This hotel is a great place to stay in San Diego. It's beside the marina and close to the downtown area. The room had a plenty of room, a huge tv and comfy bed. Central to other tourist attractions, and had lots of parking. A side note for Expedia members: this hotel is one of the VIP member hotels. When I first checked in the man at the front desk told me there wasn't any upgrades available which is fine, so i asked if free parking(after I booked this hotel because of the VIP status as an Exp...

We had a king marina view room and we loved it. The room was large with a nice balcony. Everyone was very friendly. We were able to walk to the other hotels on Shelter Island and listen to live music every night. I would definitely stay here again.

This was a nice place to stay and our room was large. They charged $10 for parking and we are used to having free parking at most Best Western motels. There were several options for breakfast for different prices. At least that gave us more choice than a Buffett since we could order smaller meals. Both the French toast and oatmeal were good. Both came with fresh strawberries. Service was good.

Came down to San Diego to spend the holidays with my son that is in the Navy. My family had booked two separate rooms due to the size of our party. Both rooms were excellent. One room had a mini kitchen with a refrigerator. It was a little smaller than a standard apartment size fridge. The only downside to the kitchen was that there was not an oven. Both rooms had excellent views of the marina and we were able to watch as one of the Navy ships were sent out on deployment. Food and entertainment... Read more

We have stayed at the Best Western Island Palms twice, and have throughly enjoyed both our stays! The location on Shelter Island is perfect and so beautiful and tropical. The hotel itself is somewhat worn and in need of updating. For instance, the plug ins for blow drying etc in the bathroom are terribly far from the mirror and only one plug in that can be used. The marina and surrounding common areas are beautiful, and the hot tubs very inviting, but the hotel itself pales in comparison to othe... Read more

After landing at 6:30am in LA and driving straight down to San Diego, we arrived at this hotel many hours before check in. We hoped to just drop our bags off, and find something to do while we waited for check in time later that day. The staff were so helpful! They could see we were tired and found us a room straight away - allowing us to check in early. We had a wonderful view, in a large room that had plenty of room for our family of four. We truly enjoyed our stay (the kids loved the pool and... Read more

My wife and I stayed two different times in December. We love the beautiful location and extraordinary customer service provided by the staff. We took a suite with a full kitchen. We had planned to eat several meals in, but the kitchen was poorly equipped. No knives, view pots and pans, no towels, no dishwashing soap or utensils, etc. So, we ate in the restaurant more often than planned. In typical Best Western fashion, the bathroom towels were small and very scratchy. If they're going to be a ... Read more

I booked this trip through Groupon as a weekend getaway. When I arrived I was very happy to see that we were in a great location just about 4 miles from Downtown San Diego. I checked in and was greeted by Danny at the Front Desk. Danny was very kind and helpful with checking us in. He had informed us that there were free bike rentals, pools/Jacuzzis , tennis courts, gym and restaurant on site. Danny had let us know he had rooms available with views looking at the marina and one on the bayside a... Read more

Our son surprised us with an overnight stay for our anniversary which he booked with Korrey at very last minute. She was so helpful and made sure everything was as he wished. We had a lovely clean, comfortable and quiet room with a view of the Marina. It was lovely. The next morning we had a delicious breakfast at their Blue War Bar and Grill and was waited on by Robin. What a gracious waitress. Our whole experience was so special; we would definitely think of doing it again!
