“Excellent stopover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

This motel, located about midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, provides an excellent stopover. The staff is extremely friendly, the accommodations are comfortable, the beds are good and the rooms are very clean. Restaurants are located nearby.

Really nothing special about this one. It is the quintessential SoCal motel--swimming pool in the middle of the parking lot surrounded by basic accommodation. Very slow WiFi. The beds have only a very thin blanket, which can get a little chilly on a foggy San Diego night.

Stayed for 6 nights at this friendly motel. Easy access to/from Interstate 5, and all San Diego attractions/beaches within a short driving distance. Spacious room, comfy bed, fridge, micro. Supermarket/shops, etc. 5 mins up Clairemont Dr. Housekeeping was punctual and efficient and a more than adequate breakfast was included in the room rate. Staff at check in were especially welcoming. Free parking, and not too much noise from traffic, stayed on 3rd floor. Pool was nice and refreshing and the hot tub was lovely!

We were cheerfully greeted in the lobby by Bill. While checking in he gave us a list of popular restaurants and a brief description of the area. He was a great help. This Best Western is easy to drive to with ample parking at no charge. It only took us ten minutes to get to Sea World from the hotel. The breakfast had a good selection including eggs, bacon or sausage. They also offered cereal, yogurt and a variety of breads.

It was an incredible stay that I would pay double to stay in this hotel. The staffs were very helpful, friendly, and the breakfast changed everyday during my 4 days stay. The young lady who works in the breakfast room greeted to each one of the guests every morning. The room is small but very clean and has everything you need. Will stay again for sure!
