    « Good Hotel to stay with family »

    Well maintained hotel good for family stay. The rooms were clean and rates were good. The safety was one good point out here. Overall the staff was really nice and helpful. They provided things going out of their way to make it an enjoyable stay.

    « They cut corners just ro make money »

    I made my reservations and told them I want conjoining rooms so when I got there they didn't have any so I couldn't let my kids stay in a room by themselves but they charge me anyway for a room I did not use

    « Weekend in San Diego »

    Very nice clean older hotel with a pool and hot tub. Complimentary breakfast. Worked great for base camp as we traveled around the area. Marine base is nearby and downtown is 20 minutes away where you can see the USS Midway and Gaslamp District.

    It's been a while since I was here and this property has been upgraded! Very nice! Nice rooms, improved breakfast area, pool and jacuzzi with lots of seats. Rooms are clean and spacious with fridge and microwave. There is a gas station and Carl's junior next to hotel.

    « Overnight visit for funeral at Miramar Military Cemetery the next day. »

    The hotel is located very close to the 15 Freeway so we had no trouble finding it. The room was of fair size but the bathroom and shower was very small. There was a fridge and microwave in the room. Checking in was easy and the hotel personnel were very friendly. They served a pretty good breakfast in the morning. They did have cable TV but they did not carry the Dodger channel and they were in the playoffs so we went elsewhere to watch the game that evening. They have no newspaper if you enjoy a morning paper. I would stay there again but for no more than one day. Also had a nice pool.

    « Very near Alliant International University »

    Came down to see the granddaughter play in a volleyball tournament. The hotel is within a reasonable distance from the site of Alliant U campus. The hotel was clean, the beds were extremely comfortable, and the towels were the best (softest and dried better) than any other we have had this year. Almost like home. The internet connected easily, but the desk provided in our room was small and the only light hung above in the ceiling. The chair provided was not an office type chair, unable to adjust the height. This made internet use a bit more difficult. Breakfast was normal for a Best Western. We chose to go to the IHop just across the street instead for more variety. And that was an experience in itself - a positive one. Overall it was a great price for San Diego. The room was more than adequate for our purposes. And our room was quiet and dark enough. Hate the taxes in San Diego for visitors. Seems to be a growing trend, soak the tourists.

    « Great quality, like new inside »

    Doesn't look as good on outside as inside since it is just a bit old fashioned style but the room was large, new looking and clean and modern. Great rate too. Breakfast was a bit lame as most hotel breakfasts are but they do have eggs and sausage and waffles.

    « Best hotel, best location, best staff! »

    Our first ever trip to San Diego was wonderful and having a comfortable bed in a well-equipped room with a considerate staff, tasty breakfast and a perfect location right by the freeway helped make it so. Can't wait to come back!

    « Acceptable, but Nothing Special »

    I stayed here for three nights while attending the Miramar Air Show. The hotel is conveniently located to the northeast of the base and very close. It was easy and convenient to drive south on Kearny Villa each morning to the preferred parking entrance for the air show. The hotel is somewhat dated and is much like a motel, with exterior passageways and doors opening to the exterior. It does have an elevator, and a pool. The staff at reception were pleasant and efficient. A breakfast buffet is available, with eggs, waffles, little sausages, juices, etc. The breakfast was filling, but that's all I can say about it. The rooms were spacious, but very basic. The blankets on the bed was the thinnest I have come across in over 30 years of travelling. The rooms were relatively quite and were functional.

    « Everything perfect »

    Every amenity hoped for in a hotel of this caliber. Good rates. Desk personnel couldn't be more helpful, especially Crystal & Diane. Standard room (1 king) very clean, large, excellent climate control, plenty of electrical outlets, bed comfortable (except the top sheet - do they use starch in the laundry?), good lighting (and I like it bright), extra mirrors including a full-length, sofa & a large desk, microwave & refrigerator, free continental breakfast included waffles, eggs, & sausage as well as pastries, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit. Everything worked in the room. Enough parking. Conveniently located with easy access. Our keys wouldn't work when we first arrived. Diane responded immediately and compassionately, and finally switched us to an identical room when it seemed that the problem was with the lock on the first door. We were on 2nd of 3 floors - elevator fast & quiet. No complaints whatsoever!

