This simple hotel on the bustling Pacific Beach boardwalk packs a solid value for travelers who prioritize beach access over a long list of fancy amenities. Large contemporary rooms sport iPod docks, flat-screen televisions, and free Wi-Fi, while the suites offer kitchenettes. Each unit has a balcony or patio, and most provide ocean views. A heated pool and hot tub is enclosed by a clear wall providing wind protection as well as a front row view of the boardwalk and beach. A free continental breakfast is available each morning in the lobby, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance, including the happening Firehouse American Eatery & Lounge right next door.
