My family love's the Best Western Plus Island Palms. Grounds are well kept, friendly staff, well appointed suites, 2 pools, close to fast food and restaurants. this was our second stay and will diffidently be going back. Being it is a BW Plus you usually get breakfast this property doesn't give a free breakfast. On site Blue Wave grill has great fish taco's.

Hotel's Favorite
My wife and I enjoy the quiet comfort of Shelter Island and especially the friendly staff at the BW Island palms. All employees have the "can do" attitude and go above and beyond to please their guests. The view on the bay side is outstanding and there is always action with various ships passing by. The marina side is quieter for those wishing that sort of thing.

This was our second trip to San Diego where we stayed at the Island Palms. We liked the first trip so much we came back to the same hotel. The location is perfect with the bay view on one side of the hotel and the marina on the other. Ideally located near the beaches, Balboa Park, Little Italy, Point Loma, the Embarcadero, The USS Midway tour and many other areas. Looking forward to our next stay.

This place was a great place to stay. It was clean, and the staff was super friendly (especially Danny). There were bikes available for us. The location is close to the water, shops, and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

at the first you see everything wonderful and very nice ......but going in to our suite was very stressing to have to deal with broken pipes and not being able to have our second suite ready. WE booked for 2 days the pool was very nice i guess becase is near by the lobby. The rooms definetly need to be renovated grand suite and queen suite. the staff was very friendly. But the owners need to get on renovating this plac asap. i took my family to have a nice vacation having "The best suites" so I thought and endup very stressing.....no vacation for me but my the kids had a good time in the pool! Need some complementary stays on renovated rooms if not i rather stay in a motel. Sad but true!
