We chose this Inn after finding it in the Rough Guide to California - after a long drive from Flagstaff, AZ, we were looking for a 2 night stay. When we arrived we were permitted to see the room and we decided to stay 3 nights - the place just had a lovely feel to it. We had a great... More

This is a nice place to stay. Location is centralized to most attractions and airport. Front Desk Staff was pleasant and accommodated our requests and needs. Breakfast is simple yet satisfying.

We've stayed at the Old Town Inn several times and are always satisfied. It has free parking, free breakfast, and a nice pool to swim in. The convenient location can't be beat! Only minutes away from Sea World, downtown, Seaport Village, Point Loma, etc...There is also a nice selection of DVD's available that you can bring back to your room.

This hotel is a good choice because of the value and location. You can walk to Old Town and it is a short drive to the zoo, points downtown, and to Coronado Island. Our room was clean (a must) and the staff was friendly and helpful. It is near a railroad, but the trains did not run late in the... More

Nice, clean rooms. Friendly staff. There are a lot of restaurants and shopping in Old Town that are close by, and chain restaurants a few blocks west of the hotel. We did not feel unsafe in this area as others have commented on. The parking lot is small and tight, but so is the rest of the parking in San... More

Pretty nice hotel, rooms are nice, beds were comfortable and clean. The bikers that left the first morning were loud and inconsiderate but that was by no means the fault of the hotel.

The room is ok and clean but not more, the pool is nice, the breakfast is "slim" but fair, the staff during the day is very helpfull and sympathetic (the night staff ( a gentleman) less). Lets say that with 35 US$ less you would feell a good value for money.

Top class rooms, very big, nice bathroom, great location of the hotel near Old Town and near public transport to San Diego Centre, also very near to SeaWorld. The buffet style breakfast was fresh and delicious, with bake-your-own waffles. Also the pool and jacuzzi where very welcome in this hot city.
