Family-friendly, beachfront resort in near Kellogg Park

As its name suggests, the La Jolla Shores Hotel sits right on the beach in La Jolla, a suburb of San Diego. The Hacienda-style property offers guest rooms with garden, coastal or oceanfront views and private balconies or lanais. The hotel is also adjacent to Kellogg Park, a seven-acre public beachfront park, and features an outdoor heated swimming pool, in-room massage services, tennis and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Two on-site restaurants specialize in fresh seafood.

Highlights
    • On the beach and outdoor heated pool
    • Adjacent to Kellogg Park
    • Complimentary high-speed Internet access
      Rooms

      La Jolla Shores Hotel offers 128 rooms, including 19 suites that boast a seaside motif: whitewashed wood-panel walls, minimalist d├ęcor and flooded with natural light. Each room comes standard with a flat-screen TV, private patio or balcony and in-room safe. Guests receive complimentary high-speed Internet access and complimentary nightly turndown service (upon request).

      Features

      The La Jolla Shores Hotel dates back to 1970, when owners of the adjacent La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club opened the property as a place to house visiting VIPs. The property also sits next to Kellogg Park, a seven-acre public beachfront park gifted to the city of San Diego in 1951.

      Today, the hotel is open to the general public. All visitors have access to an on-site fitness-center with Aerobic and Nautilus machines. There's also a heated outdoor pool, Jacuzzi and tennis. The hotel offers 24-hour laundry service, too (fees apply).

      There are two formal dining options at La Jolla Shores. The Shores, an upscale restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Pacific, features locally caught seafood prepared in down-home styles. For a more formal experience, try the Marine Room.

      loved it, loved it, loved it!

      For the price that we payed, I couldn't ask for a better hotel. Everything was walking distance. The room was clean and beautiful. I can't tell you enough how beautiful our view off our balcony was. The staff was the second best part of this hotel.

      Very relaxing

      Took my hubby and son to la jolla beach for 4 days. Close to seaworld which we spent one of the days at and the other days were hanging out on the beach and walking to eat. We didn't want to leave. Rooms were clean and service was great. Food at the hotel was pricey but there were places in walking distance that were good. Loved the complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas.

      My favorite place to stay in San Diego!

      THE VIEW AND LOCATION CAN NOT BE BEAT...AND THE SERVICE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL WERE WONDERFUL. High class accommodations at reasonable prices. La Jolla Shores is the best location in San Diego...private, yet close to wherever you want to go. If I could live at the La Jolla Shores Hotel (previously called The Sea Lodge) I would never have moved from San Diego. The person checking me in did not inform me that when they ran my credit card, they put a hold on the funds for $50 a night. It is important to advise. Also, they did not advise me that the airport shuttle cost $40...I thought that it was complimentary. Small detail to improve on an otherwise impeccable place.

      The Best Family Vacation Place

      La Jolla Shores is as good as Hawaii without the flight, expense or wear on the kids from traveling. You cannot beat the convenience, beach access or the price. The staff is so NICE. The beach is awesome. There is a little park next door and good food at the hotel or within walking distance. You can do a million ocean activities right there. It is my favorite place.

      With little kids, if restaurants are a challenge, you can walk to pick up take out and bring it back to the hotel patio areas to eat. No mess in your room, the kids can run around and play and you can enjoy the evening outdoors.

      A winner in my book.

      The hotel and staff were very nice. We had a garden view room which was very nice and relaxing. I can't say anything bad about La Jolla Shores. I would stay there again as well as recommend it to everyone. Clean, well maintained and right on the beach. What more could you ask for. A+++++

      There are many good places to eat. The very best is the Corvette Diner in SD and Ruby's on the Oceanside Pier.
