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

There is no wifi on the 3rd floor and the only thing that your smart phone or iPad will get for the wifi id is "Stayoffmywifi". If you want to save $$$, don't pay for parking, because there are curb side parking spaces around the Inn.

Hello We are sorry for the problem you had for the wireless problem on the 3rd floor, we did find out that our access point went down but we are able to take care of that problem. Once again we are sorry that the wireless did not work while you were staying with us. More

The room was large and accommodating and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great once you learn your way around the city. A GPS would be helpful. The window shutters were inadequate and curtains would be most beneficial. The bed size was great but it was not comfortable and the hotel as a whole could use... More

This place has an amazing price being that it's summer and in the middle of the historical park museum. 4 min away walking distance to all restaurants and museums and bars. PERFECT!!!!

After spending so much time researching the best place to stay in San Diego but at a sensible price I finally chose the Western Inn. The location was very good, around a 10-minute walk away from the Old Town Transit Center which is where most of my public transport needs were for the Trolley, Coaster, Pacific Surfliner and buses.

The Western Inn was clean and tidy. It is however a budget/discount hotel. The amenities are very limited, (no desk chair, ancient TV, external noise from freeway)but if you are looking for an inexpensive place to "crash" this place will work. Proximity to Old Town a plus. Would not recommend families.

I've stayed here before several times over the past 10 years and it's the only hotel I stay in when I visit San Diego. Staff are friendly and the rooms are more homely looking. You can walk to Old Town from the hotel. Great place to stay.
