Nice clean room. Secure and quiet location. No complaints at all for the $99 package being part of a meeting.
The meeting room was sizable, comfortable. Again no complaints for the free meeting room which came together with the room packages.
Overall a very positive experience. We had a great productive meeting, in no small part contributed by the restful rooms and the meeting venue.

really hard beds, staff don't care to explain anything or even talk to you. shuttle to trolley was good, coffee bar would have been nice. oh! and housekeeping wakes you up at 8:30am not sure we would consider this hotel again Dennys across the highway was good, you can get a 10% off if you show hotel keys...but hotel "wont tell you".

We chose this best western for our San Diego stay as we were on a budget and trying to get all our hotels for £50 a night or less. Location wise it's so easy to find off the highway, and is a 10 minute drive from San Diego, maybe 20 from the Zoo, and 20 from the Mexican border or the Las Americas mall. Parking is plentiful, but if you don't have a car or want to leave it during the day - a tram stop is 10 mins walk away which will take you right it to downtown or to the border. The hotel runs a shuttle if you don't want to walk there!

The staff are so friendly and efficient - Oliver served us at reception and he was brilliant. He had all the advice we could have asked for and more.

Our room was huge, new, and well equipped. The only downside was the air conditioning which was very loud, but luckily we didn't really need it during the night. The hotels facilities were also very good, the business centre printed out tickets quickly and easily (not always the case!) and there's a decent pool and gym to use.

The two downsides for us were the lack of breakfast offered in the hotel - which we are used to in best western properties - and the loud noise from the live band who play in the adjacent bar on Friday and Saturday nights. It might have been extra exuberant because of the Memorial Day weekend but Oliver assured us we wouldn't hear a thing, and we could hear every single note and word - loudly!

I would suggest if you are visiting on a weekend to ask for a room that doesn't overlook the bar, or bring earplugs! Either way don't let it put you off as this is an excellent property.

I chose to stay at this hotel because of its location. Located close to our favorite beach {Coronado} and access to the major freeways also close by {but not affecting our stay} was a big plus. There are many other BW in our area, but, this one was the nicest. Clean inside and out, I walked my grandson all over so I know. Nice are to walk him, too. The room was large, a suite with two queens and a sofa bed. It also had a small balcony, some others had larger.

This hotel allowed us to have our pet with us and we were minutes from the border with Tijuana. It was very restful and convenient and we had a great access to our room from parking through the patio side door of our room.
