"Great San Diego trip!!!!"
Me and my daughter wanted a beach vacation in San Diego!!! I went to Expedia and did a lot of research. The la jolla shores hotel,kept coming up. So I went to the guest reviews and decided to book my stay there. I could not have been more pleased. The whole experience was fantastic!!!! Staff, food, beach, amenities were 100percent. Free wifi, shuttle […] service!! I love the la jolla shores and will definitly go back and stay there. George's restuarant was great!! Alfonso's in la jolla village was very good Mexican food too!!! Loved the whole trip!!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and service"
Wonderful location right on the beach, excellent service, nice rooms except they need better air conditioning. A small window air conditioner placed in the corner by the beds near the floor does not circulate the air. Also there was no cross ventilation unless one opened the entry door to the room. Rooms were quiet and well cleaned and the room was […] great otherwise. I would return again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for family"

"Weekend wedding in paradise."
Loved the location. The beach was gorgeous. The resturant food was very good and service excellent. Our room did not have a view or the ocean but was fine. I liked the balcony settings for each room which provided a nice place to relax. The Pool and Hot tub was an excellent site for having fun with the wedding party and guests the day after the wedding. Lots […] of activities for those who like the ocean. Such as Kayaking and surfing. Cons. The upstairs banquet room had the air conditioning stop working during the reception. Thank goodness for the balcony and tables there which provided both a view of the sunset and relief from the heat. Archaic cable television in the Hotel. Gotta have a sports package if its football season. Many of the rooms needed maintenance on the sliding doors and screen doors. In a couple of different rooms the screen doors came out of the runners. Aside from those minor cons the venue was absolutely perfect for my daughters wedding. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I went to the la La Jolla Shores to celebrate my birthday. Although, I live in Carlsbad and have lived in San Diego County all my life, I had never been there before. What a nice surprise!!! we were upgraded to an Ocean-Front room. I felt like I was right on the sand in La Jolla. The room was spacious and very clean. The hotel provides chairs and umbrellas, […] so we didn't have to bring them to the beach. The hotel staff was extremely friendly. I have been to many 5 star resorts and I can't imagine a better beach experience. To top it off, the hotel sent up strawberries and champagne for my birthday. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"La Jolla Shores Hotel"
Great location and very nice room. La Jolla is a great place, and there are all kinds of things to do right in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice La Jolla & beach experience!"
Our family (9) liked this hotel. It has a great Cali layout and design of an older hotel. This is a well kept building. Convenience to the beach is unsurpassed. Staff was very friendly and helpful. A bigger menu of simple foods, kids cafe food or a vegan menu would round this place out. Parking is pricy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great family lodging"

"great quick weekend getaway"
I've been completely satisfied every time I've stayed here. Always get the beach-front room, beautiful view, very convenient to beach, parking and shopping. Can't say a single bad thing about service or staff; always helpful and courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon where we stayed at the La Jolla Shores Hotel. Upon arrival, we were informed that bed size was based on a "first come, first serve" basis. So even though I booked a king size bed through Expedia, my husband and I were told that there were no king beds available & we were put in a terrible room with two […] FULL size beds (we were told they were queen size beds- they were not). After checking our reservation through Expedia & the hotel's website, my husband and I found that NOWHERE did it say that bed size was first come first serve. My husband called Expedia, who then called the hotel. Expedia called us back and told us that we could possibly switch to another hotel or stay in the room we were in and the hotel promised us complimentary amenities. My husband went out to talk to the guy at the front desk who told my husband that the free amenity that was discussed was a free bottle of champagne- THAT'S IT. Mind you, the entire time leading up to this honeymoon I was told by friends and family that we would probably be upgraded and given loads of free stuff simply because we were on our honeymoon. Instead, we were DOWNGRADED. Finally, the guy at the front desk moved us to a room with a king size bed (that he did not mention previously). The room was better than the original but still not great. We did stay because the hotel was in a nice area. However, clearly the hotel catered to families and could care less about us honeymooners.

