I was staying in San Diego for both business and leisure, and the old town inn was a perfect base. The trolley stop was just across the road and it dropped me off directly outside the convention centre. I felt very safe and it was very easy. The hotel rooms were large and comfortable and the breakfasts were ideal, the... More

We were fortunate to find a room at the last minute. Laura, at the front desk was very nice and let us inspect the room before deciding. The room was very clean and comfortable. Entire staff was friendly and helpful. Coffee and tea available at all times in the comfortable lobby. Breakfast was great with hardboiled eggs, waffles, hot and... More

My husband and I spent three nights here and were happy with our stay. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast room was full every morning. The rooms were very clean and it was good to have a laundry to do some washing. We were prepared for the location and there always seemed to be people around and we... More

We recently spent two nights at the Old Town Inn while visiting colleges in the SD area. It fit our needs perfectly. As previous posts mentioned, the setting leaves a lot to be desired as it is basically in an industrial/working neighborhood. But the Inn is set back from the street and is pretty quiet. Staff was great. The room... More

The Old Town Inn is a very good place to stay. The prices are reasonable, the rooms are clean with old style charm. The location is very central to most attractions by the ocean. We could even see the fireworks from Sea World on Friday night. They have a good free breakfast with fruit, cereal, waffles, juice, milk,bagels, etc. The... More

I have to admit...going to a hotel that is sight unseen is a little scary. I rely on Trip Advisor a lot to make sure where I'm going is decent...this little gem surprised me. Starting with our check-in the whole experience was positive. Everyone in the front office is very nice and helpful...not only with the guests, but with each... More

Overall I would recommend this hotel. The staff is excellent and very helpful. As others stated the location is ideal to access the trolley, busses and old town San Diego. We stayed there for four nights on spring break vacation. The lure of this hotel is the location and the fact that it costs about a hundred dollars less than... More

After reading the reviews for this hotel on Trip Advisor, my sister chose it for the price and amenities. She told me she was a little skeptical because, in the satellite photos, the hotel appeared to be in an industrial district but was a short walk to Old Town San Diego and the price was the best in the Old...

We stayed here because we had read good reviews in a budget hotel guide and were very pleased we made the choice. We were able to catch the Amtrak train straight down to San Diego after arriving at LAX and taking the Flyaway bus to Union Station. The taxi to the hotel was around $20. Our room was very comfortable... More

Great Location. Great Price. Nice, clean rooms and well maintained exterior and gardens! Front Desk staff are friendly and helpful. It's nice to be able to walk back from Old Town after maybe too many margaritas. I will definitely stay hear again.
