Another fabulous Hampton Inn. The service, breakfast, and over hotel was great. Clean and really nice! The pool is small, but nice. Location is great, really easy to was to Gaslamp area and other local attractions.

They took good care of us during our first trip to San Diego! The courtesy shuttle driver, Ryan, was so helpful and lead us to the highlights of the city in our 2 day stay. The manager Armando and all of his staff were very friendly and the room was clean.

Very friendly staff and clean room, access WiFi easily except mid-night, nice breakfast with many choice; access to tour spots, restaurant and walking distance to the Bay. So, what do you need more with this price compare to more expensive place.

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

We stayed here for a week while my wife was attending a convention at the Hyatt. Staff is nice, usual Hampton Inn breakfast was more than adequate, complimentary shuttle to airport, green line trolley stop behind the hotel is very convenient but can be part of the problem for some if you are a sensitive sleeper. Rooms facing the east... More

Dear "nodaicrag", thank you for your extensive review of our hotel and for your business. I am really sorry that your location was not ideal with respect to the noise but also that the room AC units added to that issue. We are replacing those units on an ongoing basis as they are becoming a larger problem. Thank for mentioning... 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
