La Jolla Shores Hotel
Ranked #11 of 24 Hotels in La Jolla
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 22, 2012

La Jolla Shores is a fabulous hotel to visit. We had the best time, everything was clean and just pure refreshing. The customer service was so GREAT. I highly recommend this hotel. The food from the restaurant isn't much to brag about, the pizza was dull and the dessert "chefs special" wasn't good at all, we ended up sending it back. The hotel manager resent us a new creme brule which was even better! My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and the hotel sent us up champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries!!! That was so thoughtful!! Our 6 month old daughter was with us as well, they had a crib with a complimentary bear for her. There were a couple of weddings the nights we were there. The music was loud when you opened your front door, but you couldn't hear anything in your room. The room is tightly sealed, which is AWESOME. Parking isn't that bad - but if you decide to pay its 16 bucks a night. We ended up paying for the weekend because it was so busy to try and find a spot on the street. The hotel was very welcoming and catered to every need we had. Overall, the hotel ITSELF was exceptional!!!!! The views breath taking! We can't wait to go back. I miss it so much already :)

Room Tip: Make sure you request an ocean view if you can. Also, Let the front staff know if you are celebratin...

My husband and I spent four nights at this resort. It is just one of two hotels located directly on the beach in San Diego. It is a beautiful place. The setting is Spanish design, with beautiful flowers and plants everywhere and large red tiles throughout the courtyard. The staff is excellent! They are friendly, courteous, and very helpful. Each request we made was given to us quickly and efficiently, from setting up beach chairs and an umbrella on the beach, to a minor request for something in our room. The pool and spa area is very nice, and we used it quite a bit. We had one dinner and two breakfasts in their restaurant, and the food was delicious.

Room Tip: This is an older hotel and the rooms reflect that. However they are by no means uncomfortable or la...

I highly recommend La Jolla Shores Hotel. Fabulous location, great atmosphere and terrific service. Can't think of a better way to start your day than breakfast in their restaurant overlooking the ocean...we were treated to watching the antics of a sea lion our last morning. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind....this is it.

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.
