HELP! La Jolla Cove Suites or Hotel La Jolla at the Shores??
I'm trying to pick one of these hotels.

Is La Jolla Cove Suites right on the beach??

Thanks for your help.

No, it's not right on a beach. it's across the road from a lovely park which is right on the bluffs. At the north(?)end of the park you will find the steps down to La Jolla Cove which is very picturesque, but small.

When are you going?
La Jolla Cove Suites is right across from the famous LJ Cove and Scripp's Park which is lovely and you are right up the street from downtown LJ..
Hotel LJ is about 2-3 blocks from the shores and the beach is really nice there for swimming, boogie boarding and kayaking.. very clean and there are some great restaurants in the Shores area..Piatti's, Barbaralla, Sea Lodge and Marine room and of course Jeff Burgers..
Sea lodge Hotel is oceanfront but very busy during the summer months but here is the website;
Also, did you try the Grande Colonial?
Book as soon as possible if you are planning a summer trip..
Have fun!

Wow! Thanks for all the detailed information from both of you.

Yes, I checked Grand Colonial, and their rooms were sold out for next week.

Will investigate Sea Lodge further...Cheers!

Also try the Best Western Inn & Suites in downtown LJ.. 2 blocks from the beach and it is under $200 and it is in a perfect location. (858) 459-4461
I don't know the website..
If the only thing open is Hotel LJ..take it... It was running $199.00 with breakfast.. it is on a busy corner but you can get a ocean view room and they have a shuttle to take you to downtown LJ and you can walk to the beach and the hotel restaurant,Elario's is on the top floor and is pretty darn good..
