more perfect, intimate way to experience San Diego. Being over the ocean, you wouldn't expect modern conveniences, but they offer WiFi, cable, and clean and well maintained little cottage. It is a one-of-a-kind experience to wake up to the waves crashing. The pier grounds itself in the Pacific Beach boardwalk, which is one of the busier, younger, and more blusterous of San Diego's beaches. There is plenty to do nearby, from grabbing a pint overlooking the water in the Shore Club, to shopping in the boutiques lining Mission and Grand Ave.

Whenever I visit San Diego, I usually end up at Pacific Beach area and always see this Crystal Pier Hotel and can never stay because it has a long waiting list especially in summer. These are like little motel rooms built on the pier, and would be quite an experience to stay 1 or 2 nights. It is still on my list of places to stay.

I heard a lot of good things about this hotel and cottages here in pacific beach San Diego. I believe that to stay here is awesome because of the view of the Pacific Ocean and you have a personal deck too, to see surfers in the morning and especially the sunrise & sunset will be beautiful.

This place is right in the middle of the action at Pacific Beach, and it's unique -- you won't find another hotel like it, where you can stay right on the pier overhanging the ocean in historic cottages with flower pots or more bland motel rooms. Reservations usually open 11 months in advance of the month you'd like to stay around 8AM, and book up in 20 minutes or less online or by phone, but sometimes you can snag last-minute cancellations.

These cottages are SUPER CLEAN and SUPER CUTE!! They are beautifully decorated. I've stayed her twice now and am in love. The cottages are on the pier over the ocean. You can fish on the pier or just relax. The service (especially, Jim, Meggan, Randy and Mike) were so helpful and gave us great recommendations on local spots to eat and visit. They each have their own deck where you can lay out, enjoy the sun and see the beach. The kids want to go back again and we will definitely be back.

walk or bike north on the boardwalk to the Pier. Walk out to the end and watch the surfers and the fishermen. You get a great view of the surfers from above. Cute shops in that area, too.

Walk to the end of this pier and smell that fresh sea air! You can also hang a fishing line and catch your dinner perhaps!

Sweeping views up and down the coast from this ideal vantage point.
