We went to sea world, safari park and zoo. It is a convenient location - around 20 minutes drive for sea world and zoo. 35 minutes for safari park. A lots of places to eat nearby. Good breakfast. Rooms are in need of minor cosmetic repairs. AC worked. Room was clean. Staff was friendly.

This is the worst hotel we have EVER stayed in. Actually it is not a hotel, it is a MOTEL. It doesn't qualify to have a Best Western name on it, more like MOTEL 6. Don't take me wrong the price is great (we paid $300 total for 4 night in the busy season), but don't ruin your vacation like... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. Our room was good and clean. We did stay on the third floor but was happy to have an elevator. The only bad thing was we booked it for 4 people and we only had 3 towels. We had to go ask for more which they were nice, but would have been... More

Hotel is easy to find - right off the interstate and close to attraction. Rooms were clean, Breakfast offered way more than the normal continental - hard boiled eggs and waffles.... I would definitely choose this hotel again.

Wow this has to be the worst Best Western I have ever stayed in. I thought 1 night would not matter, was I wrong. Dim lit rooms, towel rack fell of when I reached for a towel, noisy, noisy, noisy even the A/C was noisy and I could hear youth running around the 2nd floor with it on high. Very... More

I reserved three rooms for three nights. The rooms were clean. One AC was not working well, and it was repaired while we were out. The breakfast is average, even though the lady servicing the breakfast is very friendly and helpful. I was impressed with the person who serviced our room. We did not need our rooms cleaned each day,... More

this was another wonderful stay at the Best Western Continental, as it always is. The hotel staff are wonderfully helpful, courteous, and cordial, and the pool and jacuzzi, are wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable.

The front door inside latch broken within 10 minutes of entering room. The musty odor of the room was strong and we had to air out the room by opening the sliding door, however the freeway noise and pollution was bad. Neighboring businesses looked rundown and a local 7-Eleven had people selling drugs in plain site and transits were up... More
