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.

My boyfriend and I chose this hotel for a small weekend getaway, one night stay. We chose this hotel specifically for the price and location (only two min. cab ride to downtown). Parking is free on the street during certain days/times, but it is limited. Upon arrival, Alex, the concierge on duty at the time, was very nice and attentive.... More

We stayed here over Halloween so we could go out in Gas Lamp district. The hotel was farther then the website made it seem- probably about 20 min brisk walk to Gaslamp. Room was tiny but ok for a night. Wouldn't want to stay much longer with 2 people as we were tripping over our suitcases as there wasn't really... More

This hotel is a great example of the old saying "You get what you pay for." Now I didn't expect much because of the price, but I was very disappointed by this hotel. We booked here knowing that San Diego parking can be expensive, and the website advertised free parking. When we arrived, there was a pamphlet describing the free... More

Stayed here last weekend. 1st off the service was GREAT!! The room was average but small but not a bother for me. It was only a mile ($7.00 cab ride) from the gas lamp district. Which was the reason we stayed out there. I had no complaint and would stay again. The value was good for the stay.
