"Great staff, excellent location. "
We are frequent visitors to La Jolla and have walked past the hotel many times. This time we decided to stay and all we can say is wow! The front desk clerk Helen was awesome at check in and helped us out with our room issues. The beach staff was great as well. The only negatives were the bed, for this type of resort I would have expected a softer bed. The bed was quite hard. The other negative was the onsite Shores Resturant, food was subpar at best. Not worth what you pay for. We will definitely be back!

"Great hotel right on the beach."
Great hotel right on the beach. Although the room was cramped for two people, it was hard to complain sleeping to ocean waves and breezes, as well as walking out the door to waiting beach chairs. We came for rest and relaxation and left rested and relaxed. What more could you ask for!😀😀

"Vacation in San Diego"
The grounds of this hotel are gorgeous. The fish are entertaining and you could sit for hours by an evening fire with a glass of wine and relax. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The air didn't seem to quite keep up and the pillows were not very comfortable but the beach and boardwalk access more than make up for this. Christian, the bartender at the pool, was friendly and always in a good mood. The only staff member that wasn't very pleasant was the young woman who checked us in. Other than that, the staff was great. The men who greeted you when you came or left were always friendly, smiling and seemed to truly enjoy their jobs. We would definitely stay here again!

"A wonderful place to stay"
My wife and I visited this hotel as a sort of 2nd honeymoon and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is what you might call a "destination" spot...but this also means that it is somewhat isolated from non-affiliated restaurants, etc. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but something to keep in mind if you don't have a relatively high food budget or your own vehicle. We used Uber a LOT, but that wasn't too bad. The location is near MANY San Diego hotspots such as Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Gaslamp district, and La Jolla cove. My favorite (by far!) was La Jolla, which is absolutely breathtaking. The facilities are very nice and well-kept. Is it perfect?'s unrealistic. But, it is a beautiful area and I would highly recommend it. My wife and I plan to visit in the future with our kids -- they stayed home this time around. By the way, not every room has its own beach patio, but everyone staying does have beach's just a short walk. During our next stay, I hope to get one of the rooms that have direct beach access, where you can have a campfire and enjoy the sunset and starry night.

    San Diego Beach Hotel Guide

    Escape to a place where the sun shimmers off saltwater skin, where seagulls gather for afternoon naps on the pier, and where the surf is always just right. Escape to San Diego. Michelle Held once said, “Don’t grow up too quickly, lest you forget how much you love the beach.” Take this advice to heart as your “grown up” troubles drift over the horizon on the warm waves of the Pacific Ocean. Stretching out like a sea lion on the sand, America’s Finest City lines the Southern California coast with beautiful beaches, world-famous attractions, and a craft beer and cuisine scene that brings all the best of the Golden State to the table. Before you float away, book San Diego beachfront hotels and let us answer some of your seaside queries:

    What are the best beaches in San Diego to surf at?

    Many of the beaches in San Diego are known for excellent surfing and swimming conditions. Remember when you were a kid and stood in awe of suntanned surfers paddling with the currents and springing up at the perfect moment? You can be your own wave-charging hero at any of these locally loved surf spots:

    • Ocean Beach: Home to the longest pier on the West Coast, this quirky neighborhood haunt is a hippie haven. At sunrise and sunset, you’re sure to see the surf community take up their places around the pier and riding smooth waves back to shore.
    • Point Loma: A narrow peninsula south of “OB,” Point Loma boasts spectacular cliffs and famous waves. Join seasoned surfers as they take boats out past the bluff and catch a ride back to land on some of the best waves in the state.
    • La Jolla Shores: On the north side of San Diego, La Jolla is a luxury destination with an exquisite surf. This beach is perfect for beginners and those who want to spend a relaxing evening on the water. The area is most known for its adorable seal colony and its fabulous San Diego beach hotels and restaurants. Stay at Inn by The Sea La Jolla and wake up to coffee with seal pups and sunshine.

    Can I go whale watching in San Diego?

    You certainly can go whale watching in San Diego. Join a cruise out of the harbor or charter a smaller boat from Mission Beach to see these sea mammals up close and in their natural habitat. SeaWorld has nothing on the experience of seeing endangered blue whales on their summer migration path from Antarctica to Costa Rica.

    Love to explore the great outdoors? Wind you way through the coastal trails at Torrey Pines State Reserve and keep a weather eye on the sea. Many of the easy-to-intermediate walking paths skirt the cliff-lined coast and wide-open waters where gray whales pass each winter and spring on their way to Baja California.

    Release your inner child on the beaches of San Diego while you toast to adulthood in top brew pubs all over the city. Travelocity offers several San Diego hotels on the beach—from Pacific Terrace Hotel in party-ready Pacific Beach to the quiet tides of La Jolla.
