    « fantastic hotel »

    rooms were clean, front desk staff very friendly, breakfast service was well maintained. Being alone - the one concern was walking to the restaurant next door, which was recommended by staff and I did receive 10% off my take out meal - my concern was the walking between properties - the walkway was dark, right on the street - I don't often get spooked but I did that evening. The next night I ate before I got back to the motel. Take a flashlight. The entrance/exit is one and the same - it is a tight turn from the street. In general I felt safe

    Friendly staffs, clean hotel, and accessible to freeway. Breakfast is comparable to a buffet restaurant. Hotel price was very affordable and inexpensive. This is my second time to stay here and I'll make this hotel as my regular stay when I visit family in San Diego.

    « Superb Value Offering »

    Our fourth stay here. Convenient stop for visiting East San Diego area families. Remodeled and still fresh looking. Free chocolate cookies and bottled water at check-in. Easy access to HWY 8 driving to beaches, Zoo, Balboa Park, airport, makes this location less expensive than downtown locations. Complimentary full breakfast, hot eggs, hot breakfast meat, push-the-button-fresh pancakes, yogurt, juice, choice of breads, cereal, fruit, and coffee. Strong free WiFi and convenient free business center for printing needs. Little highway noise IF you keep sliding balcony door closed. Restaurants few feet from entrance. Friendly service personnel everywhere.

    « Wonderful place! »

    Came in to stay with my colleagues for work almost a week. The hotel itself is just beautiful. My room was quiet, never had any issues with other guests which I run into a lot. Thank you so much to your staff for being the best. I have to mention the pregnant woman in the front I believe her name was Karina. She helped her employee who jumbled our reservation, super professional this female was when dealing with the mix up. Every time we came in she engaged in conversation instead of just a quick hi and bye from the other staff. She made us feel at home and extremely comfortable, extremely sweet and not to mention her belly is adorable. Anyways, I will definitely be recommending this hotel in the future. Me and the ladies look forward to Karinas smiling face again and the cookies ! Can't go wrong with those cookies.

    It's not a grand resort hotel, but the best of its kind. Fantastic staff, great rooms, excellent breakfasts. Location is good, out of the chaos and noise of the tourist areas, but close enough to get wherever you need to be in a short time.

    « Group Stay »

    Our group stayed here for a weekend last Sept for a sporting event in the area. One from our group made the booking for this hotel but we opt to check in individually for payment purposes. The front desk was able to check us in individually without any problems. Our room was clean and located near the main road but we were able to sleep well. Our children were able to enjoy the pool every evening we were there. The breakfast food was good and the dining room was crowded but we were able to find a table.

    Don't usually fill out any reviews but we've stayed at this hotel before and find that it's been remodeled and upagraded through the years. It was an excellent place and choice to stay at while visiting family in La Mesa over the Christmas Holdiay. We would highly recommend a stay there.

    Exceptional staff! All smiles, friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and nice looking. There were power sockets in the bedside lamps for chargers BUT they were so loose, the chargers kept falling out. Unfortunately, this is the same condition as we experienced here over two years ago. Some freeway noise (welcome to California!). The owners REALLY need to spend a few dollars on the business center. The keyboard was so used, many of the letters on the keys had rubbed off ($20 to replace). The operating system needs to be updated (free). The printer was old and slow ($125 fix). Everything worked (sort of), which was great as I was in a work bind just before Christmas. The breakfast was well done and the room is inviting. There were all the cold items you'd expect. Hot items included eggs, bacon and potatoes. There was a auto pancake maker which the kids loved. The room was well staffed and empty/low food items promptly replaced. Coffee lovers NOTE: There is always free hot coffee in the lobby.

    Impressed with the friendly, efficient staff and the cleanliness of the grounds and hotels. All the basic amenities, like gym, beakfast, free wi-fi and free parking. The room was nicely appointed and very clean. The location was easy, right off the freeway. Not really close to typical San Diego tourist spots, but within easy short drive to several locations, including San Diego.

    Great place to stay if you are in the area!! All the staff here is friendly. We showed up a bit early but they went ahead and accommodated us with a room right away. They gave us cookies and bottled water to greet us. Our room was very nice. Very spacious and very clean. Room has AC, mattress was extremely comfortable and so were the pillows. Noise level outside and inside the hotel was well controlled. Quiet area and not a lot of traffic but easy freeway access. Breakfast was included, big selection of hot foods and the seating area was quite comfortable. Will definitely stay here again!!

