The hotel lived up to Best Western standards that we have come to expect. The room was comfortable and attractive; we appreciate the refrigerator and microwave. Breakfast was in the restaurant next door, but still convenient. It was plentiful, extensive and well staffed. We chose price over location but turned out to be walking distance to city sights and the Red Car. And it is short walk to Little Italy that has great restaurants. The staff members at the reception were helpful and always available. Huge windows gave good views and there's a small, usable balcony.
We would stay here again if we return to San Diego.

Room Tip: We asked for a room on a high floor and got a great view of the waterfront.

I spent a fun weekend with several friends at this hotel. It was in a great location. We could walk to the Gaslamp and Little Italy sections of San Diego in a matter of minutes. Shuttle from the airport to the hotel started out a little shaky when we had to wait an hour for pick up, but the very friendly driver made up for it. He even gave us a ride to a tour location so we would not miss it due to our late arrival. The room was clean and the morning breakfast was great! Our room had a great view of the bay. I would definitely stay here again!

For the price, this hotel was everything that we could have asked for. The location is very close to the airport, the cruise terminal and also within walking distance of restaurants in Little Italy.
The shuttle service was very efficient. They were there to pick us up at the airport within minutes of us calling them and also took us to the cruise terminal whenever we were ready.
The complimentary breakfast was buffet style with hot and cold choices and served in a very clean and comfortable dining area.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful during our whole stay.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable.
I would highly recommend this place for budget minded people who want a convenient central location and great friendly service.

We stayed at this hotel before leaving on a vacation to Maui, HI and upon returning. The hotel is in the downtown area a couple of blocks from the ocean front. We found it efficient and clean with nice accommodations. We needed a place where we could leave our car for the time we were in Maui as well as a place to stay before and after our trip. This was ideal as it is near the airport and does provide transportation to and from during many of the hours of the day. As we were leaving and arriving at times when the van was not running, the hotel arranged a taxi ($10) to pick us up. The staff were helpful and courteous. We will stay here again when we return to this city.
