Great Location

Posted Nov 21, 2017
Pros: The location and the view of the beach. The pricing was OK for the funkiness of the place.
Cons: The shower temperature would change depending on the neighboring room’s usage.
Location: Beautiful location on the waterfront and plenty of shops and food within walking distance in the village nearby.
Even though the hotel is old construction and a bit worn around the edges, the room was large and comfortable and was in a wonderful location. Not fancy, but I would stay here again.

Good location, not enough parking for guests (we paid to park and had to park in the street). Our room was tiny and completely dated but the staff was amazing and upgraded our room for us. Would come back solely for the friendly and accommodating staff.

Great location

Posted Nov 6, 2017
Pros: Location and views. Breakfast on the roof terrace.
Cons: Main part of hotel is in desperate need of upgrading
Location: Excellent location. Close to shops & restaurants. Beautiful walks along the coastline.
This hotel is in a great location & the views from the rooftop terrace were spectacular. Breakfast on the terrace was great and the staff were welcoming and helpful. The main part of the hotel is very tired and in need if of upgrading. However, thankfully we were in a room in the new annex which was great. The room was huge & tastefully decorated. The shower room was fabulous & the room also had a kitchen area which would have been great, however there was no crockery or utensils of any kind. Also there was no safe.

Great location, hotel needs work

Posted Nov 1, 2017
Chose the location because of how close it was to the beach. Room needs improvement (carpet peeling up, no central air, wifi wouldn't work in the room, etc.). Beds and pillows were not comfortable and resulted in very little sleep.

Full Kitchen was not true

Posted Oct 26, 2017
Pros: The location and the scenery.
Cons: Either offer a full kitchen or stop advertising that the rooms come with a full kitchen.
Location: This is the closest place to the famous Cove, lots of restaurants within walking distance.
I had stayed at this hotel a few times in the past and each time the room had a cook-top, fridge, microwave, cups, plates, cutlery etc. and that's what I call a full kitchen. This time I stayed in a one bedroom suite and it only had a microwave and a coffee maker. When I told the girl at the front desk that my room did not come with a full kitchen...she said they did some changes to the rooms and other than the microwave and coffee maker they could give a fridge to the guests ONLY if they ask for it. Then, I asked for a fridge, she said she would call the maintenance man and send one to my room. In a few minutes I got a call in my room from the front desk saying that they were totally out of fridges. If all the rooms are like the one I stayed, "full kitchen" is a false advertisement!

Beautiful view from the La Jolla Cove hotel

Posted Oct 26, 2017
Beautiful view from the La Jolla Cove hotel. I was upgraded to a two bedroom suite with air conditioning. I had a beautiful ocean view. In room 201 was lovely and newly refreshed. Carissa the front staff manager was fabulous.
