Discover Where to Stay in San Diego, CA

America’s Finest City is full of pleasant neighborhoods that feature great hotel options for the whole family. You can stay at a fun resort with an outdoor pool or sleep in comfort at one of the very simple and affordable motels in San Diego. If you’re planning the trip of a lifetime, why not dabble in extravagance during your fun West Coast adventure? There are many luxury hotels in San Diego that feature spas, manicured balconies, amazing daily breakfast options and great bars and lounges.

If you’re planning to stay out late while you’re in the city, hotels in the Gaslamp Quarter will place you next to the best selection of bars and nightclubs. You can wake up to amazing views of waves crashing against the beach if you choose a hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Many couples searching for romantic places to stay choose hotels and resorts near the boardwalk at Mission Beach or the bluffs of La Jolla. Downtown is a great place to stay if you’re in town for business and looking for modern hotels that offer the technology and accommodations you need to get a good night's rest and get a little work done from the comfort of your room. Mission Valley houses many cheap San Diego hotels if you’re saving your cash for sightseeing.

Choosing When to Visit San Diego

The only thing more amazing than the beaches of San Diego is its weather. This city enjoys some seriously perfect weather all year long. People often credit San Diego with having a Mediterranean climate. You’ll enjoy planning your trip around the city’s warm, dry summers and wonderfully mild winters. In fact, shorts and sandals are acceptable throughout the year here. What else would you expect from a place where the temperature reaches 70 degrees Fahrenheit more than 200 days out of the year? If you’re coming during January or February, packing a light jacket to stay comfortable when temperatures dip to 50 degrees Fahrenheit is advisable. You can expect it to reach 88 degrees Fahrenheit during summer’s peak.

The Secrets of Getting Around San Diego

While mild temperatures may motivate you to tour the city by foot, San Diego has a sprawling landscape that isn’t always easily explored by pedestrians. Grabbing a car rental in San Diego is the best way to guarantee that you’ll have the freedom to visit attractions at your own pace. Of course, you can always park your car and walk around or rent a bicycle once you get in the vicinity of the attractions you want to explore. The Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) provides both a trolley system and a bus route for the public to use. You can ride the rail system to get around downtown and travel near the border with Mexico. The city’s buses go as far as Hillcrest, Coronado and La Jolla.

Discover Amazing Things to See and Do in San Diego

Whether you like sunshine, family-friendly amusements, arts and culture, or fun party scenes, you’ll find plenty of things to do in San Diego. It’s important to narrow down some of the attractions you want to visit before you book your hotel. If you’re coming to town to surf, swim or sunbathe, you have plenty of San Diego hotels by the beach to choose from. You’ll think you’ve reached heaven when you wake up each morning just a stone’s throw away from La Jolla Cove, Windansea Beach, Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Black's Beach or Ocean Beach.

Many families find it important to stay close to top destinations such as San Diego Zoo, Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, Belmont Park and SeaWorld San Diego. Downtown’s hotels are perfect if you’re planning to catch a game at Petco Park and explore Balboa Park before enjoying a sophisticated dinner at an amazing restaurant or wine bar. Nights in San Diego are filled with the sounds of waves roaring beneath the dark sky and music and laughter pouring into the streets from great cocktail lounges and comedy clubs. You can choose between downtown bars that welcome people dressed in business attire and casual clubs by the beach.
