5 North County Hotels Available For Valentine’s Day

North County San Diego Hotels: Valentines Day

If you left your Valentine’s Weekend planning until the last-minute and were hoping to still get into a hotel for a romantic night out—luck won’t need to be on your side..

1. CAPE REY CARLSBAD, A HILTON RESORT

This year, rates are remarkably less than last year for spending the night on Feb. 14. Cape Rey has a variety of room types (with or without views, partial views, sofas, etc) for adjustable rates and I found rates starting at $127/night before taxes and fees on Expedia. However,  If you’re looking to create an unforgettable experience, head straight to the hotel’s website and check out their “Rise & Relax: Couple’s Retreat” package. In addition to a night’s accommodation, you stay will also include breakfast in bed with an inform full American breakfast for two, 50-minute couples massage, champagne toast at the spa, valet parking and resort fee starting at $369/night before taxes and fees.

Treat yourself to a country escape at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe.

If your dates are flexible, consider staying on Sunday Feb. 12 to bring the rate down to $161/night or if you must stay on the weekend, rooms started at $224/night (Feb 10, 11, and 17).

If you are looking for a deal with your ocean breeze, you can still cash in on the “Winter17” rate to knock off 15% on top of the already lowered rates. I found rooms Feb. 14 starting at $149/night. Breakfast steps away from your room at the Daily News was only a $12/person addition. Note: Sadly, the speakeasy called the Charles Kenneth is currently closed.
