Quality Inn Chula Vista San Diego South
Ranked #6 of 22 Hotels in Chula Vista
Reviewed 25 July 2006

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.

This hotel was great. The bathroom left a little to be desired but for a one or two night stay it was great. Also, get to breakfast early because there was not much left during the last half an hour. Cable TV selections were great and room came with DVD player, micro, and refridge along with coffee maker, hair dryer and safe.

Travelers staying here in the summer should be warned that the air conditioning in the rooms leaves much to be desired. The "window shakers" are positively ancient, they are in poor repair, and the coils are caked with dust. If the weather gets hot, or if you prefer a frosty room, you are going to be disappointed.

Other than that, this place is quite nice. As noted, the Best Western South Bay is next door to the trolley stop. There are all manner of restaurants ranging from basic to fancy within easy walking distance. And there's a grocery store and laundromat nearby as well. So it's definitely possible to stay here without renting a car while seeing the sights in San Diego or visiting Tijuana.

As for the rooms, this is an older exterior corridor property, but it is in excellent condition and the rooms I've stayed in are all updated in terms of the case goods, textiles, paint, paper etc. The TVs are nice and the selection of cable channels is superb. The pool is sparking and the staff is polite and helpful.

I would stay here again without reservation when the temps are mild. (Which is virtually always in San Diego.) But I like my air conditioning, so in the summer I would stay elsewhere. YMMV.

The Best Western South Bay Inn is a great little hotel (76 rooms) located directly next to the Bayfront/E Street trolley station. Being that it is so close to the trolley, staying here eliminates the need for a rental car. Rooms are average size and very clean. My room came with a 26 inch TV, refrigerator, and microwave and coffee pot. The prices are very good also considering it was the Comic Con convention week. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be staying there again the next time.
