Stayed 3 nights on a short visit to San Diego, and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent experience. Last year I had the misfortune to stay at another BW Plus location (Chula Vista/Otay Valley) which should be re-characterized as a BW Minus! This visit was the absolute opposite! The hotel was fresh and attractive in appearance, the room very clean...

I have stayed at this hotel before but this time I felt disappointed with the lack of a breakfast and with the hard pillows. There was also a musty odor in the bathroom and what sounded like water dripping inside the wall in the bathroom. My sleep wasn't very good and I was bothered by the lack of blankets. I...

This was a good place to stay but why do I continually get the room farthest down the hall and I get a lot of handicapped room with no tub. The front desk said I had a sliding door going to the pool. We'll instead I got a parking lot with a doggie no pooping sign. No Continental breakfast but...

Enjoyed two comfortable nights at BW. Offering a breakfast would have been a bonus. The hotel was convenient to many local attractions. Staff at front desk were helpful to suggesting restaurants etc. We would recommend and choose Best Western for future travel.

This is a great location, especially if you have a car as it's just off the interstate. The room was really clean, internet was quick and the heated pool and spa were well maintained - couldn't fault the staff. Goodies bar and restaurant is located right next door and was perfect to eat at - thanks for a memorable stay...

Stayed in this really nice hotel recently for two nights. We were made to feel so welcome on arrival and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff remained throughout our stay. We loved our room which was both modern and comfortable and absolutely spotless. The hotel amenities, which includes a great pool area, were very good indeed. If anything the...

A Location is convenient for on and off of Interstate 5. There is a restaurant in the parking lot but several other dining choices are very...

Hotel is modern, clean and comfortable- staff efficient and friendly. The room was spacious but starting to feel it's age in comparison to other BW Plus hotels that we stayed in during our road trip. Location is convenient for the Interstate and close to the tram (trolley) stop which goes downtown- but it is out of town, so other than...

This is a nice hotel to stay in San Diego. I enjoyed the interior design and staff are very friendly and helpful. The heated swimming pool and spa are nice after a whole day walking in town. The only downside is that there is no free breakfast. They do have a restaurant nearby for discounted breakfast
