This was a return visit (my 6th or 7th time). Checking in was quick and efficient. The person at reception was very nice and cheerful (fun). The room is modern and clean. The work chair is wonderful. Lots of parking. Great area with many stores and restaurants very close. Right off the highway with little traffic even in rush hour.

In short - enjoyed my stay. Will return.

I have trouble walking very far and the manager got us a room that was close to the lobby and the parking lot. I was very grateful. I have been traveling for years and this was the first hotel that toke me serious when I said that I needed a room close by to everything. Everything was very neat and clean. A very nice place to stay at.

I like the sticky note on the headboard of the bed informing that the sheets and duvet are clean. I like the hard boiled eggs at breakfast. I like the 24 hour locked side door. I like the free internet and all the plugs to recharge various electronics. I like the firm beds. Also, easy access from the freeway.

We have stayed at other Hampton Inn's and this one was not my favorite due to the lack of attention to detail and professionalism. This one has nice grounds and has a gas station right next to it for convenience. I just was not impressed with the desk staff and they forgot to put a shower curtain in our bathroom. I could have resolved it if I had noticed in time but it is something you expect without having to think about. We did not have enough towels either for the amount of us staying in the room. Details...but I will give them credit for having decent coffee and the eating area was very comfortable and inviting. Jacuzzi was nice and well maintained.

Room Tip: we were on the 3rd floor and did not experience any noise but I would not get a room near the elevat...

Super clean (They wash their duvet covers between guests!). Super quiet (even when the hotel was overrun by hoards of women's college softball players). Staff was very accommodating. The pool area isn't as snazzy as it looks in the pics but it's still a great place to end a day of beer tasting in north county. The hotel is located in a decent position so that you can take a cab for about $20 to most breweries.

Hotel was perfect for our one night stay except both beds in the room sagged in the middle and made for an uncomfortable nights sleep. Breakfest choices were good and the hotel staff were friendly, helpful and efficient.