    This may be an older hotel but everything inside seemed new. Room was clean, a very nice size, well furnished and actually had a small balcony. The king size bed was very comfortable. The free breakfast was very nice with plenty of choices. The hotel is very clean and staff is very friendly. There is a nice workout room that looks very new. There is a guest laundry too.

    « Best Place to Stay in La Mesa »

    There are very few nice places to stay in the La Mesa area and after trying most of them this is by far the best. The location is perfect. It is easy access to the freeway and easy walking distance to 3 good restaurants. Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and nicely appointed, toiletries are a cut above, there is a good selection of healthy options for breakfast (in addition to not so healthy but hearty).

    I stayed here on my trip to drop my daughter off at SDSU. It was a short, easy drive to the campus. The staff was friendly and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good. Breakfast room was very crowded, but I expected that. This hotel is close to just about everything. There are even a couple of restaurants just steps away. Plenty of parking. Maid service to the room was quick. What's not to like about this place? It's a very good value. I'll stay here again when visiting my daughter.

    Stayed here while our house was tented. Staff was super and it is close to home so made our daily activities easy. Room was great and the breakfast more than adequate. Even used the Jacuzzi and met some neat people there. Would definitely come back or put up guests. We were near the elevator but didn't hear it at all.

    We often stay at this hotel when we are visiting nearby family and are always impressed. The staff at this hotel went above and beyond to help us have a comfortable stay this visit even when staying with young kids. We were really impressed at the prompt, attentive service. Our kids loved the breakfast every morning! We really appreciate the great service at this hotel every time we visit.

    Dispite the screen door was damaged and the drape was torn, reporting this to the front desk resulted in us moving to a different, very nice room. Overall we had a very comfortable stay and will be returning.

    « So so »

    One big problem the hotel can't change is it's proximity to the freeway, and I heard it all night long. I heard whenever I was in the room. You can't get over it. The air conditioner that couldn't adequately cool the room should be able to be fixed. The staff were really nice, the room rate was fine, and on the plus it is close to quite a few restaurants.

    « Well Rested Stay »

    Our days in San Diego were so packed that we returned to the hotel late every night. It is a bonus to sleep in a clean, quiet and comfortable room like the one we had. We received a Best Western Rewards welcome package upon check-in at around. It has nothing fancy but the thought counts. The front desk staff made our check-in quick and easy, so we can rest for the night. Our room decor is very modern and well-kept. The breakfast room size is decent and they have great hot breakfast selection. If you return to the hotel late, the outside parking lot is usually full. Their covered parking spots are small. Big cars like SUV, vans or trucks will have to take up more than one spot. The hotel is very close to highway I-8 and is about 25 minutes away from the airport. For travellers looking for a quality hotel to stay, I highly recommend Best Western Plus La Mesa.

    « Just me. »

    Hotel was Very clean. Beds were Very comfortable. Free parking. Breakfast was plentiful. Very easy to find. It's right next to the highway. Staff was very helpful and courteous. It's a 10 to 15 minute drive to the beach. For the best meal in San Diego just walk next door to the hotel. It's a very inviting atmosphere. It has a huge bar and I decided to eat at the bar since I was on a solo trip. Instead of salad I got Cucumbers and Feta cheese That's the first picture. I followed that with the Prime Rib Small cut cooked medium rare. That's the second picture. Hope this helps.

    « Best Western Plus La Mesa Hotel Review »

    Pool was small and they had no towels. The front desk gave me some towels but didn't come to restock them while I was at the pool. They had parking under the hotel which helped to keep the car cool. They had a pancake making machine but no waffle makers. Breakfast room rather small.

    « The staff were great, the room, not so much »

    I went to the San Diego area to visit family after a business trip and although I could have stayed with family, I like to have a hotel so when I have had my fill of family bonding I have a refuge to go to. I chose this location being the price seemed decent for the area and was only 8 miles from whom I was visiting. I had a ADA room and when I went into the room, in the tub, there was several huge holes in the acrylic with jagged edges all the way around it. I brought it to their attention and it was the expected "Oh sorry, we didn't know about it. Thank you for telling us." and so on. As to the rest of the four night stay. I swear that it was one of the worst beds I have slept on ever. I think I would have been more comfortable on a hospital bed in traction. Actually the traction would have been helpful. My back and neck was in such pain, I set up a massage at my next stop the evening I left this hotel and to put that in prospective. I have never once had a professional massage in my near 45 years of life. I needed one after this place, that or an orthopedic. Also if you drive a big vehicle such as a crew cab pickup, parking on site can be problematic. The tub itself in the room was surprising again being it had such a high step over to get into, my need for an ADA room is due to the knee injury. Now to the good part. The rank and file staff at this location were great. Briana at the front desk was great and Ro who also works the front desk was an absolutely to talk with. At one point when I returned one evening, I ended up chatting with him for about half an hour that night before heading up to bed. They so offer breakfast in the morning which I normally don't partake in, but did on a couple of the days I was there and for what it was, it was decent food. I did bring my food back to my room which was just a few doors away but the dining area looked like it was kept clean and everything was fresh and hot.

