Having experienced a week at Western Inn Old Town, I would say that I have found my perfect place to stay on my future visits to San Diego. The staff are welcoming and cheerful. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Good size rooms and very clean. Easy access off the freeway but yet the rooms are very quiet. It took me about 10-12 minutes to walk to the trolley/bus station where I was able to commute to several key places of interest. I rented a car for my last 2 nights, which I recommend if you are planning to explore the city further and are short of time. The hotel provides secured parking for a small nominal fee. Great shops and restaurants very nearby to enjoy. Highly recommend!

Extremely filthy and falling apartment. I wouldn't stay there again if they paid me. Probably the worst hotel I've ever stayed in the United States. Extremely poor and amateur repairs, hairs in the bathroom, paper thin blanket, loose times in the hallway, etc etc.

ShanghaiMac, Thank you for sharing your experience, and we are very sorry for the inconveniences that you encountered during your stay. Your very detailed negative review of our facilities and cleanliness is rough to hear because our goal and our efforts are directed to bring the opposite results from what you describe. The description of your stay is highly unusual and does not represent the level of high standards we all aim to achieve. We do hope you allow us another opportunity on a future stay to show you, how we used your overall comments to improve.

Pics online look great. If location is your ONLY CONCERN, great. The staff here is amazing, but the owners should be ashamed of themselves. This place is a dive. It is falling apart. Bathroom needs gutted entirely. Entire space needs new g]drywall repair and paint, Paint is peeling. In general - Very bad condition. Beds not comfortable. Sad place.

Dear Guest We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We try to go out of our way to make every guest happy, If you informed us while your stay we could have moved you, as far as our bed it is only 2 years old but it could have not met your need as far as hardness or softness.

This location was perfect for my recent stay in San Diego. It is right on I-5 highway, 8 highway which takes you anywhere in San Diego. Close to the beaches, downtown, Mission Valley, and all the major things in the area. Airport is 5 minutes away by car and lets not forget that it is walking distance from old town strip where you can dine at fabulous places. I was able to walk to Happy hour! In addition, the staff went above and beyond when I needed something. They felt like family. Clean rooms and just necessary to make my stay enjoyable.
