I stayed three nights in this hotel in February and I agree with the reviews written below. The location is excellent; the staff are wonderful; the hotel grounds are beautiful and well maintained; the restaurant (to which I received two drink tickets) was solid for dinner and quite nice for breakfast. My room was spacious but rather musty. As this... More

My family of 4 including teens stayed here during comic con because it was all we could get but I would book it again. It was a lovely property right in old town. No need to drive anywhere at night. Just walk down hill to many restaurants. Kids just stayed back to enjoy hot tub and pool. I love to... More

This hotel is located on in a great area of old town! It also has a beautiful old Spanish flare to it with all the art work and design of the buildings. Walking around the property (which we had to do often!) is really pretty with tons of tropical plants and flowers. However when it comes to the rooms they... More

I don't really understand why many raters were hung up on small things. This hotel is in a very relaxing setting (if you follow the signs, you can easily find your building/room, the restaurant, etc.) and it's close to everything. The room was big, the TV was large flat panel, the bed was comfortable, and amenities were fine. My only... More

If you want to stay in Old Town, this is a great choice. A well-maintained, beautiful, sprawling property. We were a little concerned after some of the "so-so" reviews but made the right choice by ignoring them and staying here. Be prepared to walk the layers of steps; not a problem for us and actually one of the nice things... More

As with my last Best Western experience, the bedding and staff were the best parts. First they "upgraded" me to the executive suite, which was very undesireable, so they switched me to a nice room just above the pool with a lovely view of the harbor. It was a bit loud on Saturday night and the ceiling above my room... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week long San Diego vacation. We chose this hotel over other hotels in the area because we had so many American Express points that they basically paid for our hotel stay. The location of this hotel is amazing, it really cannot be beat by any of the higher end hotels. This property... More

My daughter and I spent one night here. She lives in San Diego and had heard good things about it. We stayed here for several reasons- good food in Old Town, the shopping, the view from our hotel and the closeness to the airport for my early A.M. flight. It was a bit confusing but we soon figured everything out.... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice. It's not the most Ritzy hotel in San Diego, but I'll choose this one every time I go back. The staff are friendly and polite. The rooms are in mulitple buildings going up a hill. If you can get a room on top of the hill, the view is great. My room was larger... More

The good: If you want to stay in Old Town, you really can't beat the location of this hotel. It is literally a few steps away from the main thoroughfare of Old Town. The staff is also friendly and responsive to issues. However, there really are too many issues for the price you're paying here, which includes parking fees and... More
