This facility was the nicest Best Western that I have ever stayed at. It was clean, spacious, and the staff was great. It can not be beat for the price! We had an event at the San Diego Convention Center, but everything near there was outrageous in price. This hotel was less than 6 miles away, and very close to...

My sister recommended this place and I'm glad she did. Easy to find off the highway plus many restaurants nearby. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The concierge are very helpful and professional. There is a pub next door that plays live music until 10 pm but its not really something that interrupted my sleep. Great service from...

We chose this hotel for rating and price and were glad we did. Very nice, clean hotel. Staff was very friendly and we liked that it was easy to get to and from where we wanted to go (had a rental car...not much within walking distance). We weren't too impressed with the restaurant next door and we disappointed that we...

We stayed for 4 nights in April & had a pleasant experience. Our suite was spacious and clean, with a location that has very easy access to the highway & not a far drive from Downtown San Diego. The pool was small, but heated, which meant we could swim even on a cool day. The staff was very helpful and...

Without hesitation, I highly recommend this hotel. Everything is worth top marks - facilities, cleanliness, service, rates. Any time that you pass by the front desk, they are not only ready to help in any way possible, they are very friendly. They have thought of so many little things that add to the comfort of the guests. If they haven't...

Very pleasant hotel,clean,good size room,good facilities and pleasant helpful staff,and the important one for me while travelling,solid reliable fast wifi. Close to freeway and public transport. Picked this hotel because of the reviews and was not disappointed. A bonus is Goodies Bar next door,where you can get a cold drink with the locals,and something to eat.

Check-in was fast and easy. The gentleman who checked us in even gave us recommendations of places in town to go for dinner, touring, and nightlife. All staff members we came across during our stay were very friendly. Our room was VERY clean when we checked in and throughout our 3-night stay. The pool and jacuzzi area was also clean,...

The staff were very helpfull. At check in the employee at the front desk informed us that the restaurant nrxt door has live music till 10:30pm and was wondering if we would like to change rooms. That was nice and the place was very clean. Pool was well kept and the cleaning staff were very friendly. Would stay there again...

The hotel was located incredibly close to the highway which made travelling in and out of San Diego super easy. What really made our stay was the helpfulness of Jeff who would offer assistance with where to go; where to eat and even helped us when our car began mis-functioning! Thanks Jeff :-) The room was a good size and...

Stayed 3 nights on a short visit to San Diego, and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent experience. Last year I had the misfortune to stay at another BW Plus location (Chula Vista/Otay Valley) which should be re-characterized as a BW Minus! This visit was the absolute opposite! The hotel was fresh and attractive in appearance, the room very clean...
