I went to a concert at UCSD and stayed at this hotel with my college-age son and his friend. We had two rooms. It was conveniently located, only minutes away, and significantly more affordable than anything right near UCSD. After we checked out we went to the beach at La Jolla and it too was only minutes away. The hotel... More

This motel is in rerious need of management attention. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly, but maintenance is lacking, basic amenities are in short supply and penny pinching is in evidence.

I'm a Best Western Rewards member and travel to San Diego quite often. I usually stay at the Best Western Seven Seas, but that was not available, so I opted for the Golden Triangle. I was a bit worried about the location, but didn't have much choice. Pulling into the parking lot there were several homeless types hanging out in... More

Horrible property with horrible service. None of the staff were friendly and/or helpful. During my stay someone tried to break into my room while I was sleeping. Told the front desk and they were uninterested. The room was filthy and the toilet ran incessantly. I told the front desk staff about all of the problems I was having in my... More

I always stay at the BW Golden Triangle whenever I'm in San Diego. It's centrally located to all the things that I love in the area. The staff is friendly and professional and the beds are EXTREMELY comfortable. The internet is easy and really fast, too.

While the hotel is centrally located with easy freeway access, the WiFi does not work hardly at all. You have to stand outside of your room to access it. The drawers are sticky, the headboard fell off the wall, the coffee pot leaked and the fridge needed repair. While I requested a non-smoking room, I got to walk through a... More

Everything apart from BED was good. My whole point of taking the hotel was good night sleep. But was not able to sleep for even 2-3 hrs because of the bed. It was tooo Soft for sleep. Even my wife complaint same. I weight around 190 lb and my wife is around 160 lb, so we are average in weight.

I stopped there because my son and I visited the San Diego zoo. It is very close just 10 minutes. The building is agly, the guy of the front desk isn't nice. The room is old. I did a mistake to book there

Being dirty....Not matching it's pictures...having HORRIBLE breakfast (quality and quantity)/Overall...worse best western... DO not, I repeat DO NOT stay here.... My friend found a hotel nearby for the SAME PRICE! It was Embassy Suites, his room was 10000x times cleaner, they did everything to make his stay great... I felt like a burden here more than a customer.

I always enjoy visiting San Diego. I have many friends there and lots of things to do. I always stay at the Best Western Golden Triangle because of the friendly people and comfortable rooms. I enjoy the central location and ease of getting around town from there.
