One night was enough for us. The room was clean, and that's the nicest thing I have to say about the place. The location is convenient to the 805 freeway and on Clairemont Mesa Blvd., but that makes the traffic noise intolerable. The pillows were hard as rocks, and the stench of air freshener was sickening. On this trip we... More

Request were not met. Treatment was rude and uncaring. Reservation was for ground floor due difficulty walking as we both use canes. We were put on third floor in the very last room causing difficulty breathing. Have medical condition COPD.

This was the worst hotel / motel that I have yet stayed at in the US. The place is dated, tired and close to I5 as well as a big street and as a result I heard the traffic noise all night. The floor on the third level was breaking up and looked terrible - as was the rest of... More

This Best Western needs a major upgrade. The outside of the building needs to be painted. The elevator needs to be inspected. The walkways to get to the rooms on the upper floors need to be upgraded. Since the front of the hotel faces a busy street, the windows should be upgrade to filter out the noise (double paned glass... More

We have stayed here many many times due to their location in relation to where we want to go. The entrance is on a busy street just west of an off-ramp from the south 805 freeway. Traffic has gotten so heavy in San Diego that trying to get into their driveway while people are barreling along at 60 MPH has... More

We stayed here on a road trip from Dallas and got the room online for $80. So we didn't expect "luxury"- it was a large room and it was clean. The bathroom was clean with a tiny shampoo, no other "travel" toiletries. Plenty of pillows and comfortable bed. Plenty of towels that were clean but rough and some way worn... More

The location is great for me. It's within walking distance to a relative, eating places,and groceries. A freeway is easily accessible. A gas station is just across the street I did not find any bugs The room looked and felt clean and the towels were of a decent quality My car was parked for two days and it was fine,... More

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.
