4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

This was a lovely hotel, with very good staff. The whole experience was very positive and I would return if I am back in San Diego. The landscaping was lovely. And the location of the hotel made it perfect for visiting the city, for a few days.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and have never been had a bad stay. I highly recommend it for a perfect location in the downtown area. The price is reasonable for the area . A hot breakfast is served and parking is in front of your room which is very handyt and unusual in the big city .

This is really better than a three star, but not sure it is truly a four, it is clean, quiet and very nicely located..... the staff were very friendly, however the breakfast did not meet the standard that I am use to in a Best Western, particularly a Best Western Plus..... We stayed using a coupon so not sure of... More
