“convenient and good place to stay in La Jolla”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Hotel was conveniently located in the heart of La Jolla. We could go everywhere from here. Our room was very clean and quiet with a view of the ocean. Location on a higher floor seems best. Service was good and friendly but we did not have breakfast there because there were three breakfast places to choose from nearby.

Room Tip: higher floor on the view

this hotel is excellent for the price is in the best part of town, with great places to eat and shop, if you are in for business or pleasure you will enjoy it, another plus is in the middle of the city of la jolla just a walk away from everything mention.

For the price of this accommodation, we thought we'd get another London Hotel duds, but it was great. Great staffs and clean rooms. The best part was that this hotel is located in walking distance to ALL amenities in town, no need to drive around and not having anywhere to park. This hotel was a great surprise to us when we arrived, fantastic value for the location and cleanliness of the rooms.

Fair price for good, clean rooms with all the amenities I need. Not a fancy place, but I don't plan to spend a lot of time sitting in the hotel room. Very short walk to the shore, shops, restaurants. Helpful, friendly staff.

This is an excellent facility. Very helpful and friendly staff of employees. Room was clean and lovely paintings in the room and hallways of the area of La Jolla. Fresh coffee and apples in the afternoon, good continental breakfast. beautiful ocean view from our balcony and amazing sunsets. I would return to this motel any time and highly recommend.

Very clean. Appreciate non-smoking policy throughout the hotel. Staff very courteous and professional. Within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and ocean coast. Computer provided in lobby for printing out boarding pass - very convenient. Lobby nicely decorated and comfortable with wall-mounted large screen TV. Fresh fruit always available. Would stay here again.
