Decent hotel for business - they have some surprisingly inexpensive rates compared to other hotels in the area. Like almost all Marriotts, it's clean and well staffed. One odd thing about this hotel- the "business center" is one computer in the lobby. That takes about 10' to boot up. For a business-centric hotel this is kind of ridiculous. Also, the cheap rate was offset by very high valet parking rates. On the plus side, valet guys were very polite and always offered bottled water. Nice touch.
"Comfortable hotel convenient to the medical center"
The Marriott organization is updating the decor in its hotels to give a more modern feel than was the case in the past. This is true of the La Jolla property. The rooms are comfortable and have multiple charging outlets for phones and portable handheld devices. The desk is comfortable for work on a computer.
"Typical Business Hotel - Housekeeping was a little disappointing"
We stayed here for three days to visit some family. It's a typical business hotel where check-in was efficient, rooms and bathroom clean. The hotel is really nothing stellar. It is nestled in a business park and across the street on La Jolla Village Drive is a rather large outdoor mall. I think it's a Westfields with you typcial anchor chain stores and some of the smaller speciatly stores. The hotel does have parking, but it is very expensive. You could try off street parking. On my last night, when I got back to my room at about 9:00 PM. my room was not made up. I called reception and someone came up within 15 minutes to give me new towels and toiletries. The coffee maker was not replenished with coffee sugar, and creamer. I just gave up rather than calling back down and asking for coffee supplies. They were very apologetic, and I could not figure why my room was not cleaned. It was very disappointing and for that I am giving them 2 stars. Breakfast was not included in the hotel rate so I can not comment. Internet was included only becuase we belong to their loyalty programme.
"2 Star Marriott , Expensive Parking, Expensive Internet"
Was Built in 1982. Marriott Claims They Spent $17 Million On Renovations Recently But I Did Not See Any Signs of It In Hotel. Hallway Carpet In 3rd Floor That I Stayed In Are Old & Worn Off.. Stayed there For 5 Nights. Hotel is generally Bussy For Conferences. Food there Is Expensive but Cross The Street You can Find Many Food & Inexpensive Places. I Had Asked For King Size bed But When i Arrived They Were Trying To Give a double bed. When I Asked Them Why, They Said Priority are Given To Marriott On-Line Reservation not To Expedia, hotels.com , Booking .com, Etc. they finally Agreed To Give Me The king Bed After I said I Will Leave A Comment On Trip Advisor. Rooms Are Average Size, Not Too Large. Parking Is $28.95 A Day, Wifi Is $12.95 Low speed & $16.95 High Speed. There Is Shopping Mall About 30 Minutes Walk-Away. La Jolla Beach Downton Is About 45 min Drive. There Is Nothing Around Closely For Tourist To See. Hotel Room Charge Was very Expensive For The Value You Get. Extremely Windy Noise During The Night. Hotel In Located Between A Few High Raise Building & During The Time I Stayed There Wind Was Creating A Lot Of Noise At Night.
"Strongly Consider Other Options"
For the record, this is the first negative review I've ever written. I felt compelled to inform others as this Hotel is not a representation of the Marriott brand. You'd have a significantly better experience staying at the Courtyard Marriott in Solana Beach (recently visited in Dec 2016) where the staff is courteous and truly goes out of there way to enhance the guest experience. Similar to "BigTomScience's" recent review, we had a horrible night at this property on 1/14/17 and do not recommend staying here in the future. What was suppose to be a kid-free overnight getaway for my wife and I, with low expectations other than a nice dinner and solid night's sleep, was actually an extreme disappointment. Our room, which I believe was 317, was directly over a ballroom and/or nightclub where salsa dancing took place well into the early morning. Although the air conditioner drowned out a portion of the noise, it became increasing louder as the night progressed and we requested a room change at approximately 12:30am. Although the front desk staff accommodated us with a new room, they failed to show any empathy and were shockingly unapologetic, further diminishing the usually best-in-class Marriott guest experience. There are definitely some training and development opportunities as staff should recognize that the last thing a guest wants to do is switch rooms, regardless of the circumstance. We requested to speak with the GM the next morning and ultimately spoke with Jeff, a Front Desk Supervisor. The lack of accountability continued and my wife was offered free coffee as a concession. While we will remain loyal to Marriott and now Starwood Hotels & Resorts, we will never return to the La Jolla Marriott and urge others to seriously consider other options.
