bed were firm but location and price couldn't be any better. The breakfast was great. This is a family orientated hotel. Very noisey due to all the small children having a great time. If you know this when you make your reservation then you will be fine. The noise level definitely went down by 11pm.

We had sat down to plan a trip to San Diego... We had planned 5 days in San Diego.. We looked at hotels and motels by the beach. We quickly decided staying on the beach was super super pricey. This Best western worked out great. Although it is not on the beach, it is an easy 6 min drive from... More

My son and I came from the East Coast stayed for 1 night prior to going to his surf camp in San Diego. I will admit I was a little concerned when we pulled up. The building appearance from the outside is a bit dated. We arrived early and were able to get into a room prior to 3pm check... More

I arrived in town unknowingly during a massive conference, so I called here with low hope of a vacancy. The staff went out of their way to shuffle a few rooms so I could stay the weekend in the same place. Very friendly and helpful, making me feel welcome as if I was a regular customer. The location is quiet... More

I guess the old saying "you get what you pay for" stands true. We got a room for 3 nights at a REALLY great rate. However, we hardly got to sleep at all while we were there. There was SO much noise every night we were there. The walls & ceilings at this place must be extremely thin. We heard... More

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, close to Sea World. Great BBQ place right up the hill about a 2 minute drive. Also 1 minute drive to Mission Bay Park. Only about 2 miles from Old Town. Extremely cold AC. Had to turn it to fan instead of cool.
