Any hotel can offer comfortable furnishings, modern conveniences and stellar service, but not many can provide guests with an authentic San Diego experience. Located just steps away from the white sandy beaches of Imperial Beach, minutes from Downtown San Diego and Coronado Island and up the road from the Tijuana border, everything that makes San Diego, well, San Diego, is all within easy reach of Sand Castle Inn, a truly one-of-a-kind beachside hotel.
From the moment you step into the inn’s courtyard, you know you’re in for a treat. From the outdoor fixtures to the Spanish tile in the lobby to the driftwood-inspired furnishings in every room, everything about the hotel’s décor is designed to add to your Mexicali experience. The rooms are spacious, clean and airy, the staff friendly and the amenities convenient.
True Beach Town Vibe
Stroll to Imperial Beach Pier or spend a day with family and friends at Portwood Pier Plaza.
When you stay at the Sand Castle Inn, you get the best of all worlds. Not only is the beach right across the street but also, the best of San Diego, Tijuana and Coronado are all just a short drive away.
Head right outside the hotel’s entrance and you’ll find yourself faced with numerous things to do, including Imperial Beach Pier, nearby restaurants and local shops. Take the Interstate 5 northbound to get to downtown San Diego and all it has to offer, including the San Diego Maritime Museum, the San Diego Zoo, the Gaslamp Quarters, U.S.S. Midway, Old Town, PETCO Park and much more. Head a bit farther north for a fun-filled day at SeaWorld, LEGOLAND or the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. If you head south for a few minutes you’ll hit the U.S./Mexico border, beyond which is Tijuana, a mecca of authentic eateries, unique shops and lively bars.
Sand Castle Inn may be unassuming, and it may not feature all the luxuries of big-name hotels. Still, past guests can all agree that its location and homey vibe serve as the cherry on top of an already exciting San Diego vacation. If you want to embark on a real So-Cal adventure, this is the hotel at which to do it.
