Chula Vista Inn
Ranked #13 of 22 Hotels in Chula Vista
Reviewed June 26, 2008

While the location is off the beaten San D path (and on a varied commercial roadway) it worked for us to visit family in east Chula Vista and also head north for the San D sights. Manager and staff were great.

the inn is set at a convenient place. downtown san diego is a few miles north and mexico is just less than nine miles south. the inn itself looks presentable and its quite bigger than i expected. the customer service is welcoming.

Didn't expect to find such a great hotel in a not so good neighborhood. The hotel was CLEAN and BIG. THe beds were wonderful. The breakfast was great and they have internet service until 10 pm. It is right next door to Carl's Jr so you could walk over if you need something to eat. They staff was great to us, very helpful. There are buses that will take you into Tiauna. We liked our stay and are glad to recommend it.

I read the preceding reviews and was at first a little nervous at staying in a seedy area. I was lost trying to find the hotel, but the agent who answered my call directed me with a few bumps. Check in was very smooth and professional. The hotel room was very clean and everything in working order. There was plenty of channels on the TV and a lot of parking available in their lot. The towels looked like they were very new and the beddings were clean without any blemishes. I did not have any of the breakfast items because none of the agents said anything about it at registration. Coffee was OK in the room. I don't know if I would stay here again, but it was surprising that a property that went through a renovation like this would actually sink some money into nice towels and upkeep the rooms. If they can remind their guests about the amenities at check-in, they would be more professional. Only noise that I heard late at night were some return guests coming in from a night of partying.

I read the trip advisor reviews prior to booking this hotel but I liked that it is close to Tijuana and San Diego without the cost of San Diego hotels. My reservations some how got "cancelled" but they tried to accommodate us. The neighborhood is not as bad as some reviewers stated. The ice machine was broken both days of my stay which was frustrating but one of my rooms had a fridge/microwave in it so we made do. The pool is very small and should have been balanced better with chemicals, but no need to use the hotel pool as there are several great beaches nearby. The rooms and furnishings were typical hotel chain drab. The hotel is definately in need of a face lift but to their credit work was being done while we were there. The bed was comfortable. The hotel offers free wireless internet and continental breakfast which is a plus for budget minded traveler, however, if you want any breakfast you better get there before 9:00 as there apparently isn't enough available for the number of guests.

Was here 01/26/06. Check in took over 20 mins and we were the only ones in line. They tried to double charge me for both my rooms. The key card never worked for one of the rooms and I had to go back and forth from the office to the room door 4 times until they finally moved me to another room! We left for a couple of hours and when we came back the other room key card wouldn't work! The TV's do not have remote controls, the towels are like sand paper, in both rooms the bathtubs paint was chipping everywhere and the non smoking rooms smell like they were smoking rooms at one time. All morning long the smoke alarms would go on and off in all the rooms. When I talked to the manger in the morning she was in the middle of getting her hair done and acted like I was unconvincing her. (She was the only one working the desk.) For all my trouble I would get 10% off my next visit. I told her to keep the 10% I was never coming back.

Chula Vista is not the best area of San Diego. But it's where you'll find the cheaper motels. Have stayed in another hotel down the street, and was a dive. I think the Best Western name gives the hotel a "relatively" higher quality. At the internet rate of $49, it was a good value, if not a steal.

There is another Best Western in Chula Vista just off the interstate 5 exit, but don't be confused by that one; looks a little more upscale? This motel is on a main drag, with other motels, the mall, and lots of shopping.

The motel is old, and many of the room fixtures and outside things are old and getting run down. But the room was relatively clean. They had coated the tub (?) and it was chipping off; which made it look dirty, but appeared clean. Soap and shampoo is minimum, one sink. Amazingly the mattress and pillows were firm and appreciated them. Stayed in Residence Inn in La Jolla later that week 3-4 times the price and they're bed stunk.

Staff seemed nice and helpful. What's expecially nice is a continental breakfast; unusual for this price of motel and location. Nothing hot, but toast, nice fruit and cereal. Room it was served in was styfling hot. Didn't try the pool, but seemed OK. Some of the clients were a little scary looking, but hey, . . the neighborhood and the price. . what can you expect.

I'd recommend this hotel for it's value. In San Diego, you won't find anything cheaper and for this quality. Minimum step up would be $80+
