Overpriced budget motel room.

Posted Oct 11, 2014
Pros: The one thing that this hotel has going for it is the cleaning staff. They did an excellent job.
Cons: Heating and cooling are terrible. Mattresses are old and worn out. Get a friendly staff that makes customers feel welcome.
Location: Old Town San Diego is nice to visit for a couple of hours, no more. There is nothing to do except eat mexican food that is "meh" at best.
This motel is old and wore out. The staff appears to tolerate guests rather than welcome them. I would say that they are charging double what this place is worth. I am very disappointed in myself as I booked this hotel based on the name Merriot. Don't let that fool you, this is not a nice hotel. It is an overpriced budget room.

Nice hotel, right in old town.

Stayed one night, for an event in old town. Liked the, kind of village atmosphere of the hotel. Staff was really nice. Will definitely stay here again.

clean and close to attractions

Little pricey, had to additionally pay for underground parking unless you can find street parking, but had a decent breakfast and walking distance from old town and bus depot for the beach. Expedia booked us a room with a balcony and it was clean.

Close to Old Town!

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Proximity to Old Town and freeway
Great staff, very convenient to resturants, shopping and walking distance to Old Town, even with young children! The pool was great, not to deep, perfect for kids to play.

Walking distance to Old Town and convenient to Zoo

Posted Aug 5, 2014
The pictures posted didnt do the hotel justice. It was very nice and the location to shopping and night life of Old Time was great and the drive to the zoo was short. We didnt get the room we booked due to overbooking, but they gave us an upgrade to a king suite. Breakfast was food too and had a variety of hot foods and muffins and fruit. Will stay there again.

Fantastic location

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Lovely hotel in a historic neighbourhood. Close to public transport and restaurants. Old Town very lively at night. We stayed for Comic Con and transport was brilliant but many lovely areas within a few mins drive or bus ride. San Diego is an amazing city and we will definitely be back to the Fairfield Inn again!

I stayed at this hotel while I was in San Diego attending Comic Con. Location was nice,walking distance to the trolley, food and old town. The room was clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was awesome! especially Ms. Camarillo.

Very comfortable, quiet place in a convenient location to downtown and other areas (with a car.) Nice breakfast and fitness room! Good location for walking to Old Town.
