“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

This very clean and well located hotel is awesome. I've been staying around the area off and on for the past year and PB Surfside is without a doubt the best value in the area. The front desk staff is helpful and polite.

The location is perfect also. Walking distance to many restaurants and one of the best beaches in the area.

You can't go wrong with this hotel. If you need a place to stay for a night or two and it's available give it a try.

Stayed January 2014

Clean, modern room.We asked for one on the back/quieter side. Only one block from the beach and on Mission Blvd with lots of restaurants (including Taco Surf - good, cheap Mexican food) and a good supermarket nearby. Friendly, helpful staff. Convenient for La Jolla and Mission Bay. Breakfast OK - pastries, coffee and juice.

Everything is new and very modern at the PB Surf Beachside Inn. The location is perfect as you said with so many choices of restaurants within walking distance and the beach being a half block away! Thank you!

We thought this was a very clean hotel with a very nice staff. The location is only about 2 blocks to the beach. There are restaurants and bars near by. We booked the room for 3 nights (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and were very excited about our stay. After 2 nights, we checked out because people near our room were extremely loud well past 2 a.m. We have no problem with partying and having a good time, but do that at the bar or somewhere else, not at the hotel outside of the rooms. I rated it "very good" because of the rooms, location and staff. Had our stay been quiet after midnight or so, I would have rated it excellent.

Yes, we did have an issue with a couple of rooms this past week, and had to have those guests leave in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, that didn't help you. We are very sorry for that experience, and want you to know it's mostly very quiet. I hope, if you are in town again, that you will stay with us again!

We really enjoyed our stay at PB Surf Beachside Inn. It was so great finding a motel that was so clean and modern. The shower was an absolute gem. It was so big you could dance if you wanted to. The rest of the bathroom is a bit smaller. The bed was very comfortable and again very clean. It was very tall though. I'm 5'7" and it took a little jump for me to make it in. It was to the top of my hip, so keep that in mind if you roll off the bed in your sleep, you will have a long way down.

There are a ton of restaurants that are close walking distance to get to. The walk to the beach is easy as pie. If you are planning on doing a lot downtown and away from the beach I would recommend something more in land but if you want to be a beach bum this the place to stay.

Thank you for your comments. Your comment about the shower made me smile when I read it. We did a lot of renovating to make the showers what they are now. Prior to the renovation, it was quite a smell area in many of the rooms. We are happy that you like the décor as well, and hope you will come and visit us again soon!

We stayed at PB Surf Beachside Inn recently, for a couple of days, to try out the Pacific Beach area. The location is great - a block from the beach and walking distance to lots of restaurants and shops.
The room was a bit smaller than we had thought from the website, but very nice and clean.
We had a rental car with us, and the parking availability was good.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Only downsides were having to pay for WiFi and the breakfast consisted of coffee and pastries in the lobby (no fruit or alternate choices).

Perhaps later, we may have other choices available for breakfast. My main concern is the area where we serve it. I don't know which room you stayed in, but we do have several pretty good size rooms here. When you reserve again, and we hope you will, please let us know your concerns. Thank you!

I simply can't say enough good things about the PB Surf Beachside Inn. It's a hidden gem in PB!

I am a San Diego native, but stayed at this hotel with friends since we wanted to have a fun night out for the New Year and not have to worry about being DDs or drunk drivers out on the road.

It was perfect for us - right next to the beach, the right price, and the right location - just steps from local bars and restaurants. It felt like such a steal as soon as we saw the room. Just huge! Beautiful bathroom, comfy beds, and a microwave/mini-fridge/coffeemaker on top of all that.

Plus, they have a cute little complimentary breakfast at the check-in desk. Nothing big - just pastries, coffee, juice, and tea, but still nice to have.

I would stay here over and over again! Plus, with the rates that it has, I can afford to!

I enjoyed my stay very much. It was my first visit and I could not have been happier. The staff members were all exceptional and they were there to help me and answer my questions. The breakfast was delicious and the room clean. I loved that it was so close to the beach and the value can't be beat. Lots of stores and restaurants within walking distance. I look forward to returning in the spring. Highly recommended!
