My wife and I spent one night (anniversary) at tower 23 at Pacific Beach. We were upgraded to a suite when we arrived at the Hotel. The staff was great and explained the upgrade. The room was on the second floor and was suite one bedroom with two complete bathrooms. The room was perfect and the hotels sent up complimentary... More

This hotel is located right on the ocean with restaurants and shopping just steps away. We spent most of our vacation just relaxing on the hotel deck, soaking up the sun and enjoying the beautiful view and sound of the ocean waves. The hotel staff was attentive to all of our needs. Take advantage of the free bike rental to... More

Oceanfront , luxurious beds and bedding, Keurig coffee maker, modern design, free wifi and an outstanding staff make this property a real gem. I am coming back to this hotel whenever I am in the area.

Great location and bar. Service was friendly. Only issue was a stopped up toilet which did not get fixed in a timely basis because maintenance went to the wrong room and then reported the problem as "fixed".

When I searched for a hotel in SD and this showed up in La Jolla I almost didn't even have to look at the reviews. You know when you just know you finally found the right spot? Well, you have!! Just go to their website, pull out your CC, book the Surfpad $329 p/n (waterfront) or the Sweet Suite if... More

Great location and we had an ocean view room, good hotel. I wasn't wowed, but certainly a nice place. Oddly the bed has only one nightstand - not great for today's plug-in needs for phones, computers, etc. The towels and robes were exceptionally soft. They offer free rental bikes for 4 hours, which is great for riding along the boardwalk... More

My husband and I booked a room at Tower23 Hotel after an extensive research; we looked at places in La Jolla, on Coronado and in downtown and didn’t succeed to find a congenial hotel. When we arrived on a weekday evening the scene that met our eyes and ears took us aback. There were loud music coming from the terrace... More

I recommend the hangar steak which all of my family enjoyed.On top of that the room was absolutely beautifully laid out and was clean and classy.It is also near a kaleidoscope of delicious restaurants and breakfast places.We are from Britain and this...

Stayed here over the summer for a couple days. This place was awesome with a great ocean view and right next to the pier. My family and I loved this. The staff was phenomenal. We will definitely stay here again if we return to San Diego.
