We live in Southern California, and drive down to San Diego dozens of times a year, and if we decide to stay the night in town, we choose Old Town. My boyfriend and I have been wanting to stay at the Best Western Hacienda for quite some time, but the price for a standard room was way more than we'd want to pay for it; this time, we got a good price.
Check-in was quick and easy, and even though the property has many staircases and elevators, we had no trouble finding our room. The hotel must not have been too booked while we were there, because to our surprise, we were given a free room upgrade to a mini suite and it included a balcony. Even though it wasn't that big in square footage, the room had its own livingroom area, two flat screen televisions and a great view from the balcony.
The beds were more firm than I like but the pillows were great.
The property is kept immaculately clean inside the units as was as on the outside, and is beautifully decorated. If you don't want to pay $12 per night to park in their parking garage, there's free parking in the parking lot across Harney St (per the hotel) or you can park on Juan St, cutting through the Acapulco restaurant's outside eating area, where there's an elevator and stairs leading down to the hotel property. We were also given breakfast vouchers, but we only used the vouchers for the Acapulco restaurant, which had great food and a variety to choose from.
If we decide to stay in that area again, and the price is right, we'll for sure choose this hotel once again.
Also be aware that the hotel charges $7 per day 'Resort Fee', which I'm assuming covers internet usage in the rooms (and maybe the public areas) and the heated pool and hot tub.
The only minor issue I noticed in my room, was one of the electrical plugs near the AC/heater unit was not working, but I was still able to find plenty of outlets in the room to plug in my battery chargers.
