The Beach Cottages
Ranked #149 of 278 Hotels in San Diego
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2011

We were not happy with the hotel that we booked so we drove over to Pacific Beach, CA to look for a beachside hotel. This was Thanksgiving week so I wasn't sure we would be able to find something. Beach Cottages was able to give us a great room with a ocean view for a good price. Comfy beds. We stayed in the room for 3 days then switched to a beach side cottage.(also a great price) We loved being able to step out of our room and have our feet in the sand. The nights were chilly by the beach, so the heater was welcome. Next time we will eat out less and make use of the large cottage kitchen. The staff was really helpful. They have books, puzzles and games in the lobby to use. Very relaxed and funky area. I loved having a Bloody Mary beachside next door at the Green Flash. Looking forward to next year.

Room Tip: Great view from room 348. Or book a beachside cottate.

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I first found this place when I stayed there while at a work conference in San Diego...and have been going back there ever since. One of the hardest things about the beaches in San Diego is parking....here you obviously get free parking because you are staying there. There are some great places to eat and shop along the boardwalk as well. The other great thing about this place is that they have differen levels of rooms. You can stay in the cottages right on the boardwalk or right behind it there are hotel/motel rooms depending on where you want to stay....no matter what, they were all clean and well managed. And no matter what type of room you stay in...you are close to the beach!!!!

We have been back 5 years in a row as our annual friend trip. We love the location as it is right on the beach and it's nice to walk back and forth to the room. The two bedroom sleeps 7 comfortably. A new bar opened adjacent to the hotel and wow talk about NOISY!
It's definately excellent 20 something hangout. Buses, limousines pulled up often and a lot of drunk people walking the alley behind the hotel, yelling and peeing on the street. Yes we saw one guy in all his glory and I was glad my kids weren't around peeing on a curb. Again we love the location but we are thinking of changing next year because of the difference from a calm atmosphere to a LOUD party atmosphere.

My wife & I were thoroughly happy with our Beach Cottages experience during the week including Christmas 2010. Booked an oceanfront cabin (5 months prior). The view from our windows? Well, I would have to say it ranks in the top five - ever. Gorgeous Pacific Ocean sunsets. Magnificent swells curling through the Crystal Pier to the North. Early morning walks on the beautiful beach. Breakfast at "Konos" (outstanding value + fun spot). No stuffy "upscale" hotel atmospherics. Jus' friendly folks. I can understand why the rates more than double in the Summer. Even though the December chill prevented swimming (water and air both around 55), the gentle sounds of ocean waves was a definite plus to we desert dwellers. Highly recommend for people and families who appreciate simple, clean accomodations in a nearly perfect setting.

Room Tip: Book early - six months if possible.
