Hampton Inn San Diego - Downtown

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 January 2014

We were very worried about this hotel as we didn't read any reviews before we booked, and the whole train noise thing was a bit scary but how pleasantly surprised we were! We were 5 rooms back from the train line and while you could hear them ever so slightly while you were awake, they certainly did not disturb us at all during the night. Our room was a bit on the small side, but you get that when you are a family of five but the staff were great, the complimentary breakfast was great, it was really well priced and in a pretty good location, so how could you complain!

Thank you Hampton Inn San Diego Hampton Inn. I took my wife and daugher for a 4 day trip and loved the hotel. Shuttle picked us up at the airport and took us to hotel. I felt bad as I overheard a few people at the airport terminal say they had been waitng to get to their hotel for over an hour....Thank you Hampton for being quick!!! Check in was great, what a quick and seemless process. Room was spacious and clean, housekeeping was great at helping straightening out our room daily. Lobby was ultra modern and hip. Breakfast was great, fantastic breakfast hosts! Chuck & Maria , van dirviers, were fanastic, helped us get to and from airport, and seaport village. What a great location along the harbor! Again, thank you for a great trip.

Sincerly,
Sean

We are staying in the Hampton inn san Diego, wow it's noisy, the train sirens sound every 3 minutes up to 00:30 and start again at 3:00am. The noise of the train feels like it's inside our room.
Decor is ok, compfy beds, soft sheets, ample storage space, shower is good, lighting in bathroom is great.
Breakfast was good, good variety, but on disposable plates, cups and cutlery, very strange.
It's ok for a night or 2 or you are a sound sleeper.

Dear "Gemski D', I am sorry that your visit with us has not been great in part due to the noise from train lines that run behind us. As a senior contributor to this site we appreciate your feedback. I am also sorry that you found our usage of disposable silverware strange, we are using the Hampton Inn Standard. Thank you for your visit, and perhaps we will see you in your next visit.

Everything great except the noisy room heat/air conditioning unit. Staff very accommodating and gracious. Close to railroad track and rail crossings make noise most of the night but still got a good nights sleep.

Great value for money in a great location. Staff were really helpful - especially the shuttle service. Just call when you arrive at the airport and they will come and get you - it takes about 10 minutes to get to the hotel.
