I stay here to take the shuttle to the medical clinic in Tijuana. The rooms are comfortable and clean, except for the carpets--they could use a shampooing. There is a nice body foam soap in the shower, so I bring my own shampoo & conditioner. The rooms in the back are much quieter than the ones in the front by... More

We were going over to Tijuana for a night out, but wanted to spend the night on the US side. This was super close to the border, and was perfectly comfortable. They allowed us a late checkout which gave us extra sleep before our drive home. It was great.

I was in a hurry when I booked this hotel, saw the San Diego address and didn't realize it's actually south of Chula Vista and National City. Oh well, can't really fault a hotel for its location. I imagine if you want to visit the outlets or Tijuana it would be nice. For Sea World and downtown San Diego it's... More

Yes it is true we are about 15 miles from Seaworld and downtown, it is a straight freeway shot so it isn't too bad of a drive, and we agree it is a good location for many south bay activities from the taking in a concert at the Amphitheater to visiting Mexico and during the summer checking our "Seaworld's Water...

We stay in the BW Americana for the shuttle to Mexico medical clinic. On other nights we stay elsewhere because we can get an equally good room for much less cost. The rooms are always clean and the service throughout the week is always very good. The staff is cordial and helpful when needed. We usually quite enjoy our stay... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable with refrigerators and coffee makers. They are also roomy with very comfortable beds. The morning breakfast has both quality and variety. This hotel is a... More

It was very clean not like other places and the staff as well as the other tenants were very nice. I would stay there again and I would recommended it to others. I felt safe leaving my family there wile I went to work it wasn't all sleazy. The pool was very nice as was the rest of the hotel.

You can't go wrong with a Best Western. We drove down from northern CA in the middle of the night and arrived at the hotel around 4am.
