If you are interested in Old Town, this is the hotel for you. It is also central to many San Diego attractions. However, the location is strange -- in an almost industrial area. That being said, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the staff was great, breakfast was very good, and the wifi worked well. My only complaint...

Picture and reviews looked great. Sadly surprised when we arrived and Inn was surrounded by homeless people in shady area. Staff were nice but our only thought is "can we call to get bars put on windows" and "will all my tires be on our car in the morning". Sometimes cheap and close is not a good idea.

We stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it! It is within walking distance to Old Town and even though it's by the interstate it doesn't feel like it. The heated pool and daily breakfast was great! Large selection of food and 2 different kinds of waffles. The crustless quiche and steel cut oats were a pleasant surprise. People...

Stayed at Old Town Inn for three nights. Room was clean and quiet. Hotel staff very pleasant and the morning breakfast was good and an upgrade to the usual complimentary breakfast.

We chose the Old Town Inn after reading reviews and were glad we did. The value for what you get can't be beat in this town. The room and grounds were clean and the breakfast was more than adequate. The location is also very convenient being a half block from the transit hub and Old Town San Diego. Downtown SD...

I chose this hotel based on the price and the excellent reviews. The service was great and the room was clean and of adequate size.

Snobs and 5 Star folks will probably not appreciate the wonderful charm of this somewhat historic motel. Just down the road from Old Town and the Trolley. There are some homeless but harmless folks down the road under the overpass. Not to worry, the ambiance of the motel and Old Town overcome the reality we see in many towns these...

Fairly basic accommodation, but everything I needed. Good self service breakfast and a few nice touches like tea, coffee, fruit and cold, lemon water available all day.
