I highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting San Diego. Instead of paying much higher room rates near or in downtown San Diego, or in the Mission Bay area, consider staying here. Nearby (just a few blocks walking distance) is the Old Town train station. From there, you can take the trolley to downtown. The train station also services Amtrak,... More

We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of August 2016. The hotel is located within walking distance from the Old City of San Diego and within 10 minutes' drive to the SeaWorld. We loved the hotel's design with the lovely fountains. The room (2 queen beds) was nice and comfortable, good breakfast, friendly staff. We used the laundry room and... More

My wife, our eleven year-old granddaughter, and I had a great stay from August 11th-16th. Our primary reason for the trip was for our granddaughter to attend the a Basketball Camp at Alliant University, which was conveniently located approximately 20 miles from our hotel. For being our first visit to San Diego, our overall stay was very satisfying and enjoyable... More

We had a small family reunion this past weekend in San Diego and all stayed at the Fairfield in Old Town. It was a nice property in a great location. We were within walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops. We were able to go to a baseball game via the Trolley (train) to downtown. We were also minutes away... More

A friends' base for two days before moving on in our journey, this proved to be a more than adequacy stay in San Diego. Conveniently close to the airport and walking distance from Old Town attractions and restaurants. The structure made up of different separate buildings - sometimes criticized in prior reviews- looked actually very good to me, in local... More

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to base, the airport, and within walking distance to restaurants. We had considered billetting on base for the experience, but the anxiety about rooming without AC in August convinced us to seek the comfort of a hotel. The staff at Fairfield Inn were wonderful. Everyone was concerned about our satisfaction. I had... More

I booked this hotel in May using Marriot's reservation website for our family vacation in August. We arrived at this hotel after 10pm to be told our reservation was cancelled by hotel staff and they had no other available rooms. I received no communication regarding the cancelled reservation from hotel staff. The front desk staff called sister hotels and after... More

My family spent a week at this hotel on a work/vacation trip. We had stayed here one other time. Both times were great. The rooms were clean and quiet and my kids loved the hotel pool/hot tub. The breakfast was also good. The staff was helpful. I was able to park on the street without problem so I didn't have... More

I was at this hotel for longer this time so I thought I would do another review. This time I came in early with the family. They worked with me to get a room that would fit us all. The pool and hot tub were the right size for the kids and very clean. We had a good breakfast as... More
