This is the 2nd time that we have stayed at the PB and you can't beat the location for the price. The office staff is exceptional, especially the gentleman that works the overnight shift. Rooms were clean. We were able to walk to the strand, rent bikes, and it is right around the corner from Oscar's (an awesome taco shop).

I was planning a trip to San Diego, CA for my daughters 14th birthday and was unsure of where to stay. Being a faithful user of Groupon The PB Surf Beachside Inn was an option. I am very satisfied and happy with the purchase of the Groupon deal and highly recommend it. I do recommend this hotel and will for...

After years we decided to give a second chance to the PB Surf. Last time we wasn't satisfied about staff and customer service. This time it was surprisingly satisfying despite some blemishes. We had a studio which was spacious and had a fridge, a microwave and a coffeemaker with a few samples. It was headed to the mission blvd so...

Thank you for the second chance. We are currently going through and regrouting every shower and changing out the door trim in every bathroom. The Capri by the Sea would be a nice option, especially since it appears to be connected with us, but it's unfortunately not associated with us. We look forward to your next visit with us!

I stayed here in the middle of April over Spring Break and was satisfied with my experience overall. The location is fantastic...a quick 2-minute walk out your door takes you right to the beach (you have to walk down some stairs to get onto the actual beach, but there are access points close by). About a 10-minute walk down the...

Thank you for your helpful comments. I know we were renovating the Pacific Shores Inn during your stay with us making parking that much more difficult. That's where our overflow parking is located, and the construction company took up nearly 80% of the parking during that time period. Fortunately, we are back to having all of our parking back. The...

I took my husband to San Diego for 3 days for his birthday. This motel had the perfect location. We were 10 miles or less from all the tourist attractions we wanted to visit and its not very far from the airport. The beach was right there. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were a little small but we...

Thank you for staying with us. I think the parking was about as bad as it could get with our renovation taking up about 80% of our additional parking. Thank you for your review.

We spent five nights here during our stay in San Diego. While the property is older and many small details show its age, the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Parking can be a challenge if a guest shows up after 4:00 or so, and there is only one handicapped space. We did experience a serious plumbing issue that...

We do apologize for the plumbing situation, and appreciate your working with us in getting you resettled as fast as possible. I hope you will stay with us again, and remember, you can always request a courtyard area room.

Mid-tier hotel with very clean rooms and great staff, located 1 block from the beach. Rooms were nicely sized with large bath. The spring breakers were hanging out on the courtyard, nice kids, respectful. Everything you need; ocean trail, restaurants, bike rental places, pubs within walking distance. We didn't rent a car, but biked and Ubered into San Diego

Sometimes, especially if you are mostly going to enjoy the beach and the surrounding area, it may be better to not have a car. We appreciate your comments, and look forward to your next visit!

Compact, efficient motel on the corner of Mission Blvd and Missouri, just down from the ocean. This is a great location if you're looking to stay and walk the surroundings. You're just a one minute walk from the main drag! Rooms are small but remodeled. The rooms might have some quirks to repair, like stuffed drains and faulty air conditioners...

We normally stay at 4-5 star hotels, but based on the reviews and price took a chance on PB Surf Beachside Inn.
