PLNU's preferred hotels provide a discounted rate to PLNU family and friends and also return 10 percent of their profits back to PLNU's University Fund for student scholarships. Make reservations early as hotel rates are based on availability and subject to a room tax. To guarantee a special rate, each guest must ask for the Point Loma Nazarene University rate at the time the reservation is made. Some black-out dates may apply. Some hotels offer free parking and others require a "self-parking" fee. Please inquire at the time of reservation if this fee is applicable. All rates are guaranteed until December 31, 2013.
