The location of this motel is fantastic. Within walking distance of all the local attractions. The transit station is an easy walk to take you further afield. The staff were lovely, helpful & courteous. The room was spotless, good bed & shower. Great value all around.

What a rip off. Do NOT stay here. I was in San Diego attending a two week conference. My conference listed this motel as one of the nearby options. I searched a variety of websites and this hotel came up as the least pricey option and when you are staying somewhere for 12 days price is a real issue. So,... More

The website states Jacuzzi suites $110 I wound up paying $290! What the hell it was my birthday. For almost $300 the room was so tiny. Went to the font desk to ask if there was a mistake this must be one of the $110 rooms basicly it is what it is. Ok I asked about the COMPLIMENTARY PLUSH BATHROBES... More

Dear Robert R, With all the excitement of downtown and the harbor, the websites state prices based on availability and average rates. With a variety of hotels and events in the area, we always must stay competitive. It’s best to book and lock in your rate ahead of time. We recently had some change in policy and will be sure...

The Pacific Inn is very close to the airport, and walkable to the waterfront as well as Little Italy. Late check-in didn't pose a problem, and people at the front desk were friendly. There's a small pool adjacent to the parking lot that looked clean. The room and bed were both very clean - the bathroom and TV could both... More

We were given a room on the second floor. Immediately smelled mildew. We tried to air it out, but it didn't get better. My son pulled back the carpet along the wall-- full of mold/mildew. TV also didn't work. We stayed in that room the first night( they were full). When I complained of the smell, staff just said,"That's strange."... More

Dear Bfletchninja, It’s unfortunate you were unable to find a room to your liking during your stay. I will be sure to personally inspect the rooms in which you stayed if you could provide me this information. Because of our beautiful weather and proximity to the ocean, San Diego does experience high hotel and rental rates, but we do hope... More

This is my favorite hotel to stay at in San Diego. The rooms are spacious, and always clean. I do wish there were more outlets, but I know they are making improvements. Managers Pete and Carlos are incredibly nice people.

The location was definitely the best part of this hotel - only a 5 min drive to the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park...and walking distance from the waterfront and Little Italy which has a lot of restaurants and cafes.
