Trigild was brought in to manage a boutique hotel in the heart of Pacific Beach, close to dozens of San Diego’s most popular tourist attractions including SeaWorld, Petco Park, the Gaslamp Quarter, Old Town and the San Diego Zoo. The Surfer Beach Hotel is one of only a handful of true beach hotels in the San Diego region.

  • Maintenance issues as a result of the properties beach front location
  • Increased wear and tear from the wind, water and sand
  • Deferred maintenance that resulted in a poor guest experience and safety concerns
  • Low occupancy and room rates contributed to the poor financial performance
