Loved this small, well-located San Diego hotel. Charming decor, friendly and helpful staff and a nice rooftop patio to relax on made it a great experience and very good value. We were able to walk to the Rock and Roll Marathon Start and Finish lines, Petco Park for baseball, Horton Mall for shopping, Little Italy and Gaslamp Quarter for fine... More

Highest compliments to the owners and staff for a very nice setting and excellent service. The staff was knowledgeable and gracious. The breakfast lady was fantastic for her preparation and service. The rooms were just great for sleep and the upstairs roof top garden was nice for relaxation and a nice view of the city. Would highly recommend for value... More

Our stay at the Best Western Plus Cabrillo Garden Inn was absolutely wonderful. The staff was helpful and welcoming right from check-in.

This hotel had an excellent location and all of the services were exceptional for a person attending a conference at the downtown convention center in San Diego. If you are a walker the distance from the convention center to the hotel is a little over a mile, by taxi it is a little more than 3 minutes.

If you have to stay downtown San Diego, this is a nice, not too expensive place. It's easy to get to the Zoo and Balboa Park without having to fight the I-5 traffic. The place is cute, but modest, not sure it qualifies as a Plus.

This older but well maintained little motel was the perfect spot for our two-day stay in San Diego. The hot breakfast included a fine variety of choices, and includes an outdoor dining area when the weather is suitable ... which it is most of the time. This is San Diego! There is also a small elevator if need be to... More

Hotel is very well located for visiting the zoo and other highlights in the downtown area. Availability of parking, although pricey, is good. Room was well appointed but the king bed was a little too soft for our comfort. The free breakfast was well stocked with all the basic items including scrambled eggs, sausage and potatoes. Overall experience was excellent.
