Crystal Pier Hotel and Cottages Review

Crystal Pier, a Pacific Beach landmark, had its grand opening in 1927; 10 years later, the first of the blue-and-white cottages were built. Rustic little oases with a charm all their own, the cottages may lack some of the amenities of comparably priced hotels, but you're paying for character and proximity to the ocean—these lodgings are literally on the pier. Most units sleep four but cost the same no matter what the occupancy; only one suite has air-conditioning. Call four to six months in advance for reservations. There's a minimum-stay requirement of three nights from mid-June through September, two nights the rest of the year.
