Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stumbled upon this hotel because we needed a place to stay for a wedding in San Diego. Sooooooo glad we did! It was lovely...quaint, quiet, and clean! The staff was super friendly! The breakfast was great! Will definitely look to stay here when we come back SD. (on a side note...LOVED that there were little recycling cans next to trash cans in the room...Way to be green!)

First time staying here with the family and honestly the staff is very friendly and professional. While we checked in Josh was welcoming and helpful. We wanted to stay an extra day and Sydney and Daniel went above and beyond and made it happen. Rooms are nice and the kids loved the swimming pool. I highly recommend this place it’s near by old town San Diego and minutes away from sea world. Thank you to the staff for making our vacation fun!

Dear B6660HLjosem: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience about your stay with us. We are delighted to know that our amazing staff was able to make you and your family stay with us an enjoyable experience. We provide quality hospitality that I believe goes above and beyond our two-star rating, and we appreciate you recognizing them. YES, our pool area is the perfect get away spot with chairs to lounge on, tables to sit and chat with friends and our pool is heated 80 degrees. It is a fun and relaxing place our guest love, the tropical flowers that alien the fence and our gardener does an amazing job keeping our grass and flowers looking great for our guest to admire. We are truly grateful that you took the time to post your feedback. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest, and we hope to get the pleasure of welcoming you back in our lobby soon. * Book Direct with Us - For the Best Service, Selection, and Value! *

We only stayed one night. But it was wonderful. The building, lobby, pool, room, breakfast, Etc. It was me, niece, and friends first time staying here. We were all impressed. But I was especially impressed with everything. It is a nice little Inn. Their system was down, but they still worked hard. I am looking forward to staying here again next year sometime. For two nights. Thank You. Todd Graubard.

We stayed here 7 nights and I don't have one bad thing to say about this hotel. The hotel was very clean and nice, room was comfortable (loved the 2 sinks, one of which was outside the bathroom), breakfast was good, staff was efficient and pleasant, great location (walk to Old Town and many bus lines, including the city's free airport shuttle). I would stay here again when visiting San Diego.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania26 contributions10 helpful votes
The staff was exceedingly nice and friendly. The place is an older building, but very well maintained. It had a nice breakfast buffet (waffle-maker, yogurt, cereals, juices, coffees, bagels, breakfast pastries, breads, fruit, etc.) and a swimming pool. It has very nice amenities. They obviously take care of little things that matter. Although it is close to the airport, there was little noticeable noise. The price was very reasonable, and we will definitely consider staying here again if the opportunity to visit San Diego arises again. Only two challenges. Our room was comfortable and clean, but without a desk so there wasn't any area to work comfortably with my laptop. The neighborhood is going through some construction and there seems to be a homelessness problem in the area.

Dear Pittsburghwhitebeard, Thank you for such a glowing review about your recent stay with us here at the Old Town Inn San Diego! It sounds like you had a wonderful stay at our property, and we’re thrilled you were impressed with our hotel as well as our nice and friendly staff. I agree the owners, management and staff take great pride in keeping the property well maintained and the grounds lush and inviting. As you mention, San Diego is like any major city, that has a problem with homelessness. Our community, social agencies and our police force are working to try to find solutions for this problem but it is slow going. In the meantime, we continue to look for ways to keep our guest and our staff safe and comfortable. Thank you for staying with us! The greatest compliment we can receive from a guest is the knowledge that they enjoyed their stay so much that they would be staying with us again when back in to our beautiful City.

The Old Town Inn is centrally located in San Diego. They have clean, comfortable rooms and a beautiful pool. The BEST part of the Old town Inn is their staff. The front desk always accommodated our needs from incidentals, to information to taking care of any need. BUT, what we were so impressed with was the personal interactions and recommendations they provided. On our last day, we had to check out at 11:00 but our plane didn’t leave til 7:00 PM. Don the maintenance manager recommended the Seaport Village, Balboa Point and the greatest Mexican restaurant Miguel’s. Our trip ended on such a positive note due to his kindness - and I was able to eat myself silly on the great food. Thank you to all the staff and management for making our stay in San Diego so pleasurable.

No wonder they are ranked high on trip advisor! What sets them apart is the staff that really made you feel like they care about you like family. From inquiries for booking, to check in, to numerous request while checked in the staff has been top notch. Their petite king room is perfect for us and it's located close to the pool. The petite king room is newly renovated and the room was decorated tastefully modern like a 5 star hotel. Free breakfast every morning is simple but filling (they had hard boiled eggs, cereal stations, fruit, yogurt and make your own waffle station, oatmeal). You can't really complain since most other hotels don't even come with free breakfast. It is a great deal for the price. Location is perfect since old town is within walking distance and the transit center can take you anywhere from the international boarder to downtown little Italy without having to pay for expensive Uber. Oh and they have free shuttle from the airport that takes you right to across street from the hotel. Thank you Sydney, Sam and Joshua and many other staff that made our stay a highlight of our trip, we will definitely be back!

Our rating is an indication of our team’s dedication to give the best of themselves to each and every guest. From the front desk staff who welcome our guests, to our housekeepers who keep our rooms spotless, to our maintenance crew who keep things working properly, to our landscaper who help our flowers bloom. I am very proud of our staff! Thank you for mentioning our free amenities that you may end up having to pay in more expensive hotels. Yes, we do offer free wireless internet, free parking, DVD players in all guestrooms. A thoughtfully selected free movie library and a nice complimentary expanded continental breakfast that includes hard boiled eggs, fresh waffles, a variety selection of bagels and pastries, cereals, steel cut oatmeal and orange juice; coffee and tea service all day. I am very happy to hear you found our location to be very convenient and took advantage of the "Free Shuttle" that stops across our hotel as well as the public transportation, it is definitely very convenient and saves you the hassle of trying to find parking wherever you go. Thank you for staying with us. We look forward to your next visit!
