Convenient to airport, cruiseport, Little Italy, waterfront attractions, trolley and bus stations. When we arrived they had lost track of our need for an accessible room but worked hard to make that right, searching nearby hotels and finally giving discount and moving us for the second night. The bonus was that the second night was in the front with a...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 November 2016

There are lots of choices when it comes to hotels in San Diego. I booked this because: 1) I got a great rate of $119 per night on the Hilton website. 2) Breakfast is included in the room rate. 3) Overnight parking is only $20, I did my homework on parking in San Diego and most other hotels in the...

I have stayed at the hotel several times on my way to or way back from a health resort in Tecate, Mexico. A shuttle is provided from the airport (runs every half hour) and the hotel itself is a typical Hampton Inn. It is comfortable and clean, however as is often the case with Hampton Inns the AC/Heat isn't as...

My stays are usually for business in San Diego. The location of this hotel is very convenient to the airport. It is fairly close to Little Italy but most restaurants in any direction are a long walk away. There is a Jack in the Box restaurant next to the hotel. The hotel is across the street from the art deco...

Clean room and comfortable bed but with room facing Pacific highway it is not quiet. We did however have our earplugs which is a must in these rooms. Next time we will try for an interior room if available.

The hotel is near the waterfront, but very close to train tracks and new construction. The free breakfast was adequate: what we expected at a Hampton inn. The hotel does provide shuttle transportation to/from the airport and to the cruise terminal. The hotel staff is friendly and courteous, ready to help with any questions or issues. Easy walk to the...

This is a nice, well kept, reasonable priced hotel, just what you'd expect from a Hampton. There is a free shuttle to the airport, and they accommodated my request to pick me up the night before at the rental car drop off. There's a free breakfast, and a minimal grab and go bag if you have a really early flight...

This hotel is in a central location making many popular tourists spots very close. The parking and free hot breakfast are the best. The rooms could be more accommodating. No microwaves, no kitchens, no tubs, very little space. This is not a kid friendly hotel, as families are not accommodated. We had to get two rooms as they just did...
