Happy with our stay, great location

Overall we were very happy with our stay. Room was large, everything worked and the service from the staff was very good, maybe a little dated, but that really did not bother us as we were not in the room that much. Great beach and place to watch the sunset from. It was amazing how much was going on, on the beach on a weekend morning. Ate breakfast in the restaurant in it was very good bit like most hotels a bit expensive and did not use the AC just left the slider open to we could hear the ocean and waves. The bed was not the best of the places we stayed on this trip but other than that, you can not beat the locatio

OUR best EXPERIENCE yet at this AMAZING place!

We stay annually at this AWESOME hotel every Fall. Our experience started before we even arrived with a phone call from the hotel asking what our requests for the visit were. I requested a certain room...I got a better one. The front desk treated us like royalty all week and the complimentary shuttle service which we rarely used in previous visits was an outstanding bonus as they took us anywhere in La Jolla to dine and shop with NO wait each time. It was like having a personal valet. The location gives us NO reason to visit other spots as you simply walk out the pool area gate to one of the best beaches anywhere. The hotel provides all you need for a great beach day...Chairs...beach "toys" and towels. Also it has great tennis facilities and equipment is provided by the hotel so no need to bring your own stuff!. They will even arrange a dinner on the beach from their fantastic Shores Restaurant! Places like this are disappearing all over the world...old school "Americana Vibe" with staff service that treats guests as valued friends instead of dollar signs. We are forever grateful we found this AWESOME place many years ago and each new visit we discover something better than the last one

Great Beachfront Hotel

If your looking for a great San Diego beach front hotel, La Jolla Shores is it. Our beach front room was a little outdated, but clean and comfortable. It overlooked the beach walkway, then 3 foot sea wall, then the expansive beach. The waves are close enough to hear the roar when the sliding glass door to the covered deck was open, but only faintly when the door was closed (the in wall A/C unit with average dB noise levels covered the noise of the waves when turned on and the door was closed). The hotel is at the south end of an approximately mile long beach and the hotel provided beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. The friendly attendant will carry them and set them up and take them back for you (but we chose to help him). The hotel has an outdoor shower to wash off the sand and salt after a day at the beach. The local kayak tours launch just south of the hotel and provided entertainment as we watched them from our deck when they entered and exited the ocean through the waves. The beach extends north to the UCSD/Scripps private pier (no public access on the pier, just the beach below the pier) and there is an optional concrete walk if you get tired of walking on the sand. Just north of the hotel and east of the concrete walk is a grassy public park with outdoor showers used by the local surfers. The hotel restaurant food was very good and reasonably priced for a beach front restaurant with great views of the beach. There are also several restaurants a few blocks walk from the hotel that are along a classic California small beach town main street. The hotel charges extra for parking which is below the hotel with easy card access (the exit ramp up/out was a little tight getting close enough to the card reader through the drivers window of our Jeep Grand Cherokee rental). We only swam at the beach, so cannot comment on the pool except to say it looked inviting. We enjoyed our long weekend trip to La Jolla Shores Hotel

Beach front

A perfect place to be if you love the Ocean like I do. Everyone friendly and engaging. Big thank you to Brittany and the staff. Good memories. Had beach front room that was kept up immediately. As you can see from the photos, does not get better than this...Hope to make it back soon
