We liked the hotel. We did a quick two day trip and our main goal was to be by the beach. For that, this hotel was great! It was very easy to walk down to the beach and to food and stores right in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable place, convenient location"
We were greeted by a very gracious front desk staff who so kindly accommodated our request for a newer remodeled room on the first floor. Although we paid for $10/ night upgrade fee, it was worth it. The room was spacious with a nice kitchenette, a pull out sofabed, an office corner and modern bathroom. What we found lacking though were some more towels, […] hair dryer, could use a flat iron too. We had to request for these items. It would be nice to have complimentary wifi. The pool was a good size but wasn't heated, although this was clearly stated on the booking site. But good proximity to the boardwalk and beach. Lots of parking spaces too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
If your desire to be close to the beach but not pay a king's ransom for the privilege, this hotel will work for you. In most other aspects we feel that we did not receive good value for what we paid. 1) Parking was a challenge, the lot and spaces are very narrow and, at least when we were there, it seemed like half the guests had large SUVs or minivans. […] 2) The staff, while polite, seemed unable to provide sufficient towels. When we arrived there were NO towels in the room--other guests had a similar experience-- and we had to ask for towels at the front desk on both days. 3) The microwave in the room was--I'm not kidding here--installed (and plugged in!) in a cabinet NEAR THE CEILING. Neither my wife nor I could reach it. I had to stand on a chair to unplug & remove it and get it down to the countertop where it could be used. 4) The local hotel environment (Pacific Beach) is, shall we say, not the kind of place where you'd want to walk around at night. If you must do so, walk along the beach "boardwalk" in front of the hotels and restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice spacious hotel by the see"
I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights having great time. For the price I was expecting something worse but it certainly surpassed my expectations. Great location by the sea, ideal for surfers, you could hear the sound of the waves. Recently renovated as many stuff inside the room were new.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice sized room. Online isn't reservation said I would have 1 queen bed and access to a rol away. Upon check in, I had two queen beds in the room!! Yay!! Close to the beach and a nicely renovated bathroom made the stay even nicer!! It said online we would have a microwave and mini fridge, but there was no microwave in the room. The room could have more […] acces to outlets to charge phones, computers, etc Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"May 28, 2014"
Our room was comfortable with a view of the ocean. There were plenty of great places to eat within walking distance. Had a relaxing 3 days. Will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was nice and the location is great, but the air conditioner in the room sounded like a garbage disposal and it was behind the window curtain so no air really got out anyway...which made the room really stuffy and humid. Other than that this is a pretty good hotel, maybe it was just the room I stayed in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel near beach"
Hotel is older showing some wear but the rooms are large and comfortable. Staff is very nice and allowed us to check in early. Everything was clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location, close to the beach"
When we arrived to check in there was a couple in front of us that did not have a reservation and got a good room on the side with the ocean view (small but nice) we ended up on the other side in a dark terrible dingy room. I sent my husband back to the office because I refused to stay in the room given to us especially because we had reservations. […] They did give us another room on the other side of the hotel, which we appreciated. The room was apparently not ready, no soap (got some from made service). The room needs to be cleaned better, dirty walls in the bathroom and floor. We would stay again, the location is perfect. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the price"
My only complaint is no free wifi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel! Great Location!"
We cannot express how happy we were with our stay! The hotel is steps away from the beach in one direction and steps away from Mission Blvd. in the other. Plenty of places to eat, drink and shop. Comfortable room which included a kitchen area with refrigerator, stove, toaster and coffee pot (utensils, pots, pans and dinnerware included).Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was remodeled inside and our room had a view. Good location!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well located..near beach, boardwalk and stores."
The room was clean, the kitchen was an unexpected plus. Hotel very disabled friendly. Only cons were no washcloths,shortage of towels but soon remedied by staff. The other was pastries could have been better. All in all a very pleasant stay and will do again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed here before, and have always liked it. The location near shopping, restaurants, and beach is perfect. My only negative is when the cleaning lady came, we told we need cleaning just some extra towels. She said there were no more towels. Next time I will bring extra beach towels. other than that, no complaints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location ... Stones throw from beach!"
Staff very friendly. Ran into a situation with the shower not draining after the second day. It was immediately taken care of but quite messy while they were fixing and took quite some time. We left and came back while they were still working on it...and left again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent beach location"
Hotel is in a great location, just a short walk to the beach. Lots of places to eat nearby. The room had a mild smell of bleach, but not offensive. Staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a coffee maker in the room, but no coffee. Breakfast was meager, but enough to get started. Free parking in this very busy beach area is terrific.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location on PB"
Nice hotel. In Pacific Beach but not directly in the party scene. In walking distance of everything: food, stores, beach. We got there early but the front desk was able to check us in. Room seemed to have been recently remodeled, plantation shutters, paint, the whole 9. Only thing the toilet didn't seem properly bolted down, which is why I'm rating […] it a 4 instead of a 5. This didn't cause any problems other than having to removed the top of the tank so it would properly fill with water at times. Would definitely stay here again.