"Great hotel for all if you like or have kids."
it was amazing vacation spot kids friendly. Photos on site don't do justice with this place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family friendly, on the beach"
We just returned from our almost week-long stay at the La Jolla Shores Hotel. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with the hotel and would definitely recommend it to families (5 year old and 7 month old) looking for a nice hotel RIGHT on the beach and close to all the attractions. My only major gripe with the trip was the check-in time. We arrived […] from a long flight a little after 1pm and were forced to sit around waiting for a room to be cleaned. I do realize that the check-in time is 4pm and we did get our room about 3pm so it's not their fault, just wanted to point it out. This hotel is not super fancy. The rooms could use a bit of updating but the view from the coastal view room was awesome. The rooms were very clean and the maid service was fantastic, except a little stingy with the soap. The pool was also awesome. It was heated and a nice break from the cooler ocean. Oh, did I mention that this hotel is right on the beach? Literally twenty feet from the beach. There are plenty of family-friendly food options within a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Overall, we loved this place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic Stay in La Jolla"
Fantastic area! There is a village within walking distance with surf shops and restaurants. The hotel restaurant is very nice . It is a bit on the expensive side but you get to dine right on the beach so it is worth it. The hotel itself is very nice. One problem with the room was the air conditioners are very old window units that took a while to cool […] the room down. The first night we stayed it was a bit hot in the room. Other than that it was a great stay. The employees are very professional and you get umbrellas and chairs that are set up everyday at no extra charge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for families"
Great hotel! The only complaint I have is that our air con didnt work and it was HOT at night. We slept with the slidder open but there were a few people having a very serious and lengthy convo by the pool outside our window that was really annoying.....Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for a family with young kids"
Stayed 5 nights with my wife and two sons, who are both under 3 years old. This hotel is very kid friendly, with a kids pool, as well as a kids playground right next to the hotel on the beach. The staff was very accommodating and you cannot beat the location, waking up with a view of the ocean every morning. It's about 30 minutes south of Legoland,15 […] minutes north of the zoo, and 10 minutes north of Seaworld, so it was the perfect location for all of the activities that we planned for the week. There are likely other hotels in La Jolla that are nicer, especially for couples looking for romance and style, but this hotel is perfect for families with young kids. We'll be back next summer for sure. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A bit of room ware. Parking for $16/night was a surprise as I thought I had read it was included in the room fee. Elevator wasn't working well, and we actually ended up stuck in it! Staff was very gracious. There are more affordable family resteraunts nearby than the expensive hotel dining room.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location! Beautiful views, friendly environment and convenient parking garage. Overall family friendly setting.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location but subpar hotel"
If you're used to staying at a Westin, this hotel is not for you. The place is old and the amenities are lacking. Although if you're looking for a beachfront hotel, your options are limited. Simply put, this hotel offers Holiday Inn EXPRESS quality for Westin price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel, reasonable pricing."
I stayed there with my two teenage sons and we were very comfortable. The hotel really is right on the beach so a alot of sand got tracked in to the room and was vacuumed up every day. They are very accomodating and provided a rollaway bed with 10 minutes notice without any extra charge. They also have complimentary beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. […] My one complaint was how much noise we could hear. The walls are pretty thin and it seemed lots of folks were regularly dropping big, heavy things starting about 6a.m. (Probably scuba divers now that I think about it...) LOTS of scuba divers in and around this hotel so if that's your gig this would be a great place to stay. I'd recommend it for most folks looking for a pretty nice place at a very reasonable price. Oh, we only ate one meal in the restaurant, breakfast. Food was mediocre, service a little worse. Great burgers, pizza and Italian within walking distance - head out. Walking distance is important because the parking garage is cramped. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beachfront bliss with outstanding service."
This is a great find, particularly for families. My husband and I stayed here with our three small children. It was an excellent spot for us - mornings on the beach, afternoons at the pool, and dinnertime playtime at the Kellogg Park playground across the street. I was unexpectedly and particularly impressed by the excellent service and the outstanding […] food in the restaurant. The staff was warm and accommodating without being stuffy. The service really hit the perfect note for this hotel. Only home a few hours, and I'm already planning our next trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Stay at La Jolla Shores Hotel"
Awesome location on the beach within walking distance of many local eateries as well as the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. The Shores restaurant is a bit too pricey for the quality of food provided. We highly suggest eating at Pappalulus a couple of blocks away. Huge portions, great food at reasonable prices!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach, but not great service!"
This hotel was quite pricey, but being in La Jolla and right on the beach, that's understandable. What really surprised me was how unhelpful and almost rude, most of the wait staff were. I expected top-notch service, but that's not what we got. Most times they acted like you were disturbing them by asking to be waited on. And it wasn't just us they […] treated that way. I heard it several times with other people. And it took a very, very long time to get food. Sort of a disappointing stay....but it was right on the beach, had a clean pool, and was within walking distance of a few restaurants and shops. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and value"

