These laidback locales are known to host the occasional farmer’s market or arts festival. Mission Boulevard connects both beaches and leads north to La Jolla.see all hotels in San Diego
"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
The hotel was passable but mostly for it's location. The refrigerator was helpful but the breakfast wasn't very pleasant for a vacation holiday breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Showers have no door. Small bathroom. Had to ask for towels 2 days in a row. Scurvy neighborhood and scarce parking. Close to beach and partial ocean view. Breakfast OK. Good location and accessible to attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was very close to the beach and restaurants/bars. That is really the only plus to this hotel is the location. Room was very small, clean, however, was recently painted as it had a very strong smell when you walked in. There was construction/remodeling going on early in the morning. Continental breakfast was not worth waking up for. Homeless people […] hanging out by vending machines. If you just want a bed to sleep in, this place is ideal.

"Great, if you're not into sleeping."
The most important thing about a motel room is whether or not you can get a comfortable night's sleep. This is where this room failed most. Aside from being next to a bus stop, and having a very loud air conditioner, the bed was hard and the pillows were harder! And flat! Oh, and the limited TV channels...boring. By the way, only one chair in the room […] for two people? At least we got a room away from the construction...we are thankful for that. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
They are still remodeling so they moved my room mid stay which was an inconvenience. Nice location good price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok place close to the beach."
The stairs that lead to the beach was very close to the hotel. It was an okay place to stay. It was clean, quiet (except we could hear the squeaky mattrice above us one night), and had everything we needed. The rooms were designed offset so we had light from two directions. The water pressure in the shower was good. The few requests we had were handled […] like the staff really cared. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to the beach but service was not good."
The service was terrible. They have a coffe maker but no coffe in the room. No ice maker close by. the carpet was torned out.... not a very good place to saty..Genuine Expedia guest review
We rented two rooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. Both were fine, although the carpet in one really needed shampooing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location, average hotel room"
The hotel is really close to the beach. That is the only good thing. The breakfast is really basic (coffee and pastries), the room was ok but too expensive for the price we paid since it was peak summer season. Pacific beach itself is good for surfers but not the prettiest beach in San Diego. Coronado is far better.Genuine Expedia guest review
Have stayed here before in the north end. The room overall was a bit worn/dated. Parking was difficult the first night (there was none) and we had to park off side and walk back to room. Staff were pleasant and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach, okay room"
The best thing about this motel is that it is a very short walk to the beach! The hotel itself is a bit dated and very over-priced. Our rooms had a quaint charm (decor) and they were fairly spacious rooms, but the beds and bedding are not the best. The bathrooms have only partial shower doors, water goes everywhere, and there is no place to hang swim […] suits and towels. The pool is okay, on the small side, but was warmer than the ocean. Breakfast is very minimal, just a few pastries and breads with juice. They are doing some construction right now and so there is some building noise. If you want to be right next to the beach, this motel is a good choice, if you want a higher level of comfort and breakfast look elsewhere, especially for the price.

"Updated rooms are very nice"
The hotel is in the process of remodeling, and the contractors were on the job at 6am; so no sleeping in. My room was fine, and already updated so very nice. However, my son and his family of four were given a tiny room that you could barely get the bathroom door open as the bed was about a foot away. I would recommend this hotel for the price. The […] rooms were clean and staff was very nice and hotel close to the beache. I would recommend you ask for an updated room when you book your room. If it weren't for the construction going on I would have given them a 4. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wait until they finish remodeling."
Considering that there were units being remodeled we cannot complain of our stay of two nights, but we were told that the room given to us was just remodeled and it wasn't. Rug disappointing. Curtain rod was broken. The inside face of bathroom door was rotten. Bathroom cleaned and remodeled. The furniture and decoration were not inviting (poor taste). […] The positive side of our stay was the location, we walked to the beach only half block. The personnel was friendly and the bus stop to San Diego is right at the corner. I would give it another try after remodeling but there is certainly a lot of competition in prices. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location is great as it's a minute from the beautiful beach but a short walk from shops, restaurants etc. so they're handy but it's quiet. Easy access to buses which I used a lot. The pool area is great too. Just felt I had to work hard with some Reception employees to get some of the services I needed while staying there, as a UK tourist with no […] transport and no local knowledge.

