HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

This is the 4th long weekend I have spent at the Surfer Beach Hotel in the last year. You can't beat the location, everything you need is within walking distance. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are clean. More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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...

We stayed for a couple nights and we have very little to complain... just a few details have to be addressed... But... I'm in awe with the honesty of the employees!

I don't like writing bad reviews... so let me start with the positive. Rooms were good. Beds were fine. Location incredible. Pool is good. Honestly, they tried. We wound up with room 202... bad luck! You do not want 101, 102, 201, 202. We checked in on a Saturday and that was the luck of the draw. These rooms have... More
