We chose the Old Town Inn after reading reviews and were glad we did. The value for what you get can't be beat in this town. The room and grounds were clean and the breakfast was more than adequate. The location is also very convenient being a half block from the transit hub and Old Town San Diego. Downtown SD...

I chose this hotel based on the price and the excellent reviews. The service was great and the room was clean and of adequate size. The bath was well laid out with 2 sinks- one inside the bath and one outside the bath. The breakfast was similar to the chain hotels- however the food was of much higher quality- bagels...

Snobs and 5 Star folks will probably not appreciate the wonderful charm of this somewhat historic motel. Just down the road from Old Town and the Trolley. There are some homeless but harmless folks down the road under the overpass. Not to worry, the ambiance of the motel and Old Town overcome the reality we see in many towns these...

Fairly basic accommodation, but everything I needed. Good self service breakfast and a few nice touches like tea, coffee, fruit and cold, lemon water available all day. The front desk staff were most helpful with advice about seeing the sights, booking cabs etc. Perfect location as just a short walk from the Old Town. Didn't feel that safe walking around...

The good: Easy access from SD Trolley Easy walk to Old Town The bad: Thin walls so neighbor's conversations are audible. Pool dominated by a few rowdy kids Terrible WiFi access. I never was able to connect Mediocre breakfast Not cheap but maybe for San Diego it was a good price ($140/nite)

The Inn is in an industrial type location but it is only a 10 minute walk to the trolley and train station. Add another 5 minutes and you are in Old Town. The room was small but well put together. The only drawback was there were not enough electrical outlet and in today's environment we had to keep switching our...

Stayed 1 night with family of 3. Upgraded to 2 Queen bed apartment. Had living room and small kitchen. Very nice. Pretty basic room & amenities, but great great price! ($104 + tax) Breakfast not spectacular, but thrown in with other value is ok.

I am so happy I chose this hotel for our 5 day stay in San Diego. The rooms were clean, well appointed but the location ended up making this the best choice.
