What We Do Lodging


More than just lodging, we provide comfort in a family’s time of need.
At San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House, we know that children need their parents to be strong. We provide an essential "home away from home" where families may take care of their own basic needs while remaining just minutes from their child's hospital bedside. Research shows that when families stay close to their hospitalized child, the child heals faster and the family copes better. 

This year, we’ll house over 1,500 families, providing meals, computer access, laundry and exercise facilities, and much more, all in an environment where families may connect with others who understand what they’re going through. Depending on their child’s condition, families may stay at our House for days, weeks, or even months at a time.

Our Ronald McDonald House reduces costly hotel and food bills for these families during their time of crisis. Our cost to care for a family is about $140 per night, and includes food, utilities, lodging and other House services. We ask families to consider making a donation to help us ensure continuation of these important services. However, we accept families regardless of their ability to pay.

47 private guest suites give families a place to sleep, cry, and rest during their child's hospitalization.
