We love this hotel. It is our "go to" spot in San Diego. It is adjacent to a trolley stop, walking distance to Little Italy and seems to be priced well for a hotel in this area. The breakfast is better than most. The rooms are comfortable. We definitely will stay here again.

We stayed here because it's right downtown and by Little Italy and the cruise terminal. We had a wonderful room corner room overlooking the bay! Our room was very clean and the breakfast was pretty good. We checked in Thanksgiving and sailed on Saturday. It was our first visit to San Diego, but definitely not our last! We could walk...

My wife and I stayed at the Hampton Inn for one night to attend a concert at the Music Box. The property is conveniently located right on the waterfront, within walking distance of many great places. Rooms are modern and clean. Complimentary breakfast was great. Would definitely stay here again.

This review is based on a 3 night stay in mid November. PROS: The hotel has an excellent location and very close to many harbor attractions and the ferry to Coronado Island. It is also close to restaurants and little Italy. If you're a walker and don't mind long walks, may other attractions are only 1-2 miles away. The hotel...

We stayed here while in San Diego. The hotel was lovely, very clean; the staff was superb. It is close to the public transit, right across from the water front, close to many attractions. We chose this hotel because of my Hilton Honors membership,and would choose it again. I am unaware of the price if not using points.

Extremely well priced clean and helpful especially for the location. Complementary Internet was fast, parking was the cheapest around, the staff was extremely helpful especially with a delicate personal problem. They were extremely friendly and professional.

Excellent location for harbor venues and restaurants. Walking distance to many sites. All the amenities you really need. Enclosed parking, which kept us dry from rainy weather. Will definitely stay here again. Any problems we incurred were handled to our satisfaction by hotel management immediately.

Good place. Only issue is that there is a cargo train line behind the hotel. No trains passed during the night but they start early and they make some noise. It is a very short drive to old town, Sea World and the zoo. Also very near the gas lamp district. Lot of resturants in walking distance.
