    « Great location for visiting SAn Diego Zoo Safari Park »

    Our Best Western room was one of the nicest rooms we have enjoyed in all of our travels. We stayed two nights to visit the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The facility was excellent. The desk staff were very helpful and directed us to the dining that we desired. We will be back on our next Safari.

    « Very poor breakfast »

    The hotel was average, the room comfortable but the breakfast was extremely poor. As often the toaster required 3 passes to become even lightly tanned. The rest of the food was just as poor. We didn't bother.

    « Fantastic! »

    My boyfriend and I stayed at this Best Western Escondido Hotel. Upon arrival, Registration desk was under construction....and in a different location...apparently revamping/upgrading? Not sure, it wasn't explained....anyways, stayed in Room #301. It's a corner room, so you get a lot of natural light and 2 1/2 windows (Port hole -1/2 window). Just loved it! You overlook an RV campground with lots of trees. I enjoy camping so I found the room to be very relaxing...kind of a treehouse. Attended an event at Pala Casino, which is about 25 minute drive. Less expensive hotel than Temecula hotels. Ask to stay in Room #301, you will not be disappointed.

    « Nice For This Area »

    We've stayed at several BW in California and most are above average overall and priced accordingly. At this property, our room was clean, we were treated well with their courteous staff and service. The only thing missing when compared with other BW, is that there was no complimentary bottled water in our room or fresh fruit and snacks in the lobby. But they did have hot waffles at their complimentary breakfast and hard boiled eggs (cold) which was fine.

    « Easy to find, safe and comfortable »

    I spent 3 nights at the Best Western Hotel last week. I was visiting family in Escondido, and had been worried about finding a safe place to stay as Escondido can be somewhat dicey. This hotel was undergoing renovations while I was staying there but my room was very comfortable, the location was great, I felt safe and the complimentary breakfast was ample. I'd def stay here again.

    « Sheets had not been changed! Sink drain plugged. »

    We checked in at 8 p.m. after driving all day. Sadly the second queen bed had sheets that had not been changed - only saw it when going to bed at 10 p.m. The bathroom sink filled up and would not drain even when just brushing your teeth. Gross. How was this cleaned if it was already stopped up? Gross.

    We have stayed here many times over the past 7+ years. Even while remodeling was occurring, we were never inconvenienced. Staff is always very friendly & helpful, rooms clean and quiet. Best hotel in Escondido for the price.

    « Wonderful setting and well-managed »

    I and extended family and friends stayed at the hotel for several days. The hotel is lovely, clean, comfortable, and within easy access to Balboa Park and Safari Park. The staff was very gracious to our large group and went out of their way to make hotel space available for easy visiting. Breakfast offered many choices. The guest laundry was a big help. While we were there, the lobby was being remodeled and the reception and breakfast areas had been temporarily relocated. The relocation was well designed so as not to impact guests. Great job and great stay!

    « Great experience »

    Beginning October one, we spent six days visiting tourist sites in the San Diego area. We appreciated the ease of getting to and from a major expressway. Room noise was never a problem (fourth floor facing the expressway/window closed), room service as expected, front desk staff very helpful, parking easy and close by. We'll stay again.

    « Visiting family in Escondido... »

    All the staff at the hotel were awesome! Lobby area was under construction, but it wasn't a problem at all...My room was very clean, and kept clean for the length of my stay...My only issue were the pillows, which were way too soft...I asked if they had other pillows, but they didn't. I would highly recommend this hotel...

    « Great Stay »

    This was a really nice hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with local information. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. If I had a complaint about the room it would be we could have used some extra pillows. Another complaint we had was the breakfast. We had read a review on another website that they offered eggs & sausage but they didn't. We didn't want to start our day with carbs and sugar so we ended up finding a place to have breakfast. Everything else was great though and we'd definitely stay again.

    « Best Western-Escondido »

    The hotel is nice enough but sits in front of a trailer/RV park so that is a little different. The staff is nice and rooms are comfortable. Breakfast is continental with no eggs or hot entrees. Pool and hot tub are nice.

