Are you in the doldrums? Winter weather getting you down? Need a little beach time? Then this is the place for you! Just a few nights spent in a Surf Pad had me totally rejuvenated! Falling asleep every night with the waves pounding the shore-it doesn't get any better than this. And only two hours by plane from Denver where it was minus 9 the night before I left.
Seriously, I loved my experience here. Incredible ocean views and sunsets. One of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. Plus, no left over tobacco smell in the room whatsoever. I have been running into problems with previous occupants smoking in the guest rooms even when the hotel is non-smoking like this hotel is. But that was not the case at Tower 23.
Plenty of hot water for showering. If anything could be improved upon it could have been the mattress. I prefer a hard mattress; this one was soft and I kind of rolled into the center. Not enough support for my old joints!
Staff were always friendly and eager to please. Lots of communication as in emails before arrival. This is a small hotel and the front desk will learn who you are. Free coffee and newspapers in the lobby every morning. Just felt at ease, welcomed and comfortable the entire time.
I was hampered because I did not have a rental car but saw at least one rental car agency in the Pacific Beach area, close to the Hotel. Next time I will get a car. Taxis into the city average $40 one way and that adds up.
There was no concierge on duty for two of the days I was there and I needed information that the front desk did not have. I was pretty annoyed by this but just went with the flow and enjoyed the beach area. When a tourist has never been to an area, the hotel concierge is really valuable. They usually have information not found in a brochure.
The room I was in with the full frontal ocean view was a bit noisy in the evenings from the restaurant below but the conversations, dining always wrapped up by 10:00 p.m. Breakfast is by room service only but there are plenty of coffee shops within walking distance.
Looking forward to my next visit. Bring your camera and binoculars-great place for photography and bird watching.
