This is a very nice Wyndham timeshare property in a great location. The hotel is about a 15-20 minute walk from the harbor or the San Diego convention center. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The main drawback is that there is only a single 1-BR unit in the hotel. All of the others are studio units. Another drawback... More

We stayed for 2 nights in March, 2015. The room was great - very clean. The people were amazing and fell over themselves to let us know that they could help with anything we needed. A couple of things to know before you book, however... 1. Downtown location means very loud at times. We were on the 4th floor and... More

Thank you for writing this review. I’m happy to hear that you found your room spacious and clean. We are in the heart of the Gaslamp and you are right it can get noisy. We are a time share which does mean that we don’t have daily housekeeping but are happy to provide clean sheets, towels and other amenities upon... More

We stayed for 5 nights at Harbour Lights. Our unit was on the 5th floor facing the back. Very comfortable and quiet. We had a fair size room with a king bed and kitchenette. It was very nice to make our own breakfast, and snacks when needed. The grocery store Ralph's was a 10min walk through Gaslamp District. There's a... More

Our five night stay at the Wyndham Harbour Lights, San Diego, was delightful! The accommodations were clean, updated, and quite comfortable. Our studio room was spacious with adequate space for a five night stay for two. The small kitchenette was perfect for morning coffee and mid-afternoon or evening snacks. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful with restaurants, attractions,... More

We stayed here 4 nights on a Suncountry vacation. I am so glad we did. The staff here was awesome, like a small family. Very helpful. We never wanted for anything or any information. They were so helpful. Also, it was a short 2 blocks from the SD Trolley. At night time, we were close to all the Gaslamp restaurants... More

We were pleasantly surprised when checking into this timeshare. We booked a deluxe studio apartment that had both a king bed and queen pull out. The room was very clean and modern, with stove top and a big fridge, etc. My only dissatisfier was the shower. The water pressure is terrible! And the view was crappy, but that's minor. That...

We stayed at this hotel this past Dec 2014. It is located in the Gaslight District and near many bus lines that travel throughout the city. The only day we used a car is the day we drove up to La Jolla. Parking is expensive so if you plan to stay within the city of SD there is no need... More

Older hotel, rooms were large and comfortable but our room was on the second floor facing the street and was VERY noisey. Mentioned it to staff twice and they were very apologetic but keep us in the same room.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I apologize for the noise and not trying more to resolve this for you.
