The hotel was very nice, breakfast excellent, loved the 3rd floor view, pool and rubber track. The wall scape was unique. The view from up there was outstanding. Loved watching the planes coming in low for a landing. Rooms were perfect, ladies very nice and friendly. The hotel's most amazing asset was the concierge Shraddha Carlin she took an interest...

Despite a rather outmoded appearance this turned out to be a great hotel. Clean, comfortable, nice staff, quiet and convenient. And WiFi is free! My room was large, the sleep was good and the bathroom/dressing room adequately appointed. The location is good. 10 min walk from the Amtrak station, 15 min to the convention centre. Top of the gas lamp... More

Our stay at the Westgate was wonderful. The hotel is beautiful inside, and the rooms are huge. We had a balcony overlooking the track and pool, and some of the cityscape. The pool was nice, basic but served its purposes - I liked that it was a rooftop pool. The service was great. I really have no complaints. It was... More

The Westgate Room restaurant in the Westgate Hotel lobby is a terrific place to stop for lunch. It is a favorite of local business folks. White table cloths and excellent service. You can get in and out quickly -- or -- stay for a long leisurely meal. The staff make you feel special and never make you feel rushed. The... More

I recently stayed at the Westgate hotel for 7 nights for business. The hotel is amazing. I was first booked at the Holiday Inn Express nearby, and disliked the hotel, so I checked out the following morning to move here. The rooms are VERY clean and extremely comfortable. The interior design may be a little old school, but everything is... More

Driving up this is a 60s Bauhaus looking building but when you walk in the lobby has a warm old feel to it. The staff is attentive and courteous. The room was well appointed and very clean. I did not choose this place as it was for a meeting but I think it was a good choice. The most under... More

We stayed at this majestic hotel for five nights at the end of February The location is terrific for exploring downtown San Diego on foot. The room was very spacious and was very luxurious. We could walk to Petco Park, Little Italy, and the Gaslamp was right there. Highly recommended.
