This hotel is the best we've ever stayed at from the staff who checks us in, the housekeeping staff, security, and dining room staff. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and always clean and well maintained.

Would definitely recommend this hotel, the staff in particular were every professional, efficient, warm and friendly. In its prime it must have been a beautiful property. It has aged but seems to be taken care of and that is probably what makes it so affordable.

I was lost, it was dark and raining, and I was looking for the hotel I had reserved in vain, and stumbled upon the Shores and went in to use the rest room - and to my surprise, it was incredibly relaxing and inviting and I was weary so I inquired about a room and got a lovely king room... More

It covers a whole block and is three stories high. Coming in to La Jolla on 52 exit La Jolla Shores Drive (Right exit) at first lights turn... More

Our second time staying at La Jolla Shores. First time without kids, second time with two boys - 10 and 13. Great location - on the water, walking distance to rent surf boards, kayak, and restaurants. Clean, large rooms and great facilities.

We chose this hotel for our family vacation to Southern California in June. We can't wait to go back! You can't get much closer to the ocean, and if you ask them, they will set up seats and umbrellas for you on the beach. It is such a neat area too - just a block away you can rent kayaks,... More

My wife and I went to La Jolla to meet with some friends and do some shopping (and just get away). We had been to La Jolla numerous times before and found our previous lodgings unsuitable for this trip.We Looked at TripAdvisor and found LJS the highest rank in our price range and reserved through Hotels.com on the TA website....

Nothing bad to say here. From the food to the rooms to the staff - our stay was excellent. It's right on the beach and a 5-10 min. drive to anywhere else in La Jolla. We stayed here for 3 nights after spending some time in downtown San Diego to get in some quiet time before heading home. I can... More
