We stayed at Harbour Lights on our recent cross-country trip in June 2015. I was a little worried about the location, size of the room, and noise since the resort is located in the Gaslamp Quarter, but everything was great. The resort staff was helpful and enjoyed the central location and access to great restaurants. We visited the San Diego... More

In the midst of the Gaslamp District, you have access to every kind of restaurant, nightlife, and entertainment possible. Harbour Lights is comfortable, with friendly staff and a full kitchen in each room if you'd rather stay in. We were on the back side of the building so noise was not a problem although there were foam ear plugs on... More

My husband and I stayed there in July of 2014 and will be returning to Harbour Lights the end of July 2015 to visit our son in the Navy who is stationed at the Navy base in Coronado. Great location, in the heart of everything easy to walk everywhere downtown. Parking is expensive, however it is California and not Florida.... More

If you are looking for a loud, partying vacation this is your place. We liked it for a couple of nights but it got old fast for us. The room was upscale and decorated very chic. The bed was very comfortable but to get a good nights sleep you needed sound cancelling ear plugs - the ones they provided were... More

This was the best place we stayed during a 3 week tour of the West Coast of USA. From the moment we arrived we were extremely well treated by all staff.

We are Wyndham vacation gold members and have stayed at many of the W resorts. This was one of our favorites. It was the first time we had a studio size, but it was plenty spacious for the two of us. The kitchen is small, but we were just making breakfasts, and it did have a full size refrigerator. No... More

This is my second stay here and I love the resort. The service is awesome and you can't beat the location. The only complaint is parking and valet pricing keeps going up at $32 a park. You can park on the street over night for free if you can find a spot. Would definitely come back!

Great Location, friendly, very helpful staff and concierge. These are more self serviced suites rather than full service hotel, fine with us. Nice mini kitchen facilities. Right at the start of the Gaslamp District. You can walk to quite a few places from here. Free laundry downstairs, great new machines, and a pretty solid gym. Only "complaint" is the high... More
