Quality Inn Chula Vista San Diego South
Ranked #6 of 22 Hotels in Chula Vista
Reviewed April 30, 2013

I like this Hotel because it offers very close proximity to the San Diego Trolley, and from here you can get to almost anywhere in San Diego. I have stayed here in the past, however, all of the rooms have undergone an upgrade! The carpet and drapes were much improved and of much better quality than my previous stay. It doesn't look all that fantastic on the outside, however, with the upgrades to the room, I found it much better than before and a good option for me. There are lots of dining options close by also.

Least expensive BW we have stayed at recently. Nice, clean, quiet. I prefer BW places when I can afford them. Overall they have gotten really expensive... not this one. Lots of food choices close by. Close to Sea World. Nice Breakfast.. Nice staff. Has a small poolwhich was well kept.

Not horrible, but there is a great need for some maintenance on a number of rooms. The first room had a trail of ants, staff was not concerned and had no bug spray. They said they would need to leave a line item for maintenance. The second room needed to have the door pulled shut just to get the latch to release. You guessed it, the maintenance request. the next evening we checked and the day shift girl could not find either of those reports on the maintenance log.
The third room was ok.

We have been having many hospital stays recently for my spouse and I like to be nearby- this Best Western property is moderately priced and in a wonderful location. It is one block east of hwy 5 in Chula Vista at E Street. The location makes it very easy to get onto the freeway to get to Balboa Naval Hospital or Balboa Park. The rooms have been recently renovated and are attractive and comfortable. It is close to the Trolley station, however the trolley didn't bother us and the rooms are quiet. They include breakfast- waffles while you wait, four types of cereal, four types of juices, sweet rolls and bagels. They also had bananas, oranges and apples....hot coffee and tea as well. I was impressed.

Room Tip: there is a Denny's next door and across the street a MacDonald's as well as a Black Angus Re...

This place is pretty dated, things are worn, but it is clean. The price is very reasonable and the location is convenient by the blue line trolley is only 30 sec walk. There are many restaurant choices within walking distance too. If you are really fussy about have only the best this place will disappoint you. I look for value and location. This place is really great if you don't want to rent a car.

Room Tip: I like to be in the main building because I don't usually have a car and it is closer. The back...

Stayed 5 nights on business in and around the San Diego area. Clean rooms and staff was great. Close to HWY and places to eat. Breakfast was also, done well, clean area and wide variety of food and drink. The WiFi is disappointing at times when everyone is on early in the evening, but overall stay was very good. I wiould go there again.
