Welcome To The San Diego County Lodging Association

The San Diego County Lodging Association is a federation of hotel and motel owners and operators representing approximately 20,000 rooms in lodging establishments throughout the county. Members range from small family-owned properties to major convention hotels.  The Association also represents allied member businesses that are affiliated with the San Diego visitor industry.

The mission of the San Diego County Lodging Association is to serve the needs of our members with resources and communication on education, technology, human relations and other industry issues; and to provide advocacy and representation on legislative and regulatory issues at all levels of government.

The Association also represents the viewpoints of the lodging industry to the public through a positive public relations campaign focusing on the local news media.
