After looking at many hotels to possibly stay.. we are so happy we booked this one! They by far exceeded the level of customer service I've ever been provided. From the warm welcome to the courtesy shuttle that took us to dinner and back. They gave wonderful suggestions on restaurants that provided amazing views of the ocean. We also ate... More

Really enjoyed our recent stay at the Hotel La Jolla. After a rough first night due to the road noise we asked to switch rooms and we were graciously accommodated. The rooms at the south end of the property should be avoided (we had room 900). If the hotel had been full, we would have checked out. After the first... More

The Hotel La Jolla is a typical Kimpton property- clean, contemporary and comfortable. The building has been well renovated and includes a restaurant on the upper floor (did not try). As with all, they accommodate dogs and make them feel very welcome. My Westie was more than happy here. The room includes a very small patio that overlooks an ocean... More

Rooms are still being updated. The exterior of the building shows its age, but the inside is bright and modern. However you still have to walk outside to get the elevators down to the lobby. Breakfast and valet parking ($28/day) are not included, and you cannot self park. If you want wifi, you need to join the Klimpton "club". There... More

From the moment we walked in to the time we left, the staff at Hotel La Jolla exceeded our expectations. Kyle was a wonderful host and helped to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The hotel had plenty of activities for us to enjoy! We will definitely be returning.

Stayed here for two nights. The rooms were quite comfortable but with no bath. Good view of the beach from all rooms. The breakfast in the restaurant was disappointing - ordered berries many of which were rather wrinkly and should not have been served; and huevos rancheros which did no match the description on the menu (where was the chorizo?)...

From the moment we pulled up to Hotel La Jolla we were greeted with big smiles and felt like family! From the beautiful lobby and the special little sand buckets filled with Jelly Beans for my daughter and son. Our room had the perfect view of the ocean. Our favorite night was making s'mores by the fire pit. The trip... More

Our stay at Hotel La Jolla was one of the best in recent history, mostly because of the fantastic service. From the valets to the front desk staff to the restaurant staff, it was perfect service.

A family friend suggested Hotel La Jolla and they were spot on! My husband and I stayed 3/13-3/17 and loved every minute. While this hotel isn't on the beach it is a .5 mile walk to La Jolla shores and about a mile to main town La Jolla. Both walks are completely gorgeous so it is definitely not a burden,... More
