Not a fancy smancy hotel, but quite sufficient for my week long visit to San Diego. The breakfast area was nice and clean with helpful and polite staff. Short walk to all amenities, buses and trolleys close by.

Good free breakfast which included cereals, pastries, eggs, bacon, potatoes, juices and coffee in spacious restaurant two doors down from the hotel. Good room which was clean and had a great...

Walking distance from Little Italy, great area to explore all the italian eateries, from desserts, beer, wines, and food. We were about a 15 min walk...

My brother recommended this hotel. We had had previous not so great experience with Best Western, but this is the "best" Best Western! Well-located, near the harbor, train station, Little Italy and more. From the upper floors, you can see ships or the city and mountains. The international staff is helpful, professional and multi-lingual. (I loved that one young man...

Stayed here to catch up with some American friends. Very handy to shops and within walking distance of bay. Rooms are a little dated but large and comfy. Staff were always helpful and friendly. The bar & grill where our breakfast buffet (included in room booking) was served was on the corner not in same building as accommodation. Buffet was...