    « Mold & Strong Mold Oder »

    The room stunk when we first arrived -- went to office -- received bottle of Fabreeze -- no rooms available, so we were told. Too late to switch hotels. Senior member has COPD -- hard to breathe & emergency inhaler was used to stay the night. Next a.m. we complained again about 7 a.m., and we received another room just like the night before without mold -- I'm sure this room was available the night before, but we were not offered it. Greed for $$ -- maybe reserve the room for a late walk-in????

    « Nice stay. Clean and quiet rooms »

    Excellent front desk service, and staff were very friendly. We had a 2 x double bed room. Beds were clean and comfortable and we could not fault the room except the airconditioner was not very adjustable. Cool was freezing cold. Nice and quiet also and yet in a good location in Escondido.

    Nice place. Bed was way comfy. Smoke alarm went off when we got in the room. The staff was courteous and accommodating. Close to freeway, a small drive to malls, San Diego Safari Park. I would stay again.

    « Another flawless Best Western »

    All Best Westerns are different, but my experience is that they are all good places to stay, and some are superb; this one falls into the latter category. Check-in was quick and easy, and our fourth floor room was reached by a spacious and fast elevator. The room was very spacious, and well appointed. They had recently undergone a renovation, and it was obviously well executed. There were lots of little features that made a difference, such as individual reading lamps on the beds, a dedicated phone or computer charging station on the desk, a very quiet air conditioner, and two baggage racks. The beds were firm and very comfortable, and the WiFi performed perfectly. There was even consideration given to the smokers among us; a smoking area, with a nice table and chairs is provided adjacent to a side entry to the building, very nice! Glad to have chosen this place.

    « Superb rooms, spacious, and Freindly »

    This hotel is easily located to local freeway and restaurants. It sits at a deadens street which makes the traffic flow quiet. The rooms are very nice and spacious. The breakfast was lacking and not refilled often but was adequate...they could improve this service.

    « Dissappointed in Staff and Houskeeping »

    Never had problems at a hotel getting fresh linen or the room made up until now. Front desk staff really unapologetic about everything, including having all doors but the front locked after 10 pm and you have to walk in the dark parking drive as the sidewalk does not go all the way around the building.

    « Clean with easy access, but WiFi unreliable »

    I stay at this hotel about two times per year when visiting family. I thought I should update my last review since several things have changed. You would think that a city the size of Escondido would have a better selection of hotels. The available hotels are generally older and run down. This one is now about 20 - 25 years old but has been well maintained. It is clean and located in a convenient location off Interstate 15 on the north end of town and north of Hwy 78. Despite being close to the interstate, I have found all the rooms to be free of any detectable road noise. This is a relatively quiet area which is a huge plus if you are a light sleeper. Speaking of light sleepers, avoid any rooms ending in 19. These are all right next to the elevator on each floor. The design of the elevator lobby is such that the other rooms are unaffected. Additionally the first floor rooms 100 - 110 are on a very heavily trafficked hallway on the way to the elevator. Avoid those. I am a business traveler, and Wi-Fi is essential for me to stay in touch with my office. My last visit in September 2016 the Wi-Fi was absolutely horrible. The speed was barely above an old dial-up connection, and it disconnected after 15 minutes or so every time. Unless they get this fixed, I'm going to have to really look elsewhere. The breakfast area is small and cramped during peak hours. The breakfast consists of fruit, breads and bagels, a waffle maker which was very popular, yogurt, milk, coffee, and fruit juice. They had an attendant there during the first hours which was very helpful in getting tables cleared off and directing people to the overflow area ( a meeting room ) if no tables were available. They mentioned that this area is going to be closed off soon for remodeling. There were three parking spots for electric vehicles. There are 2 Blink Chademo chargers and a Blink J1772 charger. Unfortunately they are located very close to the entrance and almost always have gasoline cars parked in them. If you use an electric vehicle you need to get there early. Management appears to be clueless about why these need to be designated for electric vehicles only. Parking spots in general seem to be narrower than average increasing the risk of door dings. Thankfully this facility has stopped charging the "electric surcharge" . The price you are quoted will now be the actual price you pay, plus tax. Normally I would give this facility for stars. Due to the horrible Wi-Fi I am reducing it to three stars, since as a business traveler Wi-Fi is as essential as running water and electricity.

