Although located on a busy street, the rooms are very quite. The staff is very friendly and the room was spotless. The prices are reasonable. Would definitely stay here the next time we are in San Diego. Breakfast in the morning and hot coffee and tea available throughout the day. It is an easy 5-minute walk into Old Town with... More

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.
