We would like you to meet the WONDERFUL staff at Old Town Inn!


Every couple of weeks, we will be featuring a member of the Old Town Inn staff on our blog. We want to give our guests and followers a chance to find out what we’re all about, through the people who represent the heart and soul of this hotel, and this business.


Meet ANNA! (aka Santa) 



Anna is Old Town Inn’s Front Office Manager, and all-around Chargers and Margarita expert! Anna can make anyone laugh. But Anna knows even more about family: at home AND at work, Anna keeps the troops in line, and that is not an easy job!



Anna has been a member of the Old Town Inn family for 17 years. You may have seen Anna at the front desk, or heard great things about her through many guest comments on TripAdvisor. Either way, Anna’s vivacious, fun loving, kindhearted, and bubbly personality is just about impossible to miss! So listen up, people! You’re about to get some insider information from a true San Diegan.
