3.0 / 5Good
Tower23 was a nice-looking hotel with nice rooms. My only complaint would be that the hotel feels very clubby and it was clearly a "party hotel" with drunk girls screaming in the hallway all night, so I wouldn't recommend it for a relaxing romantic getaway (: A lot of rooms face a large public patio. It was cold while we were there but I can imagine it being annoying / no privacy during warmer days. "Partial ocean view" in many cases just means "No ocean view, but you can see the patio!"

"Tower 23 Hotel is an ocean lover's dream"
We requested a King bed and were provided a suite overlooking the ocean - words can't describe the beauty of the sunsets and high-tide sunrises. The staff were extremely attentive and the place was spotless. Contemporary-modern styles provided a nice, clean look. While the neighborhood is a combination of small hotels and some college-type bars, the hotel is like its own little world and you don't get the college atmosphere intruding on a peaceful time, if that's what you want. We'll stay again - definitely. It was worth the cost.

"Modern, clean design and perfect location"
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and are so glad we did. The location is perfect for someone who may not want to rent a car in San Diego, as free bike rentals are available on site. Being on the beach right on the PB board walk is ideal for dining and sunbathing/swimming. The hotel was just the right amount of luxury without being pretentious - it's clean in design and upkeep. We received complimentary rum punches upon arrival and took full advantage of the Tower Deck's oceanfront fireplace - one of our favorite things at this hotel. A point of advice: avoid a room on the street, as sometimes the sounds of trash pickup and truck deliveries interfere with otherwise delightful ocean sounds. Only negatives: the bed actually made my lower back hurt, but was objectively comfortable (boyfriend was happy with it). We stayed for two nights but all of our glassware was gathered during room cleaning without being replenished for the next day. We went to Rum Jungle for acai and coffee so it's really not a big deal, but we would have liked to take advantage of the Keurig machine (great perk) with coffee mugs provided in the room, but we never got them or water glasses back! Thanks for the great visit!

"GREAT HOTEL!!!"
We absolutely loved our stay at Tower 23! The location was ideal - steps to the beach and boardwalk, lots of great restaurant choices and shops. The hotel offers beach chairs/umbrellas, towels, boogie boards, bikes and other amenities all included with your stay. The staff was friendly, courteous and efficient. Try to get a room on the second floor - the roof deck is there and adjacent to your room terrace.

Great hotel if you get the right room. The surf pads look right over the ocean and Boardwalk. If you are into people watching its perfect. It's a bit noisy because of all the action going on right beneath you but we loved it. Not much on amenities such as a pool or spa but it didn't bother us. Super close to excellent restaurants and bars... We stayed at the Coronado bay resort after here and it was a totally different feel. Large resort, big pools, etc but it was land locked and you felt like you couldn't leave. Tower 23 was the best!!!

"It is not worth it."
The lock to the patio was broken. The hot water in the shower took more than 5 mins to come and also on and off during the shower. We enjoyed dinner during last trip so we thought we would try the hotel. We actually were very disappointed. With more than $400/night for a partial ocean view, I expected to have better room than we stayed. I don't think it is worth it.

"Nice hotel on the beach"
First of I'll say that the staff here is top-notch. Front desk, valets, room service, everybody is friendly and helpful. I e-mailed a couple questions prior to the trip and received quick answers. And the complimentary drinks on check-in were a nice touch after a long day of travel! The rooms are clean and modern. We had a full ocean view room with an excellent view of the ocean and beach, and a good-sized balcony. We were also near the "Sky Deck" - the hotel's 2nd floor deck with chairs, a fire pit at night, and a small pool that was nice for cleaning sand off your feet coming back from the beach, but not much else as it was only a foot or two deep. A little disappointing the hotel didn't have a pool or hot tub, at least not that we noticed anywhere. A nice area near lots of restaurants and nightlife. There's also a boardwalk right outside the hotel that runs down to Mission Bay, and the hotel offers free bike rentals to guests. Only about a 20-30 minute drive to/from airport and downtown (w/o rush hour traffic). Some reviews mentioned the noise from the restaurant/bar, which I agree with - on weekends you notice the noise from the restaurant just down the hall as soon as you enter the lobby. You can also notice the noise from outside on the balcony, although the ocean waves mostly drown it out. And when you close the door to your balcony, it pretty much muffles all outdoor noise. Overall a nice stay at a nice hotel.

