Our friends were camping at Camp Pendleton over Labor Day weekend. We had no desire to camp in the heat wave Southern California was experiencing, so we booked a one bedroom suite at the Hampton. The property is about 2 miles from the San Onofre/Camp Pendleton beaches.
We arrived around 3:30pm (we had just left Pala Casino earlier that day). The ladies at the front counter were very nice. Originally, they put us in a room on the second floor, but it did not have a balcony and it faced the 405. We went back down and they were able to move us to room 214, also a one bedroom suite, but it was considered an upgrade, as it was considered an "executive suite". It was quite nice and it had a balcony that looked over the golf course.
The beds were typical Hampton comfy. There was a wet bar that included a microwave and a fridge. We did not use the microwave, and the fridge - well it FROZE everything we put in it. frozen waters, frozen limes, frozen grapes, frozen OJ. Not a big deal as far as we were concerned. The bathroom sink was next to the wetbar, in the bedroom area. The toilet and the basic size tub/shower combo were separated by a door. Everything was very clean, but the tub isn't exactly a bubble bath tub. BUT - we were staying there in order to be with our friends at the CP campground during the day. It was very nice to come home after a long day in the sun, smelling all sea salty and campfirey, and take a nice COLD shower. The weather was sooo hot over the weekend.
We slept in an A/C room whilst our friends were sweating it out in tents and campers. Truly, one of our better plans!
We ate breakfast two of the mornings. Standard brekky fair - eggs, bacon, ham, toast, etc. Hay it is good and it is FREE.
We told the housekeeper each day that we did not need them to service the room (still tipping $5 of course). We didn't see the point as we weren't there except for sleepy hours.
We will definitely stay here again. In fact, I think we will stay here at the end of September for a birthday party that is being held at the irish pub two blocks away.
Well done again Hampton Inn!
