Staff was very helpful and friendly. Good location for Old Town and in general for sightseeing around San Diego. Felt safe and travel mart and restaurant right in front of hotel.
Muy buena atencion Mala conexión wifi
I didn't like how they played the music by the pool all night long. That was super annoying
Recently renovated hotel with nice hardwood flooring! Price was great, room was always cleaned in a timely fashion, and staff was really nice. The bed was also very comfy and it was great having a fridge/microwave! Had a family above us whose kids would run back and forth at very early hours (definitely not the hotel's fault, just maybe put families on lower levels??). Would be nice to have a better breakfast. Had one tray of pastries and coffee. Even putting out cereal, some fruit, and maybe bagels would be better!
Clean, efficient check in
Not pricey. Well-located. Clean. Comfy beds. On-site convenience store/restaurant. Horrible water pressure in the shower. Poor lighting options.
When you travel you are specting to get to the hotel and relax to get an early flight. We spend a terrible night at the hotel cause of the storm and couldn't sleep cause of lack of electricity. I invited my daughter that is going thru cancer to enjoy a pleasent night and we stayed up all night to depart and get to the airport cause the electricity never came back. We talked with the manager and he wasn't helpful. We wanted to talk with someone besides him or the owner and he said no. I'm not traying to get an advantage cause of the weather like the manager said I was. Cause of his lack of experience he is not providing the hotel a good review. I don't recommend staying there they will not make you feel at ease or welcome.
Room was very clean and comfortable, one of the nicest hotels I've been too. Staff were also great particularly Yessica who checked us in, made us feel very welcome. The mini fridge in the room was disappointing it worked but did not cool well at all. It was room 112.
Helpful staff. Nice pool. Refurbished but not done well. Motel not a hotel.
Comfortable beds, simple, fast check in and check out
The cleanliness of the hotel. Except there was mildew on shower tiles. They charge you an extra $22.54 per pet per night. This is not told to you at all but you sign paperwork stating they are going to charge you when you check in. They don't tell you and you wouldn't know unless you fully read the small print. So get ready to pay extra then what you paid on Kayak. Also get ready for them to watch your every single step when your outside your hotel room. Talk about stalking.
Bed was comfortable. Room renovations were nice. Price was good. Parking lot well lit. Old single pane windows hard to open and didn't do well for noise. Right next to the freeway, so a little more insulation would have been good. Refrigerator and AC were noisier than expected. Keycard didn't work. There was no toilet paper in the bathroom. Charged my credit card the next day for use of the in room safe even though I didn't use it. I do not appreciate being nickel and dimed especially, if not informed in advance. They should have just included the cost of the safe in the room price.
Easy access to where we needed to be. Breakfast room extremely crowded. Our room had a distinct order as if something was sprayed in room to mask an unclean room. Air conditioner needed a thorough cleaning.
It was an adequate place to sleep while exploring SD
The price was right Close to a lot of good places No problems finding parking Clean Friendly staff Really good breakfast Small room (not that big of a deal though) Slightly weird smell Bed/pillows weren't that comfortable Remote control didn't work
the lighting in the bathroom LOL THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE BED BUGS!!!! DONT DO IT!
I was a little bit skeptical about booking a Super 8, but it turned out to be the nicest motel I've ever stayed at. The room was small but I didn't care since we were just a couple and we just needed a place to sleep. I was definitely impressed by how clean the room was and how friendly the staff also was! I will definitely try to book here the next time I'm in San Diego.
The room was clean; no complaints about service. Parking is extremely limited at night.
The room was small but had a mini-refrigerator and a microwave + coffee maker. The location is convenient to all area highways, very easy to get anywhere. The staff is nice and the room service s doing their best considering how badly the rooms need repairs Getting in and out of the property is super-awkward, the driveway is tiny and very easy to miss. The elevator looks like the one in the public parking garage. The rooms are tiny and the walls are paper-thin, you will hear each word your neighbours (or their TV) say. Light switches in the bathroom were half broken and the fan sounded like a jet on takeoff.
The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was a nice way to start the day. Friendly, helpful staff. I always stay at Super 8 - consistent in quality.
