With no less than 5 active sets of railway tracks, used by 3 different rail companies a quiet stay and quality sleep are not in the cards at this location. They even supply ear plugs on your bed side table. I won't stay here again and I do not suggest you do either!

Just back from a 2 night stay and had a wonderful time! We go to SD quite often but this was our first time at this hotel. The location was awesome, trolley right behind the hotel. Little Italy a couple of blocks away. We were given room 403 which had view of ocean, new park and a side window overlooking... More

No one warns you of all day and night train noise for a very expensive room. The room had bathroom drips and leaks that should have been obvious to staff each day during cleaning. Between faucet drips and train noise it was a long night of little sleep. Not my usual Hampton Inn experience and it is one of the... More

Great staff and big rooms. Delicious breakfast with a much broader selection than most. Conveniently located in the heart of San Diego with a great view of the bay. Very happy overall with my stay. I was surprised when I walked into my nice sixth floor room to find two sets of good quality earplugs in nice plastic sealed bags.... More

No complains but highly priced. Service, sleep quality, location: Very good Value: over priced Wash rooms: no exhaust fan Breakfast is excellent Parking: spot is too small not disturbed by the main road. Rear rooms are close to train track (Trolly)

We stayed here for seven days while my husband was here on business. The staff throughout the entire hotel were very friendly and outgoing. The breakfast was ready on time every day, that is also refreshing. Our room was very outdated, no microwave, however, when I asked the front desk for one the man delivering me the microwave beat me... More

The Hampton Inn on the Pacific Highway on the edge of downtown San Diego is a comfortable hotel with a very nice breakfast room providing a great assortment to cover every taste. The staff could not have been more accommodating, and we particularly enjoyed the van service that took us to restaurants, Balboa Park and the airport. The room was... More

I stayed at the Hampton Inn Downtown for 4 days - Aug, 2014 - this is my 3-4th time staying here. They have renovated the lobby since my last stay and it is really pretty - very glamorous looking! The location and service are both wonderful. The staff and management go out of their way to make sure you are... More

Had great time in San Diego. Hampton Inn is a warm and welcoming hotel. The staff was friendly and offered recommendations for dining. However, one restaurant recommended, the Indigo Grill was not good. I gave the receptionist my review of the restaurant with caution about recommending the place. Hampton Inn is only two blocks from Little Italy, where there are... More
