This hotel was beyond our expectations! We travelled with our two kids and booked a suite. The staff was very helpful and kind. The beach is right there. Our room had a kitchenette which was convenient for making breakfast for the family. The beach is gorgeous and the weather was great!! This hotel is very close to restaurants and shops....

i was very impressed by the great location of the hotel.The front desk people are very kind&eager to please.The rooms are very clean&up to date.The hotel is located a few feet away from the boardwalk so you don't need to wear your shoes to get to the beach.I definitely enjoyed my stay&I will be back many times.

I stayed ten days at this hotel and enjoyed every one of them. The room is clean, updated, spacious, and very convenient with a kitchen included. It is not a glamorous hotel, but it is unexpectedly nice for the price. Parking is limited, but I only had to park a block away three times in ten days. If you want...

Entrance to hotel room was very well lit at night. Unfortunately, the porch light shined into our hotel room, after dark, so brightly it was difficult to sleep. Our studio hotel room was too well lit up. Thank goodness I had eye covers! Otherwise, we were very pleased with our room, which was well maintained, clean and very comfortable.

This is the best little Inn I have ever stayed in. Me and my wife had so much fun staying here so close to the beach, clubs and an endless supply of places to eat. I plan on coming back to the PB often and will most likely always stay here.

When I arrived there was absolutely nowhere to park. I was told by the registration desk person that there are only four parking spaces for the hotel, and the rest is first come first served. She invited me to park at the sister facility several blocks away and haul my luggage back across town. I drove around until a parking...

First, thank you for staying at the Diamond Head Inn, and also taking the time to write a review that will help us improve our services. We do know that parking is an issue and have hired a towing company to tow any car that does not have an official parking pass for our parking area. And, we do have...

The Hotel was in the middle of everything in Pacific beach near the beach and located right on the board walk in Pacific beach. All the bars are within walking distance.

On the surface, the Diamond Head Inn is what you might expect from the pictures and price point. A hotel/motel with typically unhelpful, uninterested staff and adequate if not awe inspiring rooms. However, the real pay off is the location of the property. It is 20 feet from the steps which lead you down to the spectacular Pacific Beach and...

I booked a reservation at this hotel after reading the other positive reviews of this hotel. I seriously don't know what hotel those folks were staying at because this place was a dump!. The first problem was that there is no where to park. If you aren't lucky enough to get one of the 4 spots in front of the...

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us. We know that parking is an issue at the property, but can be easily resolved by using our parking lot at the Pacific Shores Inn. The Pacific Shores Inn is only two blocks away and offers every guest at the Diamond Head Inn a free parking space. We have a...

The rooms are pretty nice and its a good distance from beach. People who work there (including management) apparently lack common sense and any business ethics. I ended up staying the remaining 5 out of my 6 nights at another hotel.
