    Best Times to Visit

    Because of its sheer variety of destinations, there is no bad time to visit California. The most popular time of year is late spring through early summer, when the beautiful California weather is in full swing. You can hit the beach in sunny San Diego or Los Angeles, view the spectacular waterfalls and wildflower blooms in Yosemite National Park, or take a scenic stroll through the verdant countryside of Napa Valley. September through October is an ideal time to visit Disneyland®, Knott’s Berry Farm®, Universal Studios®, and many of the state's other popular tourist attractions as the weather is still comfortable, but there are fewer crowds and slightly lower prices. Fall is also a great time to visit some of the state's desert attractions, such as Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Park. In the winter, California's numerous ski resorts serve as the perfect destinations for hitting the slopes and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

    Geography

    California is very much a land of contrasts with varied geography that runs the gamut from parched, sunbaked deserts in the south to temperate, misty forests and snow-capped mountain ranges in the north. The state is home to portions of the beautiful Sierra Nevada and Cascade Ranges, including the towering spire of Mount Whitney, which stands as the tallest peak in the Lower 48. The Coast Ranges, famed for the towering coast redwoods that thrive in the mountainous terrain, run along the western portion of the state. Between the mountain ranges, the Central Valley is home to both bucolic farmlands and inland cities such as Sacramento. Bordering the Pacific Ocean, the western coast of California is world-renowned for its unique terrain and stunning vistas. With so many different climates and environments, there truly are resorts in California for just about everyone. Let Expedia.com help you find the perfect fit for your West Coast escape.

    "Ok hotel"
    I missed my connecting flight and decided to look for a hotel nearby to stay. This hotel was the closest one to the airport so I decided to stay for the night and leave early in the morning. I liked the free shuttle service that ran to and from the airport every 30 min or so. I had a large room with a king bed. However, the room was hardly furnished. There was the bed, a desk and one small lamp. I didn't like how I had to walk into a dark room to turn on the lamp on the night stand. Kinda freaked me out. There was a lot of empty space that made me feel uncomfortable personally. Idk how the rooms are for the rest of the hotel but mine was just alright.

    "A wonderful hotel, not the best neighbourhood."
    A great hotel close to union square. The rooms are clean and well maintained, the staff friendly and helpful. This is a great hotel to stay at but be careful if you're walking from the hotel. Homeless people are plentiful though not aggressive, they will approach you almost as soon as you're outside.

    "Nice property centrally located. "
    Expansive property with several amenities centrally located in Mission Valley made for easy access and relaxing time. Property is a little dated and exterior noise levels heard within the room were higher than expected. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. As with most San Diego hotels, not sure why they feel the need to charge for parking.
