Best San Diego Hotels for Families

Updated on November 11, 2010

San Diego can be a great vacation destination for families. Choosing a hotel that will cater to your family’s needs can make your trip particularly special. San Diego offers plenty of activities for families, including its famous zoo. After a long day of sightseeing, coming back to a comfortable home away from home can give you so much needed rest and relaxation. San Diego hosts many vacationing families each year, and hotels in San Diego are used to catering to families with children. Here are the top San Diego hotels for families.

Harbor Vacations Club

This is a hotel on a yacht, or “floating home” in San Francisco Bay. If you are looking for a unique and memorable place to stay, you can’t beat this option! This hotel offers two staterooms that are connected as well as full kitchens, washers and dryers, showers, outdoor verandas, and decks for you and your family to relax on. This hotel is practically a vacation destination in itself.

Residence Inn San Diego Downtown

If you are looking for the conveniences of home amidst the busy activities of downtown San Diego, this hotel is a great choice. It offers one bedroom suites that sleep 3 or two bedroom suites that sleep 5. Regardless of the size of the suite you choose, they all have fully stocked kitchens to give you the option of cooking your meals in the hotel if you wish. The hotel also offers complimentary breakfasts and grocery shopping service to make meals more convenient. An outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi will help your family relax too.

Holiday Inn on the Bay

This is a great choice if you and your family plan on spending time in the bay. An outdoor swimming pool gives you options for exercise. Rooms sleep 4 (with crib or rollaway beds available by request for larger families) and the hotel offers a full service restaurant for you to enjoy at the end of a busy day. This is also a helpful option for your budget, as kids under 12 eat free with a paying adult. There is a free shuttle that takes hotel guests to the Seaport Village and San Diego Zoo, and bike rentals are also available.

Embassy Suites Hotel San Diego Bay

This hotel can comfortably accommodate larger families, as the one bedroom suites sleep 4 and the two bedroom suites sleep 6. Your meals are convenient at this hotel, with refrigerators and microwaves in the suites as well as complimentary breakfast. A coin operated washer and dryer are available, as well as cribs and high chairs for those traveling with very small children.
