Laurie Jann the operations manager is one of the most accommodating persons that I have ever experienced. The staff is very friendly and personable. The hotel is clean and nice. I would highly recommend.

The hotel staff were friendly upon arrival . The room was clean and spacious . The hotel was located near several points of interests and tourist attractions . The breakfast was fresh and I had plenty to choose from . The only distraction was construction noise and amount of homeless people around the Hotel .

From the moment we arrived at the airport for our free ride to the hotel, to the special attention given to us by Joseph at the front desk to locate the perfect room for our stay, to the hot breakfast every morning, to the hot beverages in the lobby 24 hours a day, and the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies...

I was disappointed to find out that there is very little parking. We left at 7:30 p.m. to get dinner, and we could not find parking. Also, right outside our room was a train crossing. All night long, the bells would sound as the train approached. The hotel does offer complimentary earplugs. But really....we paid $149 for a room, I... More

Had the pleasure of staying here for a weekend (1/30 - 2/1) while I was in town for my cousin's wedding. I read all the reviews about the train and trolley noise so since I'm a light sleeper, I requested a room away from it. The room they put me in was near the pool and I never heard any... More

This location has everything you expect from a Hampton Inn: comfortable and clean rooms, free breakfast, and good service. The location can't be beat, as it is one short block to a trolley stop and the waterfront/USS Midway is a 10 minute walk. Unfortunately, the parking situation is awful. While the hotel has a parking garage, the parking spots are... More

I work for Hilton so I have the pleasure of getting discounted hotel rates. Even if I didn't this hotel is worth every penny. I've stayed here 3 nights in February 2014, and most recently in January 2015 for 3 nights.First off, it has a great location to Little Italy which I love exploring in San Diego.

Great kids playground just across the street, right by Little Italy and public transit (trolley). Trains, though, are the only drawback - they can be heard most of the day and night, especially in the back rooms. Ear plugs are provided, but it's not that bad - we never used them.
