We prepaid thru TripAdvisor for a room in this hotel. There is NO airconditioner, NO elevator, No tub (2'x2' shower),NO parking, LIMITED Wifi. There breakfast was a 1/2 gallon of OJ to share with others and Lenders bagels. Lots of surfers and bicyclers. Room was loud at night and very hot at night and during the day. This place is... More

This place was in a GREAT location! If that is your main objective, then this is the place for you. However, there is no air conditioning in the rooms which meant that the rooms were warmer than outside. I didn't notice before booking that they actually did write this in their description. It made it very difficult to sleep without... More

I live about 75 miles from this Hotel (Motel) and visit this area one to two days a week. Consequetly, I've had the opportunity to expereience a number of properties from La Jolla to Downtown. Due to circumstances I had to book this room with less than a week of lead time and wasn't aware that Comic Con was occuring... More

Yes, the location is perfect but that was ALL! My husband and I decided to stay at 3 separate sites on the beach from San Diego to Oceanside. We paid over $350 on a Thursday (the most we paid among the 3 hotels that were on the beach). We paid $160 and $169 for 100 times better rooms on the... More

I'll start with the only positive I can come up with; location! It couldn't be better. Right on the beach and very close to lots of excellent bars. Now for the reality! We stayed for four nights and during that full time our room didn't get cleaned. The rooms are carpeted so you can imagine the state it was in... More

This inn has cozy clean rooms so close to the water you can feel the ocean spray when you walk out of your room. The staff is friendly but leave you to your vacation. The continental breakfast is simple but fresh. Be sure to pay the extra to reserve parking or you might be walking a lot!

They didn't lie. This is as close to the beach as you can get in Pacific Beach! My room (#12) was billed as a "partial ocean view" ... I knew better from past experience than to believe that the view would be worth a darn. I have had "full ocean view" rooms from which you could barely catch a glimpse... More

We stayed at the Pacific View Inn this past weekend and we had a great time! The location is perfect, steps away from the beach with an amazing view, and the boardwalk right out our door. The room was very clean and bigger than I expected with the kitchenette being a full size kitchen! We stocked our fridge for the... More

Yes the location is great, but make no mistake, what is billed as "Oceanfront" is a Tiny, old creepy room with No balcony, much less even a window that opens. Yes you can walk right out and see the sunset from the great boardwalk, but for the price, there are much better places, I would think to stay

Pacific View Inn puts you RIGHT on the beach for a reasonable price. If you read the other reviews, you will see this is kind of a no-frills place. But the basics are covered. There are only like 11 or 12 rooms, and each apparently is a bit different (see their website). Ours had a little kitchenette with nice sink,... More
