The pool is very nice and most of the staff are friendly. They didn't answer their main telephone number, at all, in the days leading up to my arrival. They also do a poor job of warning guests that July 4 fireworks cannot be viewed from the hotel unless you are in a private reserved area. Missing much of the fireworks while exploring the hotel for a non-exclusive vantage point was, needless to say, a bummer. Housekeeping was marginal: some room service items weren't removed, shampoo/toiletries weren't replenished, and drain in shower was clogged with sand upon arrival.
Lobby The room was tiny, very uncomfortable, and lousy view.The charge for the room was ridiculous. We also had to pay $30 to park her car.,,
We stay at this Best Western every time we go to La Jolla....we always have a great experience....great prices don't like having to pay for parking
Location, close to the shore/beach Shops Restaurants Amenities Galleries Construction noise Must pay for parking
The location was outstanding. The view from our balcony was breathtaking. The lobby was tastefully decorated and parking was available and easy. Seems a little exessive to charge additionally for parking- it is not secure parking in an enclosed lot. The rooms were a little shabby, specifically the bathroom and carpeting. There was trash in the trashcan and food crumbs on the balcony when we checked in. The balcony was not ever cleaned during our stay.
Convenient, clean, quiet, nice balcony. Staff was very helpful getting me set up with wireless connection. $75 deposit for wireless card. It was refunded, but it would be more convenient if there was wireless without needing a card.
they were under construction, thought they could have waited until winter, or charged less for the noise and mess not charged full price. see above
it;s a good spot for us as I come to go to the VA hospital the thing that is the most madding is there is no where on site that says there is going to be a parking fee when booking on line!!!
very well located, spacious rooms with balcony, small details (fruitbasket, iced coffee in the lobby, free wifi) no refrigerator in the room; parking fee (12$ per day)
Centrally located in downdown La Jolla close to restaurants, shopping and beautiful walks by the ocean.
Best western by the sea provided ample parking, the rooms were clean and comfortable which allowed us to enjoy la jolla as were able to get a good nights rest.
Too many gnats in our room
Loved setting and charm of older hotel in downtown La Jolla. Ease to the beach and beauty of surrounding are.
Bed was amazing, very roomy and great price. AC was a nice perk and the proximity to beach and shops was perfect. We went for a relaxing get away it surely delivered. Parking was more challenging and valet was expensive.
The staff was amazing. Ben, at the front desk, was incredibly kind and helpful with excellent recommendations. Even the room service staff was superior! I liked everything.
That it found a room for me after I arrived an learned that IT DID NOT HAVE MY RESERVATION! I brought a printout of the Priceline confirmation and got what the staff said was the only remaining room, the result of a recent cancellation. That the cleaning staff got my bed ready for the evening but failed to pick up wet towels I left on the floor after my shower at 5 pm (to prepare for a pre-wedding reception for out of town guests).
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The breakfast was excellent! The room was very comfortable. Parking was very expensive at $18 a day.
Very nice and close to downtown La Jolla. Nice bar and good night life The bar tender was sort of grumpy and not too friendly.
This is a nice quaint hotel in the heart of the town of La Jolla. They have a friendly capable staff
The service was excellent, hotel employee at the front desk went above and beyond to help us!!

The Breakfast was nice. The room they served it in was to small for the amount of people.Great staff. Good location 2 blocks from the beach. The parking was $18 for valet. We parked a couple blocks away for free.
The beds were very comfortable, friendly staff, excellent coffee, cute shops in walking distance! The only bummer was the parking. You don't have to pay for the hotel valet (which I think was $18 a day), but you can only park your car on the street at certain times. We felt rushed to get ready in the morning so we wouldn't get a parking ticket.
Location, right in the center of downtown La Jolla. Easy to walk around the shops and to the beach area. Parking is at a premium. Costs $18.00 per day for valet. Not a problem if one is staying a night or two, but a week might be a cost issue!
Stayed here with my husband and two daughters, 7 and 9. We really didn't spend much time in the hotel, but it was clean and quiet. The location was nice for the coast, shopping and dining. The complimentary breakfast was a bonus.
The location, view, complimentary strawberry waffles, staff, salt pool and kitchenette, paying for parking, elevators not working, small bathroom counters and musty
LOCATION SMALL ROOM, TIRED WITH RUST IN THE BATHROOM. INADEQUATE HEATING AND AIR. EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT WE GOT
The location was amazing, the views from the rooftop patio were unbelievable.th The facilities seemed dated. Inside the room had some 70's decor.
Location, location, location! Breakfast and being served on roof excellent. Staff above average. Little balcony overlooking the park/ocean very nice. Doors absolutely slam hard when just closed normally. Unbelievably loud. Disturbs sleep at night as people come in from late activities and in the AM when others are getting up and on their way early. Rooms very outdated and not kept up well at all. Screens torn, towel rack fell out of the wall, stains om couch, etc No air conditioning and we happened to be there during warmer than normal period so the room was too warm, and effected sleep.
The location Room was very very small, room cleanness was bad and also bed sheets were dirty. Very disappointed for the price
Clean room, great price. Outstanding location. Internet did not work, rooftop barbecue not functioning and no help from management & staff when requested. Hotel is under new ownership and they are obviously minimizing their expenses in all areas. Major arguments between staff over room damage.
This is a very pleasant hotel. It has a style - perhaps a bit European. The staff is very friendly. Being in La Jolla, the price is a bit steep. Also, for some reason it seems that the windows don't insulate well, and it's a bit noisy.
The entire staff were all so friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond when I forgot my wedding rings in the room the morning we left!!!!! Loved the accomodations, as did my 13 and 15 year old children. They really paid atttendion to every detail when they rennovated the units. My 13 year son even commented on the linens and matresses. Just a joy. Excellent location. Ocean on one side, beautiful La Jolla Village on the back side. Would definately go back.
The view and the location was fantastic Cleanliness, food
The Inn was wonderful and the staff was amazing. Booking through this website was a very poor experience. The room was supposed to have an ocean view and was not as advertised on this website. Luckily after contacting the inn directly I was able to change our room. There was NO savings in price either to book through this website.
The grounds are gorgeous, the employees are exceedingly friendly and go above and beyond in every instance. They honestly seem to enjoy pleasing the customers, and even politely asked at check out if there was anything they could improve upon. Nothing. That was my response. I can say nothing negative about this inn. If you come away displeased, there simply is no pleasing you.
Staff was amazing! Made sure my every need was filled! The room with the spa tub is amazing! Nothing, everything was awesome
