My family and I booked 4 nights at the Surfer Beach Hotel for some spring break fun. This place is great. It is not a five star hotel, but it is not priced like one either. The rates are reasonable, and the location is great. The staff, especially Daniel and Adam, are the best. We had some things that needed...

Surfer Beach is a basic economy hotel that is great for the price. The beds were comfortable and the rooms quite clean. The people at the front desk were unbelievably helpful. I needed something they didn't have, they got it for me! We had a very serious problem with some horrible neighbors and our rooms were upgraded and the problem...

Great little hotel to stay in for a short stay on Mission Beach. Wee little rooms and beds and high prices due to perfect location so for usit was the ideal place to stay our first night in town while we got sorted. Great little pool. Can't beat the restaurant at the hotel or it's sister a few blocks away!

Came down to San Diego for a quick weekend getaway and when we arrived at Surfer Beach hotel we knew we made the right decision. The manager Daniel was extremely nice and went out of his way to get us through the check in process quickly as well as getting us an upgrade!

Dear Brent J, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. At times guest book our standard rooms because they want the best price and then when they get here, they realized they really want an ocean view.

The only thing this hotel has going for it is the beach location.The moment I opened the door a wave of disinfectant odor hit me in the face.

Dear Kkis, I am sorry to read of your disappointment.

In an effort to accommodate your early arrival, just past noon, the Housekeepers had just left the room before you...

Daniel at the front desk was phenomenal! He helped me and my friend in a hotel crisis and gave us the best deal on town. It's a gorgeous hotel with amazing service. He provided Coupons to local restaurants, baggage service, advice on attractions in town and so much more. Best hotel in San Diego by far!

I was shocked at how great the service was at this hotel. In the middle of spring break I expect the bare minimum but Daniel the receptionist was the most hospitable person I could imagine. He really made it feel like a home. I never write reviews on websites but he deserves it.
