We planned our trip last min, it was affordable and very comfortbale. We just wanted a place to leave our stuff and be able to walk to beach. Will definitly go back. Very accomadating for our early check in.....found a roach in the room....but its san diego so i didnt think much of it.

Room Tip: our room was backed in the corner with no view.....but it really doesnt matter in my opinion....this...

That's definitely not acceptable to us, and do a lot to try to prevent this from happening. I'm glad that you found the accommodations nice and that you will be returning again!

This property has an unbeatable location and the rooms have been updated nicely. I really can't complain about the rooms, except the wet dog smell in our suite shower. HOWEVER, I can complain about the staff and the way they handled our situation. Upon arriving, the woman at the front desk said she couldn't find our reservation. It took her 10 minutes to find it - I booked directly through the hotel so it shouldn't be a problem. We booked a suite, however, we were checked in and sent to an accessible room without saying a word. We went straight back to the desk and got some story about electrical problems from a man who was suddenly at the desk. When we asked why she didn't tell us this upon check in, she had no response. We noticed lights on in all the suites but one but we believe they overbooked. We weren't compensated beyond the room rate lowered to the current rate. The next day, they didn't know when we'd get our suite so we left our suitcases by the door. When we returned from our day we did have our suite, but no apologies or compensation. Nothing. The next morning the office was closed when we left. The front desk staff was very dishonest and didn't even tell us that we couldn't have the room we paid for, they just sent us on our way to a different room. I travel enough to know that is not how they should have handled the situation. I'm not sure we'll be back.

Room Tip: Verify your room prior to getting your key!

I am apologizing now for the service you received upon check in. We do, from time-to-time, have issues in the various rooms, like plumbing, and electrical. However, we should have perhaps given you more compensation at the time. I do hope you will return, and hope you can see the value with what we have done to the property. Thank you for your review!

I knew from the beginning that it would be a great place to stay because I had to sort out a mistake in the reservation made before we got there, and Alpha who works there took care of it on the phone. When I checked in she was there at the desk with Randy, the manager. A very professional team. The rooms were large, clean, and the location in San Diego is the perfect place from which to tour the area. There is a rooftop deck with a great view.

We stayed here for a couple of nights when in San Diego. If your goal is to be near the beach, this place is perfect! The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the beach, and is in a perfect location to the water, bike rentals, the big pier, restaurants, and bars. However, we were there to go into the city, which was a 15 minute drive- not too horrible, but not as convenient as staying downtown. The hotel itself was very nice. The rooms were clean, albeit a little small. The breakfast was pretty simple, but enough to get you through the morning. My biggest complaint about the room, however, was how thin the ceilings/floors are. There must have been a child in the room above us, but it sounded like an elephant was stomping on the floor all night. But overall, this is a very nice option for the money when staying in San Diego.

This very clean and well located hotel is awesome. I've been staying around the area off and on for the past year and PB Surfside is without a doubt the best value in the area. The front desk staff is helpful and polite.

The location is perfect also. Walking distance to many restaurants and one of the best beaches in the area.

You can't go wrong with this hotel. If you need a place to stay for a night or two and it's available give it a try.

Stayed: January 2014

Clean, modern room.We asked for one on the back/quieter side. Only one block from the beach and on Mission Blvd with lots of restaurants (including Taco Surf - good, cheap Mexican food) and a good supermarket nearby. Friendly, helpful staff. Convenient for La Jolla and Mission Bay. Breakfast OK - pastries, coffee and juice.

Everything is new and very modern at the PB Surf Beachside Inn. The location is perfect as you said with so many choices of restaurants within walking distance and the beach being a half block away! Thank you!

We thought this was a very clean hotel with a very nice staff. The location is only about 2 blocks to the beach. There are restaurants and bars near by. We booked the room for 3 nights (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and were very excited about our stay. After 2 nights, we checked out because people near our room were extremely loud well past 2 a.m. We have no problem with partying and having a good time, but do that at the bar or somewhere else, not at the hotel outside of the rooms. I rated it "very good" because of the rooms, location and staff. Had our stay been quiet after midnight or so, I would have rated it excellent.

Yes, we did have an issue with a couple of rooms this past week, and had to have those guests leave in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, that didn't help you. We are very sorry for that experience, and want you to know it's mostly very quiet. I hope, if you are in town again, that you will stay with us again!
