Had a reservation issue during my stay. Hotel checked me out because my room was not occupied one day. They only charged me for the day that I stayed vice my original reservation though and offered a temporary room for me to freshen up prior to my flight out.

While traveling on business in CA, our team requested a hotel close to the airport and we primarily stay at Hampton Inn properties when traveling. Our travel group recommended this hotel for convenience to the airport for an early morning flight. Terrible choice! While the hotel is located close to the airport, it was one of the noisiest places in... More

This hotel was just ok. Nothing to be awed about. Hidden entrance form the street. No street level signs. Was concerned about train noise other reviewers wrote about, but didn't experience it much. Breakfast buffet was Awful! Better to walk down the street to the Jack in the Box. Definitely not worth $200.00 per night. Best to stay outside of... More

We visited San Deigo for around a week this past July and stayed at this hotel and couldn't have been happier about it.

The hotel location and airport shuttle are ideal. I stayed there for five nights and I'm not sure if I'll stay there again, or recommend anyone else staying there.

Great hotel, really good breakfast, close to the water for long evening walks and Little Italy too. Very friendly and clean hotel, but you WILL have to wear earplugs if you can see the train tracks from your room. If you have something that plays white noise, it will also help.

Very nice hotel in convenient location. Breakfast was great with many choices. Proximity to airport and being next to train tracks meant noise was inevitable but earplugs were provided and, surprisingly, they worked fine and were not uncomfortable. Reserving room with parking package saves $2 @ day and underground garage is super convenient to hotel. Nice place!
