"I can't say enough about the staff at Beach Village. First, the appointed Beach Village checkin is very easy; there is a roundabout where a valet stands waiting for your car. Walk down the stairs and check in. There is an option to walk down a ramp, as well. Also, an elevator. I loved the view from the room, as I could see the ocean, albeit over the hot tub. My only two complaints were 1) the loud teenagers in the hot tub with partial view obstruction and 2) I was heading north to elope, but there was nothing special done for the occasion (I don't think many hotels do that anymore). Even if they had, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy it because on the way I had an accident involving my hand that had me in the ER a day later. I wish they had room service because I wasn't able to leave the room, but managed at checkout. That said, there is a wonderful medic on site and the beach is pristine. The room interior is wonderful and very tastefully decorated - one of my favorites anywhere. The bathtub was one of the best of any hotel room. I was in California to elope and this was the second - also, my favorite - stay. And I want to reiterate how amazing the desk staff was at Beach Village. They deserve to be treated very, very well by management and I hope they are cherished."
"Stayed here October 2017 and thought The Beach Village was great. Stayed here from Sunday March 6th to present and it was a real disappointment. We booked an Oceanview Villa Suite. The stay, before all the extraordinary daily taxes and fees, was just over $1,500/day. NOT WORTH IT - do not stay here - that’s our advice, there are better properties in Coronado for the money! Bad service and disrepair… and you guessed it… it’s all because of Covid… Fireplace in room, broken - was fixed on our last day there; ice maker to Sub-Z fridge - broken, and never repaired, and no one ever offered us ice…even though the fully functioning kitchen is a part of what you are paying for; the pillows were the lowest quality flat feather pillows I’d ever seen - and no options to replace them with non-feather pillows; didn’t learn that the Windsor Cottage was going to be closed evenings for half our stay, until we arrived - again, you pay for that service… but we didn’t receive it; our room wasn’t ready for check in… and in fact at least 5 other parties waited into the cold dark evening as we did, without our very expensive suite being ready… they were an incompetent disorganized mess! And it was all the fault of “Covid” - even though, through obvious reservations, they knew parties had pre-paid, like us, and were arriving… nope, they forgot to prepare the rooms for our arrival. The Director, who wouldn’t even share her name, was an incompetent, insensitive and rude female assisted by 3 incompetent staff… and they just couldn’t figure it out. Several parties were complaining as we were, we kept being told…one more hour…just wait one more hr…. We started asking, what are you prepared to do for us due to your incompetence… we’ll get you dinner here… that’s all they offered. Overall The Beach Village looked old and in disrepair. The card keys repeatedly didn’t work - this was throughout The Del - people were trapped in the parking garage - finally they had to station an employee to stay there to key people exit because the card keys weren’t working. Complimentary parking is advertised on the website when you spend the money for a suite, however we were told “Yeah, we don’t do that any more,” so we had to pay for daily parking. We went to The Windsor Cottage for dinner Sunday night and that was a fiasco"

"My fiancé and I stayed at the Pendry this past weekend, and I cannot say enough nice things about this property. It’s obviously gorgeous and in such a fun, lively location, but the service was the true standout. Everyone from the front desk to the bellmen to the bartenders was so courteous, personable, and engaging. I highly recommend getting a drink or two at Fifth and Rose. Incredibly talented bartenders and delicious cocktails. We only spent a few days at the Pendry, but even in that short time it was apparent how special this property is."
"Checked-in on 5/6 for a weekend downtown and the Pendry did not disappoint! The rooms are up to date, staff is attentive with a warm welcome at first impression, and the restaurants on property provide great f&b options. Ended up staying an extra night and had dinner at Lionfish which was delicious, the staff was awesome (thanks Don and team). We attended a Padre game on our last day and went to Nason's Beer Hall prior to the game. The bartender Mason was great. Looking forward to our next adventure downtown that will certainly include Pendry!"
"The hotel is located in the city center. In the gas lamp block, there are many red men and women every day. There are very few Chinese people. Many foreigners should come to vacation. After paying for Ctrip, they will have to pay the resort fee after check-in, which is about 40 dollars a night. But the other us grant, which is relatively resident, has a price/performance ratio and will not stay in this hotel. As a hotel, professionalism is a little lacking. The facilities are just like American hotels. Basically, all of them need to be equipped and there is no hot water bottle."

