We really enjoyed our stay in San Diego at the surfer beach hotel we will stay again thank you so much

Good 6.0
Very Average
The staff was very friendly, the lounge chairs were great and the King bed was comfy. But really it’s just such an old hotel and everything else is average especially for the price we paid. They told us we had to upgrade to get an ocean view but that didn’t turn out to be true. So felt a little upsold there for no reason. I did confront them about that and asked to be moved back to original room but it was already taken. I’d recommend a Vrbo rather than this place. The price is high for what you get.

Poor 2.0
Never again
The only good thing about this hotel are the employees. Everything else is just terrible. During my two night stay the elevator broke down 4 times. Also they had hidden fees and 25$ a night parking fee that i wasn't aware off. The room is very outdated.

Beautiful View
We booked this room for our valentines vacations. We absolutely loved the view. The hotel is literally steps away from the beach and has a perfect location. Hotel staff was great and check in was fast. The room was not bad it needs some paint and alittle more attention to detail like the bathrooms but otherwise the bed was super comfy. The only issue we had was while sleeping around 5am we heard our neighbors coughing and it literally sounded like they were I. Our room the walls are not thick at all!! The next night we heard a dog barking for hours and people screaming outside.

Great location
Amazing location right on the beach! We upgraded our room to an ocean front with a balcony - loved it. Walking distance to everything. The beds were very comfy, but the room/hotel is pretty weathered. We would stay there again.
