I'm a native Californian who has known about this place for awhile now but never had the pleasure of staying at. Glad we did. I got to see La Jolla in a whole different view and Scripps Inn was the perfect place to do it from. I love that it's right across the street from the water. You can smell...

This lovely inn is nestled into a perfect spot in La Jolla. We were lulled to sleep by the surf which for us is paradise! The bed was comfy, the shower area very clean and nice. The room included a Keurig coffee machine and a big flat-screen TV. (We don't watch tv so I can't comment on the quality of...

Charming inn on La Jolla cove. I arrived after dark & after hours but check in was easy. Slept blissfully to the sounds of the ocean and breeze that flowed through the room. The rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. Walked along the shore the next morning. Easy access to everything, including restaurants and shopping. I highly recommend!

I decided to stay here based on the great reviews this lovely place received. I definitely made the right decision and moving forward this will be my place to go to whenever we visit La Jolla. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable and most importantly clean! The hotel is literally located within a few feet from the ocean. Left the...

Scripps Inn is as good as it is portrayed on the website. The rooms are large, comfortable and pleasingly furnished. It was rather cold at night during our stay but the heating is efficient and the simple to operate gas fireplace is cheering. The location could not be better, just above the sea on a cove with good beach access....

We stayed in a 2 bdrm suite for 1 night on a longer CA trip. The location is amazing in central La Jolla making walking to everything in town very easy; right across the street from the water too. Parking is easy too. The view seems better in some rooms than others, depending on where they sit in the Inn....

I’m leaning against the balcony on the second floor porch outside our room, feeling the ocean breeze and watching the glowing sun dip into the watery horizon. There is a grassy spit of land across the street, next to the trail dropping down to the tide pools, and upon it folding chairs have been arranged and a bower built. A...

Stayed two nights in the junior suite on a husband wife get away. The service was outstanding, Bryce (sp?) was an amazing host, accommodating and helpful with the area.

We had a large room that was not directly on the ocean yet we could still see the ocean from our window. They have a small table and 2 chairs just outside the room for a nice view as well as a patio area with furniture for a perfect, full view of the ocean. The tall gentleman who checked us...

“Definitely the Garden Room, although you are below others. Still the patio is amazing and all your own.”
  • This is what you stare at from the Garden Room. From the patio and just steps from your room.
  • The front door to the Garden Room. Its patio as well. I liked the bench facing the water better.
