Lovely hotel. You can tell they really want your business and work hard for it. Staff was very nice. Location perfect right on the beach. If you want to spend any time sitting at the beach you will need to bring or buy your own chairs, blanket and towels. Their pool is very nice and heated.

Perfectly located, literally adjacent to the beach and close to lots of good restaurant, this hotel provided us good impression of San Diego. The room condition was good. Although I had problem with the card lock, they handled it very quickly. Especially, I want to emphasize the kindness of a front clerk Ok-Seon, who welcomed us very nicely. Her kind...

Although we may not consider this a luxury 5 Star hotel, It has to be one of the best values as far as where to stay along the beach while in San Diego. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The location is right on the beach. There are food and merchandise stores right in front along the beach walk-way. The...

Came to San Diego for a week of fun. The Surfer did not disappoint! Great staff, clean room, awesome view, crashing waves and a perfect location! What more do you need to know. We will surely come back for round 2!

Just finished a 5 night stay. Carla at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. I usually stay at a different property on PB but chose this one because I had my dog with me and they are pet friendly. The location is right next to my favorite restaurant at PB, World Famous. Good place to stay overall.

I loved this hotel, it is right on the beach with stunning views of the sunset over the ocean. The room was a decent size with large comfy beds, tv and a heater. We didn't get a chance to really use the balcony or the pool but I imagine this would be ideal in the warmer months. The room didn't...

The location is amazing. The coffee in the room tasted like metal. I noticed rust in the coffee maker. I paid extra for ocean view but it was really just partial ocean view. It has a tiny shower. But the bed was good.

We just finished our 3 night stay at the Surfer Beach Hotel with our 2 kids, 12 and 10 years old. If you're looking for a beach location close to good restaurants, look no further! We enjoyed awesome walks along the busy promenade every day! The beach and sunsets were amazing and my husband and kids enjoyed body surfing and...
