Room 315 has a lovely view... of the stairwell wall. We weren't there a lot, but when we were it was embarrassing to have only a wall to look at. It's honestly ridiculous and should not be a room at all. Or it should be offered at a discounted rate. Taking out the stellar view, the location is great, the... More

We're coming back. Discovered it using googlemaps. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for, a top-notch hotel right on the beach! Heated pool, spa, they will put out an umbrella and beach chair for you. one small city block walk from a stretch of shops and affordable restaurants. really great service. with such a great location I didn't...

Fantastic location for a family hotel, IF you can get past errant hairs that housekeeping didn't clean up from the previous guest. The management has done the absolute bare minimum to provide a clean modernized hotel room experience for their guests. I'd say last remodel was the early 1990's. They are counting primarily on a great location to fill the... More

This hotel is for families who just want to ahh relax. These rooms are spectacular, really comfortable beds, even the rollaway is comfortable. I mean it's right next to the beach, and it has a nice pool/jacuzzi. So this place is old styled, old Spanish tile and a nice fountain. Last but not least it has a great ping-pong table.

Disappointed. Was not worth the price. Very dated rooms, needed maintenance, old furnishings, noisy A/C. Exercise room was like a closet with out of service equipment and only 20 lb weights. Menu offerings had little consideration for healthy choices. Positive side was staff, location and some services.

The first time I stayed here was because of the location. I came back for a business trip and was able to stay again because of the free area shuttle. So I could get to my meetings for free and stay on the beach when not at work!

1st time to La Jolla Shores. While the hotel is an older hotel, they have done a good job keeping it in clean quality condition. It is a great location...right on the beach, walking distance to restaurants and shops. Had an in room massage that was wonderful and highly recommend. Beach chairs could have been a little nicer...not loungers but... More

you can't beat the location (right on the beach). The staff is helpful & friendly. Room service & tech support was very quick. The pool temperature was perfect. I hope to have enough money to make it an annual trip.

la Jolla Shores is part of the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club Ownership. It's been in the same hands since it was built in the 1970's. This property definitely caters to families year after year. The property could certainly use some room upgrades, but the location and ambience can't be beat. The hotel sits on one of the finest... More

We ended up moving to this hotel last minute & what a great choice it was. The hotel itself is not new or fancy but it's always clean & the staff is super helpful and friendly. The room looks a bit older but clean & fresh. Only problem we had with the room is that the air conditioner from the... More
