The ratings at tripadvisor had already been very good - and the hotel definitely did not disappoint us. Very helpful staff, clean rooms and pool, an unexpectedly complete complimentary breakfast, coffee/tea/cold water around the clock and even a wide selection of videos to rent for free. Plus a great location close to the Old Town and within driving distance to...

We stayed at Old Town Inn based on it's popularity on Trip Advisor as well as recommendations on the forum. We were glad we did. It is not a fancy hotel, let me get that out the way first off. If you want a 5 star hotel, spend $200 or $300 and stay somewhere else. If you want a centrally...

From the moment I phoned the Old Town Inn, and spoke with Anna, one of the inn's friendly desk clerks, I was bowled over with their desire to answer my myriad of questions and fulfill our family's every need. We would be spending five nights in San Diego and wanted to have a home base that was affordable, offered a...

Old Town Inn is very good at what they do. They are not a 5 star hotel, they don't have a hotel store or gift shop, there's no gym, and I wish there were a hot tub, but for a reasonably priced place to stay, they are excellent. The grounds and rooms are very clean and well maintained. Bedding smelled...

Just checked into this lovely motel, it is small and close to a lot of things to do. The staff was especially friendly and helpful when we checked in. We are only here for one night and for the price it was worth it, we would stay again.

Front desktop very kind and helpful, room clean and comfortable but a little noisy because of the high traffic road nearby. Swimming pool, breakfast. You can borrow DVDs at the front desk. A good stop in San Diego with a very affordable price

We found this hotel through TripAdvisor and it was lovely. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They had directions already printed out for Sea World, the Zoo, a grocery store, the Harbor and many other places. They had restaurant recommendations. Breakfast was simple, but good.
