Fabulous 8.8 From 424 reviews

Very good 8.0
Pacific Beach Vibe
Our first trip to the San Diego, Pacific Beach area. Amazing! The weather was perfect for mid February. The landscape and wildlife are absolutely incredible. The motel is just steps from the beach! Great location. The motel itself could use some updating. Rooms are nicely furnished however very outdated. The staff is very friendly and courteous. With that said, I would definitely recommend for those who care more about being on the beach rather than modern furnishings.

Good affordable vacation!
I am recovering from foot surgery. Being so close to the beach made our vacation possible. The room was very nice, the kitchen well set up for basic cooking. We had a great time! Thank you

Good 6.0
Staff was nice, but the room was really worn. Location near the beach and nearby bars make it noisy overall.
