"If you can afford it you must..." San Diego Hotel Tip by rstary

San Diego Hotels: 337 reviews and 362 photos


If you can afford it you must stay at least one night at the Hotel del Coronado. ($466/night). We didn't stay there but visited. We stayed at the Lawrence Welk Resort in Escondido which was very nice and affordable. We had a one bedroom suite which accommodated our family of five very well.
$466 US. I inquired through hotwire.com for a hotel on Coronado and they came back with a five star for $266. So if you want to gamble, I think it might be the only five star hotel on the island. (Hotwire doesn't tell you who the hotel is until you book)

Unique Qualities: Hotel del has a beautiful view of the ocean and it is absolutely filled with old world charm. A five star hotel. Even if you don't stay there you must visit.

Price Comparison: most expensive
Directions: Hotel Del is on Coronado Island and Lawrence Welk Resort is in Escondido.
Theme: Hotel
