“Excellent Stay At Western Inn & Suites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2009

I strongly recommend Western Inn & Suites to everyone. I stayed there for one week and they have wonderful Customer Service, Rooms, cleanliness. I stayed at other hotel near that before and Western Inn is 100% better than that. My clients were really really happy who stayed with me as well. ONE OF THE BETTER HOTELS I STAYED IN. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!

This is a very nice little hotel near old town state park. The staff is great and have no problem bringing you extra pillows even late at night. It is in walking distance to the park and many nice restrants, clubs, and shops. Rooms are very clean and roomy. Perfect for a weekend get away with your partner!

We stayed at the Western Inn Old Town during mid summer and we found the hotel conveniently located within walking distance to the famous Old Town center and also the trolley station which was convenient as well. Great Mexican restaurants were also nearby. The rooms will satisfy your basic needs and are comfortable. There are danish, juice and fresh coffee in the morning which is nice. The staff were pleasant and accommodating.

Theplace needs to be fumigated. We just got there and my girls were already screaming because they saw a cockroach on the bed. There wasn't just one, I saw four. The bathroom too smelled bad, it smelled like somebody urinated on the floor. The staff are ok, and the place is just a few minutes away from Seaworld but I would rather stay at a hotel a little farther as long as it's clean and there are no cockroaches. I will not recommend this place, it was a bad experience.

This hotel is perfect for those on a budget needing to stay in Old Town. I paid half the price of the hotel next door and was within walking distance of the hotel where my conference was being held. As a female traveling alone, I felt very safe walking around the neighborhood at night.
Two complaints: The room was fine although it still smelled like smoke and it was a nonsmoking room; when I told the cashier (because I had to sign a waiver saying I'd pay $150 if I smoked in the room) she looked at me annoyingly and shrugged.

Overall, I had a pleasant experience.

The Western Inn is one of a cluster of hotels/motels near the Old Town section of San Diego. The area is 10 minutes to the airport by car and walking distance to restaurants and charming sights near where San Diego began. If you have never wandered around Old Town, it is worth an afternoon.

The room was comfortable and clean although the hallway was exterior. There was a full range of channels on the television and a coffee maker, fridge, and small microwave in the room. We had no real complaints.

There is a separate charge for indoor parking ($6) and it does not have in-room internet, although we understand there is a computer and net connection in the lobby. There is a very limited continental breakfast offered to eat in the room (two cold cereals, store muffins, juice, coffee, some Danish).

We have stayed in the nearby Holiday Inn and found this a step down in quality, but cheaper. We would say here again, but there is little to do on site except sleep.

All in all, this is an acceptable alternative for a short stay within driving distance of the downtown.
