Spent 4 nights at this HIX property. It's basically an older style beach property recently purchased by IHG. The room was spacious, clean and very modern. The outside amenities were excellent like the pool, hot tub and parking. The location is perfect, off the beach by a block and easy walk. The only reason I did not give this 5...

We stayed one night on a last minute check in. Upon calling, they where very accommodating. We received a good rate and nice remodeled room. Did not take advantage of heated pool but looked inviting. Missed breakfast by a bit but the ladies where excellent on making sure we where taken care of. Only thing was the air/ heating unit...

Glad I stayed there only one night. Building is under construction and parking is limited. Check in area appears to be one of the rooms they converted. Room was nice with crazy high water pressure in the shower. No shower door so water goes all over the floor. Standard HIE breakfast. A long way from the freeway so if you...

I'm glad they are making improvements, and the place should be really nice when they're done. It's not yet. . . That is just one of my complaints, I have a few and they are all pretty minor. By minor I mean not serious enough from keeping me from staying here. First the good. Pretty reasonable rate for La Jolla...

As the renovation is still on going there were no signs advertising the hotel when I arrived and it took two drive-pasts to work out where the entrance was, however once there the welcome was friendly. The first room I was offered was depressing: it overlooked an open stairwell which itself overlooked (and echoed the traffic of) La Jolla Blvd....
