We chose this hotel because of the lower price than all of the other San Diego properties. Best Western Plus Marina Gateway is located in National City. It is a bit out of the way from most restaurants and the main part of San Diego, but if I were to pick again, I would stay here. The hotel is located... More

My family stayed here for a week in July and enjoyed it. The hotel is situated right off the I-5 and is very convenient to get around to see the sights. I cannot emphasize how great a benefit it was being right next to the highway. The property is well maintained, for the most part, and the staff is very... More

I note in your survey a question as to breakfast has never been any breakfast and no coffee except in the room with only one regular and one decaff. When I am paying $116 to $170 I am usually able to at least get some coffee and usually a breakfast. If the cost is going to be at a 4... More

I read many reviews before I chose this hotel and I made a great pick! I was very happy with our stay at the Best Western Plus. The hotel is beautiful from the outside and the lobby is inviting. The rooms are exactly how they look like in the pictures they look very new, the beds are comfortable, their linen... More

Hotel was very clean and comfortable. We got the the suite which had a balcony, 2 televisions, a sofa bed, MW and refrigerator for 4 adults. Enjoyed the balcony after a day at the beach. Plenty of room. As an added bonus it was located near the trolley stop for easy access to downtown SD for a baseball game. I... More

San Diego has a ton of options for hotels, and this is definately one of the better ones. It should be mentioned that we'd stay here again however, there are a few things worth informing future travelers. The hotel is actually in the suburb of National City, Ca, but is a close 15 minute drive from downtown. Its location is... More

This hotel is exceptionally well kept and clean. The location is within a few minutes of downtown San Diego. The surrounding neighborhood is not the best, and the are no real views from the hotel. The pool and spa are nicely situated and the staff are very helpful and professional. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in... More

It was clean, comfortable, and close to attractions. Staff was friendly. I will definitely stay here when I return to San Diego. The only negative comment I would have is that there wasn't a free breakfast. However, there is a restaurant next door. It was also clean and nice.

The government rate for this hotel does not get you very much in the way food and/or drinks. You get a gift card to Denny's that you have to get from the front desk every morning which is a little annoying. It is close to the freeway which is nice if you are driving for work every day. But it... More

I called to confirm my reservation. Manny answered the phone very pleasantly and was able to assist me promptly. He inquired if I had any request since he already had me on the phone. I asked him what were some usual requests they get at their hotel. He mentioned a higher floor. I took it! Thank you Manny! You were... More
