I’d found and chosen this hotel online. By the time we’d decided we were going to San Diego on our road trip – because my husband wanted to run the marathon – it was very near the time of travel, so I expected options to be limited. I chose America’s Best Value Inn for its rates and its location. For... More

I have no problems with a small room but I do when it means that the airco is blowing against one Side of the bed. The room was clean and cheap so that's ok but I had a bad night due to the airco so that's why I only give it 2 stars. Also, the parking is not included so... More

There is no hotel parking, it's fend for yourself street side parking, the service was poor, very snippy lady when... More

From the moment I walked onto this site I knew I was in for a horrible stay. The lobby has a terrible smell of cigarette smoke due to the fact that employees and guests regularly smoke at the front entrance. Once we checked in and walked into our room there was an overpowering and disgusting smell that words cannot possibly... More

We booked a room here based on the "ok" reviews when we had a 10.5 hour layover in San Diego after arriving at midnight. The room was very small but at least it was clean. The staff wasn't overly friendly, and we really weren't made to feel very welcome. The one biggest complaint was the bed - it was HORRIBLY... More

Stayed 3 nights at this American Best Value after flying in from UK. It is close to airport and easy to reach by the shuttles. Downtown San Diego is not cheap to stay in, but this inn offers as good a value as will get for your dollar. Found it comfortable and clean with an inner courtyard in which able... More

The room are small and smell moldy, bed is uncomfortable, no parking, basic breakfast and horrible customer care. We tried to use the laundry but there is no soap available, so we gave up. I don't recommend this hotel for anyone.

I was satisified with my stay at the Best Value Inn. It's a bit of a trek, but walking distance to the convention center as well as the airport (2 miles.) It is convenient to Balboa Park, a great place to run and see museums. It is not in the best area, but as a single female I felt safe... More

We loved staying at this hotel and will definitely stay there again; we were down the street from downtown and Bobby our concierge was most helpful and gave us all the information we needed. It was a great experience as well as a clean and quiet hotel.
