Th is hotel is just a few blocks from the main part of Old Town San Diego. It has underground parking with very low ceilings; so cars only or plan to park on the street. Really nice courtyard. Ask to face the fountain or you will face the street. The interior courtyard is very pleasant and restful. The rooms are... More

Stayed for three days…..our family group had four rooms rented. The hotel is in a great location. Parking, for $15 daily, is secure and convenient. The hotel seems old, but has modern touches. Nice pool and outside sitting area which our group used every evening. The rooms are clean and quiet. The air conditioner worked perfectly. The breakfast area is... More

This Fairfield is right in Old Town, so within walking distance to great restaurants and shops. It's also very close to the airport so just a short shuttle ride. The front desk even comp'd me for taxi fare when the shuttle wasn't running. It was only $15, but it's great customer service. The staff are really friendly, and super helpful.... More

Great location. A beautiful courtyard and the always perfect San Diego weather made this a lovely place to stay. Very convenient to Old Town, near the highway and about 10 blocks from the light rail system. We stayed here while on a trip to see the San Diego Padres stadium. The rail system was very convenient to downtown and the... More

The Fairfield Inn is in a great location and the emlpoyees are always so friendly. The front desk is courteous and ready to help when needed. I always stay at the Old Town Fairfield Inn when in San Diego

Great location but the $15 parking charge seems steep and the parking spaces are all designed for small cars. Don't you know that most of us drive SUV;s? It is a waste of time to try to fill out 200 characters.

The room overlooked the pool.There was a very small balcony...not functional unless one was very very small. Pool was on the smallish size..cramped seating if mor the 20 people. The hotel was large, smart looking and clean. The rating would have 4 if Id not experienced breakfast. The breakfast setup was illogical for the numbers eating. The experience is traumatic... More

The location to old town for restaurants and sites to see is very good. It's an older property with some rough cosmetic spots in the hallways and worn lobby furniture. The rooms was clean and the bed comfy. There are thin walls and adjoining rooms are more noisy. The staff was friendly and helpful. When something did malfunction in the... More
