We loved the closeness to the beach and the quick drive to downtown San Diego. They even gave us chairs for the day at the beach! They staff was so kind. The pool could use a little update to match the rest of the hotel. But it was still great!

Updated rooms. No hangers, and none available. Breakfast options for cereals were sweet kids kinds. Location was very good and staff was very nice.

Very nice room! We loved the modern look and it was very clean! Nice spa and heated pool were perfect during the cool weather at night. Just a short walk down to the beach and bikes to rent if you wanted to go for a ride! We will definitely return for another stay!!

Walking distance to the ocean and restaurants

It worked out great for our needs. Wahoo's fish tacos was close by.

With the beach, restaurants and shops close by; it’s no wonder why the La Jolla Beach Travelodge has been preferred by so many visiting La Jolla for the past 60 years. We appreciate your review and hope to see you the next time you’re in beautiful La Jolla!

Great old-fashioned motel.

We enjoyed this hotel in the midst of LaJolla. Pleasant staff. Bathroom a little chilly.

The La Jolla Beach Travelodge is conveniently located less than 2 miles from downtown La Jolla, 1 block away from the beach and close to many shops and restaurants. All our rooms have a 1000 dollar Friedrich AC unit that also works as a heater also at the front desk we have a portable heater that can be used in your bathroom. We always encourage our guests to let us know if there is a question or an issue so we could offer a solution. Our employees are like family and we like to treat our guests the same way. It is our mission to keep our guests experience a great one.

Service, Location sparkle here

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: old tired fixtures and decor
Nice and knowledgeable front desk staff. Easy walk to Windandsea Beach, La Jolla businesses and restaurants. Lackluster, ageing motel with basic services and amenities, standard rooms with the usual necessities. One of our above-bed reading lamps lacked a bulb, otherwise everything worked. Irons and sewing kits available at front desk. Continental breakfast was skimpy but adequate to get day started. Pool area functional, unadorned. This motel was exactly what was expected.
