Quintessential Southern California Beach Vibe
The hotel is quite old and in need of a complete renovation. Wi-Fi was poor. But the location was excellent, the rooms were clean, and the service was fast and friendly. Parking is $20/day but we were lucky enough to find a public space for free right in front of the hotel. If you want a genuine Southern California beach vibe, this little motel right on the boardwalk between Pacific Beach and Mission Beach is the place! It's walking distance to the PB pier, multiple restaurants and bars, shopping and just a scooter ride away to Belmont Park with a classic wooden roller coaster. We had a fun visit based on the location..

The carpet was filthy in our room. I was afraid to walk barefoot. The floor level rooms on tne north side don’t seem safe. When we arrived people were huddled over there smoking.

Great stay! A bit noisy.
The hotel was simple— comfortable bed, nice beach view, EXCEPTIONAL reception— they were quick and helpful with every request. Downside is that the walls/ceilings are thin so falling asleep at night was difficult. Simple, but served the purpose of a place to stay. Would recommend it.
