Great location right on the beach!! Hotel provides many things you need for the beach (towels, chairs, boogie boards) which is an added bonus!! I would definitely stay here again

Perfect location, great atmosphere, used the complimentary beach chars, bikes, very helpful staff, and housekeeping took great care of us. Pics are of room 303, king size bed with a roll-away for our daughter.

Spent a week on vacation with my girlfriend Staff was super friendly, the location was great and the property was very comfortable Perfect view of the beach from our room Would definitely stay again

This is definitely one of the best hotels I've ever been to! It has a really slick vibe, without feeling pretentious, it has an incredible location, and if you get one of the surf pads you'll be treated to one of the best views of the ocean ever! The staff is super nice and helpful, the rooms are very clean and hip and spacious, the food at the restaurant was really good – my only thing that I would want upgraded would be the quality of the Keurig coffee in the rooms- if you like strong coffee I would recommend bringing your own, but that is it otherwise the hotel is somewhere I definitely want to come stay again!

Great location for surfing or swimming, right on the beach ,very convenient, you can walk everywhere, no need to drive, very noisy area in general , a party environment, great for singles or couples with no kids, tiny fridge stocked up with booze,(expensive) no room for anything else:) no microwave , if you like your privacy you'll have an issue going to the really nice bathroom with the see thru,frosted glass , sliding , loud door.,I'd stay there again only with my wife or mistress:)) 8pm night life starts:) not worth the expensive tag:)

Close to the beach, food and shopping. Hotel is very clean, staff are accommodating and friendly. Hotel gives off contemporary yet relaxing vibe. Really appreciated that since this was a family trip. A win win for everyone.

Cant wait to go back. Next San Diego Trip we will be 100 be staying at this hotel!

Staff was excellent! Very helpful with dining suggestions and directions. Room 319 has an awesome view of the ocean and the tower deck below. Would highly recommend for cleanliness, friendliness and a great overall first time in Cali experience. Would definately return!

It was awesome stay . The location is great ! The ocean made it all happen for us. This hotel had complimentary bikes who he's we enjoyed very much. So coming back !

The hotel is right on the beach, the view was unbelievable. The staff was helpful and pleasant, the only thing I would fix was the noisy bed, while it was comfortable it was very noisy when getting in and out of them.

Overall hotel was great. Beautiful view... especially loved the 2nd floor terrace for hotel guests. The hotel has a nice restaurant (expensive but delicious).. and also located to some good fast food spots and bars. One negative... we were basically kicked out of our room right at checkout (like right on the minute). The guy was literally knocking at our door and waiting for us to pack up our stuff and leave. Other than that.. great experience.

The staff provided excellent service. The room was nice. The restaurant is pricey but the food is good. Thellocation is great. There is plenty to do on the boardwalk and the tourist attractions are all 20 mins away. Overall a great place to stay.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Tower 23. The king size bed in our Sky Pad room was the most comfortable I've ever slept on. You can't help but relax when you melt into the multiple fluffy pillows that adorn the bed. We loved the deep bathtub because we are both tall and were able to keep our legs extended and still have the bath water up to our chest. The staff was friendly and helpful. Complimentary cocktails were sent to our room upon arrival and when we asked for a couple forks they arrived within moments. If you ask at the front desk there are beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas available to check out at no cost. The valet parking is $20 a night with in/out privileges. There is some free parking nearby, but I never saw it empty. There is also free wi-fi in the hotel. After turn-down service every night housekeeping leaves a couple of delicious chocolates on your pillow. I thought that was a nice touch. The location was wonderful for us. Tower23 is right on the beach so you can either walk in the sand or along the boardwalk and browse the local shops. There are also several wonderful restaurants within just a couple minutes walk of the hotel. It's also only a 15 minute drive from La Jolla where I highly recommend the sea cave kayaking trip. The only downside to Tower23 (and it really isn't that big a deal) is that there is no pool. I realize the beach is right there, but I'm a wuss and hate the cold, so a warmer pool or a jacuzzi would have been nice. There also is no workout room if that's something that's important to you. But I was perfectly happy to jog on the beach.

Great location, close to restaurants and bars and great service by hotel staff!

This place was outstanding, great view of ocean, boardwalk, and the staff was great. I will def be staying here everytime I come to Pacific Beach...

Very attentive staff and fabulous location RIGHT on Pacific Beach just north of the Crystal Pier. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. I rented a bike from Pure Life ($10/day for three days) and rode around Mission Bay and up to La Jolla. Great bike paths!

Good quality, small, boutique hotel with a minimalist design and friendly staff. The restaurant and terrace are great and the location is good for going out in Pacific Beach and the ocean is thirty seconds away. The rooms were too expensive however.

The experience at this hotel was terrific. It had incredible rooms, an updated, chic, modern look, and a superb outdoor deck that looked right out onto the ocean front. Our hotel suite said it had a "partial ocean view" but this view was more astonishing then anything that I have seen in a while. Just staying in that atmosphere was comforting and it made you feel right at home. While there we didn't have a car, so our trips anywhere became very expensive, but with having to pay for valet parking and not knowing the area, we were trying to figure out if the renting a car was a better price, or the taxis. Still not sure. There was a ton to do right around the area and we were always able to walk anywhere we needed to be. The friendly staff was always willing to help and it didn't hurt that everyone working there is extremely good looking. Who doesn't want a great looking person helping them out? Haha. They were always willing to call us a cab, gave us advice on the best way to get somewhere, or even just make recommendations on things to do. It was a true joy to meet these people. It was a superb trip in an exceptional environment. I completely give this establishment 5 stars. Thanks for everything Tower 23!

Dear ocean lover, We are very appreciative of your very nice review and we're glad we could deliver the level of service that you deserve. Can't really beat view from the Surf Pad. We will take another look at the coffee options for the Keurig as well in order to include some stronger choices. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon.
