Right on the beach. You can walk right out. Otherwise it's a nice but a bit faded hotel. There's a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. I've stayed here a lot and will do so again. Be aware of major street construction nearby

We enjoyed the location immensely - being able to walk to shops and restaurants was great. We thought the hotel spaces could have been better. The mattress/sleeping was okay. Instead of room service we'd encourage you to enjoy local places to eat.

We came with friends and family for a surf competition in December 2016 and had a really lovely stay. Breakfasts are fantastic and the service is really good. Rooms are enormous and beds very comfortable. The hotel is in a great location, you can walk to town and it is right on the beach. The pool is small but sufficient...

The La Jolla Shores Hotel is a classic that dates back as far as the 1970s when I first visited La Jolla. It is situated on the ocean and as the photo reveals below, the dining room has a wonderful view of the ocean. The staff are friendly, and their youth and enthusiasm makes up for any lapse in service....

The La Jolla Shores is one of those venerable properties that seems to have been there forever, but never goes out of fashion. The property shows its age while never seeming worn - no small accomplishment for a property that literally hugs the ocean. At high tide, the water licks at the promenade wall. Great views, great location, and a...

Out of date, designed with little privacy, The maid woke us at 8:15 am on a Sat. despite having the privacy please on the door. The hallways are all tile and you can hear every cart that rattles by. No convenient plugs.

My title describes it in a few words . The location is superb , right on one of the nicest beaches in the area . Walkable, clean and safe . The rooms especially but the entire property is very dated . It insults argue intelligence of a traveller to charge around $ 300 per night and provide a room that...

What a heavenly location. We had rooms facing the ocean. To hear the ocean waves and to wake up to the ocean was such a treat. I highly recommend experiencing this beautiful property. I felt like I was in Hawaii. The staff were warm and accommodating. Special thanks to Jenifer.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit! I agree that hearing the waves from your room is a highlight (and so relaxing). I've shared your comments with Jenifer, and we all hope you have the opportunity to visit again soon.

We have stayed here a lot the last 20 yrs. Perhaps the best thing about this property is its location to the beach. Literally step out of the Hotel and onto the beach, there are few places to do this and the La Jolla Shores Beach is spectacular, and great for people watching and walking , jogging, running, or lolygagging....
