I've been poring over TA california forums the past few days planning for our trip in Dec (we will be covering SF, LA, OC and SD). We are 2 A and 3 kids aged 10,8 and 3
On the SD leg, we plan to cover the usual : Legoland, Seaworld, Zoo plus a bit of the downtown. and I need good suggestions on which area to stay! (Considered carlsbad, but decided we shld stay in the SD area instead, nearer to the other attractions besides Legoland).
I am looking for a hotel room that can hopefully accomodate 5 (or a suite), near amenties (so we can pop out for a quick dinner or for supplies), and not too far (30 mins) from the major attractions. Preferably with free breakfast and internet and parking too. My budget for all of us is about US$250/night max. I like my hotel rooms nice and clean (and modern preferably!). Pool and beach not a major necessity.
I've shortlisted Embassy Suites La Jolla (which seems to tick the above) Any other suggestions would be most welcome!
