Reviewed 17 February 2012

Traveled to the keys Jan 28-Feb6. Plans changed at the last minute but it worked out well. We didn't have reservations for sat or sun. Saw the vacancy sign on the La Jolla and pulled it. very friendly staff, room was great and sitting at the tiki bar/beach was sooo relaxing. We liked it so well, we booked it for sundaynight as well. Laid Back staff and treated you like you were family. Trying to talk the hubby in to going back in the fall! (or just moving to Islamorada!!)

Room Tip: We stay above the lobby, try to book by the water, nothing beats fresh air off the water in the morn...

This place has a great location, central to all our favorite Keys restaurants and bars. It is tucked away from the main highway and has a beautiful little beach/dock area. We enjoyed all the amenities, kayaks and bicycles. The managers were very accommodating and friendly. The room we stayed in was "W". It was very clean with a flat screen tv, new comforter and furnishings that were nicely updated. They don't charge a resort fee, which is a bonus. We would certainly stay there again.

Spent two nights here recently and really enjoyed it. The room was great as were the facilities, although they need an ice machine, as we did not need a 10lb bag, which they are happy to sell. The manager was really helpful and we had a great time. Will probably never return to the Keys, but if we did then this would be our first stop.

Went to La Jolla due to son's wedding. We had four rooms and they were all very clean and had everything we needed.

Room Tip: Cottage has great view of water.

Spent a night in Islamorada while traveling down the keys. La Jolla was a small, slightly hidden spot that had a wonderful view and great ambiance. Every encounter I had with the staff by phone and in person was cherrful and customer friendly.

The facilities were older but clean. The rooms themselves are a mix of old construction, ad hoc renovations and improvements, and newer furniture. The grounds are well kept and clean. Amenities such as the pool; FREE use of sea kayaks, fishing poles, snorkel gear; direct waterfront on the bay; and the very friendly and helpful staff counterbalance the average rooms. (The neighboring resort across the street charges $20- $35 for kayak rentals- so that is a perk for sure). Be sure to sit on the sand "beach" area by the seawall or visit the neighboring Lorelei restaurant for great sunset views. If you are looking for basic no-frills lodging and free extras, La Jolla is an option.

Room Tip: Pick one of the waterfront rooms for great views. Although the windows are no longer operable, the v...
