We just returned from a six day stay at Best Western's Island Palms Hotel on Shelter Island, San Diego. We very much enjoy SD and have visited there 10-15 times over the last 20 years. Of the many places we've stayed I don't believe we've enjoyed any as much as the Island Palms. The combination of Shelter Island, many close attractions and restaurants and a well run, comfortable and cozy hotel was perfect.......and an excellent value. We'll be back here on our next SD trip.

My second time to stay at this hotel. I love the location on Shelter Island. Enjoyed the tennis courts, bikes, and nice pools. Wish they had a free breakfast, as it gets pretty pricey to bring my family, but overall enjoyable. The hotel lobby and the room smelled musty when first walking in, but I do enjoy this hotel.

This is about the fifth time we have stayed at this Best Western. We keep coming back so that speaks for itself. Great place for our baby girl to play with the ducks and watch the boats coming and going. Close to everything and quiet and we feel safe as it is secure and has parking.

Cesar at the front desk was awesome. he went above and beyond to give us the perfect room. the views of the marina were great. the room was spacious and the beds were super comfy. the lounge was ok sadly not all employees ie (Theresa) was not as friendly as most of the staff is. overall we would comeback again.

Room Tip: get a room with a bay view or marina view, its worth the extra montey.

This hotel has it all. Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent restaurant and other restaurants within walking distance if you want to get away. The views are spectacular of the Bay and massive marina. We have been staying there for over 10 years and would never consider staying anywhere else in San Diego.
