5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

the best western continental inn is one of My favorite places to have a really nice getaway, and still have excellent proximity to the many sites here in san diego. Having immediate access to the Interstate 8 freeway is a HUGE bonus. and the pool and jacuzzi are wonderful

I have stayed a t this hotel for the last few days and I love it! The clerks go out of their way to help you, and the maids leave my room spotless! Breakfast is basic, but OK, and internet is good (too bad they don't have wired internet). Managers are always smiling, and it's nice to see the owners... More

I stayed one night with an out of town guest. The room was clean comfortable and the front desk staff is awesome. Very friendly staff and no problems at all. The rooms are a little outdated but comfortable. Great stay.

BAIT AND SWITCH. Staff was rude. Turned on the whirlpool and GUESS WHAT it didn't work after several trips by hotel staff it finally... More

This property needs a total overhaul. Cockroaches everywhere. Did not stay! Staff was very apologetic and refunded out charges immediately. I felt really bad for him, you could tell he was embarrassed; he even offered to contact another property in the for us.

I stayed here for two days. When I first walked into the room it had a really bad smell. As I walked through and looked at the rest of the room the floor was not vacuumed, the toilet and tub was dirty, there was fecal matter on the the toilet seat. In addition their towels are stained and dingy, on... More

For room and location to getting to where you want to get in a hurry it pretty hard to beat. The freeway is about 100 feet from the hotel. As far as the rooms are concern the king size bed with the full on Kitchen cant be beat! Im taking about a sink, an oven, 3 electric Eyes for cooking... More

This hotel is average quality of the Best Western Hotels. The room was clean and the bed was okay. What made the stay uncomfortable was the loud boisterous parties in various rooms, which was noisy. Several of the guests were pigs, throwing food and trash around the grounds of the hotel. I reported the mess that was caused by guests... More

The price was good for a Thursday night stay. However our room was constantly filled with the chemical odors from the rooms being repainted and repaired next to ours. We were out most of the day/evening so by the time we returned much later in the evening it was too late to request a different room.
