Beautiful Hotel right on San Diego Harbor”

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times and it never disappoints. The property is beautiful with San Diego Harbor to the front and a marina to the back. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. There is a pool area onsite, although I have never used it or even seen it. The restaurant is good and will accommodate take out orders. Even though the property is near the airport, there is no noise at all in the rooms. There is a laundry room available to guests which was nice but hard to use simply due to popularity. It also appears to be a shared laundry facility for tenants of the marina. I had to try several times over 2 days to get a time when a key was available. Overall, this is one of my favorite hotels in San Diego!

Nice location”

Sick was cracked in half, water splashed everywhere because of this. The tub unit was laid overtop another tub....I slipped towards the drain because it’s on a huge slope.... had to fight to stand towards back of shower.... room filled with fruit flies? Had to cover my food and drink to avoid them getting in food.... bed was comfy.... hotel was half empty so not sure why they chose to buy me in 1st floor corner with view of cars instead of a nice view overlooking the harbor. Had to go back to restaurant to get condiments and fork after being told they were in the bag when I specifically asked.

Neither good nor bad”

Didn't like that I had to pay to park or that check in wasn't until 4. The staff was really nice though and the room was clean. The location was too far from any attractions to walk to except the marina which isn't public. Odd thing that happened was that a large number of people at the pool weren't actually residents and three teens went into the restroom to make out (or more) with each other (which my 9-year-old son was very attentive to so I had to explain things to him). Their dad was there in the hot tub at the same time and joked that the teens were having a "bathroom party". Then eventually they left because they weren't guests there. Was a very strange night.

My Stay in Best Western Island Plams Hotel, SD”

Clean rooms, spacious and the location is great
Front Desk staff needs more concentration, they booked me a room and the following day another customer opened up the room while i was in the room because he was given a key, the staff did not either update their system that the room is occupied or their system is not efficient to track the room status. Rooms in the corner, by the Door Exit, are very noisy, exit doors slams with a loud noise when guest is leaving the building making it impossible to sleep or to relax. I raised this concern to the hotel front desk. Also bathroom flush tanks are programmed to flush automatically every while and then which makes it difficult to sleep with that noisy flush tank sounds.

Location and rooms are good so the hotel management should improve the service by solving all these mentioned issues and then it will be one of the best hotels.

cheaply built and underílluminated room, no net ”

View on marina, friendly staff, airport shuttle

The room are very cheaply built, so everything happening on the corridor (or in the neighbouring room) is perfectly audible - and whatever you do is heard by others. The room was small and dark, no real locker and the beds were too soft (even on the hardest setting). It was on the ground floor next to a quite busy boardwalk, so opening the blinds in order to let a little bit of light in resulted in having dozens of interested passers-by checking us out within the room. The location is great (hard to get there and away, other than to the airport, there's no public transport), but the rooms were unsatisfying.