    We were looking for an affordable quick stop overnight to break up our drive home. This hotel was affordable,clean, and quaint. The water and cookies at check in were a nice touch. No hassle or charge for rollaway which was SO nice. The roll away was just an extra mattress for the floor which was way better than those folded In Half beds that are super uncomfortable. Hotel was clean. Breakfast was good, kinda small area so go early to beat the crowd. Perfect for a cheap, clean pit stop to break up the driving.

Clean, nice decor, noisy being at the front..u hear the freeway noise. 2 lamps weren't working and the ironing board wouldn't stay up and the radio couldn't be reprogrammed to the correct time, I reported it all, but overall it was just fine. I would like to suggest to cleaning staff to use something else. The whole lobby and elevators smelled too medicinal. Friendly staff, smiling faces. Coffee in the lobby at 3am is great.

Room was always clean, staff was friendly, location was easy. Rooms are not super sound proof and you can hear other guests in halls and above. Breakfast not bad for continental. Room cleaning staff always put my kids stuffed animals in fun spots on the bed which my kids thought was great. Would definitely stay again.

    The employees were not very welcoming or friendly, our room was not very clean the bed had some sort of red stain on the blanket and there were bottle caps on the floor of the room. Breakfast was decent. Parking was absolutely horrible. We have a small vehicle but the parking spaces are not even big enough for a compact car, You could barely get in and out of your car.

    « The gem of Murray Drive »

    My mother lives in El Cajon so whenever I head down to visit family in San Diego I stay at the Best Western on Murray Drive. It is not easy to find a good hotel in the area. This Best Western is hands down the best. The staff is friendly, the breakfast is good, and the rooms are clean. My only criticism is that the sheets are scratchy. My hope is that by being a squeaky wheel regarding the sheets, that it will result in a softer night sleep for all of us moving forward.

    « Nice, but noisy hotel »

    Stayed two nights at this hotel while visiting family nearby in El Cajon. The hotel has only been a Best Western Plus for about a year. Prior to that it was a Holiday Inn. It's right next to the 8 freeway, so there is easy access to it. Our room was on the third floor (of 4) and about halfway back from the street (Murray Drive) and facing West. The room was very clean and well stocked. The front desk clerk, Luis, actually let us check in at 11 AM since this room was ready for occupancy. He was very polite and professional and saved us some "check-in cookies" since we would not return until after 8 PM. The other front desk employees were also great, but I don't have their names. Because of the freeway sleeping can be a problem if you are used to a quiet house as we are at home. It's noisy, very noisy! It's a nice hotel, but for that one reason alone I personally would probably not stay here again. Too bad, because in a quieter location I would come back without hesitation.

    « Terrific hot breakfast »

    We stayed here 4 nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's across the street from a really noisy freeway, so we kept our windows closed and the fan turned on for white noise, and the outside noise didn't bother us. Our room was clean and roomy, although the sheer curtain was torn and needed to be replaced. We felt like the breakfast was one of the best we've ever had at a motel. Scrambled eggs or omelets, bacon, sausage, sausage gravy, biscuits, three kinds of juice, yogurt, etc., etc. Really exceptional.

    My wife and I stayed here for several days while had surgery at Sharp Grossmont. The room was large and clean. The bed comfortable. The staff was very accommodating when we discovered we needed to stay an extra night, no hassles just a few clicks of the mouse. My wife enjoyed the breakfast offerings saying they did a very nice job. Convenient to the hospital, they offered a small reduction in the room rate for patients. My only complaints would be small pillows, loud A/C and road noise. Overall a recommended stay in the La Mesa area. I would certainly stay here again but maybe on a higher floor.

