The location was great for shops and restaurants. Charging for parking when you stay at this hotel should be free, the parking lot was tight. Employees were nice! This would be a nicer place to stay if the hotel was updated in the décor and closets were a little bit bigger. Scenery was nice.

The desk gave us a coupon which we used, but it took a long time to get our food, so I called and told... More

Staffs are all really nice, willing to accommodate and serve. I needed my room before check-in time to change for a wedding and they made it possible. A close walk to the Old Town Transit Center which has bus and trollies to many places. An amazing hotel to explore San Diego! Short walk to the Old Town as well. The... More

This was our second visit with Western Inn and we have no complaints! Will stay again when we find ourselves in San Diego. Super close to everything - parked the car and walked to town. Perfect for our needs!

This is a family owned and run hotel in a great location in Old Town San Diego. Perfect for walking to the many restaurants and shops. Large rooms, very clean and comfortable. Could use a little updating but all in all the staff were very friendly and our stay pleasant. A free continental breakfast in the lobby was provided.

I did not expect the rooms to be as big and clean as they were. I was very pleased with the room and how clean it was for the price we paid. They charge for parking so we parked on the street which was fine because it was a quiet street. The man at the front desk was very nice.... More
