We have stayed here before and had a different experience the room had a coast view which isn't bad but this time we booked with the hotel directly and got a ocean front room. Yes there was construction but we were on the 2nd floor so it wasn't to bad! The view from the bed and sound of the ocean... More

My boyfriend and I were in la jolla for a weekend and wanted to stay on the beach. That is the only thing this hotel offers. We called the hotel directly instead of booking on a discounted website to ensure we booked the room type we wanted, beach view with a king bed. We were ensured that was what we... More

So we reserved two rooms at the hotel, but they put us in the tennis club next door. Much better location...there is massive construction on the south side of the hotel at the beach. If you are at the hotel I think you can go to the tennis club bar, next to their pool. Check first since you can only... More

We just stayed at la Jolla shores last week for spring break. We had a beachfront deluxe room, and it was perfect for our family of 5...and right on the beach! Our kids loved being able to go right from the beach to the pool. Our room was clean and well kept. We would definately stay again.

We've (wife + 2 kids) have stayed at the LaJolla Shores several times over the last 20 years. It is our favorite place to stay in SoCal. This is one of the few hotels in all of the San Diego area directly on the beach -- and that location is why it ranks so high. The hotel is very simple... More

Hotel is on the great place directly on the beach. That is all. Maybe from this reason is overpriced. Rooms are little bit old fashioned, but without "soul of old America". Very thin acoustic isolation there. So you will know everything about your neighbors, their children and they about you. Noisy reconstruction of next road is in the progress from... More

It is our honeymoon!!!!!! That being said let me begin from the beginning. When we got here and let the front desk know about our honeymoon they instantly hooked us up with champagne, 2 not cheap breakfast vouchers and validated our parking for 24 hours. That was OUR first impression of this wonderful place and it's staff. Each day has... More

We reserved two beachfront rooms for 3 nights through Travelocity. We arrived Wednesday, 4/9. We had asked for top floor rooms which were not guaranteed but we had high hopes that we would receive them. Well, we were given 1st floor rooms so we were intially disappointed. There was road construction near the hotel which they could not help and... More

We planned a quick getaway for a wedding and chose this hotel by the website description and photos. It is clean enough, but really needs to be closed down and renovated if they want to charge these rates. Reminded me of an old villa type hotel I stayed at in LA for $87. Bought a beach front room online for... More

This is an awesome hotel right on the beach in La Jolla. The La Jolla beach is a very active one with surfers, joggers, walkers, kayak rentals, scuba divers. It is really fun if you like a lot of activity. Don't expect quiet solitude. The hotel had really nice beds. We had a coastal view which a side view down... More
