“Definately worth staying here!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

I've had good experiences with Hampton Inn in the past, and due to a last minute change in travel plans we needed a place to stay near San Diego for a couple nights. We were not disappointed!

THE GOOD:
Staff:
-Staff was friendly, quick to respond to questions and needs.

Room:
-The room was spacious and well decorated.
-Bed was comfortable
-Bathroom was well stocked and not bland and drab.
-Lots of space to store our luggage/clothes.
-Room was MOSTLY clean (Will detail otherwise later)

General:
-Pool was nice, but not heated
-20 minutes from most everything we were doing (SD Zoo, downtown, etc)


THE BAD:

Staff:
-Housekeeping needs to tighten the leash on some of their people. They apparently think they can do a lackadaisical job and get away with it.

The Room:
-The room had not been vacuumed after the last guest departed
-Dresser drawers had debris (crumbs, makeup pencils, etc) still in them from previous guest(s)
-Bathroom sink had what looked like a small pube hair in it
-One of the phones was sticky beyond belief

General:
-Internet was slow. Painfully slow. I'd almost equate it to dial up.
-While I enjoyed the bed, my wife thought it was a bit soft.

THE OTHER:
-While the room issues were listed under BAD, the hotel staff took note immediately and made sure everything was taken care of. They also comp'd the first night for the problems. Every other aspect of the hotel, cleaning wise, that I could see was excellent. Mine may have been an isolated incident.


I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I was in the SD area and needed a room

Room Tip: High floor, away from elevator, but that's pretty much true everywhere.

Clean hotel and one the best deals in San Diego with complimentary breakfast, parking and internet. 24 hour complimentary coffee is a plus if you love coffee. The hotel is not far from San Diego's main attractions.

I recommend this hotel and agree with the good ratings it gets on Tripadvisor which is why we booked it in the first place. It was very quiet and great value. The lobby and breakfast area are kept very clean and are comfortable. There are free newspapers and a TV in the breakfast area. The breakfast included cereal, fruit, waffles, muffins, bagel, eggs, and bacon or sausage- a lot of selection. The rooms are nice and clean, a little dated in decoration but not old or run down. The beds are really, really comfortable. There is free Wi-Fi. The front desk and cleaning staff were excellent. Lots of parking and it is free and safe. We stayed for 4 nights and had no issues. The room had everything you would expect-hairdryer, iron, fridge, lots of towels. The commute into San Diego was easy and we got to all the tourist attractions quickly and with little traffic. Great place to stay with a family and kids or on business. My one complaint is they didn't have a hot tub/ whirlpool spa. The outdoor pool is nice but a hot tub would have been nice to warm up in. San Diego is a great city to visit. The people are very friendly and there is so much to see and do. This was our first visit and we had a great time and will visit again.

We were close to everything in San Diego. Travel time was good to get to Balboa Park, USS Midway Museum and north to visit friends. Miramar runway is just to the north of the hotel and the marine fighters were practicing their touch and go landings in the evenings. It was kind of neat to see our flyboys in action. We were told they were getting ready to deploy so doing the extra practice. Only lasted a few hours and then quiet. Kind of neat to see them in action. Had a great time and the perfect venue for us. Staff was exceptional and always had a smile on their face. Would definitely stay again.

This is a very typical Hampton, but with exceptional front desk staff. They were extremely helpful suggesting places to eat and shop during my 4 week stay. They worked out a better price for me on the room to help same my client money (which I always try to do). As usual, I never got to use the out door pool. But I did stick a finger in the water and it was, in fact, heated to a comfortable temperature. For Harley Davidson fans, there is dealership about 200 yards down the street. They don't rent, but they have another location about 10 minutes to the west that does.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the pool. Otherwise you'll be looking at the parking lot.

I had to spend the weekend in San Diego for a business conference. The hotel location was only 15 minutes from my conference location and 25 minutes from the airport, easily found from the freeway. The price and stay were excellent. This is my third stay at this hotel and I will definitely will be back again.

This is a fine place to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, extra clean bathrooms. The breakfast very good, and provides something for everyone, even the little ones. I would definitely recommend this Hampton Inn.
