Hotel's Favourite
Super cute, well cared for property. I loved the rooftop deck, although only 3 floors up. It was nice to have a spot to sit outside and relax, and this hotel had several outdoor spots to sit. It was within walking distance to so much entertainment, and such a short easy drive to so much more, such as Sea world and the zoo. The continental breakfast was great, with a lot of options. The Host kept the hot food coming and always made sure we had enough, and what we needed.The rooms were clean and updated, beds were comfortable, very nice. I appreciated the fact that I was able to park on the premises, so I has easy access to my vehicle. There is also a lot across the street. This place was a Great Value. I Definitely will keep this as my go to place, and look no further.

I loved this place. Although it's part of the Best Western chain, it's like a boutique hotel. Small, two-stories, not a lot of rooms and best of all, quiet with nice rooms. I admit I drove past the driveway the first time but there's ample parking and the front-desk staff, and housekeeping staff, are first-rate. It's very centrally located, near the Gaslamp District and the hotel includes a nice breakfast. And the price is great.

Whittier, California33 contributions24 helpful votes
After reading the other reviews, which I regret not having done prior to booking, I had two major concerns regarding parking and noise level, both of which turned out to be non-issues; however, a plethora of other concerns arose pretty much immediately upon entering the room. The room is tiny, and two parents and two teenagers trying to co-exist in the space is a challenge. We had to use the ironing board to add extra counter space for our belongings. The crappy wall AC unit blew directly on us while we were trying to sleep, so we had to block it with a suitcase. The “closet” is a nook in the wall with a curtain. The bathroom is so small that it’s even a challenge to get dressed in. Water from the tiny shower leaked all over the floor, so there was definitely no way we would plug in anything in the bathroom for fear of electrocution. The television didn’t work properly, so the front desk person was in our room late at night trying to fix it; he couldn’t. The next day they tried again to fix it, though it still was a challenge to figure out how to actually do things like adjust the volume. Having two hotel staff invading our space during this was creepy and unnecessary if they had been in the practice of checking their equipment before checking in guests. The rooftop terrace is nothing more than a slab of concrete with dilapidated furniture on it and looks nothing like the picture representing it online; that photo is one of the reasons I chose this place, and it ended up being deceiving. The price we paid for the stay, even though it was below the average room price for the area, was absolutely not worth it. Never again will we consider staying here.

Dear Ms. Monica, we appreciate you taking the time to write this review. We are very sorry to hear that you did not meet your expectations. We apologized for the issues that you had encountered and I agree we always practice to check all equipment in the room before renting. Every time housekeeper is done cleaning they always turn on the TV and check the remote to make sure it is working well. We did ask permission before getting in to your room. We would appreciate if you let us know that you are not comfortable so we will have it done at your convenience. We apologized about having two people in the room and for that same reason other staff had to excuse herself and let the other finish. Be assured that it's not the kind of experience we wanted you to have while at our property and we do understand your dissatisfaction. Once again, I would like to apologized for the inconvenience.

Not enough parking for guests. If you are not early you have to park on street or off scene parking. There is only one handicap parking space. The cleaning staff is very noisy. The area is very noisy constant traffic and sirens. The cleaning staff roll around with carts that are extremely noisy. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS LOCATION AT ALL. I AM SURPRISED BEST WESTERN IS ASSOCIATED WITH THESE TYPES OF ACCOMMODATIONS.

Thank you for sharing your recent stay. We apologized that you were unhappy. The parking situation is stated on the website with a limited space and a first come first served. For that reason that we only provide one space for each room. Just so happen that we were booked that day but on a regular non busy days, we can provide extra spot to whoever needs it. Our housekeepers starts cleaning at 9 am because we always consider guest who wakes up late. We apologized if you are still on bed later than 9am. We would appreciate to let us know so we can inform housekeepers to be more quiet when they are outside of your room. I hope you consider staying with us in the future.

I'm a gold member with BW and I can tell you this hotel misrepresents the chain and tarnishes its reputation. It's nothing more than an overpriced, old motel (the towers in the background are not part of the hotel). It's located in a very noisy intersection and has no special windows to keep the noise outdoors. To top it all, the place is infested with MICE! There are many other hotels within walking distance that offer a much better experience. STAY AWAY!

Right in downtown San Diego, with parking, roof top terrace and clean. Rooms are dated, but overall a good value. Breakfast is good with lots of options including warm. The staff was friendly and very accommodating, bathroom was functional, but very small.

This location sits on the edges of downtown San Diego. It's quaint and quiet. The breakfast satisfied our tastes and the entire staff was warm and friendly. We initially believed that being downtown we would encounter loud noises, however to our surprise it was quiet and cozy.

Lovely Lovely Hotel surrounded by High Rise Buildings - flowers and calm sitting areas outside each room - easy walking distance to downtown San Diego. We WILL Be Back! Shout Out to Victor at the Front Desk in the afternoon - Very kind, great customer service, and gave great ideas for things to do within walking distance - we stayed an extra day!!
