Our room was located right in front of the pool so there was a little bit of noise at night but it quieted down by 9pm. The beds were comfy and overall the room was nice. We only stayed 2 days so we decided to pick up after ourselves. Breakfast was so good!!! There's even a make-your-own-waffles station!! The lady... More

We stayed here on a Friday night and found the room to be clean and in good repair. Comfy bed, TV & Internet worked OK. Did not use the pool. Breakfast in the AM was good...hard boiled eggs, waffles, and the usual assortment of breads & pastries. Even at 9am, breakfast buffet was full of food. Room was very quiet...no... More

My family was on a road trip from Salt Lake City and stopped at Sea World for 8 hours prior to checking in. My children were very tired and hungry. The kind evening desk staff gave great recommendations for dinner nearby, a deli across the street with excellent pizza and sandwiches. Breakfast attendant kept it well supplied with good quality...

We really like to stay here. Perfectly close to SDSU Campus, decent breakfast and good price. Had an issue with noisy housekeepers one time. Let the front desk know about it and didn't have a problem again.

Was only in San Diego for 3 days and wanted a reasonably priced hotel. Had a look around various sites and the reviews for this hotel were all fairly good. The location was OK and a short walk to the SDSU transit station for trains to the tourist spots and downtown. Very friendly staff on the front desk and at... More

This place was awesome. I went on a business trip and was surprised by how friendly the staff were. I walked away having new friends. The room was clean, quiet and had the view of the pool. I was happy to be here and would stay there again!

We were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel, though older style with exterior doors facing parking lot, was well maintained, clean, and has a beautiful pool area. The room was great for a week-long stay with full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. On a busy commercial street near SDSU campus, it was quiet and comfortable at night. Nearby residential...

My daughter was visiting a friend at SDSU and my husband and I decided to tour the area. The Best Western is very convenient to the University. The hotel was clean and the staff was very helpful. However, they are currently constructing a high rise multifamily facility directly in back of the hotel - it was a bit noisy due... More
