3-Star Hotels in San Diego

If Goldilocks was searching for the perfect place to stay, she’d choose a 3-star hotel. These hotels are not too fancy, not too basic, but just right. They’re the ideal middle ground for suiting your travel needs when you don’t want too much—or too little.

The Just Right Hotel

Put Goldilock’s “just right” theory to use on your next trip and stay at one of the 3-star hotels in San Diego. These hotels may not roll out the red carpet upon your arrival, but you can expect more luxuries than a simple bed and bathroom. So what are 3-star hotels like in San Diego?

First off, you’ll find spacious rooms with convenient amenities, like Wi-Fi access and business areas. The best 3-star hotels even feature swimming pools and fitness centers, so you can burn off some energy before exploring the city. What’s more, many 3-star hotels are located near expressways and top attractions to keep you near the center of all the action.

Just Right Prices

The hotel amenities at a 3-star hotel near San Diego aren’t the only things you’ll find just right. You can score ridiculously good deals on 3-star hotels, where you’ll get way more bang for your buck. Filter hotels by:

  • Hotwire Hot Rate: Take a Hotwire Hot Rate for a whirl—you’ll like what you see! You can score an incredible deal, but you won’t find out the name of your hotel until after you book.

  • Price: Let’s see how low you can go - rooms start at $92.

  • Amenities: Looking for more than basic but less than luxury? Choose hotels with the amenities that match your preferences.

When you know what you want, it’s OK to be a little picky. Skip the luxury pads and ignore the motels—a 3-star hotel has your name on it. Save even more on your 3-star accommodation with our Hotwire Hot Rates.
