La Quinta: Pet friendly!

-Breakfast was served from 6:30am-9am Pacific time.
-Breakfast choices were waffle, muffins, danish, bagel, toast, boiled egg, yogurt, cereal, apple, orange, banana. Drinks-coffee, tea, cocoa, juices were orange, cranberry and two others I can't remember.
-First breakfast was quiet, only 3 others in room. Other two mornings it was very busy and we ended up eating outside by pool or in room because the breakfast room was filled up at 6:30am!
-The air conditioner was very loud but it drowned out the noise from the interstate , so was a plus.

There was a clean pool and spa that we didn't use but many other guests at the hotel enjoyed them.
There were some snacks and drinks for sale in the lobby.
The parking was in a garage underneath the building.
Walking to and from the Old Town area for food and early morning photo ops (old town district) doesn't "wake" until 10 am.
It was somewhat of a smaller room than I am used to staying in and didn't include a sofa, or extra chairs aside from chair at a table- so if you need more-may want to call ahead to see if the other accommodations are different.

Western Inn: Western Inn - Great Location, No frills

This hotel is right in the heart of Old Town. It certainly was not a great lots of features hotel but it provided a good place to sleep while enjoying the Old Town attractions. The price is a lot cheaper than other hotels around the area and since I was in town mainly for business and seeing the sites I was only in the hotel for a couple hours of sleep each night and it gave me zero trouble.

Great location for visiting Old Town attractions.

Courtyard Marriot, Old Town, San Diego, California: Renovated and easy access to freway.

We were quite pleased by this hotel. It has been recently renovated and located perfect for us. Good for business people and families. A real plus it is located about 2 blocks from Old Town. Several nice restaurants within walking distance.

Location, ambience and near many tourist attractions and close to downtown.

Holiday Inn Express: 100 % Non Smoking Hotel!

Holiday Inn Express is moderately priced and offers the basic amenities, including an outdoor swimming pool. The address is on San Diego Avenue, but the practical entrance is on the street behind, where there is not so much traffic making it easier to unload and load luggage.

There is some off-street parking, but don't count on that. Holiday Inn Express charges $10.00 per night for parking in their underground garage.

Spanish colonial style hotel located at the south end of the main activity of Old Town, on the corner of Old Town Avenue and San Diego Avenue. The entrance is in the back on Jefferson Street off Old Town Avenue.

Worth noting, this is a "Non-Smoking" hotel.

Western Inn and Suites: An Independent Hotel

This is a bare, basics type hotel, the type to choose only for a place to sleep, yet it is convenient to the action in Old Town.

The price of a room here is at least $50.00 less than the other places around and if saving on hotel costs is more important than all the amenities, then this might be your solution.

No on-site restaurant, but they do give out a continental breakfast without extra charge.

The Western Inn is an independent hotel which means that it is not connected to a chain of hotels that will offer the world with the price of a room. The location is a plus for anyone who wants a more secluded place to stay. It is about two blocks from San Diego Avenue--which is the busiest street of Old Town--located just behind the Holiday Inn Express.

Free parking can be a problem, but there is charged parking available. However, most of the things to see and do in Old Town is within walking distance, if walking is no problem for you.

Marriot Courtyard San Diego Old Town: Old Town Location

Tucked away on a side street, Marriot Courtyard is only a block away from one of the main streets in Old Town. It is part of a large chain of hotels and the amenities are the usual offered at a Marriot.

I haven't stayed here of course, but this is a reliable chain and stylish without being pretentious. They have a pool and a work-out room and there is a $15.00 fee for parking your car over night, which is less that at many other hotels in SD, including other Marriots.

The building has a nice old mansion look to it and the lobby is comfortable. There is an in-house restaurant, The Courtyard Bistro with patio dining which is most interesting to me. They also give a list of nearby restaurants that will deliver food to you at the hotel. When I was at the Marriot, the staff was very polite and helpful.

Hacienda Hotel: A Convenient Best Western!

This seems a nice hotel and the size of it is not apparent at first sight. Each room has a balcony or is connected to a courtyard which makes outside leisure attainable.

I have not stayed here, but have been here for specific events and it seems a nice, quiet area to stay away from the activity going on in Old Town most of the time.

What drew my attention to this hotel was the lush landscaping and the atmosphere of this secluded hillside retreat. It is barely noticable from street level and obsured by plenty of tropicla plants, but just a block from the busiest sections of Old Town.

Acapulco Restaurant & Cantina is the in-house restaurant and the food they serve is pretty good as is the service.
