Tub was cracked and peeling, cable TV was pixelated with poor signal, room keys had to be reset EVERY DAMN DAY of our 4 night stay (which is a HUGE pain in the butt when ones hands are full and one must walk down and across the entire lot of three outdoor buildings to get to the front desk)--I should...

I was unable to get hotel for contiguous days over the long weekend. So I stayed over two best western hotels in Chula vista. This hotel was better in room and cleanliness. However, breakfast was not so good and checkout experience could have been improved. However staff was very good and they should be paid more (especially when we paid... More

My husband and I wanted to take our three-year old to San Diego to go to the beach and the zoo so we were looking for somewhere simple to stay for our family. We spent three nights here and it was a great family-friendly and budget-friendly option. Simply staying in Chula Vista rather than San Diego cut our hotel bill... More

They were doing construction so parking wasn't exactly great. But the lobby, staff, and rooms were as you would expect! Friendly, welcoming, and very accommodating. The bed was absolutely amazing! The only thing stopping me from rating this hotel "Excellent" was the quality of the cable. We were planning on bringing our laptops to watch our shows but decided not... More

Thank you for the review. We do have a back gate that is open from 8 AM to 3 PM, so you can turn at the light right on the corner to avoid that turn. More

The breakfast of this hotel is above average with warm food like scrambled eggs, sausages and potatos. It is convenient located close to one highway and local train station and walking distance to many restaurants.

Offers free HBO, but you couldn't get a picture along with many other channels including some basic channels. This made it a bit difficult with 2 children needing to be entertained. The free breakfast was very good and better than most free continental breakfasts I have seen.

The breakfast was amazing and so were the girls in there. The price was good, the beds were comfy! This location was close to all the activities my family and I wanted to do. Imperial beach is so pretty at sunset. The only thing i wish the hotel had was a hot tub by the pool.
