Super cute and clean for the gardening fan

Booked my room based on several factors. I was looking for a hotel in Dontown San Diego that had parking, breakfast and in room amenities like fridge, etc. Thought the pictues posted online looked cozy and added a homey feel to the property. All my needs were met. Hotel parking was only $10/day--way better than the $20-40 other, larger hotels were charging. Free Continental breakfast was mostly ready at 6am--great becasue I was in SD for a race and wanted to get some food in me before I went to the start line. Most hotels have breakfast at 7am, so pleased to find out I could take advantage of the food. Staff were friendly at check-in and saw them sweeping the courtyard/parking lot to keep it immaculate. Room was what you would expect for a Best Western of that age and size, but my friend and I had plenty of room. The room looked recently refurbished with clean carpet and newish bedding and the (small) bathroom had new tile, fixtures, glass shower and rainfall showerhead and good water pressure. Location is just north of the GasLamp district, so you get a great short walk to restaurants/nightlife without having to be disturbed by traffic and revelers in the wee hours of the morning. Best surprise feature was all the plants in pots and planters around the courtyard. My friend, a gardener, was speechless at the size, variety and colorfulness of all the plants. If you have ever stayed in a hotel with dead palms or bushes in the planters and felt depressed because of it,you will certainly appreciate all the flowers and succulents around the offices and rooms. Also a small viewing deck on top of the roof with more plants for meditation and quiet time. Would definitely stay here again!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are traveling with tween or teenage girls or just like fun jewelry, visit the So Good jewelry store on 6th Ave in the GasLamp. Store is bursting with fun, shiny, inexpensive jewelry (much on sale at 30-50% off) and the walls are covered in pink polka dot taffeta. Would be a great place to buy bridal party gifts or fun souvenirs other than mugs, t-shirts and othe SD branded items.

Great location

I went down to SD for a show at the globe and just wanted a cheap room for the night so I didn't have to drive all the way back to LA. I wasn't expecting much but it turned out to be a great stay, the rooms were clean, spacious and the location was perfect. We ended up just leaving the car there and just used uber to get around so we didn't have to worry about parking.

Average

It wasn't dirty at all, which was my main concern. Staff was nice, nothing special. Location is very close to the gas lamp district, which was nice. It was what I expected for the price i paid.

Good Location

Good location close to public transportation. Easy walk to many places or just hop on the trolley. We planned on using public transportation so this location was great. Only disappointment was we stayed on the first floor, room 112, and the floor above squeaked. So, every time the people walked around in the room it was very noisy and annoying.

Small island of comfort near downtown San Diego

A very clean and tidy little B W with comfortable small rooms and new furniture and bathroom fixtures, good TV and fairly quiet for mid city. Good lighting and security cameras for parking area. Free WiFi in rooms, and computer in lobby. Helpful and friendly staff, and carried our bags to 2nd floor. Breakfast OK with some hot food, good coffee. Good directions, dinner suggestions for Gas Light Village and local map. Floor squeaked a bit; might be a problem down stairs, but not for us. Lots of well tended flowers and shrubs.