"Location, balcony overlooking the Pacific, slept with the roar of the ocean, control how much you want to hear it with your sliding patio door. Pool very relaxing. Woodys on the boardwalk for lunch or breakfast, El Prez, Flamingo Deck, World Famous, Truckstop, all close with great food and drink. Perfect locale for Pacific Beach walking, Very Clean rooms, attentive personnel texting or calling to see if my stay was perfect. Front desk clerk awesome. This is my 3rd stay at the Surfer, and will do it again when I can."
"I have to say I didn’t realize Pacific Beach was so popular but staying at the Surf Beach Hotel was absolutely wonderful! It’s nostalgic if you want to look at it that way or you could say it’s kind of a dive, a cool dive! It was fun, we had a fab time. Room was clean, bed was comfy. Call front desk if you needed anything & they would bring it almost immediately. Quite a wonderful week. Beautiful morning & sunset views. The front desk & all employees were more than pleasant & accommodating! We’ll be back 🏖🐬🌞🌺"
"Surfer beach hotel is the place to stay. The scenery was amazing. The beach is beautiful. The staff was very informative, nice. They took care of our every need. Sufer Beach Hotel is the best hotel in the whole wide world. ."

"This hotel is really recommended. I go to San Diego many times because I live in Los Angeles. I have basically stayed in various hotels. I have also stayed in many Airbnb by the sea. The quality of Airbnb in the United States is generally uneven and unclean. I still like to stay in a hotel. The location of this hotel is near Mission Bay and not around the main attractions, but San Diego itself is small and safe, so it doesn't matter. The hotel facilities are very good. The suites I live in have simple kitchens. It is very convenient to travel with children. The room is large and the view is very good. It is very suitable for traveling with children"
"We keep coming back to Pacific Terrace Hotel! The location is hard to beat with the pool overlooking the ocean. The staff is friendly and the customer service delightful. Our room is always clean. We like staying on the first floor which has easy access to the pool area. Use the bikes and ride around town for a relaxing activity and they are included in your stay. Many properties I have returned to after the lockdowns have not fully restored their staff and there are some service gaps but not here. It was as if we were visiting in 2019. We will always return to this hotel."
"The view couldn't get any better! Right next to the Beach, close to shopping & restaurants in walking distance. Will be going back again! Beautiful vacation spot! Nights were so relaxing with the sliding door opened listening to the waves or relaxing on the private balcony. "

"Kids loved the pool, which is heated to 80 degrees, and the Jacuzzi. Great view of the ocean as we relaxed for a few days. There were many families here during our spring break trip but it never felt full. Breakfast was great. We are platinum members and the breakfast buffet for 4 was complimentary. Enough variety to cater to everyone including a omelette station, baked goods, 4 hot items, oatmeal and a few cold items such as bagels w/ lox or cold oatmeal. There were two Tesla EV chargers and 1 standard EV charger that was often available during our stay. Staff had great service throughout the visit!"
"We stayed for two nights in a ground floor room with a lovely view of Coronado Bridge. Check-in was not until 4:00PM, but the room was not ready until a half hour later. The room itself was quite spacious, and we enjoyed our stay and the patio view. However, there were some negatives. First, the room’s rug had clearly not been thoroughly vacuumed in some time. It wasn’t dirty or stained but my stopped up nose and itchy eyes told me it needed either a rug shampoo or some serious vacuuming with a quality vacuum. Secondly, there were no towel racks in the bathroom. A top quality hotel bathroom where you have to put your damp towels on the floor or side of the tub was surprising."

"We booked a partial ocean view and could not have been more pleased with our room. We were close to the pool and worried a little about the noise level at night but the staff promptly at 10pm turned off the fire pit and kindle starting letting people know it was quiet time. So the night was quiet, the room clean and the bed super cozy! We rented bikes for $5.00 an hour and the manager himself went out and helped us! Everyone was nice and helpful and acted like they were glad we were there. We will definitely be coming back!"
"I was able to spend a couple days at this hotel and was very happy. Located right on mission beach and I mean right on the beach! You could throw a rock from your room and almost hit the ocean. Rooms were clean and quiet and If you like the sound of the ocean this is the place. I left the door to the balcony open all night and slept to the sound of the crashing waves. Lots of shops and good restaurants nearby, and a medium (1/2 mile) walk to Belmont Park, a small amusement park."
"Great location for a hotel. We came for the beach and the view it did not disappoint. We could see Dolphins and Whales off the balcony and we’re steps to the beach and boardwalk My only complaint would be the smoking off the balconies for a non smoking hotel."

