This was our second visit to La Jolla Shores Hotel. We traveled with our two young children (2 and 4) and my parents. You seriously CANNOT beat the location or the amenities offered at this hotel. We will definitely come back again. We arrived at the hotel early (11:30AM) because of our early flight into SAN. Check-in is typically 3PM... More

Fabulous old school service and comfort. Once there, no need to leave. On best beach in San Diego. Quiet, elegant and great food. Short walk to beach town, but far from crowds and stores. Have been here before and will come again and again.

This hotel is on the beach in LaJolla, you can walk at the doors of the hotel directly on to the sandy beach. Strongly recommend ocean view rooms, the top floor if possible, which are well forth the cost. The hotel restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices, but the Marine Room next door, is exceptional.

This hotel is on the beach, you can walk to a market or local dining, from the room balcony watch the diving and kayak groups ready themselves. The rooms are not fancy, like the 1960s, but the service is great -on the beach, too. This is a very good hotel to feel "on vacation."

We absolutely loved our stay here. Our stay was in May and the beach was not crowded at all and the pool was warm. The hotel is a tad dated, but still classy. Underground garage parking is an extra fee. At the the restaurant attached we watched dolphins swim among the scuba divers and surfers. We traveled with our 6... More

The room was dirty. There was food on the carpet from the last guests, cobwebs on the ceiling and the sheets had stains and cuts/tears. The furniture was stained and needs to be tossed out and replaced.

Great location! This hotel is steps from La Jolla shores/beach where you'll be able to swim, kayak and surf. Note that some of the other hotels are next to La Jolla cove which has a rocky shore rather than a sandy beach. The hotel is older but the staff is great and the room spotless and clean. The walls are... More

We have stayed here many times because of the location near downtown La Jolla but on a lovely beach next to a park looking up the coast to Torrey Pines. Great rooms and many with amazing views and the neighborhood and beach are highly walkable. Expert staff capable of solving most problems.
