We enjoyed the hotel and the local area. The rate was a great value for the location and the staff and service were great also. The parking is underneath at $20 per day but that is normal and fair for the area. Lots of history and great restaurants within walking distance.

I would just like to say that we had excellent customer service from Kevin and Adrianna when we checked in for our room on February 28. They were very accommodating. When we went to our first room it was on the bottom floor and we had no window,so we went back to see if something else could possibly open up...

This is a convenient location if visiting Old Town...just a couple minutes to Old Town restaurants and shops. The staff were always friendly and the complimentary breakfast was the standard Fairfield fare. The location was also a short UBER ride to the pier, Balboa Park, or La Jolla. While we were told our room was their best room held specially...

While I so wanted to give this hotel a perfect rating and gave them chance after chance to remedy an unfortunate situation, they couldn't have cared less.

About a 10 minute drive from the airport (but you cannot hear the planes) and a 15 minute drive to downtown San Diego. If you can find on street parking it is free. Otherwise the hotel has a underground garage (be-careful of your vehicle height) for $20 per night. You can walk out the 'back' door of the hotel and...

We stayed one night before an early flight. Our room was very nice and clean, plus clean smelling - no cover up of smoke. Free parking and an airport shuttle. Staff, including shuttle drivers were welcoming and friendly. A nice courtyard for a sunny day. Unfortunately we arrived at dusk.

Location is a few blocks to Old Town. We didn't have a car, and used Lyft to get around. Many nearby restaurants. Hotel employees are friendly and helpful. Room was clean, worth the money. Would stay there again.
