Room was in desperate need of updating and smelled like an old hospital room. Reserved a King Bed room several months in advance and when we checked in was told that reservations aren't guaranteed. Bed was noisy and lopsided. Definately not worth the money that was paid. Supposed to stay 3 nights, left after one (and that was only because...

The vintage California vibe of this place is cool. Staff is friendly and helpful. BUT this is not the place to come if you're hoping to sleep in. Every single morning I was awakened before 8:00 by either jackhammers, landscaping machines or brooms banging my door as they swept the walkway outside my door. That's especially sad because the beds...

We enjoy our stay at La Jolla Shores every time. You don't have to leave, just lounge around, hand out at the pool or hot tub, eat at restaurant or a few cocktails at the bar. Or you can layout on the beach, play in the waves and you can't forget to watch the sun set at dusk. Truly an...

Pros-location Cons-everything else - changed rooms 3 times. First room was over $400 dollars a night and infested with flies on the ground floor with ocean view but bathrooms from the park right next to us, boogers on the drapes, and right outside a stairwell which was noisy and unlocked. After calling the front desk to see if we could...

Oceanfront location with spectacular views from restaurant, terrace, and some rooms. Super-easy access to a beautiful beach and park. Room a little aged but clean and comfortable with private patio. Restaurant fine, not great, and somewhat expensive.

I have reviewed here before. If you are accustomed to 5 star beachfront resorts, keep this real. This is not a luxury resort with endless service and amenities. This is the perfect location to enjoy the ocean, toes in the sand, a small jacuzzi and pool, and chair service. Rooms are comfortable enough but not modern or luxe. Beds and...

The room was so-so. The climate system was hard to control. It's a stunning location. Restaurant service S L O W. Food was only ok. The property is tired and needs a refresh. It looks like, notwithstanding its ocean-front location, few of the rooms have ocean views unless you're on the top level.

I would rate this 4.5 state if I could. Excellent resort right on the beach with easy beach access. Pool is heated and hotel very clean. There are nice restaurants and shops within a two block radius of the resort. There are also many fire pits along the beach, and you can buy firewood at a local convenience store. One...

The hotel is a beach side hotel, so set your expectations accordingly. I understand with the Sand, and Water, it's difficult to have an immaculate hotel, however the Guest Rooms could use a deep clean as well as a refresh. There was hair product on the front of the bathroom door, someone else's hair on the back of the door...

This hotel is in a wonderful location; right on the beach and just a couple of blocks away from a great selection of restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are a few local shops and art galleries within walking distance, too. We enjoyed several lovely strolls along the beach. Perhaps the hotel could stand some upgrades, but overall it...
