We always enjoy our stay at the Best Western in La Mesa, CA It is an affordable and peasant place to stay and very convenient as our family lives nearby. The breakfast offered is delicious and a variety of options available for all dietary requirements The staff is very friendly and courteous.

Check in was very smooth and staff was extremely friendly and gave suggestions for local dining, etc., also received bottled water and fresh chocolate chip cookies upon arrival!! The room was large and clean. This is an older hotel so it is not perfect, but, it is kept clean and the rooms toward the back of hotel are very quiet....

After reading the reviews I decided to give this motel a try for 2 nights. TrueType, walking into the room makes you feel like you are in a more upscale hotel such as Hilton, Marriott. It is modern and updated furnishings. The bath offers very nice soaps etc. not made in China, like they are for Marriott and Hilton. But...

During our emergency visit to La Mesa, we had to find a hotel at the last moment. We were able to make our reservation on-line easily. We arrived late at the hotel but the front desk was extremely friendly and made us welcomed. Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was high quality.

This hotel is in need of work. Wear and tear is showing. The A/C unit in our room was loud and inadequate. It's in need of dual pane windows to buffer freeway noise. It's not up to par with other BW Plus hotels. Hotel staff is courteous. This review focuses on the facility.

The room was nice, it was clean and nicely decorated. The hotel offers plenty amenities, especially for the price. The staff on duty...Jessika and Emily... when we checked in, and through-out the evening was superior. These ladies were friendly and helpful which we appreciated in these days of indifferent customer service. These ladies deserve a big thumbs up, Thanks!!
