This is a large complex of low buildings. The landscaping is pretty and well maintained. There's a nice boardwalk along the marina side. We stayed twice and both times were upgraded to a suite by the desk staff :) The suites have kitchen facilities, basic but comfortable and clean, and patios facing the water. The restaurant serves an average dinner and a slow breakfast. The hotel faces the water in front and behind. Rooms facing the harbour are more exposed to noise from the airport and the ... Read more

This was our final stopping point before flying home. I have stayed in a number of Best Western properties around the globe and always found them to be good value mid range hotels. This one however has changed my mind. Doesn't the Internet make everything look so good........until you get there and see for yourself! It's in an ideal location on Shelter Island for both downtown and the airport. I am afraid that's all the positives I will give it. Our room overlooked the marina. OK, that's anothe... Read more

Each time we stay at Best Western Island Palms on Shelter Island in San Diego we enjoy it. It's the first place we call each time we come to SD to visit or daughter in college. The only reason we ever stay at a different hotel is if we can find a better rate. That doesn't happen often. This place is a good deal. Period.

Hotel room and staff were very good and were as expected. Our primary complaint was with the in-house restaurant, the Blue Wave. Our dinner entre as served was not as spelled out on the menu and was not enjoyable. The restaurant is tired and need to be refurbished. We ate elsewhere during the remainder of our stay.

The room was clean and spacious. We had a mini suite. Beautiful area near the marina and bay. But, one could hear everything from the room next to you and every step from the room above you. Could even hear someone snoring in the room next to us. They really need to redo those rooms cause everything could be heard. The staff was fantastic. I loved the area and would like to stay again but I couldn't go one night without sleep again due to the noise.

What a great place, San Diego! This was our last stop on our month in the states, we stayed 3 nights. We staff we very friendly, we ate in the restaurant one evening and used the bar too. We were about 10 minute drive from San Diego, but we had hired a car. We visited the zoo, The Midway and went over to Coronado - very beautiful. We'd bought an ice bag and filled it each morning from the vending machine, this helped when taking packed lunches or drinks out for the day. The Disney cruise ship ... Read more

Loved the location and quiet atmosphere of being on the bay and harbor area. Great restaurants only a short drive away. Walkable even if you dont gave little ones in tow. Definitely will be vack as the short distance to seaworld is perfect for my family.

We stayed here for 2 nights and could not have asked for anything better. We had a great view of the pool and the marina on the ground floor. The room we had was a 2 queen with a nice area with a round table for 4 and a great little kitchen. We had a few questions at check out and we could not be happier with how Danny C. answered are questions and explained things to us.

We had a great stay at this Best Western Plus. The check in with Joey went great. Nice guy and was very helpful in showing us what was around for food and attractions. The location is a great right on the water next to the marina. The room was very nice and comfortable. We upgraded and had a nice room on the corner with ocean views. Wish we could have stayed longer. Overall, i recommend a stay at this hotel!
