More About La Jolla, CA Hotels...

Visit in Winter for Savings

San Diego is known for having the most perfect climate in the United States. The fact that it's nearly always sunny and beautiful means you can visit during the winter months, when everything is cheaper. 

Best Neighborhoods for Budget Lodging

The Coast Boulevard area offers bed and breakfast inns at budget prices, but is still close to the beach. The Golden Triangle area just off the Freeways is another affordable area. Or check out the cheap motels on La Jolla Boulevard as you move south into Bird Rock.

What to Do in La Jolla

La Jolla Cove Beach is the spot for snorkeling, scuba diving, and swimming. Save on lunch by bringing a picnic to share on the grassy knoll at the top of the bluff. There are several more beaches in the area, including the nation's largest clothing-optional beach. There are also museums to visit, or you can hike in the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. 

Luxury for Less

The luxurious hotels line up along Prospect Street, overlooking the coastline. The Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines, the Empress Hotel of La Jolla, and the La Jolla Cove Suites are all beautiful properties cost less than half what other luxury hotels in the area are charging. If you want a luxe room for cheap, come during the winter months and stay midweek. 

Getting to Your Hotel

Most major hotels offer shuttle service, but they may need to be arranged in advance, especially during the off-season. Not all shuttles are free, but they are cheaper than taxis. You can also take the #992 bus to downtown San Diego, then transfer to the #30 northbound bus to La Jolla. Plan on spending 90 minutes or more on the bus. 

What About Hostels?

There are a dozen hostels in the San Diego area. They are generally well-kept and well-loved by intrepid beach travelers. However, most are far to the south of La Jolla. The Ocean Beach International Hostel and the Point Loma Hostel are the closest to La Jolla, in the Point Loma area.

Book an Apartment for Your Group

Room shares and apartments are pricy in La Jolla, with private rooms on AirBnB costing as much as hotels, but without the same level of service. If you'll cook your own meals, you can still save money renting a room rather than a hotel, but keep in mind you won't have access to shuttles and other hotel services. If you're coming with a large group, though, renting a house or condo becomes a great option. 

Tools for Your Trip

You'll find travel planning advice and information at lajollabythesea.com. The SanDiegoBus app helps you plan your public transportation, including the journey in from the airport. The What's Up San Diego app combines maps, attraction info and events into one handy gizmo. 

Getting to the Good Stuff

If you want to visit the world-famous San Diego Zoo, the Aquarium, sports stadiums, or museums, allow plenty of time for getting around. Parking and traffic are a problem in San Diego, and the public transportation system isn't everything it could be. However, for $5 you can buy a day pass to ride the busses and light rails, and the SanDiegoBus app will help you figure out how to get from point A to point B.
