Stayed at the hotel with friends for a long weekend. So the good include the free breakfast, good pool deck, location to the port, and near the airport without hearing the airport. The staff were very nice and always greeted us in the halls and as we passed them in the lobby. So about the noise -- I was fully... More

You cannot beat this location. Right across the street from the Maritime Museum and the water. Kid friendly park, great restaurants within a half-mile or less. Very quiet rooms! Gas Lamp Quarter within an easy walk (about a mile) and the Metro rail less than 100 feet away.

This hotel has great access to the Tram/Train. However, that is a problem. Those two items are RIGHT NEXT DOOR, and they are EXTREMELY LOUD. Plus, there is some major construction going on, so loud banging commences at 7am each day. If you can handle going to bed at midnight at getting up at 7am, then there are no issues.... More

This hotel was a great place to stay. It was convenient walking distance to the USS Midway, and there was a nice open park across the street with a splash area for children. The staff was attentive and the rooms were very nice. It is not a typical Hampton Inn (like you might see off the interstate), as it appears... More

When I say tired, I am referring to two things. First of all, I am exhausted from not having a good night sleep because the hotel is located right next to a train track. All night bells from the crossing we're going off! I think around every 10 min. And I was on the 6th floor. Why hasn't this hotel... More

This hotel had some positive features (decent breakfast, friendly staff) for the things that mattered most to me were poor. Top of the list (actually bottom of the list) was the mattress. It offered no support and I ended up sleeping on the floor half the night as my back started aching. Next up was the very noisy HVAC in... More

We stayed here one night before our cruise, and had read previous reviews complaining about the noise of the trains that run right behind the hotel. So, when we booked our room, we requested a front room as far from the tracks as possible. We were put in room 229, which faces the ocean, and arriving at our room we... More

We used the free hotel transportation from the airport to the hotel. Joseph welcomed us and provided us with information about breakfast, the pool, etc. He was polite and a great representative for the Hampton Inn. We had a room on the 6th floor at the back of the building so we were right above the railroad station. As a... More

This is a great location - close enough to walk to all the many restaurants in Little Italy, the ferry to Coronado, the trolley with convenient service to the convention center, the Maritime Museum and much more.
