Reviewed 4 August 2003

Read another review of the place after we'd made reservations, and had our... reservations, but were pleasantly surprised. Even though it is on a main drag, it was not noisy or hard to get to sleep. There's a nice heated pool, and HOT jacuzzi, and it's just a short walk to the beach, and the waves were great! Friendly staff, and other guests were friendly. The continental breakfast wasn't the greatest, or varied (carb-paradise). Great location - near sea world, the post office, the library, loads of restaurants and Costco too!

This is called an "inn", but it's just a motel. The beds were soft and sunken and the sheets had holes in them. Towels were shabby. Peeling paint and (sorry about this), dried snot on the curtains. Don't stay here unless you don't mind listening to the constant sound of traffic 24 hours a day, and every intimate part of every conversation with the people in the next room, just to stay one block from the beach. Pacific Beach is very nice and I'll go back, but I won't go back to the Beach Haven Inn. The people who work there were very nice and I mean them no harm, but this place needs some TLC and updating badly.
