We've been coming to the Beach Cottages for quite a few years now and always look forward to returning. It's a great way to experience the chill, relaxing California beach vibe at a fair price. The kitchen facilities in many of the rooms and cottages give the option to save on meals and create a more homey feeling. The common...

The cottages are wonderful and well equipped and just steps to the beach. They have everything one would need for a nice time. A great ocean view (we had a middle cottage and there still was a straight view to the beach and strand), clean kitchen and a cute property with all the amenities including barbecues and shuffleboard. The only...

The cottages are wonderful as you can open the window and hear the ocean! You can sit outside your cottage and BBQ dinner and eat at your private patio table while sipping your glass of wine. You can walk to the grocery store across the street. Dine at the restaurants next door or down the boardwalk, play pingpong or just...

The room I stayed in had a king size bed and a sitting area with a love seat coffee table and a desk. Each room has a...

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...

The Beach Cottages are located right on the beach in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego. We are conveniently located near many great restaurants, shops, night life, and San Diego attractions. There is a Ralph's grocery store located right across the street which makes it very easy to prepare your own meals in any one of our fifty fully equipped kitchen units, if you prefer to do so. Our other twenty eight units have kitchenettes that include a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and all the tableware and glassware you need.
