Questions of a Backpacker

by haydnesque

Hi guys I need you help. I hope some of you can answer my quesitons:

1. How may hours would it take to travel to LA by bus/train (if any)?
2. How much would it cost?
3. Any suggestions for a cheap accomodation in San Diego?

Thank you!

Benjamin

My choice would be the train because you're not subject to LA traffic. It's also relatively cheap ($30 or so).
If you're backpacking, you should look into the hostels. There are two right in Downtown San Diego, as well as a couple of others near the beach.

Which hostel you choose depends on what you want to do in San Diego and what your ideal accommodations are ("party" hostels versus quieter ones).
Hotels in San Diego are typically $60-75 minimum. La Pensione, 500 West, Hotel Occidental and the Dolphin are all about the best you'll get for your money. The Dolphin, though, is in Point Loma and separated from most public transit (there's one bus) and attractions.

From LV it will take about 2 hours and 20 mins to get to S.D. If you like to surf, there are a few spots, in La Jolla that you may want to look into. A train ride from LA to SD is around 28.00 one way, if you prepay, if you pay on the train, it will cost you about 40.00 one way, so it's worth it to call ahead. Try the web site below, it's a pretty good one, with lots of hotels for you to look into

We like Old Town there are good motels there for good values like the courtyard by Marriot - Try priceline or Hotwire you can get rooms in Nearby Mission Valley for less than 100 per night no problem and it's on the trolly line...And make Sure you go to the Old Town Cafe for the best Mexican Breakfast around- YUM !

I've stayed at the Old Town twice, it's very close to Old Town and very close to a trolley stop. I paid under $100 both times I stayed there, they do have larger rooms for families and include a pretty decent breakfast. I have a write up of it on my San Diego page, there are quite a few reviews on Trip Advisor as well

PS If you want all four adults in the same room, do not use Priceline, they will only guarantee space for 2 people. On Hotwire you can specify 4 people and get a room for 4 people but you don't know what hotel you get until you have paid for the room. www.betterbidding.com is a good resource for Hotwire, www.biddingfortravel.com is a good resource for Priceline.

Re: Budget Family Accommodation in Heart of San Diego

There aren't many hotels that fall into this. San Diego is very popular for tourists and, thus, any hotels in the tourist areas (Downtown/Gaslamp, particularly) are going to be fairly expensive. You could stay a bit out of the city (what I usually do), but the public transit is not necessarily as good.
Old Town Inn would be my first suggestion, too. It's nearly always under $100/night, safe, clean and you can walk to the Old Town restaurants and the bars and restaurants in Little Italy from there.
You could also look at the Hotel Occidental. There's also a Motel 6 in Downtown San Diego that fits your criteria.
Don't expect a lot from these places though. You don't get much near Downtown San Diego for under $100.

Thanks for the suggestion. What if I increase the budget to say $150 per night. Would like to stay in down town.

Any advice ?
