We stayed at the Harbour Lights for nights, Dec. 14-18. Really a nice time! The clerk staff was very nice. Answered all questions! We were on a studio--there are 54 in the hotel. The concierge (Sierra) was superb! She really made us fell welcome! Many "perks" for the restaurants (including free-bees!), tours, and shows! Matt Diamond gave Wyndham owners a... More

During the day they had great lemonade and popcorn! The rooms were large and very clean and inviting! We loved the king sized bed. The only downside was parking. There isn't any! 30... More

There were brownies when we checked in and they were delicious. Never saw those again, but still remember them. We stayed at this resort as part of our time share, from Sunday to Friday.

My wife and I recently stayed at this condo hotel for 4 nights. We needed a central location near to the conference centre (I was attending an event) and near to transportation, shops and restaurants. It fitted the bill perfectly being smack bang in the middle of the Gaslight area. Given the very reasonable room rates, our expectations were modest.... More

This location is perfect - close to a bus line, right around the corner from an Old Town Trolley stop, walking distance to numerous bars and restaurants and even Petco Park, the convention center, and Seaport Village. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. One front desk clerk said if they receive anything less than an 8 out of 10... More

I’m so glad that you enjoy the convenient downtown location. There is so much to see and do in downtown San Diego it sounds like you enjoyed them all! The resort location is in the heart of the Gaslamp and can get noisy with all of the nightlife which is why we provide ear plugs. Thank you for letting us... More

Well run timeshare in the heart of the GasLamp district - we walked everywhere...The room was spotlessly clean, the owner update lasted the "right" amount of time and the bed was comfy. We look forward to coming back!

Thank you for the time that you took to review Wyndham Harbour Lights in beautiful downtown San Diego. The studios do offer amenities that are not common in most hotels.

I can't add what others haven't already said but this place is too good not to review. The hotel is located on what I would describe as an edge of the Gaslamp district. A good, walkable location to just about anywhere in Downtown San Diego. Upon arrival, I was greeted by friendly staff and clean rooms. Carol at the front... More

What can I add that others haven't said? We chose this hotel because of its apparent central position and we got it right! No complaints at all. We requested a room at the back of the hotel and, although the view was non-existent, it was much quieter. The concierge was very helpful even to the point of joking with us,... More