Reasonable price, cheap place to stay in S D. Area around hotel not too bad, seems safe enough. Bathroom was clean and in good shape, bed was clean and comfortable. It was quiet at night. Would stay here again for the price Inside facilities showing it's age. Carpeting, furniture showing wear and tear. Small rooms w too much furniture in them. Driveway entrance, parking lot is a little tight space wise. Don't expect a nice view.
We got there, slept, and left. It was really good for sleeping in and leaving from. The TV didn't have an HDMI port so we couldn't Chromecast movie musicals to it. It made me cry almost as hard as the movie musicals would have.
There was cable and it was close to the gas lamp district/convention center Very dirty rooms. Carpet had not been vacuumed. My BF walked around the carpet after a shower and his feet were turning a black color like he had been walking outside. Comforter had stains, white stains (don't even want to know) and weird gray stains. Tub had hair inside and other small debris. The inside of the coffee machine was dirty as well. When I opened the ice bucket, a fly flew out and it bugged us all evening cuz we couldn't catch it. The tv didn't work when we just got in and the guy who fixed it barely said a word to us. After leaving the room for a few hours to get dinner and coming back and deciding it was too dirty to stay in, the people at the front desk said there was nothing they could do about it. No room change or discount/refund (it was over 200$ for a one night stay). will not be staying again
It was very clean and well decorated; which gave it a modern feel.
Mike at front desk was awesome carpet was sopping wet had to stuff on floor so our wouldn't get wet
The location The staff was really rude
The staff was very nice Everything else was awful from the non-smoking room that wreaked like cigarettes to the train tracks next to the Motel to the transients sleeping on the grass in front of the check-in area
cheap prices The room smelled like smoke and urine. ended up stinking up all of our clothes and luggage.
The door locked. The hot tub was pretty good. I was never in danger, even though I felt nervous that I could have been. THE STAFF WERE SO RUDE. So rude. I am a fairly kind and patient person, but i just couldn't. When I first walked into the room the lady rolled her eyes at me and then asked how she could help me..., oh I am so sorry to inconvienece you by having you do your job. I asked to check in, she said she didn't have any rooms available and to come back at 3. I did. The lady told me to wait 30 min because the computers were down. So I went back to my car to wait. And 10 minutes after I had been waiting she came outside and laughed at me, and then told me the computers were up and that "they could've checked you in by now." Well thank you, sorry my telepathy wasn't working and I did not know. The room was dirty but I was expecting that because of the price. Ants everywhere. No bed bugs but I have read reviews that other rooms have them. Lots of creeps staying here, and the police were there the whole time, which gave me the feeling that not a lot of legal things happen here. I would recommend this place if you are an adult or adults looking for a cheap place to sleep at night. I definitely would not recommend bringing kids, and I would not come expecting good customer service.
Staff was rude/acted as if we were putting them out. Neighborhood is surrounded by homeless people living on the street unless you drive a smart car or motorcycle parking is joke. Nothing like to pictures.
said there was free wifi, but there was no free wifi
Really liked the price and location. The staff was friendly and helpful. Had a laundry mat on site. Easy access to public transportation and freeway ,places to eat , stores, attractions. The bed was a bit hard.
nice staff very noisy location (cars and trains all the time)
This motel isn't in the best location, because it's right under the freeway overpass and right next to the train. But I'm not gonna lie this motel was so clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. And if you don't want to spend so much on a nicer motel I recommend you just stay here.
Room was clean and smelled nice. Train seemed to go by every 30 minutes which was very close to my room and the train always sounded it's horn. Bed was very uncomfortable. The mini-fridge did not work. TV was an old CRT.
The quietness n the location The staff was rude n the room smelled really bad
Near old town, best price... Blanket, a little unconfortable...
Excellent location to Old Town Old place. TV's are.....could use replacing. No TV guide....
Really like the service. Room was decent and clean. No odors. Best price I can find in the area. Easy parking. Great location. Unable to get the air conditioning to work. The walls are too thin; can hear neighbor's tv on all night.
