      Historical Traveler Reviews Scripps Inn La Jolla

      Simple but fabulous!

      from

      Stayed here November 2003. Really lovely place to be, tucked in by the seaside. We stayed in a suite with multi-coastal views. Large sitting room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. You can walk from here right in to La Jolla and enjoy the shops and great restaurants. All beach-chic colours, very relaxing - great for a short stay. Sadly, I love the allure of a more luxury hotel experience for any extended stay but if you want a few days, then this is the simple alternative I would pick!

      Lovely weekend getaway!

      from

      Loved it! Our room was everything we could have asked for. The room had every amenity as advertised and was clean. Standard size room is very large. Next visit we will ask for the suite with the fireplace!

      Perfectly located within walking distance to EVERYTHING! The inn is directly across the street from the beach! Great people watching!

      Listening to the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach lulls you to sleep. Much better location and value than virtually every other hotel offered in LaJolla. Friendly staff! The only down side we experienced was the on-site parking, very tight!

      Disappointed

      from

      We had expected magic and more after reading glowing reports on the internet and in Frommer's. But we were disappointed when we saw our junior "suite" room at Scripps Inn. Sure, if you don't think about the traffic (both in cars and on foot, bikes, Segways, scateboards, motorcycles, etc) parading past the inn, you can see and hear the ocean, definitely perks for this property. And it's within an easy walk to restaurants, galleries, and shops. We weren't looking for extravagant; the simplicity of the place as described in reviews sounded very appealing. But we found our room in need of refurbishing, painting, some art on the walls, new rugs - especially at the stated price The seriously stained rugs were of particular distaste to us. The bathroom had clearly been remodeled and was in far better shape than the actual room except again for a rather disgustingly stained bathmat. The chairbed proved to be a terrible bed for a teenager, between its bent frame and size; to their credit, the Inn did reduce the price of the room and gave us extra bedding to create a place on the floor for our son. It seemed to us that without alot of expense on their part, the Inn could spruce itself up and create a nookier, more inviting oasis for its guests.

      Great value for ocean sounds and sights and fireplace...

      from

      Great value for ocean sounds and a fireplace in La Jolla. The innkeeper wasn't there when we arrived, but we waited on the front lawn, grass thenrocks, then ocean and watched a beachside wedding until she got there. The room was not bad, but clean and nice and roomy. They gave us a special rate and upgraded us due to the space available. (king bed and fireplace for $160.00 a night) We noticed several families staying there that made use of a patio and nice outdoor area. This is not a $400.00 a night hotel room, but a $400.00 a night environment. If you want a $400.00 to $600.00 a night room, walk up one block and you are there. For me, this was the place.

      Great time...

      from

      Standard room accomodations but very comfortable. We had excellent service during our visit but were most enamored with the location.

      Sitting on the porch overlooking the Ocean was fantastic as was the scenic park across the street. Downtown La Jolla within walking distance along with nice jogging routes along the coast (dedicated city trail or travel along coastline road going South). Would love to go back some day.

      Bad beds and threadbare linens in a delightful property

      from

      Booked a couple of rooms based on the tripadvisor reviews. Was really surprised at the poor quality of the mattresses and threadbare towels and sheets. Hotel is otherwise fantastic - excellent staff and wonderful location. For the price a small investment in guest comfort would greatly enhance an otherwise lovely, intimate hotel.

      Can't recommend enough!

      from

      Based on the reviews found at this website, my wife and I decided to stay at the Scripps Inn last weekend. This simply was one of the best decisions we've made all year. The staff is wonderful, the location (across the street from the beach and just a short walk from downtown La Jolla) is incredible, and the inn itself is quaint and inviting. And even thought it's an older property, it's been upgraded beautifully and it's extremely clean and quiet. The only thing that could have made it a better weekend is if we booked early enough to get a room with a wood burning fireplace....but then again we probably would have never left!

      Quiet little place

      from

      Stayed here for 5 nights in Oct 03. Fantastic location right by the Pacific in the lovely town of La Jolla, which is 20 mins drive away from San Diego. The staff were very friendly and the complimentry pastries are very nice for breakfasts.The room and bathroom were immaculate.Would certainly stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

      from

      We spent four nights at Scripps in August 2003. The location is what sells it, absolutely perfect. Just across from the sea and very quiet in the evenings. The staff were all very courteous and friendly. A little on the pricey side for the standard of room, but the location made up for it.

      Heaven by the Sea

      from

      A wonderful, small inn right across from the ocean. Grassy area across the street looks out over crashing waves and million dollar view of La Jolla. Clean and neat and a great place for an overnight. Take beach chairs, a bottle of wine and snacks and sit on the grass and watch the sunset. Lots of weddings take place on the bluff and are fun to watch. Park you car and you can be on foot for the rest of you stay. Village short walking distance.

      ... luck and pure bloody-mindedness, we located the USS Midway. This aircraft carrier was built in the last days of WWII and saw action in every major conflict up to Gulf War 1 when it served as the US mobile headquarters. Nowadays, it is a museum and gives the public a chance to see what life on board this floating giant was like. With a 4 1/2 acre flight deck, and ships crew of some 4000 souls, she is huge even by todays standards. it was great fun exploring ...

      ... Just above i was praising the American people but i did mention there were exceptions to the rule. The two exceptions we have found have been the first shuttle driver from the Maui Airport and the second our taxi driver from the San Diego Airport. They didn't speak at all, although with the Maui driver it may have been because he was Philippino driver and couldn't speak English. I am not sure.

      That aside, we are now settled into ...
