If you're arriving late and do not want to go far - nearly next door is 'the Shack' - a sceny little reataurant with...

So, this hotel is under construction which they didn't mention at the time of making a booking. The front desk told us that the workers were gone for the weekend so we don't need to worry about the noise, this was Saturday afternoon and once we got our room, what do you know the painters were painting the building near...

1. The hotel was under construction. The least they could have done is notify guests; a discount for the inconvenience would have been a good business move. 2. Although it said "pets accepted" on the website, I did not see the fee. I expect a fee, but I think $75 exorbitant - I've never paid that much in the finest...

We could easily walk the coastline from the location. The hotel is a little older but still very nice. They are in the process of adding on a sizable addition. What stands out the most is the amazing customer service. The front desk person really makes you feel welcome. Pool is good. Hot tub not the hottest but nothing to...

Had a few hick ups with the room, but the lady at the front desk (from Bulgaria) was truly amazing. First class customer service that really turned things around for our trip.

Once again, the La Jolla Holiday Inn was the BEST choice! So impressed with the entire staff - especially Lanie, who provided such exceptional, personable and lovely service. She even remembered me from my previous visit, which feels special! They were under construction still, but it didn't matter at all. Rooms were clean, well-maintained and spacious. Parking was a snap....

Yes, the hotel is undergoing an addition and could use some updating; but dollars for donuts it is a great deal and a very nice place to stay.
