I am so happy I chose this hotel for our 5 day stay in San Diego. The rooms were clean, well appointed but the location ended up making this the best choice. It is within walking distance (< 5 min) to the Amtrak train and Old Town. Less than a 10 minute drive to shopping, groceries and restaurants and maybe...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Old Town Inn as it is close to central, yet out of town feel. We enjoyed visiting Old Town on a previous visit, and thought it would be nice to stay near this quaint neighbourhood. The Inn was easy to get to by transit; as we took the bus from airport and then the...

I took my grand-daughter and her little best friend to see Blake Shelton at the Valley View Casino Arena and, in looking for motels nearby (on-line) found this beautiful little place. I'd have never guessed such a cute place would be in the industrial type area it's in but it was only a few miles, if that, from the Arena...

Used as a hub for visiting San Diego sites such as Old Town, Zoo, Balboa Park, etc. Staff was very helpful with information about transportation. Also had discount zoo tickets. A varied continental breakfast with good oatmeal, waffles, cereals, pastries. Also a "crustless" quiche which wasn't my favorite.

I opted to stay at Old Town Inn based on TripAdvisor's ratings and definitely glad I did. The location was perfect for driving to MCRD; less than 1.5 miles away. The room was clean & spacious (3 adults), the staff pleasant & accommodating and; with the few hours of free time, we were able to walk to & around Old...

The staff were courteous and extremely helpful. They offered a great deal for our 5 night stay and we originally planned on staying only 2. Conveniently located walking distance from old town and short drive to airport or downtown San Diego. King bedroom was fairly roomy and clean. Would suggest upstairs room if available, could really hear guest thumping around...

The service and the people were great, walking distance to Old Town, close to MCRD gate 5 and the rental car garage. The free breakfast was good and they also have free parking. If you are going to San Diego for Marine Boot Camp graduation I would definitely recommend staying there. We would definitely stay there again.

The photos of the Inn indicate that it is a lot more charming than the reality. It is located immediately off a rather unattractive industrial roadway. That said- our room in the back of the property was very clean and perfectly comfortable for a motel. It is located about 1/4 mile walk to Old town through a parking lot for...

The hotel is in a great location if you need to catch an early morning flight from the airport. Less than 5 minutes to the rental car return. The location, however, is not scenic or near any good areas to eat or walk. Old town is nearby, but you have to walk under I-5. The room was good: spacious, good...
