    You can simply take bus and trolley to stadium from the hotel. It should take about 30-45 minutes travel time. Trolley will drop you off in Qualcomm Stadium. Trolley runs every 15 minutes in game days.

    We have some beach equipment that guests have left here in the past. It is first-come, first-served. However, there are also places within a close walking distance that rent these items as well.
