I stayed two nights in the Cabrillo while my daughter had a baby at the Naval Hospital close by. I arrived really late and had concerns about parking that late at night. The staff had reserved me a spot in the parking lot which was wonderful as it has very limited parking. My overall stay was great. The only negative... More

The hotel is close by car to everything in the county and on foot you can walk to Horton Plaza and the Gaslamp district, although I walk all over downtown from... More

This is a great place to stay. They are very helpful, close to Balboa Park, and very close to the public transportation system. The greeting was very friendly and the desk clerk (Olga) was very helpful with tips on places to see and eat and she gave us info on how to ride the trolley in San Diego. The weekend... More

We were in town for a conference and were looking for an affordable place to stay. The Best Western Cabrillo was an excellent choice. The rooms were nice, the continental breakfast was helpful, and the staff was very courteous. I would stay there again.

I asked Google to find me a hotel close to the symphony, as it is difficult for me to walk long distances. This was a very easy walk and quaint hotel. The beds are a little hard for my taste but very nice staff and overall decent spot.
