Once again - staff make the difference!

Hotel is small - rooms are clean and comfortable - quick walk to Gaslamp Quarter and food. Would easily recommend for a stay... More

Little but comfortable rooms. Service (especially Carlos) is really greate!!! Breakfast is good but not more. Breakfast room is small, so when everybody is comeing it could be crowded, but there is more tables on the outside.

Our stay at the Best Western Cabrillo Garden Inn was exactly what we had hoped for. The Hotel is small and quaint. The staff was polite and attentive. The food was exactly what we needed (and the hours were very accommodating). The room was clean and the location was perfect!

I do not understand how anyone can give this place a bad review! We stayed here for 3 nights, June 28-30 during a road trip West. Out of the 10 Best Westerns we stayed in during our trip, this one was by far the best. At check in, Carlos helped us know a little more about the city. He marked... More

I have stayed at BW Cabrillo Garden Inn prior to being disabled. Now as disabled I came with my caregiver for a Harry Connick, Jr. concert across the way at Copley Hall. However, it was ComicCon week in San Diego and the handicapped room was not available for the first night. So we stayed in a regular room but my... More

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
