I was wondering if anyone could make a hotel recommendation for 4 college students traveling out to San Diego for the BCS National Championship game in Pasadena. (There was no air available into Los Angeles). I am looking for a safe area with sightseeing activities close to inexpensive restaurants. They will be driving to Acadia to stay before the game and then back to San Diego airport to fly home. A Hilton hotel would be nice since we are HH members. They are not looking for nightlife but just some general sightseeing-they will be in San Diego for 2 nights. It's nerve racking to worry they will end up in a bad part of town so would just like some general advice from the locals. Thanks in advance!
