... again to Aquatica, Dad (in his old age) keeps struggling to get in and out the car and winges about it everything he has to get it, I find it hilarious!!! First thing when arriving was to buy a tshirt to cover my kayaking sunburn and avoid a blistering situation!! Found one in the shop that looks like a wetsuit top, looks suspiciously like I have accepted a job at Seaworld training whales and whatnot!! Had a great day at the watermark, ...
Up bright and early. Quick b/fast at Burger King, and then some site seeing around Sedona, a little smokey but never the less beautiful. We had a look at The Chapel of The Holy Cross, built on the side of the canyon in 1956, and has since been made a national monument, due to its unusual design and location. Went for a look at Montezuma's Castle. A deserted Pueblo Indian ...

We returned to the hotel and then went to see the pool. This was on the 6th floor of the hotel overlooking the city. It was great. Boys swam and we sat in the hot tubs. This is getting quite a habit now.
Another long day traveling and a complete contrast yet again to everywhere we have been. My first impressions of San Diego is that it is very relaxed and anything goes. Think I'm gonna like it here a ...
... whole time so water activities were out. We saw the seals and sea lions at La Jolla, twice. Once by bicycle from the hostel and then Graham took us again. Saturday night we went to their friends house - Taylor & Josh, who cooked up a mean feed and had a fire pit going out the back where we were introduced to a s'more - biscuits with fire roasted marshmallows and melted Hershey's chocolate. ...
... from the blog updates I read 4 books while I was there and loved it. It was nice too because the place I was staying had nightly entertainment and a nice restaurant so a lot of people from other hostels and hotels around come over for dinner, so most nights I would meet people at dinner and chat, so it was a nice balance of quiet time to myself during the day but a little bit of social in the evenings.
The flight home was really easy, I was surprised. It is only ...

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.
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.
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.
