It was a value for the cost. This Hampton is not new but they are refurbishing it. It is right off 78 in San Marcos so many of the nearby cities were easily reached. If going to Carlsbad it is 15 min away and much more reasonable in cost.

We tend to usually spend one month of each year at this locale. The location is perfect with easy access to all immediate points in north San Diego County. The staff shows constant professionalism, superb customer rapport, and exceptional and consistent high quality of service.

Very happy with the hotel and accommodations. Very good staff and room. Very happy with the room. One thing that would be nice is a place on site to grab a cooked warm bite or something cold to drink with a selection, but it was nice.

Friendly staff, and very helpful! Had a great experience visiting this Hilton property, and I am a diamond member. One of the maiin perks of why I continue to book with Hilton, their staff are very friendly and definitely know how to greet newcomers with a smile.

This is my second stay at this hotel. Great breakfast with many options. I especially appreciate the fresh fruit, including papaya! It is well maintained and clean. Rooms are spacious. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel recycles paper and plastic, which is a big plus in my book. Lovely outside pool and nice fitness room with treadmills that...

I stay at this hotel twice a year while on business in the area and have noticed a negative trend the past three stays.
