AmazingPosted Nov 21, 2014
The view was amazing! Me and my boyfriend were able to have a few drinks within waking distance of our hotel. We saw an amazing sunset from our room...I even got proposed to later on that night!!!

Great family owned hotel, right on the beach!Posted Nov 20, 2014
Pros: It's large enough to have every accommodation you would expect, but still small enough that the staff treats you like family!
Cons: Can't think of a thing the hotel could improve. But, it would be nice if the San Diego trolly system made a couple stops somewhere in Pacific Beach.
Location: Right on the boardwalk/beach! Every kind of restaurant you can imagine within walking distance.
Hotel staff was absolutely wonderful! They were helpful with every question! The proximity to the beach and boardwalk is unbeatable. Great restaurants and bars within walking distance. The hotel is clean and comfortable in every aspect. I would highly recommend this place. I won't stay anywhere else on my return trips!

Great little hotel right on the boardwalk & beach!Posted Nov 10, 2014
Pros: Good sized rooms, balcony & view, breakfast choices, beachfront location.
Cons: Replace carpeting throughout, repaint walls with a more cheerful color.
Location: The boardwalk and plenty of restaurants will provide much entertainment when you're not discovering nearby attractions by car.
Location is right on the corner of the street, boardwalk and beach. As you exit from the front door and take a right, you will see the homeless taking their showers at the public facilities. They don't bother anyone and everyone just goes about their business. You can also access the boardwalk & hotel from the locked door on the board walk, which leads into the pool area and then into the lobby. We got a corner room with a view of the pool and a small view of the ocean. It was perfect for me. The balcony is nice & clean and wonderful to eat breakfast on. Speaking of breakfasts, this one is awesome! Cold products like hard boiled eggs, yogurts and cereals, muffins, fruit, bread products. You can also make your own waffles. The lady who oversees the kitchen is very kind. Laundry facilities helped a lot! Candy machines needed to be refilled. Carpets in hallways are extremely dated and need replacing asap!

I have stayed up the beach at a hotel that is double the price and was just as satisfied with my stay.

Nice place close to all the bars. It's more of a getaway with the boys the a romantic stay.

California Dreamin' at Pacific BeachPosted Oct 8, 2014
Pros: Location and views of the pacific ocean make for a relaxing stay.
Cons: Wish the neighboring bars stayed open later, but that's more of a city/state deal. Area was more suited for students, so the crowd was a bit young.
Very nice hotel right on the PB boardwalk and beach. Can't beat the location. Lots of bars and good eats within a couple blocks. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cali in general showed a lot of luv to me and my boys. Good times.

Great LocationPosted Oct 4, 2014
Pros: The location is the best thing about it. Also, the rates are lower than most other nearby hotels.
Cons: As I said, it's an old building that needs improvements. Their Wi-Fi is rather slow (2 Mbps) and needs to be upgraded.
Location: Many rooms have an excellent view of the beach, ocean and boardwalk. There are a number of interesting restaurants nearby.
Right at the beach, with good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. The hotel itself, though, is pretty old and in need of updating and modernizing.

Great ValuePosted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Close to the beach and restaurants
Cons: Minor thing..In the laundry room for guests there was no laundry soap available for sale in the vending machine but stores are close by.
Location: Beautiful beach which was very clean. Also boardwalk where people run, skateboard, cycle or just walk. There are a lot of restaurants, shops
This hotel was fabulous - close to the beach, restaurants, shops. Our balcony faced the pool and also a view of the ocean in the distance. Room was very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and consisted of toast, muffins, pastries, cereal. Best of all was the waffle machine where you can make your own waffles. The pool had comfortable lounge chairs. There was also a hot tub. Toys were available for kids heading to the beach. Towels were provided in the room to take to the beach.
