The location was awesome. The rooms were impeccably clean. The beach was so close. Each morning we could sit on our balcony and watch surfers and dolphins. The service was friendly and professional. The bar food was ok. Valet parking was available and convenient. Otherwise parking could easily be a problem. It was surprisingly quiet in the rooms. Would highly...

Stayded there with a friend in a two bed room with view on the inner court. Nice room but still quite basic and definitely not worth 400$.. Especially considering neither breakfast or carpark are included, the latter being an extra 30$.

We just got back from a family vacation to San Diego, and we stayed at Tower23. Our #1 priority was to find a hotel on the beach, yet still be reasonably priced. After lots of research, this one seemed to fit the bill. We LOVED this hotel!! The rooms were clean, comfy beds, and perfect location. Location is something I...

Set up for cabs to pick us up, gave us recommendations for restaurants and sight seeing and brought up a bottle of champagne to help celebrate...

Comfortable hotel directly facing the ocean. The hotel staff is excellent-and the hotel is kept very clean. Fun, active bar and restaurant on ground floor. Very chill rooftop with awesome beach views. Very nice hotel all around and an excellent base for exploring San Diego.

Cool, calm and chilling hotel located right on Pacific Beach, ideally located to just stroll along the boardwalk and nod hello to all the Californians. Very clean hotel and a great room overlooking the sea / pier. Very helpful and smiling staff - just what we needed near San Diego.

Great hotel, right on the boardwalk. Very clean and staff are fabulous. Good restaurant and bar. Stayed for 8 nights and it was very comfortable. Get an Oceanside room, well worth the few extra dollars.