    « Comfortable and affordable »

    This hotel was clean, quiet, located close to the freeway. The pool and spa were clean and well maintained. The continental breakfast was the usual stuff, but if you aren't looking for more than coffee and a muffin you'll be happy. Definitely worth the value.

    We stayed at this hotel last year. If possible this hotel was cleaner and fresher than the year before. Staff is very friendly. They have a pool that goes up to about 5 ft, a hot tub near the pool. Easy to hook up a video game counseled to the room tv. Microwave and fridge in the room. Our king room had a sofa, sitting area. Rooms are spacious. Free wifi. There is a complimentary breakfast with waffles, boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, pastries, milk, juice, coffee. We are very pleased with this hotel and plan to continue to use their services.

    Stayed only for one Friday night since we were attending a Graduation in the area and this location was very convenient, right off the I-15. Clean and comfortable and we had a great nights sleep ?? their beds are very comfy!! Breakfast is included with the usual offerings of fruit, bagels, yogurt, cereal, do it yourself waffles, etc. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area and needed accommodations

    My room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice with one of the best hostesses I've had. The WiFi worked without issue. The elevator could use an update, but worked fine, just slow and noisy. The property was right off the freeway and very easy to both get to and get back on the road from.

    Friendly and helpful staff! Booked the hotel for a week and weren't happy with the view of our room the first night and they had no problem putting us in a different room with a great view for the rest of the week! Wifi wasn't the greatest it kept disconnecting on our tablets/cellphones but wasn't a huge issues for us as we weren't at the hotel most of the time:) room was very nice n clean and updated. Would definitely stay here again if we ever go back to San Diego area!

    « Comfortably stylish hotel just off the I-15 »

    Have stayed here before and especially like the staff. It's a bit set off from the center of town, but worth it as there's very little noise and traffic. They have a beautiful pool and the self-serve breakfast is quite convenient with many choices of food & drink. The people & pets that stay there are also worth the visit !

    « Great place to rest your head! »

    This was such an upgrade compared to where we originally booked! People were friendly and the rooms were clean and welcoming!! Perfect for resting your head being so far from home. The pool and the hot tub were beautiful and perfect after a day of running around visiting with family.

    Lovely hotel, was clean with large room and friendly staff. This hotel met our needs to have slow start to our days, as we were in town to relax and visit family, not to tour. Had peaceful mornings at the pool reading and swimming, and enjoyed it one evening as well. Our overall experience was delightful. We'll be back as our son lives in the area.

    « Nothing tops a good nights sleep »

    Having to spend 7 days in Sand Diego for a softball tournament, being comfortable and getting rest was important. Having to wake at 5am depart for the fields by 6am, we needed to sleep well and have a breakfast ready. Returning after 4 games in the heat, it was teriffic to be able to jump in a nice pool and lounge w/ the rest of the team after games. This hotel gave us everything we needed.

    « Nice clean affordable hotel for family getaway weekend. »

    We enjoyed the very spacious family suite for a group of 5 after long days sightseeing and visiting family in the area. The hotel is older and a bit dated in its room appearance. However it is meticulous and clean. The staff are very nice and very helpful. Also the continental breakfast buffet is nice before trekking the area. My only complaint about the room is that the mattress on the pullout sofa bed is too hard and not very comfortable unless you are a small child. Everything else was great and very affordable for a very expensive area.

    Clean with helpful and friendly personnel. Breakfast area always clean and stocked well. Room was cleaned quickly when we left. Right near freeways making it easy to access many places easily.

We found everything quite pleasant and so again the same this year. The staff is universally helpful and friendly. The accommodations are clean and well kept. Although there is nothing exceptional or unique about the property all in all everything is quite good. We anticipate a return next year.

    « Easy off highway, breakfast no good for diabetic »

    They were in the process of replacing the beds throughout this hotel, so that's something to look forward to. Found continental breakfast disappointing, esp for my sister who was diabetic and needing protein that morning. Found out later that fast food and groceries are just west of the freeway (take a right back onto the main drag). Have to be a little heads up at night if you're out. Shell station across street. Room was nice with a larger fridge; beds were comfy. Carpeting in hall was a bit dated, but not bad. Nice lobby to hang out. Night guy went out of his way to try and find me a cord to recharge my cell, as I had some stuff get ripped off while traveling. VERY pleasant, and was accommodating to other guests as well. Laundry on 1st and 3rd floors.

