Nice, welcoming and definitely convenient to UDSU. Good isolation .... Even if it's very close to the freeway is not noisy at all! There are at least 3 restaurants within walking distance.... More just less than 5 minutes away. Friendly, helpful staff.

Very friendly and polite staff. Neat and clean room. Excellent breakfast. The pool location wasn't good, so we didn't get to use it. The laundry room and breakfast both on the same floor I was staying, it felt like home. I throughly enjoyed my stay in San Diego.

I've stayed here many times and always find the employees to be the best in service and helpfulness. The hotel has been renovated and is in much better shape than it was as a Holiday Inn Express. Close enough to downtown, Trader Joe's, Barnes & Noble, World Market and a movie theater. Breakfast needs some upgrading -- down with the...

Rose at the front desk gave me hella cookies. Breakfast was great. I spent 3 nights at this Best Western and they never minded when I spent time using my laptop in the lobby. The staff was very friendly, and always made sure to say hello to me as I passed them on the way to the elevator.
