From housekeeping, to the front desk, to the resturant, to the parking attendants this was a very nice place to stay on a wonderful beach. Service on the deck was attentive but not always hanging around. The linens were great and the bed/comforter was very comfortable. Right on the beach walk, you are steps away from resturants, bars, bike rides,... More

My girlfriend and I came here in February and we loved this place. We loved the restaurant and being able to order food on the patio. The room was beautiful and with a great ocean view, definitely worth the price. Special thanks to Lorraine and William that helped us plan our day while there.

I spent a week in this fabulous hotel soaking up all that San Diego has to offer. It really is perfect. You look out at the sun setting over the jetty, with people riding what seem to be an endless collection of waves. The staff are very helpful and attentive. The rooms are kept spotless, and the amenities are lovely.... More

Not a bad hotel, but if you're looking for a place with a nice pool to relax by this is NOT the place for you! The pool (Actually not a pool, it's an over sized bathtub) was very disappointing you couldn't really even use it to cool off. Would not stay here again for that reason, plus the bar/restaurant on...

We decided to cut out visit to the Gaslamp district short by a day, and book a night at the beach. We are super picky and were happy to follow TA advice....and, pleasantly surprised. I was a little worried about the scene at first arrival- spring breakers walking around, I thought we had made a mistake.. But, after we checked... More

My girlfriend and I just recently stayed for 3 nights. The trip was a quick get a way with nothing but relaxing in mind. Tower made this perfect. The rooms were perfect and always quiet regardless of what was going on outside. The 2nd floor lounge area was our favorite spot. The view is amazing and the staff was always... More

This hotel experience was very memorable for us. The location of this hotel is literally right on the beach, and there is a pool area with a lovely ocean view. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room had a sort of concrete lanai/patio area on the same level as (and facing) the pool area, and if you were to sit on... More

We stayed for two nights at the end of our three week Honeymoon having travelled down the coast from Seattle. We stayed in one of their Skypad rooms for $300 a night. The room did not face out towards the sea but from the balcony you had a lovely view of the Ocean and sunset. Below the balcony was a... More

We stayed at Tower23 in February 2015 as part of a family reunion-type thing tied to the nearby Marine Corps base. It couldn't have been a better stay. The property is right on the beach (to the north of the pier). We could have spent the whole day looking a the amazing view. There's a running/walking path right outside with... More
