    Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn & Suites San Diego Old Town

    Great place for a family vacation

    from

    Staff was so helpful, esspecially Holly. It was such a nice change from high rises, and crowds. The free breakfast every morning was good, and the deli across the street was a real plus. We would recommend to anyone staying in San Diego.

    Very Nice!

    from

    We were very impressed by the courtesy and caring of the staff. Even received a phone call before checkout to determine if our stay was satisfactory. Rooms were clean and the grounds were well maintained.

    The only criticism I have is that the door between adjoining rooms is not at all sound proofed. We had some ladies in the next room and we could hear their conversation clearly. Luckily they retired early and presented no problem.

    The location could not be more convenient for tourists. It is only as short walk to Old Town and a good Mexican restaurant, Rancho Leno is right across the street.

    Highly recommend

    from

    Hotel is in an excellent location - can walk to town as parking is difficult. Rooms clean, staff friendly, free newspaper daily and good breakfast. Deli located right across the street.

    Lots of friendly faces

    from

    The location of this hotel may be great, but the friendly staff makes this hotel more than great. With lots of sun and smiles, my time here was a memorable one.

    Great location,average accomodations

    from

    This property offers a great location if you are relying on public transportation. We walked to the trolley stop each day of our vacation. There are some nice coffee shops along the way as well as many great places to eat. The rooms were average, maid service was good. The rooms were always cleaned in a reasonable amount of time. We did have some problems with our windows leaking and our floor getting soaked (it rained heavy 2 days of our vacation). After we complained, they did move us. The second room however, was located under a set of outside stairs and was a bit noisey. We also had water in this room, just not as much. The courtyard and pool area is nice, never crowded. Service was average, some employees great,(Holly) others slightly rude. Another problem was the airport courtesy van. I called the hotel from the airport to pick us up, they said the driver was in a meeting and couldn't pick us up so we should take a cab. Since we were early for check in I asked if we should wait or come right away for an early check in. They told me to come right away, we did and ended up waiting 1.5 hours to actually get into our room. Location of this hotel did make up for the deficits. Price is also right if all you plan to do is sleep and take a quick dip in pool/hot tub. Nice little deli across the street as well.

    Really enjoyable time in Old Town San Diego

    from

    This used to be the Ramada Inn Old Town. Very nice hotel, and really enjoyed our stay. It's a mission style and rooms surround a courtyard filled with palm trees & flowers. Old town is a great place to stay with lots of shopping, and it really is the original town of San Diego with historical buildings and museums. We didn't even rent a car, but used the transit station about 5 blocks from the hotel for buses and trolleys(electric trains) to Sea World, Zoo & Beaches. Much more relaxing when you don't have to fight traffic and wander through an unfamiliar city. Staff was excellent and very helpful.

    Loved The Ramada

    from

    We spent a little over a week here between 21st and 29th of Oct .The Room was great Close to Zoo, Sea World And other Points of Interest too numerous to list.

    Excellent hotel for a holiday

    from

    Have just spent a week at this hotel and highly recommend it. My room overlooked the pretty courtyard, whose fountain drowns out the freeway noise. A downtown bus stops right outside every 30 minutes otherwise its a pleasant 10 minutes stroll through Old Town State Park to the transit centre, where buses and trolleys go everywhere you would want to visit. Oh, and the complementary breakfast is pretty good as well!

    Good place to stay!

    from

    Moved out of the Ramada GasLamp to this hotel, and was very pleased! Much better facility, very friendly, helpful staff, great amenities. Easy to get places from here, but Old Town has a lot to offer itself.

    Excellent stay at the Ramada Old Town

    from

    Have just spent 11 nights at the Ramada Old Town. No luxuries, just straight forward good facilities at a good price with excellent service, friendly staff. Room had a super Spanish style feel with balcony; also a lovely courtyard garden with small but adequate pool and spa. Very close to a good general store, restaurants and bars of Old Town and easy walking distance to trolley stop.

    Highly recommended.

    ... first then hop on the double decker open top bus for a full circuit of the zoo in 35 minutes. There is a queue for this which takes us 35 minutes to get on. Everything to do or buy you queue for. You gotta be prepared for that. Customer service is very much next in line unless you wear a Sydney t -shirt you might get a bit of a conversation.

    ... of San Diego, which is where the original town stood, and it has authentic buildings and shops with people wearing the correct dress for the time period. The shops included places to buy rocks (opals, amethysts etc.), jewelry shops, saloons, restaurants, and of course candy shops. It was great to see all of the history that goes with the area! We returned home at around 9.30pm, so it was a long day for the younger people among us. ...

    hundred (600) people who boarded the ship. As a requirement,
    everybody should attend the emergency passenger drill.

    We've been here in San Diego several
    times in the past and had seen and explored the city hence I didn't
    arrange for any tours. We took a cab and went to Horton's Plaza in

    ... crazy and Simon thought we was going to die!! After, we took the easy approach to life and enjoyed the peaceful loggerhead lane, a circular route where you laid back on rings and enjoyed the sun. It wasn't too long until we decided to take on the Tassie's Twister!! First, you have to drag up a rather large and heavy ring and then ride down a series of in the dark tubes to be 'spat' out into what can only be described as a ...
