Verified Reviews of Best Western Plus Island Palms Hotel & Marina

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Lovely Hotel"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Great location, too, for the group of 41 adults I was in charge of. Only downside was the hostess at check in seemed to have no knowledge that our large group was even expected (or was checking in), which I had handled for many previous months with the groups person. Caused us all some anxiety there, plus check in took forever (over 45 minutes) as they were so unprepared. First time this has ever happened in 11 years of my group travel planning.

"Very Nice Property, Staff and Restaurant"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our stay was with 15 family members, 9 months to 73 years. The rooms are clean and well stocked every day. The staff is courteous and helpful. The restaurant food is good and not rushed or hectic. The pool area is good for children with a shallow area well marked from the deep end. Towels and chairs are adequate. The tennis courts are in good condition. A small playground across the street in the park is good for small children. We had three regular rooms and two suite rooms. The families with small children appreciated the extra room and small kitchen of the suites. The area is very quiet at night. Would recommend for a family get together, the airport and Balboa Park, USS Midway, are conveniently close. The main street connecting to the island drive has numerous groceries, restaurants and fast food eateries.

"Tropical island vibe."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This hotel is in an amazing location with water all around you. The marina view is amazing. Rooms are decorated nicely and super quiet. Restaurant has great food and employees very friendly. It also is very close to the airport and many activities making the location again another plus! Would definitely stay there again!
