Customer is only right if you put your foot down

Pros: Close to the freeway so easy to get around.
Cons: desk staff training
Location: Close to downtown San Diego and Gas Light
I had to cancel plans I made for a Brewery tour and eat that money to deal with room problems. When I first arrived and got a room, we did a walk through and found the tub infested with ants. Ok so I figured ant's not their fault completely. I went to the desk and ask what could be done and was handed a broken can of raid. I was like ugh ok, I'll go with the flow since I have like 20min to get to my appointment. I go back and notice the toilet has a ring, then after spraying find out the can is broken, so I try to turn the water on to wash my hands, NO WATER, I go to the phone and the phone doesn't work so I have to walk back to the front. I'm frustrated now, but figure I will get another room and get on the road. Lady at the desk says no to room change. I go back and find that both key cards no longer work, so I have to walk back. When I get there I hear her offer 3 room choices to couple checking in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I'm livid!!!!!!!! I'm dealling with all this and now have missed my PAID for tour which is one of the reasons I'm in SD to begin with!!!!! The clerk tells me when I patiently wait for her to check in the person she offers heaven and earth to, that NO I CAN"T HAVE ANOTHER ROOM!!!!!!!! I luckily don't stand for it (I would have left, if I thought I had a chance of catching any of my other plans). She finally moved my room, but key cards went out every day I was there.

If you are clean-this is not the hotel for you. The only good thing about this hotel was the front desk receptionist. Upon walking in the room we noticed a large gap in-between the door and the floor...Large enough for anything to crawl through. The carpet was very stained and dirty, there were multiple hairs on the shower walls, and the overall feeling of the room was very dirty. There were strange noises all night long, like a machine pumping something. Absolutely disgusting and would not stay there again even if they paid me!!!

The mattress was hard and uncomfortable. There was no drain for the sink. Bathroom was dingy.

I would recommend this Hotel to anyone, outstanding desk service

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, near the cricket wireless amphitheater
From the time my best friend and I arrived at the hotel, we could feel a sense of comfort and relaxation. The front desk help was very curtious and informative. We were able to check into our room quickly as our reservations were up on their computer system in seconds. The hotel made us feel like we were home. It was also extremely close to The Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre where our concert took place that night. We had no trouble falling asleep and woke up refreshed the next day. Thank you Best Western for your hospitality!!!

Ok - mediocre

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
The stay was generally OK. It was an older standard 2/3 star facility. It was reasonably kept up and clean, but rooms small and dark. Price point seemed fair to on the high side for amenities. Comfort level was bare adequacy. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. This was a business trip. When I return to see the client again, I will try to find someplace a little nicer, even if a bit more distant or more expensive.

Shady Hotel

I did not feel safe at all in this hotel. Lots of shady people in the area and in the hotel.The room smelled really bad and had the worst/rudest reception service. It's cheap... and I found the reason why.