"$$ Pricey $$ No amenities"
We stayed one night as an end to a work conference trip. My husband wanted a nice place for us to stay. It was nice and has 4 stars. There was no work out area, no pool, no hot tub, no tub in the room. I was disappointed in this! No amenities! We also had to pay $20 to valet park the car. Our room was partial sea view and was on a street. We were on the second floor w a balcony. It was loud from the happenings outside. I tried to shower in the am after a sweaty run. Turned on the shower and no water came out! Not sure what was going on. It resolved itself within a few minutes. Took 30-45 seconds for hot water. The mattress was probably the best Ive ever slept on though. The balcony sitting area was nice w fire pits and plenty of seating. We were the only ones out at night which was kind of nice. The front desk was helpful and friendly and they did extend out check out 1 hour. Long story short- EXPENSIVE hotel without much else to offer.

This hotel was amazing. Staff members very friendly. Room was gorgeous and spacious. Bed was extremely comfortable (I'm usually a heavenly girl). Partial ocean view enabled me to watch the sunset right from my balcony (felt like a full ocean view to me). Great location right in the center of Pacific Beach. The Tower Deck was a great way to spend the day relaxing. Free bike rentals were a pleasant surprise. Excellent happy hour specials, drinks, and food at JRDN. I recommend the chili mango margaritas.

Spent seven nights at this small but well appointed hotel. Entire staff was very friendly and courteous, and made our stay one to remember. Location is superb, on the beach, near good restaurants and shopping -- something for everyone. We were provided with towels, chairs, and toys for the beach without question or charge, and bikes are available as well. Rooms come with well stocked mini-bar and snacks that are fairly priced. We did run down to the grocery store nearby for fresh fruit. Would be nice to have refrigerator to use for soda and such, but ice is available for coolers. Turn down service with chocolates on the pillow made us feel pampered.

The attention to detail and customer service is what makes Tower23 hotel a great place to visit. The cuisine, at JRDN restaurant was top notch. The vibe was current, modern and chic. The concierge, a local, was exceptional in creating an itinerary for our bike riding tour, which was an adventure and a very beautiful scenic route to LaJolla. Beautiful sunset views, location, and people. We truly enjoyed our stay at Tower23!

"On Trend in PB"
Tower23 is an indisputably nice hotel -- it's new, clean, and stylized. But there are small things that lead me to believe that the hotel is focused more on being trendy than on being truly comfortable --- such as these modern looking, but terribly cheap feeling & uncomfortable chairs for the private patios. Or the frosted glass sliding doors for the bathrooms that look great, but provide very little privacy. Overall, I would recommend the hotel because it was clean and the location is absolutely perfect. But just keep in mind that the space is definitely trendy in a way that at times may sacrifice comfort.

"Right on the ocean!"
My mom, financé, and I went to San Diego for the Super Bowl. Pacific Beach quickly became my favorite beach and being able to stay at a hotel feet from the ocean was amazing. The hotel staff were extremely accommodating and friendly, the room was clean and the in-room tub was great to soak in at the end of the day. The restaurant had tasty food and friendly staff, also facing the ocean. It would be the absolute cherry on top to have a hot tub out by the nice private fire place, but that is the only thing I could add to the review that I felt the premises was lacking. We had a very beautiful stay at Tower 23 and we will certainly be back! PS: the little ma and pop breakfast and coffee bar to the left of the hotel was delish, and we enjoyed grabbing snacks there and watching the ocean waves and surfers. Starbucks here in Seattle doesn't have offer those views!

The only two gripe about the Hotel was that one of the front desk associates could not recommend a good restaurant in the area and they were kind of stingy with the morning coffee. But fortunately by asking enough, they brought plenty to the room. If you are looking for a Hip, Fun place to stay, Tower23 is an awesome choice.

So no matter what we should of not been locked out period. They even had my credit card for purchases in the hotel in which they managed to use. After talking with a manager of course the same song and dance sorry we will make a note so this don't happen again. We will compensate your room..No they did NOT.
