I stayed at the Old Town Inn twice in June 2012. The first time I stayed in a large room, the second in a smaller room near the pool. Both times the stay was quite pleasant. The hotel provides clean and comfortable accommodations, and a free breakfast bar which offers a fresh selection of fruit, pastries, self-created waffle, hard-boiled eggs,...

I can't say enough good things about our stay at the Old Town Inn. I'll be honest at first when you arrive off the Pacific Highway you are thinking, "I am staying here?" The hotel is next to some warehouses and such but once on the property it's great. The front desk staff were super helpful and friendly and we...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review.

Look no further for a lovely place to spend 1 or more nights in San Diego. Rates are "TOPS" and cannot be beat for the proximity to "Old Town". Now, 3rd stay. Park your vehicle at no extra charge and an easy walk (2 blocks) to Old Town or Trolley to downtown San Diego. Senior rate is $1.25 each way....

I recently took a cross-country, 14 day trip from Arkansas to San Diego with my family of five and this was the best hotel I booked on the entire trip. It is a truly a gem in downtown San Diego. Everything about it was wonderful: very reasonably priced, friendly service, clean rooms and beautiful grounds with the flowers. The outdoor...

I was looking for a lower cost hotel walking distance to a trolley stop and found the Old Town Inn via a google search.

Dear Valued Guest, We’re glad to hear that although you found your room to be on the small side, that you still enjoyed your stay at the Old Town Inn.

We want to emphasize the very good service. The front desk was there for any questions for us. The included breakfast was ok. From what we saw San Diego hotels seems expensive generally, so the price level here is ok too.
