We stayed here with our two children for 5 days. The rooms are nice and private. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The kids spent a lot of time in the pool and hot tub. Great location right off of I-5.

We booked two night. One side of the hotel is busy high way 5, so we chose a room on the other side. At night, there was low frequency mechanical noise. It was difficult to fall asleep then the whole family got waked up at 3AM, lying in bed till the morning. Then we checked out. At the beginning, I...

The Marina Gateway hotel is one of the nicest Best Westerns I have stayed at. The staff is always professional,helpful and nice. There are a lot of amenities, even a practice putting green. The lobby was decorated very nice for the holiday's too.

No doubt this is a great hotel in the city of San Diego, but what really makes it a stand-out is the staff. They are second to none. Have you ever tried to check in to a hotel and the staff are more interested in talking to each other rather than taking care of you? That doesn't happen at this...

Friendly, helpful staff- Easy to find , right off the freeway-I was able to get 3 rooms next to each other and they were exceptional and clean. The only thing that would have made this better is if it had a continental breakfast-( there is a Restraunt next to the building and you do get 15% off but the service...

Although an older property it's well maintained and fairly clean. Pretty quiet and quick check in. Not a whole lot of restaurants except Denny's and In N Out but well located on I-5. Recommend and a good deal if a little far out

I stay here often and always have great service and stay. This property is tucked away but has easy access to freeways and San Diego Trolley. There is a bit of a trail by the property that is great if you are bringing your pet.

I chose this hotel from high rated reviews I read. This was my Thanksgiving treat (for myself, solo trip, just to relax and unwind…) and this 2 nights/3 days trip to this hotel did not fit for my purpose. Hotel itself is nice, quiet from crowds and city, and very easy access to freeway (interstate 5). If you plan to...

This Best Western is a great hotel for those who prefer to be somewhere between San Diego and Tijuana. Nice location not to far from the trolley line that can take you into San Diego or down to the border. The facility over all is clean and the staff are courteous. The hotel is quiet except for on the weekends...
