“Great location just off the beachfront”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of our holiday. It was relatively easy to find & we managed to grab the last parking space. Parking is tight but they do have more spaces at a sister hotel down the road. Check-in was easy & the staff were friendly enough. Our room was located on the ground floor next to the main walk way through the hotel. We weren't disturbed that much but I would've preferred a room upstairs away from passing foot fall & to feel more secure. We were able to keep the shutters shut to stop anyone looking in especially when we had the light on. The room itself was very clean with a huge comfy bed & lovely bathroom. The decor is modern & bright. Everything worked, but there was a daily rate for wi-fi. Breakfast was included in the price but was a very simple buffet - pastries & the likes with orange juice, tea & coffee. I would stay here again as it was perfect for accessing Pacific Beach & the surrounding area.

Room Tip: ask for one on the 2nd floor or away from the main walkway through the hotel

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

This hotel was a great discovery, excellent location, 100 m away from the beach and near plenty of bars and restaurants. We had a regular room the first night (nice but small) and then switched to a suite which was much more comfortable (studio type) and large. All the rooms have been renovated in 2012 which makes the place pretty cool.

However if you want to stay there, avoid using their website for the booking but call them instead. We booked our stay from their website (operated by a third a party, didn't realize that) and when we arrived they did not have our booking ...

Room Tip: choose a suite

Clean hotel, nice rooms. Good location close to beaches, restaurants, bars etc. well positioned and easy to spot from road (good for us who don't know the area) however parking is a real problem, especially on Monday nights when you can't park on the roadside due to cleaning.

That's very true about Mondays. But, fortunately, we do offer additional parking within a block away. And, thank you for mentioning the location, it is extremely easy to spot our sign from even four blocks away, making it very simple to find us anytime. We hope to see you again very soon!

The room in the inn was spotless and clean and had the most comfortable bed. It is by far the best hotel for its money in San Diego. Randy at the checkin counter was awesome when it came to customer service. The beach and food were within walking distance and a nice selection of coffee and pastries every morning before you head to the beach.

Thank you for the compliments about the breakfast that is offered each morning. Everything is new, but great deals can be had by looking at our website, or by calling us. We run daily specials whenever we have more than a few available rooms, so there are many opportunities to get a better deal than expected. We hope to see you again soon!

I booked my hotel with bookit.com and had no problem checking in. The room was very neat and clean. This hotel is within walking distance from the beach. Parking is very LIMITED so beware. I got lucky and found a spot right by the office. There are plenty or restaurants within walking distance, I ended up ordering in pizza because I had a huge headache but there seemed to be a little bit of everything to choose from. Since the hotel is right by a main street you can hear the cars but it didn't really bother me. I slept like a baby.

Overall I would go to this hotel again. The 4 stars is only because of parking but it seems like all the other hotels nearby had the same issue so no biggie really.

Yes, the parking is an issue at almost all of the other properties in the local area, minus a few of the new builds. But, please remember, we have a sister property within a block that will accommodate you if we run out of spaces. I'm glad to hear that you could sleep. We did recently renovate and installed double pane windows for exactly the reason you mentioned. Thank you, we hope to see you again soon!
