Great location (1 block from the ocean), but towel service was terrible. Everyday had to ask for more towels and the staff didn't know what a washcloth was. Room was clean, but very dated. Shower didn't have a door.

The room was musty and dirty. There was no shower door and something dead under the bed. The room was not what was advertised online. We left the same day we checked in and could not even stay one night. Would not recommend this hotel and will not be staying there ever again.

We picked this inn for our 4 night stay in San Diego. We visited around Christmas 2013 and not December 2014 as shown in the review. I had to pick Dec 2014 as the calendar in the drop down didn't go back to Dec 2013. Pros: Location: This place is like 2 mins walk from the beach and you get... More

Found rooms not equivalent to online pictures and need of update so somewhat disappointed with accommodations given booking done in spring. Maybe we just lucked out with timing and getting a room that's last in list of overhauling. A/C not functional and little cross ventilation to keep things nice but managed to survive. The pool is fine and beach is... More

The hotel room itself was clean and updated. The beds were relatively comfortable. I believe it was the owner who checked us in and did allow us to check in early. We stayed in a double queen room on the first floor. Our view was of the street but the location to the beach was good for the price we... More

Just returned from 3 nights. Our first room was nicely update a bit of a hassle to take our luggage and that of our grandchildren up the stairs and after just a few minutes obvious AC was not working. Very humid and warm and was told someone would fix in morning. It was an uncomfortable night even with window open.... More

The room was average, but the service was terrible. No towels in the room and the hotel manager (possibly the owner because when I asked if this was "his place" he said yes) was rude! I would try another spot where they care a little more about the stay or their guests. There was not adequate parking.

The location is super! Pacific Beach is just 1/2 a block away, and there are great restaurants, bars and stores within easy walking distance. If you have a car it is very convenient to get around anywhere in San Diego/La Jolla from here. However, this motel is pretty run down and tired. Our second floor room had spots in the... More
