Just ten minutes from downtown San Diego and located on one of the city's pristine Pacific coast beaches, The Surfer Beach Hotel is your ideal vacation spot. San Diego, California is world renowned for its beach culture, and our Pacific Beach Hotel is no exception. Just steps from your guestroom, you'll find one of San Diego's most popular recreation areas. Cycle along the waterfront, take a surfing lesson, or just lay back and catch some rays on the beach.
The Surfer Beach Hotel is centrally located to dozens of our attractions within a short drive from the hotel, including SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo, the Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park and Historic Old Town. Also within a short distance is Petco Park, home of the Padres and Qualcomm Stadium, home of the Chargers.
Many guests don't even need a car when they stay at the Surfer. We are located steps away from a city bus stop on a line that services Sea World, the Trolley, the airport and parts further afield.
In addition, we recommend that guests use ride-sharing services like Uber or Lyft, as these are ubiquitious in San Diego and less expensives than taxis. If new to these services, please inquire with a staff member for an explanation and discounts.
Renting a car is always an option, and Avis Rent-A-Car is a partner with the Surfer Beach Hotel. Enter discount code X718628 when booking your rental.
The Surfer has it's own parking lot exclusive to our guests. The parking fee is $17/night and is not included in the room rate. Guests who book directly through the hotel website or over the phone are given $10 off their first night of parking. There is a municipal lot in front of the hotel as well as neighborhood parking within a few minutes walk of the hotel, but the availability of this parking is diminished, especially in the middle of the day.
