This was our 2nd time at this hotel. It is very conveniently located right by the airport, the waterfront, the Midway, Seaport Village and terrific restaurants. It is also about a block and half from the San Diego Trolley that takes you right to the Mexican border in Tijuana. As with all newly redecorated Hampton Inns, it no longer had... More

Newly renovated, this property is beautiful and welcoming. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the complimentary hot breakfast is right on point, with all of the offerings available in abundance and at the correct temperature. This is an ideal location--close to just about anything you might want to visit in San Diego--but be aware that it's located very near train... More

Thanks Ellis for helping us out. We needed an extra room and they were able to accommodate us with our request. The rooms were clean and quiet. The breakfast had fresh fruit. Great value. Ellis spent a very long time helping us process the change that we needed with the same price as the first room.

For a relaxing weekend get-away, this is the place to be. It is located across from the Star of India and a short walk to the Midway aircraft carrier. Little Italy is right behind the hotel, and access to trolley transportation is very convenient. Be sure to get a day pass so you can use it as often as you... More

Stayed here for business. Everything was perfect. Quiet, Pool was perfect to get some afternoon sun, great breakfast, and the staff were very helpful. Only one block from the tram. The hotel shuttle from the airport only took 10 minutes to pick me up. When I checked out the shuttle was ready to take me back to the airport. I... More

Nice place to stay when on business. Or a nice weekend getaway. Close to convention center. Nice walk along the waterfront. Entrance to Gas Lamp district with lots of fun restaurants. has a trolly to take you around downtown. Very good complimentary breakfast, something for everyone. Didn't try the pool but it looks like a good place to cool off.... More

I have seen this hotel many times as I am in SD a lot, but never considered staying at it because it is on a busy street and looks a little dingy from the exterior. I ended up needing a cheap room for a few nights for an unexpected trip and they were one of the cheapest options. Given they're... More

I recently visited San Diego for a business conference at the convention center. Hotels adjacent to the convention center were twice the cost of staying at the Hampton inn. The hotel is walking distance from the trolley so the convenient location is what I loved most. Only a few stops away is the Amtrak station and other downtown attractions. There... More

Hard to get rest here. Each room has individual air conditioning units and they are very noisy. Ours vibrated and made noise all night. Changing rooms wasn't much of an option since I could hear my neighbor's unit when mine cycled off! We stayed here due to the location relative to the pier, etc. I like the Hampton brand, but...
