We visited the Best Western Plus Cabrillo Garden Inn on our last night in California. The service was good, the room clean, although the décord felt a little bit stuck in the late 90's. We picked this hotel because it was near the airport and was at a good price. We had to be at the airport at 6:00AM. A... More

The hotel exterior presents as an average motel, but on checkin Carlos was incredibly helpful and our room (225) was quiet, clean and comfortable. Bathroom small, but with good shower. WiFi good. We paid ~USD200 per night for 3 nights and at this rate on the 4 July long weekend, we were happy with our stay. Good breakfast and the... More

It's a decent Best Western, don't know how it got the PLUS rating though. It is typical of a BW motel. two story in middle of downtown full of highrises, In a semi decent neighborhood. Staff are EXCELLENT! They really go out of their way.

This is a great hotel. It has been around since at least 1946. The hotel is relatively small, as hotels go these days, but it is comfortable, and the staff is very helpful. Equally important, it is within walking distance of most of San Diego's downtown high spots, or the trolley is just a few blocks away.

Loved this small, well-located San Diego hotel. Charming decor, friendly and helpful staff and a nice rooftop patio to relax on made it a great experience and very good value.

Highest compliments to the owners and staff for a very nice setting and excellent service. The staff was knowledgeable and gracious. The breakfast lady was fantastic for her preparation and service. The rooms were just great for sleep and the upstairs roof top garden was nice for relaxation and a nice view of the city. Would highly recommend for value... More

This hotel had an excellent location and all of the services were exceptional for a person attending a conference at the downtown convention center in San Diego. If you are a walker the distance from the convention center to the hotel is a little over a mile, by taxi it is a little more than 3 minutes.

If you have to stay downtown San Diego, this is a nice, not too expensive place. It's easy to get to the Zoo and Balboa Park without having to fight the I-5 traffic. The place is cute, but modest, not sure it qualifies as a Plus.
