the location as others have said. Hotel is clean and reasonably priced. It is quite dated but we were impressed with the pool and hot tub. We had an ocean view suite which was well worth the extra cost and I highly recommend these for the incredible balcony and views. Rooftop breakfast with a view was killer! Will stay again if back in the area.

Location is awesome with the view of the cove. However, we reported a leaking toilet in room 110 and asked for another room. We were assured that it would be fixed and cleaned up before we returned from dinner but this did NOT happen. Leaking toilet left bathroom floor wet and covered with towels. "No other rooms" were available. We would have left had we not been so exhausted from our day. Besides the room had been prepaid via Booking.com. Still waiting on a contact from the Manager who was not available on a Saturday night.

Room Tip: Review the room in detail before you unpack or leave for the evening. You will not get a chance to m...

As others have said "location" is #1 for this hotel. Short walk up the hill is village with restaurants and shops. We rented 3 suites with 2 queen beds and 1 studio for a 4 night birthday celebration. It was absolutely perfect The view from balconys were of the cove & pacific ocean. We had full kitchen with regular size refrigerator & stove. We used one room as main party room and housekeeping was great about our mess. We also cooked burgers on the hotel's very nice bbq grills by the pool using their bbq set. The pool area has been remodeled and is open again. All of the clerks, especially Karla, were friendly, patient, & efficient. Rooms were large. Bathrooms had tub & walk in shower. Continental breakfast was fairly basic except for coffee machine which did cappachino, mocha, latte, etc. They made waffles for you plus there were hard boiled eggs and fruit. There is indoor & outdoor seating for breakfast on the fifth floor. Each morning our entertainment was watching the reaction of other guests as they left their waffle outside to get a piece of fruit or drink, only to have the gulls steal their waffle (or toast, beigal,etc). The look on their faces were priceless. If you are looking for 5 star go elsewhere; but if clean with gorgeous views are for you, here it is. All 14 of us agreed that we will return here.

It's dated but they keep it clean well maintained. Small, old bathrooms with low end amenities, simple but adequate rooms some with great sea views, al with old AC units (seldom needed?). Breakfast on top floor is typical, modest servied in a very lovely room. Very friendly and helpful staff, but $20/day parking hurts.

Room Tip: When reserving ask if NOISY road construction is completed yet
