Average motel, beds too uncomfortable to sleep. average location. close to city of San Diego. average prices. Small pool, nothing to do close to the hotel, and no too many restaurant in the area close to the hotel. if you oversleep, they let you to check out one hour late without penalty.

When we pulled up the outside wasn't the best looking so we were a bit nervous we had booked something we weren't going to like however we loved our stay!! The room was updated, had a microwave, fridge, coffee pot, flat screen tv, and nice bedding! The breakfast was delicious (waffles,eggs, biscuits & gravy, cereal, pastries, and cereals), had quick...

we stayed in this hotel for 2 nights while visiting a friend in San Diego. my main criteria was free breakfast because there were 5 of us and to satisfy everyone's needs takes a lot of time. this hotel had breakfast selections above and beyond what i could imagine! the rooms were big and clean, beds were comfortable. the only...

Overall a good experience. Had issues with the room's entry door not always working. The outside appearance of the hotel is dated and not so appealing, however I was pleasantly surprised with the appearance and size of my room. It was very roomy, and the updates were very nice. This was a great location for visiting my daughter who is... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and acted like they cared, from the time we checked in to the conversation we had with them at breakfast and in the lobby during the day. The rooms were hard to get into with your key at first, but did get the hang of it after... More

There is currently no in-room safe, but I was told they were working on it. It has been recently renovated, but it still has the old motel smell. If you want a quiet say, avoid the building by the pool. Breakfast was above average for this price point. They have a new fitness center, not too bad.

My friends had to me how nice and clean and what a great FREE breakfast they have. So If your staying in Chula Vista you should try this one. Its very nice and quiet and the staff is great.It's really great for shopping and the restaurants in the area are very good.

The quality of the rooms, specifically bathroom did not meet my standards. The enamel was peeling from our reserved room. When I pointed it out during the check-in inspection of the room the staff responded by immediately assigning me another room. The staff are friendly and very helpful. They made the stay bearable. I have stayed at Best Western hotels... More

Nice but not luxurious, regular working person place to stay. Comfortable and quiet. The beds are great, you drop off to sleep almost on contact with sheets. Pool could use some heating because a light wind makes you shiver when exiting the water. A very nice plus is that the San Diego Trolley E street stop is only 200 feet... More

This hotel served its purpose, but for a Best Western, I expected more. The quality seemed to be on par somewhere between a Motel 6 and a Super 8. The rooms and buildings seem rather dated. The interior has had an attempt to update. The two beds in our room were rather firm. The tub/shower combo had no anti-slip on... More
