My husband and I are from out of town and we stayed here on business. I've always wanted a room looking over the ocean and this suite was stunning! The staff were amazing and took such good care of us... from the free breakfast to the deep sleep of the ocean waves crashing right outside my window and the plush... More

First off, the Scripps Inn is right across the street from our favorite beach in La Jolla. And by across the street I mean literally. The location is perfect. We had a gorgeous view of the ocean from our front window. The room was quite comfortable. When we arrived, the staff was absolutely amazing. They were extremely courteous and helpful.... More

Our suite was gorgeous directly overlooking the ocean. There was a kitchen--fridge, microwave, and stovetop. The Inn is an easy walk to downtown and restaurants, and you are across the street from the ocean. Note, this is a very busy location during the day, but after sunset all was quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you are looking... More

We loved the Scripps Inn. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite that had two small bedrooms and a pull out sofa. It also included a kitchenette and table. The view of the water is beautiful. It is within walking distance of downtown La Jolla, but removed from the hustle and bustle. I would recommend the hotel for families looking... More

Thank you for taking time to post your feedback! Our location and larger than average rooms are two of our best qualities. It really is a great spot for families...we're close to everything but tucked away perfectly enough to stay away from the busy traffic in the villiage. More

First off, the location of this hotel is great. Wonderful view, and not too far of a walk to town (10 minutes). It seemed to be away from all the hustle and bustle, which is nice to come back to relax too. The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. The breakfast in the morning was light but good.

Thank you for posting your review here! I believe our location is one of our key benfits...as you mentioned, we're a very short walk to all the activities in town here but far enough away that the high traffic in the area doesn't affect your stay. If we can ever help set up a return trip to La Jolla please... More

We stayed at the Scripps Inn for two nights and loved the accommodations! The suite was beautiful and comfortable and the staff was very helpful. The continental breakfast every morning was delicious and a great start to our day. The best part about the inn is the location. It is situated directly across the street from the ocean and is...

We stayed at the Scripps Inn for three nights, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit! The inn is very well located, across the street from the beautiful ocean, yet a short walk into town. Our room had a partial ocean view from both sides, was spacious, clean, well maintained and quite comfortable. The continental breakfast included with the room was modest... More

This was a lovely little place in La Jolla. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The suite was bright, airy, nicely decorated and very clean. We really enjoyed sitting outside our room and watching the ocean. At night loved having our window open and hearing the waves. Enjoyed being able to walk across the street and be at the... More

Spent one night at Scripps Inn, and the location was wonderful! Right across the street from the ocean, and you can hear the waves at night. The room was good size and very nicely decorated. There is no elevator to the rooms on the second floor, so request a first floor room if this is an issue. Although the rooms... More

My wife and I spent 7 wonderful days at the Scripps Inn and loved it. We arrived after dark the first evening and woke up the next morning to a beautiful view of the ocean and the beach. The location was great for beach walking and also for walking to downtown in the evenings. The rooms were beautifully furnished and... More
