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.

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
