Extremely close to everything, beach and sea world. We got the king family suite comfy bed and pullout sofa. Night and day staff could not have been nicer. Would definitely stay there again. Close to everything but very quiet!!

The hospitality here is special and every guest recieves home town treatment and the location is very close to PB shores. All the staff is freindly and warming. if you forgot something dont worry, chances are Beach haven has it. all restaurants and pubs are close, walking distances and dont forget to visit the Boardwalk Cafe for a stack of buck wheat pancakes.

Room Tip: All rooms are just as cozy as the next. But I prefer shade and the rooms to the north side great. bu...

Prior to my trip to check-out, this hotel and staff provided a wonderful experience. I called prior to my stay to inquire on a few things and the general manager answered all of my questions and was not hurried in doing so - even asked me questions to ensure I had all the answers I needed. When we arrived, the staff was just as friendly and accommodating. The room was clean with plenty of towels. It is a short walk to the beach and to many fine establishments for food and drink. You probably do not need a car, but there is free parking at the hotel. Would definitely (and most likely will) stay again.

My three children and I stayed here for five nights and we didn't want to leave. The inn is a small quaint place that is clean and well maintained. We loved the pool and the proximity to the beach. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, so once our car was parked (free parking is a bonus) we didn't need to use it again. What a perfectly relaxing vacation this was.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

The room was newly painted, the furniture not worn or ragged. My family of 4 enjoyed 3 nights and had no issues w/ the property and Mgmt was there to help anyway they could. Parking is limited, and there's a lot of foot traffic alongside the dedicated spaces. We dodged vomit on the ground (not ours) next to my vehicle one morning, and found a bong in the front yard of a house nearby the next. Overall, it was a pleasant stay for the money, and was recommended to us by a co-worker who swears by it. He also does bongs and vomits in driveways.. We've been back to the San Diego area several times since that trip and stayed elsewhere, more to just get a feel for what else is available, but the Beach Haven is worth the money.

Our family of 4 was looking for an affordable place near the beach in November 2013. I spent many hours researching possibilities and finally found the Beach Haven Inn. We booked a suite for 4 nights and were very pleased with the accommodations. It was clean, spacious, had enough kitchen supplies for our needs (including stove, small fridge, toaster, microwave, utensils), was a block from the beach, had a comfortable bed, and had free parking. We did run into a problem with the bathtub, but management quickly got it fixed. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are looking to go back this summer!

Room Tip: Upstairs is quieter than downstairs.
