I made the reservations for my 2 daughters + my son in law to stay for the labor day holiday weekend. The feedback I had from them was: Great location and the staff was nice. Aldo for my part I researched the amenities and rooms provide very simple looks and because I am very well travelled I can tell :"for... More

My family stayed in #1, the Sunset Suite, for two nights in early August. I had trouble with the online reservation, so I called and Justin answered my questions and booked the room. I emailed with questions/requests twice before our arrival, and Justin answered quickly both times. We reserved a parking space per his recommendation and were very happy we... More

Me and my husband spent two nights in this hotel. The location is great, just by the beach. But, it felt more like a hostel than a hotel. People were sitting outside drinking beer all day and all areas were not so clean. The breakfast was poor. We paid almost 300 USD per night. I think it would have been... 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
