This place rocks. Simple, clean, updated enough, not fancy, great location and service.... amazing price....AAA discount. Breakfast is decent and trolly across the street, old town 3 blocks away. Love the free off street parking and super clean pool. Perfect for our family.....every time.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your kind words! We love it when guests “get us”. We are a modest, AAA 2-star rated hotel with a single-minded dedication to consistent service, quality, and value. We offer many free amenities that you may end up having to pay in more expensive hotels: free wireless internet, free parking, free coffee and tea service all day, a thoughtfully selected free movie library, DVD players in all guestrooms, and a nice complimentary expanded continental breakfast that includes hard boiled eggs, fresh waffles, a variety of freshly baked bagels and pastries, cereals, oatmeal, fruit salad, juices and coffee. Being across the street from the Transit/Trolley Center also allows our guests to travel all over San Diego without moving their car.

Our company culture is to provide quality, affordability, and genuine hospitality to our guests. Thank you again for your review. We look forward to seeing you and your family again very soon!

Sincerely,

The Staff at the Old Town Inn

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in March at the Old Town Inn.
We chose it because of reviews we had read on Trip Advisor.
We were 100% thrilled with our decision to stay there and not unhappy
with anything there. The staff was cheerful, helpful in any way they
could be and made our stay very pleasant! The breakfast they had
was excellent and above most of the other places we had been to over the years.
A delightful surprise was that they had "real" plates and silverware, instead of
the usual flimsy foam & plastic! Coffee in lobby all day and a fire going in the fireplace, made
you feel right at home. We will stay there again when in San Diego.

Room Tip: Our King size room was great, large, with microwave and small fridge. On first floor with plenty of free parking!

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to write such a kind review of us on TripAdvisor. We are really glad that you enjoyed the plates and silverware as this is a new upgrade to our hotel that stemmed from a day when our General Manager had a waffle and we realized that it’s not easy to eat with plastic utensils and a Styrofoam plate, it can make things really sticky! :) Not only do the real plates and silverware make breakfast easier and more enjoyable for our guests but it is also helping to reduce our carbon footprint just like the recycling bins we have around the property, including one in each room to make it as easy as possible for our guests to join us in our effort to recycle.

I’d like to thank you again for your review here on TripAdvisor and we do hope to see you again soon!

Regards,

Rebecka
Front Desk Agent | Old Town Inn

I've been to all the expensive resort hotels in the county and this was the best value for the money! The staff is very friendly and helpful, our room was spacious, clean and comfy, and we were pleasantly surprised at the amenities usually only found in much more pricey hotels, such as a dvd player in-room, organic soap and shampoo, iron and ironing board, blow dryer, plenty of towels and washcloths, and a kitchenette in our deluxe queen studio. We had a nice breakfast every morning with the complimentary spread in the breakfast room and tea, coffee and water are available until 11pm. The only reason it doesn't get 5 circles is because of its location, which is very industrial and a little strange to maneuver in traffic, as well as a bit noisy. These things didn't really bother us, but others may find it a little off-putting. On the other hand, it is centrally located for siteseeing, getting to local attractions and airport runs. We will definitely be back for future "staycations"!

Very basic and clean rooms. Free parking. Service was excellent. Easy access to the highway to get to Balboa Park and downtown. 2 minute walk to the public transportation and to downtown Old Town. Complimentary breakfast served in the morning; pastries, fruit, hard boiled eggs, cereal, waffle maker etc. Best service I have ever had at a hotel and very affordable! I defiantly recommend this place if your looking for a basic, affordable place to stay on vacation.

Janet received a bad cut on her hand at the trolley station. When we got to the inn, the ladies at the counter provided us with supplies to patch her up and were very concerned for her. She's doing well now thanks to them. The rooms were neat and clean. Needless to say, the next time we visit San Diego, my home town, we will be staying at the Old Town Inn.

Room Tip: Avoid room with a room above it.
