Very nice place to hang if you need to be in or around National City. Very clean, spacious, lovely staff, good quick food at their restaurant (not fast food!). Internet is quick and reliable. Ample parking and pretty centrally located.

If you're looking for first rate customer service and value look no further than the Best Western Marina Gateway in San Diego. Their front end service is simply better than the BEST, they will knock your socks off with service!!!! And the value of the hotel is "spot on". Walking distance to the adjoining restaurant and bar is a bonus....

If you have young kids, DO NOT consider this hotel. NOT KIDS FRIENDLY AT ALL. We booked this hotel because it has good review but it turned out to be a terrible experience. Our flight delayed and by the time we got to the hotel was already 10pm-ish. After we dropped off our luggage, we had to go out and...

I have been staying here for the last year, 3 days a week. Unbelievable staff, from the front desk to the cleaning staff. Highly recommend this place. The rooms are always in tip top shape every time. Parking is great, with room for large vehicles like campers as well. Not to mention a restaurant right next door. Leroy

My sister recommended this place and I'm glad she did. Easy to find off the highway plus many restaurants nearby. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The concierge are very helpful and professional. There is a pub next door that plays live music until 10 pm but its not really something that interrupted my sleep. Great service from...

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...