    « Very Friendly Staff - Very Average Hotel »

    Lovely and very helpful staff. They would receive a 5 star rating! The hotel itself a 2 star, therefor our three star overall. The great part about the room, the curved shower curtain allowing for amore spacious feeling while showering in a narrow space. Watch out for the surprisingly low set toilet. We are tall people, but not giants and what a surprise it was to land at a lower altitude than expected on the commode. Lumpy pillows, lumpy and very soft bed (though we acknowledge that everyone has their preferred firmness in both pillows and mattresses...beware if you prefer a firm mattress) crackly not so comfy sheets, very noisy and quirky window unit air conditioner. For the price paid we did expect a better breakfast bar. Dried out pastries and scrambled eggs that seemed made from the dehydrated powder eggs available. The little sausages were quite tasty, the coffee...well, we were not at Peet's, after all. Thank heavens for Raisin Bran & Frosted Flakes! And thank heavens we had purchased elite seating at the Miramar Air Show with free breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks. :)

    I was pleased with the appearance and amenities at this hotel. The room was nice and comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. It was a good location, close to UCSD. I preferred this hotel over the BW at Golden Triangle.

    « pillows too high »

    towels were nice, sheets made a crackling sound (heard they are in the process of changing them to cotton/polyester). clean room. door automatically closes. hope they have a stopper in the back to hold the door open. this would make it very easy to load/unload or carry in/out luggage, etc. pillows were too high.

    « Thank You Best Western! »

    Tired, really tired. Traveling with our dear four-legged older Boston Terrier, who's also exceptionally well-mannered. BUT, not all hotels take dogs. This BW did and the room was on the bottom floor and two doors down from where we parked. The room smelled CLEAN---not of cleaning materials.The bed was very comfortable. We had plenty of hot water for showers. I highly recommend this Best Western!

    « Industrial Park version of BW Brand »

    This was a serious disappointment. Restricted search to BW in the area for a quick overnight from Phoenix. Everything feels run down. The carpet is super thin and buckling -- the doors and elevator are kinda crappy And that's OK but ... the stuff I came to expect from BW were suddenly not there ... Decent mattress --- um, no --- stuck on a played-out pillow top AC is a total clunky window unit --- noisy all night Narrow entrance - semi-trucks parked everywhere (loud) Avoid

    « Quick San Diego Trip »

    This place was just fine for a quick San Diego Visit. Rooms are older but clean enough. Breakfast was fine. Pool was fine. Nothing wrong at all with this place and we would use it again for sure with our kids if we need to head back to SD any time soon.

    « Manager Manu mean, disrespectful and rude! »

    I traveled to attend a conference to the near by University and had to stay in this listed location. Despite my sickness with my allergy, I had a good night sleep. The room is very clean. Russell at Front desk is friendly and helpful.Sadly, there is this mean manager by the name Manu, walks in to say that he do not have a fridge to keep my little to go box. He was mean and rude. His negative attitude ruin my day to the say the least. He checked on every staff in " do my way" attitude. He has no customer service skills and unfriendly!!! Do not stay in this location at all!!!

    « Doctor visit »

    We stayed here last night and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel across the street was literally $80 more per night & I highly doubt that would have been worth the price. The staff was very friendly. I checked the best western website & searched for specials & found a 48 special that saved me an extra $10 so take the time to search the site & sign up for the rewards program. The free breakfast was sufficient & what you would expect, Danish, waffles, cereal, Apple, banana Etc. I would stay again.

    « Customer service »

    When we checked in at about 4:30pm on August 8,2016 Juan was on duty. He was a great assistance in helping me with directions to places we needed to go. This was our first trip to San Diego and we had an early doctor's appointment the next day. The directions he gave us took us directly there.

    3
    « Great Staff and Service!! »

    The front desk day employee Juan was extremely helpful with any questions and provided excellent service. Rooms were clean and a bit old for the price but OK. The breakfast make your own waffles was a nice touch but they sometimes mixed ham into the scrambled eggs which some may not like very much. Make sure you slam your door a bit when you leave as the door will not close all the way on its own. Was much quieter than other Best Westerns i have stayed.

