“Beware!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Folks beware if you stay there. The hotel is nice and located in a perfect location BUT they will chase you down do do a sales pitch. We own there and they approached us 5 and I repeat 5 different times to do an owner update. That in a nutshell means they want you to spend LOTS more money with them. I already pay over $380 a month with them and they want more????

They will offer you a free "something" plus a $100 gift card. I am here to tell you it boils down to buy more points at thousands of dollars. Just ignore them and try to enjoy your trip, damn shame we as owners can't enjoy a resort w/out someone trying to pressure us!

Room Tip: Chose a room on the 6th floor or a room that is faces away from 5th ave.

Great location and super friendly staff! Many restaurants and sights to see within walking distance. We had a rental car which was convenient but costly at $30 per day. The valet's did an excellent job of our in and out travels at no extra charge.

Four friends and I stayed here for Comic Con, and it was fantastic. The room was beautiful with a kitchen complete with a fridge, freezer AND ice maker (anyone who reads my reviews knows how I am about ice availability at hotels). The location was perfect with restaurants, shops, and the mall in close proximity. And the best part was being on 5th avenue for Comic Con. The convention center is just down the street, and easy walk to and from each day. We were even able to drop off our swag in the afternoon and go back for more!

The staff was accommodating, helping us with our massive and awkwardly shaped luggage when we arrived, and storing and then helping us load our geek loot when we left. They were pleasant and made us laugh when they asked us if this was just for us. "Do you have a store?" "No, just for us." Clearly, we had accumulated way too many poster tubes, swag bags, and action figures for just five geek-ettes, but we had a laugh with the valet as he helped us load the TARDIS-like car, all incredulous that it would all make it back to Cucamonga. Again, excellent, fun, terrific staff.

The room had a king bed plus a queen-sized convertible couch. We were very comfortable as a few of us didn't even sleep there much and chose to sleep at the Con in line for one of the massive panels in Hall H. I am too old for that, so I can say that the room was very quiet and the beds, even the convertible, were perfect. The bathroom was large, and the shower functional. We had no issues with anything during our stay.

If you plan on staying the Gaslamp district for a few days, this is a terrific place to patronize. Horton Plaza is just around the corner for any mall-type needs, and the Ralphs grocery store is down the street. One of the best elements of this hotel was we didn't have to book it through Comic Con. We were able to get it almost a year in advance in anticipation of the Con while all other hotels in the district black-out that weekend and reserve their rooms to be booked through a lottery system via Comic Con. This system is terrible, so the fact that we could get such an amazing place to stay and not have to take the chance of drawing a room in Mission Valley and have to take the shuttle there and back each day, was just another example of what a great place the Wyndham Harbour Lights was. The geeks were thrilled.

The staff is wonderful. Anything you need they are on it. The rooms are very clean and furniture it up to date. Bedding was fabulous. Very comfortable. Bathrooms are big. It is in the heart of the city which is perfect for anywhere you need to travel. I was there for a convention and it was within walking distance. Less then a mile. About a 15 minute walk. I have stayed there twice already and will do so for next years convention. Our room was #310 that was over looking 5th ave with a small balcony. Noise at night was at a minimal. Keep in mind we were there at a very busy time so I would assume there is even less noise any other time. Jessica at the front desk was a doll along with the rest of the employees. I highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed here for a conference at the convention center and had a great experience. Everyone was very nice and helpful, and the room was huge. It had everything I needed, and the bed was comfortable. You couldn't ask for a better location. A great stay.

Most of the units in this resort are studios (hotel style), and I believe there is 1-1bdrm unit. We were able to get two studio units adjacent to each other to accommodate the family - me, my husband, 1-1/2yr old daughter and my mother took the second unit. The resort itself was clean, the concierge were VERY helpful. We did have a leak in the bathroom that the staff was unable to fix, though they did make every effort to do so in an expeditious manner. I'm just happy the leak occurred closer to the end of our trip, otherwise we'd have had to change rooms or something. This hotel lived up to the Wyndham standards for sure.

This hotel is located in the heart of the GasLamp district which is awesome for night time entertainment, restaurants so you'll have your choice of restaurants and bars/clubs to go to. If you're looking for things to do in the daytime this hotel was conveniently located a few blocks away from the light rail system and bus system. Absolutely no need to rent a car, we just walked down the street and were able to get to all the popular attractions - San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park., Coronado Island. It was a great trip as there are lots to do and the location of the hotel afforded us that.

This hotel is in a great location in the middle of San Diego to base a vacation out of. It is located in the GasLamp district..one minute outside in the evening will tell you how the district got its name.

Plenty of things to see and do just within walking distance of the hotel. A more than ample supply of food venues to choose from at just as many restaurants.

There is a mall just couple of blocks away from the hotel in case you forgot something, also a movie theatre in the mall for the slightest of chances of a rain day here.

The room was more than adequate in size and up to date. There is public parking in rear of the hotel, I didn't need a car so I don't know the price structure.

However this parking lot is used by many who come to party and revel at the many locales near the hotel, so if you have a rear face room it may be a bit noisy come closing time..

I was able to use mass transit bus and tram to wherever I needed to go around town if I did not walk. Public buses are a bargain.

Take the train to Oceanside if you have time to see the Wyndham there

Room Tip: Avoid the parking lot side during weekends if some slight noise may bother from night club goers
