We are planning on traveling to San Diego as a family for my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary. Our travel dates are July 1st for 7 or 8 nights in 2014. There will be 4 families (2 adults 1 kid, 2 adults 2 kids, 2 adults 2 toddlers and 2 elderly adults) so we will need 4 rooms. One of the kids has severe allergies so we need a stove, microwave and refrigerator for at least one room. We would like to be in somewhat close vicinity of San Diego for Zoo, Sea World and a nice dinner for 40th wedding anniversary so taking recommendations on that as well. We would like a hotel with a pool for the kids. I have not been able to find any hotels within our budget of around $200 a night per room except for the Old Town Inn which did not pass approval from the elderly couple. I was able to find Homewood Suites in Carlsbad but just worry we will be spending a good amount of time in the car due to traffic and distance. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
