Hotel at a Glance: Sand Castle Inn and Suites

Fun in the sun is just steps away from Sand Castle Inn and Suites. The Pacific Ocean’s sandy shore is a mere block from the hotel, so you can spend a day at the beach and catch a crimson sunset with scarcely any effort. At the end of the day, you’ll have plenty of time to rinse the sand off before scooting up to San Diego for a night on the town.

  • Where you’ll stay: in a queen or double-queen room with plush bedding and a leftover-friendly fridge and microwave
  • Panoramic ocean views: Take a five-minute walk to Imperial Beach Pier to enjoy 360º views of the Pacific Ocean.
  • Grab a bite at restaurants and cafés peppered along Seacoast Drive.
  • Hit the town: A scenic drive up Silver Strand Boulevard will get you to downtown San Diego in about 30 minutes.
  • Bring your passport: Hit the road and head southeast for 9 miles and you’ll find yourself in downtown Tijuana.

San Diego, California: Electric Nightlife and Historical Attractions

San Diego’s sunny, comfortably warm weather and 70 miles of coastline have long attracted out-of-towners, but the city’s inland scene is no slouch, either. The Gaslamp Quarter is arguably the trendiest listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The area forms both the historic center of town and a hub of nightlife, with nearly 100 Victorian-era buildings occupied by high-end boutiques and gourmet restaurants.

A stroll through iconic Balboa Park takes you past 17 museums, as well as the world-famous San Diego Zoo. There’s also the vibrant Spanish Village Art Center, a living gallery where local artists produce pottery and oil paintings. In Old Town, shops in Mission-style stucco buildings sell colorful woven baskets and maracas. Nearby stands the Whaley House Museum, dubbed one of the Most Terrifying Places in America by the Travel Channel. Ghosts of former residents are said to inhabit the rooms, which are filled with Victorian furniture and eerie dolls.

Absolute hands down best vacation I have ever been on! I'm so glad I found this little gem of a hotel. It's about a 60 second walk to the ocean and the view is absolutely spectacular because you're right by the pier. The restaurants in the area are to die for. The beach itself is the best beach I have ever been to. I will definitely be going back every chance I get.
