“A Bargain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We needed a place to stay near the airport. The Best Western Mission Bay is not a luxury hotel but it's a great place to stay. The price for 3 people in a room with two queen beds was a real bargain!! The free breakfast had all kinds of choices and was really a brunch. The service at check in and check out was very friendly and helpful. Next time I need a hotel in San Diego I would definitely stay here.

This hotel is good if you just need a place to stay or if you want to be close to Sea World. Our room was't cleaned completely. We were given a room that wasn't finished being cleaned as housekeeping was still in the room when we pulled up to it. The rooms get a lot of noise from ajoining rooms.

This was our third time staying at Best Western in San Diego and we have always received great service each time. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly, the pool area is fun for the kids and the breakfast is good. If you book early, you can get a really good price online also.

I really wanted to give this hotel a good review because the sales manager gave me a very good client support.
My company tried them out for the first time last weekend.
The good:
1. the sales manager took care of us and she was very professional.
2. the hotel was conveniently located.
3. Breakfast on Saturday morning was very good.

The bad:
1. there was an older guy at the reception the night we arrived who did not know how to answer very simple questions: "how many of the four rooms my company blocked have been paid for?" How many have been already taken? He said he did not have that information. It game me the impression that he was just there to check-in people. Nothing more.
I should add that there was no body else waiting to be helped when we arrived to the main desk.

2. the breakfast on Sunday morning (second morning we stayed there) was a mess. Too many quests roaming around in a very small area.
Food ran out and it took the kitchen more than 10 minutes to bring out more food. All I found during this time was hash browns. That's totally unacceptable and a show of poor planning and execution by the kitchen team.

3.the carpet in our room was filthy.

We may give this hotel another chance. Who knows. But for the money we paid we feel that we deserved more service and value.

we stayed 3 night and saved $ on their web site, old type motel but the rooms were clean and updated. the breakfast was the most amazing thing considering they gave a large selection of hot and cold foods. they have an elevator so we choice a room near the ADMIN OFFICE,IN A QUIET CORNER. they have a functional pool & hot tub. free parking , located in a commercial area . with a car all attractions are all close by. For what I paid it was a deal. we rented from sixt got a fantastic deal for two weeks on line.

Room Tip: u should know to stay away from highway and ice machines.

Friendly and efficient staff made this hotel a delight to stay in. The room was cozy and comfortable. The breakfast had lots of selections, both hot and cold, as well as my favorite flavored creamer for my coffee. I just wish the bath towels had been softer.
