I spent 3 nights at this hotel this past week and stayed in one of the bungalow rooms just off the pool. It really felt like I was staying at a good friend's guest house. The bungalow room (#128) faced the road and I was worried about possible noise so Ooki at the front desk upgraded me to one of... More

This was a nice, clean hotel and was a nice place to stay just outside of Old Town San Diego. When you check in, ask about good places to eat and they will give you a voucher for a free appetizer to Cafe Coyote. You definitely want to go eat at Cafe Coyote! The hotel is close to Sea World... More

This hotel seemed great and cute at first but parking is horrible. You struggle getting out of your car bc you don't want to hit the car next to you and you if stay out late there won't be any parking when you get back. The only other place to park is on a little, dark, iffy street. I will... More

We were in San Diego to attend a wedding. When our family found out about all the amenities that were included with our stay compared to the price others paid, our family that didn't book with us were jealous! The hotel was centrally located to everything. Old Town (just down the street), Downtown, Balboa Park, and trendy neighborhoods such as... More

The Old Town Inn is outside of the trendy downtown hotels but makes up for it price and proximity to transit and Old Town San Diego. It is equivalent to two blocks to the transit center for trolleys, trains and buses. Add another block to Old Town State Historical Park. It is in an non-glamorous industrial area but the facility...

This is our second stay at the Old Town Inn in San Diego. We love this place; across from Old Town, the airport, and main attractions. The staff is eager to please and will answer any questions you have for the area. The breakfast was well maintained by the staff and kept very clean. I enjoyed the hot oatmeal and... More

Since our first stay at the Old Town Inn in 2011, we have spent each one of our annual (multiple nights) stays in San Diego at this inn. This time we booked a king room with fridge & microwave. It was spacious, comfortable & clean. All staff members were very friendly and helpful. The rates have not been increased over... More

We spent three nights here, and enjoyed the friendly, helpful staff, the clean, well kept room, the lovely landscaping, and breakfast included each morning. Upon arrival, I did have some concern about road noise, but it was surprisingly quiet at night, despite the proximity to several highways. The bed was comfortable, and our unit had a view of the pool.... More

Really nice hotel, nice rooms, clean, friendly staff and real good breakfast. Very close to SeaWorld as well, just a five minutes drive. Rooms were huge, beds were comfy and clean. Property is well maintained as well. Not sure why this hotel is rated a two star, I would rate is as a 4 star. Parking was included in the... More