"Not a bad stay"
Overall the hotel was what I was looking for. It's close to the beach on the upper end of pacific beach. Restaurants are just a few blocks away. Not much of a breakfast spread though. Just coffee, juice and pastries.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Construction next door"
They were in the middle of remodeling and put us in a room next to it. Banging on our walls started before 8am and continued into early evening. I'm sure the place will be very nice when done, but they weren't concerned about our inconvenience. Have to say though that the location is great just 1/2 block from the boardwalk and lots of great restaurants […] in walking distance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was the perfect location. Couldn't get any closer. It was close to everything. We were ten minutes to La Jolla and saw the seals. Made sand castles at the beach which only took about a minute to walk to. Found another beach close by which was about ten mins away and found lots of sand dollars at. The only complaint I had was there wasn't hot water […] all the time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Days at the beach"
The pool was being dained, so not usable. The brkfst was sparse, rolls and juice only. Had to pay for Wi Fi. The hotel has some rooms being remodeled, so they may be better in the future. The room was clean and the staff very friendly, so over all it was ok. We would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pacific Shores was conveniently located for us, but there were problems with the room. The bathroom outlet didn't work, thus the hairdryer which was in the bathroom didn't work. I had to get a separate hair dryer and dry my hair in the bedroom area. The phone didn't work and had to be replaced. Some of the towels had stains on them. There was no in-room […] coffee/tea set up. The pillows were kind of lumpy. The reception staff was friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is great. Three-minute walk to the beach and close to lots of good Mexican and Japanese restaurants. Would recommend it to people who want to save money.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Not as advertised, but beautiful beach"
Did not have Internet as advertised, and need to ask for haridryer. But it is very close to the beach, and it was a beautiful beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic location, less than stellar accomodation"
The place is in a great location - mere feet from the beach. However, the room left much to be desired. Although the room had been renovated in the not too distant past, the general state of the place was disarray. There doors were very beat up, there was dirt/grime/blood (possibly, obviously I didn't test it) on the main door frame and the bathroom […] door. If you're looking for a place to rest your head after drinking in PB or the like, then this is a decent option, but if you're looking for a nice place to stay, keep looking.

GOODGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Ok room. Everything worked. Noisy surroundings. Couldn't close bathroom door if you actually wanted to be inside of the bathroom. Overpriced for what you get.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room next to us had rowdy occupants. Started shouting, talking and swearing very loud and banging on the door at 1AM and continued despite our requests to "hold it down." The management was not as assertive as we would have thought. We threatened to call the police. The noise continued until 4AM. Otherwise, we were very satisfied with the hotel. […] Our daughter's sister-in-law had stayed there previously and was very satisfied and had no problems with other guests. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great value for price"
Could use some maintenance - patch walls especially in bathroom- fresh paintGenuine Expedia guest review
We have stayed at this hotel in the past and it has been much better than our most recent stay. I'm not sure if we got a bad room, but there were maintenance issues (leaky toilet that randomly flushed, rattling AC fan) that were "fixed" but not actually fixed. The free breakfast is mediocre at best - some danishes and dry croissants with juice and coffee […] - and the neighborhood is a little sketchy. The two redeeming qualities of this hotel are the price and the location to the beach - which is quite awesome. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice location but rooms need work. Our ac was broke, the heated pool wasn't heated, the telephone in the room didn't work and no bathtub for little ones to take a bath.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great place but a bit expensive right next to beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is everything"
If just referring to the actual room, then I must say that the price is way out of line. Although the room was clean, the beds were hard, the pillows lumpy and the a/c was very loud. The bathroom had new tile on the floor and in the very large shower, but the only towel rack was right next to the sink where they hung touching the miniscule counter and […] covered the only outlet. Not even a hook on the back of the door. There was however, a refrigerator and microwave which was important to us as well as only a 2 minute walk to the edge of the beach- the best feature to this motel.

