Troller is very close, good price and easy to use with compass card (trollers and buses) to go anywhere around (San Ysidro, San Deigo, Dowtown village, Gaslight village and more). Hotel is clean and it was quite all nights.

Great value, free safe parking. Hotel is just across from San Diego Trolley stop at E Street; very convenient for travel to the border or downtown. Room was refurbished with comfortable beds and steady, reliable wireless internet connection.

The staff here is great. The beds are comfortable. It is strategically located near the highway, but close to great places to eat. The breakfast is good. We have stayed here many times and we have never been disappointed. If you are considering a stay in San Diego, this is a great choice. It is also close to the subway/metro... More

We stayed for a few nights last fall and were very comfortable. It is definitely an older property but has been updated nicely and although small, the rooms were very clean and quiet. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was pretty good with all the usual Best Western options. I am not much of an eater in the morning so... More

This hotel is very well located for transportation links to the city - the day pass on the metro system is only $5 and offers excellent value. The staff at the hotel are helpful. The only issues that we had was that, the breakfast room was a little small and soon filled up and the safe in the room did... More

Ok people.. you get what you pay for. You can't expect a 5 star room for less than $100/night. Overall I am satisfied with my stay here. Stayed for 3 nights, breakfast included. Room was clean and had a microwave and mini fridge. My only minor complaint is that the shower tub would get clogged if you kept the water... More

In my opinion it is a very good deal for your money's worth. It is within 30 minutes of most of what San Diego has to offer (with the exception of the Safari Zoo). Even TJ is 10/15 minutes away It is not luxurious treatment oriented but more like for the no non-sense trooper who only needs a clean room... More

The property was well kept. I got there and i thought that I was going to have to pay a $100 deposit because they had a sign up. Luckily I paid through Trip Advisor and didn't have to deal with the whole deposit thing. The room was very clean and it didn't have a weird smell. The whole thing is... More

Staff were wonderful! They were way above average! The rooms however, were dated and the heater was very noisy. Continental breakfast was great and very popular. Location is on a very busy street but noise level was ok. Train crossing was a constant but we got used to it. Again, the staff were fantastic.
