We stopped for a night here on our way to Key West. What a gem! We had a room with a kitchenette. Upstairs room with a view of the bay. Comfortable and clean. They had free kayaks for use, which was a nice perk. This inn is within walking distance of several restaurants and small shops. We would stay here... More

Clean and comfortable. It takes you back to another time when things didn't move so fast. Walking distance to Lorelei Restaurant where you can listen to excellent live music and watch the sunset and if you get up early you can walk across the road and see the sun rise. Make sure you stop at Mangrove Mike's Cafe for breakfast... More

What a lovely little place right on the water. I can't say enough about the service we received by Scott and Brendon. I brought my 79/80 year old parents to Florida, first time in the keys and was so happy we chose this property to spend our week. Every request we made was quickly taken care of by Scott and...

This place has all the charm in the world... 1950s vibe building. Really clean rooms and a layed back atmosphere. My dad has been coming for years! I hope to come and take advantage BIKES AND KAYAKS! The staff is the just the best! They make the place memorable! Can't wait to come visit again

My husband and I just returned from a week long stay at La Jolla. This was our second yearly visit and I can assure you we WILL be returning next year! (if not sooner) We spent a week in room B and couldn't have ask for anything to be any different. The manager Scott and his staff ALWAYS go above... More

My husband and I spent the long weekend at La Jolla, in room B, which faces the bay. It was a spacious, clean and bright room. The beds were very comfy and it was a very relaxing place. The staff in the office were very friendly. We had a great time. This is not a fancy resort, just a 1950's... More

Glad you and your hubby had a nice little get away. If you don't mind stairs Unit T with the kingsize bed has a great view too and is perfect for a couple on a short stay. More

We had a great time. Comfy beds, updated old Keys motel. Clean and quiet. Very nice property. Nice dock with room for about 5 or 6 boats. Walking distance from several great places to eat and shop. Islamorada Beer Company is directly across the street. We'll be back.

Nice place! 1950's charm with new paint and clean rooms. If you are looking for 50" flat screens and large luxurious showers, this place is not for you. But, if you are looking for old school, reasonably priced motels that celebrate old Florida, you will find La Jolla a gem. It's on the water (bayside), and has kayaks and bikes... More
