A seaside retreat with a fresh, modern feel.

What it's like

Drive up to The Shoal and feel its vibe immediately: breezy and comfortable, with palm trees and sea breeze meeting your senses upon approach. Common areas have an inviting communal feel, and the modern furnishings combine style with beachy comfort. Sapphire hues and wave-like textures punctuate the soothing decor, reflecting your gorgeous surroundings — after all, La Jolla is Spanish for “the jewel”.

Independent spirit

Sit back, relax and soak up that ocean air.

Small touches

While The Shoal is conveniently located just one block from beautiful Windandsea Beach, there’s also a heated pool and Jacuzzi onsite for relaxation — open year-round except for inclement weather.

Every room comes with a single-serve coffee machine and K-cups for coffee and tea. Stay connected with complimentary Wi-Fi. Guest parking is free here — a San Diego rarity. There’s no resort fee, either. The Shoal is a breath of fresh air!
