Our stay at the La Jolla Shores hotel was wonderful and La Jolla Shores has become one of our all time favorite destinations. We stayed in room 333 with a partial ocean view, balcony, full kitchen, vaulted ceilings and comfy bed. We loved being able to walk out the door and onto the beach where we were supplied with complimentary...

We stayed there while playing in a tennis tournament at the neighboring La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club. The hotel is right on the beach. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, responding promptly to requests for a microwave and wineglasses. The pool area and public areas are very attractive, great sunset views from rooftop patio.Can't wait to return.

Private balcony, comfortable bed & accommodating room with full kitchen. Restaurant is quite good also! Parking on premises. No need to go anywhere with beach out front and shops near by. One of our favorite getaways!

Enjoyed our stay very much. Beach access and a little downtown area were close for meals and light shopping. Shuttle service available for 5 mile radius, which we used for attending a wedding. Did not use hotel restaurant, although the menu looked interesting and the views from the dining area fantastic.

Very outdated. Value to cost poor. Staff at fr desk friendly. Rooms had a motel smell and quality of lesser valued motel that leaves light on for you. Carpet in rooms old and flat. Room appeared clean but seemed like overnight stay at airport motel. Not cheap either. A/C units are outside each room and are rusty! Very unpleasant appearing....

Great hotel, set in a pleasant Mexican style architecture, directly on the beautiful and long beach of La Jolla Shores, service and amenities more than satisfactory and excellent value for money. In short, need to go back!

Clean beach hotel right on beach in Lajolla. We did not stay in a room on the beach side, but our room had a glimpse of the beach from our balcony. Would recommend to all who enjoy being on the beach. Very reasonably priced for an October vacation.

We were very pleased with the size and the Oceanview is decent from this location. However, Hotel is older and some more rundown. We were disappointed upon arrival. The area although safe is not in easy walking distance to decent shopping or food locations. We highly recommend Pacific beach over La Jolla.

“There is a window unit for heat and air conditioning. Make sure you keep the fan on "continuous." Otherwise, it will start and stop all night which will wake you up.”
