    • Coronado Ferry to mainland for touring?

      San Diego Dec 23, 2016 at 12:17 PM

      Two young seniors spending 4 days in San Diego in February and staying on Coronado. Will have a car. Is it advisable to take the ferry back and forth to see (walk/ taxi) some of the mainland sites? Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, perhaps, Balboa Park (Zoo), etc.? How about if we want dinner on the mainland? Or should we drive to most places? Itinerary not set yet.
      Thanks.

    • Specific Location

      Los Angeles Jan 6, 2017 at 6:48 AM

      Hi. I posted another question about where to stay but am now more specific with areas. We will be going to Universal one day, Warner Brothers tour, doing things near Hollywood Blvd area, and then exploring other tourist things.

      Which area/hotel is better...near Universal City (Studio City hotel) or Hollywood Blvd (Hollywood Celebrity hotel), near but off Hollywood Blvd a bit (Days Inn) or Thai Town (Dixie Hotel)? We will have a car but am thinking one of those.
      Have narrowed it down to one of those based on budget and not being too far from Universal and Hollywood Blvd area. We have Hollywood Celebrity booked (but we can cancel).

    • Where to Stay?

      Los Angeles Jan 2, 2017 at 5:45 AM

      We'll be coming to Los Angeles in the summer with our kids and will have 4 days to do touristy things (Hollywood walk of fame and Hollywood Blvd area, Universal Studios, Warner Brother's Tour, Santa Monica Pier, La Brae Tar Pits, etc).

      I'm having trouble deciding on a hotel. We are on a budget since we'll need to keep money for LA plus 4 days at Disney. Anyone stayed at Days Inn near Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood Celebrity, Comfort Inn...or hotels in Thai Town such as Dixie Hotel, Hollywood City Inn? We will most likely be renting a car for our LA days.

      Hi there, i'm traveling to Orange for work and staying at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel in Anaheim until Friday. i have booked a room in Huntington Beach solo Friday night-Sunday AM (will be flying out Sunday from John Wayne) I unfortunately am one year shy of being of age to rent a car and will need to find a economical and semi-easy way of getting to HB from my hotel or somewhere nearby. Any suggestions would help!

      Also, how early would you suggest I leave HB on Sunday to make an 11 AM flight out of John Wayne?

      I've read about the RV camping site at Huntington Beach. Is it a pleasant place or do you get the feeling that you camp in the parking site of a mall?
      Can anyone recommend a camping site in the greater Los Angeles area, that is within walking distance from the sea?
      Thanks,

      Hostel?

      by yozza2005 Online Now Aug 9, 2008 at 8:12 AM

      Hey,
      I've tried google-ing 'Huntington Hostel' and i've found a place called
      Colonial Inn Youth Hostel Hotel
      However, looking through the various hostel sites, i can't find it.
      It's site does not load either.
      Is this hostel still open?

      If not, can anyone recommend a 'cheap' place to stay in the area for two nights.
      I'll be hitting the area in early September.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Beach question

      by bedenji Online Now Mar 25, 2007 at 7:25 PM

      Hi- some girlfriends and I are hoping to visit the area in mid-June. We have our hearts set on spending some great time on the beach, and are just unsure of our best options. We are thinking of staying at the Hilton Beachfront, which would be very expensive but right on the beach (I think). Our other option would be to stay at an inland (i.e. cheaper) hotel and drive to the beach, but don't know what the public beach options are. Are there public beaches that offer chair rentals? Does anyone have any other tips?

      Thanks!

      way to get from LAX to Huntington Beach

      by va8eha Online Now Oct 20, 2006 at 10:29 PM

      Hi, all.

      Question .. I am heading to Huntington Beach for the marathon in Feb and will be flying into the L.A. airport. I'd like to avoid renting a car if possible, since I'd only need it to get to and from the airport.

      Is there is a bus route or similar from the airport to HB? Or if not, how much can I expect to pay for a taxi ride?

      thanks! --Elizabeth

      Going to Huntington Beach next month and we are looking for a beachfront hotel/motel for under100 a night. I've seen a few advertised, but we want somewhere safe and clean (no roaches!). Can someone give a recommendation on any of these or someone I've not listed: Huntington Surf Inn Huntington Beach Inn Surf & Sands motel Beach Comfort Motel Best Western Huntington Beach (looks the nicest out of those I've listed, but also the most expensive).