    « Free Baths in the Hot Tub! »

    It's expensive to stay in San Diego...especially in July. We went down to see a Giants game at Petco Park and to go to the various beaches and tourist attractions around the area but finding a central location to stay at that wasn't crazy expensive was impossible. The best deal that we found was this hotel up near the Miramar Naval Air Station. If you stay here and want to spend time in central San Diego, allow yourself plenty of time to get there...especially on a weekday. The Giants game was on a Friday night and the traffic was horrendous. Be prepared to sit in traffic a while. Check in was a little odd. A gentlemen at the front desk checked us in and he seemed to either be the manager or owner of the property. He was a nice enough guy but as I was standing there he received at least 7 phone calls in a row. I was tired from a long drive and just wanted to relax and was surprised that he put the various phone calls before somebody who was standing right in front of him. It seemed a little rude. He was apologetic and proceeded with my check in. He mentioned that I went through an online third party to make the reservation which was true. He then mentioned that they had underpaid him. He said it was no problem and not my fault but it was obvious he was not happy with that situation. Once again, he was very nice but this seemed a bit misplaced. The room was clean and comfortable. The free wifi worked well as did the a/c. Free breakfast was fine with waffles and continental breakfast items. I found it odd that the two milk pitchers were rigged so that only a trickle of milk would come out of them. This was intentionally done since both had the thumb actuators removed. I read this as an attempt by the management to save money and if that's the case it's a bit tacky. Plus, the person who maintained the food was very slow to replenish the milk pitchers which were very small to begin with. There seems to be a bit of a homeless problem in the area. I saw a guy who obviously was not a guest walk up to an outdoor electrical outlet and charge his phone. On another occasion I witnessed a guy ride up on a ratty bike, jump the locked gate around the pool, and take a bath in the hot tub! We had an unobstructed view of him washing his hair, socks, and "junk" right there out in the open. He didn't strip down completely naked fortunately but he did have a severe case of plumbers butt. I did call the office on him. It sounded like this was a common problem. Maybe they need to invest in some security. There are also an inordinate amount of signs on the property that state that the hotel is not responsible for items lost from guest's burglarized cars. We didn't have an issue but I wonder if this sort of crime is common there. Next door to the hotel is an auto repair place. I witnessed one of the mechanics pick up and park a car in the hotel's parking lot. The hotel lot is pretty small so hopefully this is a not a common occurrence. Despite all this, overall we had a pleasant stay. However, I'm not sure I would recommend this place. In a pinch, maybe. I'm going to give it 3 stars based on the odd things that happened during my stay.

    « Good »

    The hotel was great for the price, very clean and great staff. good location north of San Diego, small pool but very clean with sun and shade available. Breakfast was good and if you go before 7 am it is like eating at home alone. Good food located a short drive away with movie theater as well. Many choices and a good mid way point out of the direct San Diego area. Hope you enjoy your stay.

    « Decent stay with no problems »

    Nice average hotel that's about 20 minutes from downtown.Some friends and I stayed here during Comic Con and it was easy access onto the highways. The staff was friendly and helpful. When we called down for extra towels they were up within 10 minutes. If you don't mind a little drive to downtown San Diego, this is for you. The room could use a makeover but was fairly clean. There is a swimming pool and whirlpool on the premises. Decent selections for their complimentary breakfast. I would definitely stay here again if needed to.

    This Best Western had great customer service from the moment we checked in Juan greeted us with a smile, gave us a nice welcome. Roberta in the kitchen, was always refilling the food, helping with the waffle maker, and wiping off the tables for us. Housekeeping staff was very through in cleaning what needed to be cleaned, linens and trash removable from the room. Finally, this location sits at Miramar Rd and I-15 interstate. RT.163 & I-805 are 5 minutes. 20 minutes tops from airport and downtown San Diego.

