We enjoyed our stay at the Hampton Inn. Our check in went smoothly. We did get a spot in the garage but it was a tight one. Our room was clean and a good size. As for the trains, we knew about them from other reviews and did use the earplugs provided. The breakfast bar was well supplied with lots... More

Stayed here over the July 4th holiday. Staff was awesome and extremely helpful. We arrived early in the afternoon intending have them hold our bags but instead they checked us into our room early. Chose this hotel because of proximity to the harbor and the firework. We were not disappointed. We were able to walk across the street to a... More

The staff was very helpful. They have a shuttle to get you to the airport and back on your schedule, just let the desk know. The hotel is close to restaurants in a walkable part of town, I didn't see anything that concerned me about our safety, etc.. I read some people complained about the noise from the train, but...

This hotel is located near the San Diego airport but right behind a set of railroad tracks. The trains run 24/7 and I literally mean 24/7. Thank God, the trains dont blow their whistles but the gate bells are constantly ringing. They ring all day and all night long. The sound is so loud that they drown out the noise... More

Do not come here. The parking is terrible. We had to 1st find a spot in their garage. That was about 30 minutes. Then we had to make a determination as to whether we could fit into the spot (the same problem all the other cars were having, driving around the garage).

Dear "861tammy7" thank your taking the time to review our hotel for the members of this site. and for your patronage. I am really sorry that our parking facilities were inadequate.

The staff helped provide us with a quiet room that was perfect for us, and also with information to help us get around to the activities in the area. They checked with us each day. The breakfast was great. It is really nice to have a hot breakfast, with enough food that enables you to get through a morning of... More

Four of us stayed here when going to watch the Dbacks beat the Padres in June 2014. The hotel and room was impeccably clean, the staff was friendly and proficient, and the price was decent too. We were on the 5th floor, so any train noise was not an issue for us. If you're heading to PetCo Park, there's a... More

This Hampton Inn really stood out, head and shoulders, over all the properties of similar class in San Diego. We received warm, friendly service from both Blanca and Nic, which tells me they do a wonderful job training their staff. I was also very impressed with our room. Very comfortable and very inviting. This will be my "go to" place... More
