My husband and I have been coming to the Beach Cottages since we were dating...16 years. My best friend has always come with us, back then we partied and it was a great location to walk to the bars! Since we have families now we don't do much of that but it's still the perfect place to vacation! We have...

This is the 3rd year in a row my family has stayed at the Beach Cottages over Memorial weekend and this isn't a tradition we'll ever be ending. We can pick rooms in a way that accomadates many of us. We've stayed in the actual cottages as well as the hotel rooms and are just as happy in either. The...

I spent my last here before taking a flight back to Europe. The hotel was great to get a good night's sleep and as I was lucky and got a room on the 3rd floor, facing the ocean, I was able to enjoy the beautiful sunset and listen to the waves. The view is really unbeatable, but you will have...

Stumbled across this hotel & decided to stay a few nights. Lucky for us they had availability. All the employees here are very friendly & helpful. The hotel is right across from the beach & has spectacular views. We stayed in a "standard" room in the main building. The room was small, but clean & we had a nice deck...

Our family reunion this year involved two boys age 4 and 6, three adults, and two 70-year olds. The location of Beach Cottages, right next to the beach, is unbeatable. We had 3 motel rooms in the west wing (3rd floor) and a two-bed apartment in the main building, and stayed about two weeks. Views of the ocean were great...

We had an amazing 3 night stay in this awesome location in Pacific Beach! First, the hotel room, although older in style, was very clean and fully equipped for our family. We stayed in the 3rd floor of the hotel portion (not the cottages) and I would highly recommend this. We would sit in our room with a full view...

This hotel is in a prime spot at Pacific Beach - right off the boardwalk and in walking distance to many good restaraunts, shopping, and the popular Mission Beach. There is a grocery store across the street which was a bonus for us because we had a room with a kitchen. We stayed on the first floor of the main...

After leaving the over-priced glitz of Las Vegas this was the perfect place for us to stay. It was clean, comfortable, priced well and right on the beach. The staff was helpful and cheerful and we really enjoyed our stay. Sure the rooms aren't updated but we had everything we needed and wanted. We could here the people next door...

Wonderful place ON the beach in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA. The cottages are at beach level but behind a half-wall and glass enclosure. There are 3 gates that give access to the boardwalk and beach right outside the property. Check out the pictures. During the summer, you may want to stay in the 2nd and 3rd floor rooms/suites as...

One and two bedrooms available. Full kitchen with standard size refrig and stove. Ocean and sunset view from the 3rd floor units. Walk right out onto the boardwalk or sand.
