Bringing in the new while enhancing the old

 As most of our guests know, we are a family owned business and have been since we opened our doors in 1959. For decades our guests have enjoyed our oceanfront accommodations while they explore La Jolla and all it has to offer, and our team is always on hand to ensure they have a great time while they are with us.

With our hotel being 55 years old, we work hard to make improvements to our property while still maintaining its charm. Recently we have been adding various new accommodations to La Jolla Cove Suites to make our guests stay more enjoyable!

While enjoying you complimentary breakfast on the rooftop you can kick your feet up enjoying the view on our new tables. The little ones will surely love our new pint-sized picnic tables with padded seats and matching umbrellas!





After having our made to order waffles you can enjoy a bike ride through the Village at $15 dollars per hour or $45 dollars for the day!


With upcoming enhancements to our rooms we hope that all of our families and couples enjoy their stay at our retro hotel.

La Jolla Cove Suites Wedding and Reception


La Jolla Cove Suites was the site of Sunday’s beautiful wedding ceremony and reception. The couple chose a clean, classic look of silver and white for their reception tables, each accented with brightly colored centerpieces for a pop of spring color. The centerpieces were ringed with a thick band of teal blue ribbon that smartly tied in the azure backdrop of ocean and sky, as well as the hotel’s signature color.


Their adorable cake was provided by Flour Power, the cake table carried the color theme of the wedding, and was ringed in gems and flower petals; the silver cake utensils were bejeweled.

The wedding ceremony featured a photo booth from The Abbey Catering, as well as trunks full of photo props, and a photo album for guests to leave the second copy of their picture strip for the bride and groom. We’re sure the couple delighted in taking the album with them at the end of the night for an immediate glimpse of some of the wedding fun.

We at La Jolla Cove Suites certainly wish the two of you all of that and more! Thank you for celebrating your special day with us.

Congratulations to Alia and Ignacio, Wed on the La Jolla Cove Rooftop

Set up for wedding on La Jolla Cove Suites' rooftop

La Jolla Cove Suites had the great privilege of hosting Alia and Ignacio’s bright and beautiful wedding this past Saturday. We loved their color theme of charcoal grey and canary yellow. They accomplished a romantic, beach tone through their attention to detail and consistent application of an elegant starfish theme.

Guests arrived to Hawaiian music. Those in heels surely appreciated these thoughtful flip flops for dancing in comfort after the ceremony.
