After my last experience with a BW, I was a bit leery, but since Costco members get a discount and I had previously had a good experience with BW Woodland Hills, I thought I’d take a chance. This was the first stop on a two stop trip. The next stop would be the Woodland Hills/Van Nuys area of California. We...

This hotel is a little farther south from downtown but with very easy access to the highway. Plus - great service, nice concierge . Modest but comfortable room, with "wake up" bugle call in the morning (from the marina) around 7 o'clock - we liked it. Overall very pleasant.

My husband and I were in National City to be close to a family member having open heart surgery. I needed help with so many items such as "extended stay", a second room to take care of the patient upon release, laundry facility, directions, so many things. Jeff Moser was especially so caring and helpful. I will forever be grateful....

I was a little skeptical booking and staying here for a family vacation to San Diego. It was great and I would go back. No beach nearby but if you have a car everything is within 10-15 minutes. Clean, updated, friendly!!! Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and places to recommend.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful. Informed us about noise on Friday and Sat. nights from restaurant across the parking lot, and then quickly switched our rooms to the back of the hotel when I said it would be an issue. Overall, trouble-free relaxing stay.

3 adults stayed 5 nights in mid April on a family vacation. Pros: The location was convenient to the airport, downtown, Balboa Park, etc. because of its easy interstate access.
