I was surprised to find this hotel for < $70 / night with a guest rating of 4+. Apparently this used to be a Best Western property and they are trying to win back the customers, that translates to good service and value for money for customers! Pros: - Location: Right next to I-805 exit, close to sea world, airport...

The rating is 2.5 really... The review comments from others are accurate: older hotel in need of updating, funny smelling cleaning fluid, soft (as in needing to be replaced) mattress, inadequate AC, and breakfast not worth bothering with, The only redeeming qualities of the establishment were the friendly and helpful staff, the easy access to other things in San Diego...

I stayed here for three nights in April 2017. The place was fairly clean, although some of the drawers in the room were a little sticky. I was on the backside, so ti was very quiet at night. The hotel has free wi-fi, but I was not able to stay connected for very long. I was using an I-phone 7....

I recently stayed here for three nights. It's located about 10ish miles north of San Diego downtown. The 805 freeway is right there so easy access. After I turned in the rental car I found public transportation useful. I thought the room was OK. The bed is on the soft side that I found comfortable. There's a mini frig and...

This was a nice motel for a very reasonable price. We are happy we chose the Pleasant Inn for our five days visiting friends and family. The staff are so friendly and helpful, but more important, our room was very clean, the facilities are well maintained. The motel was easy to find. It is not located near the main tourist...

It's a good 10-15 miles outside of anywhere in San Diego you would really want to be. However, an uber ride is pretty reasonable ($10-$15)and the price for a spendy city such as San Diego is very reasonable. It's located in a strip mall area. I believe it use to be a best western that has recently converted to a...

The Pleasant Inn is the former Best Western Golden Triangle. The property, rooms, and service are just as good as before, but now a bit less expensive. The rooms are large. They are extremely clean and well kept. And- the mattresses are fantastic. Centrally located- I find it perfect for my needs.
