The Beach Haven Inn is by no means glamorous but I stayed there with 6 friends and I found it comfortable and it has a great location. It's right on the beach in the vibrant area of Pacific Beach. The rooms are old but the beds are cozy & the place is clean. We stayed on the first floor and... More

We almost stayed at the Beach Haven but checked out the room BEFORE we checked in. Well, we never checked in! The room was dark and stinky. The cabinets were caving in and the chairs looked like they were from 1960! When I booked it said the rooms were renvoated, and when I complained they said that some rooms were... More

We stayed in a two room suite with a kitchen, but the bedroom did not have an a/c unit or a television, so no TV in bed. The furniture and fixtures were from the early 70's. Our bathroom sink was stopped up and had standing water for the first two days we were there. The question seemed to be "where's... More

Disgusting!!! Piss on toilet seat. Room smelt like piss. The most unsanitary place I have ever stayed. Checked out as soon as possible and stayed at the Pacific Terrace which was much better. You could not pay me to stay at the Beach Haven again. What a way to (--) my mothers day gift to my mom. GETTO!

I would not have my worst enemy stay here! Our room was awful, it was room 102 to be exact. They gave away the room we had requested with 2 queen beds and said that they upgraded us with a suite! Are you kidding me, the kitchen was so gross I wouldn't have even popped popcorn in it. My friend... More

The hotel was affordable and the staff helpful and pleasant. Aside from that, the place was a disaster. The room was cramped and outdated. The first night of our stay the shower head came off and hit me on the head. Everytime we used an electrical outlet, the power in the room dimmed. There is very little insulation between rooms...

My hubby and I stayed on our vacation and actually extended our stay because we loved the area so much. The rooms are small and very outdated but clean and the staff was wonderful. We were within walking distance of food, drink, beach, everything that you could possibly want.

Arrived late on December 16th and was greeted kindly and hospitably by older women in very nice office,,,,Went to the room to settle in an found bathroom cabinets all wood rotted and fixtures corroded. Mattresses had a coating of dirt. We slept on top of the bed and left abruptly in the morning without even showering. It was shocking. The... More

Stayed at this motel last summer and had a great time. When we were leaving the gm Jose booked us again for this year. He gave us the rate of $129.00 a night and told us we could reserve the room number we wanted. We reserved 3 rooms. When calling to confirm the reservation the Beach Haven didn't have any... More

This is a older hotel and the rooms, while clean, do have a few problems. There was no remote for the tv in our room and the restroom door drug across the floor and had to be forced open and closed. The room had a smell that we never could figure out. We only stayed one night, but that was... More
