great location...easy access to the beach, many restaurants and bars in the immediate vicinity. Can't beat the price either!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Less than a 5 minute walk down to the beach, perfect location for a relaxing beach location! Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beach casual - Beach convient"
This was a comfortable casual beach motel that is located in a convient loccation. I liked being able to walk to a vast assortment of restaurants and activities on the beach. Off sreet parking, the staff was very friendly and the room was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Motel feel but the beach is right there!"
We wanted to watch the Olympics, but our TV cable wasn't hooked up, and the desk clerk didn't figure it out until the second day of our visit. The shower is beautiful, the room plenty comfortable, with an ample dressing room and firm beds with comfortable, though not super high-end sheets. I love the location --- so close to restaurants, bars, the beach! […] I will stay here whenever I come to San Diego, because it's priced right and is modestly great --- I don't look for luxury when I'm coming to a place with such amazing weather and fun things to do.

I loved this place.. It was so clean!! Very nice people.. This is gonna be my family's spot to spend our vacations at every year..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
would never recommend this motel to anyone and would never stay here againGenuine Expedia guest review
We really enjoyed our stay. We were given a larger room by accident as they couldnt find our reservation. It was really nice with a full kitchenette and couch. When checking out, the front desk person finally found our reaervation and made a point of telling me two times that they gave us the wrong room. I wasnt about to offer up extra money for their […] mistake when they knew there was just two of us. They could have put us in a smaller room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ask for updated room"
This was my third stay. The first, I got a great room - the second; not so great. The difference I found was that you need to ask for one of the updated rooms - you'll be glad you did!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel."
Very clean, nice hotel. Nice updated bathroom. Weather was cold and fortunately there were blankets on the beds.Genuine Expedia guest review
First morning the shower had to run 20 minutes before the water finally got hot for my wife. 30 minutes later I took a luke warm shower. Saturday night we got no sleep. Kids a room or two down partied all night. Cops finally came! Every morning the cleaning staff ( at least 15 people) assembled around the office (both in out) before starting their […] work day. The morning coffee and pastries were in the office. No coffee in the rooms Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"San Diego gem"
What a wonderful place to stay if you want to be close to it all. The beach right outside your window with the sound of the surf to serenade you, the best coffee and breakfast at the boardwalk, surfers to watch or join if you choose, and tons of incredible places to eat and drink at within walking distance. Will definitely be back !Genuine Expedia guest review
"First visit was better"
Maybe the rooms with 1 bed are nicer than with 2; but on my first visit the room was cleaner and more updated. This time, the coffee maker had no coffee and it just generally wasn't as nice. I'll give then another try because the overall value is still good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok motel in Pacific Beach"
With a bit better cleaning and general upkeep of the furniture this motel could be goodGenuine Expedia guest review
"Second choice, but fine with us"
When in San Diego for business, we normally stay at another hotel in Pacific Beach which was not available. Pacific Shores Inn was not in any way the same, but it was just fine. Although I had a couple of nights with an upstairs neighbor who snored so loudly I could hear it through my ceiling (a first for me at any hotel), it was pleasantly quiet the […] rest of the stay. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was very, very nice (good water pressure and nice spray), and it was great to have parking right in front of my room. My two employees were right next door and enjoyed their room as well, with no noise issues. This is an old complex -- I grew up in Pacific Beach and it was probably there when I was a child. However, it has been very well-maintained, nicely upgraded over the years, and felt very "fresh". Our convention was downtown at the Convention Center, but as I grew up in Pacific Beach I have no desire to stay downtown. All my employees (none of whom live near the beach) have thoroughly enjoyed staying in Pacific Beach right at the beach instead of downtown over the years. It's not a long drive to downtown, and the atmosphere at the beach is well worth the extra few miles. We'll be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a four star resort but very nice"
Overall I was very satisfied. The electrical plugs were loose in the walls, but they worked fine. The room was clean, there was free parking, and you can't get much closer to the beach. I picked it because it was nearby to family up the street in Pacific Beach. I tried to access the pool area but it was locked and I was too lazy to ask them to unlock […] it. Later, someone else did. The fare was very reasonable. The desk clerk said it could get loud on the weekends, but it is on the beach in a beach town... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It's quite a nice place if you love the beach. Just the room is a little bit narrow with two queen beds inside. The parking is free but the Internet do charges you a lot. And I even cannot pay it with my credit card, don't know why?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pacific Shores is a very old hotel that we have been going to for more that 30 years. We had asked for a room on the upper floor as to not hear all the floor creaking and noise above and were charged $20. a night extra, only to find it located next to the noisy Mission Blvd. Cleaning staff were good except for the last day... no towels. A call to the […] desk and we could come and pick them up. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the cost"
The location is awesome! I don't think I would pay the summer rates for the quality of hotel. The staff wasn't nice or rude they were just there. The room was in decent shape. They charge for internet which I found crazy $6.00 a day or for a week 20.00. Will stay during the off seasons but in summer will a nicer one in pacific beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hoosekeeping took our wine, terrible management!"
Our "highlights" are: 1) that the room was not ready when we checked in, and we walked into a dirty room 2) we left our stuff in the room, but specifically went to the front desk to mention that the bottle of wine in the fridge was ours, and not to remove it when cleaning. When we got back, the bottle was not there. 3)we went back to the front desk […] about the bottle, and they said they would get to the bottom of it. When we came back, the bottle was still gone, and the new front desk attendant had no idea what we were talking about. 4) The next morning (check-out) we went to the front desk, and the lady said the maids told her our door was left open when they arrived, which is a lie. They said they didn't know anything about the bottle. We saw them cleaning our room as we were leaving the property after talking to the front desk the first time, leaving about a five-minute window for a random person to walk in our room (with a closed door), leave the computer and iPad, go to the fridge shut behind a closet and take our bottle of wine. It didn't make any sense at all. The manager happened to be walking by in a wet suit on his way surfing, and came in to tell us he believed his maids and that he would pay for the bottle of wine that went missing. It was a gift from a friend, and we didn't know how much it cost. I left feeling insulted and that this place has some serious issues it needs to work out before anyone else chooses to stay here.

