17 Best San Diego Beach Hotels

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

San Diego is one of the best places in the world for a beach vacation. Good San Diego beach hotels are ones you can quickly run back and forth to from the sand which can significantly enhance a stay no matter how old you are.
The hotels and resorts on this list are chosen because of locations on the sand, great amenities and things to do within walking distance. They provide major convenience—no need to struggle with beach parking for starters. One can spend an entire vacation in one of these spots without hopping into a car.
Note that there are two types of San Diego beaches—bay beaches and ocean beaches. Bayside hotels also provide easy access to the ocean beaches, giving guests the best of both worlds. San Diego beach hotels at any level of luxury will skew higher in price during holidays and beach season. They’re worth it. However, they are excellent value in winter, and we still use the beach (albeit a bit differently) in winter.
These best San Diego beach hotels are listed from south to north. Underneath each listing, I’ll give you a little bit of advice in regard to how to book and information based on feedback I’ve received from readers, guests and my own personal experience. My services are best utilized when it comes to the higher-end hotels as I have access to added-value amenities (such as complimentary breakfast for two, resort credits, and room upgrades) at no extra cost to you. In these cases, I’ve indicated how to send me your details.

Neighborhood: Imperial Beach
Beach: Imperial Beach

Beach Village at The Del (Top Pick)

Neighborhood: Coronado
Beach: Coronado Municipal Beach
Why Go: You want the very best beach vacation possible in San Diego. This is by far the best luxury choice. Beach Village is a private enclave at Hotel Del Coronado with designer cottages and many VIP amenities. Only guests of Beach Village have access to its pools, common areas and breakfast at the Windsor Cottage. It is much quieter than staying on the main resort and popular for groups and multigenerational travel because most cottages have full kitchens.
Beach Amenities:

Access to the members-only Windsor Beach club with food and drink service, posh sofas and sand chairs styled by Room & Board (open during summer only)
Complimentary use of beach chairs and umbrellas at Del Beach (half-moon cabanettes and day beds are available for rental) where it’s also possible to enjoy drink and food service to the sand.
Stand-up paddle board and surf lessons
Early morning yoga on the beach and outdoor beachside spinning classes.
A beachside boardwalk in front of the hotel perfect for riding bikes and surreys (rentals are available)
Private beach bonfires with s’more roasting
Boogie board, surfboard, and skim, board rentals

Resort Amenities (in addition to amenities on the main Hotel Del Coronado resort):

Personal Concierge service
VIP Entrance
Private dinners in your cottage prepared by resort chefs
Priority reservations across the resort
Pools with cabanas and lounge chairs for Beach Village guests only
Secluded plunge pools and hot tubs scattered throughout the property
Cottages with hot tubs
Designer cottages with designer appliances

Good to Know: The cottages closest to the beach border the boardwalk so you will see people on bikes, walking etc.
Reservations: Hotel Del Coronado and Beach Village at The Del are Virtuoso properties which means that I can book you in with some additional benefits that include:

Daily Buffet breakfast, for up to two in-room guests
$100 USD Equivalent Spa Services credit (not combinable, no cash value if not redeemed in full)
Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability
Complimentary Wi-Fi

Note that breakfast at Windsore Cottage is included with Beach Village reservations so the breakfast credit for two could be used at Sheerwater on the main resort for a change of pace. I can also help you decide which accommodations to choose. However, if you know what you want, depending on the cottage type and length of stay you, might be better off booking with a Hilton HHonors discount.

