The Best and Worst of San Diego


(page 10 of 11)

Best Hotel To Stash Out-of-Towners

Slip those visitors into the Bay Club Hotel & Marina on Shelter Island, not far from the Humphrey’s Concerts outdoor stage. Large rooms with balconies overlook San Diego Bay or the picturesque marina. The hotel has lots of amenities, including a full breakfast buffet. Rack rates start at $145, and special packages are offered. 2131 Shelter Island Drive, 619-224-8888.

Worst Shopping Center Parking Lot

What with Ralphs grocery store, Trader Joe’s and a collection of popular services and shops, the Uptown Center in Hillcrest (with main entrances at 10th Street and Cleveland Avenue) is one busy, busy place. We dare you to stop-and-go through its zigzag parking lot without getting seriously annoyed.

Worst Pothole

You’ll find it on any street that’s not in the immediate residential neighborhood of a city councilmember.

Best Off-Site Airport Parking

Pull into Laurel Travel Center, the last building the planes clear before they land at Lindbergh Field. It has covered, secure parking 24/7, with rates ranging from $16 a day for valet service to $10 for self-parking on the top (uncovered) floor. Those spaces, just 80 feet beneath incoming planes, fill up fast, says dispatcher Rick. Laurel Street at Kettner Boulevard, 619-233-0412.

Best Tourists

Pat Sajak and Vanna White—any time they choose to spin into San Diego. The host and hostess of Wheel of Fortune recently led the production crew of the world’s most popular game show to the San Diego Convention Center. Three weeks of taped shows were broadcast starting in late April. Thanks for the public relations boost for the city. Y’all come back, y’hear? Wheel of Fortune airs on NBC 7/39.
