I had great experience staying for two nights. Excellent location and friendly staffs also helpful. If you want to stay in hotel at downtown. This the best bet. Everything is within walking distance. Very near to airport as well.

Hotel is well situated, directly at the highway/freeway entrance (great for trips to Sea World or shopping at Premium Outlet Las Americas ;-). 10min to the water with restaurants and the USS Midway Carrier to look at. Room was very nice, only annoying thing was the toilet which refilled every 1-2 hours. This is annoying specially during nighttime. Free Wifi.... More

Went on vacation with my wife to San Diego and area this month. Stayed at the Four Points. Room is extremely small. You practicly have the bathroom in your sleeping area. Paper thin walls and you can hear everything around you. Service was terrible. The staff claimed that they were super busy, like that is my problem. I just ended... More

I stayed here for a conference. I had booked late so all the conference hotels were sold out. The location of this hotel is ok, depending on where you need to be or whether you have a car and don't mind driving. It's off the highway, fairly close to the airport and not far from little Italy. It's about an... More

First of all, the check in process was very easy and quick... maybe too quick because when I tried to get into my room, the latch was in place. Odd right?? That is a latch that is only locked from the INSIDE. I called the front desk to let them know what was going on. They said they would call... More

We needed a last-minute meeting room, and the hotel was very accommodating and communicative. The rooms were clean and spacious enough. The hotel was within walking distance of Little Italy, which had many good restaurants. It is also about 2 miles from the Zoo and some museums, which is walking distance for some people. My biggest complaint is that the... More

It was nice to stay in this location for a couple of nights. The hotel has a shuttle to and from the airport, and it is in walking distance to Petco Park and the good eateries of Little Italy. It is also close enough to the trolley. When I say walking distance, I do not mean it is across the... More

I have just checked in at 12:20 am to find that my only options for parking are to pay $30 for valet or you must find street parking alone in the middle of the night. There are no safe options for self parking. And it's not just right outside the street either. It's up two streets, take a right, go... More

My stay at this location was less that satisfactory. After flying all the way from Alaska for business arriving at the Sheraton Four Points on the 13th of April, I waiting 4 hours for a room. But to start, when I called the hotel from the airport to ask for the complimentary shuttle, my colleagues and I were told we... More

I had one of the best overnight stays at this hotel. The entire staff from the valets to the front desk staff were all smiles. I even had a very pleasant trip to and from the airport on the shuttle. I never felt rushed even though I'm always in a rush. I will definitely be staying here again.
