      Historical Traveler Reviews La Jolla Cove Suites

      Step out of the room and look where you are!


      Although the rooms may be less than stellar, this is an extremely friendly and accomodating hotel. Unbeatable location for scenic beauty and recreational opportunities. Best snorkling in La Jolla is just across the street! Rooftop pool, spa, and putting green! I'll always come back.

      What a dump!!


      We stayed one night at La Jolla Cove Suites and were very disappointed. We rented a terrace cottage two bedroom suite for a reduced rate of $400.00 a night. I would maybe pay that for a month! The carpets were dirty, the linoleum in the bathrooms and the kitchen was peeling and brown, everything was dingy and awful! We couldn't believe it. We went and stayed a Hotel del Coronado the next four nights and it was like going from hell to heaven. THe web sight and the brochures are very misleading. Stay very far away from this hotel!

      Lovely place to stay, well maintained, great location !


      This is great weekend retreat place. We took

      a studio suite for the weekend. The suite was very

      well maintained and clean, including the kitchen.

      We had a superb view of the pacific from our room

      and balcony and so we spent a lot of time in the room itself. The location is unbeatable, right at the La Jolla cove and walking to all restaurants and shops. Staff is polite and helpful.

      I am honestly surprised to see so many negative reviews from others.

      What a bad surprise


      I honestly do not understand the positive reviews on this hotel, maybe it is because they have some remodeled rooms which are nice. Paying $300 a night for a Suite we expected a first class Hotel. ( Ever wondered why you cannot see the rooms on their web page ) This " Suite " we stayed in had the wallpaper coming off the walls, a tiny very cheap material kitchen, plastic walls in the bathroom, a boxspring and matress for bed. Just everyhting was extremly cheap, old and horrible. Moldy smell to the room and elevators, rusty balconies. If you opened the door it would block the corridor and you could not walk by. The only positive comment is about the stunning view and friendly reception, but I would recommend everyone to choose a different place to stay. It was truly shocking to us and we will not come back. This Hotel needs to be remodeled 100%-urgently!!!

      Much better than expected


      Arrived with some trepidations, given the earlier reviews we'd read. However, from the moment of our welcome by a very friendly, polite and helpful staff, we were much relieved and really enjoyed our stay. The view is the best in La Jolla, the location ideal for restaurants, shopping and going for a morning jog along the coast. The room was clean and reasonably priced for what was offered and its location. The pool was execellent as was the spa. Parking on site was so convenient.

      Nice location, but the place needs to be demolished and replaced


      Website very misleading. Nice view on the roof, but the rooms have not been updated since the 1960's. Very small rooms, most with NO view.

      Carpets were very worn. Nice a very good location if you have small children. Stay away from this place. Very expensive for what they ultimately give you. Even the Best Western down the road would be better.........

      Would not stay here again


      We stayed here in Aug. 2003 in a one bedroom oceanview suite. The view was beautiful and the continental breakfast was not bad. Rooms in need of serious remodeling. Fire alarm went off when the shower was used.

      Room was very stuffy, not enough ventilation. No screen in balcony door and could not open window in bedroom. We traveled with 3 small kids and it was hard to find a fast food restaurant around town. Never made it to the pool, didn't look that great. Beds were not comfortable at all.

      It was a good thing we were so exhausted from our days that we basically passed out in the evening. Such a great location, they could do so much better.

      Checked In and Out In 15 Minutes


      What can I say...the web site is misleading. I agree with the other reviews in that the view is beautiful from the hotel and the park across the street but the room that we had was so bad I would not bring the luggage in let alone lay down on the bed. We check-in AND then out as soon as possible. The real down side was paying for two hotels for the first night of the stay - knowing they probably were able to fill it with another unsuspecting out-of-towner that very night. We did see some of the other rooms that friends of ours were staying in and in comparison to ours were OK but not at all what any of us were expecting. Poor accomodations - other reasonable hotels available in town...with similar views and much better quality.

      Try a lot harder


      This place relies entirely on their location and view to get by. Despite a recent renovation, it's not particularly clean, and yet is still quite expensive. In addition, the staff is really inexperienced, there must be a high turnover rate, and very poorly trained. Every transaction took far too long, and they were sonsistently understaffed.Sacrifice the view and stay downtown at the Westgate for a first class hotel.

      Beautiful Location, Pathetic accomadations!


      Don't let the clean looking illustration of the suites on the La Jolla Cove website fool you. This place was a huge letdown. We thought we had signed up for the two bedroom oceanfront suite with an adjacent room...only to find out that the front desk staff played dumb and gave us a microsuite and a ridiculously tiny room located across the hotel. The Oceanfront suite was barely decent with grossly mismatched furniture and a sofa bed that was beyond uncomfortable. The other tiny room had a cramped bathroom with a stand-up shower that would best be compared to a bathroom in a Winnebago. There was one window that could only be opened an inch on each side leaving the room in a constant miserable state of stuffiness. Adding to the misery was a fire alarm that wouldn't stop buzzing and a bed that left us wishing we could sleep on the floor instead...but hey, there wasn't even room to do that!!! The one positive thing I can say is that the rooftop breakfast was not bad and had a stunning view of the ocean. Don't get me wrong, the location and view were absolutely amazing! But the hotel is just a shameful waste of a priceless piece of property.

      ... without my knowledge, so I rolled with it. So if my picture ends up on some weird elderly folks' outta-shape-middle-aged-dude porno site, now you know from where it originated.

      I reached San Diego and the home of my niece Traci and her beautiful family shortly thereafter, where I will be spending the next couple of days.

      ... I returned, Kelsey was getting ready to go meet her friends in a little bit. Neal Erwin was just getting up. Kelsey and I went to Oscar's Mexican Seafood to get breakfast. I used to think that Kono's Grill had the best breakfast burritos, but not any more. While Kono's is really good, it is also way more crowded. You could wait up to an hour in line if you don't get there early. Oscar's is definitely better and there is not a line to order or get your ...

      Side Trip Before Heading To The Airport

      We had a few hours to kill before time to head for the airport so we opted for a quick trip up to La Jolla, just a few miles up the coast from San Diego.

      If there are million dollar ocean view, the stretch of coast just south of town is worth every dollar.

      Heading off to Balboa Park this morning to the Natural History Museum et al. There is a special exhibition on the horse & a photography show on horses called Vavra's Vision. We were lucky enough to find a parking spot right beside the Museum. The exhibit was well-designed & had real items to examine as well as video to cover history.
      The photos were stunning although ...

      We headed north of the city to La Jolla and what a pleasant surprise! I really 'broke' the record for pictures. We walked the waterfront, checked out the seals basking in the sun on the rocks, walked some of the back streets looking at the architecture, checked out the gift shop at the Museum ...
