Stayed at this Hampton Inn for 4 nights late Feb. Hotel is completing finishing touches on renovations. Outside does not look like typical Hampton as it is clad in yellow painted wood siding. The location is convenient but not the best area but seems typical for San Diego area. Inside areas are nice. They finished the lobby wall paper while we were there. Pool and hot tub area looked nice and heated but still did not used due to outside temps in upper 50s. Stayed in a newly renovated large King with brand new carpet (had that new carpet smell each time we went in). Room had patio, mini-fridge, microwave, nice granite counters, new popular style furniture grade vanity, new furniture, and new white bedding and pillows that all Hamptons are getting. Note that only the larger King rooms have the microwave, fridge, and patio or balcony. Housekeeping starts early in the morning and the room was always clean. Breakfast area is roomy with granite tables and counters and additional seeting just beyond in the lobby area so there was always a table to be had. Breakfast was typical Hampton and not bad for what you get- 1 hot entree each day (waffle/sausage, egg/sausage/biscuit, egg/bagel), good fresh fruit salad, whole bananas and apples, cerials, excellent coffee, yogurt, coffee cake, bagels and bread, muffins, milk, and the typical reconstituting orange/apple/cranberry juice machine. The breakfast staff always kept everything filled before running out. Hotel is very close to Old Town but I still wouldn't walk there through all the major roads in between. Other than the few restaurants in Old Town and several Mexican restaurants we found no very nice restaurants within a few miles of the hotel, mostly fast food and chains. Seems like most of the good restaurants are down in the gas lamp quarter. Would stay there again if staying in the area.
