Recent guest reviews

The location is great it was near everything we needed to be by. The complimentary breakfast was great!!!!! Breakfast was different every morning and the staff was amazing. I can’t complain about anything.

It is well located, especially if you need to get to the cruise ship terminal. They provide shuttles to the terminal as well as to the airport. Breakfast is great. The room is spacious and well equiped. I truelly recommend it

It is very loud at this hotel. There is a train crossing one block away and a fire station on the corner. I couldn’t sleep most of the night. The hotel itself is okay and the staff is very friendly

It was great! Delicious breakfast, clean room, friendly personnel

The staffs at the hotel were super friendly and very helpful. Airport shuttle service was also nice and the breakfast buffet was good!

Nice hotel close to the bay. Clean.good breakfast included.

Overall good stay. Airport shuttle was very convenient. Baggage storage was plus after checkout so we can do stuff after checkout. Hotel is nicely located close to ocean, 711 and trolley station. Make sure if you staying with kids to have sofa bed in the room. Not all room has the sofa beds.

Even though do not disturb sign was clearly hung on the door, cleaning staff knocked on our door and woke us up at 8:00 am, an hour earlier than we wanted to. Hallway noises, and air conditioner (when it shuts down) was also louder than usual, so had to turn volume up on tv to hear

My family and I enjoyed our one night here before an early morning flight. We chose this hotel for its close proximity to the airport, and 5am airport shuttle. During check in, we requested the specific time, and they wrote us down in the shuttle ledger. Everything went smoothly. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly, as was the shuttle driver. Because we left before breakfast, they provided brown bags filled with snacks, which was a very nice gesture. The room was modern and very clean. Fresh cookies were served at front desk. Great stay!!!

The little Italy train station is directly behind hotel. After several requests for a room in the front of the building I was still given a room in rear and listened to trains all night

I choose this hotel because of the convenient location. It is in front of the strolley station which I arrived at 1am from the strolley station at the airport. This hotel has excellent breakfast!

Clean hotel, great location, many things to do and easy within walking distance.

We went for 3 days and we had a great experience. The Hotel is in a good location, clean rooms, breakfast is a plus and friendly staff.

Very, very nice hotel. Next to everything. Wonderful view loved it.

Great location, the breakfast is very good, the staff are all kind and helpful.

Great experience. Location is exceptional. Near the midway and maritime museum. Train traffic is a bit much, but didn't disturb my sleep. Breakfast ok, just a typical hotel breakfast.

Really enjoyed the hotel, very clean. Good breakfast and close to all the area attractions

the only way I would ever stay here again is if I had an interior room. we have young kids and while the thrill of seeing the train crossing from the hotel room window wore off, the endless clanging of the train day and night ( past midnight ) is something I will never forget. I felt let down because I asked the front desk smiler if the train was going to be noisy and he laughed it off. Even so, hotel was quite nice.

Hello, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I am sorry that you experienced a discomforting stay. Though I am surprised to hear a noise complaint from the train station, as they typically do not sound their sirens, I do apologize for both sources of noise. Our front desk staff truly does make an effort to have good guest interaction. While we do make efforts to rectify noise complaints with room moves and ear plugs it seems as though that was not the case with your stay . Thank you for choosing the Hampton Inn San Diego - Downtown. All the Best,
