The La Jolla Shores Hotel is a wonderful property to stay at, especially if you are traveling for business. I was able to check in to my room early on a beautiful sunny day and hang out at the beach, directly behind the hotel. The room size was large and the patio. The front desk staff was friendly, the restaurant...

My husband and I booked an ocean view room with kitchen for our 26th anniversary...at one of the only beachfront hotels in La Jolla. This was our first visit. We loved the location, the room, the bed was comfortable, the staff was uniformly friendly, informative, helpful. They provided us with chairs, towels and an umbrella to sit on the public...

The location was great. Right on the beach. The hotel is older and so is the clientele. I asked for a crib in my room and they noted it but forgot it. I had to call help desk and wait for it to be dropped off. The service at the Shores restaurant was terrible. We never got our drinks, they...

This was the second time that I have stayed at La Jolla Shores, and I plan to return. It's right on the beach and they provide free towels, chairs, and umbrellas (they even plant the umbrella for you). They also have a heated pool. The staff is friendly, and if there is a problem, they sort it out immediately. The...

We booked this hotel for our last night in San Diego. La Jolla is only 10 minutes from the San Diego Airport. When we mentioned to the concierge that it was our last night in California and also our 30th wedding anniversary, he upgraded our room to "ocean view" suite and simply said, "Happy Anniversary" The room was spacious and...

We came tonight and we were turned away cause they were going to close in 10 minutes. I work in hospitality and I have never turned away anyone even if they were 1 minute before I closed. It is very disappointing been turned away from a hotel like this. I just hope that the hotel guest don't get turned away.

We paid dearly for a room overlooking the beach, but our room had balcony that was recessed about five feet behind the adjacent one and there was a tall privacy screen that obstructed our view down the beach. We could see only the public loading directly in front of the room where kayaks embarked on tours ... noisy early in...

This was our second visit to La Jolla Shores Hotel. We traveled with our two young children (2 and 4) and my parents. You seriously CANNOT beat the location or the amenities offered at this hotel. We will definitely come back again. We arrived at the hotel early (11:30AM) because of our early flight into SAN. Check-in is typically 3PM...

Fabulous old school service and comfort. Once there, no need to leave. On best beach in San Diego. Quiet, elegant and great food. Short walk to beach town, but far from crowds and stores. Have been here before and will come again and again.

“Third floor best views. North side can be too close to public park.”

“When we were there, we overlooked the pool, so it was a little noisy, I don't think that I ever looked down at the pool area to find it empty. It was a Holiday week, so I am sure that that had something to do with it. Nice view from the room otherwise.”
