What is the best way to get to this hotel from the airport?
Uber for sure! Parking is complicated and once you're there everything on the island is within walking distance. Last time I was there our Uber from downtown San Diego to the hotel was $10
Round trip with Uber was less than $30
We had a car and drove there, use Uber or city bus from airport with a transfer are good options as well. Once there,lots of options within walking for food.
