Places to Stay
Information for out-of-town patients and visitors
If you are traveling for treatment, please confirm the location where you or your family member will be treated before booking your lodging.
Discounts at Bartell Hotels
All eight local Bartell Hotels extend preferred discounts to UC San Diego Health patients and their families, as well as professors, students, parents, alumni, family, friends and employees associated with UC San Diego. When you book and stay with Bartell Hotels, the company donates 10 percent of the total room cost back to UC San Diego Health Family Houses, which provide affordable and comfortable lodging for the out-of-town families of patients undergoing long-term care for serious illness.
Family Houses at UC San Diego Health
Families of patients undergoing long-term care at UC San Diego may be eligible to stay in our Family Houses in Hillcrest and La Jolla. For a referral to Family Houses, talk to the patient's social worker.
Several hotels and motels offer special rates for UC San Diego Health patients. We recommend asking for a UC San Diego Health rate when you book your room. Note that you may need to call the hotel's local San Diego number; reservation agents at toll-free numbers may not be aware of special rates.
