If you're going to Pompeii, do yourself a favor and stay there rather than Naples. We stayed at B&B Welcome for one night in late June and had a wonderful experience. It's only a short walk from the Pompeii vesuviana station (note: this is the station for the main city, NOT the 'Pompeii Scavi' station on the Sorrento line. So if coming from Naples you'll need to take the line toward Poggiomarino). The rooms are simple but quite spacious, and Rosaria and her family are very charming. They are all born and raised in Pompeii, so you will have a very authentic Campania experience. Breakfast was full of homemade back goods and nice Italian meats, and you sit outside in a cozy courtyard. Plus, Rosaria gave us some of her homemade limoncello. Yum! The walk to the ruins was only about 10-15 minutes, and it's on the less-crowded, less touristy side so it's very easy to get in. Finally, when leaving Rosaria's son, Salvadore, kindly gave us a ride to the Scavi station so that we could continue our journey to Sorrento.
The only negative I can really think of is that the hotel is on Pompeii's busiest road, so there is quite a bit of car traffic all night. If you have earplugs you might want to wear them, although things die down late at night.
