We stayed here for 2 days to visit old town San Diego and Sea World. It was a perfect location, away from the traffic and parking problems of downtown and walk-able to Old Town park and restaurants. Room was comfortable and clean although nothing special. Easy to get to Sea World and other parks in the area. It is surrounded... More

We have stayed at Old Town Inn several times. We try to stay here for ComiCon because the tram is just across the street and very convenient. There is nothing special about the Old Town Inn, but it has always been clean and the service first rate. The pool is nice and they serve a continental breakfast in the mornings.

We stayed at the Old Town Inn due to its proximity to Qualcomm Stadium, as we were headed there for a Chargers game. As we were approaching the address on our navigator, we got a little concerned as the neighborhood is questionable. But the Inn is like a little oasis, the landscaping is immaculate and the buildings all look beautiful.... More

Not luxurious but it doesn't have the $$$ price. Our needs were very well taken care of and it was quite enjoyable...esp. breakfast around the beautiful pool. Very close to transportation which is a very large plus. I would stay there again. :)

We chose Old Town Inn because of the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Our room was comfortable and clean and had a mini-kitchen. We had advised the front desk that our flight arrived in the morning and they arranged an early check-in for us which we appreciated. The location close to a transit terminal was important to...

The hotel itself is a great value compared to how expensive so many places in San Diego are. It's clean, the rooms are well maintained, and the free breakfast is decent enough. It's nice and close to the Old Town Transit Center, but beware the general area has some iffy people loitering around at times. The hotel grounds are very... More
