This hotel is in a great location. We are just minutes from Petco Stadium, Gas Lamp Quarter, Seaport Village, Seaworld and Coronado Island. It is very clean and well kept. Most staff were quite friendly and accommodating and the restaurant/bar on site was great. The downfall of this hotel is that it sits right on the train tracks.. literally feet... More

Great location, just off the I-5 expressway. But far enough not to hear any noise in the rooms. The rooms were very clean, large and modern. The room that I was staying in had a large balcony. The staff was excellent! There is a restaurant on the property. Breakfast lunch and dinner/ bar. Food ok. In the morning there is... More

Good location, great bar and grill across the road, clean hotel. Only negative is the radiator in the room is hard to stabilize and as some one who is very sensitive to noise it really frustrated me with it turning on and off all night.

I booked this hotel through Groupon at a good price. When we got there, we realized it was a great price! It was clean, modern, and comfortable. The room was large, we had views of the water, and it was close to the marina and Gaslamp District. It was right next to the Naval Base to give you a better... More

Great place right off the I-5 freeway. Clean, comfort, rooms with a lot of space and courteous staff. Breakfast and food at the adjoining restaurant is not great, but OK. Room service forgot to clean our room for whatever reason, but were very apologetic and made up for it fast.

Without a doubt, the best thing about this hotel is the location. Located right off the interstate and less than 3 blocks from the MTS blue line trolley stop, it doesn't get much more convenient than this. The pedestrian path from the hotel to the MTS stop is very well laid out and is easy to follow with clearly marked... More

The entire hotel is much nicer than any other Best Western I've visited - lovely layout, helpful staff, large rooms. All with working microwaves and fridges. Plusses: Super clean, both rooms, hallways, lobby areas. Large and very well equipped exercise room. Ice machines all work (our party of 5 rooms on different floors can attest to this.) Close to the... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days for a Baseball trip. The hotel was very clean and well kept. The staff was friendly. The hotel is near the trolley and the hotel provided transportation to/from trolley station. The trolley took us straight to Petco park. We didn't use the pool or gym, but the areas looked well kept. We... More

Excellent hotel, reasonably priced near many SD sites. Very clean, nice large rooms with many amenities at a reduced price. Ideal if you have a car a don't want to spend a lot for room. Located near the 5 Interstate and 10 minutes from downtown. A real bonus, no extra charge for parking. Great little local place for breakfast 5... More

My friend and I chose to stay here for a conference and it was surprisingly convenient to go to the convention center in the morning. Its a five minute walk to the trolley station and a 25 min ride to the gaslamp station. For a third of the price, I would have to say that the value is exceptional, even... More
