This hotel is located right on the beach, it's super close to mission beach, restaurants, and stores. Not only that but it's super affordable! I loved our stay here and I will definetly come back. It's comfortable, clean and convenient.

You can simply take bus and trolley to stadium from the hotel. It should take about 30-45 minutes travel time. Trolley will drop you off in Qualcomm Stadium. Trolley runs every 15 minutes in game days.
