Best western is always a comfortable stay away from home. The only issue I've had is some don't take cash at all or prepaid visa/debt card s. Otherwise breakfeasts are almost always fulfilling and rooms as well as pools great cleanand comfortable! Jet tubs are the best!

We flew in for a family emergency. The staff was helpful. The room was clean and a very comfortable bed. We rested well even though our emotional turmoil. The pool was bus enough for 6 kids. The breakfast was great and filling. We plan to use this hotel again.

I am being generous to give this motel an average rating. The main reason being that we had a quiet room - even though it back up to the freeway and freeway onramp. Bed was good - so a good night sleep. Last cleaning of the room was terrible - rug was vacuumed in a very hit-and-miss fashion. Clock did...

This hotel is within an easy 20 minute drive of downtown San Diego on most weekends. The hotel is a little older but the staff does a good job keeping it up and nice. The breakfast is simple but good and if its not what you are looking for there is a Denny's across the street. Overall my stay was...

After trying to find a last minute hotel in the San Diego area on a very busy weekend, that wasn't a flea-bag hotel, we found The Best Western Continental Inn, El Cajon. We were very pleased with the friendly welcome by the staff and the cleanliness of our room. The room was super clean and the beds were very comfortable....

This summer, my family and I decided to go to San Diego for our small, but well deserved get-away, so, I booked at Best Western taking advanced of their promotional rates. Well, it has been the best decision made ever. From our quick check-in to our fast check-out we felt appreciated and welcomed. The receptionist accommodated our needs providing us...

Very sketchy guests. Definitely a motel. Decent breakfast. My friend had a cockroach in her bathroom and I found dirty clothes in my dresser drawer. The rooms were okay. Comfy bed and surprisingly pretty quiet.

We were in crisis as evacuees from wildfires. Everyone on staff treated us with empathy and kindness. Relatives were able to pay from long distance. The clean and comfortable room was a welcome respite. We would stay there again.

The rooms were clean and they provided breakfast. We stayed in a suite which was a single bed with a pull out. There were no extra blankets and pillows provided for pull out like in other hotels we have stayed at, kind of a pain to have to ask. The breakfast area is a joke. It is very small and...
