Overall our trip was awesome because we were able to see our new Marine graduate from MCRD. This hotel is very close to both MCRD and Old Town San Diego. This hotel is very old and our room definitely showed that. I think there are some nicer rooms based on pictures we have seen but we were not so lucky....

Our family of three generations stayed at the Western Inn and found it most ideally located for a visit to Old Town San Diego. The rooms were clean and comfortable. It was great to park the van and walk. Our hotelier was most helpful and charming. Thanks for the voucher for the Coyote Cafe.

The room was great and clean. Quiet place close to Old Town, short drive to the Hatboro and other points of interest in San Diego. Will definitely stay there again, friendly front desk clerk. Great Value for the price.

We stayed for 4 nights. The hotel was very clean, quiet, and in a safe neighborhood. We were very close to Old San Diego with lots of shops and restaurants and things to see. The manager went out of his way to help us in any way he could. Would definitely stay there again.

Dear Guest We were help to hear that our staff were friendly being a smaller hotel we can spend more time with each guest where you are not a number but a guest. We are sorry about the parking we know the parking is small but being in Old Town parking is hard. We hope to see you again.

This was a last minute booking it was the cheapest hotel with availability in Old Town. No pool, rooms in need of decoration, noisy air con and very basic breakfast. The staff are excellent with their warm welcome and helpfulness and as it's so close to the centre of Old Town it's worth not having a few luxuries. Parking is...
