Riverbank, California1 contribution
My boyfriend and I stayed at The Westgate Hotel. The staff was so friendly, especially Sarah. Sarah was so kind and sweet after a long and hectic week, she made sure we were comfortable and tended to during our stay. Our room was beautiful, we got a single with a balcony. The view was breathtaking, you could sit and stare outside for hours. The valet was very kind as well, they always greeted us and made sure to take care of our car. The Westgate is perfect to stay if you want to be in the city and walk downtown. Overall I would highly recommend staying at The Westgate Hotel, it was a lovely experience.

What a great place to stay. I don’t think photos do it justice. Our room was great. Very clean a so spacious. Lizzy at the front desk took great care of us, along with Beatriz the manager and Paul and George at the valet. Great bang for buck and a perfect spot to enjoy San Diego! We will be back.

Beautiful historic building with impressive decor. Staff who we spoke with were professional and courteous. Room was nicely decorated and we were accommodated with bag storage (because we were unable to carry heavy backpacks around all day until the 4PM check in time). We were given a room a few hours earlier which we appreciated, but it was unfortunately right above the infamous trolley - and it honks just as much as everyone says. Along with a next-door guest playing loud music late into the night for the benefit of her friends, we did not get much sleep at all despite having earplugs. We did attempt to call the front desk about the music but the room phone didn’t work for us. We had a 6:15AM flight and an Uber at that time to the airport cost about $22. We had expected an airport shuttle based on the booking site we used, but were told on check in there is no shuttle. We also thought from this booking site that we had paid in full, but we were charged an additional $20 resort fee on check in. So it might be worthwhile to call the hotel prior to booking to get the correct price of your stay.

Dear R1945JMsandras, Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. We are glad to hear you found our staff professional and courteous. We are sorry to hear you did not receive accurate information about shuttle and resort fees upon your booking, and for the inconvenience of noise from other rooms and trolley. We hope you can return in a future visit to San Diego. Please contact us directly as it will be our pleasure to pre assign a room for you on a quieter side of the building. Best Regards,
