“Don't stay here unless you don't use internet”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

This motel (can't rate it as a hotel as it was so poor), had the worst internet service ever. I was told the second day there that people with Mac computers always had trouble with the internet. It was so bad that I finally ended up going to a McDonalds and using their internet service. The only redeeming feature of this Best Western Continental Inn was that they had a very nice night clerk who tried hard to get the internet working, though it never worked for longer than 10-15 minutes at a time.

One of the best deals in the San Diego Area. Within a short driving distance to the beaches as well as the casinos. Older hotel but well maintained. Comfortable rooms with very comfortable beds. Next to freeway but I did not find traffic noise to be a problem, Friendly staff. Recommended....

I stayed about 4 nights in June 2013. Room was clean (important to me). Rate was reasonable. They had a breakfast, but like most Americans, I don't eat much breakfast ... and don't go eat it just because it's there. Internet was good. Room was well-maintained. Hotel was easy-in, easy-out. Good convenience store next door. No parking issues. Late night clerk very professional when I checked in. Nearby shopping easily accessible. Denny's or Denny's-like restaurant within walking. Seemed a secure area. Interstate (or big highway) ramp within 1000 feet, but didn't notice any noise issues. Greeted housekeepers who seemed professional. Will return if in the area. Quite place that you could bring your family to.

The breakfast was excellent. Sausage made to order while the attendant was very attentive. Made the price very reasonable. However, turn on your AC because it's next to a freeway and it's a little noisy, but not bad. Will come back again!

we had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. Rooms were very clean, breakfast was great and they even had waffles! We were there for the comic con, and even though it was crowded we had a pleasant time. our rate was way cheaper than what a hotel in San Diego quoted us! we were very pleased with the service, and all the staff deserves a big thank you!

Room Tip: second floor rooms have a balcony!

The shower was terrible, sometimes hot and sometimes cold. I had to fight with the shower. The room's odor was funny and the carpet is not washed for several years. The breakfast is poor and if you want a sausage you have the right to "order two".