"The room is too small, 15 square meters? If you put 2 boxes, there will be no place to stand, no elevator, and the baggage needs to pick it up. Location is OK, five minutes walk from the beach, there are Mexican restaurants inside and outside the breakfast. It is not recommended to stay in a family. It is too small to catch up with Hong Kong and Japanese hotels."

"We have stayed at the US Grant a couple of times before and been delighted, and we recommended a night here with a friend on the basis of previous visits. The first thing to say is that the immediate neighbourhood is very unpleasant and has deteriorated significantly. Our suite overlooked a seemingly derelict property covered in graffiti. There are literally dozens of homeless people and drug users all around, including some walking through the valet reception area. It was far from pleasant walking to a local restaurant at night. We arrived just after 4pm to be told that the two Legacy suites we had booked were not ready but would be just a few minutes. 4pm is the check in time. We eventually got to our room at 5pm, but with no luggage. We had to go to reception twice to chase up the luggage. We'd had a very early start that morning and needed a rest and a shower, and this was not a good start to our stay. The excuses were that the hotel was usually at "full occupancy", but that is no excuse, nor is "we are very busy today" and that "we are short-staffed", excuses offered by different members of staff. The Legacy suite was far smaller that we expected or is shown on the hotel's own website, with barely enough room to walk around the bed on one side. The bathroom was small and dated, and as many previous guests have commented you have to lean into the shower to turn the water on, causing you to get drenched with cold water before it runs hot. The seating area was fine but nothing special. One real positive was the comfort of the beds; they were excellent. When we went to breakfast we were given a brunch menu, and didn't really think too much about it until we ate lunch there and were presented with the same menu. Outside the Grill there were clearly separate breakfast and lunch menus, and even the lady on reception had no idea what was going on. At lunchtime one of us ordered a seranno ham and cheese sandwich with fries, and a breafast sandwich of an omelete with potatoes arrived. Then a bowl of fries arrived on their own, then a replacement sandwich which was the same omelette concontion again. Finally, when two of us had finished our meals the correct sandwich arrived. This was not acceptable. Furthermore while we were eating the staff were mopping the floor and generally cleaning up - not very professional. On the plus side all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and we did receive a deduction to the room cost plus a credit towards food or drinks. This was much appreciated but our experience meant that we will not be staying again, not can we recommend it to anyone else. It most certainly is not a luxury hotel. The room costs are high and then putting a cost of over $18 for internet access is outrageous, particularly when you can get public access in the lobby areas. In rating the service I have given an average rating. The service by the staff was overall very good, but the service quality of the hotel w"
"My jaw dropped upon entering the gorgeous main floor of the US Grant. We arrived early and hoped to just check our bags before exploring the city. The very helpful person at the front desk found our (upgraded!) room was ready early, which was awesome, and allowed us to freshen up a bit. Every person working at the hotel that we interacted with was very friendly. The city is very walkable and super close to all the great bars and restaurants in the gaslamp district. If you're feeling adventurous, there is a hub for motorized scooters to get you around quicker right at one of the entrances. The room was spotless and beautifully appointed. Bring earplugs if you are bothered by city street noises. If I'm ever in the area again I would not hesitate to stay at the hotel once more and I would recommend it to all!"
"Tough one. The hotel is lovely and the service is from another time - every single staff member was exceptionally helpful and kind. Lee Ann at concierge and Alex at front desk come to mind but I mean it - the bar, restaurant, valet, everyone was just lovely. The hotel public areas are also gorgeous and the restaurant and bar very good. Amuse bouche at breakfast? Ok. However, two strikes: one, you’re in San Diego but there is no place to sit outside. Also, it’s true, the homeless population is huge and sad; although I never saw any street people in the lobby as other reviewers mentioned and frankly that seems far-fetched. Also, I felt safe as a single woman walking in the neighborhood but I wasn’t out late at night. Our room was upgraded to 10th floor and the bed was amazingly comfortable (Frette linens) and no issues with size, noise or bathroom. So overall - very comfy room, fantastic hospitality and f&b, transitional area and no outdoors. You decide."
