Seniors comfortable overnight motel location near Mexico border and beach. If visiting Pacific Ocean at Imperial Beach, bird watching, San Diego city or Coronado Island, this is a perfect clean budget oriented but quality renovated Best Western Motel.

Rooms are clean and the cleaners do a good job everyday. Staff at reception are also very friendly. Great location to hop on the trolley. Internet is brutal, it is hit and miss. Fridge in room didn't keep things cold..reported this and they fixed it and worked for a day. We found people at the neighbouring stores were very friendly....

I found this best western to be just fine for a short visit to San Diego. The location just south of the city allows for a more affordable rate, while still close to downtown and all the beaches. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and breakfast was adequate. I will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic location south of San Diego but great as transit is just steps away. Decor is in need of updating, most other services were acceptable but not fantastic. If you have been to best westerns before this is slightly better than normal overall.

I travel like 4 times a year to different cities and had very nice experience with the hotels that I stayed in, It was the kind where you dont wanna go out and just stay in the hotel because its very cozy and you feel at home. And these hotels are just less than $100 per night. I usually dont...

The only good thing about out stay at this hotel was the guy who checked us in. He was super nice and accommodating, but practically everything else sucked. The breakfast area was not ventilated well, so there was a horrible smell that made my partner gag so much we didn't even eat. The sheets had a lot of stuff in...

The slowest internet since dial-up, bathrooms falling apart. Could not even get email, and some devices would not even connect. typically google would take minutes to load. The bath tubs in both rooms I was in were flaking apart. The water was tepid, not hot at all. I was supposed to stay 7 days, but left after 1. Hotels.com was...

I do apologize for your stay. We are getting ready to start our bathroom renovations. We will be replacing our tubs and surrounds. We will also be updating our internet. Since so many guests tend to use multiple devices, signals tend to drop at times. We are making every effort to improve our services for our guests.

The rooms are old and the smell in the room was horrible. They said is 100% smoke free, but the smell in the room said otherwise. If you have other options on hotel go for it. Stay away from this location.

Our rooms are 100% smoke free. We do charge incidentals for guests who decide to break the rules. If we do find a room that has been smoked in or a guest complains that the rooms smells like smoke, we ozone the room and deep clean the room to remove the smell.
