Couldn't swing a cat round in room! Room looked old and tired ! Area looked very dodgy, undesirables hanging round, so we moved out after one night! Maybe you could cope for one or two nights not 5 though!

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your. We are actually in the process of updating all of the rooms. Currently the entire project is only 50% complete, however we are confident that all rooms should be updated before the summer season. Additionally the area is improving as well. The city of San Diego installed a bicycle... More

Not knowing the greater San Diego area we decided on this locale because it was more economical for our vacation budget. We arrived after 10:00 pm after a cross country flight and found that we would be able to rest in a plain, yet comfortable room. The decor was reminiscent of the seventies style. The continental breakfast was as expected,... More

True a little far away from main street and you have to walk uphill, cross freeway. But very lone airy and green locality. Four storied building with full amenities. Super service. They arranged for a microwave oven for me on the room. I brought good chicken roast from the sea food resturant keep it in freeze and are heart's content... More

I was looking for a place to rest for the night and found this place and an adjacent property West Park Inn (same ownership) on Hotels.com. I was about to book it and thought I should just walk over and do it in person since I work nearby. Im glad I didn't book online. The rate was $57+tax which comes... More

Staff are always nice. I can always find a clean room at the last minute. Some rooms are newly remodeled. West Park Inn has a gated area. Very friendly & close to Gaslamp, Downtown, Hillcrest, Airport, Seaport Village, anything. Always enjoy my stay here.

Stayed here when connecting overnight at San Diego airport. Checked in at midnight, checked out at 6 AM. Lowest price hotel in town that night but 3.5 stars on TA was deceptive. Good: efficient checkin late at night by Jasmine I think. Rooms clean, microwave, small fridge, free bottles of water at checkin, free breakfast (though we never saw it... More

This is a budget hotel with budget services, Its location is not the best, but you access easily to public transport that can take you to the main viewpoints in San Diego, even they are on walking distance from this hotel; Balboa Park is very near from there. The first day we arrived , the room we got was totally... More

We have enjoyed our stay here. Extremely clean, comfortable beds, fridge, microwave and all amenities, they havent forgotten anything here. Windows that open for fresh air, and a very big continental breakfast. The courtyard with flowers and fountain is a refreshing change to look out onto or sit and use your laptop or read. Much better than the stuffy hotels... More

Overall, we enjoyed our 26-night stay at this hotel. Rooms are basic but clean and serviceable. Flat screen TV, fridge and microwave are a plus. We enjoyed the nutritious breakfast with many choices. The inviting, lush green courtyard with a fountain reminds us of serene Spanish courtyards in Barcelona. Centrally located, convenient to transportation. Most of the staff are very... More
