Great beach location

Great location. Just north of Chrystal pier and steps form the boardwalk biking/walking trail. Can't get much close to the beach than that. It was pretty quiet at night too. Probably best to avoid times when highschool graduates might be having their senior trip. Bed was comfortable and kitchen was nice, though we didn't end up using it. Roller bed was horrible--saggy and springy.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You can rent beach cruisers at Rays for 10.00. So worth it.

Location, location, location.

The Diamond Head Inn is situated right on the beach with great restaurants, bars, and shops just around the corner. The rooms are spacious and come with a full kitchen (with dishes and cooking implements). It's remarkably affordable for its location however, this hotel is probably best for students and spring breakers looking for a good time. I stayed on a Friday night and was woken up at 4am by partiers who came back to their room and started blasting music. I had expected as much given the price and location. However, Saturday night was quiet and peaceful. Staff were very friendly. Parking can be an issue but, spots are also available at a related hotel 2 blocks away.

Awesome location

We stayed here for NYE and we wished we had booked it for more than one night. The location was awesome. Literally, the hotel was steps away from the ocean. We left the window open at night and could hear the waves crashing. We definitely plan on coming back again.

Not what is advertised.

The pictures are out dated and the rooms are a lot smaller than what the hotel portrays them to be on their website. In my room: the bathroom light did not work, the toilet leaked water, the "full kitchen" was not accesible and the room was too small you could not walk around comfortably. Was also charged $50 for unknown reasons, fraud perhaps? I would not reccommend staying here!

Look elsewhere

The cable TV didn't work, the remote was dead, the keyless entry system needed to be replaced (and they knew it#, the hallway lighting system was on all night which lit up the room #due to a glass door), and the office opened late each day. The property is not bad but the staff really didn't seem to care. Therefore, look elsewhere for a hotel. It was cheap and doesn't have much else going for it.

Ideal location in Pacific Beach

This was our third time staying at the Diamond Head Inn and we will definitely return. The location is perfect! You are literally steps away from the boardwalk and some amazing restuarants. Randy at the front desk is awesome and very accomodating. I would highly recommend this hotel for the location and value.

Simple, great location

The hotel was the right location at the right price. We didn't spend much time in our room but it was clean and pretty comfy. If you want to be able to walk/ride around Pacific beach its a perfect location and affordable.
