Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious, and there was a nice water filter in the hallway to refill bottles rather than buying, which we appreciated. I give it a 4 only because it is not the most ideal location...yes, you can see the ocean from "ocean view" rooms, but there are buildings/obstructions and a back alley to look past. The walk to water's edge was doable and pleasant, 5-10 mins.

The friendly staff and great location made my stay here wonderful. The room was clean, comfortable, and once the kids left the pool area, quiet. Parking was easy either on the street (free) or in their lot ($15). I loved being able to walk to the beach, restaurants and shops.

Proximity to the beach is great. But, seriously in need of updating. Tubs are painted with acrylic coating and our tub drain did not allow us to take a bath until it was fixed (quickly) by the maintenance woman. The staff was very responsive and very nice.

Ok but points off for service. Location is best thing, walkable in La Jolla Village. Property reasonably maintained for older one. Don't expect great ocean views, only partial views past other buildings closer to the shore. Worst was service of some of the staff; first, they knowingly put us in a room with non-working air conditioning (in August) that was not to be repaired soon, and we had to adamantly request to be moved. Unfortunately left a couple items in the room and when I inquired about them the next day, there was no sign of them so can only conclude the housekeeping staff kept or threw them away. Rarely have I left anything but at other properties have had good luck in getting things returned.

I assume our mistake has been corrected. Sorry to see that a billing mistake on our part left your overall experience so negative as to result in a 1 out of five rating. I hope you give us another opportunity the next time your travels bring you back to beautiful La Jolla Village...
