Stayed here 6 days, the week of 4th of July with our kids. I agree with most of the reviews: Great location, room just OK, and staff unfriendly. I would have given this hotel a 2 star if it wasn't for location.
First time in San Diego and we found La Jolla a perfect/central location to be a tourist.
Location of hotel is perfect, across the street from dining/shopping, 2 blocks from the beaches/parks, short drive to Pacific Beach, relatively short drive to Zoo/LegoLand/Downtown.
Room size small, bathroom cramped/moldy/old, nice balcony, decor dated, walls thin (we were next to pool/second floor, thus noisy), a/c hard to adjust, carpet old. Complimentary Breakfast got old fast and went across street after two days. Onsite parking $12/night, but hard to find spot, and one evening we were sent off site to park (manager that night was not very nice when I complained). Agree with previous review, front desk unfriendly from check-in to check out.
Positive: Location, Location, Location, Free Wi-Fi !!, free breakfast, heated pool
Negative: Frontdesk staff, Parking, Bathroom, free breakfast
