The hotel staff at this location is not helpful, rude and not honest with their clients. I had a horrible experience and wouldn't dream of ever staying here again. If i was you I would look into other hotels in the area that are comparable.

Very helpful staff, easy parking, close to a lot of attractions, clean, basic, everything you need without the extra frills that add to costs. A little noisy with the proximity to the trains and trolley, but put in the earplugs they provide, and you don't notice.

We always stay at Hampton Inns when we travel because of the cleanliness, nice furnishings, free wifi, and convenient breakfast every morning. This Hampton was right near the railroad tracks, frequent trains and trolleys passing between 5am and 12 midnight. In addition the gates were constantly opening & closing and making more noise. Also, the air conditioners are wall mounted... More

We flew into and out of San Diego for a vacation in Southern California. This hotel was the perfect location for ease of airport and car rental shuttles, as well as close enough to everything downtown to allow walking or trolley rides to attractions. Close to waterfront, which was a treat as well. Rooms were comfortable and met the usual... More

This hotel is right across the street from the waterfront, where you can go on a nice run in the morning, or walk over to the Midway and beyond. The lobby is modern and beautiful, and there is fresh tea/coffee/ice water available all day long. Fresh cookies are available mid afternoon. The breakfast is excellent with many hot and cold...

What a great place to stay while in San Diego. Last minute, late night check in and they accommodated us quickly. Great friendly staff especially the morning staff. Grumpy morning travelers, or is it just me in the morning?, will meet with friendly helpful employees, like Armondo, who kept the carafes full with delicious fresh coffee, I recommend the Robust,...

We stayed over Thanksgiving weekend. The hotel is about 2 blocks from the harbor, near where most of the sightseeing boats depart, across from the Maritime Museum. Easy walk to many restaurants. If the shuttle isn't busy, they will take you anywhere within 2 miles, so Gaslamp is easily accessible. Train station is right behind the hotel, so it's super... More

nice location; friendly staff; maid didn't replace towels but front desk/housekeeping responded well. HI just doesn't do scrambled eggs well, but without bacon I couldn't continue; breakfast is like other HI's, except totally overcrowded -- seemed like 90 in a room built for 40. OK stay but not totally living up to the potential that is San Diego.
