The staff could not have been more helpful. Rooms (we had 2) could not have been cleaner. The directions to local attractions were helpful. The breakfast- waffles, fruit, cereal, bagels, baked goods were more than adequate to tide on over until lunch. A car is needed to enjoy the area, as there are a lot of attractions, and eateries to... More

We were originally booked at a "chain" hotel figuring we would just be sleeping there and we could live in the cramped quarters for a few days. However, I stumbled across this one on the internet and saw the reviews and it was only like $130 more for the length of our stay (3 nights) to get a family suite.... More

Check in was very good, quick. The staff member was very helpful and informative. Be warned, its probably the norm but if you are paying by cash they do take $100 for incidentals when checking in. When entering the room, it was ok. It was clean and quiet apart from the train. However, when I said it was clean I... More

Only thing we found was the loud cannons going off late in the evening was disturbing., but only for a few min. The hotel itself is very pretty. Wish they had a hot tub. Old town was so close we walked there.

We checked out yesterday morning. We stayed 3 nights in the hotel. We felt it was a perfect location. The front desk staff were very professional and accomodating. They had flyers with directions and phone numbers to anything we could have needed such as grocery stores, and pharmacies. Just a short walk to Old Towne. Very convenient and a short... More

Convenient location near Old Town and very near trolley station for easy travel around the city. Purpose of our trip was a series of college tours - very close to USD (about 2 miles) and about 9-10 miles to UCSD and SDSU. Very nice front desk personnel, very comfortable bed. Comfortable accommodations and reasonably priced comparatively speaking. Plenty of eateries... More

We stayed at the Old Town Inn from July 31 to August 5. We had rented a family suite with a kitchenette. We arrived early in the afternoon and while our room was not ready, the front desk agreed to keep our food in a refrigerator and provided us with a parking space until we could check-in. The breakfast was... More

My family and I stayed here during our California trip week of July 14, 2014. Very nice hotel. Courteous and professional front desk. The location was very good to get to Old Town as well as Coronado and the beaches. The pool area was amazing. The breakfast room was organized and clean. The food was great. I wish we could... More

We recently stayed at Old Town Inn with our two grandchildren, ages 8 and 12. The entire stay was delightful, starting with the friendly staff at check-in and the extremely clean and comfortable room.
