"Got to get away!"
The staff was so awesome here. They took care of all of our needs. Made great recomendations of where to eat, where to go to see attractions. Helped us move to a much better room upon request. The room we had was on the ground floor as we requested. But it was right by the elevator. Which was a very noisey place. They moved us to a very nice beach front […] room. The cleaning staff was extremely accommodating to our needs. More coffee packets, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome location on the beach!!"
Perfect location. Never needed our car everything was in walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Showing its age"
Staff does a great job and the upkeep of the hotel is good but it's getting a little "long in the tooth". Not a great value for the money. Wish la jolla had a newer beach hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Oceanside with a Kitchenette"
We booked the Deluxe Oceanside w/ a Kitchenette. It was very beautiful. Room came with Kingsize bed and a pull out couch. Kitchen area was very nice. Saved a lot on food. The view was worth the cost. Going out on the balcony is the best part about this room. You can sit out there and watch the sunset. We kept the sliding door open at night so we could […] listen to the waves at night.

"Enjoyable first time experience"
The hotel was inviting. Staff was great. Anything you needed they were there for you. Restaurant was over priced!! Walls and floors need more insulation to reduce the noise from other guests. We could hear everything from walking and talking from other guests on the floors above and below and beside us. The beach was not kept clean. Sea weed all over […] the beach that was filled with flies. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach"
Great location if you want to stay right on the beach. But it is noisy and crowded since most of the kayak and other tours launch here. Restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. Our kids loved walking right out the door onto the beach and playing ping pong in the hotel courtyard. Room was a bit small for a family of four but we only stayed one […] night so no big deal.

"Can't Wait to Return!"
The proximity to the beach, boardwalk and park is amazing. Our view of the beach from our room was wonderful! We felt safe, secure and relaxed everywhere on the property. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The shuttle service was such a pleasure. All of the services offered where wonderful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location....that is all."
The hotel location is amazing, service is inexistent........at front desk during checking no-one to be found.....staff seating in the back in the office. The rooms in the third floor was great, large, and clean, the view was beautiful on the beach. Overall the property is in need of some serious needs of renovation. But the location helps for the lack […] of service and condition. When checking-in the front desk agent a guy welcomed us by " Can I help you" ........not very professional.