The price and location were great. Also, we appreciated their early check in time (2pm). It was easy to get to and close to major freeways. Your double message is confusing. How can one write anything they didn't like and at the same time not complain? Anyhow, the clerk wouldn't give my wife a print out of our transaction and the total, as we checked out, and he informed her that the actual price of the room varies between us and Booking.com.so he couldn't tell her what it was. I had to go in and request a print out and inform him that the transaction was between us and the motel and not Booking.com. He finally gave me a print out with the total, which was the one we expected.
For travelors that actually travel, and not lounge, then you will enjoy this hotel for it's location. The hotel is two blocks from the transit center. The transit center is a hub for trains, trollies, and buses. The trolley system is fast, and can reach all of San Diego in minutes with an all day pass of $5. The pass is also good for most bus routes. Old Town is a block away, and has the best food in all of sd. Mission Beach is 15 minutes away. I spent my time in the Gaslamp District and Old Town, and traveled with ease! Also, there is a liquor/mini store 3 blocks away for saving on meals, but most of Old Town has happy hours with super good deals on lots of food. Staff was kind, and room always fresh. The Wi-Fi was a little too slow. The pool was refreshing, but it would have been a tad nicer if slightly heated. The rooms seem to have a pre set tempature, so if you need it hot or need it cold, you're kinda stuck. It felt like it was at 67 degrees. I like it cold, so I just opened the bathroom window and the front window and created a natural draft that made it very enjoyable. I rarely stayed at the hotel though, due to my interest in really seeing the city. Comfy bed, hot showers, plenty of pillows.
Nothing really. The room was very old and had cracks everywhere. The restroom was falling apart as well as the tub. There was a weird door that had plants in it. very weird and dirty.
Location No continental breakfast
The staff was excellent. Very helpful, pleasant, and knowledgable about the area attractions.
The Inn was on walking distance from cosy Old Town and the Old Town Trolley station. The rooms were spacious and adequately clean. The lack of heating in November when night time temperatures drop to about 10°C was rather uncomfortable. Nobody likes waking up in a cold room. Upon repeated requests the staff finally managed to put the heating system on. Unfortunately the heating system had a tendency to set the activate the fire detector.
We requested and received a very quiet room. The room and hotel overall were very clean and the staff friendly. Free breakfast options included steel cut oats, no-crust quiche, and waffles. We had the oats, which were good. The fresh fruit was also high quality: oranges, green apples, and bananas. We didn't try the pool.
Located close to airport for flights out. Located close to public transit and Old Town District.
We love San Diego and the Old Town Inn. We always stay there nothing
Leaving They didnt clean my rooom oncw on a 3 day stay. Black mold in the shower. No window lock and it was only 6 inches from the dor knob. Absolutely no security what so ever
NOTHING GOOD! The room was disgusting the bathroom was even worse the only reason we didn't leave was because there were no other vacancies at a reasonable price I would have rather slept in my car. I didn't let my 1 yr old move off her blanket it was so bad.
Smelt like bleach. Window wouldn't open to air it out. Told the staff but they never came by. Check-in was at 3 but rooms werent clean until 4.
Very Clean and freshly painted Well lit Security guard walks around checking up on the property Cable TV It is the basic or bare minimum eg. Soap for hand washing but no shampoo or conditioner. Vinyl flooring not carpet makes for more noises above you I thought there was a Zumba class at 8am above me every morning lol Water turned cold after 5 minutes so shower fast!! No closet or dresser for clothes
The rooms were clean and parking was easy. The lady at the front desk was really nice and polite. The room was connected to another.
It was conveniently located. Room was smoked in. Prostituion bust as I was pulling in. Lots of people hand cuffed outside. Security guards posted in the parking lot harassed everyone coming in and demanded to know names, how many people, and which room they were going into. All my clothes now smell like smoke.
...no smelly carpet floor, love it!!
