When I normally hear the best Western name in hotels I think low budget, bare bones. But the Island Palms changed my mind. The employees could not be friendlier and more accommodating. Always a smile and eagerness to serve. Kudos to Dale, night auditor who went out of his way to solve an issue& with a big smile.
The Casa Mar rooms were exceptional- island decor, free wifi and throughly clean. Plus the incredible marina view from your patio. The reason for 4 vs 5 is the paper thin walls, very hard bed & noisy A\C - but the rest was so good I can forgive a little these negatives. The restaurant had excellent food & service. Good happy hour drinks & food specials in lounge.
While not ideal location for business events at convention center downtown - if you're in SD for vacation don't stay in Mission Valley - Island Palms excellent for all SD has to offer by car.