    This hotel would be adequate if attention to basic housekeeping rules in vacuuming and cleaning were followed. Our room had a used condom wrapper near the couch that was still there after our room was serviced.

    « Standard Best Western »

    The hotel is fine. The front staff were efficient, friendly, attentive and competent. The hotel shows its age and is well past its prime. This hotel has no security, so be warned. All outer exits open without room keys and some of the people who work there do not wear identifying uniforms or badges, so it's a bit confusing who works there and who is just passing through. The room was clean, a bit worn, but everything worked and the shower was nice.The breakfast area needs attention - food everywhere, tables not cleared or cleaned, waffle mix all over the counter and on the floor. The space was wholly inadequate for the number of people using it.The common areas were not vacuumed while we were there, so it just looked shabby. It's close to markets, the Safari Park and some good wineries. If there had been other options in the area we probably would not have stayed the second night. For the value and for a short stay, it was average.

    I brought 125 students and 12 adult chaperons to San Diego for our spring trip. I was very impressed with how everyone from Best Western treated me and my students. They gave us a great rate on rooms. We had 42 of them. And the desk attendees were so helpful to us and all of the high school age students. They made everything easier for us so we could enjoy our experience and make the most of our time. Simple things as opening up the conference room when we had breakfast and dinner to making time adjustments for when we had to leave early. All the kids were pleased with the condition of their rooms. I think this was a great place for traveling groups and if in the area, I will certainly bring my group back.

    overall a nice hotel, especially for price. right off of i-15 and easy to find. the hotel itself seems semi-recently updated and clean. our room had a fridge and lots of extra space. i didnt at all appreciate that they decided to do some remodeling outside of my room at 730am. i didnt know anyone could make that much of a repetative banging noise by simply scraping paint. i called the front desk to ask if they could have him do some work somewhere that wasnt right outside of my door and the response i got back was that the noise must have been coming from the rv park next door. really? come on now. i rarely get to sleep in and was really hoping that would happen. i was wrong. no noise the rest of the day, just from 730-830. couldnt they have done that work between check out and check in so it didnt inconvencience any guests? also, the wifi is a joke. dont expect to stream anything. i even had trouble getting facebook to refresh.

    The person taking our reservation was very helpful, professional and nice! That was a good start! The value was excellent. Checking in and out were also very pleasant and easy. The room was clean and quiet. We definitely would stay there again.

    « Decent Hotel Esp. For the Price »

    Stayed here last night and the hotel fit our expectations. Clean and conveniently located for a wedding we were attending in the area. View could have been better as looking out window was pretty much eye level with a mobile home park.

    « Reasonable priced hotel, convenient to the freeway »

    This hotel is close enough to the freeway for easy access but not so close as to be subjected to the noise. They have a hot breakfast which is unusual in this price range of a hotel. They generally try to upgrade me to the suite for no extra charge when they are not full. The staff is very kind and accommodating. As I stay in 100 hotels every year, it means a lot to me to be nicely treated when away from home. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed for working on my computer, which I do when I'm not off teaching. My only wish is that they would add an electrical outlet and a parking spot for plug-in cars. They have a high voltage charger but it is situated in front of handicapped parking so I can't use it.

    « 5 star service and the best hotel in the city »

    If you are staying in the Escondido area, make sure to book your stay here. You will be impressed by the excellent staff. Nick in particular was phenomenal. We have stayed at various 5 star hotels and have not received nearly the same attention and help that was given to us here. This just made our Valentine's Day celebration so much more romantic. Thank you, Nick and Best Western Escondido.

