“Not your typical Hampton Inn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This hotel is really big and not your typical Hampton Inn. The location is convenient and safe although the area does have a strip club nearby and the area is tired, it is safe. Staff was great and room was a little dated but comfortable. Problem with our room was hair dryer was weak, iron stained my clothes, and constant drip in the shower. Complained about seeing if they would take off a little for the dry cleaning and they cleared the entire night stay, no problem. It's not what we asked but it sure was a very pleasant surprise. My only complaint was how small the fitness room was, about 8' by 12', maximum capacity is about 4 people.

Convenient location right on I8, stayed here when Delta flight delay changed my plans, booked late and arrived after midnight. Front desk very helpful but the rest was poor. Room was tired and there was no power to the table sockets or table lamp. Car alarms going off in the night nearby did not help with any sleep. Departed at 6 am just as breakfast was opening, asked for a bag to throw in some takeaway and told to ask front desk. Received a sack with a bottle of water, an apple and a muffin, not what I would have chosen if I could have helped myself.

Dont judge a book by its cover, or in this case the hotel by its outside or area.
When i entered the lobby, the frst thought was , WOW, nicest Hampton inn lobby and breakfast area Ive ever encountered.
The front desk staff at check in were some of the friendliest and courteous Ive met.
Great experience, will stay here and recommend to others.

Room Tip: Request the rooms with a balcony

I really enjoyed my stay at Hampton Inn San Diego Airport/ Seaworld. The servcie is always outstanding ,the rooms are clean and very comfortable. The Staff is absolutely wonderful they make feel at home away from home. Guest Service Agent, Maxine Rivera was very helpful when I first checked in, She helped me fix a problem I had with my reservation. It is this kind of service that keeps me coming back. For me this is the ideal location since it is less than a mile from my job. Thank you for the great service.

I stayed 7 nights at the hotel. I booked the room on the Hilton website. At check out I was overcharged by $100. The staff person who I attempted to ask to fix the error was rude. She was not wearing a name tag but said she was the manager, and that her name was Megan.The housekeeping staff are really friendly and I had a nice room. It's not really a quiet place, 3-4 rooms down from me I heard someone vomiting most of the night. The location is mixed ... right off the freeway, next door to "the largest strip club in the US", close to old town but not really a safe walk.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

My husband and I stayed here with our 4 & 5 year old daughters. Our 2 queen room was big enough for us to spread out and have room for the kids to move around. Breakfast was always stocked and they had coffee all day. Front desk & all customer service was very helpful and pleasant. Pool was nice and warm even though it was a cool day. We liked that the room had a big balcony with two chairs that overlooked the pool area. Overall it was pretty quiet and we couldn't hear much noise from other rooms, but we were also there in the end of Oct, not the height of summer. It has several restaurants and stores very close by. A couple of the negatives we had were that the sink is really tall and hard for our daughters to reach, so we had to help them wash their hands every time, but I think this is standard for most Hamptons. Also, the sink area is not in with the tub and toilet, so it has no door and the wall between the beds and the sink is not a full wall, it had about a foot gap at the top, which makes the noises (sink, trying to dry hair, etc) louder to the bed area, but it wasn't really a problem for us and our needs. We would stay here again.
