Looking for a Cheap San Diego Convention Center Hotel?

The cost of attending a convention in San Diego is not cheap. Visitors have to factor in the price of the actual event or ticket, cross-country airfare, hotel accommodations, dining while visiting and much more. So if you have any desire to explore the rest of the city during your trip, it’s important to carefully plan where you are going to allocate your budget.

If you’re looking for ways to cut costs for your upcoming convention trip to San Diego, you’ve come to the right place. The Marina Inn in downtown San Diego offers affordable Convention Center accommodations and low nightly rates year round. We are committed to helping our guests save and offer a handful of complimentary amenities including free parking, wireless internet, cable television and hot breakfast prepared fresh daily.

Getting to the Convention Center from our Hotel

We are conveniently located 2 miles away from the San Diego Convention Center, just outside of Little Italy and along the San Diego Bay. As we mentioned, we offer free parking in our private lot, a valuable asset to travelers as finding a spot to park downtown can be exhausting, not to mention expensive. If you’re driving to the SDCC, simply head out of our parking lot, make a left on N Harbor Drive and follow the road for about a mile and a half where you’ll reach the front of the Convention Center. You also have the option to hail a taxi for an affordable fare (around $5) and there is also a light rail trolley stop located outside of our doors that will take you directly to the Convention Center. If you plan to use the trolley for your primary means of transportation, purchase a trolley pass for $5 (price may vary depending on year) which provides you with unlimited rides for the entire day.

Affordable Lodging near the SDCC & Top Tourist Attractions

In addition to our close proximity to the SDCC, we are within walking distance of the historic Little Italy which is overflowing with art galleries, museums and authentic Italian restaurants. While the cultural neighborhood is one of our favorite nearby destinations, we are also located near:
