This is the best place for small children! Excellent staff and very friendly. Very easy access to the beach if you have babies and toddlers. I would go back and day with my family. It's a place where we make memories year after year. Thank You LaJolla Shores.

Our first family vacation here and we couldn't have been more pleased with our room location to the beach entrance and town area. Hotel supplies the beach chairs/towels/umbrella which was a great relief we didn't have to buy or bring from home to lug around. Happy Hour at the Shores Restaurant inside hotel was a great way to start vacation. Great Fish Tacos and tasty fruit smoothies for teens and adult drinks to choose from. All other meals were eaten off-site at various restaurants just a few blocks away.

I love the location of this hotel directly on La Jolla Shores beach but sometimes the rooms can be a little noisy. It sounds as if there are birds on the roof. It would be good if the hotel could soundproof the roof so that it is not possible to hear such noise.

My family has been vacationing here since 1980. It was always so low key and relaxing.
It is still wonderful hotel and they have done a nice job updating the rooms. However, for some reason they have lost about half of the beach in front of the hotel to the kayak rental companies.
There are dozens and dozens of them piled up waiting for customers and there is so much less space for the hotel patrons to set up their chairs and umbrellas. Everyone is squished together now. We may have to find a new place to go.

Room Tip: Even the garden rooms are good. Just get the best view that you can afford!

The stay at LaJolla shores was just spectacular. You don't need to look and search for another location for your vacation as this is the place. The staff went out of their way to be very helpful and friendly. The rooms were always clean as well as the grounds. The food was perfect. Try the chilakila's( spelling) for breakfast it's great. Everything you need is right with in a few blocks and the large grocery store( Von's) is about 10 minutes away. I know we will return as this was a very memorable expereience.

My son and I came here from Colorado for his 16th birthday. The hotel was clean, the staff bent over backwards to accomodate us, even uppgrading us to a partial ocean view room for no extra cost. The roomwas clean and the beds and pilows were super comfy! The pool is nice and clean. The beach staff was great and set up our chairs and umbrellas within seconds of asking. The Shores restaurant has an amaing chef and the food was delicious. The area is safe and clean with little shops and a few restaurants within walking distance and only a few blocks drive away there is the coast drive,which is beautiful and the actual town of LaJolla where you wil find lots of shops, restaurants and many things to do. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a truly reaxing vacation in a safe, clean neighborhood with a wonderful staff that will do anything to make sure you are enjoying your stay. I know we will be going back again and we can't wait!

While searching for a hotel "on the beach" I came across this gem. After reading all of the reviews I had mixed emotions about spending the kind of money it would take for my eight family members to stay here. There were some negative things said about the condition of the rooms and poor service but I decided to "bite the bullet" and go for it. We actually checked out the place the week before we arrived for our stay and the front desk staff were so helpful and the grounds of the hotel were so beautiful that we could hardly wait to come back for our mini vacation. We booked 2 rooms - one beachfront and one garden view - and both were very clean and comfortable. Check-in was supposed to be 4pm but we arrived @ 12 noon and were able to get right into the beachfront room which was a great surprise. The view from the balcony was breathtaking and the beach itself was just steps away. The garden view room was ready for us by 3pm. As we headed down to get some sun we were asked by hotel staff where we wanted to locate ourselves and they promptly set up chairs, umbrellas and towels for us. These "beach boys" were friendly and personable and my teenage granddaughters were in love. We stayed 3 days and the entire experience was wonderful. There is a nice pool area with very comfortable lounge chairs and nice big fluffy towels. There are ping pong tables in the beautiful courtyard. There's underground parking so there was no hassle about finding space for our 2 vehicles which is common in beach areas. The free Wi-Fi pleased my grandsons. Pizza, hamburgers and sandwiches are all available within walking distance if you don't want to utilize the hotel restaurant and there's a Von's grocery store less than 2 miles away. We are native Southern California folks so we spend a lot of time at the beach and I have to say that this was one of the best places we have ever stayed. We can hardly wait to go back.
