“Great clean place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Very friendly staff, Very clean rooms. Breakfast was very nice. I had to switch rooms because i booked the wrong size room and they did everything they had to to get me into a room that worked for me. My room was cleaned every day with no problems. the pool was nice and refreshing after a long day at the beach and exploring San Diego.

We chose this hotel without knowing anything about it except that it was reasonably priced and within 18 miles of SeaWorld. We arrived at 10pm. Checkin was quick and we received all the information we needed for our next day. Room had a fridge (yes it was on) and microwave and plenty of room! When we went for our continental breakfast we were pleasantly surprised to find not only the simple foods like cereal, bread(s), fruit, and juice, but also a waffle maker, which the staff made for us, as well as sausage made when you arrived (meaning it's not made ahead of time and sitting around) and hardboiled eggs. The experience was what we needed after some of the hotels we had stayed in during our 2 week vacation! The staff was always friendly and helpful, everyone of them. Yes I'd stay here again when I come back to San Diego.

polite staff, great breakfast service and clean room. Right off the I8 so very convenient to travel by car. Good value for the money but internet is very slow and constantly disconnected. Room had a bit of odor.

I chose this hotel as it was close to the wedding I was attending. The area was not great & the hotel was run down. Rooms need an update or at the very least a really good cleaning!! Our door would not lock when we closed it from the outside, you could just push the door open.
Not a safe feeling considering my 8 month old was with us. I would not stay at this hotel again.

Poor service, poor room, dirty, close to freeway, door didn't lock. Didn't address the problem. Would not recommend nor stay here again. Would stay across the street at the Quality Inn. Don't stay here, horrible, the worst place I have ever stayed.

Great location, helpful, friendly staff, willing to help in any way. Nice room and great price. Only 10 mins to the beach and Mission Valley, Old Town area. I will stay here again. We stayed in the Jennings Suite,(2nd time staying in a suite at this location.)

I searched for rooms for the weekend with reasonable prices and the Best Western continental Inn was a good choice for the price. I received a discount with my AAA membership and the quality of the hotel was worth what I payed. I will definitely stay again.
