We stayed here over Thanks Giving. We will be coming back. Breakfast just hit the spot. The staff was wonderful and very friendly and helpful. Free movie rentals to go with the DVR's in the rooms. We stayed in the large suites. Very nice and clean. So happy we found this place.

Great place. I needed batteries and they gave me some. Also, they have free movie rentals. I stayed only one night so I did not get to try the heated outdoor pool. I woke up late so I didn't try their free continental breakfast either.

The hotel is just a few minutes walk from Old Town and the Trolley station. Getting to downtown or Little Italy is therefore very easy. The airport is just a few minutes by taxi away.

The Inn is a very charming place in San Diego and good value for money. The free breakfast is a valuable addition. The room was nice and clean, although a bit noisy due to the freeway and PCH nearby. It offer easy access to downtown with the train and lots of restaurants nearby.