"A great deal so close to the beach!"
The front desk staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating, and that made for a great first impression. The room was nice, clean, and the AC unit worked well. The sound of the waves were awesome when we cracked our window at night, but sometimes were drowned out by passing cars, loud people coming home from late, or a car alarm going off (none […] of this the hotel's fault of course!) A few negatives; room wasn't vacuumed and towels were left on the bathroom counter rather than hung up. Also, the shower was weird; only 1/2 sheet of glass to shield the water and NO TUB. There is also no free wi-fi which is surprising in this day and age, and the vending machines were broken the entire 7 days we were there. Other than those items, the place was great and we'd def. stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extremely dirty carpet"
i would have rated higher if carpet was not so nasty .. they need to "zero rez" their carpetsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room they gave us was terrible dirty, the carpet seemed to be 20 years old, the windows so dirty we could not see through. the bathroom is a shame, had no door or curtain all the water get outside the shower and got all bathroom soaked wet. my husband complain a morning after and the gave us a better room but it was a bad experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, inexpensive close to beach"
Staying on the pier over New Year's, this was our overflow room. Accommodates pets. On check in, was told our reservation was cancelled, scrambled a bit, then put us in an upgraded room. Staff helpful and friendly. Looks recently remodeled, our room was handicap accessible and had a medium fridge with electric stove, some dishes and silverware, table […] with chairs on patio in front. 1/4 block to the beach. Parking tight, but always found a space. Larger TV with nonop remote. Large corner of windows with shutters. Comfy beds. Breakfast was pastries and mediocre coffee.

"Better than expected and definitely near the beach"
I have given this hotel 4 stars. While not a 4 star hotel in the usual sense, my rating reflects Expedia's definition of 4 stars as "pleasing." I found the hotel surprisingly pleasing. The room was clean and larger than I expected. Each room had either a small balcony or a small patio, most furnished with outside chairs and some with small tables as […] well. Rooms closer to the main road might have had noise issues, I don't know, but we were far enough in for the traffic to not be a problem. The hotel was, as promised, within 100 yards of a very nice stretch of beach with easy access. The included continental breakfast wasn't much -- some dry donuts and juice or coffee and tea -- but it was enough to start the day. I didn't attempt local transport, but many attractions -- the Zoo, Sea World, Old Town, Balboa Park, etc. -- were all readily accessible by car. The neighborhood also offered a handy variety of restaurants and fast food places, plus a grocery store, many of them within easy walking distance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Not much view from our room, but it was a short walk to the beach. Had a great time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will never stay here again !"
Monday Dec 23rd office staff disappeared for two hours in late afternoon. Left people waiting too check in. One woman was locked out of her room and could not get to her dog that was in the room. No explanation by office staff as to why no one was available. Lots left to be desired by room cleaning attendants. Several times they unplugged refrigerator, […] apparently thinking it was coffee pot. Very little, if any, attention to detail. TV set did not work properly. No TV channel guide even after being requested at office. Guests slamming room doors, both interior and exterior as well as vehicle doors which are parked very close to rooms. BIG NOISE PROBLEM ! Can't believe this place can have a AAA rating. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our room was one of the remodeled rooms very nice bed was firm, lots of towels in the bathroom, the only thing I found wrong in there was the shower drained really slow. Loved the bowl sink. Should have been an extra light where the micro-wave and frig is. other than those few things we would stay there again. Steps from the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was great, given the area. But that was about it. Room cleanliness was passing. Television connection problems in the beginning but after wiggling a few wires it came on. We had no towels for a few hours after check-in. We had to wait after 9pm at night until we had a crib for our toddler to sleep in, over an hour past our child's time […] to go to bed. And to top things off they said they'd refund $67 of our weekend bill for our troubles that Never Happened. Be forewarned with this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great little hotel, close to beach, lovely shops,"
extremely nice hotel for the price. Great location, easy walk to great shops, restaurants, coffee and juice all day long, muffins, croissants, etc for breakfast. Go to Kona's for breakfast, great little dive on boardwark!Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed for four nights in a room with no heat. I had to pay an upgrade, but it was worth it to me. I had an ocean view from my room. I had the same view from the table and chairs just outside my room. If I had stayed in the room they tried to give me, I would have had a view of the driveway. Also, I would have stepped out of my room directly into […] the driveway! When I told them that I had requested an upstairs room, they lied to me by saying they didn't receive a request. I called Hotels. com. They verified that I had made the request. As others have reported, the breakfast is not worth attending. I appreciated the free parking.