    The rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. The noise from the highway never let up unless I drowned it out with the TV or the air conditioning . If you need a magnification mirror or a good hair dryer bring one along. Amenities : Lobby Coffee, tea free 2nd floor has a breakfast which had many options. Two restaurants next door. Vending machines only take $ 1-2-5 dollar bills . Concerns : if you order food into the hotel the drivers come directly to your room the front desk doesn't call and let you know ... Today I was in the lobby (waiting for a ride ) and I overheard the following: the front desk employee was on the phone with a supervisor as a guest had returned to their room to find it open. The employee said that it happens as sometimes house keeping doesn't shut the door completely. No safes in the rooms ...

    Jessika (pictured) was very polite and helpful during my visit. She answered my questions in a very knowledgeable fashion without showing any sign of natural fatigue when having to answer the same questions multiple times on a daily basis. There was a problem with one of the doors; she left the desk and instantly offered assistance! The covered parking was appreciated! The only complaint is the pool was not useable as it was not heated. After an eight hour drive, it was something I looked forward to doing but could not!

    Even though we had a room away from the freeway, you could hear the highway noise quite loudly (but then, I'm a very light sleeper).

    The Best Western Plus at La Mesa, CA took care of many details to make a 2 night stay a real treat. Great breakfast with bacon, sausage, eggs, 1/2 & 1/2, etc. was very tasty. Very clean room with 'frig, microwave, wireless, & cable was convenient.

    « OK »

    I reserved a single queen bed room. I arrived late (9 PM - I did call ahead to advise) and was given a single king bed room at the south end of the bldg facing the freeway. The noise was only bearable because I was exhausted and collapsed in short order. This was the narrow end of the bldg, where the breakfast room, ice machine and vending machines are located, and there are very few guest rooms at this end (the two adjacent rooms were labeled for handicapped access / special needs, and were vacant). Perhaps because I was traveling as an older single male this was considered an acceptable room assignment. The hotel was clearly not full, so this was not an apparent issue. Again, I was exhausted and didn't feel like asking for another room. When I first checked out my room, I noted that a lamp and the clock in one corner didn't work. I checked further and found that both had apparently been unplugged by a previous guest who had left their shaver charger plugged into the outlets. I plugged both the lamp and clock back in, reset the time, and brought the shaver charger plug down to the front desk, informing them I thought the previous guest had left it behind. The response from the clerk was luke-warm at best, again as though I was bothering them. I inquired about getting a cookie upon checking in (a BW staple). I was informed that they were "out", and that they were only available from 3-4 PM. My son (who I was in town visiting) later informed me that when his grandmother last visited she also stayed at the same hotel and inquired late in the evening about getting a cookie, and the staff readily offered to make some for her. Different treatment? I too have a BW membership account and use AAA. What was different? The next afternoon (6 PM) upon returning from a day out, I again asked the desk clerk (a different one) about a cookie, and was again told they were "out". I spoke for a minute about my son's grandmother's experience vs my own regarding the availability or willingness to prepare a simple cookie. The clerk rolled her eyes and said if I wanted to wait "10-15 minutes" then she could put in a batch "for me", as though it would inconvenience her terribly to do so. I said I'd pass. What are they doing here, pocketing all of the cookies? Breakfast was decent. Mostly packaged goods (dry cereal & milk, etc), with a fair mix of prepared stuff (bacon, sausauge, bagels, pancake machine, coffee, tea, juice machine, etc), Better than "continental", but marginally so. Closer to airplane food than Denny's or IHOP. If you have to eat and jet first thing in the morning (I saw a boy scout troop get in there first thing when they opened) this is probably a preferred option, rather than going somewhere else for your breakfast. The room was very clean, although you must be careful when stepping into the shower. Although it has a low-step entrance, the floor of the shower is sloped slightly and is very slippery. It would benefit from some added traction. Definitely a lawsuit waiting to happen. Value? Somewhat. Personally, I will be staying at a nearby Holiday Inn I've been to before where I am treated with much more respect and save the $25 difference for a nicer breakfast.

    Stayed 2 nights, lovely room, fridge, microwave, tray table, big TV, but king bed a bit too hard for me. Tub/shower...I smiled when I saw their brand of toiletries "Stress Relief" Sliding glass door is great, however it's still pretty noisy with it closed. Need dual panes. Very nice breakfast spread. Make your own pancakes instead of waffles...that was fun, just push a button! Clean everywhere. Two famous, REALLY good restaurants next door. Also the BBQ Pit in El Cajon-very causal. (jump on freeway East, jump right off next exit. on the right) Friendly staff, all smiles. 24/7 coffee/tea/coco I didn't have time to use the pool. My only complaint is, when I put a Do Not Disturb sign up, don't come and plaster a notice on my door about your housekeeping schedule! Slip that under the door, if you must. When I saw a few of those on doors when I arrived, I thought they were "Nasty Grams" I didn't read them, just thought it must be negative news. I was offended that my do not disturb was a magnet to come to my door. That policy is in need of change.

