La Jolla Inn
Travel Blogs from La Jolla
We got up early and went to lovely La Jolla today. We drove the long route there and Liz played tour guide to show me the sights of her city. The weather was awesome and we went and walked around La Jolla all afternoon, and I got tan! Yesss! We went to this lookout in a neighborhood and saw a cove below us with all these surfers. It was such a …

Then it was time for some breakfast. The Pacific Wharf bakery had croissant sandwiches and scrambled egg boules that hit the spot.
From there, we picked up FastPasses for Soaring Over California (open today, yeah!) Elodie led her ...

Then it was time to do some shopping in the Big Lego Store (along with everyone else who had saved this bit for the last minute). After dodging crowds and many debates over items, we ...

We were able to pick up 15 yards with the driver now the trick is to put it to use on the golf course. Jim then took us on a tour of the whole facility which includes club repair and construction, 3D video analysis, ball testing, club testing and the training facility. It is quite a facility.

Historical Traveler Reviews La Jolla Inn
On New Year's Eve my best friend and I booked a room at the La Jolla Inn to celebrate her birthday. I found the hotel on line at a fantastic rate considering it was New Year's eve. It's located smack dab in the heart of La Jolla, next door to the famed La Valencia Hotel. The hotel is small but ever so charming. The rooms are small also but decorated English country style with beautiful bedding. We had a small patio overlooking the cove and the Pacific Ocean. The crowning glory to this fabulous find is the deck on top of the hotel. The view is spectacular!
Loved this La Jolla hotel!
We absolutely loved this hotel! The staff was the friendliest we've ever seen. This hotel had the best location in La Jolla and for a quarter of the price of it's neighbors. We will definately recommend this hotel to our friends and family!
Terrible accomodations at the La Jolla Inn
I originally found the La Jolla Inn on Hotels. The pictures were beautiful and the accomodations looked great. As it was a last minute reservation, I had to prepay the room with no refund available. When my sister and her guest arrived, as I was meeting her the next day, her guest wouldn't even stay there. It was dirty and there was so much traffic noise that we could not sleep. I made a complaint to the front desk and she told me they would make a credit to my bill. I wanted to check out that night. The next day, the clerk told me the owner decided not to give me any credit, that I complained too late. Very poor service and broken promises. Do not stay here. Very small rooms
Great place- very friendly staff!
we loved having breakfast brought up to the room, which had an excellent view and was very comfortable. the staff was very friendly and the inn is in an excellent location. there is also a great little restaurant right across the street. who cares where the car is when everything you need is a short walk away!
Money for a View
The La Jolla Inn is in a perfect location of the village and the view was absolutely phenomenal. (You obviously are paying for that) The hotel on the other hand had a few problems....parking was 3 blocks away and underground, found a broken alarm clock upon arrival, curtain rod fell down while ironing, continental breakfast (1 croissant with a juice only), denied the AAA discount and was told they did not accept it, however found 3 websites stating they did. The room was extremely small, bathroom was even smaller and the towels are so thin and rough that they scratched your skin. When mentioning my concerns to the staff, we received an "I'm sorry"....it will be $1008!!!!!!!!!!! Do not recommend this hotel unless you want a very expensive view of the Pacific Blue!
Very happy with our stay at la jolla inn...
stayed at the la jolla inn last week...room was somewhat small but comfortable...location was one block from the beach, and as close as you can get to the main shopping, galleries, etc of la jolla. only complaints, and they really were minor, were 1, the street is quite noisy (though the ocean view makes up for it) and 2, the parking is 2 blocks away...we really didn't mind the parking as we walked everywhere and didn't use our car much during our stay, but for some folks this might be a problem. the continental breakfast was sparse but adequate, served on either thier sun porch or on your private deck. stafff very nice. overall were happy with our stay there, and would stay there again.
A room with a european feeling and a very friendly staff
My wife and I just returned from staying at this wonderful, small hotel (6/29/03). The hotel was right in the heart of the La Jolla's shopping and wonderful restaurants and the beach is a couple blocks away. Our room had a view of the ocean and a ocean fresh breeze. The room was very clean and furnished very colorfully. The staff always was very friendly and offered advice on where to go for dinners and sites. Every morning, we went for the 2.4 mile walk along the beach for exercise. We were very satisfied with this small hotel and would recommend it to anyone. At night, the sounds of the evening crowd came thru our open slider but did not disturb our sleep on the very comfortable bed.
The front desk staff sold us. We had originally checked in and out of a waterfront dump of a hotel and completely by accident wound up calling this hotel re: vacancies. Katie and Lorraine were so wonderful and made us comfortable with our choice to stay. The rooms are small but nicely furnished. AM breakfast in the room or on the sundeck. Afternoon beverages and snack in the lobby. Helpful desk staff - restaurant recommendations were superb. Convenience store off of lobby. Good location, beautiful view of ocean but a little noisy when the bars let out and the trash gets picked up. No screen on slider but could have opted to turn on AC if we had wanted. Parking is a walk but not a big deal for us. After what we saw in the room we had at a beach front hotel - CLEAN was more important than anything.
Hated the La Jolla Inn
Visited here in August of 2002 and we were extremely disappointed. Very noisy with public bathrooms across the street in use all night long. Very poor service from employees, poor parking, and very poorly designed bathrooms with windows next to the walkways that offer no privacy. We had to tape newspapers over the window for privacy. Save your money, go to mission bay.
Very Enjoyable Stay
We spent five days over the Christmas 2002 holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Inn has a great location in the middle of the Village. Rooms are small but have been recently reworked and have new furnishings. Most rooms have a view of the ocean and Scripps Park. The desk staff is available 24 hours and was very helpful. The only drawback is the free parking is three blocks away in the basement of the Hard Rock Cafe.
