I stayed at the Surfer Beach Hotel from Monday, June 25th until Thursday, June 28th. I booked in advance the seaside manager special which was an ocean view room, free parking, wine and snacks, I was in room 206 which had a king size bed and a fabulous view of the pool and ocean. There is no air conditioning in the room so if you have to have air conditioning, book somewhere else. There was a fan in the room and I used it the entire time and was never too hot. I also left the sliding glass door open (it had a screen) when I was in my room and at night while I slept. It was wonderful to hear the ocean and wake up to watch the people surfing early every morning. I thought the bed was very comfortable and I slept very well. I love to run for exercise so every morning I would run from the hotel to the end of Mission Beach which was approx. 4 miles round trip. There were many people running, biking, roller blading, etc. - just a very fun place to be. The best thing about this hotel is the employees, especially Shane!!!! He was so helpful in all aspects. I wanted to visit La Jolla and University of San Diego and he gave me a map and told me the best way to get to both places. He always said hello when I was passing by and asked how my day was. He was so friendly. The housekeeper was also very nice and made sure I had everything I needed. I asked at the front desk where was the best place to rent a bicycle for the day and they recommended Surf Monkey - it is only $15 for the entire day and they are open from 10 am until 6 pm and the bike I rented was very new looking and had a basket - helmets and locks were also included in that price. It was fun to ride the bike up and down the boardwalk. There is a restaurant connected to the hotel called World Famous - they have daily happy hour and always a special price for certain food if you eat at the bar - I ate there for lunch one day and ate at the bar twice in the evening - Monday was half price appetizers and the seared ahi tuna was FABULOUS!!!! Wednesday the special was lobster tacos for $1.75 each and they were very tasty - of course, I had to have several shock top beers to go along with the food. The pool at the hotel was never crowded and I could always find a chair to lounge in. I had such a wonderful experience at the Surfer Beach Hotel and I will definitely be back. I would recommend paying more for an ocean view room because it is worth it.
