This Hampton Inn is one of the better ones we've stayed in. The staff is knowledgeable about surrounding areas to explore on foot. The rooms are well maintained and comfortable, with the usual amenities one would expect to find at a Hampton Inn. Mind you that this hotel is adjacent to RR crossings, which use the trolley system, and the... More

First off all the Hampton Inns are awesome. They have complimentary breakfast every morning which is really awesome! You could save time and money with that. Plus the location in downtown San Diego is so close and convenient to many awesome attractions! If you're coming to San Diego make sure you stay at the Hampton Inn

On the red carpet outside the entrance it reade "We love to have you here." This was indeed the feeling I had throughout my 4-night-stay during a meeting at the SC Convention Center. Everyone at the Hampton was friendly, helpful, and smiled easily. The breakfast was unusually varied and included the cut-up fresh fruit, home made porridge with nuts and... More

I was part of the DV program of the US Navy, and needed to stay the night before and after my trip out to the USS Carl Vinson out at sea(COOL STUFF!). This hotel is close to the airport, little Italy(GREAT EATS) and the naval air station - north island. The staff is first rate, and location was spot on.

What a great location for exploring Downtown San Diego. We arrived an hour early and our room was not ready. They allowed us to leave our car and we took a nice walk along the waterfront to the Maritime Museum area. It was Fleet week so there was lots of activity. The park directly across the street has a water... More
