I love this hotel it is a great location everything is in walking distance, shops, restaurants drug store, dr. I loved the view and the deck facing the ocean. My kids live in San Diego and they could come visit and have the convenience of being right in the heart of pacific beach. The room was modern, clean and the...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, for us it was a perfect place to stay in San Diego. The location on the beach was wonderful. We had a sea view room with balcony to the sea which was amazing for the view and afternoon sun. The room is spacious with modern and simple furniture. Bathroom was ok. The bed...

We wanted close to the beach with very comfortable room, and we got that. Easy to settle in and relax, restaurant is great, 1/2 block to Kono's, other great spots close. Staff was really good, helpful. After 4 nights i am ready to go back. They have beach gear and bikes , didn't need to go anywhere else,

Lovely boutique hotel right in the beach. Surf wear and bike rentals outside, and the stuff is very friendly and helpful. Had breakfast and lunch in the restaurant which was tasty and quick. No spa though which is one disadvantage.

I am currently staying in hotel. Do not stay here unless you want a very loud party hotel. I have called to the front desk 4 times and spoke with the manager as well about loud party in a room next to me and in the hallway. When the situation did not resolve, I asked to be moved and was...

Jeanne, Please accept our sincerest apologies for the noise you experienced on your first night. We do our best to monitor the noise level from nearby rooms as well as the area around the hotel. Unfortunately the hotel was at capacity on the night of your arrival which limited our flexibility to move rooms. Hopefully after transferring rooms the following...

We stayed here for 4 nights, on the 3rd floor with a partial view of the ocean. However, it was still a great view. It is a lovely hotel. It was soo nice to be right on the beach. The wifi is free, valet is charged, but we got ours free for our stay in a deal. You get complimentary...

The major plus of this hotel is the proximity to the beach. The hotel is most definitely overrated and overpriced. The breakfast was cheap in comparison with room rates. The area is def beyond average, with run down buildings and mid range restaurants. The ladies at the front desk, came across as robots, displaying no character. No eye contact was...

Dear Polo222 - Thank you for reviewing your stay. We take very opportunity to learn and improve. I will absolutely share your feedback with the team. While the hotel is luxuriously appointed, we are located in the quirky and casual beach community of Pacific Beach. I am very sorry that there was any misunderstanding of that prior to your arrival....

We loved the beach location of this boutique hotel. Having a beach view and a balcony was the best. Easy to walk to many places to eat and shop. My teen daughter's favorite two stores are right next door. Helpful staff. Fast valet. JRDN restaurant on site was very good for a fine dining meal. Nice beachy colors, modern decor....

This is a cool, welcoming, well run and very well located hotel. It's well worth paying for a "surf" room with sea views - ours was on the upper floor, I can't think there's a better view in the hotel. The sun deck is a great place to relax and enjoy the views in a relatively wind-protected area. Everyone was...

Dear HarryWallis - Thank you so much for your visit and kind review. Our custom (and complimentary!) beach cruiser bikes are truly the best way to explore the beach in style and comfort.

Very comfortable room in a great location right in the heart of Pacific Beach. We had a great view of Crystal Pier from our balcony (partial ocean view room). Beach access is within feet of the hotel and they provide towels and chairs at no charge. Bike rentals are free- you can bike all the way to Ocean Beach on...
