Labor Day is fast approaching, and if you plan to be in gorgeous San Diego for the weekend, there are still some affordable hotel rooms you can scoop up if you move quickly! Check out these hotels – they’re cheap(er), close to San Diego’s best sites and an overall good value. I wouldn’t recommend these hotels for super romantic getaways for couples, but they’re good choices for families and for couples on a budget.
This hotel is on Hotel Circle, an area that has tons of hotels near San Diego’s Mission Valley area. You’ll be less than 10 minutes from the beach with a car, and very close to some of San Diego’s best shopping, too. Rooms are clean and basic.
Cheesy name, but this is a nice, basic hotel with a staff that has a reputation for being friendly and helpful. Don’t judge this motel by its website, which needs some work. The rooms don’t have comforters, really, just white sheets – but this is San Diego people, rarely does it get below 65 degrees, and over Labor Day it’s likely to be in the 80s! The motel is located right on the Harbor.
Totally renovated in 2003, La Pensione is listed as San Diego’s best budget hotel by a number of sites. All the rooms have a Queen bed, and rates for Labor Day are $90/night. I got a total of $300 for 3 nights, which is fantastic for the holiday weekend! There are two restaurants and underground parking spaces, too. It’s very close to the San Diego airport.
Hope these hotels are a good starting point for you! Happy travels.
