La Jolla -- The Lodge at Torrey Pines has been named the Best Beach Hotel in California by Hotel Online. The full-service resort ranks 11th overall on the publication’s “2013 Best Beach Hotels” list for the United States mainland.

The Lodge is located above the cliffs of Torrey Pines State Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The beach, just a short drive away from The Lodge, is part of the 2,000-acre Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve that also includes endangered Torrey Pine trees, eight miles of trails, and a lagoon that his home to several migrating seabirds. The Lodge’s design complements the pristine beauty of the area’s pines and sandstone formations, with beam details that echo the Torrey Pines themselves.

Hotel Online’s 2013 Best Beach Hotels list was compiled by reviewing the TrustScores of more than 50 beach hotels from recent popularity lists, including Travel & Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler, Budget Travel. TrustScores are based on overall guest satisfaction over the past two years of online hotel review scores across all review sites, as well as a proprietary sentiment algorithm that considers positive and negative mentions. More recent reviews are given more weight than older reviews.
