This was a great place, we will stay again. Even with the parking fiasco, I still loved it. A block from the ocean, plenty of places to walk to. Fridge and microwave in the room. Very nice staff. I cant say enough. If you have the opportunity, don't pass it up. Great for the price.

A great value for sure. A shelf in the bathroom or a mirror over the counter outside the bathroom would have been helpful. But the beds were very comfy, the room had everything we needed, it was clean and in a great location. We didn't have trouble finding parking, but we were also on eastern time still, so we were in early by PB standards.

Room Tip: I had room 30something - right outside of the 3rd floor patio. Dragging the luggage up the stairs w...

We must have a lot of guests on Eastern time then, as it seems that most guests arrive very early. We don't mind the early arrival at all though, and are more than happy to check you into your room as soon as it's available. This way, you can get a jump start on your vacation. Thank you for your comments, and we look forward to your return visit!

They did a good job with renovations, nice upgraded decor. The room looked clean at first, but found bugs in bathroom. The room had everything we needed (mircrowave, small frig, coffee), but it was very small. Also, the walls are super thin. We heard a lot of noise outside and from room upstairs. The pillows were great, but the bed was very hard. The location is close to beach, but a little too far north from PB action.

Room Tip: In the back

I'm sorry you didn't seem to like our new property. We have made so many changes and spent a lot of money on everything from enlarging the bathrooms to resurfacing the walkways. The beds are from Serta, and are pillow top mattresses. I know there is not one mattress type that will satisfy every guest, so we tried to purchase something in between. We are still improving the details now on the exterior, along the lines of the landscaping and the parking lot. I hope you will give us another visit in the future.

This is an amazing Inn with cabana rooms, separate bedroom with it's own flat screen TV, perfect for kis and adults together. Huge bathroom, frig and microwave. Super beds, everything you could possibly need and right next to the beach. Pool was a block away, but enjoyed by my grand daughter. The breakfast was pastries basically, but great for holding us over to a late breakfast or early lunch at the beach. Loved this place, friendly, helpful and extremely great value for San Diego.

Room Tip: We had a suite which was beyond great. Room 106,

The rooms located in the courtyard area are very enjoyable, and will even more so when we finally receive the furnishings for the deck. Hopefully, during the nice sunny mornings, many guests will be able to take advantage of this area to relax and perhaps enjoy their morning pastries. We are very happy you decided to stay with us, and we sincerely hope you will return again very soon!

We arrived Wednesday the 27th and originally set to get a King size bed, when Randy (employee at front desk) noticed we have 2 little ones. He immediately called me in and switched us to a double bed to give us more room for our kids. Randy was extremely helpful, went above and beyond for us, this will be our go to hotel in San Diego all because of him.

Thank you! I am very pleased that you were happy with Randy's customer service. He has been with us almost a year now, and he has been a very valuable asset. I will definately let him, and the rest of my staff know about how his actions made the difference! We hope to see you again, soon!

This is a great small hotel for the cost/benefit. I stayed in a double room (room 302) with a friend and was very satisfied. The room is spacious and cozy - and it shows that it was renovated, since everything looks new. The only small cons are: old TV, breakfast not so great. But, honestly, these are minor. Overall this is a winner and would definitely go back.

Thank you for your review. Yes, we did decide to reuse the same TVs as before, but they are all large screen flat screen models. Maybe, in the future, we will decide to do more on the breakfast side. However, space is the only serious consideration. We hope you will decide to stay with us again in the very near future!

We use to stay at this inn when it went by a different name. The property went downhill and we stopped going. Since we go to San Diego on the spur of the moment weekends and had no reservations we decided to try it again. The room had been totally renovated and was GREAT.
A great value for the money.
