Even when the hotel itself is nice and clean, its personnel at the lobby is not friendly, plus they sold out one of the two rooms I reserved without letting me know in advance. I noticed it once I got to the hotel.

Nice clean room. Secure and quiet location. No complaints at all for the $99 package being part of a meeting. The meeting room was sizable, comfortable. Again no complaints for the free meeting room which came together with the room packages. Overall a very positive experience. We had a great productive meeting, in no small part contributed by the restful... More

We chose this best western for our San Diego stay as we were on a budget and trying to get all our hotels for £50 a night or less. Location wise it's so easy to find off the highway, and is a 10 minute drive from San Diego, maybe 20 from the Zoo, and 20 from the Mexican border or... More

I chose to stay at this hotel because of its location. Located close to our favorite beach {Coronado} and access to the major freeways also close by {but not affecting our stay} was a big plus. There are many other BW in our area, but, this one was the nicest. Clean inside and out, I walked my grandson all over... More

This hotel allowed us to have our pet with us and we were minutes from the border with Tijuana. It was very restful and convenient and we had a great access to our room from parking through the patio side door of our room.
