Are you planning a trip on the California Coast and searching for a hotel that won’t disappoint? Well AAA has done a lot of the legwork by putting their stamp of approval on hotels that are clean and comfortable. Five Diamond Hotels are the highest rated and come with lots of extras. Consider those rare hotels and resorts “full-service.” Some travelers don’t plan to use all those frills but still want high-quality service. That’s where Four Diamond Hotels come in.

Four Diamond Hotels are much more abundant and can be found up and down the California Coast. In the remote parts of Northern California there are just a few options, but in Central and Southern California you’ll find many to choose from that are close to sandy beaches.
