The Old Town Inn is exactly as advertised and worthy of the good reviews that it receives. Its a quaint little motor lodge nestled between San Diego, Old Town and Mission Bay. My room was in one of the older buildings and was average size. Not to big, but it certainly wasn't too small either. It was typical of what... More

Great hotel. Room was very clean, free parking, very reasonably priced, great breakfast. Wouldn't recommend if you are a light sleeper as it's close to the freeway and you can also hear planes and trains. Didn't bother us though. Only complaint was that we asked for a late checkout earlier in the morning and was told they would extend it... More

This place is a hidden gem! A small older hotel, but immaculate..grounds are nice..pool is small but warm. Continental breakfast is good but could use some more protein. Rooms are spacious.One of the best things about Old Town Inn is the staff! Every one I encountered at the front desk was so warm and friendly and helpful. It would be... More

We were in town to go sailing for the day, and didn't need anything fancy just for a quick overnight stay. I had read the reviews here, and thought why not. After a long day and evening on the water, we didn't want to hassle with a problematic check in and disappointing room. We were pleased with the staff and... More

This was the first time my husband and I traveled to San Diego. We stayed in the Jacuzzi suite which was tucked in the back, away from the street. So, it was super quiet. The parking lot is a little congested, but it's free. This was a great location for us to walk to the Old Town Transit Center to... More

The pictures on the Internet sold us on a quaint, cozy inn. In reality it's in a dirty, industrial location with many people sleeping under the bridge next door. Safety is one concern here. Another is the musty smell of smoke in the room. Plus they charged us $15 a day extra for our lap dog. As a seasoned traveler... More

Old Town Inn was just what we needed...waffle bar for our granddaughter, central location, easy access to public transportation, clean rooms, nice little pool, and very pleasant and helpful staff. This will be our new, good value getaway from South OC; can't wait to return!

Pros: friendly and helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms, expanded continental breakfast off the lobby, small but heated and clean pool, across street from transit center, State historic park, and Old Town; DVD library.
