Surfer Beach Hotel - A Waterfront Hotel in San Diego

What Do the Rooms Include?

These modernly decorated and furnished rooms are spacious considering the prime real estate they occupy. Junior Suites are available for travelers who need more space or for small groups of people. If you're looking to splurge, book the Sunset Suite: It comes with a full dining room table for eight. Refrigerators are available in all rooms. The ocean-view rooms are the best choice if you're looking for an especially calming experience.

What Amenities Does the Surfer Beach Hotel Offer?

This San Diego hotel is a great choice for travelers looking for all the amenities of home and more. The hotel has a heated outdoor pool, so you’ll be able to go swimming year round. An attached restaurant is available for those days when you just want to stay close to your room. There’s also direct access to the beach and boardwalk, which means you’ll feel like you’re staying in a high-class hotel without footing the bill.

What are the Rates Like?

Depending on what time of year you visit, you can find some decently priced rooms here at the Surfer Beach Hotel. The off-season rates range between $140 and $200 per night, with the double room with double beds setting you back the most. Peak season rates are between $350 and $425.

What’s There to Do Nearby?

The hotel is surrounded by all you’ll ever need while in San Diego. Beach lovers can head to Mission Beach, less than a mile and a half away. Animal lovers can choose between a short drive to SeaWorld or the San Diego Zoo. If you need a good place to go for a run, Mission Bay Park and Belmont Park are fairly close as well. Foodies can head into downtown for the best food in town.

What’s the Bottom Line?

The reviews of Surfer Beach Hotel are extremely positive, especially for a hotel that is so affordable in the off seasons. Past guests have been very happy with management and have come back to visit again because of the great service. If that isn’t a sign of a good hotel, we don’t know what is.
