We stayed for a week at the Hampton Inn Downtown in San Diego. It could not have been a better location for sightseeing. The trolley was a block away as was the Embarcadero and all the beautiful restaurants and attractions along San Diego Bay. We bought a compass pass that enabled us to travel all over the city on buses... More

Arrived late during the week, and from the start the staff was exceptional!!! Joseph, Ellis, Mrs. Laurie, Mrs, Connie, and the rest of the ENTIRE staff were very professional and polite. Never was a question that they couldn't answer. Always go out of their way to help you. Breakfast at this Hampton is the best in the country!!! Parking spaces... More

We arrived in San Diego late on New Year's Eve and the parking lot at the hotel was full. The parking attendant asked us to leave the car outside and talk to the reception desk, who were extremely unhelpful in getting us a solution. There was some space outside the hotel where our car could have been left for a... More

The location by the train is a downer but you could not get a better staff to take care of you. They provide everything. Excellent breakfast, shuttle rides to zoo and to the airport, good location in the harbor area. Very clean and very busy. Very close to the cruise terminal. You can walk to the cruise ship. Outside of... More

Once again, the staff were exceptional! A shout out to both Connie and Blanca at the front desk. This is an older Hampton Inn and it is close to the train and harbor. Great for getting around but not great if you're a light sleeper. (They do provide earplugs.) The hotel has been well maintained and is very clean. I... More

1 King Bed Study with Sofabed - Non-Smoking Rm 401 Check in was extremely quick and friendly; mind you it was a lot of information to take in, in a 20 second spiel. Parking is right next to the entrance, and only $12 per day. Some of the bays are quite small, so a full size car can be painful... More

At first, this hotel seems perfectly fine. Lobby is nice, staff are courteous. The problem is the location, which is truly, literally, on the railroad tracks. Yes, you can hear the announcements and bells, trains and trams thundering by at all hours. Upon entering the room, my daughter immediately noticed the earplugs and then we saw and heard the trains.... More
