Great value and employees
Pools and hot tubs, free tennis and bikes, waterfront location and price. Restaurants nearby.
Bathroom door couldn’t be left open and there was no fan so it was hot and steamy. Parking too expensive for location
Very nice hotel
Location is great. 15 min drive to downtown. Quiet area. Beautiful views. Good sized room. Fridge and microwave. Facilities are nice....pool and hot tub. 2nd time staying here and would stay again.
Loved it! I will definitely return.
The views of the water...the overall location...friendly staff...lovely comfortable room with private patio...very good restaurant & bar
Will stay again!
The staff was friendly, the views are great... try to get a second floor water front even if it’s a bit more price wise. Beds are comfortable, lots of pillows. The room we stayed in had a king sized bed, had a mini fridge and a microwave. We would definitely recommend to friends and family!
The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. The view was nice.
The beds were hard and my back had a negative reaction to it.
Amazing view and wonderful stay
He best western had a beautiful view of the marina and the room was very clean. We traveled with a one year old and they provided a crib. There is a playground across the street which was great. This is in a perfect location. Isolated from noise and congestion so you can enjoy the peace and beauty of the marina. It is close to gas lamp, pacific/ocean beach, and sunset cliffs. Will stay there again the next time we come!
Don't expect early check in. When they say check in is at 4, it's at 4. But at least the location is in a great area so you can go eat or go walk around Belmont park
friendly staff at check-in great room and view of marina comfortable beds/pillows great location at marina and close driving distance to downtown good area for morning run complimentary bikes and tennis equipment pool was heated and jacuzzi was nice and hot
further than I thought from downtown but still great location $10 to park car
Location to other fun places to visit, Nice pools and view of the waterfront.
Bathroom sink needs attention room 401, noise from Navy base.
Nice but walls and doors are paper thin.
Nice clean location with great view of the marina.
Had trouble sleeping and relaxing with poor sound proofing. We could clearly hear the people speaking in the room next to us with very little privacy. The entry door to our room also had a large gap at the floor which let in light and sound.
Had a super upgrade
We were upgraded from a double queen to a junior suite that was very large. Comfortable beds, fluffy towels, frig, m/w, toaster, utensils and dishes, dining table w/ 4 chairs, 2 other chairs and a desk w/chair. It was in the Casa del Mar building. Lovely walking path along the harbor, exercise room (with tv, but make sure it's plugged in. I didn't catch that the first time I tried) and pools (didn't use). Did not eat in the restaurant as we have family in San Diego where we ate. It's in a good location for us. Some streets in San Diego change names at intersections you might not expect them to, so review a good street map before you set out. Airport very close by, but wasn't bothered by jet noise - maybe they just go over my daughter's house. :-)
Bathroom fan quite loud, but it was never on for very long. We were on the street side so our view from the patio was bushes and cars. We weren't there to sit on the patio and if I wanted to see the sailboats all I had to do was walk to the marina side. No breakfast included, but with family in the area that was o.k. plus there are plenty of other choces for breakfast if you don't want to eat at the hotel.
Room -crappy bathroom, loud AC, horrible /no view
Great place to stay!!
