The hotel is not fancy, but the localization is great, in front of beach, with great places around to eat, bars etc. It is a good place if u go there to take a shower and rest or if u surf... I only think that the breakfast is a little weak, they could give more options of fruit.

We loved it here! Super awesome location & staff. Diane & Neil were both cool & accommodating. We stayed two nights in Room 10 with an ocean view. Small room & bathroom but just right for a clean, comfy place to stay right on the beach. Very close to the bars & the boardwalk. They have boards & bikes for... More

For the $$, this was not a bad place, it has a great location. Think of it as a Motel 6 on the beach. The management was very friendly. Very thin walls, I was in room 8 for 4 nights and it was CRAZY at New Years and not in a good way. Try to get an upstairs room, because... More

I stayed here for two days over New Years Eve. The price was amazing (around $100/night or a little more) and the property is right on the boardwalk. Pros: - Right on the boardwalk. - You can hear the ocean crashing into the shore all day and night - Walking distance to restaurants, bars, the bay, beach, etc. - Watch... More

I was at the Westin Hotel Downtown and the Pacific View Inn was what we needed, not the glitz. Walking distance from the beach. Seen the sun rise and sunset. Super Romantic. The rooms were super clean, complimentary breakfast and the price unbeatable. Definitely enjoyed the simplicity. I am definitely coming back. These Wisconsinite were super happy!

Be warned there is absolutely no AC and even at night when it does cool down, having the door open does not help to cool the room down.... even with two fans on. The room itself was clean, but the property is dated. The price was way too much for the room, and you will find a better deal staying... More

This place still has 1950's fixtures, no air conditioning, no soundproofing, uncomfortable beds. The staff was friendly but the place is a dump. We rented their bikes and one of the chains came off in heavy traffic. No way to stop. I could have been injured. I asked for parking. They gave me a space. Later on my Visa I... More
