The staff is very helpful and the location is great. The place is successfully busy, so it would behoove them to modernize the accomodations over time. The original cottages appear to be from the 50s while the motel building behind is probably from the 60s
We have been coming to The Beach Cottages for years, and always enjoy this charming facility. The staff is welcoming and accommodating, and the rooms are well-furnished and comfortable. Our 3rd floor room had a balcony with a great view of the beach, and the whole property is well-maintained and impeccably clean.
Absolutely the best location! Perfect for our family getaway! Loved the fire pit, BBQ grill and ping pong tables! Our 2 bedroom condo was spacious, clean and had everything we needed to cook our meals! The staff was very attentive and so friendly! Loved it here and plan on making it a yearly tradition! Thank you Beach Cottages!
I grew up in San Diego and counted Mission Beach and Pacific Beach among the neighborhoods I lived in over the years. When it was time to visit family and friends, we wanted the best of San Diego, which are the beaches of course! The Cottages did not disappoint! Half a block from the beach, clear views of the boardwalk and sand, and tons of places to eat in nearly any direction, the Beach Cottages was the perfect spot for a beach getaway. The Studio we chose was pretty spacious and we were able to enjoy plenty of company both inside, out on the patio, and on the beach. Parking was a huge plus as well… We were able to park right in front of our room in the north building and friends who visited were able to get a parking pass for $10 for the day. PB is not a quiet beach, especially on the weekends. The noise doesn’t really keep you from sleeping or anything, but be prepared to hear drunk college kids and millennials calling out to their friends and saying stuff like, “Jenny! JENNY! Jenny! Did you see that? You totally missed it Jenny! JENNY, come over here and check this out, dude!” The people watching is pretty spectacular also. Slomo and Flash weren’t around skating and rollerblading down the boardwalk this time… maybe they have retired or..? Where ever they are, I hope they know they made PB and Mission Beach a more fun place to be.…
My family of 3 had a wonderful stay at the Beach Cottages. We had an apartment at the 3rd floor which had an amazing view of the beach. Although the hotel is a little bit dated the apartment was clean, comfortable and well kept. There are many bars and restaurants within walking distance. Look forward to returning!!
