    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.

    ... Robeks) was fantastic and after sipping on an fabulously tasty Kale Tropicana (Kale and pineapple on crushed ice) we went back to the Edge to pick up a very happy Sid. She'd had a great yoga lesson and had really enjoyed it. On the way out it was funny to see lots of young girls from all over the country having their photo's taken in front of the dance school. It's a real mecca for dance lovers so we could understand why Sid wanted to dance there so badly. ...

    Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to the Bertozzis this morning. It was such a great visit. Jessica was so easy to be with and Lily is a dynamite kid. It was really great and really great to see Lu so happy. Ben loved being with them too and Sam and Jessica are BFFs because ...

    We spent a full day in the park visiting the rides (considerably tamer than at Universal), and the shows (very impressive). There was a choice of about 12 shows but we went for on with dolphins and acrobatics - forgot it's name, Cirque de mer and Shamu's One World. They were very impressive and the animals looked happy, although I think some of the audience members regretted ...
