Perfect Location
Reviewed 3 days ago

I searched long and hard for a perfect place to stay in La Jolla. The Scripps in was just that place. This was a perfect location that offers the classic Pacific crashing against the rocks and you can hear it from your room if you are fortunate enough to have a room close to the ocean.
Rooms were clean and more than adequate, but the scenery is the star of this location.

Excellent waterfront property, with beautiful views

Beautiful property in La Jolla, cozy, clean, and cute. Walking distance to everything in La Jolla, but off the the strip enough that it's quiet. You can hear the waves from the rooms. Would absolutely stay again.

Room 14
Reviewed 3 months ago

The location is perfect- across the street from the ocean and within walking distance to many restaurants, beaches, shops and galleries. Ask for room 14 to sit in your living room and enjoy coffee/ wine and the amazing ocean views and sounds. This unit has a separate bedroom which was perfect- I slept in while my husband was up early enjoying coffee and tv in the other room. My husband said the mattress was more comfortable than the one at home and we both slept great (not always the case). There was a microwave and stove top with pots/pans and plates/utensils which would be perfect for reheating meals. FYI- the refrigerator is large but no freezer (ice machine close by). When we landed there was a message from the front desk saying our room was ready which was wonderful as we were able to check in early. The staff was extremely friendly and had great recommendations. If you are reading this review- don't hesitate- book it.

Would love to come back!

This hotel turned out to be better than we expected so we stayed an extra night (3 in all).

Perfectly located just at the brim of the beach you can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.

Rooms are spacious and clean.

It is in no way a fancy bling bling hotel but has a suttle understated charm.

Seals, sea lions and pelicans are a short 10 min walk away and the same goes for a broad variety of restaurents and shops.

The view over the Pacific blue is magnificent and can be enjoyed from the sofas on the front terrasse.

We hope to come back one day.

Great location for seal watching at sunset,perfect for walking along the ocean

A perfect location for a small motel - right across from the Ocean! This was a unique property charmingly renovated to give it a very beach -like feel. If you're looking for a very clean,comfortable,and well decorated room which feels more like a bed and breakfast than a motel, this is your place. Not noted for amenities, the staff tries hard to make you feel at home. And they do have coffee and pastries in the morning.
I would definitely stay there again!
