FAQs about hotels in San Diego

The Art of Easy Living

Sweeping along the coast against a mountain backdrop, San Diego has easy living down to a fine art. Its wonderful beaches and mild climate make it a favorite spring break destination, and with over 40 city breweries, there are plenty of ice cold beers to set the mood.

The city’s most recognizable landmark is the Hotel del Coronado, a wooden Victorian beach resort, now a National Historic Landmark. As original Spanish mission and first in California, it's has been relocated to the Mission Valley area, and Old Town San Diego still has many Colonial buildings and quirky shops. Also great for shopping are Horton Plaza and the boutiques in the beachfront neighborhoods.

The city’s most famous attraction is its zoo in Balboa Park, a few blocks from San Diego International Airport. One of the world’s largest zoos, it is well worth a visit, as is the fantastic SeaWorld, home to several killer whales. To see wildlife in its natural habitat head to La Jolla beach where harbor seals rest, or watch whales in season from Point Loma Lighthouse.

Just over the border from Mexico’s Tijuana, San Diego has a distinctly Latin American vibe and a variety of accommodations encompassing apartments, motels, B&Bs and hotels. See for the best deals.

    There is so much to see but my personal favorite was visiting ‘Old Town’. The place is filled with history. I am a person who likes to walk and I was able to walk to almost everything and I did use the bus to get to my destinations and an Uber to return to my hotel.

    So much to see and do.

    So much to see and do. Balboa Park is a wonderful place and has many amazing museums to explore. The floating Maritime Museum in the harbour is superb. Coronado Island is a fun side trip and worth visiting too. Also enjoyed walking along the many miles long of beach walk ways with quintessential Southern California cool surfer culture. Wonderful Mexican food venues everywhere! Driving on the freeway and busy highways is not for the faint hearted as traffic can be challenging with aggressive drivers everywhere.

    I went to pick up my brother's ashes and bring him back with me and to visit my other brother. I always love going there. Everything about it: I didn't have time to do anything this time and my funds were low because apparently, nobody offers bereavement discounts any longer. AND I AM STILL WAITING FOR MY $60 REFUND FOR THE DEPOSIT FROM THE ATWOOD MOTEL FROM 1/18/2024!

    An ultra modern city. Extensive museums and facilities.

    An ultra modern city. Extensive museums and facilities. Busy night life. Being ex navy the USS Midway was of great interest being an aircraft carrier of 1945 and now a museum. The old town was a disappointment.

    San Diego has incredible food.

    San Diego has incredible food. If you are a sushi lover, try Blue Ocean. Their rolls are affordable and you cannot beat the view. Parking is challenging almost everywhere in town, prepare to walk. Beaches are clean for the most part and water is warm in summer. Love this city.

    The room was big and very clean, and we had 2 comfortable beds. When we checked in the room allocated was close to the elevators, and we asked to move which they did to a much quieter room. The hotel overall is a little dated, but we liked the holiday atmosphere. Breakfast was very good, the only suggestion is that they would use real knives and forks, plates etc. instead of plastic. Parking was plentiful and free. The hotel is close to bars and restaurants, and convenient for all the highlights that San Diego offers.

Location located close to freeway(15 min drive to downtown San Diego), gas station,and shopping center. Also in walking distance to resturants. This is a great place for a family on a budget! You can go to the plaza and just grab food to heat up in your hotel kitchen.

    We were able to park the car and walk to both sides of the island (bay side and Ferry Landing; and ocean side and Hotel Del Coronado). We walked to the ferry and went over to downtown San Diego and walked to enough attractions to fill a day and evening, then back to the ferry. On return, the patio seating area out on Orange Ave is awesome. The room had an island hut vibe to it. Convenient check-in and check-out. Groceries within walking distance allowed us to pit the lottle refrigerator to use. Good stay!

    The room was spacious, airy, well appointed and very comfortable with a nice bathroom. The staff were super friendly and helpful. A delightful small hotel with character in an excellent location in a quiet area with a view of the ocean from the balcony and just steps from the small beach and the La Jolla cove walk. Pelicans, sea lions and seals just minutes away made for a extremely enjoyable stay. A great area with easy access to all the attractions that San Diego has to offer.

    My son and his wife stayed here a few months ago and highly recommended this motel. Motel is very basic but extremely clean which is a must for me when traveling. We traveled to San Diego area and Del Cornado so the location was just fine. A/C a little loud but at least it worked well. Hard to believe only 6 parking spots for hotel but we were able to find free public parking on the street. Great place to drop your bags and hit the town. Oh, can't beat the price.

    The room was very spacious and clean. The breakfast is ok but nothing special. The hotel itself is situated on the main road and has an adequate bus connection to the Old Town Transit Centre where this is the main transport of buses, trams and the Amtrax train. If you prefer to walk from here to the hotel, (which I did) took me 19 minutes. The centre of San Diego takes only a few minutes by tram.

    The hotel has everything you need, there is a market in the lobby with 24 hours service and they serve starbucks coffee. They have sandwiches and fruits so that was very convenient. The hotel is located by the sea so it's about 20 minutes walk to reach downtown san Diego where all the action is. The room was ok, nothing special about it, however, the view from the room was amazing.

    This is a well restored older hotel within walking distance to Old Town where there is practicially no parking anywhere. It is main road accesable to Mission Bay, Downtown, the airport for half the price of hotels just as nice. Good breakfast. Rooms are large with 2 sinks, one in bathroom and one out for families. Excellent value for visitors to San Diego.

    The Comfort Inn was very comfortable, and clean. The service staff were helpful. San Diego is expensive so relative to the area the refunded amount was a fair price offered for the hotel. The location was excellent for the centre of San Diego, and the Conference Centre at a slightly reduced rate compared to other places in the area.

    I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful this hotel was and walking distance to so many restaurants. Also, it was in the historic Gaslamp district which was cute. Close to San Diego attractions like the Petco stadium, SD zoo, etc. The staff was friendly and promptly responsive. Room was clean and spacious, beautiful.

    Our room was very clean, and it was nice being able to step right outside and go down to the bay to eat our first meal in San Diego by the water. Everybody working in the hotel was very friendly and helpful, they recommended some great activities for my brother and I to celebrate his high school graduation!

    Whenever I attend a conference at the San Diego Convention Center, I try to get a room at the Hyatt. It's a terrific hotel, with great rooms, great views, and a really good bar and restaurants. It's a little pricey, for sure. But it's so worth it. And the entire Gaslamp is right across the street.
