Wonderful Getawayfrom OCtravelers7
Great Location, Excellent Service!from worldtraveler2015
We spent the first night in the Ellen Browning Scripps room, which is beautiful, had plenty of sunlight and was a little cozy. When the day care center in the building next door was showing movies into the late hours of the night, we had a difficult time getting restful sleep. We mentioned it to Gayle the next morning, and she immediately offered us a quiet room (Fiesta room) that was also an upgrade. That made our stay much more comfortable!
The gourmet breakfast is terrific, and served in the dining room with background music. They offered coffee, tea, and orange juice. When we asked if they served hot chocolate, they decided to make a special cup for us.
We went to the beach one day, and asked if the Inn had any beach umbrellas. They not only provided the umbrella, but they gave us beach towels and beach chairs without us even asking.
The Inn is cozy and walking distance to shops, restaurants and beaches in La Jolla Cove. I highly recommend this B&B, as it's in a great location and was a wonderful experience!
A Delightful Oasis in the Heart of La Jolla Village.from Anniebird
My room (WindandSea) and bath were sparkling clean and beautifully furnished, with excellent amenities (Note: no tv or phone in the room itself, but I thought this was a plus!). The bed was super comfortable, the linens and towels were luxurious, and the screened windows opened to let in a cool breeze from the ocean, which was visible beyond the trees.
The breakfasts were excellent, and there was an impressive selection of cheeses for the afternoon wine and cheese buffet. The staff was unobtrusive, warm and helpful. There is no staff on site after 8 pm but guests are given keys to the house, and are assured that the manager ,who lives nearby, is available at all times.
I will note that the highly touted garden was pleasant but nothing special. Some reviews that I read criticized the noise from the adjacent recreation center; I did hear muffled sounds of a basketball game early on Saturday morning, but it was no worse than being in a normal suburban neighborhood. And the other guests at the inn were very cordial and quiet.
My only negative experience concered a 25% discount offer that was noted online but not offered when I called the Inn directly to book. I noticed the discount ad the following day and when I called to ask that it be applied, I was apologetically but firmly refused because I had not requested it at the time I made the reservation. The ad was not clear about having to do this, and I thought the refusal was unfair, but it wasn't enough to spoil my experience or my good impression of the property. I would definitely stay there again, but I would check for online specials first!
s Spectacular!from Abundanceforyou
The food was absolutely amazing, better than many high-end restaurants. The chefs are very creative and produced some wonderful and unique dishes.
The best part was the staff - they were just outstanding in every respect. The innkeepers attended to our every need like we were family, no wait, BETTER than family. Everyone made us feel very welcome and special. The manager was extremely helpful and was a joy to be with.
We can't wait to come back to our "second home" in La Jolla!
Some good, some badfrom TXTravellingDuo
The food was very good. Cookies and all. Wine and cheese set-up was generous.
One minor annoyance that has colored my opinion of the welcoming atmosphere - the management has a rule not allowing guests to use their computers even for the 2 minutes necessary to get an online boarding pass. You have to go find an internet cafe with Computers or a library (I travelled without laptop so I would relax) and this was an annoyance on my Sunday afternoon. I am used to staying in b&b's where you are treated like a guest in someone's home.

Paradise at its best!from humblepie
We will definately be coming back on an annual basis. This inn was beautiful, a great value and the staff was exceptional!
Awesomefrom A TripAdvisor Member
I had the smallest room, Kate Sessions, since I was just one person. But It is an adorable room. And it has a tub and shower and everything I needed . It has no TV but is only a few steps from the parlor which does have a TV. I was able to see the conclusion of "American Idol." I did not find my room noisy at all. The other people around were always considerate. The room and bath were always clean. I found the cleaning people as friendly as everyone else.
The breakfasts were wonderful. Besides fancy eggs, waffles, pancakes with meat if you wished, there was great homemade granola with strawberries and blueberries. There was always organic unusual flavored tea and several kind of homemade muffins. And of course coffee and juice. Iced tea and cookies or muffins were available all day. There was wine in the afternoon with crackers and cheese. And wine was available in the rooms.
Parking at the Inn is limited. I did not have a car, but I have a friend from Oceanside who visited frequently. We did not have a problem parking. He has a small Toyota and parked behind the Inn in the B&B's designated spots during the day. We walked around La Jolla alot which we enjoyed and left the car until later in the day, after 4PM , when he moved it to the front of the Inn when parking is free. But there is free parking all day on other streets very close to the Inn. The Innkeeper can direct you. In addition I think they are looking into getting some more spots.
This is a wonderful Inn for couples and a single like me. LaJolla is a great place. It is truly beautiful. Swimming is great, restaurants are great. Shopping is wonderful. If you like seals, you can see them in their natural habitat in the children's pool. There are beautiful birds. The hummingbirds come right around the patio at the Inn. Don't pass this place by. I had a great time and I think you will too.
Top Local Tips for La Jolla
Jogging Nearby From the Cove area, jog south on the sidewalk. During low-tide, there it's possible to jog along the tide-pools which provides for a scenic run.
Fine dining Dine at Tupinambe. George's had a nice view but average food.
Must chow at George's George's outdoor bar has awesome ocean views and the best fish tacos ever!
