The Crystal Pier Hotel Review

: Picture your own little village of historic cottages set atop the Pacific Ocean and you've envisioned The Crystal Pier Hotel. These adorable blue-and-white, Cape Cod-style houses line the Pacific Beach Pier where you can fish, ride bikes or gaze at the crashing waves and vast coastline cliffs. Built in 1927, this historic landmark offers private cottages with fully-equipped kitchenettes, hardwood floors and lots of windows to let in the natural light and sea breezes. Pacific Beach dining and shopping are mere steps away, while La Jolla attractions are a few short miles up the coast. While there is no spa, golf course or tennis court, the Big Blue is right outside your door. This place is ideal for families and sporty types who are more in search of adventure than luxury, and for those who want an authentic San Diego surfside experience. Pacific Beach is a lively beach town with plenty of bustling eateries and watering holes to enjoy after playing in the sea and sunshine.
