The Hotel 's website shows pictures of nicely decorated and kept rooms. It's a bait and switch. If you don't know to ask for a room like in the website pictures you will get a Dump!!!! The paint was peeling, stench from a toilet that overflowed plus the wet carpet, curtains about to fall off the wall, peeling chairs, the...

I'm on your side with this. I know and expect we will be redoing all of our older rooms this winter and spring. I will forward this to my maintenance staff. Every year, following the busy summer/fall season, we have to go through and redo all of the items you listed. I have one person from my staff that only...

This Inn is pretty decent, with an amazing location. My wife and I and our 2 young daughters spent 2 nights there and were very happy with the room we got and the value we got for it. It is a bit old and there aren't many options for breakfast, but again if you want more you should look for...

The location of this place is what makes it worth the stay. It's close to the beach and lots of restaurants within walking distance. Mission street is a block away. The rooms were decent but the bathrooms were rundown. The worst part was a weird smell that came from the rug. It made the whole place feel dirty. Also, you...

Thank you for your comments. We are planning to renovate the remainder of our rooms very soon, thus eliminating the old carpets that could no longer be serviced. We hope to see you again soon.

I have been coming to this lovely inn every summer for years and was happy that they updated rooms a few years back - but not all! During our last visit we were given a non updated room and it was terrible! Falling apart and stinky (Room 39 to be exact). Luckily the friendly staff was very accommodating and changed...

At the moment, it does depend on the availability. We are planning a renovation that will make every room as nice as any other in a couple of weeks. I hope you will come again.

Had two chairs that looked like a cat scratched them up for years.. they moved us to a newer remold led room that was still dirty and not taking care of.

Our one night stay started with us opening the door to an unclean room. The front desk is super slow!. There were four of us and we only were given 3 towels. The air conditioner was so loud too. But, worse than that is the fact that the walls are so thin that I opted to deal with the loud...

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. There are times that the front desk does get backed up, but we do allow early check ins to hopefully alleviate the bottleneck at the normal check in time. Also, we are renovating very soon!

I stayed here and paid almost 300 for one night. It was decaying, I was afraid to touch anything in room. There were drips all over the doors.

Quiet standard hotel situated a short 2 blocks from many shops and restaurants, this was a very nice stay. Room contained 2 comfy king size beds, spacious floor plan, fridge and coffee maker standards. Some rooms with ocean views.

Stayed here for one night before checking into a condo. One block from beach and 3 minute walk to all the restaurants and shops. Place was very quiet at night, lots of families. Room was clean, nothing fancy and right for the price. Check-in was easy and very friendly, free parking.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pacific Shores Inn is a quaint inn located at the north end of Pacific Beach. Many of the rooms offer some views of the ocean, and restaurants and shops are just a couple of blocks away. The boardwalk is a 2.5 mile stretch that will take you from the north end of Pacific Beach all the way to the south end of Mission Beach. As you stroll down the boardwalk, you will find ocean front shops and restaurants as well as the famous Belmont Park in Mission Beach. Bike, and surfboard rentals are located within two blocks so there is no reason to pack those items when visiting us. And, every room has a microwave oven, refrigerator, and a coffee maker for your convenience. Some rooms also have full kitchens for those who require that. Parking, and a continental breakfast which includes juice, coffee, and danishes are always free. ... more   less
