We would recommend this hotel. It is quiet and close to everything. The only thing wrong is that they do not serve breakfast so you would have to find someplace else to eat but not next door. We have stayed in other Best Western Plus hotels and they serve a very nice breakfast. This saves time so you don't have... More

This property is the best when you must access 32nd St Naval Station, or Coronado. Has all the things I look for- clean, professional employee's, comfort, access to where I have to go, benefits program, pool, jacuzzi, food, immaculate rooms, free wifi. The best government programs of any hotel in the area, and the brightest person running it. Stayed there... More

Our daughter was married on Coronado Island last weekend and this is the hotel we recommended to our guests. It is new and clean and the staff are not only capable but sincerely interested in the happiness and comfort of their guests. I appreciated the helpful attitudes of Rosa Sanchez and Manuel Soltero, especially. Thank you for the great rate... More

From this hotel, you can get anywhere in San Diego in about 20 minutes. On the positive side, it has large, clean spacious rooms. The bathrooms are modern and well appointed. Housekeeping do a fine job in making up the rooms. The parking is free, compared to San Diego hotels. On the down side, the rooms are overly warm and... More

what a wonderful place to stay! Clean, well managed, quiet! Will definitely stay when we come back to the area! Felt like an all inclusive. The only downfall was the restaurant on the property. Poor service and expensive.

We spent 5 nights at this location. Best Western is not our preferred chain but one of the alternatives that we like. We were in town to visit family in the area. Sometimes we stay with family. Sometimes in a hotel. This location is fairly new. (In the last 10 years maybe?) And it looks like it is. Clean, up-to-date... More

I've never stayed at BW before but I decided to give them a try. So glad I did! This hotel was great. The staff was friendly, the hotel was up to date, the room was clean and comfortable and it was right off Interstate 5 making access to all of San Diego very convenient. I would definitely stay at this... More

We travelled California for several weeks and stayed in a lot of hotels. This one was by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Very clean, staff very friendly, modern décor, awesome facilities including a heated pool, hot tubs, good sized gym. The only downside is breakfast is not included and the recommended restaurant within the... More
