Hacienda Hotel in Old Town

Earlier this year Mark and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary in Old Town San Diego. We had such a relaxing weekend. We had tasty margaritas at Cafe Coyote and an awesome meal at Barleymash but I hadn’t yet shared what a nice time we had at the The Hacienda Hotel. The hotel made for the perfect San Diego staycation spot, or the center hub of our adventures. We mainly stayed around Old Town but we also took the trolley downtown a couple times.

I love the restaurants and nightlife of downtown but having a quiet spot to come back to in the evening is definitely what this overworked couple needed. It was super easy and inexpensive to hop on the trolley to enjoy downtown and Little Italy. We purchased a 2 day ticket for $12 each. We also enjoyed touring around Old Town and being able to walk to every spot we wanted to check out.


The hotel has a restaurant on the top level overlooking all of old town: The Old Town Tequila Factory. They have an awesome brunch that you can get included in your hotel stay if you book a package. They have everything on the menu from tacos to churros. I, of course had the unlimited champagne too.


Our room was incredibly spacious and really comfortable. I love the old town charm and feel of the whole hotel.


We also went to Monello one night and brought back some cookies. Love Monello.


We were hoping to use the pool that weekend but it was a little chilly out and we were too busy eating. Next time we go we will have to take advantage of this beautiful setting.

The really crazy thing is that I actually went to the gym while we were there. I never seem to make time for the gym these days but a few months ago it was more of a priority. I also knew we were eating our way around San Diego and needed to get in a run. The gym had all the necessary equipment, a TV and a cool space to get a workout in.

Staying in Old Town is really something every San Diegan should try. It is a reminder of the old days and just such a nice place to stroll around in.