Staff and service was a little weak, but the location made up for it. If you paln on staying at this hotel be prepared not to get your room unitl 4:00 PM. day of check in. Great beach Try the restraunt Osteria Romantica - very very goodGenuine Expedia guest review

"Decent place to stay in La Jolla."
Overall the hotel was great. However it sure could use some TLC. A couple things that drove us nuts was how the toilet paper holder and the screen door to the balcony keep falling off everytime you touched them. One more negative note is that the hotel charges you $16 a day to park in the parking garage which is also open to the public.Genuine Expedia guest review
We LOVED it here. Would definately return. Great view, friendly staff, beautiful area!Genuine Expedia guest review
Wow, the La Jolla Shores Hotel was great! They have an amazing, attentive staff that was happy to accomodate all of our requests -- awesome customer service. Lovely beach, next to a nice park, and even shuttle service to town! It's not fancy, but it has a beautiful fountain, nice pool & hot tub and the location can't be beat. Fish tacos for $6 at happy […] hour were great! There's a small mini mart about a block up and a pizza place on the next street. We WILL be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a room for 6, but great for less people."
The standard room in this hotel does NOT sleep 6! We purchased this room on Expedia as a room for 6. It does NOT have a fold out couch and only 1 cot will be allowed due to fire code. It was a long drawn out process but it finally got fixed. After this first issue we had a great time. The hotel staff was mostly good, friendly, and helpful. We had 2 […] rooms both street side. The one in the front of the hotel was quieter than the one on the side street next to the hotel (beach access). This room was very noisy late at night and again early morning, sounded like the big dumpster access was right there for the hotel restaurant, and trash trucks. The rooms are a little outdated, but very clean. Nice big refrigerator easily fit a lot of snacks. Nice balconies overlooking the ping pong tables. Great beach access, walk right out and onto the beach! Towels, chairs, umbrellas available free of charge. Nice warm pool/hot tub. Hot tub was small, but the kiddie pool was nice. Plenty of street parking. We were there a week and never struggled to find parking in the evenings when we returned after our outings. Easy drive to Sea World, the Zoo, and many beaches.

