Point Loma is my choice for a perfect blend of access!shops!great fresh food and affordable lodgings just a block from the sport fishing harbor.I had a four day quick visit suddenly available and I watched hotel prices zoom from a city average of 200 to 385 <per the newspaper) with Pride and Comicon<150,000 visitors) in a couple of days.a friend recommended dolphin hotel ( $70-110 and I remembered Point Loma-cheap renta car is preferred. There is a bus. But airport is 5 min. Midway and museums ten and convention center is ten min!! What could be better..yes the dolphin is simple. Great simple yogurt and banana free breakfast...very clean rooms. Think red roof but clean. And every staff member is super attentive and knows your name..what could be better.. Everything you need. Clean value priced and nothing you do not need. And simple parking. Lot full but staff always finds you a spot. Do not panic they will get you parking...not using big lots in city-major construction has eliminated most city hotel lots-not only saved us $20 day but saved us an hour on each end of trip. Not to mention that dolphin was one third or less the price of the city hotels just a mile away. I'll take simple with a great staff every time. Particularly when I saved almost $1000 using the dolphin vs the marriott on a four day trip. I travel 60 nights a year and til now I never came home saving hundreds on food parking and lodging. Thank you dolphin and after son owners and staff. Semper. fi
