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.

San Diego has a lot of options.. however.. we did choose to stay at the Best Western Cabrillo Garden Inn which is centrally located to Balboa Park, The Gaslamp District,... More

We stayed for a weekend. The place was well located. Rooms were clean and neat with comfortable beds. Bathrooms were small but functional. Breakfast was included which was ok. Our only complaint was the noise from the room next door which was loud talking that went most of the night. On the 2nd day we spoke to staff who requested... More

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
