Hotel on the Beach

First time at this hotel. Wonderful access to boardwalk and private entry to hotel. Room with balcony and terrific view of ocean. Could hear the waves at night. First room, smelled musty by the elevators and quite loud. When I went back to the front desk, they changed my room. Second room...could not have been happier. Online booking said had view when checked site on reserving. Hotel said all online rooms are NO view. Someone needs to fix that.

GREAT for a fiftyish woman traveling alone!

I booked this hotel on line. All I wanted was a hotel on the beach.... but I got so much more... location location location... the bus line was close and EASY... access to Old Town, Balboa Park, La Jolla. Walking distance to a variety of restaurants, a grocery store, shopping, shell gathering and even a bead shop to make your own jewelry. So much to do and not enough time. I would definately stay there again!

Ralph's Grocery has a great variety of wine, prepared foods, and fresh fruit. The Surfer Beach Hotel has ample refigerators in the rooms.... Stock up on locally grown strawberries!!!

I had a great stay

This hotel is right on the beach. Excellent location. Do not expect a 5 star hotel and you will be fine. Room was very comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Close to beach, shops, restaurants, and other site seeing areas. Parking is tight, but worth the money to have a safe spot every night.