Enjoyed our stay hotel was very clean. The location was great, very close to beach and other attractions. Your staff was very friendly and helpful we could not check in by three so I called the hotel and your clerk assured me it was ok to check in late. I would come back for a return visit. Thank you for a wonderful stay
Location, friendly staff, easy check in. Hard floors very dirty- didn't want to walk barefoot. Beds SO uncomfortable. Elevator and hallways smelly. VERY shady looking clientele- people who were clearly on drugs or homeless. One of the doors to the building didn't lock so anyone could walk in. Buildings located on property in such s way that people could easily hide. Did NOT feel safe walking around alone or at night. Safest place felt in the room. Room wasn't comfortable enough thigh due to dirty floors and very uncomfortable bed. Just didn't feel comfortable sitting down on anything in the room.
Location was close to water Dirty. Bed was uncomfortable. Door wouldn't close all the way. Towels had hair on them.
I like the location and the stuff .. Parke lote
The room was was quite new and very clean. Bed was firm but supportive and sheets were upscale. Overall very comfortable room. There are only 6 parking spots for 18 rooms otherwise you have to park on the street. No ice machine, no pen or paper in room and no lamps on the end tables next to bed.
Immaculate and Pefectly decorated. Free wifi. No ice and limited off street parking. But owner offered to help us find a spot if we had trouble. No microwave, or refrigerator but we knew that.
The rooms were clean. The fact that it was in the middle of everything was very convenient. There wasn't enough parking for everyone there. I had to park on the street both nights I was there. There wasn't an ice or vending machine of any kind.
The price was great, the rooms were super clean, the shower had the best water pressure of all the places we stayed on our trip. The bed was comfortable and clean. The person who checked us in helped us find a place to park, was very polite and pleasant to work with. Overall, great experience. The only inconvenience we had was there is limited designated hotel parking available. That being said, we easily found parking on a safe street right around the corner, less than 500 feet away.
Appreciated the modern rooms. Very quiet and simple. Bathrooms were clean! No hairs found in the drains or corners. Absolutely no early check in. Even though house keeping is there at 9am, they will not give you a room till 2pm. There is no phone in the room. So you can't call to ask for anything. TV was very small.
The location was great! It was in the center of a lot of San Diego hotspots. My fiance and I were staying here for spring break to visit Sea World and Balboa Park; it only took us ~15 minutes to get to both places from here. For what we paid for and for just a one night stay, the room was sufficient. It was very clean, especially the bathroom; and it seems like they just revamped the place recently. The bed was quite comfortable. Other reviewers complained about the noise level since it's on a busy main street, but our room was facing the street, and we were able to still sleep well and spend the night without being bothered. Overall, an excellent place to stay and well worth the money. I would definitely stay here again next time we visit San Diego. Parking was difficult because there were only 6 spots first-come, first-park in front.
Great price and value, convenience of location, very friendly and helpful staff. No shampoo, conditioner, and lotion like most hotels, but this is minor given the great price.
Get's the job done if all you have to do is sleep. Towels were like dish clothes, and they only gave you 1 (despite requests for more). No shampoo or other normal stuff.
The proximity to the airport. The room was hot. Had the air conditioner while I left for a couple of hours and when I returned it was as hot as when I arrived.
Nothing Dirty, run down, and filled with drugs and homeless people
Not much. Gave us a new room when we asked for one because there were roaches in our first room... Hair on the towels when we checked in, roaches in our room, staff was not very friendly and seemed bored or bothered when we needed to talk to them. We booked a king sized bed and they gave us a double, so we got the wrong room as well. Breakfast was just muffins and danishes and coffee. Really basic cheap food.
i will never tell anyone to stay there. it was load and annoying and i am petty sure the room next store was a hooker. i could hear her night visitors all night. i wanted to get a night of sleep away from the roommates. i should of just stayed home. i left early in the morning because i didn't feel safe there.
Other guests seem higher class then nearby hotels. Working or busy people that come back at night. No partying drinking weed tinsel with.
Clean Well maintained Had everything they said it did Great price Would definitely stay there again Took a few minutes to get to it from the freeway.
Great for the the price. Has everything needed if you're just going for a one night stay. Beds were clean as well as the bathroom. Planning on staying for another night now. Pillows were kind of flat. TV slightly outdated.
