“Short Stay At Hotel 7/15/14”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for the main purpose to go to the San Diego zoo. We were very pleased with the hotel. The staff was very friendly and professional. The room was very clean. It was very quiet at night. (no outside noises to keep us awake). The only problem we encountered was there weren't any decent restaurants within walking distance. We had to drive to find a place to eat dinner. Overall we liked the hotel and would stay there again.

Doesn't do a good job of meeting Best Western standards. My standards aren't that absurd -- for $180 a night, I expected fresh coffee and flavored creamer at breakfast, a wake-up call at the time I asked for it (never came), high-speed internet service that doesn't shut down or drop down to 1-2 bars when it's on.

A/C was poor. Toilet leaked. Bed was uncomfortable. Over priced. Office staff blamed B/W corporate for their actions which caused us grief. Water on walkways from leaking A/C units. Most B/W hotels that we have stayed at are of much higher quality.

If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel to spend a couple of nights, it's an ok kind of place. Close to the freeway, lots of places to eat nearby, and not too far from tourist traps. One thing that bugged the heck out of me was whenever I would touch the top of the dresser or parts of the table next to the window, it felt sticky. I don't know if they weren't wiped off or it was the finish on the furniture but sticky in a hotel is never good. The surrounding area is a little shady so I wouldn't stay there with little kids unless you happen to be a kung fu master or UFC fighter. Even then you might want to PACK or at least carry a bat. A liquor store across the street and a strip joint down the road give you an idea that it's not exactly a community watch neighborhood. If you can hold your own and don't have a fear of lowlifes, you should be okay.

This Best Western property is located within close driving of many San Diego attractions. It has the convenience associated with an informal motel. When we arrived, our request for a ground floor room had not been granted. After some discussion, we were given a handicap room on the ground floor. The room was clean, had good interior lighting, a relatively quiet air conditioner on the outside wall, and good counter space in its bathroom. Parking was cramped in the parking lot fronting our room, requiring extra caution in maneuvering our compact car. Construction was going on during our stay, but even at night noise from outdoors could be heard inside our room.

We frequently stay at Best Western hotels, and among them, this one rates as only average. It was functional in terms of beds and cleanliness and provided breakfast with good coffee, but there was nothing out of the ordinary in any of the amenities. The parking is very tight, and the hotel is right on a busy street. There isn't much of interest in the immediate locale.
