Urban Boutique Hotel

"Right in the middle of everything!"
The hotel is NOT fancy, at all. But it is clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I WILL stay there again when I go back to San Diego. It is in the middle of Little Italy. One block away there are so many awesome restaurants that there is no way you can try them all without spending a month there! The hotel rents bicycles for $10 A DAY! Every Saturday there is a fantastic farmer's market, just down the street. The breakfast is simple, but good: fresh fruit, yogurt, mini muffins, croissants, breads & granola. The only drawback is the construction right next door. And by right next door, I mean right outside my window - so from my side of the hotel there is zero view. They start work every morning at 7:00 a.m. BUT - the positive aspect of that - it got me up and out to do my sightseeing in a timely manner. :-) I did not go on my vacation to sleep! It is well within walking distance to any and all of the transit stops that you need to get everywhere, including Tijuana. Again - not fancy. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your place. But if you are looking for a good place to lay your head at night, that is close to everything, this is the place you want to stay.

"Lovely hotel with helpful staff "
We stayed in 3 different hotels in San Diego during our holiday and this was the best. We really like the location in the middle of the mariner but close still to the city. Access to some great and well priced seafood restaurants. The staff were also very helpful and accommodating which made our stay even better. I would definitely stay again.

La Jolla Shores Hotel

8110 Camino Del Oro, La Jolla 92037 - Map
"Great location. Only a few steps from the beach. "
Overall this hotel was nice. The location made all the difference and a rental car isn't necessary. The rooms were clean however they need to replace mattresses as they are worn down and not too comfortable. The pillows are feather (if you like that kind you'll love them) but they were somewhat of a nuisance to try to sleep on. All the staff were great and friendly but on two occasions we were shorted cash on our change from the bill. It was only a few dollars but that doesn't make it ok and on TWO occasions none the less.

"Not good for you if you would like to sleep"
The hotel is a lot of fun. A lot of events and parties are organized here and is very suitable for young people (21 - 45 years of age). However if you would hope that you will have a good night sleep, please choose a different hotel. Visitors in this hotel like to party and the hotel isn't very good at enforcing quite time after 10 pm. This is especially a problem if you are with little children. The pool is a lot of fun, they have good complimentary coffee in the morning until 9 am and a common microwave. There complimentary ice 24/7. Also be aware there is a parking fee ($12, but the have underground parking, which is a plus) and also room tax... so at the end the Expedia deal doesn't sound so great.

La Pensione Hotel

Room small, no closet, no iron, refrigerator didn't cool, tv kept shutting off, front desk not very friendly. Would not be ideal for more than one person. Too bad no restaurant or lounge in house. No real entertainment around in the area that I found, not sure why so popular other than being around Italian restaurants. Walking distance to Port of San Diego.

There is no AC in the room, so on warm days your door is open to the ocean breezes. Rooms are smallish, but you are really just sleeping in there. Area eateries are pricey, so be sure to bring extra bank.
