was very pleased with my stay. on my last night here, I was locked out of my room at 3 in the morning, and Oscar from the front desk was very courteous, prompt, and helpful in getting me back into my room at such a late hour.

We have such a nice relaxing time at this hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were so nice and spacious. The location is good and close to the beach. We are definitely staying here again when we visit San Diego.

I live in PB, my girlfriend came down for a weekend visit from San Francisco and found this great hotel. The price was very affordable. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the beach.

First, I would like to say what a wonderful trip that my family and i had to San Diego. We stayed at PB Surf hotel San Diego, November 1st-4th. My room was actually very lovely. We were much closer to beach than we anticipated. The beds were extremely comfortable even thought I needed a step ladder to get in. The... More

I had such an amazing time in PB for the weekend I was there. This hotel couldn't have been more great & definitely magical. Right on the beach. Great rooms. In walking distance of all the hot spots/views/bars/restaurants etc in PB. Parked the car upon arrival and didn't drive the whole weekend. We just walked half a block-2blocks and were... More

Great comments!! Yes, the area here does offer so many things to do in the day time and the night time. There are literally 40 - 50 places to eat, drink or enjoy live entertainment within walking distance of the hotel. We are very glad you really enjoyed your stay and we do hope it won't be your last visit. More

The location is fantastic: VERY close to the beach. The rooms have been remodeled, and the new retro decor is very nice. In particular, the newly remodeled shower was excellent. The bed is extremely high off the ground, and there were pros and cons to this. However, the "mini fridge" only had 2 settings: unplugged or frozen. Milk and yogurt... More

We are definately working on the last part of the bug issue. When we first took over, it was really bad in a few rooms. However, we have hired a company to resolve this, and it seems that we are almost 100% free of this. Unfortunately, you had this experience, and I hope that this will not keep you away... More

I stayed at the now PB Surf Beachside Inn from 10/6-10/8. It was a short visit home and I couldn't have been happier with the location and accommodations. My only gripe is the parking situation: I spoke to the gentleman who was working the front desk and he let me know that they really don't monitor who parks there. Since... More

Actually, I'm sorry about the misinformation as we do issue parking passes for this property whether you park at this property or at our sister property a block away. We do understand that beach goers would like to park in our lot, and we do require a parking pass for each car. Between the two properties, there are usually plenty... More

Seacoast Palms has very recently been upgraded & completely remodeled. New name now is PB Surf Beachside Inn. The room & bathroom was small yet clean. Great location literally can walk to the beach in minutes & staff was professional. Most places to stay in PB are dated and need remodeling. Stay here for a deal or stay at Pacific... More

Thank you very much for your description and the compliments. I do wish there would have been more room available to enlarge the bathrooms even more than we did.

Stayed 9/25-28. I travel to San Diego every month for work, and thought I had found the perfect property back in August. Decided to go out on a limb and book a property closer to the beach this time - It was beyond worth it. The property was recently remodeled, and room furnishings are on par with a much more... More
