We stayed a fri/sat night to see SeaWorld. The hotel was just a quarter mile from the Amtrak station and the bus to SeaWorld. And a short walk to "Perry's", a fab breakfast diner. The hotel room (#248) was clean and bed was comfortable. The room was very small, but fine for a short stay. Negatives: not enough plugs for...

We've stayed 3 nights at the Old Town Inn. Really convenient location - 10min driving to Sea World, 20min driving to San Diego Zoo, and a walking distance from Old Town (Mexican colonization, really interesting to visit or to have a dinner next to the hotel). Our room was comfortable, simple but well furnished and clean. Good breakfast with fruits,...

We were not driving - when making initial enquiries we...

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.

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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,...

I booked here based on all the very good reviews this place has received. I got turned around trying to find the place but I found it pretty quicky on Pacific Highway. The surrounding area makes you raise an eyebrow as might a few stray characters walking around the general area, but I decided to let the hotel speak for...
