This hotel is located next to Little Italy and a 6 block or so walk to the bay. Our room was quite comfortable and clean. The staff were all friendly and service was quick when we needed something in our room. We were impressed with the accommodations.

We stayed here while in San Diego to see our son graduate from boot camp. It's close to MCRD and right in the heart of the waterfront/downtown area. The hotel was undergoing some renovations but that didn't bother us and they should be finished by now. They have an onsite parking garage and a restaurant that wasn't too bad. The...

Great location, nice and clean. The beds were comfy. The room was a bit small. I liked that it had a balcony. The restaurant is next door. Breakfast was OK. Walking distance to the ocean and Little Italy. The Anthony's seafood place on the water is really good.

I reserved a block of rooms for a family reunion. Ms. Cornejo, Director of Sales, was very helpful in that process. The family members were all quite pleased with the accommodations. Comfortable beds, very clean property, friendly staff, hotel shuttle to and from the airport, and a hot breakfast buffet. These were all elements that helped make our stay enjoyable....

Pros - Walking distance to harbor, my kids enjoyed the park a few blocks down from the hotel. We enjoyed the awesome fireworks in the San Diego bay from the comfort of our balcony. Would stay there again.

This is an old hotel with a wonderful, responsive staff. However, we had several issues. The first two rooms we were given reeked of cigarette smoke. The staff was kind enough to move us to a third room. We had a lovely view of the harbor, but the summer sun made the room very hot in the afternoon, despite air...

My wife actually booked this Best Western thinking it was actually on the bayside. It is several blocks off, but walking distance to everything. It is just a few blocks from San Diego’s “Little Italy.” This Best Western has just been remodeled with plenty of advantages. One of the fine services of this hotel is the airport transportation which is...
