We stayed here for a weekend trip with some friends. Luckily we got a cottage right at the end next to the beach, the view was so nice. There were a lot of people walking right by our window since it was right on the boardwalk, but it was worth the view, especially at night and in the morning when... More

Stayed 4 nights in the room with a private balcony, 3rd floor with ocean view......wonderful! Nothing fancy about the place; simple, clean with amazing beach location. Best of all, no parking fees and affordable rates. Loved my stay!

When we were invited to a family wedding in Temecula, I insisted on going a few days early, and driving the extra hour to San Diego, to our beloved Pacific Beach (PB) and stay at the Beach Cottages for a couple of days to celebrate my birthday. We have... More

We had a top floor unit with sweeping ocean views and lovely sea breeze. A great kitchen with everything you need for all meals, guest laundry and Ralph's Supermarket across the road. Close proximity to Balboa Park, SeaWorld, Coronado and La Jolla as well as Las Americas fashion outlets. Beds were comfy, rooms clean and staff very welcoming, looking forward... More

Came back last summer with family just to "chill" for a week but I've only gotten around to reviewing it now. No changes from our last visit, it's still wonderful and I love the cottages and the beach. Always a pleasure to visit.

The location is perfect. We were attending a wedding at the Catamara, a couple blocks from there so it was perfect, plus it is right by the ocean. The hotel is quite old and it could totally use a remodel and upgrade. The carpets are super old and the rooms are not very clean (mostly the carpets) The staff is... More