Staff was responsive and friendly. For basic economy lodgings, it was fine and I had a good night's sleep. Electricity went out in my room around midnight. I was sitting in the dark. A circuit breaker had obviously tripped when I turned on the light over the bed. Called front desk. No answer. Walked down to office. Man behind the desk who checked me in saw to the problem immediately and I had the electricity back on in short order. Also, be aware that they put a $100 hold on my credit card, which was released immediately without problem on check out, assuming I hadn't smoked or had pets in the room. There were a lot of cigarette butts in the ashtray at the bottom of the stairway that hadn't been emptied or swept from the stairs.
Great location, clean room, extremely friendly staff (Alberto was great), nice pool & hot tub. I would definitely stay again based on price.
Es war sauber.. Und ein günstiger preis. Das Bett ist gut. Das Personal ist unfreundlich. Ungünstig Lage zum centrum. Es ist sehr laut
not much rooms were small restrictive for smokers no pool no amenities beside room and tiny coffee/breakfast area in am cramped parking would not stay there in any future trips
Location was great with lots of eating options near by and only a few minutes from sea world and not too far away from shopping centers and sea port village. Not too pricey. The place was kind of run down and it was obvious that the staff did not like their job, definitely not the friendliest and definitely didn't bend their back to accommodate people.
Not being negative, actually rooms were clean . But we were just surprised and should have done our homework. Not the type of place to go with a family, single people or guys trips ok butnot kids. It reminds you of a seedy motel, across the street from a strip club, nit a nice neighborhood. If yoy're ik with all that , then its not bad.
Bed was comfortable Old building, nude businesses nearby
Front desk manager was kind, thoughtful and fair. The physical condition is not suitable for anyone looking for a room using an online hotel search site. We booked it because of a very (very) misleading review score of 4.5/5 on a major hotels website... admittedly by only a few reviewers. Fortunately, we did not pay in advance through the website, which we will not be using again. The front desk manager (and possible owner), was fair, thoughtful and willing to cancel our reservation as soon as we looked at the room. I don't want to be disrespectful in any way, so I would just say that it is inappropriate for singles, couples or families that have any other options. At an advertised cost of $140 per night and a score of 4.5, it was hard not to be shocked upon arrival.
The hotel is in the middle between the beaches and downtown, close to the old town. This makes it excellent for visiting the whole area. The room was nice and comfortable, Internet was ok. Sometimes parking is not enough for all guests, but you can easily find a place in the neighbourhood. The room was not cleaned completely everyday. Breakfast is poor and there is not a room to serve it. For someone traffic and airplanes can be a little noisy.
Price Water pressure was good. Refrigerator/Microwave/TV Clean Additional paid deposit of $50 required at check-in. Staff gave room and access key to another person who walked in on us after we were there for 15 minutes. Very few electrical outlets, and what there were would not hold plugs in the wall. Too dark, not enough lighting. Stairs are steeper than modern motel. 2nd floor railings are lower than modern motel. Could not use bathroom outlets to charge electronic devices - when the lights timed off, so did the outlets. Door key cards had to be replaced 4 times over the time I was there - and I didn't have them next to any cards, wallets, etc. .....TOO MANY INCONVENIENCES.....
There pool was nice Very small room, old ran down motel very poor maintenance, all electrical outlet's were old, and when you plugged things in they came out. I plugged my cell phone in the only outlet that worked in the bathroom and while I was sleeping the gfci went out and I woke up to a dead phone for the day. One more thing that bothered me a little, I asked the front desk if they gave a military discount and she said yes but I can't get it because I was already getting a good deal.
You can't beat the location Not the greatest hotel in the world but we didn't care because we were at the beach the whole time- easy walking to all shops I would stay here again Thin walls Very soft beds
Small, clean rooms. Not much in the way of in-room comfortable seating space. Nice area in the courtyard with seating around tables. Bathrooms are small - be careful you don't hit your head on the sink when you're on the toilet. Still, I'd stay there again. Location, location, location.
