... not exist in Australia. We met plenty of extremely friendly and interesting people at the tournament, and had a traditional American BBQ with them. Sunday we finally got to see the famous San Diego zoo, which was a lot of fun! Monday we went to Tijuana, Mexico, and the next day flew to Flagstaff, ...

The characters of San Diego

... pretty dangerous and definitely didn't seem like it was under control at all. The smoke was everywhere too which was as dark as you can imagine. We stopped off for lunch at this old school train station that had a bunch of little shops and take away places including an entire stall dedicated to beef jerky. We then continued on to San Diego. As we got closer the traffic became more congested and palm trees became more common. At one point we were driving on the highway which ...

... we got a cheeky mani-pedi before having a delicious home cooked chilli for dinner. Our first tourist hotspot was Sea World and to be honest, at first we weren't sure if we wanted to go. A few weeks previously, we had watched a documentary called Blackfish which is all about the orcas in captivity at Sea World, in particular a male orca who was responsible for the death of a trainer in 2009. Since then, there have been multiple court cases and opposition to ...

... seriously successful guy. James put a bewildering amount of trust in me, in the sense that he left his key for me to help myself into his swanky apartment whilst he was in Vegas. It was a far cry from the hostels I’d be staying at and was quite a shock to begin with; for the first couple of hours I didn’t dare touch anything owing to the fact the place was full of expensive and rare looking items from all corners of the earth. Even ...

... in California. Very different than midwest Chinese.



On Wednesday, Jo and I hit the road to get to Mission Bay to ride the bike trail there. So different from the Illinois Prairie Path that I usually ride at home. It's entirely paved and along the bay; very different scenery, to say the least.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Balboa Park Inn San Diego

    The Jungle Nook was awesome!

    from

    My husband and I were more than satisfied with our lodging at the Balboa Park Inn (we had booked over the net). Turned out it's right across the street from the zoo and Balboa Park, so the location was great! We stayed in the jungle nook suite which was nicely decorated and perfect for comfort. Gorgeous bathroom with double shower and hot-tub. We WILL recommend it and return next time we're in San Diego. And friendly staff to boot!!!

    Great place to stay inSan Diego

    from

    Stayed three nights, and once you are able to relate the freeway grid to destinations within the San Diego area there's no problem getting about. We got a great welcome and help and advice were always on hand. It's a great idea to build around the courtyard and as a result it was quiet and secluded while being central at the same time. Our accommodation was fine (the Courtyard suite) and whilst a little quirky was very comfortable and had every amenity. We ate locally - a walk into Hillcrest is about twenty minutes or so and we had one of the best Italian meals ever there (Antico Toscana). Highly recommend the Balboa Park Inn on price and quality.

    Great Stay!

    from

    Really good value, great for families, and great location. We stayed with our 2 kids aged 4 1/2 and 12 months. They had a queen bed and a pull-out full sofa bed in our room with a full kitchen. They give a nice continental breakfast delivered to the room. We had breakfasts in the room, and even a dinner and were able to pack picnic lunches we prepared there. The room was decorated nicely. It had a nice private patio going into the courtyard. This hotel was obvously someone's dream. The location couldn't be beat.

    Always a pleasure

    from

    I have stayed at the Inn and will continue. I have had friends and family stay there as well. It is very Gay friendly and fortunately located close to Hillcrest, the park and zoo. Close to freeways and is a most beautiful inn. Every room is unique and "extremely" clean. The staff bends over backwards to make sure you are happy and comfortable. I love this place and so will you. The Orient Express room is one of my favorites with its elegance and just a touch of "campiness."

    A Great Find

    from

    Just returned from a weekend stay at the Balboa Park Inn and were really impressed. We chose this hotel because of the good things we read about it on Tripadvisor.com, and just wanted to return the favor and encourage others to try it out as well!

    A TRUE BARGAIN

    from

    I cannot rave enough about the Balboa Park Inn. The rooms are very comfortable, the continental breakfast is much more than you could possibly eat and the staff (Judy and Bick especially) is absolutely wonderful. The Balboa Park Inn is walking distance from the San Diego Zoo and the wonderful museums in Balboa Park. Also just a short taxi ride to the Hillcrest and Gaslamp Quarter.

    I will definitely be coming back to visit my new friends there!

    Fun place and location

    from

    The Balboa Park Inn is in a great location just across from the park and zoo. Also close to Hillcrest with lots of good places to eat. We found it to be quiet.

    We stayed in the Greystoke and enjoyed the kitschy Tarzan theme with lots of stuffed animals. The bathroom was amazing with a wetbar and large whirlpool tub. Very romantic! The room was very large and clean. A bit expensive at $200 per night but worth the splurge if you have a sense of humor and want something fun to hang around in.

    Oldie but a goodie

    from

    We have been staying at the Balboa Park Inn twice a year for the past five or six years. The Inn has a wide range of rooms with various themes, and we have stayed in most of them. Some rooms, the bathrooms in particular, need a little work. But it is walking distance from the park and it is in a quiet neighborhood. The breakfast is more than most people can eat in one sitting and many of the rooms have private or semi-private patios where you can enjoy a glass of wine as the day turns to evening

    Nice but noisy

    from

    The Inn was clean, friendly and in a great location. Parking was easy and we cold walk to the zoo and museums in ten minutes.

    The Inn's walls are VERY thin, and noise late at night and early in the morning kept us up.

    Continental breakfast was very nice.

    Had a great stay

    from

    Had a very good experience staying at the Balboa Park Inn. The buildings are old but well maintained. The room we stayed in was very clean, comfortable and quiet, even though on one morning there were hoards of people passing directly in front of the in the annual AIDS walk. Our room had a semi-private deck directly in front of its kitchen area that provided a pleasent place to enjoy breakfast. The front desk staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The location can't be beat. We were able to walk over to the zoo and the park museums. We were also only minutes away from the wonderful restaurants to be found on 5th and University Avenues. We plan to make this a regular spot for a relaxing weekend getaway.
