The junior suite was nice and comfortable complete with refrigerator and microwave. The bed and linen was comfy and the sound of waves crashing was quite soothing. The staff, Tara in particular, was friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was wonderful and prompt. I wish I knew her name, but she was quite lovely. The view was great and plenty of places... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2016 via mobile

We stay here for 3 nights, great location within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Great beach front room views and clean rooms. There is no air conditioning inside the rooms but this was not a problem we loved having the slider door open, listening to the ocean and feeling the breeze as you sleep. We did go in... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Surfer Beach Hotel last week! I booked with a Groupon and called the hotel to ask for an upgrade. The GM, Umit, upgraded us to an ocean view room for a nominal fee, and made sure the staff knew it was a special occasion for us. The hotel is older, but clean and functional.... More

Perfect little hotel right on the beach. Rooms are clean with decent sized beds. You have to try Woodys breakfast burritos right around the corner and the Doner fries from Amplified. Only drawback I found was the parking, they try to charge you $17 for the pleasure, however you can just park it on the street for free (for up... More

Perfect location, comfortable well appointed rooms Tara & Umit at the Front Desk were friendly and went the extra mile to make the stay better. This is my favorite place to stay in SanDiego every thing is accessible outside your oceanfront door. Thanks again. Will be back for sure

For the price, I guess that I can say that this was a good deal but I got it cheap. The hotel was not as nice as portrayed in pics online. See picture below. Portable air conditioning unit that never cooled us down, curtains that were not hung properly, bathroom tiles that were not glued down, and a sewer smell... More

Stayed here 3 days at the recommendation of friends who have been coming for years. It was as they told us: "It's all about the beach." It did not disappoint us. Older hotel on the beach close to many good restaurants. Great f you are looking for a place where you don't have to leave while you enjoy beach time.... More

Thank you so much. I came for my birthday and had a fabulous time. Comfortable, relaxing and close to everything. Awesome view. Having "the world famous" downstairs didn't hurt! Thanks for making it such a special trip!

The location is absolutely beautifully amazing. The view is unbelievable. The location is right next to the boardwalk and beach, and is very pet friendly. There are some hours that dogs are not allowed on the boardwalk/beach but there are lots of other close by beaches they are slowed at. Definately recommend this hotel. This hotel would also be a...

We just got back from a stay over Labor Day weekend. We have stayed here many times before, it is quickly becoming a home away from home. The staff is always helpful and accommodating. The rooms are clean and you cannot beat the location - it is right on the beach! The property is older, the elevator small and parking... More
