Faced with conf # and other details, they admitted error. they scrambled to find us another place for the night, We had to... More

I look forward to heading south again soon. I really enjoyed my stay at Beach Haven Inn. I live in Orange County and sometimes I like to get away for a day or two in Pacific Beach. Next time I will be staying at Beach Haven Inn because I have stayed there twice and both times, the visit was very... More

We brought my Mom and Dad to the Beach Haven Inn for a weekend getaway. I was impressed from the moment I walked in. The staff welcomed us with open arms! You don't get that in San Diego! We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which was spacious and comfortable for us. We grilled by the pool and had a... More

My family and I stayed July 4th weekend at Beach Haven Inn. The location was awesome. The staff was second to none! I feel they went above and beyond for myself and my family to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. The property is older but very clean. The pool and spa area was amazing. We spent most of our...

I live about 2 blocks away from the Beach Haven Inn, so when my dad came down to visit, I tried to find him a cheap room nearby. From the street (and if you don't look closely), the Beach Haven Inn looks like a cute little hotel, and it always is busy in the summers. It also was less thatn... More

We moved from San Diego's Pacific Beach 2 years ago and were excited to visit this January to see old friends. Knowing we would have lots of visitors, we book a two room suite at the Beach Haven Inn. Pacific Beach is a little funky in places and we are comfortable with that. We were not comfortable with what we... More

It is pet friendly which is why we selected it but it is nothing like the picture in the ads. It has full time residents which doesn't bode well, No soap, and they didn't replace the used lotion and shampoo. There is no hair dryer, and the remote did not go with the tv. The TV was old and the... More

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