    « Wonderful Room & Helpful Front Desk Staff »

    This was our first stay at this Best Western Hotel and it won't be our last! Our flight into Long Beach was delayed so we called when we were on the ground to let them know we would be a late arrival - Matt's voice was friendly yet professional as he assured us that it was not a problem. He asked if we had a preference for which floor we would like to be on and we said "no, just someplace quiet". He selected a 4th floor room for us which as perfect! The room was very nicely laid out and had everything we wanted or needed. The king bed was super comfortable and the sofa and chairs were nice too. It was so quiet in our room we were actually surprised in the morning to discover that we actually had neighbors, we never heard them!! Breakfast in the morning was fine - not exciting, but certainly adequate for getting the day started and that's really all we were looking for (a selection of bagels, toast, cereal, waffles, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, juice and coffee). We have family we visit annually in the area so we will surely be back again!

    « Great property, great staff »

    Beautiful property, beautiful rooms, great staff and great breakfast. Very quiet location near freeway exit. Everything was perfect from check-in, to the room, to the hot tub, to breakfast the next morning. Loved it!

    Check in was easy and quick! Had issues with checkin to do with the wifi but these were efficiently resolved, to our satisfaction. Reception staff are very helpful. Breakfast was a bit disappointing, not in line with with other Best Westerns we have stayed at! Jacuzzi was nice and relaxing! Easy to get to San Diego, would definitely recommend.

    Would recommend this hotel, the beds are comfy and pillows too.. Roomy rooms and pool is refreshing... Next time I go to visit my kids I would definitely stay here.. Close to them and I am very picky on clean places and comfort and this is the place for us

    « Needs new matresses »

    Check in and out were fine, room clean but with slight oder as well as stronger in hallway in the rear of complex. All in all things were fine except a very important component, the mattress folks!!!! That's why we stay at motels!

    Very well maintained facility. Rooms were clean and well supplied. Hot tub was really welcome, but due the weather, it was cold upon exiting. Way too cold to use the pool. Breakfast was adequate, however it lacked meat and only hard boiled eggs. There was a large number of young boys on the last day, perhaps a soccer team. They were rather loud, but I would rather see youthful exuberance any day over gangs. All in all, a good stay. We have stayed here before, and will again.

    « Good value. Clean. »

    Stayed here 3 nights. Price was lower than other hotels in the area. Staff very courteous and helpful. There's a fridge and microwave in each room. Room faced a park, not the freeway and was very quiet. The windows opened which I liked. Free wifi, pretty fast. Free breakfast - not the most healthy, but ok. Good coffee. Only complaint would be that bed sagged in the middle. Had we asked, they probably would have given us another room, but it wasn't so bad I wanted to change. I'd definitely stay here again.

    « Always first class! »

    We have been here before and will keep coming back. Nice to see some renovations going on, nice new rugs. The front desk was as professional as always, clean and ready to serve. The only issue is that if you would like to have a great time and drink, nothing is within walking distance.

    « GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN ESCONDIDO. »

    The motel is very conveniently located just off of the freeway and looks very nice from the street. The motel inside is very nice with a very nice lobby area. The check in was very quick and pleasant, the service was exceptional answering our questions and gave us a handout of many places to eat and things to see with very good directions to each. Our room was large and very nice, very clean and everything worked including all lights. I can not believe how many places we stay that at least one light will not work properly, nicely done Best Western. Our room was conveniently close to where we could park our vehicle, a great bonus. The shower had great water pressure and we had plenty of towels in the room. The halls and common areas were well maintained and very clean. The whole facility is very comfortable. My only negative on our stay was the breakfast. I am used to Best Western having a full hot breakfast, this one serves a continental style breakfast with the only hot item being a waffle with everyone lining up for a turn at one of the two waffle makers. Everything is high carb stuff, with cereals, muffins, bagels and toast to choose from. I will be checking closer next time to make sure I stay at motels that offer a full hot breakfast as I need more protean than carbs and I figure the cost of a full breakfast offsets the higher cost of the stay over going out to a diner to eat.

    The property is very nice, clean and the staff was very polite and helpful. The beds were very comfortable, the pool was very nice and it was a very enjoyable experience. Cindy the manager went out of her way to assist us with great restaurant information and upcoming events in the area. We travel very frequently and this property is one of our favotites. I would have to give this property a 10 for the cleanliness, polite and friendly staff and the location was very convenient to many attractions.

