Decent rooms for the rate, friendly staff, very close to boarder, very basic breakfast, there is a kitchenette with microwave mini fridge coffee pot and small sink. Didn't get a chance to use the pool or hot tub but they looked nice.

If you like bugs crawling all over your room, other peoples mess left uncleaned and a rude manager please spend your money here. Hope that nothing goes wrong because they will try their best to not be helpful.

After doing much research for a hotel (if only for one night) we wanted a clean, safe hotel room. Also at a reasonable rate. Although for a best Western I found the price to be a little high, and being a card holder I was surprised they offered no discount rates either with my card or Military, or AAA .... More

I like the hotel with good amenities, the room is excellent and the breakfast is the best. The location is far from the city but close to the shopping outlet. The service was good and the staff were nice and friendly.

So, I wanted a fun night to party in Tijuana. I'll admit it. However, I didn't want to deal with the lines at the San Ysidro point of entry on a Sunday morning/afternoon (sometimes those can take 4 hours), so I figured if i crossed when I was done at the bars, I could take a taxi and stay in...

Stayed here during a long road trip down the west coast. Convenient location. Parking right in front of our room. Walking distance (just a few steps) to Coco Restaurant. Clean and spacious rooms. Nice architectural details, e. g. wrought iron railings. Fair rate. Continental b/fast w/out highlights.

Thought it would be a decent visit, I was wrong. Looks nice when you check in, but then we walked into the room it smelt really bad, after about 5-10 mins you get use to the smell. The first night we needed an extra blanket, went down to ask and the lady told me they didn't have any extra ones.... More

I decided to make a quick getaway to San Digo for my family. I chose This Best Western in San Ysidro. It's a a little farther than normal San Diego tourist places but the price was also lower. very Close to the Mexican border. Not too far from beaches. Every person from the front desk to the room service people... More

This is the best for going into Tijuana for treatment. My king room was comfortable, great bed, great shower, microwave, free WiFi, free parking and plenty of shops, places to eat near by. I always take my own coffee maker but they have a small one. The small fridge has a freezer compartment which kept my ice blocks frozen. I... More

Thanks you so much! You are correct it is not too far of a drive to get to most places, however if you are planning on going to Legoland or more North County attractions our hotel is too far South. We appreciate the compliments and hope you come back again! Take Care and safe travels. More