Great place. Staff was outstanding. Shuttle service around La Jolla a great touch.Great location. Better for families with young kids than it is for couples. The pool area is loud with lots of kids.Aside from that it is a beautiful place in a gorgeous area.Genuine Expedia guest review
everyone was friendly and helpful. I would go back againGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for beach lovers"
It's a great hotel where you can relax. Our room had a very nice view of the ocean. However, the room was very close to the restaurant and their quiet time is 10 PM. If you travel with kids who go early to bed, the noise may be an inconvenience. The staff was very responsive and polite. I will go again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach."
We really loved being right on the beach. We had a corner room with 2 walls of glass. Each had a sliding glass door leading onto a large deck. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, but hotel could use updating"
On the plus side, you can't beat this location or the surrounding neighborhood. Restaurant food expensive but excellent (sit by window for best view of ocean). Normally expensive place to stay. Only reason we stayed here is because we got a good deal on hotels.com. There were some shortcomings, as this is obviously an old hotel: Mold in the bathroom […] (underneath soap holder); bathroom tiles needed caulking or replacement; staff often not to be found at front desk. Per day parking expensive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for family"
Great amenities, located right next to the ocean, lots to do in La Jolla, cute shops/restaurantsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach!"
For casual comfort away from home this is the ideal getaway. The beach is always full of activity - from kyaking, snorkeling, swimming, surfing, or long walks along the beach, or just hanging out on the balcony - it is the perfect place to decompress!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel right on the ocean"
What a gem! We had the best time at La Jolla Shores - right on the ocean and only a mile from all the wonderful restaurants and shops of downtown La Jolla. A charming place with excellent staff, very comfortable beds, and the sound of the ocean waves right outside your window. There is a nice pool with hot tub and a restaurant facing the ocean. I highly […] recommend the La Jolla Shores Hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great for hopitality"
The staff was helpful and we loved the complimentary van. Staff went out of their way to be accomodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel on the beach. Good amenities great restaraunt.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK but not great considering the price!"
Had a bit of a musty smell and wasn't in top notch shape as handle and lock on sliding glass door was broken.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice place. That suited our family of 5 very well. Very good and freiendly service.. Very price worthy. I would love to go there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was great. Couple of things that would be helpful. There was always a line for coffee in the morning because it takes so long to make a cup and the reservoir runs low quickly. I felt guilty making people wait while I had to pour a second cup for my wife in the room. Another coffee maker would be nice. Hot tub is too small for the use. Love the location. […] Service was great. People were nice Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very good hotel"
great hotel. high quality and ambiance and also good for kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful beach, and you can't beat the location."
Not much to complain about here...the room was a little small, but directly faced the beach. Be aware that the hotel's beach area is right where all of the neighborhood kayak tours set up, so there is some additional traffic. The restaurant was surprisingly excellent. A short walk south on the beach to some great tide pools, and to the north sits the […] UCSD Scripps Institute campus (great lunch counter on the bluff overlooking the surf). Hotel pool wasn't that great, but otherwise we had a great time here and would return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location -- underwhelming accomodations"
Location was great -- proximity to beach and playground. Easy access to San Diego attractions and great restaurants in La Jolla. Property was tired and just felt a little grimy. The overall rating of o.k. is accurate -- it wasn't great and it wasn't horrible -- just o.k.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good place for family."
The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgable. They were also very accommodating. The rooms around the pool were noisy because of all the children in the pool area. Overall the stay was very good - clean rooms, laundry facilities, kitchenettes and right on the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not especially tranquil, but enjoyable"
Great location right on the beach but be aware--- this is a very active beach. Dozens of kayak groups heading out daily right in front of hotel. Also the garden/pool view rooms can be quite noisy especially when there is a private event taking place with music. The staff was professional and helpful. Lots of dining choices just a block away. We enjoyed […] our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ideal location and family friendly"
Ideal location, would definitely stay there again. Very family friendly, nice pool, great restaurant and ideal location to beach. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for families"
The hotel is right on the beach. It has an internal courtyard that is quiet with a ping pong table. There is a park next to the beach with showers, toilets and playground. There is shopping and restaurants within a couple of blocks. Sea World is 15 minutes away!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good hotel for a beach getaway"
We stayed for a week in late March. The hotel is beautiful and well-maintained, and our room was quite nice. There were plenty of activities on the beach and in town to keep us busy, but the beach was also very nice and a pleasant place to relax. Hotel staff were very friendly and responsive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect beachfront hotel"
The location is everything, situated on the beach in La Jolla, near restaurants and shops. The staff is very helpful and accommodating, setting up beach chairs, arranging the shuttle bus to and from town and giving information on sights and attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great weekend getaway"
perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway. Room was very nice and clean and filled with many extras that made our stay feel even better. We had a room with a coastline view and private balcony. Views were great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Inaccurate Cover Photo"
It was too pricey for the age of the room décor and bedding. From the cover photo I was led to believe that I could walk out of my room and be on the beach but this is not so. The food at the restaurant was excellent and the hotel staff were very friendly. Would stay there again if they lower their prices or do room innovations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay on the beach"
Our kids wanted to stay on the beach while we were in the area. The La Jolla Shores had good reviews and we found an awesome deal for a coastal view on Expedia ASAP deals so decided to give it a try. This is an older hotel but in really nice condition and it's literally right on the beach. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. They had a roll […] away in our room before we got out of the lobby and later brought a microwave to our room as the room didn't have one. We were able to find on street parking within 2 blocks each time we left and returned so didn't pay the daily garage fee. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good value, great location, good for getaways"
Great location, great service, showing its age but good condition overall. Try to get a room upstairs away from the pool, since this can be noisy-- especially when teenagers are out of school on Spring break. The jalousies for ventilation on pool side let in every sound. The hotel's best feature is their bar overlooking the surf, beach, kayaking and […] snorkeling classes-- Great view, best view in town. But order wine since their house wine is fine but the 20-something bartenders don't know how to mix the classics (our Kioke Coffee and Old-fashioned were terrible but the Joya house Chardonnay was excellent). Don't bother with their expensive garage parking, there is plenty of parking on the nearby side streets, you might have to cruise a few minutes to find a spot but there are few restricted areas (white and green curbs are 15 minutes, all others are unlimited). Also skip their Shores Restaurant since there is a wide variety of restaurants up Ave de la Playa adjacent-- try Voulez Vous for great breakfast (especially the Eggs Benedict) and Barbarella for lunch or dinner. Yummmmm.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My husband & I came for a winter get away and loved staying here. The hotel is older but they do a great job of cleaning and maintaining it. The location is perfect if you want to walk on the beach and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. We found a great place to eat and also enjoyed the breakfast at the hotel. Lots of seals, dolphins and a few whale sigh […] tings. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Booked the coastal view room for one night, the last night of a 4 night getaway. I almost wish I booked all 4 nights there. The view from just the coastal view rooms are awesome. We could see a good portion of La Jolla beach as well as the hillside from the bed. Very well kept rooms with lots of space. The restaurant is very nice with a great selection […] of food and drinks, and the views are amazing from it as well. Will definitely be going back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice place to stay"
The hotel has the potential to be very, very nice, but struggles a little bit with technical issues here and there, such as door locks and elevators. The location and view are gorgeous, however. The La Jolla Suite is great for families.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The best location in La Jolla"
We had a beachfront room which came with its own seagull, Earl, and his sidekick,Melvyn, so we were never without something staring into our room. The hotel has been around a long time which explains both its fantastic location and its rather dark, dated ambiance. The room was clean and comfortable and it was nice to have a safe available in the room. […] The shower was very good, although as is common with hotels of this vintage, I wish the shower/WC room was brighter and scrubbed more. I was actually somewhat impressed with how quickly the exhaust fan removed the steam as we had four people staying in the room and they all needed to shower. This is my favorite part of La Jolla, but it does not have the restaurants and shopping of the village area. However, a nearby coffee shop had the essentials and was a short walk away.

