Good hotel good location ”

Lovely hotel in good location (close to restaurants and the seals with beautiful coastal walks). Clean hotel, quiet, comfortable beds, good blackout curtains, coffee in lobby and at pool guest lounge. Friendly helpful staff. Lovely swimming pool with comfortable loungers. We had a nice ocean view with balcony on 3rd floor. Plenty parking on site for $15/night. Will definitely stay here again if in area and would highly recommend this hotel.

Great location, Great view”

This was our first time staying in La Jolla and we couldn’t have picked a better place. We were walking distance to all shops, restaurants and even the coves. The only disclaimer is there was an extra $15 charge for parking per night that I wasn’t aware at booking but the ocean view from our room made me forget all about that. Very happy about our choice! We even left behind a cellphone and they called to let us know and mailed it out to us the same day.

Pleasantly surprised”

From the online descriptions, I expected this to be simple accommodation in the low range of 3 stars (or upper 2 stars, and I wasn't even sure it had its own shower), but it turned out to be much better. The room was spacious and clean, with a very nice bathroom and a big balcony. The whole hotel seemed well maintained, with a nice lounge/pool area, and the staff were very helpful. I brought a bike and the hotel had a hidden bike rack where I could park it safely.

The downside was we paid for $15 for parking in hotel parking lot, this did not guarantee us a space when we returned. So basically we paid for an hour worth of parking. Upside is there was plenty of parking on street

We stayed at the Inn by the Sea for three nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We had an ocean view room, totally worth the extra money!! All of the rooms have balconies. The views were amazing. The pool area was very nice, although we did not use it during our stay. This is a great location close to shopping and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful.
