This place is perfection. I used to come here back in the 90's but haven't been able to get back since I moved so far away. But I finally got back. And it hasn't changed a bit. The location is everything-!!! Staff is super friendly and the property is clean and has everything you need. We rented bikes and were... More

We have been vacationing here for the last 13 years, we love it!! This year my son left $ in a draw and the housekeeping found it and turned it in! The hotel credited my checking acct the money. I'm very grateful and glad to know that there is still honest people out there!

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!

Ah! What can I say?! Our family loves the Beach Cottages. 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 have stayed for 3 different holiday weeks: Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have cooked full turkey dinners in the tiny kitchen in one of the cottages. They have had to come and replace the microwave and electric switches but they were prompt even on a holiday! The cottages and hotel are basic, but it is all about the location on... More
