Great location, friendly staff, decent breakfast

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Don't have the housekeeping staff checking rooms at 7am.
We stayed for two nights, and it was a good experience.Here are some pros/cons Pros - Included breakfast had a good selection and was pretty good food (cereal, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, waffles, bread/bagels). The hotel staff was friendly. There was plenty of parking, with spots available in front of the hotel, behind it, and in a little parking garage. Location was ideal. Walking distance to the downtown area and the viewing beach. Cons - Was a bit more expensive than planned. Was supposed to end up ~$150/night, but was actually $200/night. Parking was $12/night and it's hard to tell where the rest of the difference came from. Our shower tub was initially clogged, which was annoying, but maintenance fixed it on the second day. We got a check from the cleaning crew at 7:00 on checkout day. Granted it was our fault for not having the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, but this seemed extremely early. Overall, the place was nice and we would stay here again. All hotels in the area are expensive, so we couldn't squabble over the price difference too much.

Very close to everything

Posted Oct 3, 2014
Pros: location, cleanliness
Cons: parking can be a challenge but its downtown so you have to take that into account.
Location: Downtown LJ, the Cove, Museum.
The hotel is centrally located adjacent to downtown and the beaches. We've stayed in many hotels in La Jolla. This place is convenient, very clean, has a wonderful staff and the best we've stayed in. We will stay here again!

OK hotel, great location.WiFi horrible

Pros: Staff, and location
Cons: Facility
Location: Great shopping and close to the beach
I like the staff, but the facility is old and the breakfast is the same everyday and is not great. I could not use the internet because of bad connection. This hotel could be great hotel for its location and staff but please update!!

very friendly staff, full complimentary breakfast, close to the beaches, one block from restaurants and shops, clean, larger than average rooms with balconies. I've stayed here the past two years and will come here again.

Yes, I would return

Pros: Location - walking distance to ocean and seals!!
Cons: Upgrade some of the breakfast offerings
Location: Seal watching, beach, tours, great food selections and shopping
Our original plans were to stay at another hotel in the area but our daughter stayed there and told us to stay at this Best Western. We are so glad we stayed here and on our next trip back we will stay here again. The front desk staff was excellent !!! Housekeeping was good Complimentary breakfast was just a little less than good but more than average. There was enough variety that both of us were satisfied.

Nicest Best Western I've ever seen.

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Great location! Large clean room with balcony. Free WiFi and adequate breakfast. No odors. Restaurant next door with good brick oven pizzas will deliver. Rooms lack a safe. Parking can be difficult and worth the $12/night.

we had to cut our trip short due to family problem, the one day we spent with best western inn by the sea la jolla was great. the parking fees were a surprise but that's california! the free breakfast was appreciated - there was something for every taste. we would recommend this hotel highly.
