I read some reviews of people complaining about this place, but we thought it was beautiful! Perfect location! Right on the beach! The hotel itself isn't 5 star but its really nice! Beautiful little courtyard/pool area overlooking ocean. Rooms were nice..not luxury but still very comfortable and clean! We had partial ocean view but really seemed like a full one! Bathroom was a decent size closet space. The restraunt at the hotel was nice and food was great. Bar has Amazing views! Front desk was nice and helpful! Had a bell hop to help with luggage. Great places near by to eat and things to do! Highly recommend this place and hope to return someday! Hopefully sunny though lol!

This hotel is a gem. Right on the ocean and so close to the restaurants and shops of La Jolla. The staff is extremely helpful. We worked with a young man named Will and he was outstanding. We loved our room that faced the ocean. The beds are so comfortable. The pool area was very nice too. Decent sized pool and hot tub, comfortable chairs, towel service.

I highly recommend La Jolla Shores - great hotel, beautiful location!

Room Tip: We were in Room 144 - at the end, very quiet, facing the ocean.

The hotel location is on a great beach for families and couples and is much more pleasant than near by Mission Beach, which is overrun by 20 somethings. The staff is very attentative and the ocean front views are to die for. The room furnishings are very dated for this price range, but comfortable and clean. In fact, if they hang on for a few more years, they may actaully be retro and cool again. The restaurant is very good, and it is also a short walk into La Jolla where several other great restaurants are located. This hotel/restaurant is a budget killer, but what isn't in this area?

Room Tip: The ocean view room are expensive. If you want to save money, you can choose a garden view room and...

The La Jolla Shores Hotel is one of my two favorite hotels. I recommend it to many people because it tells you when it is stingray season. It also lets people from the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club use their pool and hot tub because they only have a cold pool and kitty pool. The hotel is located right on the beach. When you stay here, you don’t need to go to dinner because it is also a restaurant. I have not gone to the restaurant though. That is why I recommend La Jolla Shores Hotel for you.

I enjoy staying here for the location. The service is on and off... front desk and management are responsive. Housekeeping and poolside wait service is spotty. But, you're on the beach and the rooms are comfortable. If you can find a good rate, definitely stay here.

i cannot imagine a better setting if you love the beach...yes, hotel is old but it is very clean (love the smell of clean) cozy and the staff is amazing. for example, on one of my beautiful, beach view (best view ever) breakfasts i asked for a to-go container for my raisins...and it came filled with more raisins! that kind of service and caring is worth a lot!

the la jolla shores beach is my favorite of all so cal beaches and the hotel's location makes it so easy to step onto it, or hang in the bar and restaurant (did that for 6 hours one day) with friends...food is excellent and did i mention the view? enjoy...

Room Tip: coastal view gives you a good look:) no need for ocean front and at times they are really nice and...

We spent our 2nd wedding anniversary here in La Jolla-our first time in this part of San Diego. Being New Yorkers, living in a tiny Manhattan apartment we decided to get away from it all to test out the waters and beach life in Southern most tip of California. This is the kind of place that that you often see in the commercials and on post cards...the cows (and people) are really happier in California.
The La Jolla Shores Hotel was more than we expected. The pictures and reviews online do not do it justice and that's why I am here to make their praises. The hotel is a beautiful, quaint and clean property located right on the beach. The staff were all very accommodating and friendly. It is a public beach, but very clean and safe. Their on site restaurant had great breakfast and lunch options. We didnt get a chance to try out their dinner optins, although, they were always busy and.
Around the hotel there are many bars and restaurants, all of which are pretty good. There is a decent size pool and hot tub where my hubby, but who wants a pool when there is the Pacific right in front?! Also, not to far from here are the famous La Jolla shops and other bars and restaurants. And if you dont have a ride, the hotel has a complimentary service to drive and pick you up (tips are always appreciated).
This place is also great for families and friends...so when we have an addition to our family, we will be sure to go back.

Room Tip: Facing the ocean
