Awesome place for the price, parking is limited but waking up right next to the beach makes up for it! The front office has bikes, breakfast, and beach accessories all for free and available to guests. I will definitely book for another vacation.

I stayed at the Pacific View Inn back in May. I had been out to Pacific beach in April and wanted to come back and surf more. Calling actually got me the best rate for the week and thats when I first spoke with Justin who altho going on vacation made sure everything was noted and taken care of. The... More

Where to begin... Yes, it's an older property but we found everything to be clean and in good working order. It is not fancy at all but suited our purposes well. There is no a/c but we didn't need it at the time of our stay (we did use the fan that was in the room). The bathroom could use... More

This is a really charming little hotel on a perfect location right next to the beach, you can both hear and smell the ocean. The neighborhood is a bit noisy, there is a lot of bars really nearby, however the hotel is on the end of the street where its calmer. Most noise came from other rooms and the street-sweeping...

This older property is situated right by the beach and walking distance from restaurants/bars so location is very convenient, but can also be a bit noisy due to its proximity to a couple of popular bars, just down the street. Another downside is having to pay a daily fee for reserved parking. Parking can be scarce in the area so... More

Pacific Beach hotels are expensive, but paying >$220/night for a one star hotel sets a new record. This hotel looks deceptively good online and has a great location, but is really noisy (people walking on floors above your room creates a lot of noise) and is not particularly clean or well kept. The staff are great, but they can only... More

Great location on the beach and close to shops and bars. The rooms are quite large with a king size bed. It is so nice going to sleep and hearing the ocean. The evening male staff member is super friendly and helpful. You can rent bikes and boards from reception which is handy

We will definitely stay here again. The room rates are low and the rooms are very nice. They are updated and very clean. The location is the best part of this hotel. You are in walking distance of everything not to mention seconds away from the beach! You can also rent bikes and other beach things right from the hotel.

Although this is an older hotel it has been freshened up. The room was a generous size with a kitchenette and an ample bathroom. The location is just after the boardwalk ends so it is quiet and a short walk to everything. The staff was super friendly.

First of all, the location is great - you are just steps away from the beach! You are though close to several bars (then again, where in PB AREN'T you close to several bars... :) ), so it can get a bit loud at night. The rooms are good - not huge or anything, but more than reasonable (I was... More
