“great location; worth the parking spot alone”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Location is right on the beach. The location is perfect if you're going with a group of friends for the weekend. I was surprised that it was fairly quiet considering our room was right above the pool. Room was spacious and clean. May be more appropriate for a younger couple/group. Parking was $17/night which is very reasonable considering finding parking in PB is nearly impossible. The only negative thing about the hotel is that the jacuzzi seemed very unsanitary - we all needed showers afterwards because there was a stench that the water left us with.

Room Tip: I read previously that rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors are quieter but we were comfortable noise-wis...

Went out to San Diego for our son's graduation from San Diego State. The rooms were very comfortable ( the best bed I've slept in at a motel); the staff was very friendly and the motel is right on the boardwalk and beach. It was fun to people watch and we enjoyed the beach. The only changes I can think that should be made are free parking ($17 per night but we parked on the street with a little walking) and free breakfast of some kind. The service was excellent- they gave me sample shave cream and antacids when needed. All in all I would recommend staying there and would do so again.

Room Tip: Some rooms look out over the public beach access and can be noisy at times, but I enjoyed the people...

I have a family of 4 with 2 boys and we had a plan to hit all the theme parks. After arriving we canceled those plans and hung out at the pool and beach instead. We rented bikes and parked the car. perfect location for swimming in ocean, playing on the beach, pool and hot tub. watching the surfers is always a plus.

Room Tip: a partial view was great, I was able to see the beach, waves, sufers and pier.

Great location right on the beach. Restaurants, stores, boardwalk shops, all within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and anxious to help out. It's the only place I stay in San Diego.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are worth the few extra dollars. Great view of the beach.
