Spacious rooms, comfortable bed/bath/working space. Little balcony but having it allowed open doors for beautiful SD fresh air. Breakfast isn't fancy but there are enough options to get your fill under any diet. Great location with easy freeway access yet not able to hear/see it. Great value.

We had room 251 at the far end of the property over the garage. Most of the time the street is quite quiet. However on Tuesday and Wednesday morning at ten minutes to five in the morning the Marriott supply truck pulled up at the entrance to the hotel. We heard every word the truck driver said to the Fairfield... More

Nice place to stay not to far from the freeway so you have easy access to San Diego or up the coast! You are far enough from the freeway that there is no noise or feel that you are by it. Pretty quite place to stay. Only issue I had was that they did not have ESPN2. Had to stream... More

We stayed here for 6 days. This is a little older not typical Fairfield Inn. It is well maintained and we would stay there again. The hot breakfast could used a little more variety. It like many hotels has two classes of Internet, one free and another $7 per day. The free service works but many in our group found... More

It was a busy weekend with football fans, so we didn't get the greatest room on the first night. But after that, the staff moved us to an excellent room, and took care of all that we requested. There was no hook on the back of the bathroom door, so, they came and installed one. The outside gate lock broke,... More

See below. Taller toilets should be in the handicapped rooms. Bed was great, towels were good. Staff was very nice, the guest room staff was very professional and efficient. The grounds were very lovely, and an easy walk to Old Town district and their delicious food. Distance to Trolly stop was very handy.

Very nice and clean hotel. I would recommend that they change out the towel holders in the showers...they are covered with rust. Friendly staff. We just stayed here one night for an overnight to go back to the airport. The free breakfast in the morning was plentiful. I did not like that the airport shuttle didn't work pass 9pm as... More

The location was perfect in Old Town San Diego only 4 miles from the Hyatt Islandia where the conference was held. I left my wife to attend the conference and she could explore the shops and stores in Old Town. Jack and Giulio's Italian restaurant is a neighborhood gem and I recommend eating there.

Nice staff, good and large rooms. Breakfast was ok. Not too much choice, but ok for an USA trip :) For 3 or 4 people, the room was large enough and cheap too. The location is close to the railway station

We enjoyed our stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Old Town San Diego. We were within walking distance of our hotel to great spots for eating, and enjoying the local atmosphere. Our stay for two day
