THE Inn to stay at if you're going to the Zoo

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 8, 2006

Balboa Park Inn is technically close enough to the San Diego Zoo to walk there. (However, since parking is free, we went ahead and drove.) We were in the Aruba room, which had a jacuzzi tub. Very clean, very neat little place. I believe all the rooms are decorated differently. I was worried when they said breakfast was delivered to your room, as I though it would be sad little donuts, but to my delight, our pastries were quite good (the other option was cereal, which didn't seem that appetizing). Each morning we received two pieces of coffeee cake, two mini-croissants, two mini-muffins, and two pieces of breakfast bread, along with orange juice and milk. Parking is free, but it's on the street, and there were a few times when we had to walk a bit to get back.

Unique Quality: There is a great deck on the roof of one of the outbuildings. We didn't have a chance to use it, but there were lots of chairs and tables to just lounge and chat with companions. Very picturesque.

Directions: Just north of the San Diego Zoo on Park Blvd.