The proximity to the dog beach it's a plus. The room was small by the courtyard for one person and two dogs. Comfortable bed, tasteful modern furnishings. Needs a microwave, coffee maker and toaster. Love the patio with the view of the Ocean, but not the homeless and hippies been loud and obnoxious but I guess this is been an on going issue in Ocean Beach. I stayed six nights and the last three nights was lots of partying at next room, and the person on the other side of my room was snoring very loud that kept me up. The courtyard is nice, with tables and beautiful fountain in the center with nice views of the Ocean. The hotel only offers coffee in the morning, I think continental breakfast should be included for the price. The hotel attracts young crowds who like to party and be inconsiderate for the rest of the guests. It's a non smoking hotel but smoking is allowed in the courtyard and the room patios. I could smell the smoke from people upstairs smoking and throwing the cigarette butts a ashes over their balconies. The location it's a plus for beach goers and surfers, dog lovers, young people but not so much for relaxation.
Great location. Next to a fabulous brunch place and less than a 5 minute walk from beach and restaurants. Super comfy bed. door was a little rusted and there was only a shower instead of a tub/shower.
Right on the beach. Close to all the restaurants and shops. Staff was very friendly. Free parking. Nice courtyard. We will stay here again but will pay the extra money for the king ocean view rooms. Very old, run down looking room. Needs updating. We reserved a regular queen room. The 1 window in the room looked out onto a brick wall (which was painted with a beach scene). The bed was definitely NOT a queen and was VERY uncomfortable. If you check in and they try to give you room #112, ask if they have ANY other room.
Location was ideal for beach and eating and shopping A little too pricey for what you got but location made it bearable
Good location. Relatively quiet (except for being in the flight path). Convenient to all Ocean Beach shops & restaurants. Room is basic but comfortable and clean.
Right in front of the beach hardly any parking, rooms way to small, party hotel gangsters where staying right next to us and party all night and smoke right next to our door!!
The location was great. The view is awesome. Very quiet and friendly. If you wanted to bring your pet they are great with that. Second time staying there and will be staying there again in the future.
The atmosphere! It was quaint, clean and right across the street from the beach!
Then ocean view Amenities. Very poor standard. I felt like I was in a 2 star hotel in some third world country. That place could have done better. The bathroom felt filthy. And what's with that air conditioner beside the bed?
Location location location nice bed and washroom. Right next to a 2 block strip with everything from souvenir shopping to burgers or sushi The room was a bit small but everything was great besides that fabulous even. I will return for another stay.
Location was good. Staff was kind and helpful. Shower drain clogged. There was not any free breakfast like Kayak said there would be, really bummed about that. Pretty spendy for quality and bathrooms could have been cleaner.
The location was the only good quality about this hotel. We were put in a room that had a roach problem, it was disgusting. When I complained to the front desk he did absolutely nothing to compensate me for having to stay in a filthy room. This should be a hotel listed for one night stands, not for a couple wanting to stay waterfront. I will never stay here again.
Location Outdated and uncomfortable
Location & price. Free Wi-FI was faster than more expensive hotels Tiny room & extremely basic. Not enough parking.
LOCATION, comfortable bed, easy parking, clean room, value, ease of check in We stayed on the bottom floor and we where able to hear the people above us walking around, the bathroom was really small, room decor was dated
Friendly service, clean room Nothing
Clean rooms with a mini fridge. Free parking with spots open. 5 min walk to little italy. 30 minute walk to gaslamp. Nothing. Everything worked out great for us.
great location... the toilet clogged twice after my boys used it... :(
The view of the ocean was great. Our room faced the street. It is not luxurious but it is clean and the value is outstanding. I also appreciated the remotes for the television - they actually clean them! The staff in particular Michele (I believe that was her name) was friendly, accommodating and helpful. I would definitely stay there again. Not much I didn't like, again the value was great so if you want a ton of frills and luxury look elsewhere.
Loved the location! Very close to the beach and near many delicious restaurants. There were also nice bars within walking distance that my friend and I (ages 24 & 25) had a great time at. The staff was friendly and rooms were neat and clean. Not too bad of a drive to downtown. Overall a great place!
