Based on the pics I thought we would get a nice room with a jacuzzi tub since the rates were so high but alas our room only had a shower. Small rooms. Nice packages but not smoothly delivered. The room also had a balcony but it was over the noisy outdoor dining area. The restaurant was delish!

Loved the hotel, the staff was great the room was fantastic, though they called it partial ocean view we had a direct view of the ocean and the deck. We were there for 3 nights and had a great relaxing time. If you go you have to try Kona's next door.

Second time we stayed here. Location is perfect for time on the beach and the hotel will provide most of what you need for a fun day on the sand (towels, umbrellas etc). Its about 15-20 mins to the gas lamp quarter, so its not located for central San Diego, but the journey is easy enough. Rooms are spacious and...

My sister got married at Tower 23 this past weekend. The entire experience could not have been more wonderful. The staff went above and beyond with whatever we needed. Luis in particular literally did anything & everything that he could to help with all the details. From moving us room to room, transporting all the wedding details, helping everyone feel...

My husband and I just got married here and we could not have had a more magical weekend! The entire experience was amazing. Brittany was an incredible coordinator, Ryan was so helpful with 100+ guests coming in and out of all the rooms, Luis was a constant help with our bags and anything else we needed. Best customer service we've...

We stayed in the King Surf Pad, #322 and couldn’t have been more impressed with the accommodations. Nice big room with a chaise lounge I used quite a bit, reading in the afternoons staring out at the Pacific, a nice balcony to sit and enjoy your morning coffee, the bed was soft and very comfortable and while you could leave...

Beautiful, modern hotel with a perfect location in Pacific Beach. Major perks include the free welcome drink (much appreciated after a long flight), free bikes for rent and beach supplies. Great customer service, Garrett at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful and the garage attendants were great! Really enjoyed the stay - will definitely return!

Close to the beach, that is nice in spite of the many male surfers finding it necessary to dress and undress in the middle of the street in front of the hotel, good breakfast, good bed, overall friendly and helpful employees.
