Recently stayed here for four days while in San Diego. Chose the hotel due to location and was not disappointed. Right on the beach and many shops and places to eat on the boardwalk and within walking distance. We weren't happy with the first room due to it's location-it was so important to have an oceanside room for me- and...

I love the Surfer. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Front desk especially. We had a room next to the pool, and it was clean and comfortable. This is an older hotel, with character and a funky beach vibe. Will be back

This hotel is at Pacific Beach and near so many attractions and shopping in San Diego. It has a boardwalk at the beachside and restaurants near for any meal. The beach area and hotel surroundings are clean. The hotel is smaller with a staff that is so accommodating and so helpful. Robert checked us in and helped us tremendously and...

This hotel is dated but the room is comfortable and reasonably clean. This is probably not the hotel for 'clean nuts' or those who expect "yes ma'am" service. Folks who have unreasonable expectations for a Marriott stay on the beach at a bargain price should go to one of the $300 to $500 a night places down the beach and...

This is in a great location. Close to restaurants & shopping. Loved that it was right on the beach. We got 2 double beds in our room, so if you like more bed space keep that in mind. Worked for us since we were out on beach most of the time. Will definitely stay there again.
