L'Auberge Del Mar

L'Auberge Del Mar Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The 120-room L'Auberge Del Mar is one of the top hotels on the Southern California coastline. It's located in beautiful Del Mar Village, right next to the beach, and its farm-to-table restaurant is exceptional. But although rooms are homey and have high-tech amenities, some of the views could be better, and few have tubs.
Grande Colonial Hotel

Grande Colonial Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

With a central location in La Jolla, a heated outdoor pool, and an array of great services -- including in-room massages, and daily turndown -- this upscale historic boutique is a solid pick for a relaxing coastal getaway. Rooms have classic, contemporary decor with a European feel, and modern technologies, such as iPod docks, HD flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Suites have wooden floors, cute kitchenettes, and cozy fireplaces. There are several beaches within walking distance, and dozens of restaurants and boutiques nearby -- but there is no fitness center on-site, and some rooms are a tad small for the price. Travelers wanting more spacious rooms and an on-site spa could try the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa.
Loews Coronado Bay Resort & Spa

Loews Coronado Bay Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 439-room resort right on the San Diego Bay, five minutes from the beach, is made for families, with three pools and activities galore (surf lessons, gondola rides in a private marina, a teen lounge...the list goes on). Restaurant options range from 24-room service to fine-dining at Mistral to a juice bar. But its isolated location on the Coronado peninsula is less convenient for seeing the sights, and extra fees can make guests feel nickel-and-dimed.
Paradise Point Resort and Spa

Paradise Point Resort and Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 462-room property near Sea World has sprawling, 44-acre grounds on a private island, activities galore (tennis, a putting green, water sports, basketball), five pools, a mile-long beach, bonfire pits and a spa. Rooms were renovated in 2010 and feature Balinese-inspired decor, patios, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks. But bathrooms could have used more of an upgrade, and some rooms have views of the parking lot.
La Valencia

La Valencia Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The historic, upscale La Valencia Hotel has held its prime location on the Pacific Ocean in the heart of sunny La Jolla since it was constructed in 1926. The Pink Lady, as it's affectionally called -- a nod to the Pepto pink exterior -- was renovated in 2014, bringing it squarely into this century with an updated Spanish style. Two on-site restaurants, a lively bar, and Spanish-inspired saltwater swimming pool facing the ocean are just part of this unique property's charm. Expect to pay extra for Wi-Fi and breakfast. Villas and rooms facing the pool aren't very private but include great details like dual shower heads and (some) outdoor fireplaces. Small pets are allowed for a fee -- a great perk in a state where pooches are considered part of the family.
Omni La Costa Resort and Spa

Omni La Costa Resort and Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 400-acre, 611-room megaresort near Legoland is packed with family features, including large rooms, six pools with waterslides, and an impressive kids club. The spa, golf courses, tennis courts, and on-site shopping help ensure adults have fun as well, but there are extra fees for almost everything.
Hotel del Coronado

Hotel del Coronado Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The iconic, family-friendly Hotel del Coronado is one of the largest and best-known resorts in Southern California, with 679 rooms right on the beach and an acclaimed fine dining restaurant and wine bar. It's located in charming Coronado Village, a short drive away from San Diego’s main attractions. But some rooms and bathrooms are small for the price, and could use updating.
Beach Village at The Del

Beach Village at The Del Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Beach Village at The Del is the more luxurious section if the iconic Hotel del Coronado, offering big upscale cottages right on the sand. Beach Village guests get exclusive extras that Hotel del Coronado guests do not: private pools, use of the Windsor Club Cottage, a free breakfast buffet, and better in-room amenities, such as iPod docks, fireplaces, kitchenettes, and terraces. The beachfront location is impossible to beat, and Beach Village guests get free beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. But prices are steep and there are some flaws: some ground-floor units have privacy issues due to passing pedestrian traffic, there are extra fees for Wi-Fi and parking, and some complain service isn't as seamless as it should be for this level of hotel.
Bahia Resort Hotel

Bahia Resort Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

While showing some age, Bahia Resort Hotel still has a lot of character and nice extras. A beautifully restored sternwheeler ship offers free cruises around Mission Bay for guests, and kids like watching the rescued seals kept in an enclosure on the well-maintained grounds. The rooms are a little bland, but the property is an ideal spot for families who want to take advantage of the calm bay waters and the sandy beach. While located on quiet peninsulas stretching into the bay like other hotels, the Bahia tends to have lower rates than its competitors.
Kona Kai Resort

Kona Kai Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

With its own beach, private marina, and updated spa, the Kona Kai feels more like a vacation resort than anything else. It's also farther down on the Shelter Island strip, making for a quieter, more relaxing spot than other area hotels -- with little to spoil the views from the gorgeous outdoor pool. Outfitted with small private balconies or patios, rooms are colorful enough to cover up the fact that some furnishings are worn. Still, boating enthusiasts, couples, and families willing to overlook a pesky resort fee can find plenty of amenities here, and business travelers will be close to the airport.
