Friendly staff, decent location next to the freeway to which you did not hear the noise from the rooms however it's a long walk to shopping and restaurants. I gave this hotel a poor rating because of the cleanliness and comfort, or shall i say lack there of. My room was not properly cleaned by anyone's standards and I will... More

I had a great stay at Four Points. I received a text message on the day of my arrival and they said my room wouldn't be ready until 3 pm and I was arriving at 8:30 am. So I spent time shopping and exploring San Diego with my son who lives there. After much time spent around town I decided... More

Close to Little Italy and in walkable distance to downtown and other tourist attractions (great farmers market every Saturday only few blocks away) Pros: -Clean rooms. -Location, location, location -Plenty of street parking (saves you at least $40/day in San Diego) -Ecobee thermostats in the rooms....

We landed late at night in San Diego. Called the Four Points and the shuttle bus picked up us at the airport. We were at the hotel in a matter of minutes. When we checked in, our room wasn't ready, but the front desk manager graciously offered us a dinner at the restaurant while housekeeping took care of the room.... More

I stayed one night while in town to attend a Chargers game. The trolley to the game was only a few blocks away. The room was decent size and the bathroom was clean and full of product. I didn't see any sign of run down conditions as others have reported. I had breakfast included in my package and they had... More

I liked it but didn't love it. It offers and owns up to everything the brand is supposed to be- basically a place to sleep for business travelers and/or people who want the hotel to sleep it and that's it. No extra amenities like room service. We "splurged" on the deluxe room for $19 more and got a top floor... More

I stayed in Four Points by Sheraton for 4 nights in November 2014. The hotel is located at a distance of about 1.1 miles from the convention center in downtown San Diego. It isn't the best neighborhood in San Diego as it wasn't very safe to walk back to the hotel at night. Another disadvantage was that they do not... More

Based on reviews I read, I wasn't expecting much. That being said, exceeded my expectations. Room was plenty big and clean (no fridge or microwave; individual coffee maker though; the plastic cups were by the coffee maker on the desk and not in the bathroom. Was I not supposed to drink the tap water? I did and feel fine). I... More
