This was a very pleasant 2 night stay en Route LA to San Diego late Aug 2013 for our family of 4( 2 adults, 1 x 17 year old and 1 x 12 year old).We chose the hotel for its competitive price, inclusive breakfast, and proximity to Windansea beach, and were not disappointed.
The breakfast was as described in previous posts and a good start to the day. The beach was a 5 min walk over the road and the manager lent us beach chairs and other beach equipment. The room was adjacent to the pool and had a clean Mediterranean feel to it, with a small but very pleasant pool area overlooked by the pleasant breakfast area. The cleaning staff were extremely friendly and willing to help.
The only slight negatives were a shortage of power points in the room, and a fairly helpful, but difficult to understand receptionist.
The online price booked in advance was around $160 per night, which was actually good for pricey La Jolla. It's nearest competitor is literally over the road for a very similar price but we were most pleased that we had chosen the Holiday Inn Express.