Hotel Del Coronado

Neighborhood: Coronado
Beach: Coronado Municipal Beach
Why Go: You like historic hotels with a big roster of amenities. The red roof of this famous San Diego hotel has become one of the city’s icons. The list of Hollywood celebrities, U.S. Presidents and other dignitaries who have stayed at Hotel Del Coronado since its opening in 1888 is nothing short of impressive.
Not only is it one of the best San Diego hotels, it’s also located on one of the best beaches in San Diego. Coronado Municipal Beach is also considered one of America’s best beaches by the Travel Channel. Waves usually break gently here and tide pools reveal themselves at low tides. There is also the famous Sandcastle Man who occasionally builds crazy-ornate sandcastles near the hotel. A mineral in the sand called Mica causes it to shimmer and it’s particularly beautiful to see it glow in the shore break. Expansive, flat sand means it’s possible to enjoy a lovely jog in the morning while picking sand dollars and other shells along the way.
Beach Amenities:

Full-service beach area called Del Beach with luxury lounge chairs, umbrellas, half-moon cabanettes and day beds for full-day rental
Chairside drink and food ordering available at Del Beach (it’s the only place where alcoholic drinks are permitted, FYI)
Stand-up paddle board and surf lessons
Early morning yoga on the beach and outdoor beachside spinning classes.
A beachside boardwalk in front of the hotel perfect for riding bikes and surreys (rentals are available)
Private beach bonfires with s’more roasting
Boogie board, surfboard and skim board rentals

Resort Amenities:

DelVentures activity center for ages 4-12 featuring, 3-hour evening activities and 1-hour activities on weekends that include Art Labs, Weird Science Adventures and more
MooTime Creamery ice cream treats on site
Water toys and fun in the main pool
Summer s’mores and dive-in movie nights
17 shops to browse (Babcock & Story is my personal favorite)
Several beachfront dining and cocktail areas with amazing sunset views
San Diego’s best Sunday brunch in the Crown Room
Family portraits arranged through the Concierge
Full-service Spa at The Del
Adults-only pool

Good to Know:  The resort has over 750 rooms and can feel very busy during peak times as residents and tourists visit the shops and restaurants, too. It is not a good choice for people looking for a quiet getaway but it is extremely popular with families (kids love it). The hotel is often categorized as a luxury resort, and in many aspects it is, but it’s truly a four-star property. People who are the happiest in residence here book in knowing it can be busy, they want a great full-service beachfront resort with great food, and aren’t fussy about being waited on hand and foot.
Restaurants and shops on Orange Avenue are within walking, distance and there is a ferry from downtown San Diego to Coronado (on the other side of the island, about a 30-minute walk). There is also quite a bit to do during the holidays at Hotel Del Coronado from a seaside ice skating rink to other special programming.
Awards: AAA Four Diamonds, Top 100 Resort Spas in the United States, Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Poll, 2015 and many more
Reservations: Virtuoso amenities I can secure for you (at no additional cost) include (for 2018):

Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability (room upgrades are not possible in Beach Village)
Daily Buffet breakfast, for up to two in-room guests
$100 USD Equivalent Spa Services credit (not combinable, no cash value if not redeemed in full)
Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability
Complimentary Wi-Fi

More often than not, the Virtuoso rate I can secure for you is far more beneficial than anything else out there.
Book on HiltonRequest VIP Rates
(Note: There is also a Loews Coronado which is waterfront on the bay and usually less expensive than Hotel Del Coronado. Note that you need to take a shuttle to the ocean beach beach and it is a little isolated. If a beach is a priority, stay at The Del.)

Paradise Point Resort and Spa

Neighborhood: Mission Bay

Beach: Mission Bay Beach
Why go: You’d like a secluded tropical resort experience that is great for all types of travelers, especially those with families, with a fascinating history. Paradise Point, a Destination Hotel, is a 462-room bungalow-style resort set on Mission Bay that was established in 1962 by famous Hollywood Director Jack Skirball.

Good to Know: You’re also going to read mixed reviews of this resort, like other Mission Bay resorts, many of which were written before rooms were renovated (some are still not renovated so be sure to book rooms or suites that have been). The resort is quite large, so there can be a decent amount of walking though golf cart rides are available. You will have to drive 15 minutes or so to the ocean beach in Mission Bach as it is not walkable from here. It is possible to walk to the front entrance of SeaWorld in about 15 minutes.

