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

This hotel is clean and nice, the staff is friendly and it is very well located, so for the price I paid it was more than fine. However, the breakfast included is limited and you'll have to go back to your bedroom to have it because there's no space in the lobby. The bedrooms are quite dark as well.

Western Inn is a good value for the money. It is in a great location near historic Old Town and the surrounding restaurants and the Trolley line. The staff were friendly. The rooms were basic, but clean. The beds were comfortable.

Manager was polite. room was clean. It was comfortable. Easy place to walk to restaurants. Bathroom was clean and shower. Breakfast was pretty simple only sweet bread and coffee. Good place to stay to sleep and relax. They have so many Mexican restaurants a little hard to find American food. second day we just order pizza.
