We loved our stay at the Scripps Inn. The location can’t be beat- literally across the street from the most beautiful ocean views. It is a very charming place and we will plan to return. The only downside is that there is major construction right next door at the museum. It was loud. But, the hotel gave us fair warning about that when we booked our room. They also provide a box fan in each room and we had brought our own as well. With the fans going, we could barely hear the noise. It really did not deter from our enjoyment of the property. We highly recommend a stay at this beautiful little Inn.

Scripps Inn is in an amazing location, right next to the La Jolla Cove. The only downside is that since the building is a little old, you can hear the water running loudly whenever someone showers and you can occasionally clearly hear people walking around in the rooms next to you. These were minor disturbances though, as we did not spend too much time in the inn. But it may wake some light sleepers up. Overall, great place and I would love to stay here again.

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Scripps Inn has SO much charm. The location is perfect as well. The rooms sit right across from the beach and are in close proximity to shop/restaurants. We will most definitely be back!

Cute little room & right on the water; I loved it. However, I don’t think the rooms have ac, as the windows were all open & the room had 3 fans to circulate the air. While I didn’t mind not having ac, Scripps Inn is located in the middle of the hustle & bustle of the beach & ocean walkway, making it very loud with opened windows. Passing cars on the busy street also made for little sleep.

a hotel like home
One of the nicest hotel we ever stayed during holidays. We felt like home. The room was very nice. And as it is right across the ocean was easy to just walk to the beach and enjoy the waves.
