This is a nice hotel located very conveniently one block from the beach. Close to boardwalk and walking distance to a large number of restaurants. Very comfortable bed, clean room and extra large shower (no tub). Room has a microwave, small refrigerator. Very helpful staff. Continental breakfast included. Located on Mission Blvd so there is a great deal of street... More

Our location on Mission Blvd. does make it a bit loud with street noise. But, we did recently install double paned windows to help soften the noise. I'm so glad you were happy with everything else! More

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel. It is well decorated and very clean (although the inside doors front and bathroom needed cleaned). Love the showers! Front desk was helpful and courteous (Randy). The price was very good as is the location, simply steps from the Board Walk with many restaurants/bars close by. Our last stay... More

Yes, sometimes the idea of an issue is enough. We never know what kind of a crowd we will have stay with us, as it seems like we are gaining a lot of new clientele with the word finally getting out about the quality and pricing of our property. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We'll see... More

This property has an unbeatable location and the rooms have been updated nicely. I really can't complain about the rooms, except the wet dog smell in our suite shower. HOWEVER, I can complain about the staff and the way they handled our situation. Upon arriving, the woman at the front desk said she couldn't find our reservation. It took her... More

I am apologizing now for the service you received upon check in. We do, from time-to-time, have issues in the various rooms, like plumbing, and electrical. However, we should have perhaps given you more compensation at the time. I do hope you will return, and hope you can see the value with what we have done to the property. Thank... More

I knew from the beginning that it would be a great place to stay because I had to sort out a mistake in the reservation made before we got there, and Alpha who works there took care of it on the phone. When I checked in she was there at the desk with Randy, the manager. A very professional team.... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights when in San Diego. If your goal is to be near the beach, this place is perfect! The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the beach, and is in a perfect location to the water, bike rentals, the big pier, restaurants, and bars. However, we were there to go into the... More

This very clean and well located hotel is awesome. I've been staying around the area off and on for the past year and PB Surfside is without a doubt the best value in the area. The front desk staff is helpful and polite. The location is perfect also. Walking distance to many restaurants and one of the best beaches in... More

Clean, modern room.We asked for one on the back/quieter side. Only one block from the beach and on Mission Blvd with lots of restaurants (including Taco Surf - good, cheap Mexican food) and a good supermarket nearby. Friendly, helpful staff. Convenient for La Jolla and Mission Bay. Breakfast OK - pastries, coffee and juice.

Yes, we did have an issue with a couple of rooms this past week, and had to have those guests leave in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, that didn't help you. We are very sorry for that experience, and want you to know it's mostly very quiet. I hope, if you are in town again, that you will stay... More

We really enjoyed our stay at PB Surf Beachside Inn. It was so great finding a motel that was so clean and modern. The shower was an absolute gem. It was so big you could dance if you wanted to.

Thank you for your comments. Your comment about the shower made me smile when I read it. We did a lot of renovating to make the showers what they are now. Prior to the renovation, it was quite a smell area in many of the rooms. We are happy that you like the décor as well, and hope you will... More
