“Great location but aging motel”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

I Usually stay across the street at the Holiday Inn Express but their prices are sky-high now. This Travelodge has average sized rooms that smell quite musty. Maybe new carpeting would be in order? Location is a couple minutes walk to the beach or a 5 minute drive to downtown La Jolla. Room was clean but the shower had drainage problems. Wifi was not reliable. The breakfast is your basic muffins/cereal/OJ/coffee. No tables in the lobby so carry your tray up to your room. Parking is tight. Will probably stay there again but hoping for some upgrades.

We are glad you are going to stay with us again. We have always kept our prices reasonable while providing the best value for the money in La Jolla. Thank you for your feedback regarding our accommodations. Our guest’s comments always help us improve. If you have any problems during your sty we ask that you let us know, so we can resolve them while you are here. The shower drains have a screen that protects the pipes. Long hair or too much soap will block the screen. The maids clean the screens daily. We are happy to allow our guest to look at a few rooms and select the one they like the best. We have a solid 10 Mbps Time Warner Cable Business Class High Speed wireless internet available all over the Hotel. Our Front Desk staff are always ready to help you connect.
I would call our breakfast Deluxe Continental Breakfast. We serve fresh pastries, danish, muffins, bagels, oat meal, Raisin Bran and Frosted Flakes. We provide cream cheese, peanut butter, butter, margarine, jelly and honey. There are apples and oranges, coffee, hot tee, hot chocolate, orange juice and milk. You can sit and enjoy your breakfast at a table by the swimming pool. There are benches and side tables outside the office or you can use a tray to take the food to your room.

This motel was clean, staff was courteous, and check in was easy. The room was basic and comfortable.

Spent 10 days at this hotel. It is what most of the reviews say; it is well located and reasonably priced for the area. The wind'n sea beach is a 5 minute walk and you are also very close to Pacific Bch and Lajolla Cove. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is an excellent little cafe just around the corner for lunch or breakfast if the free breakfast provided by the hotel doesn't cut it for you.

Room Tip: 2nd flr offers more privacy and quiet.

Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased that your stay at La Jolla Beach Travelodge was to your liking. Our great location is the key! We are just a mile from Downtown La Jolla. That is where you can find another 3 or 4 dozen restaurants of all types. Downtown La Jolla is also full of shops and galleries making it a wonderful place to walk and shop and eat. We hope to see you again soon.

Coming from Montreal , driving down the Californian coast on our way to San Diego, we didn't calculate the July 4th Holliday would be difficult to accommodate us a family of 5 -2 adults -2 teenagers & 10 year old boy.In our car we call the travelouge, right from the start Olga toke care of us, see said she will accommodate us come on down we have a suite for you. I little more pricey than usual , I understand. 1/2 a block away from the beach, perfect place , the la jolla cove close by, beautiful place . Thx again Olga for thanking cars of us canadiens. Will be back next time around.

My wife and I stayed at the La Jolla Travelodge with 2 kids over the 4th of July holiday.

The office staff were very kind, helpful people, and the facilities/room were functional and clean. The rates are generally a great bargain, but beware of the holiday rate increase. It was very high.

Our 2 full size beds were small for 2 adults and 2 kids, but apparently there was nothing to upgrade to.

Breakfast food consisted of non-cooked items. No worries, though. Right next door is Cafe Vahik (excellent and affordable).

The fridge worked great (smelly, though), water pressure was acceptable, room fan/ac worked fine and the pillows and beds were comfy. Parking was not a problem, even on the 4th.

The most wonderful aspect of this Travelodge is location. One can stroll to the beach in ~10 minutes. La Jolla Cove is ~1.5 miles. With a bicycle, Pacific Beach and Mission Bay are an easy destination.

Room Tip: The 2nd floor, SW corner room was quiet.

We are just 300 yards from beautiful Windansea Beach. It is an amazing beach for swimming, surfing, sunbathing or walking. Also you can relax by our outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi which is open from 9pm to 10pm all year around.
We are surrounded by many wonderful restaurants of all types. Downtown La Jolla is just a mile from us and is a great place for dining and shopping. The La Jolla Cove and Children's pool with seals are about 1.5 miles from us.
We offer a complimentary continental breakfast to our guest which includes: apples, oranges, whole and 2% milk, 2 types of cereal, assorted tea, Folgers coffee, hot chocolate, orange juice, as well as fresh bagels with cream cheese, muffins, Danish and oatmeal.
We hope to see you here again.
