I am visiting from the Texas/Oklahoma/New Mexico board. I am probably going to be coming to San Diego to bring my mother for medical treatment near Tijuana. Can anyone recommend an inexpensive, but safe hotel near the border? I will be traveling with my three kids as well, so anything kid-friendly nearby would help!<br><br>
Thanks so much!<br>

Not really sure... do you know where the clinic is?? What is your price range?? Do you have to stay down there or, better yet.. tell me how far you are willing (and able) to drive (in time... i.e. fifteen minutes at rush hour) to get where you need to be.<br><br>
Once I get this info, I'll do some sleuthing and find someplace for you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

The clinic is actually in Tijuana, but we had been told we'd be better off to stay in the US. How is Chula Vista? I thought I read that there was a LaQuinta there. Cheap is good; all the rooms look alike when your eyes are closed. I'm not picky, but I do want to be safe. I'm not sure what her schedule for treatment will be like. We've been told that she will need to be there twice a week for at least two weeks, so if there's a long-term (weekly) place, that might work well. This is kind of a sudden thing, so I'm feeling very overwhelmed. Thanks for your input!<br><br>

Will you have a car?? Public transit in san diego is sketchy at best.... but if you don't have a car, I'd suggest staying somewhere OTHER than down near the border and take the trolley (the most reliable public transit here).<br><br>
I'm looking in the mean time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> There *are* nice areas of Chula Vista, but there are also TERRIBLE areas and I've got to do some research <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Looks like there's a Best Western on San Ysidro blvd. just a couple of miles north of the border. It's about $70 a night (which is about as cheap as you'll find here)... if that's too sketchy for you, then I'd suggest looking at Mission Valley... tons of hotels (look for "hotel Circle") there's a marriott, super 8, everythign in between!!! And you can take the trolley from Fashion Valley or Mission Valley to Tijuana.<br><br>
LMK if you need more help!

Thank you for all the info! I really appreciate it! What can you tell me about the Holiday Inn Express in that area? Specifically the Holiday Inn Express at 4450 Main St, Chula Vista. Or the Best Western Americana Inn in San Ysidro.<br><br><br><br>
