The BW at Golden Triangle is a great place to stay-- comfortable, quiet and easy to access. Friendly people and great service. I always stay there when I'm in San Diego. It's only 10 minutes to downtown and less to UTC.

Stayed here several times for work and once with the family. Main reason for choosing the property is the excellent location relative to where i need to be and the clean rooms. No pool for those with children but they do have a fitness room with a small sauna. New breakfast room is nice.

Great place to stay, staff is friendly, rooms were great including the size of the room, breakfast is very good. I will return again in the future for my many trips to San Diego. I left an item in my room after checkout. The staff assisted me with retrieving the item.

My house was been tented and needed a place to stay. Found this hotel online. The rate seems reasonable and the location is near my house. As I was pulling up, the curb appeal was a bit out dated but seems to have been updated. I know it probably does not make financial sense to re-do the entire exterior. It's... More

Every time I talked to her it seemed like she just wanted me to go away. Their were cloths In between our bed and our mattress... More

Minimal amenities but really good room, excellent position, great value, and direct access to Northern area freeways. Breakfast is very reasonable with the usual cereals, toast, juices, coffee. It is quiet, and readily accessible to freeways. I like to park outside my door, and walk to the Janapese restaurant just footsteps from the Hotel - one of the big reasons... More

I'd give this a 3 1/2 if I could. However it doesn't qualify for a two star facility rating...it's closer to a 1 1/2. The rooms are small and feel like an entry level apartment. Everything is clean, though, and the bed and bedding is very good. Bathroom was very bright and clean. The A/C's low constant rumble is typical... More

This hotel was OK, maybe even a little better that OK. It is located right beside the 805 freeway, which was cause for concern. Truthfully, I didn't hear a sound once inside the room and the A/C set to low. Downtown was less that 15 minutes away(with no traffic jams) via the 805 and then the 163. Sea world, about... More
