If you're a surfer, kayak-er or just a plain lover of the ocean, this is a superb location. The problem with that is that it brings people flooding to the area so that at almost every moment of the day, there is hustle, bustle and noise around the hotel. We were forced to check out early because we hadn't slept... More

We found your hotel online and decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised at arrival of the ambiance, friendliness of staff, and how welcome we felt. The hotel was steps away from the ocean and the availability of chairs, towels, and umbrellas took away the stress of having to bring all they with us. The beach and hotel were... More

We recently stayed for 4days in a standard garden room (304, that included breakfast for two every morning. We were a little disappointed that check-in isn't till 4pm, but found ourselves excited to spend our time in the garden area playing ping pong. We were assigned a room on the 3rd floor, facing the adjacent resort and alley way where... More

We LOVED the La Jolla Shores Hotel. The staff is very friendly, clean rooms, great view, right on the beach. The hotel and beach are more beautiful than the website can ever show. Chairs, umbrellas and towels available on the beach. The pool was clean and the pool area was beautiful. Every room has a patio with 2 chairs. I... More

LOVED staying at the La Jolla Shores Hotel! Or the Sea Lodge if you are an oldie like me. We go to the beach every June. We always hated finding parking and then hauling all our stuff all the way down to the beach. The Shore Hotel eliminates all that trouble! There is covered parking and there is an awesome... More

La Jolla Shores is a fabulous hotel to visit. We had the best time, everything was clean and just pure refreshing. The customer service was so GREAT. I highly recommend this hotel. The food from the restaurant isn't much to brag about, the pizza was dull and the dessert "chefs special" wasn't good at all, we ended up sending it... More

My husband and I spent four nights at this resort. It is just one of two hotels located directly on the beach in San Diego. It is a beautiful place. The setting is Spanish design, with beautiful flowers and plants everywhere and large red tiles throughout the courtyard. The staff is excellent! They are friendly, courteous, and very helpful.

I highly recommend La Jolla Shores Hotel. Fabulous location, great atmosphere and terrific service. Can't think of a better way to start your day than breakfast in their restaurant overlooking the ocean...we were treated to watching the antics of a sea lion our last morning. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind....this is it.
