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

Located just a few blocks from Old Town with tons of great restaurants to chose from. Underground parking that gives you confidence that your car is secure. Staff was very helpful and I'd stay there again. I walked to the old Presidio church on the hill north of old town. There is a historic church at the top with great... More

They let us check in 3 hours early and made our check in process painless. Lola at the front desk was perfect, courteous, professional and very helpful. Room was exactly as advertised and was very clean with all required amenities. Microwave, Mini Fridge, large flat screen, ample storage and very comfortable king size bed. Good place for those wanting to... More

This is not you typical Fairfield Inn at first glance. Inside the foyer is bright and airey and it has an awesome courtyard. Rooms are clean and spacious as well. A great value with a great location as well

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
