Surfer Beach Hotel, San Diego
Great stay
I got exactly what was in the pictures . Stay was great. I don’t ask for much out of hotels , they swapped my towels daily , fixed the sheets and bam. I will def be staying here again. Every room has a great view to the beach it was amazing sleeping to the sound of the waves

On the beach, what more do you need!
Great location, room wasn’t the ritz but it was decent! My only complaint would be the circulation of the air from one side of the room to the other. Coming back to stay again next month!

Chair less at the surfer!
Best part of surfer is the location right by the beach! The bed was not comfortable. No chair or table in the room ,so if you want to sit it’s on the bed. Front desk very friendly! I remember when they didn’t charge for parking! Now it’s $20 per day!

Needs a makeover
I have stayed at the Surfer Beach Hotel 4 times now and although it’s in desperate need of a makeover, it’s right on the beach and next to our favorite restaurant World Famous. The shower is very small so you can barely turn around. There are no microwaves but there is a refrigerator in each room. And there is no A/C in the ocean view rooms. The expectation is that you leave the slider open to get the ocean breeze. So if they could make a few upgrades, I would give it 4 stars instead of 3.

Fabulous location
Great location, dog friendly hotel. If you want to stay at the beach I recommend Surfer Beach hotel. Rooms are a little outdated but very clean, comfortable and had everything I needed. Great staff. Don’t pass this hotel up.
