It was the 2nd time my wife and I stayed at the Western Inn. We love this place. The rooms are clean and cozy, and it's walking distance to Old Town. The owners are also very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back, and highly recommend it as a nice and affordable place to stay for others!

Short walk to Old Town, price was very reasonable, staff was friendly, fridge and a microwave in room. Security appeared to be good. Parking spots in garage are tight but manageable. Overall good value.

If you don't mind staying in an older hotel this one has the benefit of a reasonable price and excellent location. Walking distance from Old Town San Diego sights and restaurants. Short driving distance to MCRD and SD airport. Clean room. My only complaint is the parking garage is tiny, but it works and we were grateful for a place... More

Let me start by saying this isn't a five star hotel, so do not expect it to be. However, I had the most pleasant stay. We stayed for three nights. The hotel room and bathroom were spacious, and clean. Room came with a large sofa, computer desk, tv with multiple channels, comfy bed, full length mirror, spacious bathroom with a... More

Great location in Old Town. The front desk staff were excellent. Couldn't get consistent internet in the room. It was very spotty but was able to use computer in front office. Transit connections were good.

The location was great but the room was dirty. We stayed in a 2 room suite, both beds in one room, the room was laid out strange.The furniture was very old and smelly and not very clean. The floor in the bathroom was dirty. This hotel definitely could use an update. There were holes in the wall where picture once... More

Overall our trip was awesome because we were able to see our new Marine graduate from MCRD. This hotel is very close to both MCRD and Old Town San Diego. This hotel is very old and our room definitely showed that. I think there are some nicer rooms based on pictures we have seen but we were not so lucky.... More

Our family of three generations stayed at the Western Inn and found it most ideally located for a visit to Old Town San Diego. The rooms were clean and comfortable. It was great to park the van and walk. Our hotelier was most helpful and charming. Thanks for the voucher for the Coyote Cafe.

The room was great and clean. Quiet place close to Old Town, short drive to the Hatboro and other points of interest in San Diego. Will definitely stay there again, friendly front desk clerk. Great Value for the price.
