Planned a trip to San Diego for 4 nights with my BF and chose this hotel because I'm usually happy with Best Western hotels. They are pretty consistent. Upon arrival I felt a bit underwhelmed since it appeared so tiny amongst the surrounding high rises. Our room on the second floor was pretty small and the bathroom had little counter... More

I chose this hotel because it is only one mile from Petco Park, which allowed us to walk to and from the Taylor Swift concert there. I like the appearance of this hotel, especially the lobby area, but the room itself is tiny. Staff was friendly, and there were lots of breakfast options. We did not encounter any problems during...

This is a nice clean small hotel, close to the waterfront, Little Italy, SD Zoo and Balboa park. They offer a small continental breakfast, the food attendant was very nice and helpful. Parking spaces are tight but it was fine.

Olga at the front desk could not have been better. She was capable and projected a genuinely kind and caring attitude. Being from the northeast U.S., it was a very unusual experience for us - in a positive way. The hotel overall is like the little train engine in the children's book...."I think I can, I think I can, I... More

Down in San Diego, I had another great stay at Cabrillo Garden Inn. The staff is always so caring and helpful, hot breakfast always great and the place itself immaculate and comfortable so everything goes smoothly as a result. This is the place to stay when visiting San Diego!

This two-story hotel is quaint with a garden feel in a big city. But with that quaintness comes small rooms. They advertise the rooms have 2 queen size beds but they felt a lot more like doubles/fulls. There isn't much room left after you put the beds in which means one bed is within 18 inches of the air conditioner.... More

I took my mom and my 11 year old son to San Diego for a mini-vacation and based on the reviews from other hotel visitors, made the reservation at Cabrillo Garden Inn. This little place is so charming, and like others have said, the staff really make it that much more special. Yes, the rooms are little, but they are... More

We stayed here for the central location. I was a little worried when we drove up and I realized it had exterior hallways. However, once in the room, it was extremely quiet! The room was on the smaller size and the bathroom was small, but very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was adequate. There was just enough parking so it... More

At first glance I was not overly sold on this hotel, its not the most glam looking place from outside even though I had viewed the pic, it also is very small . If I had paid $30 I could have been in a far superior hotel just down the road with a pool which somewhat disappointed me especially when... More
