Good afternoon all,
I'm looking for a San Diego area hotel, preferably south side / San Ysidro area, that also has EV charging on site (or nearby), to stay the night of Sunday July 7th when I get to the end of BC2BC. Any locals with a suggestion? This is for a Roadster. I'll have J and 14-50 cables, and I can also plan ahead and pick up enough charge earlier in the day, to return to Tesla San Diego on Monday morning to actually charge for my Monday the 8th travels (in which case, any hotel / motel will work - sleeping in the car isn't in the cards for me!)
As I'll be traveling for most of 3 weeks and staying in hotels, keeping the hotel bill reasonable
As I put together my plan for BC2BC, one point that has me stuck is figuring out where I'm going to stay Sunday night, July 7th. I am hoping that I can get some suggestions of good places to stay from somebody local or who knows the San Diego area (I don't know it at all).
The constraints that I know of - I'll be leaving from San Luis Obispo around 9-10am on Sunday morning of the 7th, and I plan to get to San Ysidro and the conclusion of BC2BC that day. My rough math right now has that as 367 miles, with a lot of that being in day time Sunday LA and San Diego traffic. Is that something to be worried about? Driving a Roadster, I figure there will be about 4-5 hours of charging mixed into 6 or 7 hours of driving, and another hour of futzing about - it's going to be a long day.
Anyway - that end of things can work out. I can skip a few of the Tesla stores to save some time and miles (but not all - I'll be using them as charging resources).
The part I'm looking for a suggestion on - I'll arrive in San Ysidro sometime later in the day on Sunday the 7th, cross the finish line, and then what? Ideally, there's a reasonably priced hotel nearby with EV charging that I would be comfortable parking the Roadster at overnight. If you have any suggestions, please share.
For that particular night, I'm also thinking of a lazy start to Monday, with a short drive to Tesla San Diego, and using the high speed charger there for the overnight charge. Get's me a late start on the day, but that also creates some additional flexibility.
Thanks for the help!
