Really enjoyed our stay. Innkeepers are great, rooms are spacious, walk to everything and gear the waves crashing. Not a lot of rooms so book early.

If you are looking for a nice little B&B that is not cutsy with chintz wallpaper, this is your place. Rooms are modern and nicely appointed in beach, contemporary style. Front desk service is superb. Good little cold breakfast in the morning. Best feature is accessibility to the beach and town without being right in town. We did not have a beach views from our room, but they have a wonderful patio with tables and chairs that directly faces the ocean. We had wine and cheese and watched the sun set and people watched. Oh, you are also right across the street from a famous wedding spot and we saw 2 weddings... Quite romantic! Great little spot and we'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We had Room #10 and it was very nice

Scripps Inn has a secret -- location, location, location. Ocean front scenery and the roar of the waves add value to your stay at this charming unassuming 14 room inn. Upstairs rooms have best views. LJ's attractions easily within walking distance.

Room Tip: Call Inn directly ask for Elaine.

Scripps Inn is a small privately owned Inn nestled in a cove across from the ocean in La Jolla. It was a bit pricey but worth the money because of the quality and location. We enjoyed a large room which was very clean and nicely appointed. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. Fresh croissants and muffins awaited us in the morning in the Inn lobby.

My girlfriend's mom booked the Scripps Inn for us as a birthday present. We had a great time.

I spent a lot of time trying to think about something to complain about and I finally found it. Across from the super comfortable bed next to the nice dresser, between the two windows with an ocean view and above the working fireplace complete with wood and matches was a print that, well, didn't quite speak to me.

In all seriousness, in some distant architectural history, this place probably was a motel. But now it's a very nicely renovated, well run little Inn with very friendly staff. I'd love to see their next renovation upgrade the locks to ones that are easier to use, but I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you girlfriend's Mom!

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view

We had a one night spring break at this hotel. It was wonderful to sleep with the surf sounds and wake up to ocean smells. The B&B is located right in the best walking spots of La Jolla. It was not cheap but it was a great location, large, clean room.

We were welcomed by Elaine and Vanessa to this beautiful Inn with breathtaking views of the Pacific. Both ladies were helpful and gave us restaurant suggestions for dinner along with a map of the village. Several restaurants and shops are within walking distance. The room was spacious and contemporary. We opened windows and could hear the ocean waves-very peaceful. A relaxing and beautiful place to getaway to. We'll be back!
