On short notice, we needed to find a place to say close to Lakeside, CA. We chose this Best Western based on its close location. We made the reservation online for a King bed requesting it be away from the freeway. Shortly after the reservation was made, just before we left to drive to Lakeside, we received a phone call...

The rooms are run down, obvious wear and tear. The shower was horrible! The worst part was that we had booked a room for a week and when we got there and saw the condition of the room, we immediately switched hotels. When we went to cancel our reservation the clerk was pleasant enough about it however did not offer... More

Room #121 mostly acceptable. A few strange items like a slanted towel rack and a Coffee Maker that did not have its own socket. No socket near bed for my CPAP. Musty smell (I have a super-sniff powers). No windows on first floor but opened the sliding door and main door so was able to air out room. Good fridge.... More

Freshly unclean toilet, stained and dirty toweling and wash cloths and dirt in the shower/tub. Late, late, late night/morning partying by "guest/residents". Wouldn't recommend to someone I dislike. Quality of "guest/residents" questionable at best. It does, however, mirror it's neighborhood. Directly straddles 8 fwy but you couldn't hear it over the party in adjoining room. BWare of this Hotel.

We were pleasantly surprised how good this hotel was because the cost was so low. The room was very spacious and comfortable. We thought since the back of the room faced the freeway it would be too loud to sleep, but it wasn't. It was nice..

Introduction: Old hotel with some nice flare. Hotel has that feel like its worth the price to stay, and welcomes you. Unfortunately it also doesn't live up to the hype once you enter your room. Checkin: Receptionist was unhelpful. Asked for a crib in the room, was told "it was to heavy to move into your room." Crib was behind... More

The hotel room smelled awful and I had to change hotel rooms. The air conditioner didn't work in the next room and they had to replace it. There was no manager or supervisor available for three whole days while I stayed at this hotel. I would definitely not recommend this hotel.

Very friendly staff, Very clean rooms. Breakfast was very nice. I had to switch rooms because i booked the wrong size room and they did everything they had to to get me into a room that worked for me. My room was cleaned every day with no problems. the pool was nice and refreshing after a long day at the... More

We chose this hotel without knowing anything about it except that it was reasonably priced and within 18 miles of SeaWorld. We arrived at 10pm. Checkin was quick and we received all the information we needed for our next day. Room had a fridge (yes it was on) and microwave and plenty of room! When we went for our continental... More

this trip, again, was excellent in all aspects. I had a friend who was coming in from out of town for business, and she needed somewhere that was comfortable, and had a nice pool and jacuzzi, but was roomy enough so she could complete her work. She absolutely LOVED this facility, and will book it again, her next trip in.... More
