          How easy would it be to get to qualcomm stadium to see a game without a car?

          Answer Show all 2 answers
          Response from Umit C | Property representative |
          You can simply take bus and trolley to stadium from the hotel. It should take about 30-45 minutes travel time. Trolley will drop you off in Qualcomm Stadium. Trolley runs every 15 minutes in game days.

          Is there a place to rent umbrellas and chairs for sitting on the beach?

          We have some beach equipment that guests have left here in the past. It is first-come, first-served. However, there are also places within a close walking distance that rent these items as well.

          I am bringing my 16 and 17 year old daughter and son to California to enjoy the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, a few days at the beach on the Pacific Ocean, and possibly a day trip to Tijuana. Would the Surfer Beach Hotel be fairly convenient for our entire stay or really only for the beach portion? I prefer staying at one location during a trip. Please let me know.
