      Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Inn by the Sea La Jolla

      Great stay

      from

      My husband, son and I just spent 4 nights at the Best Western Inn by the Sea and had a wonderful stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff very courteous and the location is unbeatable for the price. We walked to the beach and Cove and the eating establishments (like the Spot) were all nearby. I would stay there again and highly recommend it.

      Great stay at 1/2 of the price of a LaJolla Luxury Hotel

      from

      I recently stayed at the Best Western Inn by the Sea and had a wonderful stay, at a price 1/2 that of the most expensive hotel in the village. The location was great and just a few blocks from the ocean. I will definately come back.

      Very Nice Stay

      from

      My boyfriend and I stayed here last October for 3 nights. This hotel is a great value and the location is wonderful. It was very clean and the staff was very helpful when I locked myself out of the room. We will definitely stay there again on a return trip.

      Enjoyed it

      from

      We enjoyed our week stay in June of 2004. The room wasn't overly big, but it was clean, the rate was good, the staff was friendly, and you can't beat the location!! Close to beach, shops, restaurants. It was a nice, quiet location - would definitely stay there again!!

      Great room for the price.

      from

      We came to stay in this hotel after initially checking into another one a few minutes away that we were very disappointed in. We loved the fact that it's right next to IHOP and the little shopping district of La Jolla and the beach. It's a very quiet location. The room rate was great at it was no more than the rate we payed at the other hotel we left. We loved the proximity to the children's beach and tidepool. There are many very good restaurants in walking distance from the hotel. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, the pool was clean and relatively warm. We have children so we've become less spoiled than we used to be so this would not be a room for someone who is looking to spend much time there. It worked for us as a family and we would go back again.

      Adequate hotel in beautiful La Jolla

      from

      We stayed at the Inn by the Sea for 2 nights in October 2003 ($149/night w/bfst). It's an adequate place to rest your head. The hotel looks worn and in need of a remodel/renovation (inside and out) - especially the elevators. The lobby is cluttered and cramped, but the staff is nice. We had a large room with a balcony overlooking the parking lot. It was quiet and did the job. La Jolla is such a great town, we didn't spend much time in our room, anyway. No real complaints, "you get what you pay for" and in La Jolla $149 wasn't bad.

      We'd stay again.

      Average Hotel

      from

      I stayed at this property for a weekend back in January/February 2003.

      The front desk was adquately cordial but the rooms were very basic as I expected for a Holiday Inn. I did not spend much time in my room so that was okay, but if you want the whole package consider a finer hotel. Even still, most of the finer area hotels have received horrible reviews. Good luck.

      Over priced and Over rated

      from

      I had booked this hotel from London and was already surprised by the price, but thought at least it will be one of the better Best Westerns.

      It's name "Inn by the Sea" certainly made it sound like it would at least be in a good location. I think "Inn by the Car Park" would actually have been much a much better name. The rooms had that nasty musty smell that lower quality hotels often have, and to be honest, it wasnt' that clean, which is at least the minimum you expect. Generally the hotel had a run down feel and apart from the manager, the staff were NOT very helpful or pleasant. The breakfast was an absolute disgrace. At $129 per night I expect alot more.

      Great Place!

      from

      Good place to stay in La Jolla. The Beach is only a short walk and Hard Rock is right across the street. Hotel itself was very quite, however there was a bunch of street noise in the middle of the night when the bars closed. We requested a "city view" room because it was $40/night less than the price of an "ocean view" and were pleasantly surprised to be complimentary upgraded to an ocean view upon our arrival. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

      Great Staff, nice rooms

      from

      Extremely nice and accomodating staff, clean rooms. After being forced to leave or original hotel the night before our wedding we called the Inn By the Sea to see if there were rooms available. They were extremely accomodating, found us a nice room and matched the price of our room in Hotel Circle. The room was well appointed and we could see the Sea from our balcony. This is the second time that I have stayed here and I highly reccommend it. Maybe not luxurious but an excellent place to stay 2 block from the beach in La Jolla.

A good decision as it turned out to be lovely, Pete had asparagus chicken which was asparagus wrapped in chicken in a spicy brown sauce, Jayne had orange chicken which was tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful as we have found in most places we have been.

      Back to the hotel to finish packing ready for the morning.

      Returned to one of our favorite parks, where we can stay for half price using our Passport America membership. So much to do here in San Diego...and we covered a lot of it! We rented a sailboat and sailed on Mission Bay, we took a Whale Watching Cruise and saw LOTS of dolphins AND a humpback whale, we enjoyed relaxing by the ocean's shore. Tons of pictures to post - later!

      We awoke early for disembarking and our dash to the airport. The scheduler had not assigned us to the earliest group and we had some worries about making our flight. I had tried for two days to get the group changed, but to no avail. So i took matters into my own hands and simply made Bruce sit in a wheelchair and pushed him off the ship. We gathered our luggage and grabbed a ...
