solana beach is not in san diego. it is about 20 minutes north of the city. nice little town but, the train goes through there so i'd ask your hotel if it's noisy. pizza port - great pizza there.

I keep seeing posts that La Jolla is not San Diego and Solana Beach is not San Diego, etc. For what it's worth, coastal San Diego is considered to be from the Mexican Border north to Orange County. There are many different sections of it like Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, La Jolla, Del Mar, Solana Beach, and more. But it is all greater San Diego. Heather - Solana Beach is a very nice rather funky beach town just north of Del Mar. Yes, you are a about 20 minutes from downtown San Diego. I am not familiar with your hotel but Courtyards are generally good moderately price places to stay.

Heather,
I worked in Solana Beach and know exactly where that hotel is. My brother-in-law has stayed there several times for business. It's fine. There is a good Italian restaurant next door. It's about a 5 min drive to Del Mar which has beautiful beaches, great resaurants and shopping.

Sandy, when people come to visit San Diego, they think they're coming to the city of San Diego, not a smaller town in the county of San Diego. xxx is quite correct. It's only fair to clarify when it seems there is come confusion. It is not all "greater" San Diego. That would imply that all the people in San Diego county pay taxes to the city, which they don't. It is all San Diego county, though.

Barbara - with all due respect, I disagree. Let's take a trip to New York for example. I may say that I am going to New York when I am really going to Brooklyn or New Rochelle, or Queens. Miami is another area where you may say you are visiting Miami when you are really going to Pompano Beach. As for San Diego, when someone says they are looking for moderate hotels, you may recommend Hotel Circle. That, of course, is in Mission Valley and not downtown San Diego. People recommend the Hotel Del Coronado all of the time which is an island and city all to itself. So when someone posts San Diego, I cannot agree that they think they are coming to the city of San Diego. Of course, this is really not an important issue and may be just a point a view.

Sandy, if you went to Brooklyn or Queens, you would, indeed, be in New York City. Mission Valley is an area of San Diego City. Nobody ever says the Hotel Del Coronado is in San Diego, its name tells you where it is. I also don't know anyone who actually lives in Solana Beach or Encinitas or Escondido or any of the other small towns and cities in San Diego County who would tell you they live in San Diego. For the purposes of this board, I think it's very important to be accurate.

Good point, Barbara ... Sandy, I lived in National City for years -- 'bout as close to San Diego as you can get without having a San Diego mailing address. I NEVER said I was from San Diego -- but always that I lived "just outside San Diego." The original poster is confused (and probably will be disappointed) if she thinks she's gonna stay at the Solana Beach Courtyard in San Diego.
