Not very good first impression but told the desk once check in and they upgraded up for free. Rooms need updating bit great position and very Central to everything in San diego and from then on...

Every summer we look forward to our stay at the Beach Cottages. Our four kids have grown up going to this great motel and cottages right on the beach. The cottages are cute and come with kitchens as well as BBQ facilities right near your door (There are several) Each unit has an outside umbrella table where we usually eat... More

This place is unique for sure. We got a 1 bedroom cottage right in front with the ocean view which was awesome! My only reason for 3 stars is that the cottages only have full size beds. I failed to notice that when I booked it. My husband is 6 feet and I am 5'4 so I had no idea... More

Yes this place is old and dated but you can't beat the location and price. We had a wonderful time in one of the cottages. Great location... Wish they had a pool though. They have shuffle board and ping pong for family fun and near multiple bars for adult fun. Near many restaurants but the property also has grills and... More

Me and my family used to stay at another hotel but this place is WAY more pleasing. First of all, we are directly on the beach, which means that we don't need to go through the trouble of driving there like we used to. In addition, we get to cook our own food instead of having to wait at restaurants.... More

My review is strictly limited to the studios, where my family stayed for 3 nights. The rooms are spacious and clean, and mostly comfortable, save for the hard mattresses. The rooms look out toward the ocean, although the first two floors are blocked by apartments and a restaurant. My review is low based primarily on the night noise and smell... More

The Beach Cottages are right on the beach and within walking distance to everything you need! The staff is very nice and helpful! We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor. It had a full kitchen and a dining table. I can't wait to return to the Beach Cottages!

I would recommended staying here. The Beach Cottages are right on the beach and is very close to restaurants and little shops. We stayed upstairs on the east side and the room didn't have any air conditioning. The service was really good. I wouldn't really change anything about the rooms, overall it was a really good place to stay but... More

With the beach and boardwalk on one side and shops and restaurants of Mission Boulevard on the other, it's hard to beat the location of the Beach Cottages. Plus, there is lots of free parking for guests. We spent part of our stay in a 1-bedroom apartment on the second floor before moving into a 1-bedroom cottage. Both units were... More

We have stayed here many times, and lucked out getting a last minute reservation for a 1 bedroom cottage. There were 4 of us and it was plenty of room for all of us. We like the cottage as it has a full sized kitchen and a patio with a grill. Only the front cottages have an ocean view, but... More
