The room was clean, quiet and has plenty of space. The hotel is close to restaurants and within walking distance to all the transportation you need to see San Diego. The breakfast was good, but get there early. It was very busy after the first hour.

Location is fabulous. Walking distance to Old Town and just minutes to the airport. Rooms are nice with microwave and frig. The breakfast is great - waffles 2 types, eggs and egg whites, ham or sausage, oatmeal with toppings, cereal, yogurt, bagels. I wish they had 1 more waffle maker as the line can get long. The ladies in the... More

This hotel is well located for walking into Old Town. It is also an easy drive to the USS Midway or various beaches. We had a large family group so we found the large patio spaces to be great gathering locations. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms and public areas seem to be recently refurbished. The ground floor rooms... More

We stayed at Fairfield while attending the Albion soccer tournament. The hotel is located within walking distance of Old Town and all of the restaurants, bars, and shops. The rooms are clean and comfortable with free wifi and breakfast ( eggs, sausage, waffles, bagels, yogurt, etc). They advertise "free parking" but whe we arrived we were told the free parking...

We like to stay in Old Town since it's a nice little walkable part of San Diego and not too far from downtown. Especially easy to get downtown with the trolley, or a quick drive. We love the Old Town Mexican Cafe and the bar at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, both are must do's when we visit Old Town. The Farifield... More

We decided to stay here at the last minute on a return trip home from Mexico. The hotel is pretty centrally located, only 10 minutes' drive from Seaport Village, and not too far from the Gas Lamp. The hotel is clean. There is a nice breakfast bar, (which on the day we stayed served eggs, omelettes, ham, waffles, cereal, coffee,... More

This Marriott Hotel is located in Old Town near good restaurants and SeaWorld. The Breakfasts are good and the rooms are clean. The pool is shallow but good enough for laps and it feels really good after walking all day. They do need to put in room safes, and monitor more closely their towel allocations at the pool. We saw...

Comfortable, clean and great staff. Very close to Old Town. Beds very comfy and good air conditioning. Would recommend highly although a bar would be great. Breakfast included was pretty good too. Parking easily on the street.

This hotel is very nice. We had a room with a balcony that over looked the courtyard. Our room was very comfortable. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was good, waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, hot and cold cereal, muffins, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice and milk. This hotel is a very short, 3-5 minute, walk to Old Town. It is also very...
