Crystal Pier Hotel

The Pacific coast of California is something of an icon. It's hard to think of it without imagining windswept hair, sand in your toes and wetsuited surfers pulling themselves out of the water. A few miles north of San Diego in Pacific Beach, the Crystal Pier offers a chance to live in this world for a few nights. Unlike other piers along the coast that are either dilapidated or taken over by fun fairs and Bubba Gumps, Crystal Pier has been turned into a hotel – a small community of sleepy blue and white Cape Cod-style cottages perched over the surf.

    I’ve spent a couple of nights here before and it was nice. If you ask me though, I’d say that the nights spent in the hostel just down the boardwalk from this place were much more entertaining and filled with interesting people. Some that I still keep in touch with to this day!

Any comments?
