3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spent 5 nights here recently. We stayed here a couple of years ago and really enjoyed the hotel, beach and amenities. This time, however, the hotel seemed tired with average service. Housekeeping bypassed the bathroom leaving wet towels on the floor and only 1/2 roll of toilet paper. The beds were the worst. When we sat on the bed... More

We stayed here for one night and it was well worth it. Great location on beach. Rooms were big and comfortable. Walking distance to restaurants and kayak companies. Kayak trips leave right from beach in front of hotel. Hotel provides beach chairs and towels and even sets them up for you. We had dinner in the Shores restaurant. Food was... More

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times since 2005. We always enjoy our stay. The beachfront rooms are wonderful, and great restaurants are within walking distance. It's not the most posh hotel, but clean, comfortable and right on a great beach location.

I travel the world on business and stay in some great hotels but if I had to pick one hotel to return to it would be La Jolla Shores. This is a gem and my two boys (14 and 10) simply did not want to leave after our 8 night stay.

This is the only property I am aware of in La Jolla that is on the beach. The property has a little bit of an outdated feel, but it was very clean, and we had a wonderful stay. The staff was very attentive, and the food was excellent.

Location was wonderful. Right on the beach. Staff would set up chairs and umbrellas for you. our room was on the 3rd floor and the seagulls were living on it. It was very hard to sleep with the birds moving around and calling day/night. Spa was constantly filled with children. Shuttle service was wonderful and easy way to get around... More

This hotel is directly on the beach however, the rooms are not a four star as I have seen in many sites. We had a room that the door opened directly to the street and it was noisy from traffic and all the beach goers who came through the hotel. Apparently anyone can be a part of some beach club...

I have stayed here in the past and always loved it, but my most recent stay was disappointing. The best part of the hotel, is that it is right on the beach and there are a few restaurants and shops within walking distance.The rooms are adequate, but nothing special. The beds are comfortable and it is nice to have robes... More
