Room was a nice size and clean but for the money we could have done better. The bed was rock hard- the air conditioner was on and off all night- right next to the bed in a bad place. They have bikes- and kayaks and the location is good .

My husband and I have stayed here at least once a year for the last 15 years. The rooms have been updated and their beds are very comfortable. Vickie, the manager can't do enough for you. The property is what most people want in a Keys experience. The best restaurants in Islamorada are a 5 minute ride south.

I have stayed in many places on Islamorada in all price ranges and this is now one of my very favorites. I like the waterfront area and views. My studio was very airy, nice and had large windows with great views. The location was great and close to many restaurants, etc. This is an old Florida style place and has...

Nice staff, helpful with local things to do and places to eat. Sea view rooms are excellent and the room lay outs are unique for multiple couples, families, etc. Plenty of space. Nice common area by the dock slips for bbq'ing and cracking a few cold ones at sun set. Going back asap

Amazing hidden gem in the middle of islamorada. We really enjoyed getting to know the other travelers and watching sunset from their dock. Rates are affordable with great deco moon where to swim and fish.

The word Oasis truly describes the entire experience of staying at La Jolla. We were lucky enough to be celebrating two birthdays on our stay in mid-September and it's like we had the whole place to ourselves. The water La Jolla is one is absolutely gorgeous and they keep the back looking tropical and relaxing. Location is amazing, right across...

I stayed in unit H Sept 09-12 2016 and loved this 1940's built motel. I've been up and down the Keys for years and La Jolla was on my list of places to visit because of its' unique 1940's style.

This was our second time staying at La Jolla and we had a great time. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is awesome. It is very quiet and relaxing. The location is within walking distance to restraunts and gift shops. LaJolla has become our vacation spot. Can't wait to return.
