Nice enough room, given that there is a small kitchenette. Big windows with a view. Having said that, it was a very poor view: directly across the street are two tattoo parlors and a ghetto dollar store. We were woken at night by the sound of homeless people duking it out. This hotel is on the very edge of the... More

We drove in from Phoenix to beat the heat. Valet'ed the car and didn't take it back out until we drove home. Everything we wanted to go to -- restaurants, Balboa Park, USS Midway, Seaport -- was either walking distance or a few trolley/bus stops away. We had the studio which was bigger than we expected. Appreciated the extra room.... More

I’m so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Downtown San Diego. You are right we are in the heart of the Gaslamp with so much to see and do without having to use your car. Many guests don’t drive or rent a car since the public transportation is easily accessible. If you do use our valet services, the cost... More

The property appears to be a time-share conversion from a former hotel. Upon check-in, you are asked to visit a desk for free discount coupons. The person there asked if we were busy the next morning to hear a 90 minute presentation and receive a gift. It was my birthday weekend so I didn't commit. The property has gone Green,... More

We certainly wanted to Party in The Gaslamp, but wanted the assurance of a good nights sleep when that time of night came around. The Wyndham Harbour Lights was perfect for that and much more. At 5th & Broadway, it is just far enough down the street from all the fun and noise, yet close enough that you can be... More

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.

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
