I was unable to get hotel for contiguous days over the long weekend. So I stayed over two best western hotels in Chula vista. This hotel was better in room and cleanliness. However, breakfast was not so good and checkout experience could have been improved. However staff was very good and they should be paid more (especially when we paid...

Thank you for the review. I will be looking into the check out to see if things can be adjusted for a smoother check out.

My husband and I wanted to take our three-year old to San Diego to go to the beach and the zoo so we were looking for somewhere simple to stay for our family. We spent three nights here and it was a great family-friendly and budget-friendly option. Simply staying in Chula Vista rather than San Diego cut our hotel bill...

They were doing construction so parking wasn't exactly great. But the lobby, staff, and rooms were as you would expect! Friendly, welcoming, and very accommodating. The bed was absolutely amazing! The only thing stopping me from rating this hotel "Excellent" was the quality of the cable. We were planning on bringing our laptops to watch our shows but decided not...

Thank you for the review. We do have a back gate that is open from 8 AM to 3 PM, so you can turn at the light right on the corner to avoid that turn.

The breakfast of this hotel is above average with warm food like scrambled eggs, sausages and potatos. It is convenient located close to one highway and local train station and walking distance to many restaurants.

Offers free HBO, but you couldn't get a picture along with many other channels including some basic channels. This made it a bit difficult with 2 children needing to be entertained. The free breakfast was very good and better than most free continental breakfasts I have seen.

The breakfast was amazing and so were the girls in there. The price was good, the beds were comfy! This location was close to all the activities my family and I wanted to do. Imperial beach is so pretty at sunset. The only thing i wish the hotel had was a hot tub by the pool.

Was staying couple of nights in this hotel. Noisy rooms, but otherwise ok. Trolley bells keep ringing once in a while as the train passes the area. It sounds very well to the rooms. Very limited breakfast. Every morning the same things. Plastic spoons and plates. Not so comfortable area.

BW was our choice for a couple of nights - 2 different locations. This was the 2nd night but still both places were clean and ready. The staff and both locations in CV were great. Often checked with us when out and about if all was good.
