My husband and I arrived around 4pm and stood in a line of 10 people to check in that led out the door. Without asking we were told we were getting one of their best rooms. Room 35 was upstairs with a view of the ocean. The view was nice and the room was just ok. This was not an... More

I reserved rooms for a family reunion. Total of 11 rooms occupied, 6 of which were the remodeled rooms. Check in took an average of 30 minutes per guest room. 1 person at counter and 1 watching over his shoulder. The 6 remodeled rooms were generally good except for 1 room had a huge stain that they brought in a... More

We have been staying at this hotel one block east of the beach and about 1/4 mile north of Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach every other year for the past ten years. This was by far the worst experience customer service and room wise. First room was clearly in the middle of a remodel and only cleaned up and passed... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night for a family reunion. Our group all together had around 8 rooms. Some of them were remodeled rooms (for the same price as non-remodeled) but those rooms were super nice! And had I stayed in a remodeled room, I'd probably give this hotel 4 stars versus my generous 2. Check in was... More

We had a horrible experience here and ended up leaving and finding a different hotel. Microwave didn't work, hair dryer didn't work, carpet raggedy, air conditioning unit blasted loudly a foot away from my husbands ear, door to bathroom had to be pushed on really hard to get it to shut. Coffee makers in the room but no coffee for... More

My husband and I were looking forward to a nice and relaxing time away on the beach. Most of the reviews we read were not honest or they did not experience the issues we had. We pulled in at check in time and there were 7 people ahead of us who we thought were also checking in. Not so! They... More

We had two rooms for our family of 6. We stayed at the Pacific Shores Inn many times a few years ago and it has changed. One of our rooms was updated. It was neat, clean and in great shape. The other one was older and had not been renovated yet. It had a funky smell to it, but was... More

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...
