What I liked the very most about the stay was the quality of staff at the restaurant in the lobby area. The service was the absolute best!!!

Better than I expected

Shared a large king bed with my buddy (so no one slept on the floor) bathroom nice and huge. Room was over all impressive in nice area in La Jolla. Bar downstairs in the lobby made it convenient to get drinks and chill by the pool and jacuzzi. Definitely recommend staying here if you're in La Jolla

Nice hotel in convenient location

Pros: Close to UCSD medical campus, Sea World, San Diego airport. Good food, nice bar, friendly staff, decent complimentary wifi.
Cons: The parking lot is small, and the pantry could use healthier breakfast options such as non-sugar cereal and granola bars, yogurt, juice, etc.
Location: This hotel isn't particularly close to tourist-y things. But it's in a good location if you are visiting UCSD medical campus.
Nice two-night stay at this hotel. They provide special touches such as ice water and coffee in the lobby, afternoon cookies, and a 24/7 food pantry in case you need something quick or early/late in the day. The staff were super friendly as well.

Get Away

Pros: location
Cons: TUMs in the mini store :)
Location: Go to the ocean and enjoy!!!
We spent the weekend to visit with family in the area. Nice and Quiet. One night there was a miss hap in the kitchen and the fire alarm went off. The staff was extremely apologetic and even sent a little note under the door apologizing. Loved the flavored water in the lobby area. Very friendly staff. No Tums in the mini store.

A great find...

How great the staff was. From front desk to breakfast/dinner, we were so well taken care of. We didn't know when we were checking out as a family member was being released from Scripps hospital and we all know how hard that is to predict. We needed an extra day and Lyndsay worked it out for us. The food was really good as well. Beds comfortable and rooms clean and large. Highly recommended!
