Crystal Pier Hotel

Though called a hotel, this wonderful property is actually a collection of 26 cottages built out on a pier. Most of these temporary travelers' homes were built back in the 1930s; all of them have been renovated in recent years. You'll wish you could just move right in, since each cottage has its own bedroom, living room, patio and kitchen. With parking just outside your door, it would be hard to find more cozy convenience at any other hotel in the area. From sunrise to sunset, you'll enjoy a view of the ocean and the waves that few others will ever see. Rates are seasonal.
I have a very nice classic car and it's great being able to park your car in front of your room and having it locked in at night. The rooms are very clean and once it gets dark the pier is locked to the public. It's kind of pricey but I think its the best place to stay on the beach..literally.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Pier 4 years ago, now a marriage and two wonderful baby girls later, we can't wait to get back. There is something about the experience that made us certain of our future together. The pier, the ocean waves, the board walk makes you feel alive. It was a beautiful experience that will be cheerished and relived. Great place to rekindle your love.
Ok ...so I was in town at a conference and decided to stay a few extra days ... so when out one day I had seen this place on the pier and thought ...since I am from Chicago and it is freezing there right now so I thought I would treat myself ....so I checked into the Cryatal Pier Hotel ... the place was awesome an experience I will never ever foget .... the staff was great and accomodating ...the housekeepers were great ..and the workers in the office were so helpful in telling me where to go and eat every meal and get a good cup of coffee... BUT let me tell you the view was breath taking every minute of the day ...not to mention the handsome handy man that worked on the pier ...though he was NOT friendly he was very handsome and helpful when asked ...overall I would go back in a minute!!!

My sister started going to the pier, and I
joined her one year, and that did it. We have
been going back every year for about 10 years. I know the beds are little on the in-
expensive side. But at night you can lock up
and not be bothered by anyone. They have a
security guard on duty. So as far as the
board walk is conserned. The Pier has it beat. Usually we lock up, but once in a while we forget. No on has bothered out things. Long wait to get in, have to book a
year in advance, but what to expect sleeping
over the water. Be back next year.

What a WONDERFUL experience at Crystal Pier - The cabins are cozy and a great location - once in a lifetime stay - Took my Mother on a "Spring Break" after my Father had passed away - she didn't have time to think about Dad not being there - Loved the private patio to look out over the ocean and surfers - So many things close by to see - Only draw back is you need to plan ahead and get that reservation in - always booked when we visited San Diego before but THAT just tells you what a great place Crystal Pier is to stay and how we wait in line to get the chance to stay there - Mom is talking about going again and she says we are staying ALL of our nights here!!!!
We have been to the Crystal Pier several times, the day we leave, we count the days until we can come again. Everything is wonderful-the cottages, the veiws, the sounds-for us its the onlt place to stay in San Diego.
My family loves Crystal Pier. I was born and raised in San Diego and all of my family still lives there.I now live in Utah. Every year at Easter we all get together and stay on the pier for a week. It's now a family reunion and have been doing it for over 10 years. We have never had any problems with the staff they know us by name now and love our family. I would recomend to stay on the pier anyday. We have found the we like the south side a little more, it tends to be alittle less windy. Once you stay on the pier you we be hooked for life, yes it costs alittle more then some of the hotels by the beach but it is an experience you will remember forever and long for. I can't wait for this year in April to relax on the pier, watch and hear the waves, and see the beautiful sunsets. The Johnson Family
We got married on the beach below and had a small reception on the pier. It was wonderful, the staff was helpful and the location was perfect. The view was unbeatable. The cottages were very cute and clean. Perfect for our needs.
