Details: Many of these hotel deals have blackout dates and a limited number of rooms at low prices, which means shop early for the widest selection.

There’s no way to test these deals before sales begin. But I did check online and found prices for midweek stays in January starting at $289 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, $249 at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego and $169 at the Lodge at Tiburon.
