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.

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

Not so 4 star Diamond Head

The best part of our stay at Diamond Head was the Location. It is perfectly located for easy access to the beach, La Jolla, Rt 5, Mission bay. However, I was not impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel. Rugs and paint were terrible. The parking is horrible, unless you enjoy parking 2 blocks from the hotel. I didnt care for the amount of homeless which were allowed to come in and drink free coffee in the morning. It doesnt appear the owner cares about the property. Should be priced a bit lower. would I go back? Naaah.I'd explore other options first

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Garnet ave offers a great night of happy hour hopping. The 50 cent ribs on Tuesdays at the Fire House are a must do!! Leilannis Cafe on Cass St. was my favorite find. Check it out before the tourists find it.

great price for location

This room had a great location for the price. Less than half a block from the ocean, it was also walking distance from restaurants, convenience store, etc. They gave us a room which was much larger than we had reserved, very courteous and competent staff. My only complaints were no pool and limited parking. They do have a sister property with both those available for Diamond Head Inn guests, but it was several blocks away, too far to be practical for walking with a 2 year old in tow.

Great Hotel along with great location

Our hotel was living in an apartment, seperate bedroom living rm, complete kitchen and bath. blacony off the living room and bedroom. open view of the ocean. Very clean and neat. Sofa bed in living room. Internet extra and little parking. More parking two blocks up the street with sister hotel. This one is worth the walk.

Great location, great price!

We really enjoyed this hotel, How can you complain with a room that is just steps from the beach. We loved having the kitchen so we could cook breakfasts and other meals we didn't want to go out for. There is a CVS pharmacy just down the street, and a Ralphs just a couple blocks farther down. Parking was not an issue for us, even though the lot was small and open to beach-goers we still found spots close by whenever we returned. Nicely furnished, clean rooms. Quiet, calm location perfect runaway for our little family! We would definitely go back and recommend it to others.

Geat Location

Right on the beach. Although we did not have a view from the room you could hear the ocean. There is no air cond. but didn't need it, opened the window. You are about 50' from the boardwalk where you can walk along the beach with lots of others. Restaurants, bars and shopping were just around the corner. I lived in PB in the 70's and it was good to return however nothing looks the same, not a sleepy little beach town anymore-overly commercialized.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Bring sneakers and get ready for a good workout. Power walk the boardwalk, ride a bike or enjoy the beach. Walk to everything, no need for a car.
