We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The rooms are basic no-frills but clean with plenty of room. I had a nice pool and Jacuzzi area with a friendly staff. It was close to everything and had a much better breakfast than I had expected. Waffle station, donuts, toast, muffins, yogurt, breakfast burritos, potatoes,coffee, cereal and more. For $79 after-tax...

The hotel is a short walk to the Mission Bay park/trail system, and is a perfect budget choice. Save your money for doing things and restaurants. The pool, exercise room and hot tub are small, but adequate. Breakfasts are a step up from the usual inclusive fare. The windows open part way, which brings in fresh air.

Stayed here with a buddy while in San Diego. It is convenient off the freeway, but there are not many retail amenities in the area. The fitness center itself could have used a good scrub down. The free breakfast was filling though we do without the weird breakfast burritos. They should really clamp down on their parking lot at night...

We had a great stay at Best Western Mission Bay. It is located right off the highway and in a great central location whether you plan to visit Mission Beach/Bay Area, downtown, or even Coronado or La Jolla. The front desk was very friendly and our room was super clean and comfortable!

This hotel was not what I expected. The staff was nice and friendly. Easy check-in and check-out. Asked me which floor I want.

There was a large variety of breakfast items and each item was always full no matter what time I came to eat. The A/C and internet worked well. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The staff and cleaning people were always smiling and friendly. It was quite and the repair guy came immediately. We had a great stay.

The staff was very friendly and eager to please. The room was nothing special, nor anything to complain about. Considering its convenient location, it was a very fair price. The free breakfast was more than expected. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
