Average hotel - just a couple of blocks from Old San Diego if you want to spent time there. Easy to find right off of I-5. Just take the Old San Diego exit and it is up the road on your left. We found street parking so didn't have to pay the garage fee. Be aware that some rooms on... More

I stayed here in December for one night. The hotel is located in Old Town San Diego, close to the airport. the hotel itself is beautiful, done in what I think of as typical California style. The area where it's located feels a bit remote. There were no restaurants or shops nearby that I could see. You would have to... More

Dear MichTrving, I am so glad you enjoyed the unique style of the hotel. It fits in perfect with Old Town, San Diego. I would like to point out that just 2 blocks from the hotel is the "heart" of Old Town which has over 30 different restaurants and many other shops. Please come back and see us again and... More

I really enjoy staying in San Diego, particularly downtown. However my budget doesn't always align with the downtown rates. That was the case over New Year's so I went with the Old Town Fairfield. I've stayed there before and found that it's a great spot, and it was less than half the cost of downtown. (Since the Fairfield is a... More

This interior corridor hotel is nestled in the heart of the Old Town community. The hotel had a five star breakfast and amenities were very modern.The staff went above and beyond to accommodate the needs of their guests.

Usually when staying in Old Town, we stay at the Courtyard Marriot, but this time we gave the Fairfield Inn and Suites a try. For some reason I though it would be similar to a Residence Inn, but in fact was a bit smaller with no kitchen facilities (but did have a small fridge and micro). The room was nice,... More

Visited this hotel for 10 days and should have changed hotels. The people that work there are wonderful. The hotel is in sad shape. First room, the first night the AC made such a noise that I thought that it was a fire alarm. That was a Saturday and when I complained they told me that they would fix it... More

The location to the Old Town attractions seemed like the best benefit for this hotel, but after a few days I began to notice how modern and well maintained the room was. There is plenty of space, with the usual coffee maker, microwave and fridge. There was no safe though, which was surprising for a room with better-than-usual fittings. The... More
