Stayed here for 4 nights. Right next to the Trolley which will take you everywhere around the city. Uber to SeaWorld is only a couple dollars. The breakfast was great in the morning and the wifi worked decently.

Our mattress actually sloped inward causing an extremely uncomfortable night of trying to stay asleep. My husband and I were participating in the triathlon the next morning and were unable to move to another hotel on such short notice. Our room had a strong mildew smell which most likely came from the water damage and paint chips broken around the...

The location was great. Staff was friendly but unable to direct me to a good restaurant, only directions to Little Italy. A short walk to Little Italy, I found a great little pizza and wine Bar, Isola. The hotel is clean, but I would rate as average. Nothing stood out and said to me as OMG.

This hotel is a nice hotel for the price. It's very similar to other Hampton Inns in other cities. The hotel lobby and breakfast room were clean and always had coffee and fruit water waiting. The hotel room was cleaned daily and was a good size. We slept comfortably every night. Our room was on the 5th floor looking out...

This is an excellent location with a prompt airport shuttle and wonderful staff. Reasonable walking distance to AMTRAK/COASTER Tran Station and all Downtown San Diego attractions. Nice Hampton Inn standard rooms. Complimentary Breakfast Spread is better than average.
