Hardly 5 min walk from Old Town. Not exactly in Old Town. It's a walk through a parking lot but not bad at all. Was pleasently surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel. Room was excellent and both staff members we talked to were friendly and helpful. Free Parking and Continental Breakfast available. Now we know why this hotel is...

The hotel is located within walking distance of Old Town, but you have to cross the Pacific Coast Highway, through a parking lot, and under train tracks to get there. This is an industrial area. The front desk said that they've never had concerns with guests walking at night in the area, but I wouldn't. The room was very clean...

Staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms comfortable and clean, well kept grounds with beautiful flora.

We recently took a trip to San Diego for the first time, and after having read many reviews on many different hotels located in San Diego we decided to book a week at the Old Town Inn.

I had a terrific stay here at Old Town Inn. The rooms were nice, the service accommodating and the location was perfect for a Cinco De mayo celebration in Old Town. It come with free breakfast, a nice pool (awesome patio) and free wifi. Honestly couldn't have asked for more.

Came to town to pick up my son upon his arrival back into the states from Semester at Sea. After traveling around the world, San Diego was the last port of call and when I found out he was accompanied by a few friends, we needed a centrally located place for them all to stay!

We stayed in the older wing which I think must make the difference. The lobby and breakfast room and pool area and the rooms surrounding those are charming. Our room in the older building was motel like. Towels were dingy and scratchy. The people running the place are very nice and the wifi is free with assistance if you need...
