The staff are very accommodating and cordial. The rooms, while not chrome-and-steel modern and new, are well maintained and a solid value for the money and the prime location adjacent to San Diego's Old Town and a short walk to public transportation hubs. Side note: public transportation is efficient and abundant. I recommend multi-day passes for a stay of several... More

This is an older hotel, but in decent shape. The room was very quiet, we got a good night's sleep. There is a fridge and microwave in the room, which was convenient. We brought back leftovers from the restaurant, so these came in useful. The first night, the hotel put us in a room next to the elevator. We could... More

I put a lot of faith in customer reviews and read numerous reviews on this hotel and many others. My husband and I stayed in San Diego for 4 days to visit our don who lived near Ocean Beach. I decided upon the Old Town Western Inn because it appeared to me that it was an establishment where the manager... More

I liked this hotel very much. It was so cozy and the service was very attentive and personal. My family arrived late from a flight from Hawaii and we were looking for an affordable place to stay that was close to all major attractions. This hotel did it for us. I like the fact that even though it is located... More

Great location in Old Town area, ideal for public transport links, park up & buy a multi day pass to every where in the area. It's a no frills hotel, so if you want creature comforts go else where & pay alot more, it's clean & the staff are very helpfull, I've stayed on three separate occaissons for several days... More

Comfortable room. Attentive hosts. Sanjay (the owner) keeps these facilities well maintained. My wife and I have been coming here for years and enjoy it every time. Once we park the car in their indoor parking area it stays there until we finish our stay. The hotel is within walking distance to all the sites and restaurants of Old Town.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Western Inn & Suites in Old Town for 6 nights in March 2012 on our vacation to San Diego. It was more than I expected -- a quiet, clean, affordable room with courteous staff day and night, free wireless (lots of hotels are now charging). The breakfast was cold cereal and coffee, but...

I stayed at this motel in Dec of 2011. The motel was very clean and quiet which was exactly what we needed since we would be tired from going to the nearby attractions. Also it was close to Seaworld and SD Zoo... We saw that the convention center was close by and walking distance to Old Town San Diego which... More

Thankfully we just stayed one night in this hotel. We had 2 rooms, both smelled musty. Mattresses were awful, falling apart. The door to the bathroom was filthy, both sides, the taps, sink and backsplash. The hairdryer had so much dust on the vent I couldn't use it. Very disappointing stay.
