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

We weren't planning on staying here but goofed up our reservation and this was the only option. So - location is perfect, right on the beach, room is nice but not extravagant, deck area is private and comfortable, and service is top notch. Even though checkout was at 11, they stored our bags for the day while we used their... More

We have one more night here at Tower23 and it will be very, VERY hard to leave! Our room was immaculate, well-appointed, enormous, and had a nice little ocean view balcony in which to have our own private happy hour. Or, I could go downstairs and sit in the lounge chairs (AWESOME little deck/patio!) searching the horizon for whales and... More

From the second we arrived we were catered to. Our plane was delayed due to weather, so when we finally got to the hotel it was later at night and we were done for the day (and a little bit grumpy) The front desk upgraded our room, brought us drinks and a bottle of champagne- all at no charge and...

This is a contemporary hotel with a very nice beachfront bar. Great atmosphere. Good craft beers and very good appetizers. Beautiful people all around. Great location in particular for sunsets. Make sure you time it right for the sunset.

I was on a private event recently at the Tower 23. I cannot wait to come back on my own. The attention to detail, the amazing service, the comfort of the rooms and the delicious food was top notch. I get to stay at many differnt hotels/resorts and Tower 23 is at the top. Beautiful location and close to many... More

I stayed at Tower23 with my three year old daughter and 21 year old sister. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and has a perfect location, right on the beach. We chose to spend a little extra and got the Surf Pad, which had the best view of the Pacific anyone could ask for. The hotel is located on Pacific Beach... More