    « Wonderful hotel and staff »

    My wife and I had to travel to San Diego for a major surgery for her at Thornton Medical Complex in La Jolla, CA. Not knowing if we would be there for a week or a month, and neither of us ever traveling there before we were unfamiliar with the area at all. Being budget conscious, we initially stayed at an extended stay hotel in the Fashion valley area. After a week of testing at the hospital we learned my wife would need a surgery and be in the hospital for possibly a month. The hotel we were in was adequate at best and not really a good commute to the hospital, plus my in-laws and daughter would be coming for the surgery so we wanted a hotel closer to the LaJolla area. I saw some good reviews for the Best Western Miramar and called to check on room availability for our family needs. Diane, the manager took my call and invited us to come and check out the property. Upon arrival I was very impressed with the cleanliness and upkeep of the hotel common areas and that carried over into the rooms also. Diane was more than helpful, worked with us on a very competitive rate for our rooms, and took the time to walk us around the property and showed us several rooms. Plus this hotel was only a short 15-20 minute freewayless drive to the hospital. It has an outdoor pool, hot tub area that is very adequate. It is adjacent to a freeway, I-15 and is easy to access your way around the San Diego area. It also includes a daily hot breakfast that varies a little from day to day, which means a lot if you are having an extended stay. Roberta was the employee who took care of the breakfast area, and she was always on top of things keeping items full and asking if anything was needed. I was there from April 16 thru May 10 2016 and had to extend my stay several times due to my wife's hospital discharge date changing, and I never had one problem with any of the changes. I will honestly say I was treated like I was family while I was there, with Diane, Roberta, and the other staff members inquiring how my wife's recovery was going,and they made sure to see her after she was discharged and before we checked out. This hotel is close to many restaurants and businesses. I would definitely stay there again. It was the cleanest hotel top to bottom I have ever stayed at, and I have stayed in 5 star hotels many times and they have nothing on this hotel. Factor in the staff and you will not be disappointed. If you are looking for suites and valet parking, than don't bother, but if you want a clean,updated,top notch staff in a safe area than this is the spot. Thank you Best Western Miramar hotel,Mr. Patel and staff, you made a difficult time for me and my family so much better than I could have asked!!

We were very impressed with DIane at the front desk especially as she helped us when we had an air conditioning problem by switching rooms for us.

    « Nice Place To Stay »

    The hotel is very typical for a Best Western Plus Hotel. It is about 15-20 mins away from the San Diego Zoo, the rooms are nice and clean and the breakfast is good, there is even a pool and Jacuzzi to relax in if that is your thing. There is plenty of parking and there are elevators to get to the 2nd and 3rd floor rooms. It is close to the freeway but with the A/C on I didn't hear much road noise, if it bothers you just ask for a room not facing the freeway but that may get the pool side which after 9 when it closes should be relatively quiet. The staff was really nice and friendly. I would stay there again, only thing is that there is a Carl's Jr and a Mobil gas station within walking distance... but nothing else too close for convenience purchases other than in the lobby at hotel costs.

    - Stayed over for a weekend on a shoe string budget - The rooms were no frills but definitely value for money - Parking was free and enough - Breakfast was complimentary and had the essential (Eggs, Cereals, Danish, Waffles, Coffee) - The most outstanding feature of the hotel: THE STAFF! - I have never seen a more courteous and helpful staff in the most expensive hotels. They helped us out multiple times without much ado! They were great to talk to as well - There are eating options right next to the property (Carl Jr., McD and a hotel attached to the Holiday Inn next door) Made the leisure weekend memorable

    « Easy stay »

    My last stay at this hotel was pretty eventful. Upon the arrival my pet reservation was not on file and the night concierge was more than helpful in getting that taken care of. Entered the room and found the toilet to be clogged with multiple bars of soap. Not sure if this was a malicious act of a previous renter or a careless maid. Easily fixed with some assistance from the night concierge in locating a plunger and some elbow grease from me. The furniture is beginning to show its age, the swivel chair would not remain elevated, and the refrigerator/microwave cabinet was broken and needs replacing. Overall the stay was fine and still cheaper than other hotels in the same area.

    « Theft by deception, or just plain stupidity. »

    Our company books rooms for our techs that travel all across the US. This hotel was paid through Expedia, however still charged the guests personal credit card. When we called the hotel to discuss this error we were met with a stubborn, rude attitude not willing to make the situation right. Shame on you Manager Manu and shame on you Best Western. Last time I checked this is stealing. So beware when staying here and keep a close on on your credit card charges.

