Thank you so much for your quick yet thorough response! I am glad that our free amenities worked out for you including the parking and breakfast and I am glad that you enjoyed the room and spectacular location. We are in the midst of making several room upgrades so hopefully on your next visit you will be able to appreciate those changes as well! I will share with my staff that they are keeping up the super customer service we are known for and again, thank you for your response.

Stayed one night and parked our car there for a week while we flew to Mexico. Reminded us of a modern, European boutique hotel--didn't seem like a cookie cutter chain hotel. Nice harbor front location. Note that the hotel shuttle to/from airport only runs until 5pm.

Thank you so much for your response. I am glad that you were able to take advantage of our Park and Cruise offers as we love our cruisers and provide complimentary shuttle transportation to and from the cruise port on arrival and departure. We are also looking into extending the shuttle hours so thank you for feedback regarding its hours. Lastly, I am glad that you enjoyed the true character of this unique hotel and its beautiful harbor front location. It is a true gem here in San Diego and we strive to be different than all of the other chain hotels in the area.

Never been to San Diego before and couldn't find a hotel that was reasonably priced in the downtown area. Luckily, this hotel was about an 7minute drive to the downtown area and was close enough to all the attractions like Old Town San Diego, Sunset Cliffs, Mission Beach and the Zoo. Not to mention the airport was 5mins down the street. We had a 'Harbor view' room with 2 queen beds which were very comfortable, and a nice balcony that overlooked the water. The room was quite dated, although it was very clean! The tv was big, the shower was great and the breakfast was pretty average. The hotel had lots of parking and offered a computer to use for free. The pool was nice & clean, although it wasn't exactly private as it was located along the main road - sooo we never did go swimming. The hotel staff was also very sweet and knowledgeable! The pizza restaurant across the street was also very delicious! No complaints.. a nice stay for a few nights.

I needed a place to stay for 2 nights prior to taking a cruise. The location was perfect (even from the airport, approx $13 with fees). There's 24 hour establishments (restaurants that deliver, Frank's Grocery Store, Winchell's Donuts, a couple fast food spots) all within walking distance. The room has basic amenities (refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, iron & ironing board, 40" flat screen, nice TV channel selection, well lit, ice machine down the hall). I'd definitely stay here again. The only thing that isn't too cool is that the shower curtain is too short and water gets on the floor. If it wasn't a curved shower bar, I think the curtain would stay in the tub.

We stayed here twice - a night before and after a vacation in Ireland. Typical for a Best Western. The rooms are well priced for this great location near the airport and the harbor. Breakfast is above average. The rooms were clean except for hair (ugh !!!) in the top dresser drawer on one stay. We will stay here again on trips to the airport. Underground parking.

The hotel is located on San Diego Bay, beautiful harbor scenery across the street. The location is ideal for a San Diego visit. The hotel has very convenient parking in a garage beneath the hotel. The staff was friendly and professional, and the buffet was crowded but well stocked with the usuals.
The bad: the rooms and fixtures were very worn with deep gouges in the sink, and small cheap towels you expect in a budget motel. Our water pressure was poor on the third floor, it must have been non existent on the sixth. The WiFi was non existent in the rooms, despite numerous attempts to repair it. We noticed people checking out because of this, and others using their computers in the lobby. We had a strong signal from the Holiday Inn next door, but no password.

Even tho the motel is a little outdated the overall experience was great. Good breakfast and the man in charge went out of his way to make sure we were all satisfied. Bed was great and balcony great place to sit because the weather was perfect.
