Enjoyed our stay at Seacoast Palms Inn and plan to go back. Perfect location for that area and remodel work is first class.

It was a last min planned vacation to San Diego. Never had a place to sleep just a rental car. Never expect to be find a inn never the ocean for affordable price. Everything you'll need is within a 1/4 mile walking distance or if you're hitting the bar it's crawling distance :) Rooms are amazing. Clean comfy bed, awesome... More

It sounds like everything worked out perfectly for you, especially without having secured lodging ahead of time. Most people do not know about us yet, and probably 99/100 people are shocked at how nice we are now, especially if this was not their first time staying with us. I hope that you will just go ahead and reserve with us... More

We booked this hotel last minute for Memorial Day weekend based on location and price. We read mixed reviews so we did not know what to expect. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find the entire property, inside and out, had been renovated. Our room was tastefully remodeled with modern decor. A past review stated that there was no... More

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write your comments. I know it can be a difficult decision whether to choose the Seacoast Palms Inn based on the reviews. Especially when the majority are so negative. However, if you can overlook the little items that have not arrived yet, we are absolutely gorgeous inside. And yes,... More

I'm sorry I didn't respond to your fabulous comments about the new Seacoast Palms Inn until now. But, I am certainly pleased that you noticed the work that has gone into transforming this inn into something special. As for the location, I have no idea how much more perfect our location could be. Thank you for staying with us! More

I only had one negative experience, which is why I rated as very good. I booked my reservation on the hotel website and book a King Suite which accreding to the description, was to have two flat screen TV's, microwave, sola bed, iron, ironing board. When I arrived, there was no record of my reservation, even though I had received... More

This inn is a little gem in hiding. Centrally located to nightlife, shopping ,La Jolla and less than 2oo ft to the beach, The Staff is amazing they are the nicest most accommodating people I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with at an Inn. They are renovating this property extensively but are very respectful to the tenants .... More

All right, finally a review! I want to thank you for commenting on my property. The old Seacoast Palms Inn and the new Seacoast Palms Inn barely resemble each other. In fact, I was informed today that we are more than likely going to change the name of the inn due to how much different it is now. We do... More

So I checked in the hotel very early like 11am with no additional charge which was greatly appreciated since I was driving all night long. So I got into the room and the room was ok I guess for being a dive. However the bed was so hard and not comfortable I kept waking up though out the night. The... More

Thank you, first of all, for taking the time to write comments about your stay with us. I know it was not very nice, but things are in the process of changing very quickily. In fact, by the end of April, the entire property should be fully renovated to a completey different standard. Because of the condition we received this... More

This is a rather nice hotel if you are on a budget. You can park your car(FYI not much parking space) and pretty much walk wherever else you need to go. If you have a lot of $$$, then no need to stay here, but if you are out on a very limited budget, this is a great place to... More
