Rooms were nice and clean. Staff was great. Breakfast buffet was neatly setup and food was good. Elevator is a little slow though. Pool and hot tub were great. Has a nice little shop within walking distance to pick up snacks and drinks. Made things really easy.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Enjoyed the well appointed room, friendly staff. Recommend this venue, centrally located, near WalMart, Kohls and supermarkets, restaurants. Exercise room is excellent and accommodating. Breakfast is ample and fresh. Variety of seasonable fruits, cereals and oatmeal, eggs. Near local colleges and university.

Stayed 2 nights for a wedding in San Marcos. This hotel was nice and very convenient for the occasion. Staff was helpful and courteous. No complaints, and I'd stay again if I needed to be in the area.

The staff is friendly and helpful, however the hotel is dated and the breakfast disappointing. We did not eat at the hotel because the breakfast area was a disaster and the selections weak. In my opinion it was not up to the quality of other Hampton Inns.

Staff/s are very professional, accommodating & pleasant. Complimentary Continental Breakfast plus point. High tech key card room I'm lovin' it. Cardio room or mini gym fair enough. Pool area is very clean.

It is good to know, as someone who is not a frequent traveler, to notice how caring the support staff of Hampton is. I was contacted by the GM prior to arriving and helped get things rolling. That is what I called good service.

Rooms are always clean and well maintained. Beds are comfortable...need new pillows though or bring your own. Well equiped with microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer & coffee maker, plus free coffee in the lobby 24/7. Breakfast selections include hot/cold cereal, pastries/breads, fresh waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt & small selection of hot egg/meat items...if you can't find something here, you aren't hungry!

We picked this hotel due to it's proximity to San Diego Safari Zoo. We found it to be very close to many other San Diego Attractions as well. Also there was an abundance of shops and restaurants near by. The hotel itself had a cozy feel to it and was furnished nicely, but what really made this place sparkle was...

I attended a destination wedding. The Hampton was an alternative to the wedding party hotel. I am so glad we stayed here. Better parking, great staff, quieter, and a better location than the higher priced "suite hotel" the others booked. And we had the same perks like breakfast and in room microwave & refrigerator.

This Hampton Inn was the perfect jumping-off location for our weekend trip to see desert wildflowers in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Joshua Tree National Park. The hotel is convenient to I-5, I-15 and smaller state highways. Typical of Hampton Inns, it is clean, comfortable and has a friendly, accommodating staff. We really appreciated the list of local restaurants and...
