Actually, as I remember, the Town & Country is in an area called 'Hotel 
Circle', which is a little valley which contains almost nothing except
hotels & related restaurants, etc.  This means that there are lots of
other inexpensive hotels nearby, but there's really quite a bit of land
so that they're all separated by large parking lots.  Plus, half of the
hotels are on the other side of a freeway.  I've only been at a Town &
Country convention once, but I didn't consider the site memorable.

San Diego does have some nice downtown areas (love the cinnamon buns
at Horton Plaza) but I'm not sure if there are any decent convention
hotels there.  Of course, since it's southern California, everyone
is expected to drive.
