Very good price, clean and big room. Peoples who's working there are super nice and helping. Close to the old town and of the airport. We recommend that hotel. We definitely going back there next time.

I've stayed at the Western Inn about 6 times in the last 2 years and will do so on future trips to San Diego. The hotel is in a great location, 10-15 minutes from the airport, right on I-5 going North, close to bars and restaurants of Old Town and 5 minutes walk from the trolley station to take you... More

Western Inn is conveniently located in the Old Town section of San Diego. Old Town has access to the tour trolley, shops and great dining. We will stay at this hotel on our next trip to San Diego.

I am not sure what to focus on more here, the hotel itself or the level of customer service I received from this hotel. Sanjay the manager at the front is awesome and really makes you feel helped and at home. In fact I found myself speaking with him about various things for more than 30 minutes one day. The... More

The rooms are big & comfortable, and clean. I heard no street noise. The fridge & microwave were nice to have available, & the service was very helpful. No, it's not a fancy place, but it was very close to MCRD, and it met my needs just fine. I look forward to staying there next time I'm in San Diego.

This is the best "little" hotel in San Diego! Centrally located in Old Town, it has very reasonable rates, walking distance to Old Town, an underground parking garage (free!), continental breakfasts, suites available, close to all of the parks, Seaport Village, Petco Park, and all of the shopping. Don't be "put off" by the fact that it is an older... More

This hotel is dangerous! The elevator doen't have the safety feature where it opens if something is still in the doorway. The decor is awful, it smells, there were huge cracks in the walls, the bathroom was disgusting, and everything was old and damaged. The rooms are depressing and oppressive. I could have never slept there! Third world countries have... More

The host was very friendly and service-minded. Even though our coupon was valid for only one night, he accepted it for both nights, and we didn't even ask. The room was big - twice the size of standard motel rooms - and it was clean and neat. It wasn't very modern, but the standard was still better than average. At... More

We started our vacation in LA and traveled to San Diego for a few days to visit with family. I had a difficult time finding a suitable hotel in the San Diego area in our price range. I look for good reviews, under $100, location, free wifi, free breakfast and pool, mostly in that order. It's difficult to find something... More

It's not a horrible place, but it's far from great. Their breakfast is basically cereal and coffee (we walked across to the Marriott for breakfast all 4 days we were there). The shower had mildew in it and the towels were very old and thin. No pool, no jacuzzi, no bar, no restaurant. Their soda machine didn't even work! We... More
