It was a value for the cost. This Hampton is not new but they are refurbishing it. It is right off 78 in San Marcos so many of the nearby cities were easily reached. If going to Carlsbad it is 15 min away and much more reasonable in cost.

We tend to usually spend one month of each year at this locale. The location is perfect with easy access to all immediate points in north San Diego County. The staff shows constant professionalism, superb customer rapport, and exceptional and consistent high quality of service.

Very happy with the hotel and accommodations. Very good staff and room. Very happy with the room. One thing that would be nice is a place on site to grab a cooked warm bite or something cold to drink with a selection, but it was nice.

This hotel was very clean. The beds were a little uncomfortable and the elevator was really slow but we would still stay there again. The workers were very nice. The breakfast had a great verity of foods.

I would choose to stay again if I revisit the area. Noise can be easily heard from outside and inside guest doors from the hall. rooms are clean. staff are nice. Hot breakfast meals are good. Pool and hot tub are clean. The lobby furniture need cleaning or be replaced.

Friendly staff, and very helpful! Had a great experience visiting this Hilton property, and I am a diamond member. One of the maiin perks of why I continue to book with Hilton, their staff are very friendly and definitely know how to greet newcomers with a smile.

I stay at this hotel twice a year while on business in the area and have noticed a negative trend the past three stays. On a recent visit my curtains were stained, the carpet was dirty, the veneer on bottom of the room door was peeling, the desk area was scratched and the club chair was not clean. The wall... More