    Having bounced around a few different places in San Diego, I was so pleasantly thrilled when I got to this Best Western. Everything is impeccably clean, obviously new, and aesthetically pleasing. Visiting someone on base, this location is absolutely perfect! The quick and easy highway access is a huge plus. My drive to the beach (La Jolla Shores) was an easy 20 minutes, helping gather information on where to eat as well as the closest shopping mall! I absolutely loved everything about this place!

    « Convenient location »

    I stayed at the Best Western Miramar off the 15 since it was close my daughter's house. The room was large with a king size bed and couch that made into a sleeper, clean and the service was good. The breakfast was the usual type that is provided from 6-9 am at hotels and fine for me. The rate was very good for the San Diego area since it not located outside of the main tourist area but the location adjacent to the 15 means that all the major tourist sites and beach is within 20-30 minutes. I highly recommend this hotel for someone traveling and stopping for the night or families on a budget.

    « Good for a couple of nights »

    Overall the hotel was ok. We stayed here for two nights, it had free wifi and breakfast. The reason Im giving 4 stars is because our room smelled really bad, it smell like cigarette. When I made the reservation I asked for anon smoking room but I don't know what happened we ended up with that one. Also, its a little bit far from tourist area. Price is not too expensive.

    « Thank you for the wonderful stay & hospitality »

    All the staff was great...but the one who stood out was Roberta. She was very pleasant every morning and did the best to accommodate us and our soccer team. Thank you Best Western San Diego/Miramar, we will be staying with you again if in that area

    « Old »

    The location was very close to MCAS. The hotel appears to be in need of updating. Cracked bathroom sink, furniture was worn/old. The breakfast they offered was okay. Scrambled eggs, link sausage, dry cereals, juice, coffee, small muffins and Danish.

    « Poor Quality of Room »

    Room was a non-smoking room and we were required to sign a waiver that we would not smoke in the room. Neither me nor my husband smoke and the curtains along with the air coming out of the room ac/heater unit reeked of cigarettes. The king mattress was not supportive to where neither me or my husband got a good nights sleep. Desk chair would not stay in position, when you set on the chair it would start sinking to a lower position by its self. Bathroom door and door handle, the door handle was ready to fall off and then the door its self was cracked where the door handle lead to the handle strike plate in the door frame

    « Convenient location »

    This hotel is very close to a main freeway in California and close to the military base, so we would have expected more traffic noise. However, we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was and except for the rain, which puddled outside our room door, we were very comfortable here.

    « ANTS »

    Horrible experience. We had ants all over our beds and counters. They moved us into a different room with even more ants. My daughter refused to sleep there yet it was too late to find another hotel. Stay away unless they guarantee no ants

    « My First Choice When Visiting San Diego »

    We have stayed here several times while visiting San Diego. We have been also been greeted by friendly staff, spotless lobby, room in perfect appearance, breakfast is very extensive. We do not think of any other place to stay when visiting San Diego for business or pleasure. Always a pleasant experience staying here.

    « Wonderful experience everytime we stay at this location »

The staff always friendly and helpful The breakfast has a great variety including waffles, eggs, sausage, and all the other breakfast items. This is our first choice when needing to stay in San Diego for business or pleasure Great location to everything.

    « Enjoyed our stay »

    We were in the area for a Medical referral. The Hotels closest to the hospital were very expensive and out of our price range. This hotel was only seven miles from the hospital and the rate was very reasonable. We had a last minute change of an additional adult guest. the staff was very accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return in the near future. The night clerk was very friendly and reassured us that we could easily reach the hospital time for the next days' appointment. the Breakfast hostess Roberta was very kind and let the guests know that more food was cooking as the serving area supply seemed low. The Day clerk was very courteous and even went back to the room to check for a forgotten phone charger part.