    « Good property for the price »

    We visited San Diego for an SDSU college soccer tourney. My son chose to stay at a really low budget place. We chose to stay close by at Best Western Plus. The staff here is super friendly. Briana at the front desk is a delight. Helpful in every way with directions and suggestions. Another staff lady with dark hair checked on us at the pool. Because I was in the hot tub, I couldn't read her name tag. She was great also! Our room was spacious. The vent in the bathroom worked and was clean. The a/c was noisy but kept other noise out of the room. The room had a deodorizer smell that I don't care for. We had a king bed and a pullout sofa bed. Breakfast was great. Hot eggs, preformed omelettes, sausage or bacon, hash brown patties, a pancake machine that actually works, cereals, juices, coffee and teas. The best part were the staff members who worked in the breakfast area. They were always working hard and were very friendly. Kudos to the staff at this Best Western. The hot tub and pool are small but the price wasn't bad. Great location on the highway and close to SDSU. I would stay here again. Tip: Try Anthony's Fish Grotto next door. Walk over through the grotto from the hotel. The interior is a throwback to themed restaurants and funky. The exterior eating area is magical.

    I've tried 3 other chains looking for the perfect place to stay while visiting a 3 yr old granddaughter. This is the best so far. It's handy to my son's home and has an excellent breakfast so you're all set up for the day. Staff was super friendly. I was greeted with a goodie bag of snacks, bottles of cold water and their thanks for being a Rewards member. Biggest drawback was the location of an indoor soccer dome next door where play went on until at least 2am when I finally fell asleep. I'll ask for a room on the West side on my next visit.

    I've stayed here many times and always find the employees to be the best in service and helpfulness. The hotel has been renovated and is in much better shape than it was as a Holiday Inn Express. Close enough to downtown, Trader Joe's, Barnes & Noble, World Market and a movie theater. Breakfast needs some upgrading -- down with the "omelets" and add waffles, but otherwise pretty damn good.

    We had actually booked another room in San Diego and were not pleased for different reasons. We are so glad that the Best Western PLUS La Mesa had a room available for our dates. Immediately upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff; the woman at the front desk gave our children fresh cookies. Every single staff member we met during our stay was upbeat, welcoming, and friendly. The room was a decent size, clean, and had a microwave and refrigerator. Soaps, shampoos, and lotions were Bath and Body Works brand which was a plus. We didn't have a chance to utilize the indoor pool, but we did make use of the complimentary washer and dryer which was a huge benefit (one recommendation if you do stay here-- try to do laundry on slightly off hours as you might have to wait in line :)). The laundry soap was also complimentary. The hot breakfast was good; although the room was a bit small (I've seen this at many hotels anyway), everyone made do. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who rents a car in the San Diego area. However, there are a few restaurants within walking distance on either side of the hotel. We went to one Mexican restaurant which was great. Also, there is a large mall with a movie theater and other restaurants about a mile away. To visit popular points in Sand Diego, all you have to do is hop on I-8 West which is basically right there. Regarding the freeway noise, it really didn't bother us, and you can just keep your room fan on if it does. Excellent stay, and would highly recommend.

    The staff here was superb . Jim Haupert the manager made sure all my concerns were met . Everyone met or exceeded my expectations . I had 2 concerns on the property . 1 was the pool. (The pool turned green during the first week I was here it was immediately remedied within 48 hours time for the shock ) *anyone with a home pool knows that * the second was characters of I'll repute. He showed me video of everything I had a concern about and puts my worries to rest . My favorite host was the girl with purple hair . She went above and beyond as many did. However she went the extra mile to make sure our stay was pleasant. Also rose was amazing . Talk about someone who gets something done within a timely manner. Rose is the lady you want The main point I want to make Is that over 2 weeks potentially 4 at this point , while our home is repaired . The service , treatment , breakfast and. courtesy was top notch. I would recommend this place to a friend living out of town. A tourist looking for a nice place with easy highway access. Or a family looking for a break in the daily routine life presents.

