I've stayed here twice and been very happy both times. We had a family room for four of us this time. Three beds, plenty of room. There is free wi-fi and a buffet breakfast. Great value. Recommended. You are in the middle of Old Town which is a good base with lots of restaurants and good access to transport via... More

evidence of leak on ceiling - black stain could have been mold; peeling wallpaper; skimpy continental breakfast & no place to eat it in the lobby, and only 1 lopsided office chair in the room, so one of us had to sit on the bed and eat. would not stay there again.

We asked for a nonsmoking room but the room smelled like a smoking room. Our luggage and clothes now smell like stale cigarette smoke. The worst smelling room we have ever stayed in. Woke up with a terrible sinus headache due to the smell. Manager would not move us to another room and we were not offered a refund. I... More

We were given two rooms for the price of one. The service was excellant. No one would even take a tip. Someone would be delivering what we had requested within 15 minutes. Amazing-- We plan to stay there again upon our little get a way to San Diego.

The Western Inn and Suites is convenient to Old Town--just a couple of blocks away, so away from the bustle, but the hotel is a little run down, and the continental breakfast is coffee and muffins--that's all. Being gluten free, that didn't leave me with any options. Not even fruit was offered. The Manager was very nice, but the people... More

Probably the least expensive place in Old Town. The room I was in is good sized, clean and comfortable. Walking distance (~4 blocks) to San Diego Avenue, where the main part of Old Town is located. No pool or anything like that, just a clean, comfortable room. The only minuses are I heard other people clunking around the room above... More

The room was very clean and super quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located at walking distance from the historic Old Town and fine dining and very close to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. I would recommend it to anyone
