I would like to give the hotel a 5, but I had trouble with the wifi in the first room I was given. I asked to be changed to another room, and the wifi worked fine. The hotel is clean and although there is a parking fee, it is optional and I was able to find on-street parking without much... More

First, its in a great location, directly off of I-5, minutes walk from Old Town restaurants, and easy drives to the beaches, Coronado Island, Downtown San Diego and best off all,you can see the...

Good value for a three day business trip. Free shuttle 5 mins to airport and free breakfast (oatmeal, toast, fruit, boiled eggs, yogurt, and cereal). Inner courtyard and fountain area are perfect for breakfast. Room decor was a bit odd with color combos, but spotless and extremely comfortable bed. Rooms on street side are a bit noisy

Stayed here over 4th of July weekend and loved every moment! Room was on 2nd floor with a balcony overlooking the courtyard and swimming pool. Slept with the balcony doors open every night - it was perfect! Rooms were clean, spacious, and modern. Above expectations for a Fairfield Inn. Only thing that was average was the breakfast. Will stay here... More

We arrived late from Honolulu into San Diego, the hotel is not too far from the airport. It took about 20 minutes from Rental Car office to the hotel ground, which is not too bad. We parked the car on the street, parking spots were plenty on week night. The room was decent size and clean, the breakfast the next... More

Our recent stay was a wonderful getaway. The Fairfield was easy to find off the freeway and within walking distance to Old Town and the trolley tour ride pick up. It was clean and well kept up. The breakfast was an added bonus with hot food as well. The courtyard with the fountains set it apart from other hotels giving... More

Very nice property, when we first arrived I was a little wary because the entrance is right off the street, but once you get into the property it's very pleasant. The interior decor is very nice. The location is good, close to the freeway, short drive to downtown and Old Town is a few blocks away. There is was no... More

Our recent stay was very nice. The room in the back building, was very clean and nicely decorated. We arrived late and were not only welcomed cordially, but our parking fee was waived as grandson was graduating from MCRD. That was extremely generous. I asked for and received a quiet room; but next time will remember to try for windows... More
