Stayed for a night on business and this best western is great! Manny at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly! The room I got was extremely spacious and it was clean. The hotel had a good workout facility, a pool, and I saw a little golf section (very small though!). There is a restaurant right across the hotel...

no view of bay/marina and no smoking out on balcony but it was very clean and accommodating. the pool area was need and had plenty of towels. i would have liked to check in earlier and check out later. if you call a hotel marina location you would hope to at least have a view of the marina.

We stayed here for two days while waiting for a cruise to Hawaii. The room was large, clean and comfortable. It's near a busy highway but our room was very quiet. The one negative is that the vending machine wasn't working and my exhausted husband had to go to seaeching for another one. Even so, I would stay here again.

When we got there on Christmas day the hotel didn't have our reservation. They had a room with one king bed but we had reserved a room with 2 queens. Our son & his wife were with us. The hotel offered a twin roll away, but that was just not acceptable. So, we payed for another single king room, as...

We stayed here with our two children for 5 days. The rooms are nice and private. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The kids spent a lot of time in the pool and hot tub. Great location right off of I-5.

We booked two night. One side of the hotel is busy high way 5, so we chose a room on the other side. At night, there was low frequency mechanical noise. It was difficult to fall asleep then the whole family got waked up at 3AM, lying in bed till the morning. Then we checked out. At the beginning, I...

The Marina Gateway hotel is one of the nicest Best Westerns I have stayed at. The staff is always professional,helpful and nice. There are a lot of amenities, even a practice putting green. The lobby was decorated very nice for the holiday's too.

No doubt this is a great hotel in the city of San Diego, but what really makes it a stand-out is the staff. They are second to none. Have you ever tried to check in to a hotel and the staff are more interested in talking to each other rather than taking care of you? That doesn't happen at this...

Friendly, helpful staff- Easy to find , right off the freeway-I was able to get 3 rooms next to each other and they were exceptional and clean. The only thing that would have made this better is if it had a continental breakfast-( there is a Restraunt next to the building and you do get 15% off but the service...
