For San Diego visitors (esp to the annual Comic Con), the BW-South Bay offers affordability and great proximity to the Blue Line trolley stop and local eating joints, including Aunt Emma's which features excellent breakfast specials.
The hotel's staff is also very nice and helpful, but do not expect much in the way of perks. The AC is iffy, and my roomie and I had to go without basics like shampoo for one day. But overall, I had no real complaints about South Bay.
For the record, though, despite the added expense I will stay in downtown San Diego for next year's con. After a long day on one's feet, there's nothing better knowing a nice, cool hotel room is just nearby.
