We staid at the hotel for 3 days. It's a dated property that needs a up grade. The rooms and bathroom are small.although the property is kept very clean. It would be nice to add air con to room so you can shut the windows if you want. Continental breakfeast was great.

A nice place to stay, and literally just a few short steps across the street to the Challenged Athlete Foundation Triathlon. A great view from our balcony of the entire venue, as well as the ocean and Cove scenery; spectacular at sunset! At the room price, I was surprised that the rooms were not updated, especially the small bathroom; but...

Chose this hotel after trawling booking sites for a short stay in the area. Arrived early for check-in and was offered a great room with ocean-view. This is honestly the best location if you are after sunset views and close to the best restaurants. I have to commend William Hobbs for his excellent service throughout.

I chose this hotel over the one recommended by the meeting organisers because it looked both better and cheaper. The location is very nice, close to the shore (and surf) at La Jolla Cove. The view from the room was not bad, overlooking the ocean, but not nearly as nice as on the photos on booking.com. This hotel belongs to...

My husband and I stayed at La Jolla Cove Suites for 3 nights while we were in town for a wedding. There was a major mixup in our reservations that left us with duplicate reservations but this was more the fault of the booking site I used. The hotel personnel were very good about fixing the problem on their end....

Amazing view and location. Right next to La Valencia but more affordable with comparable sea views the higher up your room. View comes with noisy street and no AC. They're in a year-long heat wave so if you can't take the heat don't stay here. They offer portable AC units but I was wait listed first night, would have left...

Dear 1957Mags, thank you for taking the time to share your experience, our property is considered an iconic landmark in La Jolla, having been one of the first hotels built in the area. Our vintage feel is popular with many and normally with our temperate year round climate our portable air conditioners are rarely needed. But due to the significant...

I'm not normally a person to write a negative review but since I cannot get in contact with the manager (staff keeps saying they will have her call me), I wanted to warn others of our experience. Yes, the view is nice...but the hotel is not worth the rate they are charging for it. I wouldn't pay $60 a night...
