Formerly known as the Sea Lodge, this unique beachfront property (one of only two hotels situated on La Jolla Shores) boasts a family feel with subtle luxuries.. In Short The only thing that separates this quaint oceanside lodge from the Pacific is a beautiful palm-tree-lined boardwalk. The three-story, 128-room hotel, adjacent to the historic La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, benefits from its proximity to San Diego's world-class attractions, but feels like a secluded hideaway. Recently updated amenities include flat-screen TVs, plush robes and DVD players. Their onsite restaurant, The Shores, boasts haute California cuisine plus a satisfying weekend champagne brunch.
