Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by texantimmy GREAT SERVICE!!!
Loved staying at La Jolla HIE, beach was walking distance as well as many restaurants. My only complaint was that the walk-in shower did NOT have a door to keep the water from splashing out onto the floor. Had to put towels down to soak up the water every time we would shower.
Parking was a bit of a hassle due to the construction but not to terrible. The free valet was a good compensation. Enjoyed my stay very much! would recommend this place only AFTER the construction is completed.
PLEASE fix the shower to have a door of some sort. VERY CLEAN ROOM! Was acknowledged for being a GOLD IHG member. GREAT BREAKFAST! Great location!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SeattleTraveler Excellent Location
Enjoyable stay at this property. Limited weekend breakfast staff resulting in absence of items (e.g. coffee). Location is good for restaurants in both Pacific Beach and La Jolla. Heavy traffic to get through La Jolla, but I think I still like this property better than the Indego in Del Mar, even for access to Blacks Beach. There is a major construction project just starting at this hotel, but they are trying to still be accommodating (e.g. new concrete walkway to converted guest room being used as lobby, complimentary valet parking). Within walking distance to a small (crowded) beach and to excellent La Jolla restaurants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rubducky Quaint, a block from the beach and wonderful value!
Don't let the outside facade fool you. Inside are quaint, roomy, clean comfortable rooms in a relaxed atmosphere only less than a block from the beach, shopping and the freeway. Service and breakfast complete a great value.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalgirl4205 Surprise construction-what a mess
Booked the hotel to attend a wedding - would have been nice if the 1-800 person would have told us the parking lot was under construction and half the façade of the building was missing. We would have picked a different location. A bit of a mess walking out in our wedding attire trying not to get dusty.

Despite renovations affecting the lobby and parking, we had an enjoyable stay. The location is great and the facilities and staff are very nice. I would stay here again.

Juanita was amazing and very sweet, all the staff were on their A game, the hotel not so much, deff. could use some updating and deep cleaning. Our room was very small and outdate, fridge didn't work, micro smelled , bathroom smelled and sink was leaking.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SDL21 Construction issues
We came to San Diego for our 28th Wedding Anniversary. Having never been to this area before, the hotel was very difficult to find. There was no sign on the street indicating a hotel was even there, much less open. There are construction fences everywhere. We drove by three times before realizing it was the place we were looking for. Finding the valet parking through the alleys and side streets next to the hotel was very frustrating too. When we arrived, we had asked to be near the pool, but were told since we were one of the last people to check in that night, they couldn't accommodate us. Our room keys stopped working three separate times and had to be replaced. The staff seemed to blame everything on construction. We won't be returning to this location. We'll find somewhere more friendly/responsive and with working key cards!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by R2D27117 Under Construction
This is a very old location that was under construction. We did not know that it was under construction and very difficult to enter. There was 20 yards of gravel and dirt that we had to carry and drag our bags. The room was very damp smelling with large gaps in the door to the outside. The air conditioner was located less than 3 feet from the bed and blew directly onto the bed. The overall size of the room was small and cramp. I would never return to this site and would never recommend this location.
