We stayed a couple nights at La Jolla shores hotel. Overall I would rate the hotel above average. I would say the hotel itself is average, but the fact that it is right on the beach makes it above average.
I will simply express the pros and cons:
Right on the beach.
Right next to a park (nice with kids)
Restraunts and shops only 1 block away.
Front desk check in was professional (can't say the same about checking out)
Pay 17$ per day for parking below the hotel. We were there on a Saturday night and it was tough to find a spot. No problems finding spots on the other nights.
Rooms are dated. Carpets are frayed, wallpaper frayed.
May put you right next to a wedding party we were not even a part of. (this can be a coastline view room such as ours)...so caution on weekends.
Ben, the gentleman who checked us out wasn't very professional in my opinion. When he asked how our stay was...I said fine except that first night was very loud with the wedding reception right outside our room (loud music, ect). His response was "that sounds about right". Was not too impressed about that response. I do not think he realized how this comes off, and will say that all the other staff I dealed with were very kind.
So overall above average hotel because of location only.
If you don't mind some noise, don't mind the rooms being a bit dated, want to be right on the beach then this is the hotel for you.
I would stay here again, but only if I stayed in ocean front room. We stayed at coastline view room.
