Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This is a very noisy old hotel that does not even come close to usual Best Western standards. So loud that you can barely carry on a conversation in the hotel parking lot, due to loud traffic. Rooms are old and smelly. Thin walls and no double-pane windows. Bedding is old, creaky and very uncomfortable. Do not stay here!!!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 December 2016 via mobile

My first day I arrived early and checked in, but I never saw my room. When I returned in the early evening and realized my room was not my preferred choice, I went to the front desk and Luis graciously took care of my request to move rooms and sent me off with a small bag of cookies that had...

The room was good and the location was near the job I came to work on. Parking was kind of tight for my work truck. But everything else was good. My wife and son came to visit and they liked the room and area.

La Mesa BW is our usual stop when we need to be in the San Diego area. They have never let us down, and this trip was no exception. The staff, their attitude, friendly and efficient manner, always makes for a very pleasant experience when you are in San Diego.

The La Mesa, CA Best Western Plus is clean, comfortable, friendly and accommodating. I was so pleased that they were able to adjust my reservation to arrive unexpectedly a day early. Of course, I did call a day ahead to book...but still they needed to move things around a bit to make it happen. Thank you to the front desk...

If I could give 10 stars to the employees of this hotel, I would. We were greeted on arrival by Brianna and Luis Moreno. They were professional, friendly and welcoming.
