I stayed here for one night as I was visiting with my Goddaughters and my family friend. The hotel staff was great and very friendly and helpful. Rooms were great, comfortable beds. Great breakfast area, very clean and lots of choices. Swimming pool area was very nice, the kids loved it! Had to pry the kids from the hotel and left right at check out time. Would highly reccommend

We stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Poway, CA for two nights in October, while visiting family nearby. The hotel is extremely clean, and the beds are the most comfortable we have ever experienced (and we've stayed in many hotels). The hotel was very quiet and everything was well-maintained. The free wireless internet was great! We only had the complimentary breakfast one morning of the two and we were not impressed. Eggs were like little rock-hard pebbles, uggggh. However, our main goal when staying at any hotel is to get a good night's sleep, in a quiet, clean hotel. The Hampton Inn and Suites in Poway fills the bill. Since it is located in an out-of-the-way industrial park area, it was not crowded at all on this particular weekend. The staff is very helpful, professional, and friendly. Our check-in was very smooth and when we inquired about the area, we were given a local map which was very helpful during our stay. The beds and bedding are HEAVENLY and we will return to this property again when visiting relatives in this area. Thank you, Hampton Inn, Poway, for a wonderful stay!

We've just stayed at this hotel for a week whilst spending time around San Diego. We wanted a value for money base rather than paying extortionate Mission Bay prices and this hotel delivered. And with free parking, internet & breakfast included.

Yes it's a bit out of the way but we were at SeaWorld in 20 mins, San Diego Waterfront in 30 mins & the Zoo Wild Animal Park in 15 mins. Restaurants were no more than 5 mins drive into Poway Centre.

And for UK reviewers I think this was described in a previous review as being on an industrial estate - by UK standards it's on a big edge of town business park. Also although the hotel was easy to find, be warned, our satnav thought it was on the opposite corner of the intersection and sent us the wrong way onto Stowe Drive but by this time we could see the hotel & just did a U turn.

Check-in was flawless, they had our pre-paid reservation (unlike the car rental company, another story) & had allocated us a room on the 2nd floor at the end of the hall so we wouldn't be distubed by guests that leave early in the morning which was greatly appreciated. Our twin room was huge with 5 ft beds, plenty of storage, cable tv with kids channels, a large bathroom with loads of undersink storage (heaven when travelling and sharing a room with your children!!) and digital controlled air conditioning which was very quiet & efficient.

The pool was large & clean, the hot tub was as a warm as a bath & towels were provided. The hotel enforced the 10pm closing which was a blessing to be honest as we were near the pool area & it did get noisy when a large extended family were in there on both Friday & Saturday nights. We probably made as much noise in the pool on other nights though!

Breakfast was from 6-10 each morning & was standard breakfast buffet fair with two choices of hot food which changed each day, and the highlight for my kids, cook your own waffles. We learnt to avoid the 7-8.30am window on weekdays as it was full of business travellers and table space tended to run out but other than that it was a good start to the day.

Despite previous reviews that this hotel was not family friendly I can assure anyone that we had our 6 & 10 yr olds with us and the hotel was absolutely fine for children. The hotel is geared towards the business traveller during the week but there were also families, couples, small groups & a very large group attending a wedding at the weekend, all of which were handled well as far as I could tell.

I only had two very very minor gripes - there was plenty of hot water but the shower had no power to it. And there was no in room OR front desk safe facilities.

Other than that, we would definitely stay here with or without children again.

Had a 1-night business stay. I arrived early and they were able to give me a room for early check-in. Room was huge, clean, and very comfortable. Huge flat screen TV was nice. Overall, a great stay.

This hotel is not friendly at all, we booked 16 rooms for softball tournaments and they never made us feel welcome. They wanted everyone in bed lights out by 10pm. They followed everyone around trying to catch you doing something wrong. Told us we had do leave the pool area at 10pm...breakfast was bad, my bathtub was clogged, this hotel is for Business people only not families. We should have been told upfron this is not a family friendly hotel and we would have gone somewhere else. Of all our tournaments stays we paid the most for this hotel and it turned out to be the worst. Even the location there is nothing around the area it is in the middle of nowhere!!!

We used the point stretcher program and booked this room for only 18,000 points. It was in a somewhat remote area outside San Diego, which is probably why it was on the point stretcher program. It was a great room about 15 minutes from the zoo. Since we had a car, it wasn't far enough out of the way to be a negative.

We decided to stay in this hotel because the reviews we read for hotels in the immediate San Diego area were unnerving. We wanted a safe, quiet, comfortable place to stay. We've stayed in other Hamptons, but this one is the cream of the crop. It's gorgeous inside and out. While it's true it doesn't have a restaurant within walking distance, there are several within a few minutes' drive. The furnishings in the room are top-notch, the beds are wonderfully comfortable, there are more outlets in the room than I've ever seen in any hotel room, the bathroom has a marble countertop and a very nice ceramic tile pattern in the tub surround, and the area is relatively quiet and appears safe. The breakfast area is very nice, and the breakfast itself is extensive and delicious - apart from the fruit salad, which didn't taste right (I imagine it's frozen and not fresh). Our only regret was that this was the first night of our week in CA, so it was all downhill from here!
