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...

I have used this hotel for the past four years as a base out of which I support a team who walks the Susan G Komen 3-Day. It's not the Hyatt-Regency. The stairs are faster than the elevator. Parking is extra. But, you can not beat the location and accessibility to PB/Mission Beach, and you can not beat the views...

We had a straight on oceanview...and an A/C system, but it was easy to look pass after awhile. Being right on Pacific Beach it was walking distance to several great restaurants and even a nice walk along beach to the roller coaster park. At first I was disappointed by our room because I am used to nicer hotels but by...

We had the family suite room reserved for Thursday & Friday for Thanksgiving however the hotel staff managed to ruin it for us by re-booking the same room to another customer for Wednesday & Thursday. As a result we had to scramble to make alternate plans for Thanksgiving for no fault of ours. The front desk folks weren't helpful, refused...

This is My favorite Hotel in the World! It is right smack on the most beautiful stretch of the sandy shores of Pacific Beach. The Pool is so pristine and clean, the pool chairs are so comfortable on the pool deck which is located right on the Pacific Ocean. We have the sliding glass door open this morning blowing in...

I so enjoyed this hotel. When we arrived the staff was incredible, very friendly and helpful. We absolutely loved the location. We had a regular room, but our view of the ocean was amazing!! The beach is right there, it is a very safe area. The other restaurants and shops nearby are so fun! You can walk the beach for...
