This hotel is simply great. There was a minor problem with my reservation (got listed somehow under a different name). They quickly and professionally dealt with the problem while making me feel that my satisfaction was the most important thing. Have stayed at this hotel several times and its very clean, in fact the cleanest I have ever stayed at.... More

This staff knows etiquette and good manners. I was treated like a KING! Food vouchers and shuttles to the GasLamp district! They turned a business trip into a vacation! 10 to 20 min to EVERYTHING in San Diego. Shopping at Las Americas Outlets is about 45% cheaper than at the same Outlets in Colonial Williamsburg, VA!

I cannot say enough good things about the people working at this hotel. They were very proactive in seeing to it that my stay was comfortable and hassle free. I would not hesitate to choose the Best Western Marina Gateway Hotel again for future . This is my 'go to' place every time I am in the San Diego area.

It is much nicer than expected. Rooms were immaculate. Hotel is nicely decorated, well lighted, safe. The hotel staff were great. Check in and out was very quick. All for around $100. I will be staying here again.

Cost less than $100 a night, cant beat the price. Very Nice Best Western Hotel, reminded me of Holiday Inn Express or Fairfield Inn but does not include any type of breakfast. There is a food extablishment in same pakring lot, dont forget to get the 20% coupon from hotel.

This was our first time in San Diego and we had no idea where to stay in order to easily see the Zoo, Coronado Hotel, Seaport Village and Old Town. This turned out to be the perfect location. Only one restaurant, Goodies, in the area but we thought the food was very good! Especially Happy Hour!! The young men at... More

Will stay at the Marina Gateway again when we are in the area. Great place! Location is good and even though there is no breakfast, the restaurant on site is basically in the parking lot of the motel and has a varied menu at a reasonable price

Just returned from two nights at this hotel. Previous reviews came in very helpful. I did not notice/hear ant railroad noise and we were on the end closest to the tracks, but not directly behind them. But I can certainly see where noise from the adjacent bar/restaurant would be a problem with the rooms in the front due to the... More
