We were lucky enough on a recent visit to hot, humid San Diego (yes, it gets that way fairly often during the summer) to stay in a suite at the Beach Haven Inn in Pacific Grove. It's a very modest little place about one block from the beach and, unlike many places nearby, it has great air conditioning!! Nothing fancy,... More

It's a two-star hotel with a 4-star experience. I've stayed at posher places in San Diego, but settled here on Labor Day weekend because it was close to the beach. To my surprise, I really enjoyed my stay. You can't beat the location and value. The staff was very nice and everyone I met was very friendly. I didn't feel... More

I love Beach Haven! This was my 2nd time here and I loved it. No, it is not the Hilton, but yes, it is a great bargain. The staff was wonderful, the other people staying there are always sooo nice, and the room was perfect for 6 girls! Right across from the popular Garnet Street and a block away from... More

If you like thin walls, creaky floors, hot water that wont last an entire shower, electricty outages when running the hair dryer, TV, and lamp, parking not close to the room, then this is the place to stay. The room was at least comortable as it contained all the necessities and only a block away from the beach. Although it... More

My friends and i wanted to stay here because it was cheap and close to the beach. There were 5 of us in one room and we had to pay $15 extra a night for a cot, we saw some of the rooms other people had and ours was HALF the size and most of the other rooms had only... More

A decent enough place: rooms are clean, location can't be beat, price is right, staff is nice. Don't make the mistake of going there (or anywhere near Pacific Beach, for that matter!) during Spring Break, though, unless you're there to party :-) Don't waste your time at the "continental" breakfast.

What a great value! I looked for days before finding this gem. Clean and simple rooms just a block from the beach, with most rooms going for under $100. Family-run and super-friendly staff upgraded me to the suite level for the same price (I didn't even have to ask!), although it was January (slow season). Likewise, did not have traffic... More

My family really liked this place. Sure the rooms are a bit dated but everything was clean enough. We had a suite with a fully separate bedroom. The kitchen is small but serviceable. The appliances all looked like refuges from the 70?s but everything worked. But the atmosphere is special. The pool is wonderful. Fully heated and beautifully enclosed in... More

My husband and I stayed here the first week of October. We had the 1 bedroom suite that in the picture is 2nd floor all the way to the right. It is probably the best room and looks just like the pictures. While I have to admit the place is older and not top notch, it is very much like... More

Read another review of the place after we'd made reservations, and had our... reservations, but were pleasantly surprised. Even though it is on a main drag, it was not noisy or hard to get to sleep. There's a nice heated pool, and HOT jacuzzi, and it's just a short walk to the beach, and the waves were great! Friendly staff,... More
