This hotel is nicely located if you want to be right on the water (Pacific Beach), close to a scenic pier for fishing and right on the boardwalk to people watching. Walked just steps out of our hotel to get a morning walk on the beach. The food in the restaurant was very good and the bar/restaurant was extremely vibrant at night when it was filled with people in their 20's and 30's. They advertise their great beds, and our bed was good. We had a partial ocean view from our balcony, which meant we had to angle our chairs a bit to look at it. Great 2nd floor terrace with plenty of seating for about 20 people - all facing the ocean-and there's bar service for the terrace.
Only strange thing to me was that the sliding frosted door to the bathroom did not actually cover the door opening, so there's about a one-inch gap allowing for less privacy than some people might want.
