not clean not ocean view room
Comfortable and close to everything in Pacific Beach.
The 40$ disciunt for not having hot water in the shower the first night
No hot water in the shower the first night
I loved the location to the beach, resturants, and nightlife. To be able to sleep with the sound of the waves was GREAT. The oceanview rooms are just that.
The room was nice with ocean view out side window. Room had a wet bar with fridge and microwave. I asked for a late checkout and they gave me one. Hotel is directly behind World Famous restaurant which is one of my favorites. I am definitely coming back.
Called hotel directly and a girl said they were totally booked, so I went online to Book it.Com and rooms were available that way. Didn't understand that.
location at the beach was excellent. good access to services all around. staff were friendly and accommodating. bed was good
Car alarms going off in parking lot. Management should have those cars towed immediately. Rooms are a bit run-down and need an upgrade
huge balcony right in front of the ocean, huge room, very comfy beds, friendly and helpful staff. We only stayed for 1 night and didn't use the pool nor the kitchen so I can't rate them. Definitely worth the price.
the furniture looks a little old
It's in front of the beach, which is perfect, and near of good coffees and restaurants.
Staffs aren't so gentle, and they made a mistake with my payments, they also seem not try to understand what you're saying - assuming english as tourists second language.
There is a charge to park on their lot, but I did find street parking in the area.
The personal was really friendly, the location is great, directly on the beach. The rooms are big with balcony.
Looks a little bit poor and old from outside
The view of the roof and the hassle at check out... The woman claimed to be confusing herself and wasted time and energy I didn't have to spare.. It was a ridiculous end to a not so great visit to a low grade motel
Small and could've been cleaner
Not much. Views were good to ocean.
The restaurant in the pool yard across from rooms has blowers on the roof that are so noisy you cant hear ocean or anything else. You cant even keep your slider door open. They go all night.....not good.
Very comfy, cozy little hotel right where the action is. The restaurant is really good. We had prawns and scallops and both were delicious. The room on the fourth floor had a great view and the surf sound was wonderful. Good value for a short beach getaway.
Be prepared for no a/c. Might be stuffy in the warmer months. The room is clean and nice bed linens, but pretty generic as far as decor. It's about location, though, and for the price, it's great.
location is perfect!!! we had so many choices within walking distance for good food and drink.
the shower was small, and the drain cover was loose. this was a small maintenance issue, in comparison all else was great.
Location Helpful staff Views Beach access
Paying for car parking Otherwise nothing really
My location was ideal. I was worried about the potential noise level, but it was so quiet and relaxing. Being on the boardwalk, I left the quietness of my room and found the hoping energy of it all just steps away.
There really wasn't anything to complain about.
Loud and annoying sound of rooftop AC unit mounted in front of the balconies makes it impossible to sleep with the balcony open. The AC belongs to a separate business (restaurant) but it affects all ocean-view rooms.
Good location and beach access
Hotel was tired and in need of an upgrade to match the cost
you do have a view of the ocean
room was dirty, booked a room with two queen beds got two double beds. if you are will to trade cleanliness for a view I wish you luck.
Great location being just steps from the beach. The staff is friendly and helpful. Hotel itself is a little rough around the edges but the ample balconies were great! We didn't plan on staying there much anyway so as a place to lay our heads it did the trick!
Carpet and couch were stained. Fixtures in bathroom have seen better days.
The location is great, you can walk to many good eats. It's not fancy, but the setup is very comfortable. The staff is nice and accommodating. I've stayed here twice and plan to do so again.
Wi-fi was no good in our room, but was great in the common (pool) area. Elevator is really slow, and I was on crutches and on the 4th floor.
good for the amount it costs. Rooms facing the ocean are what it's all about!
The location of the hotel to other attractions, restaurants, and shopping was incredible. Boogie boards and buckets with shovels, were available free of charge, for my family to use every day we were at the beach. The staff, kind and helpful.
Everything was great! If looks don't matter much but personality does...Surfer Beach Hotel has it all:)
Random upgrade to a ocean view suite! Booked an ocean view room ...VIEW was priceless.....beds were awesome!! Room was clean and roomy!
Only thing that wasn't so good - the bathroom had been redone -quite nicely too ....however the shower was quite small....maybe it was just the suite one .... Not a problem for me....however anyone larger then 5'2' may have a bit of trouble moving....
