Right on beach and friendly staff but they check out at 9pm and we had some really loud and drunk neighbors that were screaming till 3am. No one to call except police to get them to be quiet. Room was decent. Get what you pay for. Small shower and pillows rock hard. The breakfast is sparse and parking is 20...

Thanks for taking your time to give us a review. Glad you found the location great and the staff friendly. Sorry to hear about your neighbors and the loud noise.

Fantastic and simple inn right on the beach. Exactly what you need for a peaceful stay in San Diego. The room is simple and comes equipped with a fridge, microwave and comfy bed. The service was exceptionally friendly and thoughtful. Great breakfast that includes juices, coffee pastries, bagels, yogurts and fruit. The inn even includes beach rentals (surfboards, umbrellas, bikes)...

We arrived in PB in the evening after a long trip from Santa Cruz . All we wanted was to relax . We went to check in. The Front desk manager made us feel very unwelcomed.. He gave us a very hard time checking in to the point of us not really wanting to stay now. Other than that ,...

Amazing little hotel right on the beach and walking distance to bars, restaurants and shopping. The hotel rooms are small but ideal for anyone who doesn't plan on staying in their rooms aside sleeping. My husband and me went for 5 nights in March 2016 to surf and visit friends. This hotel was perfect for us. It was right next...

The staff was very friendly and the cleaning technicians did a great job. The location is amazing, steps from the beach making it extremely convenient. I highly recommend reserving a parking spot, they only have a couple of spots and the rest is public parking thats always filled with beach goers. We reserved room 10, million dollar view!

Nice little hotel infront of the beach in PB close to shops, restaurants, bars, beachwalks, etc. The staff is very friendly and always looking that you're having a nice stay + the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Only cons are parking and noise if you stay on a busy weekend

Stayed here for 2 nights with family. Price is right, location is excellent, and the staff is super friendly. Don’t look to be spoiled by amenities of the hotel, but if you want to be on the beach, and save your wallet, then this is an excellent choice. Also, the BEST fish tacos are just around the corner. Oscar’s. Unbelievable....
