If you came to sit in your room instead of walking out your door directly to the beach, this motel is not for you. This basic motel was comfortable, clean, and had kitchen facilities (bring your own pans, plates, cutlery, etc.). A step outside will give you the heart of San Diego beach life. Rollerblade, ride a bike, grab a... More

A great value for the location on Pacific Beach. Although the rooms don't have air conditioning and it can get quite hot, it's worth the minor inconvenience. You can walk to everything since it's so close by and the staff are all great. The only issue we had during our stay were the loud people coming out of the bars... More

I stayed at the Pacific View Inn in Pacific beach for 2 nights in late Dec 2014. It is good value for the Pacific Beach area. Accommodations can be described as spartan - if you're stayed in a private room in a hostel, this is a category better being larger and better equipped (somewhere around 2 stars).The room came with...

So you're looking for spot in Pacific Beach that's near the beach AND the action on Garnet, but you don't want to drain your bank account? I recommend giving the Pacific View Inn a try. During a recent stay in San Diego, my wife and I decided to save a little money. Instead of staying at the Crystal Pier (our... More

My friends and I stayed at Pacific View Inn for the first time this weekend. Thank heavens it was only for one night. I'll give them one thing; great location. But compared to the numerous other places to stay on pacific beach; this should by far be the last on your list. I would rather sleep in my car. To... More

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