"next to beach"
The hotel is in a great location, very near to beach, which is exactly what we needed. However, the room can really use an update. We could get a very nice suite for the same price or even lower, but of course NOT next to the beach. Overall, I enjoyed our stay because of location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was great! We love the area and cant wait to come backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Birthday weekend close to beach"
Great location! Older hotel rooms very very small bathrooms with little to no space to get ready. Only one mirror in the actual room. Hardly any plugs unless you move furtunte out of the way. Extremely close to the beach & great area walking distance to everything in PB. Hotel staff was fantastic great service & even held our bags after check out which […] was a huge help due to our flight being delayed. They even extended out check out time by a hour free of charge.

My family and I just got back from staying at Pacific Shores Inn. It was a great location, just a block up from the ocean/beach/boardwalk. The room was spacious and I liked that we had a chaise, desk, microwave and fridge as well. Beds were comfortable. We didn't stay much in our room and took in the sights more, so the price is right for doing just […] that. Very pleased with our stay and we will definitely go back again.

"Call to confirm your choices"
You need to stay in one of the remodeled rooms or you will be disappointedGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is steps away from the beach. Clean room. Friendly and professional staff. May need to improve on breakfast but they are complimentary. Didn't use wifi bec I have my smartphone and there is signal there. Overall, my family and I really liked it and had a unique and wonderful time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic location...exceptionally clean."
My only complaint was that the room was not well stocked. We had a room with a kitchen that was pretty lacking in basics. No spoons, no dishtowels, no papertowels, no filters for the coffee maker. There was one bar of soap for both the bathroom sink and shower. One small bottle of shampoo and no conditioner. I went to the desk to ask for some and they […] said that they needed to order some more. We stayed for 3 nights and never asked to have the room cleaned but when I went to exchange towels they only had one washcloth. Staff was very nice and helpful in all other ways Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice and close to the beach"
breakfast could of been a lot better. and having to pay for wifi is a bit absurd.Genuine Expedia guest review
2nd time staying here. A little older but location is great. 2 block walk from Pacific Beach. Parking can suck at times, but overall good place to stay. Has Laundry and a pool. Minimal items for breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location was excellent"
Location of this hotel was excellent. Very close to the beach and shops/restaurants. Hotel showed of some wear and tear but considering the price for the location is was not bad. Second floor rooms have no elevator but was tolerable. If you are tight on a budget but want a quick beach getaway, this hotel fits the bill!Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was great. It was quiet at night and biking distance to La Jolla Cove. I appreciated the fact that they gave us really early check in (1:00) The room itself was a little run down. The carpets were completely stained, as were the walls, light switches, etc. For the price, maybe that is to be expected.Genuine Expedia guest review
Mattresses seemed new, location just off the beach in the most beautiful section of beach - north end of Pacific Beach. Continental breakfast was plain and simple. Weekend was full, finding a parking space challenging later in the evening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"affordable hotel very close to beach"
location is great! a block from the beach. we can see the water from our 2nd floor room. lots of restaurants and bars close by. don't expect too much about the room. the price is not bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Really close to beach"
2 days 2 nights ... Beautiful views on way to beachGenuine Expedia guest review
"stay here for the location, not the amenities"
The room is just okay but the location is great. The microwave advertised was missing (they quickly brought one) and though there was a coffee maker in the room, there was no coffee, sugar/cream or cups. The bathroom could use some hooks or something to hang your stuff on for there is only one small towel rod. The beach is close by and the area is very […] walkable.

"Close to the beach"
Appears to just have been remodeled. It was just what we were looking for. I would stay there again if I were to go back to San Diego.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect location , crummy motel"
It was right on the beach which was fantastic, but no idea of guest service. A coffee pot in our room but no coffee or cups. When I went to ask I was told that they didn't supply coffee. One day not enough towels, next day only one handtowel and two wash cloths. I had to shower to go out and asked for towels. It took half an hour before some came from […] the laundry (and this was five in the evening) Breakfast only pastries and coffee. Hot water for tea was luke warm.

"Perfect for a beach adventure"
The location was key. The rooms need some maintenance. Toilets that ran, wet carpet from??? Don't know what, car alarms that went off all night. BUT. It was a terrific place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to a nice beach/walk, hotel in need of care."
Hotel room a little musty, carpet damp, shower door seal in need of fixing. Close proximity to the beach and walk nice. Office staff friendly and helpful about directions.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great stray on the boardwalk for the price. Excellent food and coffeeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Location, nice staff, great for the price!"
This motel is just a few steps from the surfing sceen. Fun to walk along the sidewalk/boardwalk along the beach at sunset to see the surfers and people out walking. Also great to take a morning stroll. Just a few blocks to many places to eat, from taco shops to nice seafood resturants. Feel like you are a part of the PB ("Pacific Beach") community. […] Easy drive to most attractions. (Just like anywhere in SD, make sure to not have to be going the same direction as others during rush hour. PD is probably better than most locations.) Breakfast was just pastries, juice and coffee, but sufficient and fresh. Wifi not included, but available for about $6 per day. Room was big and modern. You are at the north end of the boardwalk, so despite the activity in the area the location is quite. Staff was eager to please (they ran to their nearby hotel to get juice when their juice machine broke.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel, one block from beach!"

"Leaky Shower and many needed repairs"
This is a hotel that is not in good repair. Our room had a leaky shower and a TV remote that didn't work well, even after replacement. In addition, the Wifi cost $6/day and was so slow that usage of the internet was impaired.Genuine Expedia guest review
