I stayed at this property for about 3 weeks while in the area on a business trip. I was upgraded to a suite which was beautiful. The room was very spacious and had an amazing. The front desk staff was always friendly and attentive. I hope to return!

Quiet time of year
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I was here the weekend of June 1, 2019, and other than the weather found his perfect for a quiet solo trip. (Cloudy and cool but oh well.)

The town wasn’t too busy. If I reserve beachfront you can ensure good view of the shore.

Overhaul comments about the noise levels in the rooms themselves from flooring are accurate so bring earplugs if u are super light sleeper

We absolutely love Pier South Resort
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My husband and I visited Pier South during Memorial Day weekend. We live in San Diego and Pier South is our favorite hotel. We stay at least five times a year. The staff, including reception (Ericka), valet, wait staff in Sea 180 restaurant (James) and sunset wine/beer reception are all wonderful. Our favorite room type is the oceanfront studio. Views are just amazing. We find the hotel has a beachy vibe that is located right on the sand. You cannot get any closer to the water. The surrounding neighborhood has some good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. The Imperial Beach pier is right next to hotel. The hotel has bikes that you can use to bike to the Estuary. Do yourself a favor and book a stay at Pier South. We already have another stay booked.

Best Option If Participating in IRONMAN Superfrog Triathlon
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We booked this hotel almost a year in advance of the race as it sells out quickly. It's a bit pricy, but totally worth it for the ease and convenience if you are a participant or supporting spectator. The race takes place literally in front of the hotel beach area. If you are the triathlete, you do not have to wake up super early to find parking and make it on time for start of the race. You literally walk less than a block. If you are the supporting spectator, you can go back to your room when needed for bathroom or to rest. We were able to sit on our ocean facing balcony and watch the run portion of the race. It is nice to not feel stuck without anywhere to go while waiting for your race participant. The rooms are all suites so they are pretty spacious like a small one bedroom apartment. The views to the ocean are great too. Great smelling toiletires and very upgraded amenties inside the rooms. Rooms have a bit of a Miami decor feel with light wood and coastal decor and color scheme. You can valet or easily find parking on the street. There are various eateries you can walk to, or you can drive 20-30 mins into San Diego to venture more. We will definately be staying here if doing this race again.

Pier South Pleasure

I loved the rooms so much I left like just staying in when I can. Its easy to feel at home and the view of the beach from the room balcony is just breathtaking particularly in the morning and in the evening. The staff were very pleasant and very helpful. Check and check out was done expeditiously.
