I called this hotel to get a rate of block of rooms for my daughter's wedding. I left a message and Jennifer returned my call and was extremely nice and very helpful. She explained how this process works and also gave me tips on other things my daughter might need for her wedding. She also emailed the information to me... More

This hotel has been completely remodeled on the inside. Walls are a little thin, but it is right on the beach. Staff was super friendly. Rooms have comfortable beds, a couch and mini fridge and microwave. They have 2 large pool towels in the bathroom that can also be used for the beach if you want. All of the restaurants... More

The hotel was in a great location if you like the beach. Room was average, clean but could use a little updating. I thought the pool was too small for the size of hotel. The staff was very welcoming & friendly. For being so close to the beach & on the walkway, the rooms were surprisingly quiet. Comfortable beds and... More

We had a room facing the ocean. It was great. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the location was central to everything. Being so close to the boardwalk can sometimes be noisy (on a weekend) but over all, it was a great please to be. The pool area is kept clean by the staff, but can... More

The location is right on the beach, I leave my sliding door open at night to hear the ocean. The rooms are always clean and stocked with towels. The staff is always very helpful. My girlfriend and I love this hotel. You can go right out the beach side of the hotel and walk along the boardwalk. The beach is... More

In addition to the obvious like its outstanding location, I found that all staff members were friendly, helpful and happy - like they were happy to work here. You can actually be comfortable and relax because the experience is so laid back and hassle free. Oh and the manager sent us a free bottle of wine because I mentioned that... More

We LOVE this hotel! I first booked through Groupon and now we are going back because we love it that much. From the outside, it's not fancy and they don't have a huge lobby for check-in but the rooms are all newly remodeled, clean and super modern. The hotel is literally on the beach and the only thing separating you... More

My family and I stayed here while visiting our daughter who goes to SDSU. Being that we purposely choose to stay at a Pacifica hotel, I'm happy to say our expectations did not fall short. The front desk staff was impressively knowledgeable and extremely friendly. The rooms have been newly renovated and they look modem with a beachy feel. Very... More