    « Don't stay here »

    After arriving at the Hotel we noticed the bathroom light was burned out. When we left the room we contacted the front desk to have it fixed. When we returned later that day not only was the bulb not changed but the room was not serviced. Came back to no towels and ants crawling in the sink and bathroom due to the garbage from breakfast not being emptied. The top sheet on the bed felt like a disposable sheet, the pillows were small and very uncomfortable, bed was very hard. The A/C-Heater rattled like crazy and would sound like a generator when it kicked on and ran. Very disappointed in this hotel. The front desk just did not want to help, told us no one was there to fix problems and to turn on all the lights in the room so the wife could see to get ready. Not the right thing to say!!!! Best Westerns are usually great to stay at but this one slipped.

    « Excellent Staff »

    We were staying at this location for a soccer tournament and would have breakfast each morning in the lobby. Me, my wife and daughter were very pleased with all the attention Roberta gave everyone, making sure we had everything we needed, restocking all the popular food items and keeping the area very clean. She made the experience a positive one. I would suggest the hotel check on the blow dryers in the rooms for replacement as the one in our room was non-functional. Not a major issue though.

    « A bit disappointing »

    A room was ready, but for some reason we had been scheduled for a smoking room. We asked for a ADA room and we were placed on the bottom floor which seemed to be a good location. However as the night progressed, the room turned into a noise fest...Soccer tourney kids and families were a bit noisy to say the least. Wifi was very good. Ants......drippy shower.....and a microwave that could not be turned off....door had to be ajar....leaving the light on.....that wasnt so bad. The breakfast menu was good, your general buffet style (eggs, sausage). Cereals, waffles, fruit, muffins etc..... Mattresses were not the greatest, but my wife slept so I was happy. You get what u pay for.......moderately priced. They did offer to take $25 off my bill....which I declined.

    « Awesome experience »

    We stayed for a soccer tournament in Oceanside called Surf Cup. We had to stay this far out because there were no other options but this Best Western definitely made it worth our while. They were awesome with the kids, granted us early breakfast times, let us use their community room for meetings and to bring dinner back. The hotel is very clean. They also monitor all areas using cameras which is great in terms of keeping the kids out of mischief and making parents feel safe about them moving around from room to room.

    « Not good.... Not worth the money!!! »

    The first room we got is at the second floor. There's a very strong smell when we got in and the light beside the bed couldn't work. Most important of all, the light in the bathroom worked bad... Kinda disconnected...Then we ask to change our room. It was ok when we first got in (at least better than the first one). However, we found out that the door of the bathroom is not ok as shown in the picture. The hair dryer doesn't work. Most important of all, there's an ant coming out of the soap that I just opened!!!!!!!!! It's disgusting!!!!! And it's shown in the second picture... ( I even took a video of that ant but just don't know how to upload it...) it's not worth the money to stay here.....

    « Good place to stop »

    « one night stay »

    Simple without much to offer nearby but it was clean, quiet, and the staff were helpful and polite. Great for being a central location which is close to everything. The only problem in the room was a leeky toilet which affected my sleep somewhat.

    « Week long stay, felt right at home! »

    Here for a wedding and family vacation. Easy access to San Diego and Temeculah, so was perfect for us. Staff is super friendly and will go above and beyond to help out with anything! My wife was heavily pregnant at the time, and the night staff allowed us to steal about 12 pillows to help her get through the night! Don't be afraid to ask for suggestions for food places near there, as everyone that was recommended to us was fantastic! If we are ever in the area again, this will be our first choice!

    « A weekend get away!!!! »

    My husband and I love to get away once in awhile to San Diego. Our son is a new marine stationed at Miramar MCAS...This Best Western is 2 miles away from entrance to the base. I have to say on each of our 4 stays we have had all positive experiences!!!! We especially look forward to dealing with Juan ! He is very accommodating to our wants and needs !!! The price is great too!!!!!!

