The breakfast was excellent with wide range of healthy choices. It was well set up and organized. Things are done in well mannered and in order. We never experience awkward situation. It was all...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 January 2017

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,...

I've almost never stayed at a Hampton Inn and not been happy with cleanliness or service. It's a dependable chain of hotels and I always use whenever possible. This place is ideal for walking to Seaport Village and sightseeing. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance and gas lamp district is less than a mile away. Great location with lots to...

I made the reservation to this hotel on my points/rewards as a Hilton honors gold member. Upon checkout they charged me $600 dollars on my card which my spouse caught since he was checking out at the reception. Then the front desk lady took the bill to the supervisor who after an hour came out and apologized for charging for...

Fantastic hotel! I would definitely stay again the only thing that was a slight setback is that the shuttle doesn't take you to the zoo or SeaWorld so I had to rent a car. Otherwise everything about this hotel is fantastic!

We stayed at the Hampton for nine nights, and each day after sight-seeing, we looked forward to returning to the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The complementary breakfasts were outstanding -- with a variety of food and well prepared. The hotel location is perfect -- a block from the Bay and the Maritime Museum, and easy walking distance...

We are Hampton Inn regulars, all over the US and several countries. After dozens and dozens of stays, this one goes near the bottom of the list. (We have only claimed the 100% refund once.)

Good evening Mary! I'm so sorry to hear that your stay was so full of challenges. This is not the typical experience our guests receive. Downtown San Diego can be noisy especially since the trains do run right downtown. I hope you have a wonderful summer. Sincerely, Mark Manis General Manger

Nice property, but very noisy. Between construction and the metro and freight trains, sleeping is difficult. Trains run all night right next to the hotel. Parking is limited and if you come back at night, you might not find a spot.

Thank you for your feedback. We greatly apologize about the experience with the downtown noise that you had. We are in a downtown quiet zone but unfortunately the train will honk their horn if a pedestrian is walking across the tracks. We do hope you would consider us in the future.
