Our stay was great. Kind and helpful staff and specially Alpha in the reception was very nice and always with a smile. Good, clean room and beautiful bathroom. Location and price perfect. We can strongly recommend this hotel.

I recently took my family to San Diego for my birthday weekend, and we stayed at PB Surf Inn on a Saturday night. Originally, my wife called to book the room but they would not give her a room for just one night. I went online and booked the room for one night through their website and it went through... More

New name is PB Surf Beachside Inn. VERY clean, well kept hotel. Nice staff. Free "Breakfast" was poor and less than continental style, only sweet rolls, store bought muffins, juice and coffee. One morning was even weak on the sweet rolls. However, you should skip the free "breakfast" and go to Kono's right across from Crystal Pier. Great breakfast but... More

I will definitely recommend PB Surf (new name) to my friends and family when I get back to Vegas! I usually stay here about once a year; always enjoyed being so close to the beach. When they told me about the upcoming renovation, I thought I would not be able to afford to stay here anymore but the price is... More

I'm happy to hear that you took advantage of the sun deck. Yes, the view is very nice, and the fireworks are visible from Seaworld every night! One of the concerns I have is that some guests may think since we have renovated that we will price them out. I will continue to retain the guests that have stayed with... More

I am all about the comfort of the bed. It was so comfy and the sheets smelled so clean. A big screen tv hung in front of the bed ,Samsung good picture. Very clean room up to date decor. Just everything was nice for the price. The only inconvenience was parking. There wasnt a whole lot of spaces. You don't... More

Some of the rooms do have 50" tvs. I wonder if that was the size of yours. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and that your mattress was comfortable. Everything is new in the rooms, so I am hoping everyone will be more than satisfied to stay with us. Unfortunately, parking is very tight here, but we do... More

Booked 3 nite stay. Was skeptical at first because i always stay at a "brand name" hotel. We were pleasanlty suprised with this propert.. Location is perfect. Close enough to the beach and board walk activites but just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. Staff were great, rooms were clean and newly renovated. Beds were very comfortable......

This is great to hear, and thank you very much for commenting on your stay with us. It seems that, just like you, many people have been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the rooms. As for the service, we expect that to be something you and every future guest should not ever have to worry about. Thank you again.... More

It's really nice to hear that a few mistakes did not really affect your vacation with us. We will always do whatever it takes to make every guest happy with the resources we have available. The main mistake was the room type, and this was my fault as I miscoded a new room and only realized this after it was... More

When I arrived to check in the first night they told me they didn't have the room I booked and would have to stay at their "sister properties" a few blocks away. Everything turned out ok with that and the new place ended up being very nice. When we went to check back into sea coast for our last nights... More

I'm really sorry for the entire situation you went through at our new property. I am glad though that we did have our other property just one block away that could accommodate you and your family. We never expected to sell out that day, and when we did, it was very fast and we could not repond quickly enough. As... More

Well, I'm apologizing for me and my entire staff. We are striving for excellent customer service and we have unfortunately hit a few bumps along the way with room types. The room type error is mostly my fault for incorrectly coding at least one room type. And two weekends ago, we ended up overbooking with two thirds of the property... More

This place does not have a waterfront view, but it has a great location and the rooms were just renovated, so I was extremely pleased with the value.
