Today the route pulled away from the coast and I just motored for a while. I went through some nice coastal areas like San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara.
I got to experience Los Angeles traffic for the first time. At one point it was 14 lanes (7 each direction). It was a bit nuts even though I went into it around 3:30pm. Being on a motorcycle makes it a bit more stressful and I was dressed for moving at 70 mph NOT 2 MPH. There were ...
... for lunch, and eat some pastries for breakfast. They even had fresh cakes to take out.
We drove down to the coves and found a small cove to sit. The steps down were quite close to the sea and we were not quite sure if the tide was coming in or out. We sat for a while until the stairs were getting wet. Max thought it best we leave. The tide was definitely coming in. We made a quick dash for the stairs.Further up the hill was ...
... earlier and we got enough questions then!!Turns out we were in some national park and because we were so close to Mexico everyone was s a bloody Mexican and didn't understand us asking them how do we get back to San Diego city. We found our way eventually and have learnt we should probably always drive with a map. The adventures we find ourselves in are quite amusing. Sadly the honeymoon is almost over :( San Diego and the second part or LA to go M&S ...
... to cook a meal for everyone again ! We grabbed a burrito. Took it down to the beach. After finishing the burrito we decided that we'd get surfboards. And try surfing. We hired some out. And spent the next 4 hours in the surf. It was awesome ! However !!! We both found it incredibly difficult to get out ! Ha. It was so hard. We'd get out a little bit. A big wave would come and push us back towards shore what we just paddled. This battle ...
... and had a look, also had our first ice cream of the tour. Tonight after the show we meet up with some salvationists. One of them was Steve Yalden who used to be in the Coldstream Guards and played percussion in the ISB. We went to a bar called the Shakespeare, was really nice evening chatting to them all about the differences between the Salvation Army and there times in the Guards & U.S ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, San Diego North
Worked out just fine
business oriented hotel but my two kids enjoyed their time here. free breakfast, rooms were nice and clean, pool was OK. Location was fine, 10 minutes or so to the zoo, la jolla or sea world. go east on mira mesa and you will find lots of restauranst & malls five minutes away
We got a great room through Priceline. Comfortable beds with lots of pillows, quiet.
The pool was kind of cold. The lobby and other public areas are classy. Parking is free.
It's pretty far from downtown, and even Carlsbad.
Manager with an Attitude
Booked a single room with two queen beds for three through Hotels. When checking in, was told only a queen bed was available. Party of three in front of me also told only a single queen bed was available. Couple behind us was told that no rooms were available.
Manager of the property rudely said..." that was just the way it was. If you book through a third party all the hotel is is obligated to do is provide you a room. If you have a problem get in touch with the company that you booked the room through."
Will never stay in their properties again regardless of price!
Free Internet access and parking!
Wow! Stayed here one night on a 10 night sightseeing vacation in Southern California over the holidays in December 2004. Our family moved around a number of hotels in L.A. and San Diego, including Hilton, Hyatt, Marriot, Doubletree, Westin, and Holiday Inn. All others charged extra for parking and internet access. Not here! Plus free water, the rooms are just as clean and comfortable and there are three, count 'em, 3 chairs in the room, not just 1 or two, and the desk chair is an actual office chair. The only complaint my wife has is poor lighting, offset by 4 sets of towels. One other plus is that this location is in a nice quiet area removed from the freeway. Overall grade, the best of this vacation, 5 stars in my book.
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel, while we were going to Sea World. The hotel is very clean. I wouldn't call it a family hotel, but it was very relaxing for a couple. The rooms are not a typical hotel room. They have this big ol desk and office chair, and a big oversized mushy chair.
Stayed for 5 nights (8/14-8/19), purchased the 5 days 3-for-1 pass to SeaWorld, SDZoo, and Wild Animal Park. Average 3-star hotel conveniently located in a bio-tech business park just off the I-805 freeway which provided easy access to all 3 parks (did not run into traffic jams). Quiet at night. There is a Chilli's restaurant across the hotel parking lot and a MacDonalds', food court, gas station 1 block away. A Von's grocery store, Target, Mervyn's and many other fast food restaurants (Carl's Jr, Del Taco) and other restaurants (Red Lobster, Black Angus) are down the road (Mira Mesa Blvd).
I stayed here for business last Friday night. The room was great: king-size comfortable bed, cushy chair with ottomon, tv that swiveled (watch it anywhere), large L-shaped desk/dresser combo, padded bench, and large mirror. Plenty of towels, glasses, & soaps, etc. Alarm clock, coffeemaker w/coffee, iron/board, hairdryer, and bottled water in room. The decor was nice, very classy. No noise. Staff was nice, fast & competent. There is a restaurant & a bar/lounge downstairs, and a Chili's across the parking lot. All this and a good rate too, highly recommended.
Out of town value
Picked up this room on hotwire for $55 a night.
Nice room with a comfy reading chair. It rained during our vacation and the man at the desk was nice enough to find us directions to a ChuckECheese as our children were going stir crazy. We discovered the Mira Mesa area has shopping and eateries just a few blocks away and is inbetween the 805 and 15 freeways. If you have a car and want a nice room in the San Diego area at a reasonable price, this is it.
The hotel is beautiful, the room is VERY comfortable and the staff was friendly. We were especially happy with it since we got it through Hotwire for less than 1/2 of the rate Wyndham wanted through its' regular web site. The hotel was wonderful at any price, but especially satisfying due to the low room rate we got. I would stay again.
Stayed two days March 2004.
Positive: 7 stories, very quiet rooms, great breakfast, very businessperson oriented, clean, free parking, helpful and pleasant staff, good if you have a generous expense account.
Negative: Wrong billing-twice, pricy, $10 per day for high speed Internet, in a business/industrial area so services are distant.
