(KGTV) - San Diego may have looked a little more crowded this summer, as the city welcomed thousands of guests through short-term rentals alone.
San Diego welcomed nearly 188,000 guests through the Airbnb platform over the summer. The only cities with more recorded Airbnb guests this season were New York City, Los Angeles, and Seattle, according to the company.
Last year, the San Diego City Council struck down a proposal to ban short-term rentals, such as Airbnb, within neighborhoods zoned for single-family homes.
The proposal, introduced by then-council President Sherri Lightner, aimed to outright deal with issues raised by some locals regarding noise problems and complaints caused by short-term vacation renters.
