For those coming for short term visits, three convenient hotels are:

Sheraton Hotel La Jolla
3299 Holiday Court
La Jolla,California 92037
Phone: +1 (858) 453-5500

Residence Inn by Marriott
8901 Gilman Drive
La Jolla,California 92037
Phone: +1 (858) 587-1770

La Jolla Shores Hotel
8110 Camino Del Oro
La Jolla, California 92037
Phone: +1 (858) 459-8271

La Jolla Shores Hotel is quite literally right on the beach; the Sheraton and the Residence Inn hotels are more convenient to the freeway but far from the beach. All three are 5-10 minutes away from our building (Pacific Hall) by car. The Sheraton and the Residence Inn hotels are a 25-minute walk to Pacific Hall (1 mile). If you ask for a room with no ocean view, the La Jolla Shores hotel usually gives about the same UCSD rate as the Sheraton. Note you have to have an official invitation from our lab to get the UCSD rate.
