The rooms were very clean. The breakfast was good, the outside grounds were very clean. There was also a friendly staff. If ever in San Diego again, I would stay at this location. The front desk clerk even allowed us to check in early.

Outstanding rates and excellent breakfast selections. Easy access to and from the I-5 freeway and within 5 minutes from Sea World and 10 minutes from downtown San Diego. If your looking for convenience and within 1/2 mile from a supermarket center, this is the place to be. Thank you.

This Best Western is right off of I-5 and across the freeway from Mission Beach. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Parking is a little tight as we had to park in the overflow lot after arriving late on a Saturday night. The breakfast was good with a variety of items which was kept well stocked. The breakfast...

Although we only used the hotel for a short period of time, we found the hotel was clean and affordable and close to beach. The staff was efficient and helpful and very quick to respond to our request. Breakfast room was clean, well-stocked and refilled quickly during the breakfast hours.

The place was overpriced for what we received. There was garbage under the bed, and what looked like a small blood stain on one of the blankets. Gross. I would not recommend this to anyone. What is more disappointing is that we are Costco members. I think Costco should not back this hotel. They give you 10% off. It was... More

We were awoken too early both days of our stay. When we asked the maid to return no so early, our room never got made up. We returned after being gone all day to find the room untouched by the maid. They did offer to make the room up then, but we were tired and wanted to rest. That really... More

We just left after a 2 night stay. The location was decent and a 5 mile drive from Sea World. But the surrounding neighborhood was a little ghetto. Was hoping for more of a Hotel Circle atmosphere. The beds and bath were clean but the carpet was filthy. After our showers we went barefoot and within 5 minutes our feet... More
