The Western Inn is located within easy walking distance of the Old Town State Park and is only a short (10 minute) drive from San Diego Airport, While the hotel needs a bit of refurbishment (the aircon in my room was a bit temperamental and there were puddles on the floor of the 3rd floor corridor) I had a very...

We have stayed at western inn for the last 4 summers! You can walk to all of the shops and restaurants of Old TOwn. Plus, the trolley station is a walk away to all points in the city. If you need nice clean rooms and quiet, this is the place.

The hotel is older and needs some care, but the owners are attempting to update it by installing some new furniture in the rooms. They could use a few more lamps in the rooms, too, as the lighting at night was very weak. We had a suite and it was very spacious and reasonably clean. The breakfast is minimal. We... More

Couldn't get into my usual hotel this time and this was the only other one in Old Town I could afford. When I first pulled up I thought, "oh-oh, what did I get into?" It looks rather run-down from the outside. But I was greeted pleasantly and found my room to be nicely decorated and very clean and comfortable. A... More

Fairly clean room. Hotel shows its age. Was only around $100 compared to $150+ everywhere else. Location is very good. Safe area. Parking garage is really tight especially if most of the spots are full. The $8 parking charge is ridiculous for the parking facility offered. Took about 5 minutes to get Ford Fusion aligned and parked in the parking... More

We took a room for 100$ per night. Hotel is old and yes. carpets sometimes are not brand new. But hey! It was quite clean, it has parking (well, some 6-8$ per night), it has free coffee in the morning and this hotel has a GREAT LOCATION! Seriously, it takes less time to go to the Sea World or Zoo....

I had a fantastic stay at the Western Inn in Old Town! Sanjay and his staff were so warm and welcoming. Their accommodations are great and the location is simply perfect- easy to take public Trans but right off the 5 freeway for easy car access. They offer discounts to local hotspots and I couldn't imagine a friendlier staff. Thanks... More
