We struggled finding a place to stay that was close to Sea World and the zoo. We were going between two hotels but after asking about them here on the forum we were swayed away from both hotels. We decided to go with Old Town Inn after looking at the reviews and we are glad we did. First of all the staff was kind, helpful, resourceful and willing to go up and above their job to make our stay a good one. We were greeted by Cesar with maps, and the best places to eat. The breakfast was good with lots of chooses such as waffles, oatmeal, fruit, bagels, toast, juice, and milk. The pool was clean and well kept. The laundry room was perfect for us since I needed to do laundry before going onto Carlsbad for another four days. The washer and dryer was clean and worked as it should. In fact, I expected to feed the dryer money more than once, but I didn't have to. The room was perfect for us, 3 adults and 2 children. The coffee pot didn't work well, but that's the only negative thing I can say. We had two tv's so the kids could watch what they wanted to. We had a kitchenette but didn't cook. The restaurants were near by just as the shopping was. There were no hidden charges and the place was priced well. I was surprised that the Old Town Inn wasn't mentioned in the 2013 Fodor's. As a last note, I would like to add that we went to Carlsbad for business the last 4 days of our trip and stayed in a plush and very beautiful resort that was substantially more money and in our opinion our stay at the Old Time Inn superseded them in many ways. Our room was more comfortable, the customer service was outstanding and there was no hidden costs everytime you turned around. Old Town Inn is top notch with us.
