This place is a bit dated. The amenities are not 'top drawer'. Is it comfortable? Yes. Is it convenient? Yes. Is it clean? Yes. Is the service good? Yes? We try to use our travel budget intelligently, and have realized that we don't spend much time (awake) in our room. We are out and about and seeing good stuff. We routinely rent a car (mass transit is CLOSE here) and we tend to sleep shower and rest only in our room, so we aslked ourselves, what do you really need? Our answer was reasonable cost, some amenities, access to roads (and Starbucks), a decent bed, a clean bath and pool and/or hot tub. These things are available for a reasonable cost, if you spend some time looking. We don't don't need expensive rooms, room service, gawdy baths, or high prices. This hotel met our expectations without any difficulty. Is it "excellent"? No. Was it good enough and inexpensive? Yes. I hesitate to compare to the Hotel Del Coronado, but then again =, we paid less than 25% of the cost of staying at the Hotel Del. The Hotel is a wonderful place, but we stopped there and had one beer each. Nothing exotic, just a coupla beers. With tip, $30. At the Best Western, there was a steak house across the street that feed us both, (we had steaks) inclluding drinks and desert for around $60, and it was very nice. I recommend this hotel, and this concept of reasonably priced travel, because in the end, I came to see other things, (Balboa Park), and spent my time and money there. Think it over. What do you want? How much can you afford? What is you real destination?
