Five stars, not because it's luxurious but because for the money, I doubt whether you could do better. Large, clean, quality fitted room with two queen beds and all the expected things including coffee machine and free wi-fi. Very handy for the old town and associated restaurants and attractions ... quiet ... nice breakfast ... errr ... that's it ...... More

We stayed her one night but wish we could have stayed longer. We purposely picked this hotel because its so close to many things but especially because its walking distance from Old Town. It's within blocks of the freeway but hardly any road noise. The room was nice, clean and very spacious. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Also, had... More

My family loved the location of this hotel. The hotel is located right by the Historic Old Town stores and restaurants - which boasts of its Mexican flavor! The hotel was perfect with their complimentary hot breakfast and relaxing pool area. The laundry facilities was also a bonus since I always try to take home some clean clothes. The hotel... More

We stayed here for a 4 day seminar---well, my love did, I stayed here for two days of golf and one day of horse wagering. The location was perfect. The breakfast choices were great and the staff was attentive. The rooms while somewhat small had everything we needed. Though not right next to the I-5 freeway, it could be heard... More

This hotel is just 10 minutes drive from the airport. We arrived late, and found it difficult to locate our room. Fortunately, we had a microwave in our room to heat soup which we bought from the hotel's shop. The hotel was quiet, and breakfast was plentiful with a choice of fresh fruit, cereals, scrambled egg, toast, yogurts etc. The... More

Awesome stay here for two nights! Staff very friendly. Breakfast is huge and pool was great. I can't say enough about this place. Would stay here again! Plus it is in old town which was a wonderful experience. They also provide laundry supplies complimentary.

This is not your typical standard Fairfield Inn. The facility sits at the end of “Old Town” San Diego, which has a very different and interest feeling compared to the rest of San Diego. The heart of Old Town is only two or three blocks away and the neighborhood is safe enough to walk after dark. The property must have... More

This is An older property that has a fresh coat of paint. The staff seemed nice. The breakfast bar was good. The room was well appointed w a frige and microwave. The bathroom smelled badly, it was like it was backing up. It was an ok stay.

The good: Just one block from Old Town, so you can stay here and be sure of a great choice of restaurants and sights all within 10 minutes walk. Depot for hop-on-hop-off trams is here too. No car needed for turistas - yay! Nice little pool area. Pretty good breakfast with some real food, but all on plastic plates and... More
