I have stayed at the La JOlla Shores a dozen or so times -- it has become one of my favorite places. There is nothing fancy about the hotel -- it has a very 1960's motorcourt kind of look and feel BUT the staff are helpful and non-intrusive. The rooms are comfortable and serviceable (love the refigerator!) but not posh. Hotel has a pool, hot tub, and fitness center. For early risers (like eastcoasters wide awake at 4AM) there is a complimentary coffee bar in the lobby. Restuarant has good food and a quicky, genuinely retro bar. The entire facility is authentic. So what makes it my favorite place? The VIEW! The hotel is the only hotel in the La Jolla area that is directly on the beach! It is so much fun to sit on the patio and watch surfers, paddlers, and become a part of laid-back beach life. The hotel is right in the LJS village and there are tons of small charming restuarants. A half hour walk including the cliffside coast walk route tales you to the Village of La Jolla. I am always here for business -- one of these days I am coming just for a holiday.
