Very pleased with our stay and we found the room to be clean, quiet and located near a freeway for easy access to our next destination. I would recommend this hotel for all the above reasons (including easy check in).

We stayed here prior to visiting the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. It is in a great location for that; it only took us 15 minutes to get there. Like all Hampton Inns, it was clean and comfortable, the staff was amazing, and the breakfast tasty. The staff were able to recommend some nearby restaurants for dinner (there are a... More

The price and location, and the fact that hotels closer to Legoland were sold out caused us to choose this hotel. It was a good choice too, because the location was convenient, and it is a quality hotel. It is very clean, and the beds are comfortable.

Very pleasant staff. Rooms seem upgraded and quality materials. Excellent swimming poll allowed us and family to spend an exciting afternoon. Breakfast was Hampton's usual high grade. Top floor - no noise!

The room, bathroom, and the grab and go breakfast is great. I've stayed at this location a few times, its quiet, clean, and dependable. Staff are friendly, and helpful. There are great restaurants at the next exit; Phil's BBQ and Sushi Huku are good. Shopping is close if you need some snacks in your room.
