We have been going to the Beach Cottages for about 30 years. We have stayed in the main building, the hotel wing and the cottages. All are excellent. There are many things we love about the Beach Cottages but the main ones are....the absolute consistency of cleanliness and keeping the property up to date, the quality of the employees, and...

I loved The Beach Cottages. The pictures show just how it is. The room was nice, clean and the bed was comfortable. It was mostly quiet and just right at the beach. When we went it wasn't a busy time so that made it even nicer. The staff were very nice. I have no complaints and plan to go back...

We have visited twice the Beach Cottages now and we loved it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach is few feet away from your room and we love the fact that we didn't have to drive a single day during our stay and enjoy the beach. The rooms are very comfortable with free internet. Also each room...

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...

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...

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.