"Great location, beautiful rooms!"
The hotel was gorgeous. Didn't look like anything special when pulling up, but it's a hidden jewel. Beautiful rooms with nice amenities (fridge, microwave, coffee maker). Bath & Body Works products in the bathroom. Nice continental breakfast in the morning. Would highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice room close to the ocean. I will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Moderate room, furnishings and linens are a little dated. Never did get the internet rolling. Breakfast was bad coffee, sweet mixed juice and sweet danishes. Not good for a diabetic - or anyone. Also, it's one of those door, window, door, window places, so you can't have the drapes open. Free parking was appreciated. If you need a clean place to crash […] for one night than this is your best bet for the price. Pet friendly. One block from the beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Proves you get what you pay for. Needs updating. Horrible breakfast. Location is only attraction.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to live entertainments (bars etc.)"

"two different nights"
Mixed emotions. We had one terrible night with bad service, bad room and bad experience overall. Our second night, upon being informed that there are different styles of rooms, some with renovations and some without, was much different. We slept better, in a newer, cleaner room. The hotel staff was warm and accommodating, and the experience was enjoyable. […] The manager of the hotel actually spoke to me before we checked out and partially reimbursed me for our first night. (Partially) Since what they advertise on the website and on their answering machine is the newly renovated and appointed rooms, clarify which you would like when you reserve yours! The hotel is seconds from the beach, which was amazing! The continental breakfast was minimal, with no fresh fruit... in California? and you can walk, 4-5 blocks, to the mission beach restaurant/ bar neighborhood. All in all, we would go back, clarifying with our reservations and our checkin the type of room we were staying in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed for ten days. very close to the beach, shopping and dining. Biggest complaint would be breakfast. There are coffee pots in the room but ni coffee. You have to go ti the lobby and ask for it. The complimentary breakfast is pastries and that is it. The staff is very friendly. I really liked our room but we were able to see 3 other rooms and […] they were not all as nice as ours. Over all we really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

We were very happy with our stay here with the exception of the lack of Wi-fi. The gave us the tech support number but they never got it up & running during our 4 day stay. Everything else was great!

"Cheap & close to the beach"
Stayed in the older "motel" portion of the Inn. though they have done some updating like tile in the bathroom, the rest of the room needed help. I paid for a 2* hotel and didn't expect much more.

"Very convenient and pleasant location"
I was visiting family that lives in the area and stayed for 1 week. The first two nights I stayed in a first floor room without a patio. The room was very nice and spacious and was perfect for a day or two but as soon as a room opened up, I moved to the other side to have the ocean view and outside space. The 2nd room, although not as large as the first, […] was also very nice. The staff was very pleasant. I will definitely return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Place ..Good Value"
This is nice motel ..not a hotel but very nice ...parking is next to the rooms with additional parking behind the motel. Rooms look like they' ve been recently remodeled ..staff very pleasant and accomodating. Very short walk to the beach, about 100 steps. I shopped the different sites for rates on this particular hotel and found Expedia to be the lowest […] ..and a bit lower than the motel's quote too. The place is next to the Capri Condos which is just at the north end of the boardwalk ..making it about a ten minute drive to La Jolla beach. We've stayed a the Pacific shores a few times now ...it is where we stay when we come to the beach in San Diego. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place but poor management"
The room that we stayed , the a/c wasn't working really well. Then the vent were the air conditioning were located were leaking and our clothes were wet. We went to the management and told them, sad to say they did not do anything, not even checking on it. And it could have been nice if there were coffee for the coffee maker (in the room). Perhaps some […] nice complimentary breakfast (variety) just like the other hotels that we stayed at at San Diego. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We asked for renovated room and was upgraded to deluxe for free. Great room! Great location! Will stay again if price stays this great! AC was out in the room. Maintenance was pretty rude telling us it worked even when blew out hot air. Luckily we didn't need the AC to work since we had brought a fan and left windows open at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
