Stayed for the 3rd time in a few years. Hotel staff are prompt and courteous. However, the rooms/menities are showing signs of age/wear. Not a complaint, as we don't spend much time in the room. Had an issue with the A/C unit - the fan was making loid noises through the first night. However, the hotel staff corrected the issue... More

If you are in the area, check out The Shores Hotel restaurant and bar, overlooking La Jolla Shores Beach. Great for a sunset drink, their happy hour with $6 delicious fish tacos and mixed drinks, and an interesting bar menu orin the lovely dining room a dining experience for a beautiful occasion. Parking under the hotel is a plus, the... More

The La Jolla Shores Hotel is a fantastic choice for a beach getaway. The hotel is located on the beach annd offers umbrellas, chairs and towels for it guests. The rooms are large, clean and many offer wonderful views of either the coast or ocean. The staff are friendly and quite helpful. Their restaurant offers fantastic views, but is a... More

Great seashore hotel. Park your car underneath in the parking structure and enjoy your beach vacation. This hotel is not fancy, but it's right on the beach. Rooms are spacious with refrigerators and safes and great ocean views. Restaurant is delicious and casual, the bar overlooks the beach. They have beach attendants who will set you up on the sand...

Nice location right on the beach on La Jolla, great for families, with lots of beach activities. Convenient beach access and lots of towels/umbrellas/chairs provided by hotel. Pool is small but adequate, room is adequate, but the best part is the terrific location, which can't be beat. Many excellent, reasonably priced food options just up the street. Different flavor from... More

Located right on the beach, this hotel is a great location and I would stay here again, primarily for the beach setting. The property is also very convenient to beach rentals including kayak and snorkel activities. However, for the price, the infrastructure is a little tired: stained carpets, sticky sliding door, noisy air conditioning. The rooms are fairly standard; shower... More

Our family checked into the Shores for a one-week stay but lasted only 3 nights. The beachfront location is undeniably the best in town, save for the adjacent La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, the 'big brother' property under the same ownership. But that's where excellence ends. The overall physical plant is in tired shape and could use a mega... More

I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about this place at first (Due to the ridiculous negative reviews.), but this hotel was everything our family wanted & then some. The hotel grounds were very well kept, the staff was great, but I was still worried about the room. Prior to entering the room I was thinking so far... More

TOTALLY agree with cmarsh42131. I don't understand the bad reviews. We stayed 7/19-26th and had a wonderful time. We stayed ocean front- 2nd floor so we got both views North and of the ocean. The rooms are dated - but with the ocean air, I assume it's hard to keep everything looking fresh. Room was pricey - but in line... More

We stayed at La Jolla Shores July 12 through 19, 2014. It is a great place right on the beach, walking distance to shops. Our room was clean, beds are very comfy. Our room was poolside, a little noisy...but the view from the third floor balcony of the ocean was spectacular. We will stay here again!
