Front desk staff were courteous and helpful
Can't beat the ocean views and the fact that you are literally 500 feet from the beach!

A Diamond In The Rough
The hotels location is right on the beach. The room had extra comfy bed and was modern in decor. The cleanliness was acceptable. This hotel could be fabulous with just a little attention to detail. For instance the bed is new & modern, but the dresser & nightstands although not terribly out dated were scratched & dirty giving the room a dingy overall appearance. The grout in the tile needed a definite cleaning. Some touch up paint & deep cleaning in just a few areas would improve this hotels appearance dramatically. It appears management reads these reviews & addresses the concerns, yet continues to fail to meet our expectations. We got a great price the first night on hotels.com & if the price was comparable in the future I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Although the hotel advertises a discounted rate for extending your stay, the rate is still 3x more than booking through a third party. Pets are allowed for just $50 per stay.

Older hotel with great location
The surfer hotel is old. Let's face it it's been there forever and it's nothing fancy. It is the LOCATION that you are paying for, not much else. The beds are comfy and cozy and you right on the beach. The restaurant attached to the hotel is a San Diego icon and we love it there. The rates are very high at this hotel, unreasonably high. So make sure when booking it, you understand that the high cost is for the location only, and not for luxury be any means. The $ 17 per night parking fee is just rediculious and if you drive around a little bit you can park on a side street for free, because you won't need your car anyway, in this area, you can walk to anything you could possibly want. Don't pack nice clothes or heels. This is jeans, sweatpants and tee shirt country for sure. Go bummy, be comph, laid back. Pacific beach is awesome, get out and bar hop, the locals will share your table and you can make new friends.

Great location
Have stayed at the Surfer many times. The staff is great but my room this year was below average. The bathroom walls were so dirty and disgusting. I never expect a lot because I stay here for where it's located.

Fantastic location, room was cool. Could definitely use an upgrade on the mattress and pillows but overall, great.
