We have stayed at the Surfer Beach Hotel several times, not only is this the best hotel on mission Beach but Laura at the front desk is the best, you must ask for Laura she always makes our stay special and is so very kind and helpful. What a great vacation.

We picked the Surfer beach Hotel based on location, and I will gladly rate that a 5. The hotel itself is quite rundown, but because of the location I didn't particularly care. Although there was no fitted sheet on the bed, and it kept sliding off (what nightmares are made of lol) we had a great time from our ocean...

The Surfer Beach Hotel has been a hotel choice for both my husbands family and my family for decades. We got married right in front of the hotel in 2014 and recently celebrated my 40th birthday on the beach...stayed at the Surfer. Umit and Maurice truly know how to make guests feel welcome. We were offered so many options of...

The main reason, and possibly the only reason to stay at the Surfer Beach Hotel is LOCATION. It sits right on the beach in the heart of the action on Pacific Beach. My wife and I made a reservation for $125 a night, truly a bargain, when the retail price per room is usually around double that. Wait for that...

I wanted a great view of the Pacific as this was my first time seeing it, and I got exactly that. It was great to be that close to the beach and be able to hear the ocean waves. The room was clean, nothing fancy, but definitely adequate. Only thing is, the area around the hotel is a little seedy...

Stayed here for three nights. Ocean view suite had a strong mildew smell, had to leave slider open daily to relieve odor. Upon arrival, shower was broken, had to wait two hours for repair (see picture) No microwave in ocean view suite, only refrigerator. One hand towel, three bath towels, three wash clothes daily. No blowdryer. Closet had a strong...

We stayed in the sunset suite. We had an amazing time, all the employees we talked to were very nice and did all they could to make sure we had everything we needed. This place is in the middle of everything no need to drive anywhere. We wil definitely be back!!!

Let me tell you that this place might not be updated, but the view from our room was amazing. This hotel is steps from the beach, and much more, we didn't need to drive the whole time we were there. The restaurant on site was amazing and the staff was so helpful. I can not say enough about Maurice at...
