This hotel is on the beach, you can walk to a market or local dining, from the room balcony watch the diving and kayak groups ready themselves. The rooms are not fancy, like the 1960s, but the service is great -on the beach, too. This is a very good hotel to feel "on vacation."

We absolutely loved our stay here. Our stay was in May and the beach was not crowded at all and the pool was warm. The hotel is a tad dated, but still classy. Underground garage parking is an extra fee. At the the restaurant attached we watched dolphins swim among the scuba divers and surfers. We traveled with our 6... More

The room was dirty. There was food on the carpet from the last guests, cobwebs on the ceiling and the sheets had stains and cuts/tears. The furniture was stained and needs to be tossed out and replaced.

Great location! This hotel is steps from La Jolla shores/beach where you'll be able to swim, kayak and surf. Note that some of the other hotels are next to La Jolla cove which has a rocky shore rather than a sandy beach. The hotel is older but the staff is great and the room spotless and clean. The walls are... More

We have stayed here many times because of the location near downtown La Jolla but on a lovely beach next to a park looking up the coast to Torrey Pines. Great rooms and many with amazing views and the neighborhood and beach are highly walkable. Expert staff capable of solving most problems.

After reading other reviews And booking La Jolla Shores I would say by far this was the best place on the beach with as many great amenities. We did the adjoining room with the kitchen and found it to be perfect for our needs. Rooms were comfortable and clean. We will definitely come back.

This place is very dear to me. I grew up staying here with my family when it had a different name and continue to visit. The rooms have been updated but the walls are thin and a little bump next door resonates through our room. I made it difficult to sleep. It will not stop me or my family from... More

Great location on the beach and close to town. Nice small restaurants and shops very close, You don't need a car, you can walk everywhere. Great staff-very friendly, hot tub tended to get a bit crowded as they only have one and it gets heavily used.

“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.”

“If you aren't going to have a room with an ocean view - stay elsewhere - as the cost without an ocean view just isn't worth it and you can find a much nicer hotel in the village of La Jolla (La Valencia) or at La Jolla Hotel which has been upgraded very nicely.”
