Just got back from La Jolla Shores Hotel and had an excellent visit! Hotel was perfect for our family of 4. It was early in the season so it wasn't too crowded. We got ocean view seating at every meal and even saw dolphins at breakfast! The beach service was fantastic. Our chairs, umbrella and towels were ready when asked and it was such a luxury to not have to bring those items on our trip. I will definitely return here. The convenience was wonderful. Aside from the beach being right out the front door, anything else you need is within a 3-5 min. walk. And, La Jolla village is just a 5 min drive. Although, I think the hotel might have a shuttle there if you don't have your own car. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ocean shore rooms are just as good as a direct ocean view room and more reasonably priced. Top floo...

If your just looking for a place to crash with a beautiful view, or if your the kind of person that doesn't need the comfort of down, modern amenities and fashionable furniture, then take a look at this hotel. This place is NOT for me. The walls and carpet looked dirty. The plants are brown and dying, the rooms are very noisy, the beds are far from comfortable or inviting. But the view is amazing. I knew there was a reason there were only photos of the area and the view and non of the hotel room, but the price was much lower than the other hotels I looked at so I bit. Originally we booked three nights, but moved to a much nicer (and more expensive) hotel after one night. Even in the so-called 2-bedroom suite (which is nothing more than unlocking the door between a very small one bed room and ours), you could hear people walking down the halls. We have two dogs so our choices were limited, but I want to feel some luxury when I'm on vacation. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Other than the view, the location is excellent. You can walk to great restaurants, the ocean, the coves, shopping, etc. The location is fabulous.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a view of the ocean.

Stayed here many times. Got an excellent deal for 8 night stay with expedia. Restaurant food is a bit samey but the views make up for it.

I had a blast staying here. I got the La Jolla Suite and the view from the balcony is fantastic. The hotel staff are friendly and took care of my requests promptly. However, I was a bit uncomfortable with the cleanliness of the hotel. I found a bra behind the dresser and some sands on my bed sheet. That made me wonder if their housekeeping crew cleaned the whole place thoroughly. Nonetheless it was a good stay and we all had an awesome time.

We are here at the La Jolla Shores to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. Will McBride at the front desk is the most personable Front Desk Manager we have ever encountered. (and we have traveled a lot!) We were given a room with an ocean view, recommendations of where to dine, (Azul Steakhouse at La Jolla) we received a free entre' and dessert there because we were recommended by Will, and then I just opened the door to a bottle of bubbly with a handwritten card to celebrate our Anniversary. Wow!! This place is the best. The people, the view, the location, everything is AMAZING!!! They even have a courtesy van that took us to the restaurant and stopped a minute for a few groceries on the way back. Life is good. Thanks for everything!!! This place ROCKS!!!

A trip to San Diego would not be complete without a stay at this hotel. We have been returning for 25 years. The bar and restaurant are front row seats for the gorgeous sunsets. This hotel is one of the few in La Jolla where you can walk out of your room and be right on the beach. There are some good restaurants including "The Shores" in a two block walk. The area is very safe. The hotel staff is nice and helpful and there is a courtesy van available to take you to town. The rooms are large and quiet. This hotel provides a very relaxing stay!

Room Tip: We like the ground floor garden view in front of the pool. It is the best view (pool and ocean) and...
