Stayed 4 night at this property and enjoyed most of time there. This hotel is very close to Little Italy so many nice restaurants are nearby. Room was newly renovated (clean bathroom and comfortable beds) Parking lot is very tight so be carefully when you are parking the car. Overall it was good experience and willing to go back !!

This was our 2nd time at this hotel. It is very conveniently located right by the airport, the waterfront, the Midway, Seaport Village and terrific restaurants. It is also about a block and half from the San Diego Trolley that takes you right to the Mexican border in Tijuana. As with all newly redecorated Hampton Inns, it no longer had...

Newly renovated, this property is beautiful and welcoming. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the complimentary hot breakfast is right on point, with all of the offerings available in abundance and at the correct temperature.

Thanks Ellis for helping us out. We needed an extra room and they were able to accommodate us with our request. The rooms were clean and quiet. The breakfast had fresh fruit. Great value. Ellis spent a very long time helping us process the change that we needed with the same price as the first room.

For a relaxing weekend get-away, this is the place to be. It is located across from the Star of India and a short walk to the Midway aircraft carrier. Little Italy is right behind the hotel, and access to trolley transportation is very convenient. Be sure to get a day pass so you can use it as often as you...

Nice place to stay when on business. Or a nice weekend getaway. Close to convention center. Nice walk along the waterfront. Entrance to Gas Lamp district with lots of fun restaurants. has a trolly to take you around downtown. Very good complimentary breakfast, something for everyone. Didn't try the pool but it looks like a good place to cool off....

I recently visited San Diego for a business conference at the convention center. Hotels adjacent to the convention center were twice the cost of staying at the Hampton inn. The hotel is walking distance from the trolley so the convenient location is what I loved most. Only a few stops away is the Amtrak station and other downtown attractions. There...
