    Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn & Suites San Diego Old Town

    Great place for a family vacation


    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!


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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!


    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


    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.

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the vessel and looking at the sleeping quarters, kitchen and dining area, medical and dental facilities. The ship even had a post office, jail and morgue on board.

    ... for me to go through the pain and stress. In the end, I was admitted to the hospital and given my own room. My pain was under control and we were both relieved to have a very nice, spacious room in a really quiet wing of the hospital. If I had to be in the hospital, it really was the nicest one I’d ever seen or been in before. I ended up spending the entire week in a hazy stupor as the nurses were great at controlling my pain. I endured the tube down ...

Observation of an Australian Tourist: the Americans are so very patriotic, and really do salute their military personnel. At the zoo and sea world, they and their families (serving or not) get in free, and at Seaworld before the show, they were asked to stand up and were clapped and shown on the large screen. At the Sheriffs museum they had a wall if fallen comrades on prominent display. Until Vegas - ...
