We stayed for a few days, it is newly remodeled, good value!! Excellent location.

Pleasant stay at the Shoal. Was in La Jolla for two nights and this was fine. The beds were decent, the pillows a bit cheap, rooms are smallish but nicely remodeled recently. Would stay here again if it was for a short time. didn't use the pool and had breakfast at great coffee shop next door.

floors were DIRTY - air conditioner didnt always work well....toilet didnt always flush

This property is in a great location. The beach is a block away and there are numerous restaurants right outside the door. The room was nicely updated. The pillows could be better and there should be more towels readily available since I found myself showering more than once a day due to sand and salt water. We will be coming back year after year.

Good location with very friendly front desk staff.

The property was clean and the staff was friendly.

It was very nicely renovated. Clean and nicely designed rooms. A pleasant surprise for the price.

Good accomodations but parking area is cramped. This is an older (but nicely updated) tight motor hotel design of the 50-60's. Not much that can be done to improve the space.

Third-floor penthouse room and surrounding patio space with view of the ocean was a great place to eat breakfast. Newly renovated rooms and furnishings were attractive and clean. Conveniently located nearby dining options and attractions. Freshly installed tile shower was more slippery than I was used to.

Location: just a 3 minutes walk to best surfing spot in SD.

A budget motel that is very well located. It is very near to Windnsea beach and around 15 - 20 minutes walk to downtown La Jolla. I guess that you get what you pay for and the room was small and basic but adequately equipped. A continental breakfast was provided but they don't tell you that you have to eat it in your room or by the pool. The building is currently undergoing a lot of building work and the reception area is temporarily housed in one of the accommodation units. There is no dining room at present. The other minor gripe is the very tight parking space at the back of the building. We parked an average sized car and somebody parked a Ford Mustang next to us. We had to manoeuvre back and forth around eight times to get the car out. The reception staff were bearing up to the difficulty very well and were cheerful and helpful. Full marks there! If you want cheap, plain and simple accommodation that is well located, then the Travelodge will fit the bill. If your budget stretches to bigger and better, there are several other establishments in La Jolla.

Clean place, friendly staff, excellent location!!!
