“LOVELY HOTEL AT A GREAT PRICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Stayed for two nights and easy to find of the I5.Rooms were a good size with a nice bathroom,while the pool area was lovely and relaxing. Good parking facilities which made getting the luggage in & out of the room no problem. Breakfast is acceptable but the room is a little small -a problem encountered at all hotels on our trip The Old Town is a short walk away and certainly worth a visit, while SeaWorld is only a short drive away. Wifi worked well. But the best memory of the hotel is the fantastic and helpful service of the employees -in particular Laura and Anna - thanks a lot. A lovely hotel at a great price.

Dear Valued Guest,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to give us your personal feedback of our hotel. We greatly appreciate our guest’s point of view and always love to find out how our hotel is perceived. Our company culture is to provide quality, affordability, cleanliness, and great customer service to our guests.

It is nice to hear that you enjoyed our amenities. For example, the pool area; I would have to agree, it is a great place to relax, and the surrounding atmosphere is lush with greenery. Next time you visit, be sure to check out the grill by the pool, it’s a perfect barbecue spot and lots of fun.

We appreciate that you mentioned our central location. Yes, we are very close to most of San Diego’s great attractions. We are a short 5 minute drive to Sea World, and a short walk to Old Town. We are also walking distance to the Old Town Transit Station, where guests can catch the trolley, train, or any other form of public transportation. We love our location, although it is slightly industrial, because our guests can move around San Diego quickly and conveniently.

Thank you for complimenting the service here at Old Town Inn. It is an honor to hear that your best memory from your stay is of the staff’s dedication and willingness to help out whenever possible. On behalf of the Old Town Inn staff, we are more than happy to assist you, and we strive to assure that all guests feel welcome and have an enjoyable time with us. One of our top priorities is providing outstanding customer service and genuine hospitality. Thank you so much for choosing to stay at the Old Town Inn, and for your wonderful review. It was our pleasure to have you and your family as our guests. Thank you!

Yours in Hospitality,
Laura | Front Desk Agent

I LOVED this motel. We stayed at three different places these past two weeks and this was my favorite and the least expensive. One place we stayed was four times as much, not nearly as clean and the beds weren't as comfortable! I cannot recommend this motel enough. The rooms were spacious, and spotless, the pool area is quaint and pretty and the breakfast was great (and included!). We will for sure be back to this hidden gem!!!

We stayed at the Old Town Inn San Diego in the older section of the hotel. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is clean and fresh. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The rooms are small, but sufficient. The only complaint I would have is that the bath towels are very small. The morning breakfast was good with waffles, boiled eggs, cereals, oatmeal, sweet rolls, bagels, fruit and orange juice. This is definitely a great place to stay, especially on a budget. Can't go wrong here!

Even though it's in somewhat of an industrial area, getting around was not a problem. You can hop on and off the freeway easily. Rooms are clean and spacious, staff is very hospitable. Pool and hotel grounds are well maintained. Wifi was good. Breakfast was standard but sufficient. Old Town is near by. Thursday evening at Old Town was very lively. Music, people everywhere, all the restaurants and shops are open. We had a lovely stay. Thank you and keep up the good work.

My husband and I stayed for three nights we came to celebrated my birthday. I must say every review I read was true. The room we stayed in was room 204 and it was a spacious room. The bed was so comfortable we both slept like babies. It was very close to all the attractions. We visited at Old Town, the zoo and the Harbor and the aquarium. Weather was great! I will be staying here in the future!
