I stayed here one night. Room was clean. I had a King room. Fridge and microwave in room. Bathroom was nice with granite counter. Room had an updated flat screen TV. Free WiFi, but like most internet I've experienced in CA it is slow. South Korea's is more than 100 times faster. I would stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel while taking a weekend course at Southwestern California College. It was conveniently located near the school and was all in all a good place to stay. The staff was very accommodating, especially a young man named "Manny" who helped me check in and plan my next weekend visit.

We stayed in room 306 and had a comfortable stay except for the cigarette smoke that came through our vent/air conditioner. Although a smoking free hotel (indoors) people gathered every night below our room and their smoke seeped into our room - that was not enjoyable at all. The front desk did apologize and offered to move us the next... More

We stayed here for a night last spring, and missed having the breakfast buffet so ended up going to a different Best Western property for our next stay. But overall it was a nice night: the hotel/grounds are very pretty and the location is fantastic, right off I5 and an easy on & off. Staff were friendly and check in/out... More

We've stayed here for 5 nights while visiting San Diego zoo and safari and SeaWorld. Checked in was quick. Great location and felt safe, less than a minute to freeway exit. Hotel is quite new. Room was clean and modern decor. Breakfast not included. Had to knock off 1* because of room cleaning. Came back to the hotel one night... More

We stayed here during March 2015 on a 5 day visit to San Diego. We had a room on the top floor facing the courtyard and the Pool. The hotel is just south of Downtown San Diego and has reasonably good access to most of the major attraction including Zoo, Safari Park, SeaWorld etc. The hotel itself is very clean... More

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

The hotel was very clean and up to date. The staff was helpful if anything was needed. There amenities that were at the hotel were appropriate for the location. The hotel was convenient to the freeway to get were you needed to go.

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
