“Would go back to this hotel again”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

We were in the new section. Room could have been a little bigger but was nice and clean. Appreciated the space in the vanity area. Would have liked a flat screen TV but how much TV do you watch anyway in a hotel. Had to laugh at the shower head because I remembered a review where the guy said it was low. I confirm. It is low. We are not tall so it did not bother us. Another plus : it is dog friendly.

Room Tip: we were in an inside corner, so the room was a little dark during day time. If you want more light...

Dear Valued Guest,

We’re glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay here at the Old Town Inn. Our deluxe rooms are approximately 350 square feet, and so while some guests feel that the rooms are very spacious, others like yourself may find them a little smaller than what you are normally accustomed to. I think as you mentioned, the extra-long vanity counter outside of the bathrooms in our deluxe section really comes in handy with all of the toiletries most of us carry around when traveling, especially for longer trips. In regards to the issue of the lower height of the showerheads in our deluxe rooms, the management is in the process of having those refitted with additional hardware to raise the height of the showerheads, as even I found them to be somewhat low. The owner and manager definitely appreciate all feedback they receive so they can find out what issues may need to be addressed. Thanks again for your kind review, and we hope you will consider us for your next stay in San Diego.

We were a bit nervous when we first arrived, as the hotel seemed to be on a main road, but it was really quiet, and the location was really convenient. It was a short drive from the gas lamp quarter and to other attractions. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was great. Parking is provided.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you so much for your review here on TripAdvisor. We really appreciate you taking the time out of your day and we are very happy to hear how much you enjoyed our hotel. Our location is just one of the things that our guests like about the Old Town Inn, we’re so centrally located, we don’t have traffic issues, and if you don’t have a car, we’re across the street from the bus/trolley, making it easy to get to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Downtown and the Gaslamp District.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Regards,

Rebecka
