Every time I travel for pleasure I always choose to stay at this property. It has the best rooms and amazing views. The staff is always pleasant and goes out of their way to assist me in anything I need. I will continue to stay here whenever I am in San Diego.

This was easily the cleanest hotel I have stayed in during the past year of travels. My room was spacious and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and there was a selection of pillows, so I was able to chose the best for me. This hotel is broken into different buildings, and I stayed in Casa Del Mar. I... More

We booked this resort for several reasons. 1. It fit within our budget. 2. We wanted to be centrally located and close to the airport. 3. They offer an airport shuttle. 4. They don't charge a resort fee. 5. They had the cheapest per-day parking fee we could find ($10/day). Brianna B was extremely helpful with our reservations over the... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Best Western PLUS. The room was clean and comfortable with a fantastic view of the marina. The check in staff was very nice. My room wasn't ready when I arrived so they offered to hold my bags until it was ready. They loaned me a bike and gave some suggestions of where to ride.... More

My family and I stayed here for my daughter's wedding on the beach. All I can say is, "thank you!" to the staff for accommodating us and for maintaining a beautiful property. The onsite restaurant was delicious food (we ate there twice), the patio is nice, the location is fabulous with lots to see and do. We walked, we paddle... More
