Let me preface this review by saying that I really do not like being negative, but I hope my review will help others plan their travel. I work hard for my money, so when I go to spend it on a vacation, I hope that it will be well worth it. Unfortunately this place was not worth the ridiculous money... More

Yes, we are very happy and excited that you decided to stay with us, and I apologize if that wasn't apparent to you. I seriously stress the customer service throughout the property, in all areas of the staff. I will definitely read this review to each and every one of my staff during our monthly training meeting.

I stay there four days for a relaxing weekend in PB. The area is nice, and the location of the hotel could be better. I like this concept in a hotel in which you stay in a room in separate cabins. But at the end the stay wasn't as pleasant as I expected. First, parking is a problem there. What... More

I just had security doors installed in the courtyard area to allow tables and chairs to be placed inside for that purpose. I have been working towards that goal since we renovated. I'm sorry it has taken so long. But, we do have three tables with four chairs located on the sun deck! I realize most people do not know... More

Just stayed here after purchasing a 3 night stay on Groupon. This place is GREAT! It is a very nice little inn and I am very glad that I found it on Groupon. I will definitely stay here again. We had a queen room on the ground floor in the courtyard area. The rooms are newly updated with great bathrooms.... More

Wow!! Thank you for the really nice review!! We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, and noticed that we do take our guests with wheel chairs very seriously. As for the beds, they are so high, but we will always remove one if the request is made. Thank you, again! I hope we will see you... More

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights as part of a trip around California combined with a friends wedding. The hotel is very close to the beach and has plenty of nice breakfast options near by - we enjoyed walking along the beach and seeing the surf competitions going on. The room was clean and comfortable and... More

It sounds like you really enjoyed your stay in San Diego! This is such a great place to have a nice time! I'm happy you had no issues with our parking, but if you had, we do offer additional parking just one short black away. And yes, with how parking is in San Diego, I am always surprised to hear...

The rooms are clean and modern with HUGE showers. We were surprised at how updated everything was and the size of the TVs were insane! Less then a block from the beach the location was absolutely perfect. There was also a water faucet outside to rinse feet and shoes off to limit the sand you brought back to your room.... More

Thank you for your comments. I know, some of the TVs are really large, and I think they come as a surprise to many. We do apologize for the late breakfast start. Because we are closed at night a majority of the time, we depend 100% on the morning person being prompt. I have someone working almost every night now... More

There's lots of cool restaurants within walking distance. Also, it's great being so close to the boardwalk. They need to install curtains in the rooms, however, it gets very bright, very early! As others have mentioned, the noise from Mission Blvd might be problematic for some.

That's the first time I have heard anything negative about the wooden shutters. I'm sure you did, but I wonder if the shutters were closed correctly. They do allow light in the wrong direction, and it's not something obvious. Thank you for your comments. We hope to see you again soon! More

Stayed 4 nights. No complaints. Rooms modern with huge wall mounted TVs. When we needed something, service was prompt & friendly. Only draw backs ... no free internet ... Breakfast is basic pastries & coffee ... and no TV channel listing available.

Yes, the rooms are new! And some of them have 50" TVs. But every room has a flat screen TV. I am working on getting free Internet. I'm guessing it should be very soon. Thank you for your comments. More

The motel was very clean, appeared newly remodeled. Parking was ok and although it was limited we did manage to find a place. The only downfall is that I am only 5'0 tall and the bed was so high I had to literally "jump" up on it so it was a bit of a hassle, otherwise it was very comfortable... More

The beds are fairly high. After our renovation, we noticed that the new bed frames we had custom made were leaving the beds either too low or too high. For aesthetics, we chose to go with the higher look. The pastries come from a bakery every morning, so I'm not really sure how the pastries were stale. Anyway, thank you... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice in the last year. It is completely updated so it is a wonderful place to stay in PB. The location is perfect.

Motel was a block from the beach and in a great, safe area. Room was on the smaller side but perfect for two people. Room was very modern, had a comfortable bed and a hot shower.

Yes, the parking is limited, but we do have our sister property located just one block away. I realize it's not at the property you are staying, but it is about a 30 second walk away. Generally, there are enough spaces there to prevent you from parking ion the street. I hope you will stay with us again! More
