We were in San Diego for business and wanted to extend our trip a few days and found a nice deal. We arrived shortly before check in time and they let us right in. The guy at the front desk was very professional knowledgeable and friendly. The room was old but kept very clean so that didn't matter. Breakfast was... More

We requested a newer room, but there were none available. Once we checked in we noticed that only a few of there rooms had been remodeled, most of them are still quite dated. Our room had verb old soiled carpet that turned our feet black after walking around for just a few minutes. We also had no towels in our... More

Stayed here for a quick two night getaway close to the beach. We called ahead because we would be getting in after 10 pm. When we got to the hotel, our room was upgraded at no charge. Nice, clean room with king bed and a full kitchen. I only wish we could've stayed longer! 1.5 minute walk to the beach.... More

Great advice!! We are open 24 hours a day, so arriving late has no bearing on us at all. We are happy that you enjoyed your room with us, and hope you will come back again very soon! More

We stayed in a remodeled room- it was really nice! There is one building between the hotel and the beach but all that means is a few extra steps to walk. The outdoor pool is heated and seems well used. Loved the location and the price was good. Free parking- a godsend in this part of town! I would definitely... More

Very nice! Thank you for your comments! We will be fully renovated my the beginning of next year. But, our rooms are nice, whether you have a new room or an older room. We did just complete a renovation of those rooms a while back, and the big difference is really the décor! We hope to see you again soon! More

For the price, you can't beat it. Ask for one of the newly renovated rooms. They are really done well. Great location. It's back from the beach about 1/2 block but you can see a bit of the water from a few rooms. Free parking on site, very nice staff. Walking distance to just about anything you need. I wold... More

We stayed here last weekend during a big rainstorm (at least for the warm San Diego area). Our room got cold during the night and the heater was not working.

We had originally booked at the PB Surf Beachside Inn, but the afternoon prior to our arrival I received a call from the front desk informing me we were being moved to the "sister" property a block away. I was not thrilled with the change as I had spent many hours pondering, looking at pictures, maps, and reviews on the... More

My husband and I stayed here in early 2010 when we were looking at moving into the area. This motel is a block from the beach, has extremely clean rooms, ample parking and great rates. We moved to San Diego later that month, and now we always recommend this hotel to out of towners. My in-laws have stayed here on... More

We stayed here for a week in October and thought it was fine. The location is great, our room was brand new and we got a really good price by using the hotels website.

The Pacific Shores Inn is a quaint inn located at the north end of Pacific Beach. Many of the rooms offer some views of the ocean, and restaurants and shops are just a couple of blocks away.
