The cleanliness of the hotel was poor. Wooden ceilings were full of thick dust. Beds nice and clean but under bed thick dust, The whole hotel is looking tired needs updating. Staff were excellent but need to do something about their cleaners.

La Jolla Getaway

Posted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: The staff, the location, the beach!
Cons: less expensive room rates or free parking if you book over 2 nites would be nice.
Location: La Jolla, the ocean.........shopping, the cove, the marine life, tide pools, Scripps, great restaurants......and the Zoo is not far!
Very nice hotel. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are a little pricey but we felt it was worth it. The beach is the best....just walk out of your room and there you are....enjoying the ocean, sun and sand. Staff are there to set up your chairs and umbrella, so no need to bring all that with you! We ate at the restaurant several times and the food was very good. Happy Hour was fun.....except no Happy Hour on Monday...Labor Day holiday....not sure why. If you are looking for a great beach....with extremely great staff....this is the place!

Fabulous hotel on the beach!

Posted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: Everything!
Cons: noting
This is one of the best hotels I have ever experienced! Service is fabulous. The hotel is an older style, but believe me, that is in it's favor! They have a free shuttle to La Jolla village, ( tip of course) Sent me a bottle of wine for my birthday, made our dinner reservations for my B-day dinner and let the restaurant know they were buying me a dessert after my dinner. They printed direction, restaurant menus with prices, offer a happy hour, and will bring out chairs and umbrellas to the beach for guests. Fabulous!!!!

Stunning location

Posted Sep 3, 2014
Cons: The locks on the patio door was a bit dodgy
Stayed here in August 2014. The hotel room was huge and the balcony looked out onto the beach. La Jolla Shores is an amazing place with abundant natural wildlife. The kayak tour is a must as you will get close up to sealions, leopard sharks - we even paddle alongside a huge turtle. There is a great bakery nearby and some excellent local restaurants.

Excellent location on the beach

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Complimentary shuttle in local area, helpful staff, location, location, location.
Cons: A bit noisy. Also, it would be great if the hotel could arrange an airport shuttle service. A taxi ride to the airport was about $50 including tip.
Location: Great location for sunbathing, walking on the beach, and watersports. Shopping (beyond basic souvenirs) is available downtown, 10 minutes away by car.
My vacation at La Jolla Shores was an excellent value. The hotel is located right on the beach and thus attracts a lot of kayakers, snorkelers, and surfers. It was thus also a little busier and noisier than I would have liked. Still, you can't beat the location. The hotel provided beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels at no extra charge. The swimming pool is a bit small for the amount of guests and the hot tub was often filled with small children. However, the beach area is ample and kept clean of debris. The hotel also offers a free local shuttle to the downtown La Jolla area, so you can always explore other beaches and shops.

Great vacation day!

While this hotel seems like more of a family -based location. My girlfriend and I had a great time staying here. The location is second to none A perfect spot right on the la jolla shores beach. I highly recommend if you're looking for a fun beach getaway

Comfortable room and nice location

Great experience. The roof is a little bit of an eyesore, and the little flying bugs outside the elevator are annoying. Other than that it was great!!
