What an absolute pleasure. The entire staff makes you feel like family. I've never stayed at a hotel where all the employees smile. They were also very responsive to any extra requests. Even though there didn't appear to be ample outdoor seating, there was never an issue when enjoying the complimentary breakfast. This hotel is easy access to the Old... More

Good value for the money. I always stay here when in downtown San Diego. Most other hotels are either fully booked or way too expensive. Keep in mind this is a Best Western, don't expect the Ritz Carlton...

A lovely hotel just a short walk from the Gaslamp District and a short jog from Balboa Park. Welcoming staff, clean room and quiet streets (for a city). The only slight criticism is that they didn't tell us about a few things when we first arrived, and whilst we had time to learn, those on a shorter stay would not.... More

When I drove by this a few years ago, my son asked, "Does Best Western Premier mean you get bars on the windows?" pointing at this hotel. As a result, I've shied away from it on my trips to San Diego. However, having recently stayed there I can definitely say that first impressions can be incorrect! The hotel was very... More

Love this little boutique hotel. I frequently travel alone and I feel safe and comfortable here. It is an easy walk to the Gas Lamp district. The parking is right in front of the hotel. The breakfast choices are many and the staff is always pleasant and helpful.

Hotel is well located with reasonable prices especially given the breakfast that was included. Rooms a bit small but fine for short stay. Parking was a bit tight but price was reasonable for downtown San Diego. Close to downtown and Balboa Park.

Great location, extremely nice facility, and an awesome staff! Very close to Balboa Park, Sea World, the ocean, shopping and good restaurants. If I have only one suggestion it would be, plan your breakfast carefully (time-wise) due to the fact the "Breakfast Room" is a bit small, with seating capacity for only 8 people inside (two small tables and a...

Hard to credit this hotel as a Best Western Plus, as at first sight it's a rather basic, two-storey, old-fashioned motel of the type you rarely find downtown in big cities these days. But the location is key: it's hard by Symphony Hall and the shortest of walks from the bustling Gaslamp Quarter, yet the price is reasonable. Inside, the... More