    « Poor Cell reception »

    Hotel was great -- quiet, clean and nice staff. However, the cell reception in my room was non-existent and even in the lobby I had to step outside to complete my call. I mentioned it to desk clerk upon checking out, thinking it was my room. She said it is a common problem in the hotel.

    Looking to stay at an extremely helpful, friendly, comfortable, cleanness place, This is it! The room was comfortable in all ways. The use if internet was awesome, loved the ease of hook up. The staff was very friendly, helpful, neat appearance, right there for you when you needed something, had a question, helped find the phone number of a place we wanted to go to. The breakfast was terrific, the room comfortable and welcoming. Very clean and a lot to chose from for breakfast. The rooms were the cleanest we have ever stayed in (the hotel was). The appearance of the room when walking in was ah so relaxing, you just knew you would have a great stay and sleep. The location very close to the I-15 was extremely helpful for a traveler.

    « Nice Place to Hang Your Hat »

    I was in town with my dad and we were visiting family that lives in the area when we stayed at this Best Western. This was a really nice place to stay for that purpose, the front desk was friendly and efficient, Check-in was a breeze. The rooms were very clean and had all the amenities one would need for a few nights. The bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean and functional. Location is good if you are in the area for a specific purpose, gas station/convenience store close by and bonus points for a Starbucks being in walking distance for dad! No real noticeably street noise. There is a small pool area that would be good for relaxing for a day. I was able to stick my feet in the hot tub after a long day of travel, nobody was around so I had the place to myself. The continental breakfast is always a welcome site, they have the standard yogurt, a variety of breads for toasting, waffle maker, hard boiled eggs and a selection of small pastries, really anything you need to kick off your day! Definitely worth the stay!

    « A very nice hotel. »

    The hotel is very pretty on the outside and very nice on the inside. Everything gives the impression of an upscale establishment. An example is the furniture in the breakfast area which is glass topped wood tables with very nice padded wood chairs. The room was spacious, very clean, with plenty of soft towels. Our contacts with the help were all pleasant. They were friendly, but professional. I have stayed at any number of hotels that cost a lot more and were not nearly up to the standards of this hotel.

    « Nice friendly safe stay »

    Myself, daughter and grandchildren stayed 3 nights. We were extremely satisfied with our experience. We are going to return in Nov or Dec 2015 to go to the Safari Park we are not able to go because the wether was to HOT so we will return in a month or so when it cools down. We ended up going to Sea World instead,

    « Escondido HOT »

    It was so hot in Escondido but the property was ok a little deteriorated and we had to stay inside with the air conditioning on. There are lots of illegal immigrants in the area asking for work and help with money.

    « Stayed in 2014 »

    I was not expecting much out of this hotel. The lobby was beautiful, staff was extremely friendly and breakfast in the morning was great. Working at Best Westerns, I know the standards that BWs are supposed to have. This one exceeds Best Western. In fact with a few extra choices at breakfast, and a few minor changes, it could be a Best Western Plus. This review is over a year later than when I stayed; I always stay at Best Westerns, and out of all my hotels to this day, yours is still the best one.

    « NICE HOTEL IN ESCONDIDO »

    This hotel is adjacent to #15 On and Off ramps, Complimentary and nice continental breakfast. We stay here several times a year since we have family in the area. However, they don't have a workout/gym room but a very nice pool and patio area.

    If I could rate this a 0 I would!!!!!!!!!!! Lady at reception was rude to us! Didn't receive a warm welcoming to the hotel from anyone. Receptionist Didn't keep her professional status as a "front desk manager" wouldn't recommend it to anybody! .

    I don't usually like the Best Western chain but this one is a little nicer than the usual. Seems like it might have been another hotel previously. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Room was very nice, clean and spacious. Would stay again.

    « Worth it the stays »

    Our first time to Escondido, the hotel was very nice,clean, and convenient to all the restaurants and markets. I can't complain about the room. The room is very spacious and super clean. The pool is small and should be cleaned a little. There were leaves and kind of dirty but it was kind of windy that day so it oughta for it. Overall, it was nice, quiet and very clean. I would recommend it.

    No doubt Best Western is top in this range of Hotels. It makes the sentence "Cleanliness is near to Godliness" in very apt way. This is my 4th stay with Best western and i like this hotel chain very much
