After check-out I realized I had forgotten my wedding ring by the sink, I started to panic because the ring has been in the family for a couple of generations already and it is already a big part of my life! I immediately called the hotel so they could save it for me and the receptionist was extremely helpful, and... More

I got stranded in San Diego over the weekend and needed a clean room and since Western has a good reputation I decided to book the special for the night. The room was clean, pool was clean, Breakfast was basic,no scrambled eggs, no omelettes, but they have fruit and waffles. Considering the price this was a great deal!

This is the second time we stay at this hotel, and we love it! They added fruit and chocolate muffins (yummy!) to the breakfast, and the breakfast lady is always helpful. My room was very clean and the big king size bed is always a big plus! Ac was a little loud, but It worked.

This place was very convenient for us. We took advantage of the spacial they have online and got a king size bed for half of what other hotels in the area were charging. We were here to take a flight lesson at the Gillespie Field, and as i said this place was fabulous. Breakfast is good with waffles and sausage!... More

Great people, great hotel. Price was perfect, room was very clean, We loved the king size bed! Breakfast could be a little better, maybe scrambled eggs and ham? The guy who checked us in was helpful with directions and suggested a very good Mexican restaurant really close to the hotel. We will be back in November.

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 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

I'd like to thank you for the time you took to write this review; unfortunately on a reservation made through a third party it is not possible to change the rates, we suggest that next time you call the hotel directly for more flexibility on the cancellation policies. Thank you. More
