The location is great, next to a trolley stop. Great view of a park and pier. Everything you need is just a few steps away. Nice staff and offers coffee and hot chocolate all day. Parking is just 12 dlls.

This inn had extremely friendly staff that really attended to detail. The excellent hot breakfast was well done and very tasty. Housecleaning provided well delivered service. The front desk was friendly and provided thoughtful service. Smoke detector kept going off if the room was too warm even after batteries were changed, but a nice stay.

Typically as someone who frequents Hilton and is a gold member there are certain standards you expect. One is upgrade in room or at least better location. Being addressed as a loyal member an given the small perks. Instead I had to remind them. It wasn't until I left that I call as to a change at that point it... More

We woke up and decided to take a trip down to SD. No itinerary, simply a 2-day getaway. After being unable to snag a hotel using Priceine, we found this hotel using HotelTonight. This hotel is nice! Nicely updated and nice decor -- especially in the lobby. The rooms aren't quite as updated, but everything was in the room was... More

I made a reservation for two rooms at the Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown. Called and made sure that our family would be on the same floor and was assured we would be across the hall from each other. Came time to check in and they had us on the fifth floor and our second room on the sixth floor.... More

The room had 2 queen size beds, a nice desk, lots of storage and a small fridge. The room was clean, the bathroom was well appointed. The free breakfast was great. Whomever cooks the eggs... More

Dear "Mark N", thank you for you review and for your business! I want to reassure you that we do not place guests in the rooms right above the trolley line unless one of two things happen: 1 we are sold out, or two, a guest requests this. number two does not happen often, but once in a while it...

This Hampton is very clean and conveniently located! Take the advice of the other reviewers and request a room opposite of the trolly- it will make for an excellent stay. Though the furniture could benefit from an update-- this is a purely aesthetic and certainly isn't a deal breaker. This property also has clever daily riddles with small treats for... More

Everyone was really helpful and pleasant. The rooms were cleaned and well stocked. And you can't beat the location. Breakfast was good with many choices for everyone's pleasure. The breakfast room was in the front with all windows so you would see if your departure vehicle had arrived.
