The Pacific Shores Inn is a quaint inn located at the north end of Pacific Beach. Many of the rooms offer some views of the ocean while restaurants and shops are just a couple of blocks away. The boardwalk is a 2.5 mile stretch that will take you from the north end of Pacific Beach all the way to the south end of Mission Beach. As you stroll down the boardwalk, you will find oceanfront shops and restaurants as well as the famous Belmont Park in Mission Beach. Bike, and surfboard rentals are located within two blocks so there is no reason to pack those items when visiting us. And, every room has a microwave oven, refrigerator, and a coffee maker for your convenience. Some rooms also have full kitchens for those who require that. Complimentary parking available for guests.

We have been coming here for almost 20 years. I am assuming that there was a change in ownership/management. We came for 2 nights in early October 2020 and paid less than we have ever paid. That should have been my first warning. We had a horrendous time finding parking which has never been an issue. Then we went to check in but now check in was down the block at another hotel?? Ok. Weird. So then got our room and although we booked a room for four, had ONE (1) ONE... ONE? YUP, ONE towel. When we went to the front desk to ask for more they said they didn't have any. ??? We waited a while and tried calling but the line was busy. I went the next day for more towels and was given 2...for FOUR of us. Very very frustrating. So 3 towels for FOUR people for a 3 day stay!?? We also had NO TV and NO WIFI our entire stay. Every time we called the office the line was busy and when we went to the actual office down the block, the man working said they didn't know what was wrong but we could relocate us to another one of their hotels in Point Loma...??? I am literally at a loss. I am not sure what happened to this cute little jewel. If you just need a bed to sleep in, super close to the beach this is for you. BUT bring your own towels!! It is so disappointing that this great place has changed so much. I can't get over the lack of towels and parking for paying guests. Time to find somewhere new I guess!

We are very sorry for the while COVID-19 precautions we have been taking that have really inconvenienced some of our guests. But, at this time, we will only be operating one lobby for safety reasons, and have rectified the linen situation. We hope you will come back again the next time.

We like to stay here when we simply want to hang out at the beach. The reviews are accurate in describing the location: the hotel is a quick minute walk to the beach. We like to grab our gear and go. Some of our favorite places to eat in Pacific Beach are just a couple/few blocks away. There’s no breakfast or coffee at the hotel lobby right now because of Covid (9/2020). There is a small coffee maker in the room but it uses those little custom trays you have to get from housekeeping. The room was nice & comfortable. Yes, there were some minor housekeeping or handyman-type issues, but nothing that negatively impacted our stay. Perhaps we were lucky, but I will say our stay was quiet and we didn’t feel unsafe. Thank you ... we’ve been coming the past 10 years .... and we look forward to more trips in the future

This motel has an updated beach vibe. Our room was less than half a block from Pacific Beach. Beds were average comfort level. Nice balcony. FREE parking! Breakfast was danishes and coffee. Staff was friendly and accommodating! I would stay here again.

First, the staff (especially the receptionist) are super friendly and helpful. This alone made the visit very pleasant. I don't know if I have ever had better service by a receptionist in any place i have ever visited. We were in a 2 bedroom on the 1st floor and it was nice. It was clean, updated, had a microwave, stove, fridge, and pots/pans. The room was very comfortable. We could hear the people walking above us, but they didnt really walk too much so it didnt bother us. Other than that, we couldnt hear any of the neighbors. The hotel is roght next to the beach which is great! You are also walking distance to all the restaurants, bars, and activities. You really cant beat the location. We would def stay there again. Thanks again.
