I stayed here because of Trip Advisor recommendations. I booked my reservation a couple of months ago through the property website and was under the impression it was prepaid in full on the company credit card. When I arrived it was NOT paid and the credit card i had used was not even on file. Since luckily it was during business hours I was able to get my work credit card and get it paid, but that was sort of annoying. I believe I read about problems with the online booking site on a previous review of the property.
The room was clean and comfortable; however the towel rack fell off, the a/c fan didn't work. Unfortunately we were inside the courtyard, which is small and echoes. While we were there several other guests decided to party until the wee hours with their doors open in the courtyard. Since we had to leave our windows open (no fan), this was not good. Since the office closes at 10 or 11 the property is unsupervised after that and if there are wild parties going on, then you are on your own. And in the courtyard here were loud drunk people at 2am 3 out of the 4 nights we were there. I read in previous reviews that if you ask for a room on the outside of the building, then the echo problem isn't so bad. Oh, and then when the cleaning staff comes in the morning, that's incredibly loud too...Beware the inside of the courtyard.
The location is fantastic, a couple of blocks off the beach and very close to numerous great restaurants. As I said, the room is clean and comfortable. I'm wondering where they got the picture on the website of the room you can see the ocean from the sliding glass door of the room? Near as I can tell PB Surf has a building in-between it and the actual beach...not sure the website is completely honest.
I loved San Diego and will definitely be back...before I stay at this hotel again i will carefully shop what my other options are...
