Nice, comfy place

the hotel is in a convenient location, and the staff was friendly. I needed a crib/pack and play for my son; I called ahead to request one and it was already set up in my room when I arrived. Everything was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and the staff was prompt to replenish items as they ran out. My only criticism is the parking situation. The parking garage is rather small, with small spaces and narrow aisles. Especially challenging when there are a lot of large trucks parked in it.

Close to everything

Walked to restaurants in Little Italy and the Gaslamp district. Room was very nice with coffee and fridge. Also a great free breakfast and coffee all day in the lobby along with daily newspaper. Used the free wifi also.

Great place for SD Rock N Roll Marathon stay

We stayed here for two nights to participate in the running race. The hotel opened their breakfast specifically at 4 am for the runners and shuttled us close to the start line even though we could run/walk to the start if we wanted to. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Trolley is right behind the building so it's convenient to get to the Convention Center for Expo. Little Italy has tons of restaurants for carboloading. All in all, a fantastic spot with great value.

India Street has lots of restaurants; walk around a bit before you decide! We tried 3 places, and they were all good.

A little break

Good location as it is close to little Italy and other places to go at downtown San Diego. The Hotel is clean and the price is not bad. The only thing I didn't like is I could hear the foot steps of people above our room and also you could hear the sound of the train when it passes.

Amazing stay!

The staff was very friendly and sharp. They knew who we were right away and at every moment we crossed paths. The breakfast was delectable. The room, very cozy and clean! Id read reviews with complaints about noise from the local train keeping people up. While it did not bother us this trip, there were disposable earplugs included on our night stand. Pretty thoughtful of them. Location was great, not from from the places we wanted to see in downtown, and also just a few blocks away from the sea where you can walk to the Midway naval museum, or enjoy the old wooden ships and submarines on the way. I would absolutely come here again, one of the finest hospitality experiences I've had.

Great location and amenities for the money

My wife and I were in town for a Holiday party at a nearby, 4 star hotel. They were charging over double what the Hampton Inn was charging and they offered smaller rooms, more expensive parking, no breakfast, no Internet...everything the Hampton Inn offers as a matter of course. Our stay at the Hampton was comfortable, the rooms were clean with good climate control, the shower had excellent water pressure and the wireless Internet was top notch and complimentary. Parking was plentiful and reasonably priced. Breakfast was a huge spread (complimentary also) including eggs, biscuits and gravy, waffles, oatmeal, toast, pastries, yogurt, fruit, juice, milk, coffee...pretty much anything anyone could want to start their day. The airport is very close and the hotel is immediately adjacent to the Little Italy Trolley Station, giving you full access to the city's mass transit system. We never moved our car after parking there. The trolley and airport do make some noise, but it is not unbearable and the hotel has gone out of its way to accommodate for the small amount of noise that is detectable. There are white noise machines in the room and earplugs on the bedside table. I used neither and slept like a log. Overall, this was a great stay and I will stay there again when I'm in the area.

Trolley station next door gives full access to the city without driving and paying for parking. Little Italy is within walking distance, too.