"Great location, Poor manager."
The overall location of this hotel is unbeatable. The price is a little steep for oceanfront rooms. The condition of the hotel is a little worn with renovation needed. The manager (David) needs to be replaced with someone more competent and more geared toward customer service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"La Jolla Cove beats La Jolla Shores"
I'm more familiar with La Jolla Cove, so I was surprised that La Jolla Shores was not really within walking distance. I prefer the La Jolla Cove since there are more restaurants and activities. If you're looking for a quiet beach getaway, this is the place for you. It's charming, the restaurant is good and the beach is not bad. For little kids, this […] hotel is great because there's a nice park near the hotel. Overall, a good stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love the Beach"
Truly enjoyed the hotel and top notch customer service. No movie rentals in room and a longer walk to downtown La Jolla shopping were only down side.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay in La Jolla"
The hotel was great. Staff was friendly. Was upgraded from King to King kitchenette which was great! I didn't need the kitchenette but it would've great if I would've been prepared to use it. The walls seem to be thin though. I could clearly hear other room's tvs among other things. Paid $16 to park in their underground parking garage for one night. […] Spa closed at 10, but hotel staff let us stay a little bit longer and weren't rude about us staying past 10. Bed was comfortable. Overall, the stay in the hotel was great.

"Perfect for a beach getaway"
Everything was great. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The only negative was that the floormat in the bathroom of the room was soaked and the bath tub took a while to drain. Other than that, the location was amazing - close to kayak, paddle board, and surf board rentals and tours and restaurants, too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for beach lovers"
The fact that the hotel is low key and right on the beach suited out needs. We love the low key feel of the low key feel! enjoyed the restaurants walking distance from the hotel. The rooms were very spacious and although simple in decor it was perfectly functional!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Terrific. Clean room, excellent service, amenities like happy hour and top restaurant facility remains A+, always a perfect place to be when visiting La Jolla.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

This place is greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Whales, dolphins, and sea lions, Oh My!"
Great location. Saw a whale from our balcony. Great restaurants within walking distance (try the happy hour from 6-8 at the Marine Room, just south on the beach). Will stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Place to Stay on the beach in La Jolla"
La Jolla is a nice place to be when visiting the San Diego area if you want to be away from the city and at the ocean. There are many good restaurants, galleries and shops. I have stayed at the La Jolla Shores Hotel many times, one of only two hotels in La Jolla right on the beach. There are good places to eat and places to arrange kayaking tours within […] a pleasant walk. The place is not luxurious but attractive, comfortable beds with an ocean front restaurant. Good for families. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