    « Dated Hotel with some updates »

    If you read some of the other reviews I will touch on their subjects. The breakfast area is pretty small and cramped in the morning. That's the bad thing. The good thing is that you will actually talk to other people and socialize since you are in a bit cramped area. The food was what you would expect for a free hotel breakfast. Nothing stellar, but lots of BACON! I'm gluten-free due to an allergy and I it didn't kill me but my selection wasn't extensive. We stayed in a room on the 4th floor (I'd say penthouse but this hotel isn't in that class). While we didn't stay in a room close to the elevator, I'd recommend taking a room away from the elevator as it made tons of beeping noises that I've never heard from other elevators. It would probably drive me insane trying to sleep. Ice machine? Had to hit floor 3 to find one. There wasn't one on the 4th floor. As far as the room goes. It was comfortable. Despite setting the AC unit fan to run all the time (to try and remove the freeway noise) it cycled on and off with the air conditioning. The freeway noise is tolerable (I live in North Phoenix so I have some), but if you live in the sticks it might annoy you. I'm sure this was a product of our room so your room may not have this problem. The bathroom had a bad layout due to the construction date of the hotel. It shows its age and it is hard to have two people in it at at the same time. From what I could gather this used to be a Holiday Inn (bed linens still had the tags on them). If I owned the hotel I wouldn't replace them either. They were not dated and not worn out. I will echo what another reviewer stated that Jessika was great to check in with (How many people actually call out the staff for good things?). The room has a small fridge and it worked and didn't make noise. If you have an AT&T or T-Mobile mobile phone your phone will work wonderfully (at least on the 4th floor where my room was located). Great signal strength on both providers. I cannot speak to the function of Verizon or Sprint. The Free WiFi worked well. At times it was a bit sluggish at times but not the worst WiFi I have run across. Overall this hotel isn't a bad choice. It has some issues but it isn't priced at $250+ a night.

    You can hear the freeway noise all night long and every footstep above and every door on your floor open and shut. you can hear every shower's plumbing and people talking in room next door or outside in parking lot. It should not be a PLUS property that is a total rip off to Best Western customers. The only positive is the front desk staff but otherwise the place is really creepy and all night long there is noise, even from air conditioner-old type. The room rates are not good value at all. Anything over $70 for this very basic motel is not worth it. Was told that is the price Priceline and Expedia pays but then they charge $130 to $150 plus tax, also ripping customers off. Anyone who wrote positive review is probably working for the owner is my guess.

Corrina was in the breakfast room, and there was a mad rush for breakfast, with everyone arriving at the same time. The food ran out only because of the unexpected rush, and she made sure to get all the food out as quickly as possible. She made announcements to everyone that food was on its way, and that they were extending the breakfast hours so that we could all eat, and she said please no rush. That was great customer service!

    « Best Western Minus »

    Stayed here for 1 night as I had an early morning meeting at SDSU and this was the most convenient location. From that standpoint it was a good choice. The hotel rooms and hallways overall have nice decor. Views outside consist of large parking lots and the 8 freeway. Where this hotel falls down is 2 areas: 1) Being right on the 8, freeway noise is very noticeable even in rooms at the back of the hotel, and even with the fan or a/c on continuously. It doesn't really die down until very late, past midnight. 2) Attention to detail with upkeep and cleanliness. This is one area I consistently notice with the majority of Best Western properties and why I've stopped staying at BW as much as I used to. Specifically here: dirt stains on the duvet cover; dirt stains and pin holes on the window curtain; water stains on ceiling and shoddy job of attempting to cover it up; some strange red substance on one of the walls - hopefully not blood! This ruined what otherwise was a pretty nice room with modern touches and furnishings. I planned to inform the front desk the morning of check-out of these issues, however the only person on duty was a housekeeper who spoke limited English. I wouldn't stay here again but it may work for those seeking a cheaper alternative than in-town San Diego hotels and free parking.

    « Accessibility »

    Was disappointed that our accessibility room with roll-in shower had been given away, though we had booked the room three months in advance; however, the Director of Hospitality, Jim Haupert, did go out of his way to try and make it right. They did not have another roll-in shower room, but Jim did comp a room that was bathroom accessible. Traveling with special needs? Be sure to triple check after you have confirmed your room.

    I looked for an economical motel in the area for a local job and happened to stop here. Even though the rate was a little more than I budgeted, it was well worth it.

I can't say enough about this hotel, it's just been beyond awesome. The rooms are spotless, beds are ridiculously comfy, and it always smells so great! They have the best breakfasts every morning - omelettes, muffins, lots of bacon! And the in room coffee is great! The staff are all so friendly & helpful if we need extra coffee or toiletries. I'd like to give Rose, Jessika, & Louis at the front desk a shout out for the most excellent hospitality & outstanding service. You all ROCK!

