Convenient location for access to the highway, airport, and within walking distance to the Gaslamp Quarter for a night out. Rooms were clean, breakfast offered good variety, and the rooftop garden is a particularly nice touch in the middle of downtown. The only reason I wouldn't tell someone to book this hotel was if they disliked hotels with rooms open... More

Unaware of my grand kids new home location I booked Cabrillo Inn. Excellent mistake! Sweet people, good night sleep. Staff helped book a Best Western closer to family location, carried my luggage, and called a taxi. Wonderful, comfortable experience.

We were here for three nights on a vacation trip to visit family in the area. Everything was fine; the room was quiet, staff were friendly, and wireless internet worked great. Furnishings were plain and well-used, but no complaints. They have a small (maybe 20 cars) parking lot, and we got a parking pass at check-in that gave us a... More

My second stay at this great little hotel, the beds are super comfy, the staff friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. All at BW high value prices. Very conveniently located between gaslamp and balboa park. Will definitely stay again much preferred to the faceless corporate hotels. great roof terrace - use it!

We stayed here on a last-minute trip last month. Not quite what we are used to (we like jacuzzis and restaurants on site) but so worth staying here. Many great restaurants are nearby and I was able to get in a good run with the hills and quiet(er) streets. Really close to downtown and you can walk to places you'd... More

A nice little hotel with a garden like setting. Good friendly staff. Clean, orderly rooms and relatively quiet. Kind of an oasis in the middle of downtown San Diego. Close to easy on and off of freeways but not right near the freeway.

My family and I stayed here the night before the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. It was perfect for the night and a great location for me as a race participant. I was able to walk to the start line at Balboa Park (a little over a mile away) and my family was able to walk to the finish line to... More

Great hotel with nice sized room at a decent price. It is about half way between the start and finish lines for the half marathon and so I will be able to walk both directions. Good wifi, great location and comfortable bed. Parking is tight as there are limited spaces, but priced reasonably....

Excellent value for a holiday weekend. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Parking can sometimes be difficult when the hotel is full. Breakfast was a nice touch but get there well before the hotel stops serving, otherwise it's slim pickings!

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
