Randy the concierge was an amazing host!!! The hotel is less than a block from the ocean. Very nice suites. Can't ask for anything more. For the price you can't beat it, comparable to a stay at a shabbier place and further from the shores of the Pacific. The rooms are more modern, flat screen televisions in the bedroom and living room, stand alone shower with tall glass doors and nice counter tops in little kitchenette and bathroom. Great atmosphere with an ocean breeze coming through the windows.

That breeze can be so nice most days. I think with the location so close to the ocean that I would rather hear the waves and feel the breeze rather than stay locked up with an a/c. Yes, the rooms are all new with all modern amenities that we think make us perhaps the best little place close to the beach in San Diego! Thank you very much for your excellent review!

We really liked this place. Was a little unsure at first as many of the review were first time reviews and this seemed a little fishy to me but the hotel lives up to it's billing.

Not sure if we paid more for a bigger room as we booked through laterooms but we had a corner room and it was huge and had a table with chairs plus a big bed, microwave and coffee maker. Close to the beach. Really close.

Was clean with new towels every day although it got a lower review as the coffee pods were not replenished everyday nor was the toilet paper.

I don't think you'd be disappointed if you book this place but do go for a bigger corner room if possible.

Room Tip: Book a corner room

Thank you! I do wish all of the rooms were corner rooms! Regarding the reviews, I do seriously encourage my guest service agents to ask our guests to please write a review if possible. Randy is very assertive, therefore receiving a lot of feedback, and Alpha is at the property almost every day as well. We are really pushing for reviews as we are a new property with almost no prior exposure. Thank you for your review!

Rooms are clean and spacious with all amenities. Customer service is friendly from check in to check out. Awesome beach experience. So much to do in neighboring area! Staff is very professional and accommodating. Our family is big in numbers and we loved the special attention from the staff. We had a great vacation and made many new memories. Would definitely recommend the PB Surf Beach side Inn to friends and family.