    « Awesome hotel and beyond nice employees! »

    I recently stayed 8 nights here while visiting my daughter at SDSU. (Booked in advance for 5 nights but extended my stay because I loved this hotel.) My stay was above and beyond expectations. From the moment we checked in with your WONDERFUL front desk workers to the minute I checked out I was impressed with how clean your hotel was and how friendly your employees are. Every one of them: from the front desk workers to the janitor to the housekeepers and breakfast lady were beyond nice! And to top things off the price of a night was very reasonable plus you get: FREE wifi, FREE parking, FREE breakfast with a wonderful lady named Sandra, and FREE laundry services (with nice front loads and FREE Tide pods and dryer sheets). What an GREAT idea!!! The hotel and pool are small but perfect for my stay and I loved the location away from all the crazy, busyness of hotel circle. I LOVED the Mexican and Seafood restaurants right beside the hotel. Yummy & could walk to dinner. I loved how I could walk to Target and the mall during my stay. And the treadmill and workout room was awesome. This was my 6th trip to San Diego this year and my favorite place to stay. (and I have stayed in hotels that cost three times the money and have been disappointed!) I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and have already booked a room for my return in May! :) Thank you to everyone who works here who made my stay so enjoyable. Kuddos to you!!!

    « Good price »

    We were able to find a low priced room without compromising on our stay. It was clean, bottled water was offered upon our arrival and we had a small refrigerator in our room. They served a breakfast on the second floor, which had some hot items as well. The staff seemed friendly and attentive to our needs, however the parking in the late evening can be difficult as a lot of workers with large trucks stay at the hotel and some tend to take up more than one spot at a time.

    We arrived last night after a long day on the road. The staff was very friendly to us when we checked in. Our room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was awesome. There was a variety of food and the lady in charge of the breakfast area, Sandra, was such a hard worker. Both my husband and I were very impressed with her positive attitude and how spotless she kept the area even though she was the only worker and there were lots of guests.

    This is the bestest Best Western we have stayed at. We do travel very frequently for business and have frequented other chains as well, in this price range. This is the best hotel for the very reasonable room rate, with very good service. This is our third time staying here, three weekends in a row. Luis at front desk is very courteous, friendly and quick in checking you in. Breakfast and WiFi are wonderful .Breakfast host is very friendly, fast and keeps the items hot and stocked. Housekeeping staff also is very friendly and efficient. I noticed a tiny leak around the toilet upon checking in but was not too concerned, however, when housekeepers cleaned the room, they got it fixed. Parking is plentiful and the property is in very easy access to freeways and airport and shopping and all attractions San Diego has to offer. We will definitely stay here in future.

    Can't say enough about the staff. Everyone was pleasant and went the extra mile to please us. The breakfast was great, but the room on the 2nd floor where they serve it is quite small.

    « Highly Recommended - Convenient »

    Don't know where to begin to praise this place. Stayed their last year when it was a Holiday Inn Express and it was great then. Just started back with Best Western a couple of years ago and when I call this year for reservations was told this was now a Best Western. First morning met Sandra serving breakfast and she was absolutely superb. Could not say enough kind things about her diligence in keep the earing area clean and well supplied. She was personality plus. Then there was Gina in housekeeping and she saw to our every need and again a beautiful personality. Then we all met Selina at the front desk and we didn't think anyone could be sweeter. I cannot say enough about this place. We also met Sergio who was so pleasant as was the other gentlemen that worked the front desk. Our only disappointment was that the pool was not heated. When it got to 90 degrees we would have liked to have jumped in the pool but it was extremely cold. Sun only reached it until about 2:30PM and then it's in the shade.

    This hotel was more expensive than most of the other local hotels but it was worth it. The hotel was in a decent area, was well maintained, clean, quiet and the staff were pleasant and helpful. My room was large and the decoration was in good order. The free 24 hour coffee in the lobby was good and the breakfast which was included in the room price was exceptionally good. A minor downside was that the free in-room internet was very slow when I was there. I would definitely stay there again.

    all I have to say is rude front desk service and they charge your card after you leave for a extra night and then argue with you on the phone saying they did not charge a third night and if it was, I was told by the front desk manager to contact my bank then and dispute the charge.

