What a heavenly location. We had rooms facing the ocean. To hear the ocean waves and to wake up to the ocean was such a treat. I highly recommend experiencing this beautiful property. I felt like I was in Hawaii. The staff were warm and accommodating. Special thanks to Jenifer.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit! I agree that hearing the waves from your room is a highlight (and so relaxing). I've shared your comments with Jenifer, and we all hope you have the opportunity to visit again soon.

We have stayed here a lot the last 20 yrs. Perhaps the best thing about this property is its location to the beach. Literally step out of the Hotel and onto the beach, there are few places to do this and the La Jolla Shores Beach is spectacular, and great for people watching and walking , jogging, running, or lolygagging....

Nice facility but very loud construction noise was very disruptive. I'd go back after construction work is finished but I would avoid it until room renovations and road construction and beach sewer system work is finished.

Despite the near gale force conditions, the staff did a good job. Watch out for the high pitched voiced bartender! The carpet, furniture, plumbing fixtures in our room were worn & dated. Nice restaurants w/in walking distance.

Great location, quiet courtyard and generous size room. Firm mattresses, all the basics were perfect for me. Would prefer that La Jolla participated in Green Hospitality certification. Cali is still a drought state, even with all the storms.

I have stayed here many times and the place is always great, I love the fact that they have a good restaurant on the premises. The pool is heated and is always clean. I will stay here for years to come.

The first room I was given the lock to the door that opens directly to public access garden was broken. After a little hassle, got another room in which the bathroom light over the sink did not turn on. Gave up on this one, but clearly they were not taking as good of care of their hotel as they could...

I love La Jolla and won't stay anywhere else. The hotel itself is a bit average - but the beach access is excellent! Lots of activities to do with teens and adults like kayaking or on the rafts. Restaurant at the hotel is pretty good but pricey.

I stayed at LHSH for a business trip to Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The hotel is only a short walk away. It is also close to a street with a number of shops and restaurants, if you don't feel like walking far, and about a half hour walk from the tourist center of La Jolla if you are up for...

We stayed here the week before Christmas in a comfortable, third-floor room looking north at the park and ocean. We were amazed at the numbers of surfers in the ocean at 6:30 AM. The hotel's location right on the beach can't be beat. We chose the top floor based on recommendations in other reviews and were glad we did as...
