Booked this for a great value- being so close to the boardwalk and free parking. It's ok for 1 night only. No real breakfast, a sticky sweet bun and lukewarm coffee. However, the front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. No view from the room at all, large kitchenette area, yet strangely no plates, tea kettle or utensils. Even...

Thank you for your comments, and these always assist us in making the necessary improvements for our future guests. I do have plans on hiring security for that reason. I thought having a part time desk clerk at night would keep things quiet, but I think the only solution is security. Other than that, we do not advertise anything nicer...

First thing I noticed while writing this review is that all the cons are similar. No joke. Plus... Honestly, the true guest rating should be a 2.0 at best. However, there are 2 pros: location and free parking (if u can find a spot) Cons: 1. They will try to put you in the handicap room (see other reviews). I...

Thank you for your comments, and for staying with us. I agree, and I would never park in a handicapped space either. But, as for a handicapped room, we are required to have several rooms of this type. Of course, if we have a guest with those needs, they will always get the room they are required to have. In...

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for wife's b-day. Chose hotel based upon other reviews on TripAdvisor. Big mistake!!! Pros: Walking distance to beach, great sunset views at the beach, beach was clean and uncrowded. Cons: Room was much smaller than appeared in photos. Very tiny. Foul odor coming from the drain in the bathroom was so bad we...

We are truly sorry you did not enjoy anything about your stay with us. I know the breakfast is not extravagant, but we are not advertising it as such. We do offer pastries, coffee, and juices. The plantation shutters are not black outs, but, if they are facing up, they block out almost all of the light. It looks like...

I almost don't want to tell you about this hotel because it is that good!!! Price is amazing for the quality of stay you receive. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Cannot beat this location being walking distance to EVERYTHING including the beach, bars, and restaurants. By far my favorite place in California.

Spent a long weekend here, straight off the plane from UK. Room was large and very clean, bed comfortable, environment quiet. Location is very good, towards the quiet end of Mission Blvd but just a short walk from plenty of eateries, and the beach is about 2 minutes walk away. Staff (you don't see many staff at motels!) all very...

Yes, there are so many choices of restaurants within walking distance of the property. I think you probably made at least five different choices during your stay for dinner, being that there are easily 25 - 30 choices within walking distance. Most of the prices are fair to moderately expensive, especially on the boardwalk. But, like you said, there are...

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. Some of the staff were very friendy, some not that friendly. It is very close to the beach, which is great, but also right next to a heavily trafficated road. The room was clean enough, but a few dirty spots on the doors and in the shower. We recieved new towels every...

Thank you for your comments! I wish we could do more for the breakfast, but we do as much as possible considering are area we have to work with. And yes, the main street in Pacific Beach runs right in front of us, making us a great location, but occasionally loud. We do have rooms in the courtyard area that...

Stayed here with a friend for our stay in San Diego. Check-In was a bit complicated, because your hotel didn't received our reservation and we had to wait a long time before we've got our room. Room was clean and spacious for that price. Breakfast wasn't special, some juices and cerials

Thank you for staying with us! We recently upgraded our systems, and we have realized some growing pains within our reservation system. Not that you are required to, but I always recommend confirming prior to arrival to be certain we have everything exactly how you want before you check in. I hope we'll see you again soon!

We stayed at this "beach motel" because we were visiting our daughter in Pacific Beach and it was close to her place. My husband and I went in with no expectations and were pleasantly surprised!

Thank you, that was a very nice statement at the end! Of course, being close to where your daughter lives will hopefully always make us your first choice when you come into town to see her. Please remember to let us know about her proximity, and that you are a return guest. Both of these give you a break on...

Excellent Location...Just a block away from the beach. We really enjoy early morning and evening walks along the beach. Beautiful view of the sunset each night. Very clean rooms. Staff is very nice and friendly. We enjoy staying here every opportunity we have to visit San Diego. Lots of Restaurants and Shops within walking distance. Everything is great!

Perfect! The sunsets are something, as the they are spectacular here most of the time, especially when the marine layer holds back. You probably noticed the crowds that stop doing whatever they are doing to witness the sun sinking into the ocean to yet again end another beautiful day in PB! Thank you for staying with us!

I want to write my experiences down by the chronological progress. We came here from Laguna Beach and checked in on time.

I'm sorry for the reception you received at the front desk upon arrival, and I do encourage a friendly atmosphere with conversation upon arrival. But, not something as strange as you described in detail. We are striving to feel like a home away from home, and want each and every guest to feel welcome! As for the WiFi, eventually it...
