It's a good place to stay. Economical and has all the basic amenities. Services and staff are great. Specially Randall, he helped me out when I couldnt find my room key. He was very patient and understanding. He was also very helpful in suggesting me great places to visit in San Diego.

I was in town for a friends wedding, and one of my friends recommended this hotel because of the cheaper price. I really regret booking at this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, no complaints with them. The biggest issue was the tiny room, and bugs. Another group of friends also checked in at the same hotel and told... More

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

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
