We spent a week here while visiting family. I love this funky little retro jewel! In the mornings I would take my coffee to the docks and watch for dolphins and manatees. They have kayaks, life jackets, and fishing poles for guests to use. The pool was the perfect temperature. I loved sitting by the water or by the pool... More

Husband, kids and I stayed at La Jolla for 6 nights and had another wonderful stay! This is our third stay and we absolutely love it here. The staff and management went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. There was one incident with another guest but the management quickly and professionally... More

This was our 4th trip in 4yrs to LaJolla. It was not the same! The attention to detail was lacking. And that's what gives it its charm. The upkeep on the grounds needed attention, the trash outside was full, there was a gross ashtray that sat on the dock all week with soggy cigars in it, someone's flip flops laid... More

We stayed six nights in the two-bedroom suite nearest to the waterfront. What a treat! We had been in Orlando for nearly a week and this place was just what we needed. So many great things about it: really friendly and helpful staff, free use of kayaks, free use of snorkelling equipment, free use of bikes, lovely waterfront little boat... More

Came to Islamorada for a vintage vacation with 2 adult children and husband, we had a lovely time. Place is peaceful, has use of bikes and kayaks for free, lovely surroundings. Rooms were clean, bathroom a bit small. With dock space saw interesting fish every day, beautiful sunsets and have your own cocktails.

I absolutely loved my stay there. Clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are small. Heck the rooms are small but fine. The beauty is the fantastic small sitting/relaxing area facing the Gulf. Yes, small. But lovely and quiet with many chairs for lounging. They had a stand up paddle board and some kayaks you could borrow-that was great. I noticed bikes... More

This is my favorite Islamorada motel of all. Reasonably priced, great location, nice rooms, and very peaceful. Docking for boats on the bayside, and a nice beach area for relaxing. Very good wifi throughout the property.

Stayed here for 4 days. Had to change room because of scheduling, which did cause cofusion for the staff. Scott was very welcoming and was eager to point out local places to visit which were great. Other staff were less helpful. Rooms were alittle dated but clean. Pool was lovely. Bikes and kayaks were available for use, free. A local... More

We enjoyed our second stay at the La Jolla Resort. As the first time, the rooms are clean and easily accessible. Even being a few hours early for check in, our room was ready for us. That was a big help as we were able to start our day! Scott and staff continue to keep the grounds beautiful. We really... More
