We loved everything about this small hotel on Pacific Beach. Room design is plain but good quality furnishing and fixtures give a sense luxury. Beds very comfortable. Best thing is the view. We had the surf pad and was definitely worth the extra money. Most wonderful views of epic San Diego sunsets. Really magical place. Would stay again in a...

The bed was not that comfortable, the staff was not that nice, some were friendly but some were rude. Stayed 4 nights the views are awesome, locations is good if your looking to stay in PB. There going to need to keep it update to not start looking like some of the other dated hotels on this strip.

I was interested in getting away for a stress-free and renewing stay at the beach. I was expecting the ocean to provide this relief and rejuvenation, and it did. What was amazing is that the hotel also was just as relaxing and helped me find this sense of peace and calm. The room was clean and fresh. I could fall...

The hotel was fantastic. The service the location. We recently left San Diego and this was our first trip back and it didn't disappoint. We got married at this hotel a little over 4 years ago and we were so happy to come back!

Tower 23 is a wonderful hotel right on the beach boardwalk. It is very hip, has comfy beds in nice room. The view of the sunset on the deck next to the fire was amazing. We sat out every evening. I would give it 5 stars but am giving it a 4 for one reason. The lighting in the bathroom...

We stayed in a surf pad, which had a balcony with amazing views. I didn't think the hotel or the room were anything special. The room was small and there was a lack of lighting. At nearly $300 a night you are paying for the view. I was also a bit miffed that they insisted on valet parking, at another...

Tower 23 is a hotel for younger people as it does not offer comfortable seating to lounge about. The deck is beautiful with lounge chairs offering a beautiful view. However inside the hotel there is no lobby per say and the lounges on the 2nd or 3rd floor are ultra modern and minimalist. The same can be said about the...
