Thank you to all of our wonderful guests who continue to choose us from among the many hotels available in San Diego. We're a family-owned and operated independent hotel in San Diego for three generations. We are built in the classic roadside inn style with exterior corridors, you'll be greeted by the SoCal sunshine as you step outside. We're in a central location, in a commercial pocket – we joke that we are nowhere but right next door to everywhere. We have a wide selection of room types, including studios with kitchenettes. We have NO HIDDEN fees. Free parking, WiFi, continental breakfast, and a DVD movie library.

Response from Stevie Kindt, General Manager at Old Town Inn
Responded 1 week ago
Hi 351sheilak, Thank you for this wonderful 5 star review and for the staff compliments! All of our staff from front desk to housekeeping and maintenance work endlessly to provide the best of themselves everyday so I'm happy to hear you were satisfied with the service of our staff and appreciated our beautiful gardeners work. They do an amazing job at upkeeping all of our flowers. Yes! One of our greatest features is our location, as it is a fantastic jumping off point for exploring San Diego. We are only a short 10-minute walk to the Trolley Station and Old Town Historic Park area, close proximity to the I-5 and I-8 freeways, and only a 10-minute drive to the major attractions such as the Zoo, SeaWorld, USS Midway, downtown, and the beaches. Thank you for choosing Old Town Inn as your stay in San Diego. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back in the future.

This is a very nice, family run inn. Garden setting. Lovely pool. Excellent service. Very close to Old Town. There is now a free public shuttle from the airport (inquire at airport). Very close to public transportation at Old Town Transit center!

We booked the jacuzzi suite for my birthday Nice spacious room, really enjoyed the bed it was soft . Room did smell a bit but I’m assuming due to jacuzzi. Other than that really enjoyed our stay . Breakfast was pretty good. I didn’t realize there was complimentary breakfast until we checked in .

We stayed 2 nights here after our cruise. We arrived before check in and they were gracious enough to keep our bags while we went site seeing. The room was clean and well appointed. The bed and pillows were quite comfortable. It was within walking distance from Old Town San Diego and the train and trolley station. We would definitely stay there again.

My daughter and I just stayed at Old Town Inn for 4 nights. We found the rooms clean and the beds comfortable. We liked having the little kitchenette plus the breakfast provided. We thought the staff friendly and helpful. We found this Inn to be centrally located to the outings we had planned. The Inn is walking distance to Old Town and the trolley center if you choose to use this service.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for sharing your feedback with the Trip Advisor community! Were delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay with us as well as our free complimentary breakfast which consist of Belgium Waffles, Steel cut oatmeal made fresh each night, bagels with cream cheese, pastries, 3 types of cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, OJ, coffee, tea & water. We feel we have a well-balanced breakfast option for our guest to choose from during their stay with us. Yes! Our location is a fantastic jumping off point for exploring San Diego, as we are a quick walk to Historic Old Town and across the street from the Old Town Transit Center so you can get around town with ease if you want to leave your car behind. The trolley will quickly and easily get you to downtown’s Gaslamp District, Convention Center, Petco Park, the USS Midway Museum and Seaport Village to name a few. We are less than 3 miles to Sea world, 3 miles to the airport, and less than 10 minutes to Balboa Park and the Zoo. We are also across the street from a pickup location for the “San Diego Flyer”, a FREE electric shuttle bus service between San Diego International Airport (SAN) and Old Town Transit Center. The Old Town Inn San Diego is a small, independently family-owned hotel, currently the third generation that prides itself on providing the best possible stay for each and every one of our guests. It was a pleasure having you and daughter as our guests. We look forward to your next visit to us! *Book Directly with Us – For the Best Service, Selection, and Value! Yours in Hospitality, Beatriz Bustamante

A hidden gem in an industrial area. Very near transit center and Old Town San Diego. Staff all around was exceptional and made me feel like a valued guest. Higher ratings than many notable high profile brands. I will seek out Old Town Inn when traveling and highly recommend.

Dear KawenaL, Thank you for the awesome review and for choosing to stay at the Old Town Inn. We truly appreciate your comments. The greatest compliment we can receive from a guest is the knowledge that they enjoyed their stay so much that they would be willing to recommend us and would come back to stay with us again, Thank you! The Old Town Inn is all about providing the budget smart traveler with an affordable and memorable stay, and we appreciate your feedback Trip Advisor is all about guest satisfaction and we tend to rate highly with guests who want to get the most for their dollar, value, cleanliness, and who appreciate genuine hospitality and have done their research. As you mentioned, our area is slightly industrial. One benefit of being in a more industrial setting than a typical commercial setting is that the majority of our guests, like yourself, enjoy the convenience of our property. I am so glad that our location made getting around somewhat easier in San Diego. We like to joke that “we are nowhere, but next door to everywhere!” On your next visit, book directly with us by going to our website or by calling the front desk, we have many room types that are not always available on our booking partner’s website. Yours in Hospitality, Beatriz Bustamante

I felt welcome from check in to check out. Sydney was wonderful and efficient, she had such awesome recommendations for me, as far as, hikes and birding adventures. The maintenance fellow also was very friendly and told me to, "Have a great day", each time I saw him. The location was exactly where I needed to be for my activities, the breakfast was wonderful and a perfect way to start the day. My room was exactly what I needed. I slept great, the area was quiet, and the shower was right up there with the best showers ever! I feel so fortunate to have found this cute and warm hotel and can't wait to return!

Staff were great. They recommended good restaurants and activities. Breakfast was basic but had enough options. Appreciated the hard boiled eggs for protein on top of regular carbs. Cute place that had exactly what I needed. Area is bit sketchy for walking but close to freeways and very close to old town area.

A very good room near the Old Town State Park as well as public transportation stop, so the location is really good. Some may find it small but it was perfect for us. The staff is very friendly and can help you find whatever you need. We had a little trouble with temperature regulation but nothing to complain about. The bed was very comfortable. Offers you basic hotel breakfast options but there is a good breakfast place 3 blocks down the street if you prefer a more extensive and hot breakfast. There was maintenance staff on-site several of the days we were there but that shouldn't be taken as a negative as I did not find anything in disrepair. It all appeared to be improvements being made which I take as a very good sign. Old Town Inn is a good value.
