4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

we thought the hotel would not be a good fit, due to the location, however, our stay was extremely pleasant. we would recommend to our friends, if they want to be close to everything and a good price....for a room that they will not spend too much time in, anyway.

This hotel had: very friendly staff; great price; clean, comfy room with fridge and fast wifi; convenient location to mass transit and downtown Chula Vista. Was able to take trolley to airport for just $7 due to location. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks.

Great location in Chula Vista, near restaurants and public transportation. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was clean and equipped with microwave, refrigerator. The value was great for all the amenities that were provided. This is my second time to stay here, and would stay again in a heartbeat.

This motel is located close to the interstate 5, restaurants and a foot massage parlor, great after a long day of walking in San Diego. Also, the trolley is within walking distance if you don't want to drive, taking you either to Mexico or into San Diego. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and the price is right.... More

Friendly Helpful Staff. Nice Clean Rooms. Close to Freeway food gas and other transportation. The pool isn't very big but a great value in a good location. The location is very close to I-5 in Downtown Chula Vista. The Transit center is only a block away from the hotel.

Excellent hotel with the exception of size and layout of room, narrow between foot of bed and opposite wall. Otherwise, an excellent hotel with good location. My wife and I enjoyed out stay at this Best Western. We will stay at this hotel when we visit Chula Vista again.

We went for my daughters wedding. The room was nice, clean. My only problem was the entrance to the hotel. It was continuously blocked with people checking in. Also the maids do not speak English so be prepared to have a translator.