Crystal Pier Hotel

Neighborhood: Pacific Beach
Beach: Pacific Beach (Crystal Pier separates North Pacific Beach from Pacific Beach)
Why go: You’d like to sleep over the ocean in one of San Diego’s most unique hotels. Built in 1930, the Cape Cod-style cottages are located on privately-owned Crystal Pier. You will hear the waves roll in and out underneath the pier. The beach below offers expansive flat sand and access to the popular boardwalk for biking and beachside walks. The nearby area is packed with fun bars, restaurants and beach life so staying on the pier provides a little respite. Walk a bit north from the pier to hit the Tourmaline Surfing Park, a local favorite.
Beach Amenities:

The pier is one of the best places in San Diego to fish (with a valid license)

Hotel Amenities:

Gated key night entry for safety
No onsite dining but you don’t need it. Kono’s is steps from the entrance and a fabulous spot, among others.

Good to Know:  Depending on tides, all cottages may not be over water but either way, because the waves are loud this may not be a good choice for light sleepers. The pier is open to the public during the day.
Awards: TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

Blue Sea Beach Hotel

Neighborhood: Pacific Beach
Beach: Pacific Beach
Why Go: This is a good choice for people who want to be on the beach, in the middle of the action and in a newly renovated boutique hotel. Simply step over the boardwalk and directly into the sand.

Pacific Terrace Hotel

Neighborhood: Pacific Beach

This hotel is closer to Law Street beach than the others on this list which is very popular with families. The hotel has a two-room family suite. Extra beds are blow-up beds and not traditional rollaway beds.

La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club (Top Pick)

Neighborhood: La Jolla
Beach: La Jolla Shores
Why Go: You’d like a quieter beachfront vacation with the comforts of home or are traveling with a large or extended family and need accommodations to fit everyone.

It’s one of San Diego’s best spots for snorkeling, learning to surf, SUP, kayaking and much more and is also within walking distance to its quiet business district full of restaurants and shops.

It’s the kind of place that generations return every year for a family holiday. The buildings are a bit dated, but the accommodation interiors have been mostly refreshed. While accommodations are not fancy, they do suit many luxury travelers because they like the special experience and private beach.  It’s one of the best places for a big family beach vacation or an extended holiday in the upscale community of La Jolla.
Reservations: While I do not have exclusive amenities to offer, I book people in here all the time and would be happy to do the same for you with advice about which room to choose, etc.

La Jolla Shores Hotel

Neighborhood: La Jolla
Beach: La Jolla Shores
Why Go: You’d like to base the family in La Jolla (near UCSD) at a San Diego beach hotel that won’t break the bank. La Jolla Shores beach is also one of the best places to learn how to surf, stand-up paddle board or kayak La Jolla’s rare 600-acre underwater ecological reserve. It is very easy to take the kids to the beach for an hour or two, take a break in the room, and return to the beach again in the afternoon. We staycationed at La Jolla Shores Hotel a few years ago and loved it. It is incredibly popular with families.
Beach Amenities:

A flat, sandy beach

Good to know: The swimming pool isn’t huge. The awesome shops and restaurants on Avenida de la Playa are a short walk away including Piatti, the Cheese Shop, Surf Diva and more. As the name implies, this hotel is located in the La Jolla Shores area and not in the main Village of La Jolla. It’s much quieter over here, and the beach is miles better. It’s located next door to the La Jolla Beach and Tennis club and while not fancy, it’s fantastic.

Beach Terrace Inn

Neighborhood: Carlsbad
Beach: Carlsbad
Why Go: This laid-back hotel has been owned by the same family since the 1960s and is the only hotel located directly on the beach in North County. Tucked away at the end of a quiet residential road, they’ve opted to stay a small hotel with big rooms rather than a more prominent hotel with smaller rooms.

A private beach entrance
Complimentary beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas
