Great location but the $15 parking charge seems steep and the parking spaces are all designed for small cars. Don't you know that most of us drive SUV;s? It is a waste of time to try to fill out 200 characters.

The room overlooked the pool.There was a very small balcony...not functional unless one was very very small. Pool was on the smallish size..cramped seating if mor the 20 people. The hotel was large, smart looking and clean. The rating would have 4 if Id not experienced breakfast. The breakfast setup was illogical for the numbers eating. The experience is traumatic... More

Dear izzythebandit, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I am glad you enjoyed the size and décor of the hotel! I do apologize that the breakfast was busy at the time you were eating, we are a very busy hotel during the summer with a lot of families that come down to enjoy our breakfast. Next time I would recommend... More

The location to old town for restaurants and sites to see is very good. It's an older property with some rough cosmetic spots in the hallways and worn lobby furniture. The rooms was clean and the bed comfy. There are thin walls and adjoining rooms are more noisy. The staff was friendly and helpful. When something did malfunction in the... More

In town for a family wedding. Staff were very accommodating by placing two adjoining rooms for us. Room location was perfect for us with little kids. We were not able to enjoy the pool this trip due to commitments outside the hotel area, maybe next time. Nice to have amenities just a walk or short drive away.

We enjoyed four nights in Old Town San Diego at the Fairfield Inn and Suites. The hotel was well kept with exterior entrance to most of the rooms. We paid extra for the interior courtyard view and were pleased that we did. It was much quieter than the street side. The breakfast area was expansive and the pool and hot... More

Overall the hotel was nice but the location was better. The hotel is a bit dated with peeling paint in the bathroom and beds need to be updated. The staff is first rate and really try to make your stay pleasant. The location is awesome. You can see the fireworks at night from Sea World and it is walking distance... More

Dear DFinDP, Thank you for providing us your comments about your stay at the Fairfield Inn Old Town! Our location is one of the best in Old Town and during the summer you are lucky enough to be able to see the fireworks from Sea World as you mentioned. We look forward to staying with us again.

The location was great the room was excellent. The only draw back and it was minor was the toilet wouldn't fluch without help. I would have to fill the ice bucket with water to help it flush. Being in old town I was able to walk around.

Sophisticated place. Well kept, clean, orderly, comfy room and comfy beds with good pillows and supportive mattress. Friendly staff. Overpriced-$369 for one night. Poor lighting…fluorescent lights. Close to fast food and gas. Easy on and off for I-5. Garage parking is additional for $15 unless street parking is available. Seems like a safe area. We parked on the street very... More

We stayed 5 days at the Fairfield and were very pleased with the staff and location. The location is one block from Old Town San Diego which we loved. All the great shopping and restaurants were within walking distance and area attractions were within 10 mins. We will definitely stay at this hotel in the future.