"La Jolla Shores Hotel"
Wedding took place on beach in front of hotel with reception in garden court and dinner outside in another sheltered area. Great service. Wonderful experienceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Warm service - fabulous food."
They took exceptional care of us for our 4th annual visit - and even upgraded us without our asking. We love coming here every summer! It's right on the beach, the nearby shops are always a stop, and we found out this year that the food at the hotel restaurant was exceptional! I can't remember having a better breakfast - even if it was pricey. However, […] everything in La Jolla is, so be prepared. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"lots of fun in la jolla shores!"
Spent 6 nights here with my husband and two 5 year olds. Even though we had a "garden room", we had a nice balcony with a view of the ocean and park. The room was really spacious and convenient to a few shops/restaurants in La Jolla and there was a nice size fridge in the room so we could stock up on a few groceries. You can't beat the location, being […] right on the beach. It's a nice, clean beach with restrooms and was fun to hunt for little shells and crabs and watch all of the surfers. Easy access to all attractions. Seemed like the hot tub needed to be cleaned a bit more, but the kids really had a great time in the pool #and hot tub to quickly warm up#. Pool had gradual steps into a 3.5 ft pool out to a 8.5 ft pool, so lots of families having fun with kids of all ages. There was a small wading pool for toddlers. Our room was clean...had to request soap/shampoo/cond even when we were out and they forgot soap, so I dug some up in my luggage and they didn't really wipe down the tub each day, so I did that myself before the kids' baths....but not a big deal as the rest of the room was great. It was still clean and they were always quick to swoop in and clean as soon as we stepped out. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"LaJolla Gem for Tourists!"
Hotel has been updated many times and current state is fine, other than the sliding glass door was a bear to open and close. Services were beyond 5 star, clean, friendly, prompt, extensive. Guests can ask for beach chairs and umbrella placement on the beach, and restaurant staff will circulate among their beach chair-holders and take a food order. How […] awesome is that! Neighborhood is condos with cozy small retail, market, food vendors, and six kayak businesses. Next door park had families playing and barbecuing, while scuba divers based their prep on tarps in the park and were interesting to watch. The pool area was clean and the parents maintained happy, well mannered children. Again, poolside food service was greatly appreciated. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was VERY accomodating and the hotel/grounds was very clean and well kept. The only thing I wish the hotel would do is comb the beach to get rid of some of the seaweed, etc and make it appear cleaner.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything! The staff was excellent in all aspects of our stay! This is a fabulous place for families!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great long weekend stay"
The hotel was amazing, with a nice clean atmosphere. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The only bad thing i can say was the restaurant was way over priced for decent food. on a personal note the bed was a little hard for my taste but again that's a personal factor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great family Getaway!"
Pros: Nice open air rooms and facilities. Quiet, and relaxing environment perfect if you are looking for a nice place to take a family with young kids. Comfortable beds, chairs and a large flat-screen TV. Room, Hotel, and La Jolla Shores area are even nicer than pictured; this is one of those places where pictures cannot do it justice. Views are absolutely […] breath taking. Great location; only a few minutes from downtown La Jolla, and Pacific Beach. Balboa Park and downtown is only 15-20 minutes away. Easy access to the 5. even on the cooler days, the pool was kept at a comfortable temperature. Jacuzzi felt great after swimming in the chilly Pacific. Cons: -Parking under the hotel was very convenient however I think one parking spot should be included in the price of the room. -No complementary breakfast or coffee in the mornings. Not expecting a free breakfast buffet, but a cup of coffee and some fruit would be nice. They did have a coffee pot in the room, but it seemed like a waste to make a pot when I only drink one cup in the morning. -Beach was not as clean as I had expected. I didn't encounter much trash, but there was an abundance of seaweed. In front of the tennis club just to the south of La Jolla Shores Hotel, the sand was raked and kept clean. At the rate charged per night the hotel should do a better job maintaining the beach in front of their property. Overall We were very happy and plan on coming back!

"It's all about location"
Even after reading other reviews I expected more out of the hotel itself, especially given how pricey it is. It's really not that great. The only reason to stay is for the location, since it's right by the beach (although my room unfortunately looked out on a kayak tour staging area). And even though I know it's a pretty standard thing to do, it was […] really annoying that they charged extra for parking. Won't be staying there again, and I wouldn't recommend it either.

"Gotta go here again."
Slightly pricier than we normally spend for our family of 5. However it was worth the money. Great service and very, very nice accommodations as well as surrounding neighborhoods.Genuine Expedia guest review
La Jolla Shores is wonderful. I honestly have no complaints. My family and I have stayed at numerous nice hotels in SD and La Jolla Shores is my favorite. The location can't be beat and the view was outstanding. I will definitely go again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great view the ocean"
we had the best view of the ocean. the room was nice and clean and they had great serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
Great experience. Family friendly. The 8 1/2' deep pool was a nice treat. Beach right outside the window. Will be back again. Be sure and check out the caves and harbor seals just off of Prospect St, my 6 and 8 year old boys enjoyed this area about as much as Seaworld and Legoland.Genuine Expedia guest review
