Good value

Pros: Cleanliness,
Location: Lots to do in the area
Hotel is older, but well maintained. Updates have been done professionally. Staff is responsive and generally friendly. We used the all day bus passes or walked to where we wanted to go. Location was good for our plans:. Hop on Hop off Trolley, Zoo, Balboa Park,/Museums, waterfront, Little Italy and Seaport village. I would rate the free breakfast service as pleasing: Hot food: eggs,meat, potatoes or/pancakes. Breakfast area has enough room it is like eating at a diner. At some hotels it gets congested, not at this place. The courtesy shuttle to and from the airport is convenient. HInt: for faster service, know the terminal number you are arriving at,

Best Western Plus Ash St. Driving from AZ

Cons: Second elevator was out of service and made for long lines waiting to go up to your room, Luckily it got fixed after 3 days.
Finding this hotel is easy and the location is great for walking to Little Italy for dinner or the coastal restaurants! Go for the parking onsite for $18. a night better than trying to find something on the street. The 14 floor hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly, breakfast is ok in a nice location, but get up early because they only serve until 9:30 am. The pool and spa was a bonus, we enjoyed sitting outside before dinner and watching the kids play in the pool. If you can get a room on one of the higher floors facing the downtown, great view! Thermostat did not regulate room temperature, on and off worked for us.We had a great stay and will return.

Nice hotel close to port

Location: Could easily walk to the beach. Port was nearby.
The hotel was nice, staff was nice. They had a great complimentary breakfast. And we really appreciated that with a phone call we got picked up from the airport.

Convenient location

Hotel is clean and rooms adequate. Location is convenient to Little Italy and a variety eating options. Parking spaces are small and be aware that the garage, while adjacent, is not connected to the hotel and is accessible by stairs only. The included breakfast was a nice way to start the day. The hot selections changed for the 2 mornings that we ate there.

March 2015

Pros: The staff. Very courteous and helpful answering questions. I think housekeeping was doing a great job in keeping the hotel clean and orderly.
Location: Close to Downtown, Harbor, Gaslamp, Balboa Park, Bus and Trolley. Little Italy, Old Town, USS Midway, Restraunts, etc.
This is my second stay at this hotel, my other was February 2014. Called from the airport and came right away. They were going through some renovation in the lobby area this year, but that did not interfere with our stay. Never heard any construction going on when we were in the Hotel. Hotel was accessible at all times. We were out and about most of the day. Check in was smooth. We were given a Harbor view Room 11th floor. The room was clean and comfortable. My son and I both agreed that the beds were very comfortable, slept well. Bathroom was clean, everything we needed. Good supply of coffee. Housekeeping was excellent during our whole stay. My son and I took advantage of the free breakfast. A plain and simple meal nothing fancy and it got our day started. Even though We didn't have a car this time I thought the parking was reasonable. I know I will continue to stay here. I researched a few hotels in San Diego and some where nicer or less expensive, but I found this one to be comfortable and located just right for me. Overall it was a great stay.
