The good thing about the San Diego International Airport (otherwise known as Lindbergh Field) is that it's located just minutes from the shopping, attractions and restaurants of downtown as well as a number of convenient hotels. All but two on this list offer a free shuttle service to and from the airport. And, you don't really need a car because between short taxi rides to the Gaslamp Quarter and the seasonal Big Bay Shuttle that stops in front of or near some of these hotels.
Families who need separate bedrooms will enjoy the all-suite Homewood Suites also conveniently located near the shops and restaurants of Liberty station. The value for money here is incredible given the complimentary amenities and room size.
Craving the convenience of a big hotel? Opt for the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina, number one on this list. The wide variety of offerings from wine happy hours to night time paddleboarding suit a range of travelers. Fine dining, a sports bar and kids menus feed hungry travelers, too.
Singles and those craving a hip, retro vibe will prefer The Pearl Hotel, an excellent value in Point Loma with craft cocktails and tasty eats.
Another perk? None of these hotels will (usually) break the bank. In fact, some are the best bargains in town. Without further ado, here are the best hotels in San Diego near the airport.
