Surfer Beach Hotel
Lonely Planet review
Beach bums aren't settling for Bermuda shorts and crusty shacks these days. They head to the Surfer Beach Hotel, at the crest of the beach-hotel wave. Ride the swell on in, and you'll find great views and an interior fit with style.
The rooms, with stone-tiled entry, are minimally modern, with deep green satiny bedspreads and accessory pillows atop. Their shared balconies are perched above the gated pool area, where skin-bronzing on deck chairs still seems to be in. If you'd prefer the toe exfoliation that a good walk in sand brings, head a few feet out the gate and you're bang in the heart of Pacific Beach. Rooms don't tend to get noisy, but the casually hip vibe fits nicely with the party atmos of the area - and the comfort of the rooms are a plus when the inevitable morning-hangover kicks in. No breakfast is included here, but there's an insta-cappuccino machine plus coffee and tea on offer in the lobby.
