With a waterfront location close to Ocean Beach, SeaWorld, and the San Diego Zoo, the Best Western Plus Island Palms Hotel & Marina is a hotel in San Diego, CAs idyllic Shelter Island neighborhood, earning TripAdvisor Top 25 accolades thanks in part to our incredible views and resort amenities.

Our rooms overlook our private marina, San Diego Bay, or the downtown skyline, and each comes with free high-speed Internet, refrigerator, and microwave, because whether youre here for a romantic bayside getaway or rooting for the Padres at Petco Park having the comforts of home matters when youre on the road.

We take full advantage of our waterfront location, and so can you. Host an event for up to 200 in our unique waterfront meeting venue, overlooking Point Loma and our private yacht marina.

While youre here, enjoy a friendly match of tennis, take a walk on the trails along the water, and work up a sweat in a fully loaded fitness center with universal machines, elliptical, and stair climber.

The most unique amenity at the Best Western Plus Island Palms Hotel & Marina is the marina itself, which welcomes sailboats, super yachts, and cruisers as the closest yacht basin to the open ocean.
