There are only 6 hotels in the state of Ca that sits on the sand. Pier South Resort is the newest and the closest to the water than any other. Its a world class resort with huge ocean view rooms of 650 sq. ft rooms.

D'ames Spa is located inside of the resort and is famous for their D'ames California massage designed to relax lise you've never been relaxed before.

Sea 180 is also located inside of the resort and is one of top restaurants in San Diego and famous for their brussels sprouts.

As I understand it, this property used to be home to the Seacoast Inn but the smaller motel had seen better days and was demolished a few years ago. Then Pier South Resort sprung from the ashes and it is definitely a new and vastly improved lodging choice in Imperial Beach.

From the waterfall next to the valet to the open, airy lobby, I felt like I had arrived at Vegas-level resort. Everything about this location screams coastal luxury. While I've found the front desk clerks at some fancier resorts to be snooty, the people here were all friendly and helpful.

The room had floor-to-ceiling windows that lets you fully admire the coastline, including the pier. It was also incredibly spacious and had a relaxing ocean-inspired color scheme. I loved the ceiling fan over the bed that would provide a nice breeze.

There's also a restaurant and spa on-site.

So this place to me is a total mystery. You see, I didn’t find it online. What happened was that this place at one point closed and was renovated, but they don’t have a website. So if you’re looking for a way to stay here, you should just call them.
That aside, it’s totally awesome. Their new look is gorgeous and right near the water. You walk in and you feel a little bit out of place if you’re just a beach bum it’s so nice; the pool alone had my eyes twinkling with delight. And I believe this place has some security as I needed a card to get up to the rooms.
If you’re looking for stuff to do, it’s right next to Dunes Park and a block or so from Imperial Beach Pier. And of course, less than twenty minutes from downtown.

First to Review

When I opened the room door, my jaw dropped. The beach seemed to extend through the glass wall and into the room. This hotel offers the most stunning, on-the-beach feel of any I've ever seen. The hotel was remodeled just this year, and everything about it still sparkles and shines. I've been in most of the upscale hotels in San Diego, and this was the first to truly impress me, and their rates are distinctly lower. They have a well manicured beach-theme that permeates everything from the floor tiles to the window shades that is both attractive and modern. For the best experience here, book the president's studio on the second floor -- they are the one's with the most breath-taking views.

The catch? It's in Imperial Beach -- widely accepted as San Diego's worst beach, by far. There is less to do, it is much farther removed from the city, and is generally a less attractive neighborhood. Also, the ocean water is considered less clean because of currents from Tijuana. I have to say though, things are changing here, and if you plan on vacationing in the hotel, or directly beachfront, there is a lot of appeal here.
