I stayed here because the cheap motel 6 I was staying at was trash. They didn't compare. I felt safe in the location and there was plenty of close restraunts. Also not to far from the beach which was a big plus! I will be staying here on my next visit.

Seniors comfortable overnight motel location near Mexico border and beach. If visiting Pacific Ocean at Imperial Beach, bird watching, San Diego city or Coronado Island, this is a perfect clean budget oriented but quality renovated Best Western Motel.

Rooms are clean and the cleaners do a good job everyday. Staff at reception are also very friendly. Great location to hop on the trolley. Internet is brutal, it is hit and miss. Fridge in room didn't keep things cold..reported this and they fixed it and worked for a day. We found people at the neighbouring stores were very friendly....

Everyone in a while issues arise and we deal with them to the best of our ability. We do preventive upkeep and maintenance on our rooms, to help these occurrences from happening. However, every once in a while we do get a leak. I don't know any of my staff that would be disrespectful. But if you felt offended I...

I found this best western to be just fine for a short visit to San Diego. The location just south of the city allows for a more affordable rate, while still close to downtown and all the beaches. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and breakfast was adequate. I will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic location south of San Diego but great as transit is just steps away. Decor is in need of updating, most other services were acceptable but not fantastic. If you have been to best westerns before this is slightly better than normal overall.

I do apologize for your stay. Our lobby floor was being remodeled so our lobby was closed for a few days as we did not want our guests to deal with all the dust from us pulling up the old floor. We did loose the internet during your stay as a important hardware piece failed and quit working. We had...
