Our trip started with a lovely telephone visit with Anthony at the front desk to request our favorite room. He was incredibly engaging as our crew checked in. Later, we were helped by Shannon, also at the front desk, who showed equal kindness. The staff is what makes this hotel so special. From tennis lessons with Nelson and "T" to great bar service from David, the hotel is more than a hotel, it feels like a club & like home. It rained for more than 70% of our stay and we still had a fabulous time. Thank you to all who made our sojourn to La Jolla so special.

Celebrated mom's 90th birthday with family. Beach location can't be beat...seals and dolphins playing outside. Service very friendly and welcoming. Greatly appreciate the Club and Lucia integrating me into a 5.0 weekly tennis group and had an awesome lesson with Tee. Room definitely shabby and not updated as others have said. Food was spotty, but we are foodies with high standards. Advise you NOT go to the high end Marina restaurant...way way overpriced...$120 grilled lobster with ordinary crab meat stuffing. Ridiculous. Expensive place overall...you pay for the amazing location and excellent recreation facillities.

Exceptional property with one of the best locations in California. Rules between "club" members and guest prevent some use of tennis courts and denied ability to play by tennis pro, even as a guest. Not a true hotel but guests seem to generate revenue for the club and guests not allowed certain access to tennis camps or lessons.

We had a really great stay recently. Would return and would recommend to friends. A favorite place, oddly, was the outdoor dining patio by the pool. Haley O made all our meals especially nice. The beach setting and sunsets also were really nice and I recall colleagues years ago saying "We went here every year." The only thing I'd change next time is the room location. Ours was in the very, very front, which meant there were zero inches clearance between our door and the main public thoroughfare. Noise late at night and very early in the morning were an issue with the AC being loud and needing to open windows for ventilation. A number of the other ocean-facing rooms were a bit set back and we would have enjoyed those better. Also, the advertised 'spa bathrobes' were never found. But overall this was a place we'd seek out on a return trip.

My family and I spent 6 nights at the beautiful LJBTC for a family reunion and are leaving so grateful for the experience. I was so impressed with how EASY they make vacationing, especially for families: spacious rooms, comfortable pull-out sofa, trundles in every room, kitchen with all the necessities, water refill stations, loungers and umbrella at no cost, towels and foot washing stations everywhere and the most friendly, helpful staff. There is so much to do! Golf, tennis, beach activities, fitness room, massage services etc. but I was most impressed with the daily (free!) activities ranging from Sundaes on Sunday to fire pit and S’mores, tide pool walks, arts and crafts, scavenger walks….We could have stayed 2 weeks and not done it all. We only ate on property at Club Dining and the food was great and the setting beautiful (we saw a whale do a full breach!). We did book a sunset BBQ and I only regret not booking 1-2 more nights of that. My only complaint is the rooms and building need work. Our room (#231) was very tired with an uneven floor. The bedroom location with views and waves made up for it, but if you’re a hotel snob as I can be, that may be a problem for you. My family also had rooms #230 (better room but bedroom on front of property) and #121. Overall, we were hugely impressed and feel so lucky to have found this amazing gem of a property! We also highly recommend Everyday California for surf lessons, Dough Mama and Shorerider for food/drinks. Happy Travels!

My grandparents retired to La Jolla and were members here, so I grew up coming to LJBTC twice a year for 20+ years. I never stayed at the hotel, however, until recently. The beachfront location is impossible to beat, as are the activities, which include tennis, chip-and-putt golf, pickleball, ping pong, cornhole, and other games I am surely missing. The staff is nice, and the food is top notch as well. They even have a falconer on the beach to scare off seagulls! (although I believe it's a hawk not a falcon, but still!) That being said, there is one caveat. The place is exactly as I remember it from when I was a kid, which is good for my nostalgia, but bad for the hotel. The painting scheme is a bit tired and clearly needs updating. More importantly, some key features are missing. There are no elevators, for example, so anyone not on the first floor will have to use the stairs. Be aware of this if stairs are an issue for you! Additionally, the rooms do not have readily available outlets (I had to pull the bed and headboard out to plug in my phone charger, for example). Overall, this place is great. But it is expensive and missing some modern accoutrements that are staples at even the lowest-tiered hotels. However, if your goal is to stay on the beach with ready access to great food and awesome games in an environment that is equally kid-friendly and relaxing, then this is the place to be. Just make sure you bring an extension cord or surge protector so you only have to move the bed out once! Safe Travels, Clayton Cohn

I am giving this an Excellent rating as I think it is an exceptional resort in an fantastic setting on the beach in La Jolla. I think it is as described and pictured on their website. This is not what I would consider a 5 star/Ritz Carlton type resort and I don't think they portray it as such. It is very nice. Rooms are as described and well maintained and clean. Do not expect a brand new hotel and furnishings. This is not a cookie cutter resort. There are a wide range of rooms. Some large with full kitchens, some with kitchenettes and some basic rooms. Some have ocean views and some do not, so many choices, and a range of price points, if available. I met family there and there seemed to be a lot of guests doing the same, so there are some large and medium sized groups there as well as Members of the Club using the amenities as well. All Staff were friendly and helpful and I would say the same about other guests. Every night there were people with beach fire pits and bar b que's (all set up and arranged by the club) on the beach. Super nice. The food and drinks were very good and priced fairly. Not especially fancy or extravagant but I would say similar to what you would expect at a country club versus fine dining. There is also a small downtown area near that is easily walkable with shops and restaurants. I plan to return.

I get a kick out of reading reviews by travelers who say how wonderful the place is because the views are terrific, which they are, and somehow they accept the fact that the rooms are tired, carpeting is torn, smell is "musky" (i think the word is "musty" unless you're commenting on the pile's cologne), and so on.... the place is a complete sh*thole and there's mold growing underneath that torn carpet... rooms are dirty, carpeting is stained and torn, appliances look like they were relocated from a housing project... save your money.

Our stay at La Jolla Beach and tennis club was perfection. Check-in was a breeze and the gentleman that checked us in was super nice and helpful. We had a room with a kitchenette and it was big and comfortable for us. Yes, the rooms could use renovations. The carpets are old and in some spots had tears along the edges. Our room had a slight musky smell and to me it’s from the old carpeting. The furniture is old and just the overall room def needs updating. However, I will say everything was very clean. I had no issues with the cleanliness and the service provided by the room attendant throughout our stay. Breakfast and service at the restaurant was very good as well. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. Now let’s talk about what truly makes this place a gem. It’s the beautiful beachfront property. You’re literally steps from the beach. So relaxing and beautiful and worth a million bucks. The amenities are great and though also showing a little dated was not a big deal for us. Dinner at The Marine Room was perfection and delicious. Honestly, I can’t wait to come back.
