I assume our mistake has been corrected. Sorry to see that a billing mistake on our part left your overall experience so negative as to result in a 1 out of five rating. I hope you give us another opportunity the next time your travels bring you back to beautiful La Jolla Village...

4 out of 5

Great Hotel in LaJolla

Pros: Clean, great location, very comfortable
Cons: WiFi not always great I feel parking should be included and not an extra charge
Location: LaJolla Cove, the beaches, restaurants and so many activities
From the moment I arrived, everything was ideal. A late checkin and a late checkout, all accommodated perfectly. The room was comfortable and clean and the coffee provided was good quality. I couldn't recommend The Inn by the Sea more highly.

Excellent Choice in the Heart of La Jolla

Pros: Location and facility
Cons: no
Location: You're in La Jolla!!!
The hotel is an excellent value (I'm a true "road warrior"). Everything has been refreshed and rehabed. The staff is very nice and you are a couple of blocks from the ocean and in the heart of La Jolla without costing too much. Highly recommended.

Great village location

The hotel was great for what we needed! Super close to all of the downtown pubs and restaurants and walking distance to all beaches. The one thing I would have improved was the shower. It was like being on a rollercoaster of temperatures, very cold to hot hot hot and back.

Great Location

Cons: The beds were like rocks.
The hotel was convenient to coffee shops, restaurants and the main part of town. The best feature was the nearness of the beaches and coves. It was only a few short blocks to coves, tide pools, seal rocks and a pier, the most scenic parts of La Jolla. Going was easy. Coming back was uphill. Each room had a balcony. The higher rooms could probably see water. A major drawback for me was the bed. It was way too hard for me. I even considered cancelling the second night's stay. Otherwise, the room was pleasant with a refrigerator.

Extra charges for a non-roll-in shower!

Pros: Its prime location andnice staff
Cons: Lack of accommodation for the physically disabled.
Location: Wonderful views if you walk 1,000 feet. The balcony windows, for which there is a premium charge, look across at a large office building with street n
We called to arrange for a "roll-in" handi-capable shower. This is usually no problem for a largege hotel like "The inn aty La Jola." The desk said that there would be an additional $40.00 charge. We do not like this practice, but agreed for expediency's sake. When we arrived we found that the shower was a regular bath. They dropped the $40 but we had a shower that I couldn't use. The hotel is going through minor remodelling with torn up carpeting and tiles. The staff was pleasant, but couldn't deal with a blown out circuit breaker for or television. There was no breakfast as advertised nor were the food dispensing machines operating.Ironically, in a town with many retired military, the Inn at La Jolla doesn't do much to accommodate the physically disabledf.

Wonderful Place to Stay

Location: Shopping, coast walk, seals, the Cove, lots of great restaurants, all within a couple blocks.
Comfortable place to stay. Friendly staff. Next to downtown shops. Easy walk to the Cove and coast walk. We arrived in the middle of the night and our refrigerator didn't work and the night manager immediately upgraded us to a bigger room even though we were happy to wait until the next morning to get it fixed. We would definitely stay again. The continental breakfast was poor. Just coffee. No pastries, cereal, muffins, juice. Just coffee. Odd for a moderately expensive hotel. Excellent iced coffee and apples available later in the afternoon however. Parking was a bit high, $12 a day. Should have been complimentary in my opinion.
