It may not be a five star hotel but it has all the simple pleasures you need-continental breakfast, coffee ALL DAY LONG, newspapers, a pool and a gym. The hotel is in close proximity to grocery stores and restaurants and only a short drive from San Diego. The staff was so friendly and even helped coordinate a birthday surprise for...

Quiet Hampton Inn with convenient location. Great front desk service. Comfortable beds and free WiFi. Much prefer it to the Carlsbad location. Fewer kids and larger rooms. We have stayed here five times and will be back.

Outstanding staff on reception on arrival. Breakfast was very good, one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had, my 14 year old son was sated upon completion. Hotel is located close to everyplace we had to be and the staff was very helpful with direction since I don't have navigation in my vehicle.

Average clean hotel, small rooms. Pool closes at 9 p.m. be forewarned. Mattresses on beds are hard. Ordered a rollaway bed that took three hours to deliver. if using Hilton honors points make sure you are not double charged points as I was. Average breakfast, but hot food was cold.

The hotel was fine. I enjoyed the breakfast. The staff were all helpful. The hotel is clean and tidy. The room was smaller than I expected and the bathroom door is awkwardly designed, but other than that, no complaints.

We stayed here due to it's location to where family lives in Oceanside & Camp Pendleton and because we are Hilton Honor members. Easy access on/off interstate. Several restaurants to choose from within 1 mile area (both within walking or driving). We walked to a strip mall, just up the street (next traffic light past Hotel). Grocery, restaurant varieties, etc....
