We stayed in San Diego for 3 nights at this hotel. Staff was okay. Hotel is in a good location to explore the gaslamp district, visit the zoo, etc. The problem is that the rooms are fairly noisy so you can here every conversation of people sitting in the yard. Wasn't a problem for us since we brought earplugs which... More

I arrived in town early for a work function at the Hotel Del Cornoado (a magnificent place btw), so I had to find one nights' accommodation for my girlfriend and me. We have been saving every nickel and dime for an upcoming trip, so we did not have a lot of money ti spend. This narrowed down our options quite... More

Had no complaints. Breakfast was ok for a budget hotel. Room was clean. Service was good. Right next to Balboa Park and Downtown, literally. Although there no actual hotel parking, there is meter parking and street parking at all hours of the night. Never felt unsafe.

Started out with very unwelcoming and unhelpful front desk staff- took us asking 4 times before getting clarification of how to get out of the front office and to the room. The elevator and room had a funky smell. The room was tiny and felt unclean immediately upon walking in. The first thing we did was look to see if... More

We reserved our room here, since we were a little late in booking for the July 4th weekend. Rooms were small, it was a bit noisy, and being that we had a baby, that wasn't great, although it didn't wake him up. The staff were very friendly. When I called to ask them to ask the individuals to keep the... More

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

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
