We stayed in a 2 bdrm suite for 1 night on a longer CA trip. The location is amazing in central La Jolla making walking to everything in town very easy; right across the street from the water too. Parking is easy too. The view seems better in some rooms than others, depending on where they sit in the Inn....

I’m leaning against the balcony on the second floor porch outside our room, feeling the ocean breeze and watching the glowing sun dip into the watery horizon. There is a grassy spit of land across the street, next to the trail dropping down to the tide pools, and upon it folding chairs have been arranged and a bower built. A...

Stayed two nights in the junior suite on a husband wife get away. The service was outstanding, Bryce (sp?) was an amazing host, accommodating and helpful with the area. Parking is included with the room, which after being there is a great feature (daylight hours are packed everywhere!). The room was spacious with two very large windows sandwiching a gas...

We had a large room that was not directly on the ocean yet we could still see the ocean from our window. They have a small table and 2 chairs just outside the room for a nice view as well as a patio area with furniture for a perfect, full view of the ocean. The tall gentleman who checked us...

We arrived at Scripps Inn and were so surprised by the proximity to the ocean - across the street, literally. We were warmly welcomed and given a quite tour of the property and a local map to get us acquainted with La Jolla. La Jolla is upscale and gorgeous, yet as in California, anything goes. There are lovely locals everywhere...

We`ve stayed here for some nights and were surprised by the poor quality overall and the so called breakfast of this In. We were also billed more than we should have been. Definitely not worth a visit. The floor under our Bed was full of dust, a coke bottle and a towel from some previous guests. After telling the reception...

Scripps Inn was perfect, quaint, and in a great location. My boyfriend and I visited from Boston in November and were extremely happy with our decision to stay here for a few days.

This is a small inn on the ocean. The rooms are comfortable and cozy. You can walk to the shops and restaurants or along the coast. Bryce, the general manager, and Savannah are so friendly and helpful. We like to stay here a few times a year.

You are paying 5 star prices with 3-4 star accommodations. The room was nicely appointed and very large. There were some serious design flaws that, by themselves, aren't that big of a deal but when put all together, really puts a damper on the stay. Examples include no hook for your towel in the shower, no HD TV, the ironing...
