I recently stayed at the Americas Best Value Inn in downtown San Diego to catch some Padres' games. The lobby area is small; but did have some small comfortable sofas. I wasn't expecting much when I first entered my room; but was pleasantly surprised. The room was small; but very clean and had all the amenities you would need. Flat-screen TV with numerous channels, microwave, fridge, coffee maker with coffee, and iron with ironing board. Good sized closet. The bathroom was also small; but no problem in moving around in. Large shower - no sink in the bathroom but this was OK as there was a kitchen style sink in the main room for brushing teeth, shaving etc. The hotel appears to have undergone major renovations recently and everything appeared new and that word again - clean. Comfortable bed with 3 pillows. A bus route ran right by the hotel heading toward the downtown area with easy connections. The hotel is not actually downtown per se although it is titled as such; but more to the North in a quieter area (close to Balboa Park) and a mile from the Gaslamp area. Still a pleasant walk to the downtown area for someone of average fitness or hopping on a bus if you don't have a car as I didn't. Now for the bad news - this hotel is close to the airlines' flight path and you can hear planes flying close to the hotel. Surprisingly you get somewhat used to it - at least I did - and the flights are less frequent the later it gets; but I also used my earplugs when I went to bed. Very pleasant and relaxing courtyard with a fountain, benches, and numerous aromatic plants. They also had a complimentary breakfast; but I didn't partake of this service so can't comment. All in all great value for the money and if you're not looking for something extravagant; but for a serviceable and clean place this is it.
