This just an average place to stay so don't expect more. The location and price made the decision for us since we have family in the area. The traffic noise from I-8 was noticeable but not offensive. The heater never worked. The sheets were average/

This is an excellent Best Western. I am a Best Western rewards member and almost always stay at a Best Western when I am out of town. I average about 3 nights a month in a hotel in Southern Cal for business, and this hotel is a great value for this area. I have stayed in this hotel about 5... More

Our room was clean. Reliable Wi-Fi in our room. It was A little noisy being right next to I 8 freeway. Average room size and arrangement but couldn't figure out the AC. Heat/Cool or any button resulted in the same thing, air blowing; but it was a reasonable value. Front office was understaffed and not pleasant

We checked in and it looked like a nice place despite the sketchy neighborhood. Immediately upon entering the room and turning on the lights, I saw something in plain sight on the floor behind the television stand which turned out to be a condom wrapper with a wad of chewing gum stuck to it. Though the room was comfortable otherwise,... More

Motel didn't live up to our experience of Best Western standards, and do not plan to get anything nutritious for breakfast here (was bare-bones continental style). The beds (2 queens) were WELL used. The furniture in our room was what would be expected of a Best Western but they had to cram it all into the room, so we had... More

I stayed at the Best Western Continental Inn on Saturday, August 29th, afternoon, until Sunday August 30th, morning, the temps outside were over 100° outside, but the air conditioners cooled the room down to a very comfortable 68°. Everything else -- the pool, the jacuzzi, the breakfast in the morning, the attention of the staff, was exemplary.

This hotel is terrible. Upon arrival, the beds were hastily made and sleeping in it felt like a cheap mattress of flea-market quality. The staff made no attempt to accommodate us when we went to have breakfast and the room was full. The antiquated A/C stopped working and the staff made no attempt to recompense the problem.
