We live in SD but wanted to get away for the weekend and stay somewhere in budget and nice. We love Old Town so this hotel suited us great. We were in the 2 queen bedroom with our 17 month old son it suited us great. Good fit for a family of 4. Buffet was the best offered continental breakfast I have had at a hotel. They had such great variety. Grounds are beautifully kept. Pool looked very inviting and clean. In the heart of San Diego. Great if your visiting to want to see the zoo, go downtow/ night life, Old Town of course and the ocean and airport. Found this hotel from trip advisor because it was rated so high in SD. One thing they could update are the TV's other than that great standard hotel.

Dear Vamartinez05,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Old Town Inn. It’s great to read such a wonderful review, especially from a fellow San Diegan! We are honored that you chose the Old Town Inn for your family’s vacation, and very happy to hear that your stay went so well.

I’m also glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed the room. We are in the process of installing new flat screens to every room, along with our DVD players. Next time you and your family visit, check out our free DVD collection. We have thoughtfully selected many different movies, old and new, and the majority of them are great for watching with the family.

Thank you for mentioning our continental breakfast and lush grounds. The Old Town Inn staff works hard to get these seemingly small things right, because we know that they are very important to our guests. It is always helpful to know what pleases our guests so that we can continue to provide the service and amenities that you/they expect.

As you mentioned, the Old Town Inn is in a unique place for a hotel. One benefit of being in a more industrial setting than a typical commercial setting is that it tends to be very quiet at night since there is not a lot of traffic. I will freely admit that it may not be what people are used to but the majority of our guests enjoy the convenience of our property – short walk to the Transit Center, walk to Old Town, 2 miles from Sea World, 3 miles from the zoo, 3 miles to beaches, and 2 miles to Downtown. The owner likes to joke that “we are nowhere but minutes to everywhere,” which could not be more true.

Thank you again for the kind review, we truly appreciate your feedback. We hope to see you again very soon.

Sincerely,

Alex | Customer Service Agent
Old Town Inn

Hardly 5 min walk from Old Town. Not exactly in Old Town. It's a walk through a parking lot but not bad at all. Was pleasently surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel. Room was excellent and both staff members we talked to were friendly and helpful. Free Parking and Continental Breakfast available.
Now we know why this hotel is highly rated

The hotel is located within walking distance of Old Town, but you have to cross the Pacific Coast Highway, through a parking lot, and under train tracks to get there. This is an industrial area. The front desk said that they've never had concerns with guests walking at night in the area, but I wouldn't. The room was very clean and in good condition. The building has a certain charm. We spent two nights there and that was plenty. Gets the job done. Worth the price.

This was our second stay at the Old Town Inn in San Diego, and we were happy with the consistent value and service. Staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms comfortable and clean, well kept grounds with beautiful flora. We appreciated the free parking and wifi, microwave & fridge and the complimentary breakfast.
