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

Th is hotel is just a few blocks from the main part of Old Town San Diego. It has underground parking with very low ceilings; so cars only or plan to park on the street. Really nice courtyard. Ask to face the fountain or you will face the street. The interior courtyard is very pleasant and restful. The rooms are... More

Stayed for three days…..our family group had four rooms rented. The hotel is in a great location. Parking, for $15 daily, is secure and convenient. The hotel seems old, but has modern touches. Nice pool and outside sitting area which our group used every evening. The rooms are clean and quiet. The air conditioner worked perfectly. The breakfast area is... More

This Fairfield is right in Old Town, so within walking distance to great restaurants and shops. It's also very close to the airport so just a short shuttle ride. The front desk even comp'd me for taxi fare when the shuttle wasn't running. It was only $15, but it's great customer service. The staff are really friendly, and super helpful.... More