    « Quick Business Trip on Halloween Of All Nights! »

    I had to drive down from northern CA for Sunday business. I left later on Saturday evening and I knew I would have a late check in so I called and let them know. When I arrived at 12:47 AM,Crystal(I think that was her name,I was tired) at the desk said my name as if she was expecting me??? I had called 5 hours earlier and spoke with someone else! She checked me right in and I was in my room on 2nd floor by 1:00 AM. This is my second time staying here. I like the location as it is close to the fwy's that I need to access that lead me to three different locations to where I needed to be. All areas of destinations were within 15 minutes of this Best Western, which to me is most important for what I do. I was just saying to my wife that I would stay here again with her and kids if we came in for fun. Mind you, it is not a beach resort location, but if you are in San Diego for multiple activities, I would recommend staying here. Parking has been good and I don't find myself constantly "looking out the window" to check on my vehicle. No squirrely people lurking throughout Hotel. I travel often on weekends, and it seems sometime Motels/Hotels can be party spots...not here, quiet on my last two visits. I come down to San Diego at least 3 times a year for business and will continue to stay at this Best Western in the future. FYI, They have coffee all night! Regards, Scott B.

    « Friendly Staff »

    We stayed there for 7 nights mainly because of proximity to the Miramar Airshow. The staff were friendly and helpful. The lady taking care of the breakfast room does a fantastic job of keeping it clean and organized. I must say, though, it would be nice to have a variety of jams to put on your toast - I got sick of only grape jelly all 7 mornings. The apples were inedible - hard as a rock and tasteless. California is renowned for its fresh fruit, but there was none to be found here. They have a very nice outdoor pool and hot tub, which we enjoyed for the first 4 evenings. The hot tub wasn't hot for the last 3 nights and in spite of several requests to do something about it, this issue was never resolved. No apology or explanation was given. When we checked out my wife realized that she had left a necklace in the room. We phoned the next day and fortunately a housekeeper ( "Gloria") had found it. We really appreciated her honesty and would like to extend our sincere thanks. In order to get the necklace mailed to us the hotel's manager "Manu" insisted that we pay for the return postage plus an extra $10 fee for them to take it to the post office. Two weeks later we received the necklace. Other than these issues, we found this hotel to be typical Best Western - quiet, comfortable beds, helpful staff.

    « Much improved »

    This hotel has made improvements in cleanliness of the room. It was average during a previous stay in July, and has made improvements to above average. The location and price is great. Parking is onsite and entry is controlled by 2 driveways which are under review by staff.

    « October 3-4 2015 At hotel for Miramar Air Show and was bitten by bed bugs »

    Hotel was fine in most respects, and I stayed at the hotel last year on the same weekend for the airshow. This year, on the second day, my fiance had marks on her skin aligned in a row of two on several exposed parts, like the foot, forehead and shoulder. We were not sure what they were and ten days later the marks are still on her. This hotel has had reports of bedbugs before, and after investigating this and examining the bites, they are from bedbugs. We stayed in room 302. We are currently having to destroy some clothes that were laying on the bed and thoroughly clean others. I would be careful at this hotel, and I hope the management can do something so it doesn't affect others. It is unfortunate, as the breakfast and ammenities otherwise were fine. BT

    « Great location »

    I was in town for the Miramar Airshow. This hotel is located right next to MCAS Miramar. Base access was 5 minutes away by car and the airshow could be seen from the room! The hotel itself has friendly and helpful staff and there is enough room to park your car nearby.

    This location is perfect for any business traveler coming to San Diego Miramar area. The rooms are always clean and fresh and the service staff is attentive and helpful. I have stayed here many times and it is always my first choice. Located close to many restaurants and easy on off freeway access.

    « Great experience at this hotel and would definitely stay again »

    The hotel was centrally located (easy access to all major routes), clean, and the staff were very nice. The room we were in was equipped with a refrigerator and microwave and there were also washing machines and dryers on site, which was extremely convenient. Breakfast every morning was very convenient. We would like to give special recognition to Marcia who was running the breakfast area every morning. She kept everything clean and stocked and she was always very pleasant to speak to. We definitely noticed when she wasn't working one morning. :)

    « Nice Stay »

    No complaints about the place. The staff was very nice and accommodating and was able to get us into a room even though we were early for our check-in and our initial room was not ready yet. They were very understanding of our situation.

    « Great experience would use your hotel again. Beds are very comfortable. »

    When it came time for breakfast there was a lady named Marcia that was amazing, polite and so efficient. We actually wanted to stay longer because of her. Rooms were clean, TV was nice and a great shower. WiFi was pretty weak but it still was free.