It is close to the Pacific and Missin beach areas - a good place to have a rest
I'm rating this on the fact we were given an updated room. Room was clean, new and plenty big enough for 2 adults, 12yr old and 5yr old. Can't beat the location and free parking! No resort fees no weird add ons... We will stay again and already planning next trip. We walked to dinner and lunch places everyday, tons of options close by.
The room was quiet and located within walking distance of the beach. The shower was the worst shower I have ever had. There was absolutely zero water pressure. It felt like I was taking a shower in a light rain storm. The room wasn't excessively dirty but does need a little more elbow grease in the bathroom.
Great location good price. Low budget.
It is a small hotel in a quiet area of a nice beach town, very short walk to one of the easiest beach accesses, and a beautiful view of the beach from the top of the cliff as well. It is also a short walk to numerous eateries and shops and the main street of Pacific Beach. We stayed in a queen deluxe room that has been partially renovated. It was very spacious, with high ceilings and pleasant decor. It was maintained adequately though showing signs of age and effects of the moist ocean environment. Very nice TV in beautiful piece of furniture that also has 3 large drawers for clothes, etc. Though not a complete breakfast, an assortment of high quality pastries was offered each a.m. along with several juices and teas; hot coffee was available throughout the day. The staff was wonderful - always cheerful, helpful and kept the grounds spotless throughout the day. Having covered parking was a plus as was the pool. When my aging mother injured her leg on our last day at the beach and could no longer walk upstairs, they found us a room on the lower level and helped us change rooms at 10 p.m. - we really appreciated their attentiveness to our needs. One building has front patios with round tables and chairs - nice feature if you are in that building, and pleasant to look at even if you're in the other building. It's just a pleasant, relaxing place to stay while enjoying the beach and surrounding San Diego area. The rooms are a little quirky - no shower door or curtain and the 1/2 glass partition doesn't really contain the water so the bathroom floor gets wet. (Not a problem in the renovated rooms). The only outlet for the coffeepot puts it on a shelf above your head rather than on the counter - dangerous & inconvenient. One of our 2 rooms did not have a microwave, the other had a door missing off the lower storage cupboard. You have to ask for everything ... towels, washcloths, bath mats, coffee for the coffeemaker, etc. They are quick to provide what you need, but it can be a long walk to the office if you forget something or don't realize it's not there.
Location near ocean and multiple shops/restaurants within walking distance Heated outdoor pool Continental breakfast was limited (coffee, juice, pastries) as expected, BUT I would have liked liquid coffee creamer instead of powdered creamer.
Nice location on beachside of larger street (250 yds from beach), noice not bad at all. Ocean glimpse from most rooms, nice patio with chairs and table just outside room, motel style with rooms one stair up Continental breakfast just a muffin. Bonus is fridge and micro in room. Carpets could have been less worn. Could do without the breakfast
It was a decent location with several restaurants in walking distance and of course the beach very near by. I was worried about parking when I saw the number of spots but we never had a problem finding an open spot. Our room keys kept malfunctioning. The lady from the office said this happened quite often. The bathroom had no vent fan. Some of the staff was friendly but one of the men at the desk seemed annoyed that we needed to request something. At one point I was in the office and noticed they had left out several contracts for other guests which seems like a privacy concern.
Was just at pacific shores inn at end of June 2014. This hotel turned out to be nicer than I had expected. Not a glamorous place but it's a beach town and the hotel has a beach shanty sort of feel. Room was clean & bathroom had been recently renovated and was very pretty. Ultimately the biggest plus is the proximity to the ocean. Literally half a block and you're there. Also some good restaurants and shopping within walking distance. I was there with my teenage and college aged children and they both said they'd come back here next year.
The staff members were very accommodating. They had run out of towels and promised to deliver them right away. They brought them and apologized for not having them when I first asked. There were muffins, pastries, and fresh coffee in the office each morning. The pool was very clean and mutt kids loved it. It was very close to the beach and waking distance to shops and places to eat. Staff suggested a few places to eat that turned out to be great. People above us were kind of loud. The A/C was a little loud.
located right next to pacific beach - great location. rooms were large and clean. bathroom with power shower. big plasma tv - very enjoyable stay. continental breakfast was not great.
