    We are spending a few days in the San Diego/ Carlsbad/ La Jolla area and would love to stay near the ocean, if it's not too expensive. Any suggestions for good places to try? Thanks!

    In case anyone is wondering, I throughly researched this and found a great place on Pacific Beach near Crystal Pier. It's called Capri by the Sea and it's an old apartment building right on the beach that's been renovated into individual condominiums to book like a hotel. We got a great sale price and I'm super excited about it! Each room has a full wall of windows overlooking the ocean and a small walk out balcony. It has a full kitchen and is a short walk to many restaurants, groceries, etc. The reviews on it are excellent, so if you're looking for a unique place to stay right on the beach, check it out!!

    We stayed at the Hyatt Mission Bay. It's not too far from Mission Beach and convenient to Sea World if it's in your plans. They also have a great pool with 3 water slides and a fire pit for making smores if you have kids.

    We stayed at the Hyatt Mission Beach. Cool pool with water slides for kids, within walking distance of Sea World and short drive to beach.

    We stayed at the Best Western Blue Sea this past summer. A bit dated, but good beds, mini kitchen. We loved it.

    That said, down below Grand Avenue, in a shopping center along the beach, is a restaurant called The Eggery. It was SO good.

    We stayed at the Grand Colonial last summer. They had a 3rd night free promotion. It was gorgeous and within walking distance to the Children's Pool, La Jolla Cove, Sunny Jim Cave, and a gazillion awesome restaurants. The swimming pool was a little small, but our kids had a great time there, even though it was rather cool in June.

    It is a small hotel and the staff could not have been more hospitable. We had my 81 year old mother with us and the valets offered to pick her up by the sea side in their gold cart so she wouldn't have to walk back up the steep hill. They were super kind to our kids as well.

    We are staying 2 nights in La Jolla - I chose the La Jolla Cove Suites. I found out it was on Hotel Impossible after I booked it. They were just underusing their outside area and had dated rooms. Gets mixed reviews, but Hotel Impossible went back and it looked good.

    Decided to stay there anyway. Has awesome views and I got the rooms for under $135.00 a night.
