Our family (2a/2c) are planning on a 3 night stay in San Diego. At this stage we know that we want to visit San Diego Zoo/Balboa Park area. We will also do a trolley tour of the main San Diego sites. We are unsure yet if we will go to SeaWorld. We are planning on flying in from San Diego and picking up a rental (if we need to).
Based on us wanting to go to the San Diego Zoo which part of San Diego should we stay in? Our budget is around $150-175 per night which hopefully willl include a complimentary breakfast to keep costs down.
Hotel recommendations would also be appreciated. We have already looked at the Old Mission Inn (?) and that seems OK for the four (4) of us.
