Looking for a hotel for a family of 4 - Going April 7 2013

Good day,

I have been stressing out looking for a hotel for myself, wife, 1y/o son and mother in law... We will be going to San Diego on April 7 and we will be staying for 4 nights. I think we will most likely rent a car as we have a baby, so free or affordable parking would be preferred.

We have never been to San Diego before, so we are not sure which location would be best. It would be nice to be close to family friendly restaurants and a swimming pool is a must :)

Holiday Inn San Diego-Bayside and The Dana on Mission Bay have been 2 hotels that we keep looking at.

Our budget would be $150 + or - $50 depending on if food and parking were included...

Thank you SO MUCH for your help! You guys are awesome :)

San Diego...

I just posted this to a similar response on another thread a few minutes ago. It 'might' help.


The Holiday Inn Bayside is a good location and has restaurants within walking distance. Some across the street and more a short walk.

The Dana is a resort property but there is nothing within walking distance. So if you want to be able to walk to a restaurant or get a coffee / tea 'off property' you can't. You need to get in your car and drive.
