The halls and elevator were dirty, the room needed some attention in the bath which was very dated (screamed 1975) and had several plumbing issues. It is a clearly old building and suffering from some deferred maintenance. Beach/sea is across the road, and through a wide park area, so you could not hear the waves....you could see the ocean, but not feel you were very near to it. No restaurant on site
Considering high prices in the area, nice location for the price, we had corner deluxe room, nice view, spacious 2 rooms in the apartment, great balcony to sit on, quiet area, nice walking in park and along the sea. Handy to a small beach area, La Jolla shopping and eats. Decent breakfast area with plenty of seating & food choices, sort of a glorified, extended Continental. Parking available @ extra cost, but in an area that is scant on parking places, well worth it for the convenience.
