I went on a weekend trip to San Diego with my girlfriend (both 28) and had actually booked a room with the sister location, Pacific Shores Inn due to the fact that in this price range I was concerned that the Diamon Head Inn had no permanent parking or swimming pool. I'm a big traveler but have not stayed in many hotels myself nor had I explored San Diego close to the beach. If you're in your 20s, maybe 25-30 I think you would find the place to be adequate. The pros are the location. Had no clue it would be so perfectly located for what we were looking for. There are reviews with complaints about the steps,etc but you're literally a minute away from the beach. Other pros are that the rooms were fairly big and upgraded., there's a nice convenient small kitchen area and refrigerator to store some drinks. The cons are unfortunately small details that more seasoned travelers might want to avoid with reason. Our television, not a priority I'll admit did not get any channels, the ceiling fan was wobbling and made a noise that was tolerable but annoying. Upon arrival our room was "ready" but there were no soaps or shampoos available for a shower.
I didn't find noise to be an issue though I could have possibly been more upset that somehow we were transfered from one hotel that we chose to this one without knowing what it was going to be like.
It's located right next to the Pacific Terrace Hotel that I would definitely recommend if you can fit it in your budget. Rooms seemed modern, large balconies and a nice pool that was semiprivate from the boardwalk.
Our room cost us $140/Mid-May for comparison reasons.