"nice beach motel"
Room was nice. Decent location and a good area to ride bikes to all the beach attractions and bars and restaurants. When we arrived at 4pm front office was closed and we had to wait 30 min for someone to get there to check in. The rollaway bed I had requested was unavailabe and staff did not do anything to attempt to make it right. Terrible shower door […] which is only half a shower door and water gets EVERYWHERE. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location but noisy"
Good location for the beach. New bathroom. Nice swimming pool. Our a/c was loud and the ceiling fan was either on high or nothing. Very loud guests. Finally got quiet around 2 am and then they were up at 7am. Not good for a family that likes to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to the beach"
Nice place very close to the beach. The complimentary breakfast is overstatement. My husband brought me almost cold coffee and danish that was stale and tasted like leftover from grocery store.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not for older folks"
The hotel was very old but in fair condition. Our 1st problem was the excessive noise from kids using the driveway for skateboard riding. The walls were very thin and we were able to clearly hear the people in the next room talking. We had a coffee pot in our room but no coffee. I had to asked the desk person who informed me they don't supply coffee […] but he did have a couple he could give me. All in all not a great experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"motor lodge not hotel"
thought it was closer to the ocean (farther from the Blvd) and that the rooms would be cleaner. But the staff was very good and it was convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A bit rustic"
No free wi-fi, limited cable channels and no in house coffee all though there was a coffee maker in the room. However, the location to Pacific Beach is great and you are minutes from the sea. I might go back if there is free wi-fi. I saw a couple of hotels in the neighborhood offering it. Will probably look it to them next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed the location of the hotel. Everything in walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good lower budget choice"
Great location - its just a short walk to the beach and boardwalk and close to food and bars. The room was very spacious - even with 2 queen beds. The refrigerator and microwave were nice extras. The furnishings were pleasant. On the down side, the bathroom was small and the shower was awkward - made to be doorless with a glass wall but the shower was […] too small for that. Water got all over the floor. Also, when did hotels stop putting fans in bathrooms to help with the steam and condensation? There were no glasses in the room, had to buy our own plastic glasses. Kleenex ran out and the box was never replaced. Other than that, the room was clean, the bed linens were good, flat screen TV, air & heat worked well. No elevators if you are on the second floor. Probably will try another hotel in the future (we travel to San Diego on business quite a bit) but this was good for the price and definitely good choice for those on a budget and wanting to be by the beach.

"Great location !"
Great location, 1/2 block from beach and boardwalk !!! There were a few problems with the room: bathroom very small, 1 sink and shower which leaked and flooded carpet to room and was wet when we got there and never dried out. Hair dryer did not work and microwave and fridge in small closet were difficult to access and there was no light.Genuine Expedia guest review

"rooms average, perfect location to go to the beach"
First night it was freezing because the furnace was broken. I understand that San Diego is in a warm climate, but it got down to about 58 degrees in our room (February with rain). The next day I spoke with the front desk and they were very understanding about the problem. The discounted our room and gave us a new room with a working heater. This is […] a great hotel to stay in primarily because it is extremely close to the beach (maybe a two minute walk tops). If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel thats located right next to the beach, then this is the place for you. The rooms are average and similar to a motel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Old Motel-good location"
This is our 2nd visit. It is one of the less expensive, decent motels in the area. Staff is friendly & helpful. Beach is close as are restaurants & some shops. Not a classy area at all, so you have to drive a short distance to find better. Room heater (it was quite cold around Christmas) sounded like a garbage truck, but they accomodated us with a small […] space heater. Motel is old as are a number of others in the area. This one has been upgraded--nothing fancy, but OK. No breakfast to speak of, but nearby Firehouse Tavern has a lovely breakfast on their roof. Other good, nearby restaurants: Athena--excellent Greek. In same shopping center, there's a Chinese buffet & Indian (have not tried them), also an IHOP nearby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
