Great location and comfortable. Had a minor plumbing problem but management responded to it well and put me in a different room with no hesitation.

Great hotel and location
We picked this hotel because of the great location. We stayed here about 4 years ago and since then the rooms have been remodeled. They are very nice and clean. Location is literally a block from La Jolla Shores beach, shops, and restaurants, which worked well once you find parking, you don't have to move. The full kitchen allowed us to make our own breakfast and store leftovers. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. We also want to make sure the woman that cleaned our room before we checked in is recognized. She was very sweet and did an emaculant job cleaning. Only reason I did not rate this the full stars is the no a/c and they ran out of parking spaces so we had to find parking in street. They are clear on their website that there is no a/c but with us 3 girls we found the location and apartment like room out weighed that. We were also able to find street parking each time we left so the fact they were out of spaces was fine and saved us some money. I highly recommend and we will be back in the future for our girl trips!

This property is a mix of apartment rentals and hotel rentals. Which means you get a small apartment for the price of a hotel room. The property is clean, quiet and well maintained. The location is great, close to Avenida de la Playa, the main retail area for La Jolla shores, the beach and the coast walk. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. Some rooms have a view of the ocean, ours did not, however we spent very little time in the room so it did not matter to us.