    « Exceptional Service, but flaws in room »

    I was here only one night. The hotel staff were very courteous (sincerely courteous , as every time I walked by the front desk, I was asked if I needed anything and if everything was fine with my stay). There are plenty of nice FREE perks, like bottle water, laundry (self) services, and snacks (fruits , cookies). Location of hotel is off the highway near some restaurants (busy highway, so expect noise if on that end of hotel). I was in an upgraded room, that had a few problems. The tv didn't have sound working, and the picture would go in and out. Also, wifi was very slow (recall dial up back in the day...it was like that). Bed mattress is on the firm side, which I personally liked, but the pillows were too flat. Also, the sheets on the bed were not clean (I found several hairs on the sheets under the duvet, which was unsettling). The breakfast buffet was free, and standard for this type of hotel chain. I would give this hotel 4 stars if my room were a little nicer (and I think it may have been just my room, as I see others on TA have rated this hotel highly for their rooms).

    This used to be a Holiday Inn Express. I understand a few months ago it switched to a Best Western Plus. Holiday Inn had pretty much renovated before the switch, but I did notice hallways and lobby area seemed to have different colors than I recall previously. Still a good price for its convenient location. Lots of outlets in the room, which I like. Only negative, and it was this way previously,and it seems all hotels are moving in this direction, is the low lighting. For those of us getting older I could not distinguish between black or dark blue. It was hard to read a map or book with such low wattage. The low lighting also makes a place seem depressing, no matter how nice the furnishings. It did have good free wi fi. I will be returning, but I'll bring my flashlight.

    Best Western in La Mesa, CA has many perks, some of them unexpected such as free laundry facilities and free bottled water. Also free breakfast with a wide choice of food items. Our bed was just as comfortable as ours at home (and we are very particular). Room TV was as large as our home TV - 47". Each room includes a frig and micro oven and coffeemaker. Free coffee and tea in lobby. Very clean overall! They seemed to be constantly vacuuming the hallways and cleaning the lobby. The office staff are very friendly and want to make sure that their guests are satisfied. Fresh warm homebaked cookies are served every evening. What more can I say? The price is right, well, more than right. We highly recommend it! We stayed there for 36 days while our home was being repaired due to a flood caused by a burst waterpipe and we hated to leave. We miss all the pampering we had at the Best Western!

    My husband and I stayed here for four nights while visiting family. The room was large, clean, comfortable, and the free breakfast plentiful and good. My husband liked the free newspapers, too. There is a pool which looked nice but we did not have the time to use it. We had a minor toilet issue which was taken care of by the time we returned to our room. The staff was friendly and helpful. The one caveat might be that since this hotel is about 50 feet from Interstate 8 (and our room faced this direction ) there is constant traffic as a sort of white noise. This did NOT bother us in the LEAST but it might be an issue for some people. We would stay here again.

    « Great stay for Chargers game »

    We stayed at West Western in La Mesa specifically for a Chargers game. Our stay was for two nights. The staff was very friendly, offered us water bottles upon our arrival as well as our departure. We knew about there being a trolley to get to the Stadium and during check-in, the girls gave us the info on where to get to the terminal. It's about a mile. Very convenient! The room was very spacious and clean. The breakfast was different on Sunday and Monday morning. Plenty of cold and hot food, cereals, toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, on-demand pancakes, coffee, tea, juices, etc. I found surprising the check-out time was at noon, pretty late, I thought compared to other hotels where we've stayed before, which was great! There are only 3 restaurants nearby. Anthony's is a seafood restaurant and has a large parking lot between the restaurant and the hotel. Don't park there! The hotel staff warned us that overnight parking may trigger a tow! Regarding the trolley to the game, because La Mesa is about 8 miles away to the stadium, there was enough space to stand in the trolley. It got very crowded the closer we got to our destination. We left about 1:45 hours before the game. It gave us enough time to wait for the trolley, show proof of the trolley ticket at the Stadium, get lunch and find our seats. From Old Town to La Mesa on the trolley, it took about 45 minutes. I would stay at this hotel next time we visit the San Diego area!

    I was skeptical of staying here with my family since when I first went to book there had been no reviews written. When we arrived I found out that was due to the change in ownership (Holiday Inn to Best Western). We stayed two nights over July 4th weekend. We did not hear any freeway noise and the kids and I loved the view including the freeway as silly as that sounds. Breakfast was wonderful. The bathroom amenities I was so stoked about, took a picture to brag to my sister in law who was staying at another hotel (Bath and Body Works Stress Reliever soaps, shampoos, and conditioner). Pool was well kept and good temperature as well as the jacuzzi. Hot chocolate, coffee, and tea downstairs was always well stocked. Beds are very comfortable. My family and I can not wait to stay here again!
