“Great Family Hotel...thin walls.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Love the location, 5 mins from Sea World and about 10 mins from San Diego Zoo and 10 mins from the airport. Staff was helpful, we had an issue with our room upon checking in and but was immediately replaced. Breakfast was perfect for the us and kids. 24hour Starbucks coffee and bananas was EXCELLENT.

I have two issues...THIN WALLS/Ceiling and difficult to park at night. I can hear people walking on the floor above us and our room next to us which was annoying at 7am if you want an extra hour of sleep. Parking was difficult if you come in at around 10pm. However, the 2 queen bed room was huge and clean.

Overall, we had a great time in San Diego and there were more pros than cons in this Hampton Inn. I would consider coming back again.

Room Tip: If you are light sleeper, check in on the top floor.

The staff are fantasic especially "Maegen Ibanez" the Front Office Supervisor and "Amber" (last name unknown).First of all when my wife and I were booking my rooms on Priceline.com and had questions about 1room needing to be wheelchair accessable and the need for a roll-in shower we were transfered to the hotel front desk and thats when we were introduced to Amber who promptly answered all our questions and offered us a free roll-away bed so my son could stay in the same room with me. Amber did a great job for my wife and myself so well that all people in wheelchairs would apreciate!Then when a maid had mistakenly thrown away a bag that she thought was trash and in reality there was a zippo lighter in a small case in the bag. "Maegen Ibanez" when hearing of this and that my friend of 35years had gone through all the dumpsters and trash in and outside of the hotel and could not retrieve the gift I had got for my son's graduation from Marine Bootcamp, she asured me that by the time I got back from dinner she would have the situation taken care of and that she would make it right. I came back from dinner and just as I came through the front door there was "Maegen Ibanez" with a giant smile and the exact zippo lighter I had purchased from the Marine Corps Base for my son. What I found out was that she had gone to the base and purchased a new one just like the one that had been lost. I could go on about how clean the rooms are and that the breakfast is good and that the cookies that are baked daily are fantastic but I have to say "Maegen Ibanez" made my year and helped make a very special event even that much more special. I thought that kind of customer service was dead and gone in todays society but "Meagen Ibanez" made me a believer, Thanks Maegen.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask...anything.

Breakfast is good. Location is not so good. Parking is bad since they do not have enough spaces for the number of units, and the spaces are narrow , even moreso when most are driving SUVs or trucks. I generally prefer to stay at Hampton Inns, but this one is quite "iffy".

Room Tip: A top floor room with a pool view are best and close to the breakfast area. Rooms with high numbers...

Was very nice, clean, convenient. Very spread out so room at far end was quite a distance from the lobby. Anyone with difficulty walking should ask for a room near the lobby.

It's much like any other Hampton Inn - nice rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, very basic breakfast - at pretty reasonable rates. It's a pretty handy location - just a few minutes to the airport, Sea World or Old Town, & not far from anything. But it's not walking distance to anything, & you wouldn't want to walk around this neighborhood either. It's pretty seedy, and the nearest business are liquor stores, adult toy stores & window tinting shops. But it was cheap for San Diego so a pretty decent value.

Room Tip: Try to get interior rooms away from the freeway. The pool can get a little noisy, but really only in...

This is a great hotel--definately at the upper end of Hampton properties. While it's located in a very low end neighborhood--next to 2 "all nude reviews"--you never will notice once in the hotel with it's center courtyard and pool. Balconies and decks to enjoy the weather.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard.
