The usual roof-top breakfast not provided

Supportive and friendly staff. Extra paid for small balcony with ocean view. Discovered balcony sliding door to room did not lock, and balcony easily accessible by adjacent room's balcony. Noisy intersection with remote parking.

Stay elsewhere! Not here!

Positives: Great location, friendly employees, clean. Negatives: Everything else! Air conditioner didn't work. Tv turned on, but cable was not connected, thus could only watch static with "no signal" message. If you only want to sleep, perhaps shower, but make sure to bring your own toiletries as none are provided, then consider staying here. For me I'll pay more and stay elsewhere!

Great experience.

Inn does not provide meals. Great experience. Enjoyed convenient location. Close to beach, shops and restaurants.

Anniversary in La Jolla

4.2 on August 29, 2014

We celebrated our 34th anniversary at La Jolla Inn. The location was perfect; we could walk to everything- shopping, dining and the cove. For a 24 hour vacation, it was perfect.

Amazing location; great deal in La Jolla!

My mom and I stayed here in a room with a balcony; the beds were comfy and the view from the sundeck was great for breakfast! The only thing was the rooms were a bit small; asked for a cot the second night and it hardly fit. We also thought it was weird how they charge a lot of money for anything you might need (ie. a toothbrush, bottle of water). The parking was not as serious of an issue as everyone made it out to be; we actually only used their parking for one night because there were so many open spaces on the street next to hotel leading down to the ocean. Thanks for a great stay! Definitely book on BedandBreakfast for the best deal!!!

Location is perfect and service was great

I walked out my room door and I was immediately outside and 100 yds from Ocean. I chose the cheaper room with outside entries, but I preferred it. They served a continental breakfast in my room or on the sundeck. I chose the sundeck and the breakfast would be brought to me within 10 minutes. The sundeck was clean and has great ocean view. The hotel is in the heart of La Jolla and so all restaurants and shops are within walking distance. For the downside, some people look for valet services, but don't stay here if that is what you are looking for because you have to unload your own luggage and park your own car a block away. Hotels with valet services are right next door with $100 or more added cost.This is not a B&B, but the front desk staff was friendly and helpful and was open 6am - midnight. This hotel is for LOCATION and good price and clean bed to sleep in.

We stayed one night in beautiful La Jolla. This property has ocean view rooms, is clean, and at a great location. I recommend it.

The Gem of La Jolla

4.2 on September 11, 2011

The La Jolla Inn is an exceptional value; clean, bright, and friendly; we were able to view and hear the ocean; and it is in the heart of La Jolla with many places to choose from to eat, walk, and play.

All the reviews are accurate. This is a small hotel next to the majestic La Valencia with OK service and amenities. The bad: 1) towels are incredibly rough and cheap. This is an easy fix- no idea why they haven't upgraded the towels; 2) there is a slight musty smell. 3) the complimentary breakfast is Costco quality pastries and OJ from concentrate. 4) there is no B&B feel here. 5) in hindsight I would book directly with properties listed here because when I booked my room, La Jolla Inn called to say they did not have availability, and then again a couple hours later to say they had a cancellation. But I knew all of this going in from other reviews, so if all you care about is a good location by the beach with $5 parking, this place fits the bill. Skip the plastic wrapped muffins and head to the Cottage on Fay and Kline for breakfast. They serve dinner in the summer too, except Sundays. Sign-up for their newsletter a few days before your trip and get a 20% off coupon.

Just okay for the price

For $200 a room (even in the off season) I expected much better necessities. The towels were of Motel 6 quality, and the breakfast was passable. I didn't expect to have to go to Starbbucks for coffee at a B&B. They expected you to drink the trash coffee they offer with the cheap machine in the room complete with the coffee grinds in the packet, excuse me! This is not really a B&B but a hotel that offers breakfast. But the location for the price was fine. Would I go again, not really. I would choose a hotel/motel and pay for my breakfast. The free parking was a nice benefit. I would give this a tad under 3 stars for the whole experience of 2 nights.
