Amazing hidden gem in the middle of islamorada. We really enjoyed getting to know the other travelers and watching sunset from their dock. Rates are affordable with great deco moon where to swim and fish.

The word Oasis truly describes the entire experience of staying at La Jolla. We were lucky enough to be celebrating two birthdays on our stay in mid-September and it's like we had the whole place to ourselves. The water La Jolla is one is absolutely gorgeous and they keep the back looking tropical and relaxing. Location is amazing, right across...

I stayed in unit H Sept 09-12 2016 and loved this 1940's built motel. I've been up and down the Keys for years and La Jolla was on my list of places to visit because of its' unique 1940's style. I finally made it when I noticed they had updated their website to allow online booking. I'm very happy I...

Great rooms....great location and staff is very nice and helpful! We just booked our 3rd stay there. Every year we book more days! Love that everything is in walking/biking distance. We just wish we could live down there! Highly recommend La Jolla to get that Keys experience!

This was our second time staying at La Jolla and we had a great time. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is awesome. It is very quiet and relaxing. The location is within walking distance to restraunts and gift shops. LaJolla has become our vacation spot. Can't wait to return.

This motel is pretty old and need some updates. The outside is pretty it's close everything but the thing that creeps me out was they had a sign in each room that said you had to wash your own dishes or they would fee you but in our room they didn't have a kitchen sink to wash dishes so I...

Enjoyed our stay very much at this quaint little hideaway. Small quiet clean place to stay right on the bay. It's older but with lots of charm and very clean. We had the use of kayaks, paddleboards, bikes and fishing equipment. Never used the bikes because it was too hot or the fishing equipment because we brought our own. The...

On the way down to Key West for Lobsterfest, my husband and I stayed at LaJolla for a return visit. Once again, loved everything Old Florida about it. Such an adorable place with a incredible staff. Thank you for having us as your guest and keep up the good work LaJolla, as we will be back!!!!!

I have been staying here for at least 10 years. It really is a slice of old Florida. If you are looking for a real laid back, quite place to stay, this is it. Boat docks, cleaning table, brick BBQ grill, hammocks, chairs on the bay, shuffleboard, tiki hut, kayaks and pool. Nice staff, clean rooms. If you are looking...
