We have stayed here twice now and absolutely loved it both times! The location is perfect. Right on the Pacific Beach boardwalk, so plenty of opportunity for people watching as well as access to local restaurants and other attractions. We could see the Crystal Pier from our balcony, and walk to it in just a few minutes on the beach...
