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...

Conveniently located close to many attractions and the trolley. Clean room, nicely appointed, good breakfast, strong wifi signal, personable and helpful staff. Couple of blocks from Little Italy, short walk to the USS Midway and close to the cruise terminal. Shuttle service is provided to and from the airport and to the cruise terminal.

This was a one night stay and everything was great. The digital check-in was easy and convenient, parking was convenient, the room extremely clean and more than enough choices in the complimentary breakfast.

As usual, Hampton does not disappoint. Wonderful stay at the property overlooking the ocean facing the San Diego Maritime Museum. USS Midway is a 5 minute walk away. There's a large and modern child play area on the green space between the hotel and the pier.

This hotel is very centrally located just behind the Emberacado very close to the Maritime museum and only a few minutes walk to the Midway , whale watching trips trolley bus stop and ferry to Colorado. Behind the hotel is the tram. It was very easy to catch the tram to the Old Town. However the tram is quite noisy...

This hotel has a very good location. It is near the train station, restaurants, Little Italy, USS Midway, Seaport Village, and other sights. If you bring your car, be aware that there is a $25 charge to park in the underground parking lot. Spaces are narrow. The complementary breakfast is very good. There's lots of choices of hot and cold...

This is an older facility but well kept. The location is within walking distance of the cruise ship pier. The shuttle service was fast and friendly. The location is very near the Little Italy section of San Diego, again within walking distance, which has excellent restaurants.

Great place to stay to visit USS Midway and Maritime Museum. Easy to access ferry to Coronado and Little Italy. Great staff. We would definitely stay here again. Only drawback was having to pay for nightly parking, but think that goes with being downtown.

For the price this hotel was fine. Good location for waterfront access. Don't pay extra for a 'bay view' room. Our party was on the 5th and 3rd floor and the train crossing signals were not a noise problem. Tiny gym. This hotel could use a refresh.
