I honestly have no idea why this place has only less than 50% rating. My family and I have been to dozens of hotel/motels in USA and this place was wonderful. Location: this is probably the only part of the hotel that I would rate lower than others. Not because its in a bad location or anything but it is... More

Fan of most Best Westerns normally, this one in Chula Vista off Hwy 5 is pretty good. Conveniently located was it's major selling point. Right next to the trolley station that can take you to downtown San Anotnio, San Antonio's convention center, or The U.S.Naval base. My husband and I have taken the trolley downtown (One way ticket: $2.50) many... More

I paid for a deluxe room assuming it was larger as this is what deluxe usually means referring to a hotel room. All the rooms were the same size and very small. Apparently i paid extra for newer carpeting and counter tops. Replacing worn out items is just a cost of doing business i would think. The bathroom was dingy.... More

The location is decent since it's right off the freeway. You can definitely tell it's an older hotel and the crowd it attracts because of the price isn't the greatest. Don't leave anything in your room after you check out because it will be gone. We called a day or two later and they couldn't "find" what we had left.... More

Great location and price for clean, pleasant stay. Near downtown Chula Vista which is a must to visit. Compared to other hotels in San Diego best for price and comfort. I have stayed in various locations in San Diego and this was the cleanest, handiest and most economical I have found in the recent past. Friendly staff. Could use some... More
