Stayed for one night after late flight in, room was on first floor and very damp-feeling and musty smelling. Nice breakfast and staff was nice as well. Served its purpose for a quick night's stay but wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer.

Perhaps we have been pampered too much by our previous 3 stays at different locations, but this property is not the standard. On the plus side, we were checked in early on the mobile site which is a really nice option. There is no doubt that the hotel is extremely convenient to Old Town. Also, the included breakfast was very...

My arrival was delayed and there were some complications at check-in, but Adriana at the front desk was cheery and professional and lovely. She remembered me the next day when I saw her, and my sense is that she loves what she does and loves interacting with guests at the hotel. I would visit again.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff all very friendly. The room was very comfortable and right in the heart of Old Town with lots to see and do within walking distance. There is also a secure underground parking facility which is great since parking can be hard to find in the area. I loved it here and will use...

We were looking for a break from the Canadian winter and found it in San Diego. Our location in old town at the Fairfield Inn and Suites was perfect to explore the city. Staff were very friendly and accommodating; the breakfast was very good.
