Nice place, high price
This is not worth the price if you’re focusing on La Jolla Cove. It’s close to WindnSea- about a five minute walk. About a mile or so from the cove. Not easy to drive to, but a busy, crowded walk. It’s within walking distance to restaurants and a coffee shop. Pool was underwhelming. Not very warm and also not many places to sit. The room was great. Comfortable and clean. I just don’t think it’s worth the price. But overall it was a good stay.

2/10 Poor

Unfriendly , Pay to park , difficult check in.
Paid 700$ 4 weeks before my trip for my room, when I arrived I was told that they didn't have my room or reservation. The Front desk attendant Daisy was rude and unhelpful at first saying " she cant help I need to call " Turned into a argument ending with her " calling " and getting it fix for me. That should of been the first thing she did instead of telling me that she cant help and its out of her control.

Meh- great location, 1-2 star vibe
Definitely felt like a motel that got a new paint job. It was in the perfect location and a great price. But the beds were the most uncomfortable- the sheets were rough, the pillows felt thin and plastic-y… I would only stay here again for its convenience.

Family of 6 enjoyed our stay and would book again.
We had a short stay here but it was great. Rooms were clean and spacious. The location was easy to find and so close to the ocean. Would definitely stay again. Just a heads up though parking is kinda limited if you come back to late on the evening there might not be a space for you.
