COVID-19 Update and FAQs

Throughout this situation, The Shoal La Jolla Beach remained open providing essential accommodations responsibly for the safety of our guests and staff. While occupancy was greatly reduced, we took the opportunity to do some extra deep cleaning, develop new standards and perform preventive maintenance in preparation for what we all hope is a fun La Jolla Summer!

Our Top Priority is safety and we monitor and continue to implement new measures for hygiene and cleanliness from sources such as the Centers for Disease Control, Brands, local health departments and American Hotel and Lodging Association to provide the best experience for you as you visit our hotel. We thank you for choosing The Shoal La Jolla Beach and look forward to welcoming you to our hotel with the warmth of hospitality.


Extra housekeeping measures are in place for the safety of our guests and staff. Extra focus on high-traffic areas and on high-touch items in guest rooms is ongoing. Reduced-Contact check-in, hand sanitizing stations and banners encouraging social distancing are examples, and we continue to monitor and add new recommendations. We are working through supply-chain channels to ensure further implementation is completed as quickly as possible.


We are offering our guests a relaxed 4:00 pm day of arrival cancellation policy for reservations made directly with the hotel for stays through July 1, 2020.

For reservations made after May 15, 2020, cancellations or changes may be made up to 24 hours before arrival. Some exclusions may apply around high-demand dates.

For reservations under a Group, including meetings, conferences and social events, please refer to the group agreement for details.


We never closed and welcomed medical and other first responders and essential travelers with a safe place to stay. Our hotels provided community services including hosting Red Cross Blood Drives, donating supplies to Community Service and Medical Organizations and highly discounted rates for Healthcare Workers.

Our hotels continue to provide special rates to Healthcare Workers to thank them for their heroic efforts to flatten the curve of COVID19 in California.
