California Beach Hotels - California's Beaches Hotels



California beach hotels include cottages, single rooms and suites with ocean views, garden or patio views and even views of a highway in some instances. Planning a beach vacation is important when you only have limited time to enjoy a getaway. Oceanfront luxury and spectacular views will cost you. Affordable hotels at the beach sometimes fall short of your hopes when they cost quite a bit but don't deliver on the room quality or amenities. 


This happens most often during the travel season - May through November. July 4th weekend is one of the worst times to try to find a deal at the beach, in fact.  From  first-class AAA four-diamond hotels or five diamond resorts to AAA two-diamond budget properties, you can often find some deals, especially on week days when the hotels have rooms to fill or in the off season. We often scan our booking service and scour the beach cities for some specials. The chart below was a difficult chart to create because a hotel can sometimes be at the waterfront with no beach. The hotel may have a bridge that crosses a highway and lands you on the beach. Whenever possible, we've made note of these situations. The main thing to remember is that most beach hotels in California are not cheap. If you want less expensive options, go inland where you may have to drive to the beach.
