La Jolla may be a southern California playground for the rich and richer, but that doesn't mean you have to pay in gold bullion to stay there. Welcome to the budget-friendly La Jolla Inn. Most of its 23 rooms feature stunning Pacific Ocean views. All of the accommodations (which were part of a recent $1 million renovation) include queen-sized beds with quilted bedspreads, wireless Internet access, coffee makers and hair dryers. In the afternoon, there's a complimentary beverage service that also offers free homemade cookies.
