I don't know who writes their reviews but it's not as they say! I always read the reviews and trust them but not this time. Where do I start positive the front desk people are super nice and helpful. The rooms are big. The bedding looks clean. The beach is a surf, biggie board play in the sand but the...

We came for a memorial service for one of our family members and the staff was very accommodating. We had a two bedroom apartment for our family which gave us two parking spaces - very important in that part of town. It is also right across the street from the grocery store. We had 16 people for lunch and the...

When arriving to the weathered exterior, I thought I might be in for a less than pleasant accommodations. But once I entered the lobby and was greeted by the great staff - and checked out my room - I was delightfully surprised! The place was super clean - had everything I needed - was on the beach and a really...

We have stayed here 4 times now; super clean, charming facility! I'd recommend staying in rooms on 2nd or 3rd floors facing the cottages ; rooms in west wing facing street are very noisy if you leave your door open. All the rooms are simple , clean and the views are exceptional! Great family atmosphere; walking distance to many restaurants!...

We've been coming to the Beach Cottages for quite a few years now and always look forward to returning. It's a great way to experience the chill, relaxing California beach vibe at a fair price. The kitchen facilities in many of the rooms and cottages give the option to save on meals and create a more homey feeling. The common...

The cottages are wonderful and well equipped and just steps to the beach. They have everything one would need for a nice time. A great ocean view (we had a middle cottage and there still was a straight view to the beach and strand), clean kitchen and a cute property with all the amenities including barbecues and shuffleboard. The only...

The cottages are wonderful as you can open the window and hear the ocean! You can sit outside your cottage and BBQ dinner and eat at your private patio table while sipping your glass of wine. You can walk to the grocery store across the street. Dine at the restaurants next door or down the boardwalk, play pingpong or just...

I have stayed many times at the beach cottages. I usually stay in the hotel portion. This property offers one and two bedroom cottages some with an ocean view. Hotel rooms with suites. The room I stayed in had a king size bed and a sitting area with a love seat coffee table and a desk. Each room has a...

We have been going to the Beach Cottages for about 30 years. We have stayed in the main building, the hotel wing and the cottages. All are excellent. There are many things we love about the Beach Cottages but the main ones are....the absolute consistency of cleanliness and keeping the property up to date, the quality of the employees, and...

I loved The Beach Cottages. The pictures show just how it is. The room was nice, clean and the bed was comfortable. It was mostly quiet and just right at the beach. When we went it wasn't a busy time so that made it even nicer. The staff were very nice. I have no complaints and plan to go back...
