Very Good - 4 out of 5

Sylvia, Edmonton, AB, visiting House of Blues San Diego Thu, 2 October 2014

Liked: Turndown service was especially nice. Very quiet hotel. Could not even hear others in their rooms. The decor may be outdated but it was very clean.
Disliked: Room service food was not enjoyable. Service was excellent but food was not great and it was cold.

Pleasant - 3 out of 5

Stephen, Indio, CA, visiting Balboa Theatre Mon, 27 January 2014

The Westgate seems a bit long in the tooth, and could maybe use an update. My wife liked the "frilly" element, while I thought it seemed wildly outdated. Too much so to be considered as a pleasant representation of the charm of a certain bygone era. It was like being at my grandmother's home when I was quite young. All that was missing were the plastic slip covers on the furniture. Also, maybe they could do more to ensure that all services are functional. If you do stay here, be prepared for lots of outside noise.

Liked: The hotel was clean and had a convenient location.
Disliked: The staff were unable to help with a reservation in the hotel restaurant, and didn't offer any alternate suggestions. There was one ATM in the entire hotel, which was out of service. The bed, while not the worst, was not particularly comfortable either.

The inconveniences were enough to...

Liked: I liked the size of the room and the cleanliness. The staff was very courteous and welcoming. We had a nice view of downtown.
Disliked: Starting early in the morning, so much noise. Construction next door was so loud. The staff never mentioned it upon arrival. On Tuesday night there was an outdoor party at the hotel on the 3rd floor, we were on the 8th. Loud music and award announcements still going at 10pm. It finally stopped at 11. I don't mind partying but it was obnoxiously loud. Very disheartening. The wait on food/drinks at the pool was so long. And lastly, the beds are not like clouds. I don't like leaving reviews but I couldn't go without talking about the inconveniences.
