Although we are a preferred San Diego Zoo hotel, and suggest that all of our out of town guests check out the animal kingdom at least once, the attractions in San Diego go far beyond those for young children. If you are visiting San Diego with a group of friends or your significant other, there are plenty of options for first class dining, shopping and entertainment.
If you’re coming to San Diego in October, or anytime during the 2013 fall season, do your research on local events before planning your trip. For instance, if you want to be in the midst of all the action, consider a night out in the Gaslamp Quarter during Halloween weekend. With plenty of nightclubs and an outdoor street event, there will surely be no shortage of evening entertainment. And for those who are looking for savings during their trip, try to travel around the upcoming fall holidays. Hotel rates often go up during this time and you won’t be able to get as much bang for your buck!
While you might not be able to sunbathe or surf in October, staying at one of the hotels near San Diego beaches can provide you with countless options for entertainment. Beach communities are often near a variety of restaurants, which during the fall will still offer stunning views of the Pacific and the coast. Want to check out all the San Diego restaurants but don’t want to spend a fortune? Go during happy hour! With the sheer amount of restaurants competing for your business, almost all offer an unbelievable happy hour menu which can satisfy your vacation food and beverage cravings.
Finally, it’s all about the timing of your reservations. If you have set travel dates, it’s always best to book as far in advance as possible. This will help lock in the lowest rates and will most likely provide you with your preferred flight, hotel and room accommodations. However, some hotels also offer last minute deals as they’re trying to reach capacity during San Diego’s “off season.” If you have a flexible schedule, consider waiting until the last minute to book your hotel reservations, you might be able to enjoy even lower savings.
For visitors who are in search of a hotel that offers great value, the Marina Inn is the ideal option. As an affordable downtown San Diego hotel, we offer discounted accommodations year round and have clean and spacious rooms and suites, providing you with plenty of room to spread out and relax. Don’t let this deal pass you up and contact a Reservation Manager today.
