We stayed here in February and had a delightful time. The service at check was so kind and helpful. The room was very spacious and decorated well/ modern. The bathroom had a walk in shower which was awesome because no one likes the hotel shower curtains that try to cling to you.

The slots in the parking lot are standard size but there is overflow parking and I'm confident you'll find a way to park your truck. Also there's street parking in front the hotel on La Jolla boulevard. It is free and large vehicles like tour buses have chosen to park there before. - Guest Relations

Is the walk to the beach downhill/uphill? If so, is it very steep?
Yes, as above. Five minute walk, very gentle slope. Then if I recall right, about 5-6 steps easy steps down to the beach.
