Every interaction with staff at this hotel from making the reservation, calling with questions, helping during our stay was fantastic, over the top great! The hotel is so cute. We had a great view of the pool and ocean during our stay and saw some beautiful sunsets. The hotel is also located walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. I walked to Starbucks every morning. We walked to all the restaurants we went to during out stay. La Jolla Cove is just down the street. The valet is quick. The front desk is super responsive. We received a text each morning asking if we wanted housekeeping, also asked us about breakfast. Dillon was great! The only reason I didn't rate the hotel 5 stars is the very thin walls. Every night of our three night stay we had very loud neighbors. Kids running and crying the first two nights. The third night someone had their TV on loud until past midnight. I woke up at 3:45am to the TV again. Maybe the hotel could move the TV to a different spot?? I called the front desk each time and they responded quickly. I would stay here again because we loved everything else. I would just bring earplugs.

Dear Excursion161741: On behalf of my entire staff, thank you very much for the kind words you shared about your recent stay with us, especially the service you received from our team. It is our number one priority to ensure that all of our guests leave with lasting, positive memories and it sounds like we did just that for you. I am, however, sorry about the noise issues you experienced and I hope you will give us another opportunity in the future. I am confident we can find you a much quieter room that isn't next to traveling families. Until then, I appreciate very much you sharing your feedback. Sincerely, Terrence Underwood, General Manager

Definitely eat at Nine-Ten. Nice loungers around pool to relax
All shops and restaurants of La Jolla village are blocks away.
Easy drive to Torrey Pines national park,La Jolla shores and beaches.
Would definitely stay here again!

Great hotel, amazing location in the heart of downtown La Jolla.
Be aware that when booking your room you ask about the cost of the room for each night, additional fees, including a “resort fee”, parking fees, etc. we would have liked the full picture before receiving our check out surprises. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and milestone birthday.

Dear Lisak56: As they say, "location, location, location"! And indeed ours is the best, walking distance to the very best of what La Jolla is so famous for...shopping, dining, entertainment and miles of wonderful beaches. Glad you enjoyed it so much. But I am sorry that we did not do a good enough job of letting you know about the other fees. We do include the information in our confirmation letters but I will ensure our reservations team is also detailing this during their phone reservation calls. I do hope you will give us another opportunity, whether that be for another special occasion or just a little getaway. Sincerely, Terrence Underwood, General Manager

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Feels welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable and the atmosphere in good. The location is the best, you have the sea, restaurants and shops within walking distance.

I was recommended by a relative about this hotel. It didn’t disappoint. The room was beautiful and big. I had a nice ocean view. The staff were super friendly and informative. The location is perfect. Walk to all the shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay at this location again when in LaJolla.
