We very much enjoyed everything about our stay at the Best Western PLUS Marina Gateway Hotel in National City, California. The facility is lovely, the staff is fantastic, and our room was nicely decorated and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Wonderful stay!

Rented a two king bedroom We only did a night but everything was very clean. The pool was great and the jacuzzi was the best. Fitness room open 24 hrs a day. I was very happy with this place close to the freeway, in and out and dennys for breakfast.

Pool, putting green, laundry, nice room with fridge and coffee maker, Quiet, lots of TV channels, free WiFi, "Goodies" restaurant and bar across parking lot, "In n Out" burgers, and Dennys very nearby. 15 minutes by freeway to anything, freeway is 1/4 mile away. Won't cost you a fortune either. Airport, 15 minutes away.

Location was good, near everything in San Diego but away from the crowd and free parking. The restaurant on the property was OK. The staff can recommend better places for breakfast & dinner. Rooms were spacious and bed were comfortable. WiFi was OK.

Small gym with decent equipment, good business centre with 4 computers and free printing. The pool area is quite... More

This is one of the best, Best Western Plusses around!! Pretty new, clean, comfortable. Convenient to San Diego, Beaches and inland suburbs. 15 minutes from the beach. Close to a great walking/biking/running trailhead for a trail that circles the bay for miles. Boat marina nearby with nice restaurant/grill with outdoor seating. Also a public boat launch ramp and associated park... More

No continental breakfast. Not enough coffee makers in lobby. Uncomfortable small square pillows. Beds too firm. Sheets rather rough. Good location for National City. Great live music across at Goodes. However would be nice if music played later. Would be nice for upon check in, someone would give information about hotel such as pool, elevators, laundry room, locations, hours etc.
