I've stayed at Best Western Plus Hotels in the past, this one is extremely disappointing. The bedding was dingy and I question if the sheets had any been changed. It's located in an industrial area, so lots of traffic and the walls and windows are not well insulated. I've had quieter rooms near airports. In the wee hours of the... More

We stayed at this hotel for a girls weekend out of the heat of the Arizona Desert. What a gem it was! We frequent San Diego and often stayed on Hotel Circle. The hotels there are busy and charge for parking, and while convenient, don't live up to the price you pay. Marina Gateway is right off the freeway, far... More

The hotel feels very clean and the heated pool is really nice. We have really enjoyed our stay. The parking is free and easy, convenient location, close to highway. There is no free breakfast. The heated pool is above 80 degree and the hot tub temperature is good as well. My kids really enjoy the pool and the pool temperature... More

Literally a minute off the main freeway makes this hotel a great springboard to explore San Diego at a lower price than similar hotels in main areas. Actually getting to this hotel is easier due to less congestion which we experienced often in the city. The rooms are spacious, clean and staff seem friendly. Plenty of free parking. There is...

I enjoyed my stay at Best Western Plus Marina Gateway Hotel in National City, CA. The facility is new, clean, well kept up and beautifully landscaped. The rooms are spacious, pleasant, quiet and comfortable. Family Friendly. Great place to relax. Nice pool and exercise room, a pleasant place to walk around and enjoy the views. A short walk to several... More

This was a decent hotel. Check in was nice and quick. The elevators were broken and only one worked so that took a while. Other than that there's a restaurant right next door that is decent. The room was clean and comfortable.

Always enjoy our stay at this hotel. Staff friendly and accommodating! Clean and comfortable rooms. Free parking - always a bonus! Restaurant on site - convenient! Short drive to other restaurants and markets. Not far from border as well as other San Diego attractions!

Although this hotel is a little pricey for most Best Westerns I have stayed at, it is worth it. The appearance of the hotel is very nice. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful. The double queen I stayed in was large enough and everything I required was available. Even though they serve no breakfast, the Goody's Pours and... More

I booked this hotel for my stay during Comic-Con 2016 (Jul 20-25th). From the beginning to the end of my stay I received nothing but helpful and friendly service. This also includes when I called days earlier to ask a question about my reservation. Friendly service over the phone. My room was comfy and clean. And after walking around downtown... More
