I recently visited Pacific Shores Inn while on a brief visit to San Diego. Overall it was a nice little hotel and I would definitely stay again. It is in a good location, within walking distance of the beach and restaurants. The hotel site is well maintained and clean and the staff was helpful and efficient. The rooms were clean... More

Our stay at the hotel didnt start out very good, the room they gave us the first night the air conditioner didnt work so it made the room very stuffy. We survived the first night thanks to the cool weather being next to the ocean. The other 2 nights we were there they upgraded us to kinda like a condo... More

This hotel is a fine option if you're looking for a relaxing beach break in San Diego. You're paying for the location but it is well situated, it is very close to restaurants and bars but still just far enough away to be quiet. The motel itself is a little dated and run down although spacious, facilities are mixed compared... More

Of course, my staff and I review all of the comments made on this site, and are thankful for the constructive comments you made. We are always trying to improve our service as well as what we have to offer within the limitations we have. Slowly, I am making coffee, and possibly water at some later date a normal amenity...

We got a great room for the family on Labor Day weekend (after a couples stay the weekend before -see other review). The staff was so accommodating, especially Karla and Savannah who were always available to assist in everything we needed! This is such a perfect home base for a family wanting to spend all their time at the beach.... More

The location can't be beat for the price. However, the place needs many improvements that have generally been covered in other reviews. Hopefully, it will be a different experience after they have completed the remodeling. The staff is very friendly and access to the beach is one of its greatest assets.

This motel is in the midst of a transition of sorts. We were placed in a very nice recently remodeled room that fit our needs for lodging. However, the room's location was on the first floor of the south building. Consequently, to reach the room door, you walk through the adjacent parking space. Not too bad, but this also means... More

This was a tough decision for us before we remodeled the room type you stayed in. I didn't want to lose the kitchenette, as many of my winter guests stay with us due to that amenity. So, in doing so, we had to remove the second door leading to the street side. But, the reason we were forced to do... More

Nothing but kind words to say about our stay at Pac Shores Inn this past week in PB. Highly recommend to anyone looking to experience an off the beaten path weekend or short getaway on San Diego, while avoiding the touristy sides of San Diego's La Jolla and downtown areas late at night. Looking forward to coming back! :)

We stay every August. The staff is great - early check in, best available room, daily housekeeping. Location and quality cannot be beat for the price. Rooms aren't fancy but they are perfectly functional and reasonably roomy. Parking is ample. This year we were upgraded to an extra-large room with a kitchen, and a view of the beach. We wouldn't...

We do have a lot of tradition, especially in the summer season, and guests like yourself make it a real pleasure for me and my entire staff! Thank you for staying with us! I'm guessing you opted for a junior suite this year, and those rooms are very special in my opinion. They are new, spacious, and have an open... More

This motel doesn't look the greatest from the outside, but the rooms were pretty good. We stayed in the junior suites (I think), so I would recomend those ones.

Yes!! Everyone requests the junior suites, and I wish every room was a junior suite sometimes. They look great, have a kitchen, extra couch, two queen beds, and a really large shower! We are really happy you enjoyed your stay, and as for the smell, I am hoping that has been removed. We'll see you again! More

We had three rooms here and stayed 3-nights. Good - literally steps from the beach, sitting outside second floor room you have a great ocean view. They have renovated about 10 rooms here, which we had one. Renovated rooms are completely updated and beautiful. Very friendly staff. Lots of eating and drinking establishments in walking distance. Not-so-good - rooms that... More

I hope it will be 56 of 56 rooms by the spring in regards to renovated rooms. Thank you for staying with us, and I hope you will come back again soon! Oh, I'm still working out the final details on getting complimentary WiFi for my guests. More
