Hotel Circle

by nino224

I've found some good rates for hotels in Hotel Circle. Now I'm just wondering if it's a safe area at night and if we'll be able to move around easily by trolley and public transpo. Nightlife?

Re: Hotel Circle

by HarmoniousBotch

Yes, Hotel Circle is a safe area. But like most of San Diego, it is built for cars. Public transportation here is not good.

I don't know about the trolley, but with the buses, keep your receipt. If you have it you can get back on a bus later - through a certain time period (although I found that the bus drivers allow it to go longer).

I would really like to take the ghost walk they have in old town. When are you going?

Re: Hotel Circle

by bocmaxima

The trolley line is relatively close to Hotel Circle, but across a freeway and a river. There aren't a ton of bridges across that river or the freeway and the area is far from pedestrian-friendly. So accessing the trolley really depends on, specifically, which hotel you're looking at: some are walkable, some are not.

.....and the main nightlife is in the Gas Lamp District Downtown. Once there you can walk around to the many many clubs and restaurants. It really is the place to be for nightlife. Enjoy.

You guys just saved me a lot of grief. I need an area where I can walk around with my 4 y.o. for short distances from the hotel to restaurants, buses and trolleys. The Circle doesn't sound like that. It's probably best if I stay in Old Town.

p.s. Ghost tour?? No way! With my luck those ghosts will follow me back home to Florida!!

Hotel Circle is a safe enough place. The SD Trolley station is located on the northern side of the Circle and in between is a major freeway, Interstate 8, there are underpasses that you could use to walk from one side to the other if your hotel is located on the south side and you want to walk it.

However if your hotel is located on the south side there are bus stops at convenient intervals and those buses will take you to the SD Trolley station--as well as other areas, such as Mission Valley shopping mall.

Hotel Circle is full of restaruants, bars, lounges and places for dancing. Some of these places are independent of any hotel and others are part of some of the larger hotels, but open to the public in general. You will find anything from fast food to fine dining here and various types of "watering holes" to suit almost any style that you may have.

I have a travelouge on my San Diego page that may give you a better idea of the set-up at Hotel Circle, but it is not a "complete" view. There are many more hotels and restaruants than I have shown.

Stay in downtown if you want to move around freely.

Travel Tips for San Diego

8 Hours Drive from San Francisco

by vigi

Apr4, whole day driving. Depart 10am from San Francisco, driving along freeway #5 arriving San Diego just before sunset. Slightly more than 8 hours, I think. We didn't even stop over in LA., only a short lunch break at "In & Out Burger" and 2 more short rest as I remembered. Passing through LA was a hassle, so much traffic. I could not imgaine "Stop & go" in freeway before visiting the States!

Visit Cardiff by the Sea and...

by pargolfer

Visit Cardiff by the Sea and enjoy a Lobster dinner and bottle of California Chardonnay while the ocean crashes in below you. The weather here is fabulous. The ocean keeps the temp at about 70-80 degrees inland and 60-70 degrees on the coast. The golf couses are spectacular from Torrey Pines to Singing Hills.

Alright, First, you have to do...

by skreno

Alright, First, you have to do this on July 4th, no other day will do.

Also before you do this, you have to cross the border into T.J. (Tijuana,Mexico for those of you outside the US). While wearing baggy pants buy up all the fireworks you can hide on you (the mexican salesman will be happy to tape bottle rockets to your legs), and smuggle them back over the border.

Now, go back to San Diego- Ocean Beach to be exact, go buy lots of alcohol, and then go attach yourself to one of the large bonfire parties on the beach and wait for the sun to go down. (Here's where the fireworks come in). All you have to do is ask if anyone would like some of your fireworks and I guarantee you will have 20 instant buddies, because let's face it, everyone loves things that explode!
(And don't worry, you won't be the only one with fireworks. Half of the beach was in T.J. earlier that day doing the same thing).
After you've lit 'em all, sit back and watch the professionals light there's off. To the left, they shoot 'em off the pier & to the right, they shoot them off from Seaworld.
After that's done, you can either keep partying on the beach or follow the hoards of people into the neighborhood where there is at least a few parties on each block!
***Bonus - you won't even have to get a hotel room for the night, because you can crash on someone's couch. :)

Disclaimer: It is illegal to transport fireworks from mexico to the US. While they'll probably just take them away from you and make you sign a release form if you get caught, I in no way incourage this kind of illegal activity. I'm just telling you what you could do and what 1000's of San Diegans do every year. :)

The Saturday preceeding Halloween (if it falls on a weekday) is the best time to see everyone downtown dressed up in costume. This year we went to the Monster Bash in the Gaslamp. I went as a Gypsy and my friend Alma took on a turn of the century/masqurade costume.

unless you're downtown or in...

by skreno

unless you're downtown or in La Jolla, never wear more than a t-shirt and shorts (shoes optional). Most people (in the beach towns anyway), consist of hippies,skaters,punks,and musicians of all kinds. The last thing they want to see is something to remind them that they are having too much fun and need to grow up.(i'm kidding)
