If you want a hotel that is a great value, is very clean, has a great bed, and is in a very convenient location in San Diego, look no further. We stayed here 7 nights. My only complaint the whole time was that the comp'd breakfast needs some kind of meat (bacon, etc). Everything else - no complaints. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Stayed her for a couple of nights and it was very comfortable. Rooms were huge and we had a lovely balcony overlooking the marina. Pool area was nice and caught the sun most of the day. Breakfast was good and included; bagels, cereal, yogurts, eggs and the amazing bagel toppers!! Location is a little out of the main area and you would need to drive in. We booked the trolley tour with old town trollies and they have a pick up service that picks you up from the liquor store in the hotel next door ... Read more

We had a upcoming weeding in S.D. in June, so I booked a room through Expedia because it was the best price that I could find. The room was booked in April and not last minute. So the weekend of the weeding we went to check in and was very surprised with the room they gave us. It was on the first floor next to the elevator, lobby, vending machine, maids storage area, maintenance room, and breakfast room!

Landed late in San Diego and chose the hotel and what a nice place to stay. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Very quiet and continental breakfast had a good variety. Underground parking was easy and safe. Highly recommended if you need a place close to the airport.

Great Location across from yacht harbor. Free parking and most room have a view. Breakfast is a little more than continental and bed mattress was really GREAT. Staff are very helpful. Easily can walk to many restaurants within a quarter mile and a very scenic walk. The main street the hotel is on is a little busy in the early morning but again the value of the hotel is tops.

Nice hotel. Breakfast is 3of 5 but coffee is 0 of 5. The rooms are clean and the overall feeling is that it os just beginning to show some signs of age. The hot rub and pool is a nice addition but it is on the street and noisy. The parking is world class self parking.

Nice view that is it the staff was not friendly at all, when we came in the staff acted like what the hell do you want, all they cared about was did we have a reservation well sorry to say we did, would have rather stayed at a no tell motel, the room was dirty and needs updates the cost for a place to sleep was awful for such a dump the view was the only good thing about this hotel,so save your money sleep in your car. Will never stay in a Best Western Again.

This hotel was perfect for a trip to San Diego. Close to everything and an easy drive to the major sites like the USS Midway, Zoo, beaches, museums, etc. Free parking made it a good choice over the downtown hotels. Rooms are a little small, but certainly larger than most European/other countries' hotel rooms. If you do San Diego right, you are not in your room very much! Pricing was reasonable for the location and season. Room was clean and decor nice. The staff went over and above to ... Read more

I stayed two nights on a trip with friends, and it was a really positive experience. I especially appreciated the airport shuttle, which was free and nice. Helpful, pleasant staff. I also had friends staying at the same hotel, so I had a chance to see several rooms and get feedback from multiple people in our group. The pool looked nice, but we were too busy to use it. It does border right on a busy road, so while you can see the harbor from the pool, there is also nothing resembling privacy, ... Read more

This was a nice place to stay for a couple of nights. It was convenient to the airport. The facility has a pleasant pool which was nice after a hot afternoon of sight seeing. The room had a balcony overlooking a marina. The mini fridge was noisy, but we just unplugged it to stop the noise. Also the bed was way too soft as seems to be the trend in hotels now.

With regards of the staff, very professional, friendly and cared for your needs. The hotel was very well kept, clean, and odor free. Some issues with the room, like balcony door not sliding freely, water pressure and temperature fluctuated, pages missing on the guest guide, besides this, Great Hotel, that is the reason why while in San Diego I only stay at the Yacht Harbor.

This is what you expect in this hotel chain. No surprises in the rooms, it's clean and good as usual. However a few things didn't work out for me. The hotel is quite noisy, next to the road and the airport.... Expect to hear planes landing or taking off, or motorbikes and trucks. The fridge in the room is also noisy, and there is a kind of timer that makes a clocking noise all the time on the fridge. That adds up to the noise from outside. I had only 3 towels for 4 people.
