It is like visiting family
By Betty51739
Whenever we come to the La Jolla HI we feel at home. We have stayed there at least 7 times and are looking forward to our next visit in 2016. The staff is most friendly and try to accomodate us as [More] much as possible. It would be nice for the addition to be completed by the time we go back, but if it isn't we will still feel comfortable. [Less]
AMAZING location and friendly staff
By dobbyandariel
We went on a 2 week road trip, and this hotel was the best experience we had on the whole trip! From the second we arrived, the staff was fantastic. There was an error in my booking of the room, so [More] they upgraded us to an amazing suite/larger room. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel if you want to walk to the beach and enjoy being near great restaurants in La Jolla. [Less]
Great staff. Construction mess no parking
By watsonii
Staff are by far the friendliest and consistently so.Pool and hot tub were dirty. Room is in serious need of an update and, thus, the price was not appropriate for the condition of the room. Parking [More] was tough. Had to park a few blocks away the majority of my stay. Construction is a mess so it would be fair to say that post-construction condition might prove to be an improvement. Will be returning to La Jolla in January but will not be returning to the property if construction is not completed. I would definitely return if complete, however as we (my family and I) truly enjoyed the staff and some of the other guests. I am with hope that the room we stayed in will be refurbished once the main building's construction is completed. If you are staying for one or two nights, the hotel is adequate. Again, GREAT staff. I couldn't say enough about them. Kudos to the management for hiring and keeping them happy as they were the highlight of our stay. [Less]
Good Value
By Cattlebrand
Good value and location. Nice town, walk to restuarants. [Less]
Location can't be beat, breakfast good.
By enzamatic
I chose this hotel primarily for the location and the breakfast. It gets dark by 5:30 in Nov in North County San Diego, and so it's important for me to stay somewhere that has some restaurants [More] nearby, and some places you can get outside in the morning before work. Travelling alone, I chose this location because of the easy access to the beach just south, which is also the "dog beach". It's a nice walk with some hills available, beautiful view, and a nice rock you can sit on to watch the surf, surfers, and watch the dogs play, maybe read a book. With people visiting to walk their dog in the morning there are enough people around to feel safe, and honestly dog people are usually approachable and friendly (as are the dogs hah!). It's also convenient to be able to grab some breakfast with protein before heading into the office rather than just breads [Less]
Great location in Solana Beach
By FunkyTown
We absolutely loved staying at this hotel. It appeared to be quite new and was maintained extremely well. The bed was very comfortable, the king room we had was clean and well laid out and the HVAC [More] was quiet and functioned well. The only thing I would do differently, if this were my hotel, would be to provide different balcony chairs. They were hard plastic folding chairs like is used in some classroom style meeting rooms. Something more comfortable to place on the balcony would have been appreciated. The staff was friendly and professional and every housekeeper, even those with limited English skills made an effort to speak with us and meet our needs. If we have a reason to return to the Solana Beach / Del Mar area, we will certainly stay at this hotel. [Less]
Comfortable and great stay in San Diego downtown
By gosandiego81
Great convenient location in San Diego Downtown, with excellent value for money amenities [Less]
Friendly Staff
By Mar Mc
Hotel beds not as comfortable as other Holiday Inn Express and bathrooms very small with no fan. Parking garage is ok if you have a very small car. [Less]
