Hotels and Areas

I'm going to San Diego in September for 3 nights, and I don't know what area to stay in. We are also travelling to LA and Vegas, so San Diego is our 'beach' part of the holiday. We will be using public transport, so we need to be somewhere we can get to the main sights, especially the zoo and seaworld, but i would love to be near the beach. Our budget is a bit tight, as little as possible - $150 at most. Would I be better at the beach or in the ciry????....Thanks.

If you want to stay near a beach, in that price range, your best bet would probably be the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach area of town. From there, it's pretty close to SeaWorld, and you could get a bus to the zoo; or some hotels provide zoo transportation.

These hotels are in that general area, but post back with any questions about any of the hotels once you've narrowed it down
