This hotel is very quaint and cozy with a kind and attentive staff. Highly reccommend to anyone travieling to La jolla for pleasure or staying close to the UCSD Medical services.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Craigs Close to Beach
We have never been to San Diego before and we were very comfortable at this Holiday Inn. The staff are very helpful and attentive anything we asked for was looked after right away. It is a close walk down to the beautiful local surfers beach. The only thing missing that would make this Hotel 100% perfect would be an onsite Lounge with beverages and appetizers or a small restaurant.
I would recommend this location to friends and family for sure.

The hotel's construction was never a problem, we were there for the weekend. Car valets and front office were quick to respond in getting our car for us. Staff was wonderful and responsive to inquiries. Being close to the beach is a big bonus.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by george8888 Maybe should found another hotel...
The location was good - walking distance to the beach, but the hotel was undergoing a parking lot remodeling which I can possibly work with. But the room cleanliness was poor. And the breakfast choice was fair.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NVAMom Great stay!
We really enjoyed our stay at the HIE at La Jolla despite the construction. The complimentary valet parking was a big plus, especially with two kids and a grandma in tow. Staff was super helpful with loaning us a beach umbrella. The only thing that was amiss was the suite we had did not have any pots/pans/cutlery/dish soap so we could cook, being that it was a kitchenette suite. Although the staff did manage to find us a cooking pan.

Without fail we have found the staff to be courteous even during times of construction. The rooms are comfortable and the pool with its heated hot tub is readily available.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brodydoodle Awesome place to stay
I was very impressed with this facility. The tropical plants and architecture was so impressive when we walked into the pool area. It is a bit of a retro hotel that stole my heart immediately. The cleanliness could not have been more superb and the pool area was beautifully kept and a very nice place to sit and have breakfast or wine and cheese in the evening. It was quiet for sleep, the staff was very friendly and i would definitely stay here again when visiting LaJolla. It was 2 blocks from the beach which made it even more appealing. I certainly would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Nightmare for visiting San Diego several days.
After La Jolla experience with the lack of sleep, I could not do anything. I just needed to sleep. I could not enjoy my trip. I felt wasting money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tyson 4 Great Service
The grounds and pool area was outstanding. Enjoyed sitting outside at night by the breakfast area and having a good cup of coffee provided by the night staff. The rooms had just been remodeled and that also made are stay in La Jolla a great get away . The location was close to the beach area but far enough away from the main part of La Jolla for a good night sleep.

This hotel is under going a remodel - The staff is attentive and it appears the construction project is progressing. Even the construction crew is considerate.
This hotel will be better than ever once the remodel job is completed.
The Breakfast in the morning is better than anticipated, Great selection of breakfast items.

Nice Hotel Very Good Location 1 block from the beach.
Friendly Staff, we were able to check in early. That is always a bonus. Parking is limited. Valet available.
Lot is actually across the street. That is actually close by. So it's not a problem as long as you know. Morning breakfast is provided. Big area well maintained, but selection is limited. It's great for a grab

Great Caring Staff. Nice Pool. Very convenient. Sure you can may more and maybe get some elegant fixtures and furnishings around town. But I was with the kids and this hotel exceeded our family's needs and was very convenient. Being that the management is so nice...I have already been back once since writing this and will be back again.

We were warmly greeted when we arrived by the gentleman at the front desk. It made up a little for the major construction they had going on. Although it was an eyesore, no one was ever in our way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ashleyyyyy Comfortable bed and amazing location!
The windansea beach across the street was so clean and beautiful. Loved how close the hotel was to the beach and food. Very comfortable bed, appreciated the blackout shades and cold AC. Frustrating that the parking lot was under construction and my car got keyed even though it was parked in the first spot near where the valet guy sits.

My family and I enjoyed our stay especially only walking distance to the beach. We plan to stay there again in the near future. La Jolla is a beautiful and very clean city, enjoyed walking around the area, We felt very safe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cathy1984 Very enjoyable experience
We are very pleased of our recent stay in this hotel.
We stayed there during one week. Staff was very friendly: David and Lamie at the Front Desk, Rami for Breakfast and all the Housekeeping and Maintenance. At the beginning our room was too noisy but we could change for a quiter room. The first outside appearance of the hotel was not great upon our arrival as there is one aisle under construction but the management is trying to give a better service with a complimentary valet parking. (Usual parking is out of order as well as the lobby);
The pool is very nice and complimentary breakfast is excellent.
We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Bake A Place of Quality
The La Jolla Holiday Inn Express pampered us, took care of our needs and made us feel at home. The construction going on directly behind out room was barely noticeable. The hotel is older and that works to it's advantage. The rooms are bigger and the rooms feel better constructed with quality ceiling fans and real closets. My only complaints are typical of all Holiday Inn Expresses in that they need to ditch the food and go back to a true Continental breakfast and put a few more towels in the pool area. Thank you for a great stay HI Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by barbara44 Not a great place
The room was dark and dank. The only lighting were two small bedside lamps for the entire bedroom. The bathroom lights were also inadequate with no space for toiletries. The air conditioner ran noisily all night with no perceptible cooling occurring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luke45056 Perfect for family trip
The hotel is not easy to find, since the the construction in the front and parking lot, however, the guest parking sign is easy to see. The staff is friendly and patient enough,even though we got there almost midnight, and had trouble find the gate to the hotel. The complementary upgrade is nice and the suite is spacious. Unfortunately, the TV is kinda small considering the distance to the bed. And again, the suite is perfect for family with little kids.The bathroom is also spacious, but it is shower only. Maybe it is not necessary to take a bath since the beach is just 2 minutes walk from the hotel. The breakfast is nice and the great room is open all day, and next to the swimming pool. which I feel is very pleasant. Overall, my mom likes it very much.
