Alright, I have finally booked the flight for the trip with my wife. Originally I was looking for the end of this month, but now we are going April 5-8. We need some help finding a hotel. Our budget is now under $150, including the price of parking (we will have a car) and preferably breakfast. My wife has also requested a place that has a king sized bed if possible.
So far I have found Best Western Plus Inn by the Sea in La Jolla and Best Western Plus Island Palms Hotel and Marina (I don't believe this one includes breakfast). If we can save $$ on the hotel, we will have more $$ for activities. Staying close to the water would also be nice to go for a morning run. Would it be a bad idea to wait until closer to the trip to see if there are any deals on hotel rooms?
Our itinerary so far includes Torrey Pines, La Jolla Cove, Point Loma, Old Town, beach time, Coronado, and downtown.Edited: 12:23 pm, February 09, 2013
