Attended a conference in SD. Needed a hotel nearby as the conference hotel was booked. The Hilton org referred us here with special rate etc etc etc. Big mistake. Every day we had an issue from broken refrigerator , to shattered item in bathroom and lots of noise from other guests. They were caring, accommodating but not for us. Breakfast...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 31 December 2016

I've stayed at Hampton Inn across the country, and for their classification, they are consistently clean, well-run, quiet, excellent amenities (towels, AC/heat, wifi, bed, furnishings, so on) and a great value. The personnel are also very friendly and efficient. I paid $134 for one week night. This location was no different. The hotel is in Little Italy in San Diego,...

The hotel is well located, just in front of the waterfront park, walk away from USS Midway and 5 min from Gaslamp Quarter by car. There is a parking lot just under the building. Breakfast is a little bit confused, but worth well. The biggest issue is a railroad just behind the hotel, in the left corner. It is impossible...

I had occasion to do some business at the Naval Station and needed a location close to the base but convenient to the downtown area. This hotel is located 1 block from the trolley system which gave me access to everywhere I needed to go. The hotel facilities were top notch including a welcome home cocktail hour with drinks and...

I do not understand the comments about this Hampton being noisy. Our room was right on PCH for the two nights here and we never heard any noise whatsoever...inside or outside. Great staff, especially Sean. He always greeted us on our returns during the day with a smiling face and a warm welcome back. Truly a delight. Rooms were typical...

We chose this hotel solely on the fact that it offered shuttle from airport and to the cruise terminal. The hotel was a little noisy for our taste, but most of the noise came from other rude guests that stayed up laughing and talking loud till 2am. There was also a bachelorette party across from my daughters room that got...

We ended up in San Diego 13 hours before our scheduled check-in due to an emergency visit to the hospital. After 8 hours in the ER we were discharged at 2:30AM... Luckily Matt the night manager was on duty and let us check into our room early. It was a very stressful night and it was great to finally get...

We stayed in room 513. When I made this reservation I was concerned that it may be too close to the train and trolley tracks, and while it was close, and you could hear some noise, it wasn't bad and it didn't wake us up. The hotels location is really great, being close to Little Italy and its many restaurants,...
