Not a great value this time around.

We've stayed here several times in the past and have always thought it was a good value. Not this time! Perhaps it was due to the holiday weekend, but we found room prices to be well over 200.00/night - almost double the cost of a similar room in early May (only 4 months ago).
We were happy our spacious king room was ready a bit early, however it was dated and the bathroom could really use a makeover. Since it was still summer and San Diego was in the 90's it was necessary to use the air conditioning. And although the thermostat was set at 60, the room temperature never dropped below 80. The public and breakfast areas were insufferably hot and crowded and the breakfast just average.
We chose Best Western Yacht Harbor based on location (very convenient for us) and past experience. In the future we will investigate other options in the area as this visit was less than satisfactory. less

Sorry that this time your stay was not as great as the previous times. Unfortunately we do not control rates, like anything else it's the law of supply and demand, our summers demand is extremely high, any hotel in any US city on a high demand season will have much higher prices than usual. The rooms, hallways and bathrooms just got renovated with new flooring, new vanity light, new shower heads, faucets, bathroom walls and tiles. We actually finished our renovation in February.
The breakfast area was part of the renovation plan, it has more seating than the required by Best Western, unfortunately on a busy summer holiday weekend everything seams more crowded than usual. The entire lobby and pool deck got renovated as well.
Sorry you feel you need to look elsewhere but I can assure you will not find better service or facilities than our ours in our immediate area, no one else has free parking, free WIFI, free full breakfast and no resort fees.
