Location, Location, Location, you can't go wrong staying here. This was our second stay here and it didn't disappoint us. You can open the windows to hear the ocean at night. They also have parking onsite. The staff is so nice and accommodating. A fabulous retreat but a short distant from San Diego. You can easily walk to town, the beach and enjoyable sunsets.

The experience started with Gary’s friendly “Howdy!” greeting. Right then and there I knew that staying at Scripps Inn was going to be a great experience. Our room was the spacious Ocean Vista Suite, the view is phenomenal. The beach is across the street: make sure to find the seals resting on the beach near the lifeguard station. If you’re traveling to San Diego, plan to stay at the Scripps Inn, you won’t be sorry. I know we will.

Just got home from a 3 day stay at Scripps Inn and we loved it. Great value for a location right across from the beach. It is Covid - no housekeeping - which we would have declined anyway. The room came well stocked with plenty of fresh linens. Wish I could remember names - but the management girl was so friendly and accommodating. Only downside would be no AC - but it wasn’t an issue as the weather was awesome. Loved sitting on our porch, sipping coffee, with our Ocean View. Great trails along the beach right across the street. Would definitely Stay there again!

The location is amazing! Right across from the beach, but not a crowded area. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Minor inconveniences for us: no microwave, just mini fridge and coffee pot. And sofa bed not great, but I guess that's pretty normal for a sofa bed.

My only issue was the no AC and normally it would not be a problem but it was a heat wave weekend and we were trying to escape the heat from Phoenix, we will definately stay here again. Fans were provided and the temps outside at night were perfect. We had room 9 and it was huge and had a beautiful view of a garden from the bathroom and we could sit outside and see the sunset from inn. Perfect Location and friendly staff.
