San Diego Hotel with Parking

My partner and I are will be staying 4 nights (Sep) in San Diego as part of a 4 week south west road trip.

I have been reseraching hotels however am finding it difficult to narrow them down to meet our needs in particular somewhere to stay with reasonable charges for parking.

We enjoy the beach however also like to be close to nightlife/restaurants.

This portion of our roadtrip will be in the last week so "must do things" are fairly casual however we do hope to make a visit to the Zoo and/or Sea World.

Budget will be approx $200 to $250 if possible. We are willing to increase if parking is free.

Any help on hotels would be greatly appreciated.

A highly rated Hotel at TA with free parking is the Old Town Inn.


Not near the beach, if looking for something closer, the Bahia or Catamaran Resort are also highly rated. here at TA.

Although the Catamaran Resort charges something like$15 per night for parking you can find FREE parking on the residential streets nearby. We have stayed there ourselves for in town getaways and have never had a problem finding a free parking space within 1 block of the hotel. Be aware that different prices are charged for the varying rooms so that the least expensive rooms may have views of the parking lot which would not be very nice! Your budget should allow for a bay facing room which would be lovely!!

Depending on which nights you are there you could take advantage of their "party boat" that goes out on the bay in the evening.

Staying in our small bayfront downtown(which includes the gaslamp entertainment district) would give you more clubs/dance clubs bars etc. but parking charges in general will be higher. Sometimes hotels offer deals that include the parking so you might make a res held by your credit card (without paying for the hotel) and keep watching for other deals as time gets closer to your visit. Then you could cancel and rebook if you see something better. You might also consider a place like the Best Western Bayside which is downtown and an easy walk to the restaurants/night spots in our Little Italy neighborhood as well as to the spots in the gaslamp.
