Thanks again to all, I think with these suggestions we will be able to figure out what to do. I have learned that the San Sebastian film festival is going on during our dates, so the rates at many of the better choices have spiked, and availability is scarcer than in other times. But we can't really adjust the dates, so we may stay in one of the neighboring towns if we can't find what we want in SS.

ribeirasacra - No problem, sometimes comments in writing don't come across as intended. Maybe when we decide where we will be, you can visit and buy me a drink, or I can buy you one. ;-)

Hi PB,

We enjoyed our stay at http://www.hotelzaragozaplaza.com/ in San Sebastian. Ask for a room with a balcony facing the plaza.

It is much better than its star rating would suggest.

Enjoy your visit.

Zaragoza Plaza is in the absolute best location, 100 meters from the beautiful La Concha beach promenade and five minutes walking from the Parte vieja/Old town.

I spent a few days at Hotel de la Plage in St. Jean de Luz. Beachfront, nice enough, rooms begin at 89euro, rising from there depending on season and room type.

We had a simple and clean room with terrace for what seemed like a very good price/value ratio a few years ago.

We stayed in Hotel Obispo in Hondarribia;we found it in Maribel's Guides. It is a nice spot, lovely people working there with exceptional breakfasts including crepes.Be aware that the San Sebastian airport is within view, on the riverside.We saw flights coming in during the day but were not disturbed at night. Parking is limited, not enough spaces for all guests, however we always were able to find a spot. We enjoyed Hondarribia and were able to explore both the Spanish and French Basque region easily from this base.
St-Jean de Luz is very appealing as are the charming villages a short distance away up in the foothills such as Sare, Ainhoa, Ascain, Espellette. Enjoy that beautiful,part of the world, one of our favorite trips.
