Location is wonderful, and so is the staff

Posted Sep 21, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: the layout of the suite was strange (very long and linear)
Location: everything la jolla beach related
we visited during one of the recent brutally hot periods, so the lack of AC was a big issue, but this was true for most of the san diego area. The staff was helpful and friendly, and the outdoor pool was wonderful

Older hotel, great views

Posted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: Views, balconies, large rooms with kitchenette.
Cons: Customer service, their internal communication with each other, bathrooms.
Location: Beautiful La Jolla Cove, lots of great shopping and wonderful restaurants.
This hotel is older and it shows - so if you are wanting or expecting a high-end, newly renovated hotel - this is not it. However, this hotel has good value - lots of great views, rooms are clean, comfortable, and good size, and you are very close to great shopping and wonderful restaurants too. Rooms include a small kitchen with refrigerator and stove and some have microwaves. Bathrooms are small, not luxurious by any means. The rooftop is open during most days and evenings (except when they have a wedding) and there is a continental breakfast served. Views are beautiful up there. There are a lot of stairs on the property - stairs leading to the pool and jacuzzi - no elevator to get to those. Older or disabled people may have a hard time getting around this property. Customer service at this hotel is mediocre - not horrible but definitely room for improvement. The hotel can be noisy at night with rooftop parties.

La Jolla Cove Suites Hotel

Posted Sep 10, 2014
Pros: I loved the location and the view of the ocean. I also loved eating breakfast on the roof with the great view.
Cons: I think the hotel just needs to update the rooms a little. However, our room was quite large and had a kitchen and living room.
Location: The location was great! Beautifull view of the ocean, park and the cove. Several shops and restaurants within walking distance.
The hotel is older, but the location and view are great! The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was quite large, and the beds were very comfortable. The view of the ocean from our balcony was wonderful. The shopping was great, too. You can walk to all of the many shops, restaurants and businesses in the area. We loved having the park right in front of the hotel and the cove next to it. I would recommend this hotel, and will be going back for another stay!

All staff members were friendly and helpful.

Posted Aug 30, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness, friendly staff, wonderful breakfast that is more than just a continental type. Coffee is always available throughout the day.
Cons: I cannot think of a thing.
Location: Handy stairs up to town, or you can walk around a different way. No need to ever move the car if you are able to walk.
My daughter and I had reserved separate rooms due to my snoring. Mine was to be on the ocean, hers in the back. Her room was ready when we arrived extra early. There appeared to be some sort of mix up, as we didn't get into my room until nearly an hour after check in time. I was upgraded to a suite type room which was unexpected, but well worth the inconvenience of a late occupancy. They were very apologetic about the problem. The end result was well worth it. Being right on the water, the hotel is so convenient to town and anywhere we wished to go. My daughter already plans to go back for her anniversary and I have already talked a friend into going for her birthday celebration. It is a lovely place to spend a relaxing few days.

Nice Hotel in a good location.

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The location, the view of the ocean and the breakfast spot on the roof.
The breakfast spot on the roof was lovely in the morning. The main bed was very comfortable. The fold out couch was a little tired, although the couch was fine when folded up. We loved the walks along the shore right outside the door and the easy access to restaurants, shopping and the museum.

note what we expected once we arrived....

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: breakfast
Cons: parking
Location: the walkway across the street was nice...with the sea lions and birds, etc....put once again parking was awful....
not what we expected....had to pay for parking....our truck could not enter the under tunnel to get to parking....rooms were very small....and for a handicap individual...bathrooms were way too small.....noisy...you could hear every door opening at 3 a.m. and people coming and going all night.... we had asked for a king size, we received a queen size... breakfast was very nice on the 5th floor...with the outside deck you could sit and eat....and breakfast was very well prepared...

Ocean view

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: Ocean view
Cons: Maid service, breakfast, update rooms
Location: Across from small beach. Restaurants within walking distance
The only good thing was we had an ocean view from our room. Staff was friendly but our reservation was for 5 and we had a 2 bedroom suite and we only had enough towels for 3 people. We asked the maid on our 2nd day to leave extra towels but again she only left 3 so everyday we were going down to the front desk to ask for more towels. Hotel was old and in need of updates. Felt the price was high for the condition of the rooms. Free breakfast came with the room but was not appealing.

Horrible Hide-A-Bed

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Location is great and the staff is friendly, but the manager failed twice to follow-up on a problem with the hide-a-bed mattress. It was old and extremely uncomfortable.

Great location - expect noise

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Your room location will make a difference - ocean front is great but noisy, and can be smelly depending on the wind direction - and a bit pointless if you are on the ground floor like we were. The pool is great, the location is great, the staff is awesome.
