4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel was clean and in a great location. Easy walk to the beach and amenities. Just north of the busy area so a lot quieter. Close to great restaurants and beer gardens. No rental car necessary to enjoy all the Pacific Beach has to offer.

The hotel is just a block from the boardwalk and beach. The room was clean and pretty inexpensive. It was a bit loud as my room faced the courtyard area but nothing too bad. Walkable to restaurants and bars.

Me, my husband, my sister and two of my kids (2 and 4) went here for an overnight stay on January 2015. The place was nice and clean..Good size for five of us. I read reviews that the place was dirty and run down but i guess they renovated it..The only thing i see is a paint chip by the... More

This is a no frills motel that is well kept, perfectly priced and well-staffed. We stayed at PB Surf the evening prior to getting in to a rental house. This was our first visit to Pacific Beach and it provided a nice, clean, comfortable stay located within walking distance of just about every type of need you would have. Steps... More

My boyfriend and I love to go on adventure since we both hate where we are from (st.Louis ) and since we plan on moving some day. I read all the reviews before my trips and I came across this small place for a steal of a price with the location. The rooms were great for the days we stayed... More

The hotel looked liked it has been recently renovated and the room and bathroom were nice. It's located near the beach ( 2 mins walk) and you could follow the boardwalk all along. It's not far from the main shops and bars so there is plenty to choose from in terms of evening entertainment. There was a student vibe to... More

Only one...on the whole, the hotel was comfortable, well appointed, nicely decorated and very handicapped enabled. The flaw was no staff on duty after 11 pm, so when the drunken frat boys partied until 5:30 a.m. in the courtyard, we had no recourse. We did ask them three times to hold the volume down, but drunken young men are not... More

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, we do not have someone every night, but we try to predict the nights that have a greater potential for noise. I do, however, have a person on duty 24 hours a day at our sister property located a 1/2 of a block away, and have included little tents in each room with their... More

This place is great for exploring San Diego. The room is small, but not cramped. Everything was clean. The bathroom was a decent size, you could totally have a small party in the shower! I had seen some negative reviews and was a little nervous, but honestly this place was great. It is not a luxury resort; so if that's... More

We paid for 2 rooms with 2 double beds but were told that they only had one room for us. We ended up getting one room with king and one room with 2 double beds. Breakfast is non existant, there was no fridge in one of the rooms, the shower flooded the whole bathroom and bedroom in one of the... More

I do have to admit that we do sometimes error in reservations, and that there is a miscommunication with the room type reserved. I always recommend confirming your reservations prior to arrival. I don't know how you reserved, but there are many resources that only give you a room, and not a room type. When we can, based on availability,... More

check in was super easy and we got a perfect parking spot up close. In 15 mins we had our bags in our room, even picked the floor- we elected the second. The room is super simple but clean and had an update bathroom with a very large shower that is made for 2. The room is very small but... More
