“A good deal overall”
Reviewed 7 April 2005

Stayed at the best western Escondido for three nights in March, 2005. Overall, a nice place. Found good rates at the best western website. Initially got a room that was nice and clean, but overlooked the trailer park. Felt like changing it for privacy sake. Front desk staff person was very accommodating in making the change. Hotel has great overall décor. Kids enjoyed the pool and the Jacuzzi after our commutes of the day to Lego land and San Diego Zoo. One drawback was the strong smell of cleaning agents/chemicals by the elevator and somewhat in the hallway as well. Continental breakfast was very basic, though the dinning area is nice. Will consider it for future stays as overall it was a good deal for my $$$.

I stayed one night on March 15, before a visit to the Animal Park. Very disappointed with the hotel. There were terrible smells everywhere, the elevator, the halls and the room. Toilet in the room barely flushed. Would not stay there again.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in April 2004. This is a bit more "upscale" than many Best Western hotels and looks like it is fairly new. Very nice landscaping & pool, with clean and comfortable rooms. Towels kind of thin and scratchy though. One nice touch is guest laundry facilities on each floor. Good continental breakfast. Not luxury by any means, but all in all, a very nice hotel for the reasonable rates they charge and probably a great choice for families. Best location if you are going to the Wild Animal Park... much better than driving up from San Diego in the morning! A short drive to the coast (Oceanside) and other nice recreation choices. If you stay in Escondido, try the La Tapatia Mexican restaurant... authentic old family restaurant with great food and service!
