Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was prompt, check in and out were easy

Staff was great! Excellent rooms. Busy weekend, but still found good parking. Breakfast was great also

Wonderful experience especially the breakfast . The staff was very friendly and helpful with our family

My bed had bugs in them and it was disgusting. I had a big crawl on me while I was trying to relax in my bed. My wife was not happy.

Good service overall. Free coffee, hot chocolate or hot tea all day.

Good experience, as what one would expect from similar hotels.

Stayed twice in 2 separate locations so far the hotel is clean, nice smelling hallways & good breakfast. There’s plenty of space to park and my family felt safe!

This hotel had bed bugs, and is way too expensive for the quality of the hotel. It looks like it is a cheap hotel that tries to cover it up with since good sheets and comforters, when really they aren't that great either because they are covered in bed bugs. I had bites on my arms for a week. I do not recommend this place to anyone.

Air conditioner unit seemed broken, had to open the window. Good price for stay.

Everything really great though just stayed only one night. All staffs are excellent!!! Especially, thank you so much to GM David Chang. My wife left her sweater in closet and we found we left it in hotel room after came back home a couple days later. We called there and explained to GM David Chang we think we left over it in closet. David Chang took care without any our cost and mailed it to us(SF bay area) the sweater. My wife really really happy. And thank you so much to all staffs and GM David Chang.

We have stayed here previously and find this motel to be extremely clean. The hot breakfast every morning is delicious and there is always a nice variety of items to choose from. Would definitely recommend.

We found blood stains on 2 pillow cases and the room has the horrible sewage smell at night.

Great location and hotel was clean. Good breakfast.

This is an economy hotel exceptionally clean, friendly staff free breakfast, located pretty much close to everything, for a fair price! The beds are extremely comfortable, The air conditioning slightly noisy.

Went to San Diego for a wedding weekend, and hotel stay was comfortable, affordable, and dependable. What more can you ask for?!

This was our first stay at a Hampton Inn. We were impressed with the cleanliness and the hot complimentary breakfast. We will definitely stay at this motel again, as we will be visiting family that live just a few miles away from there. It was too cold to use the outdoor pool, but we hope another time to be able to do that.

We chose the Hampton because it was near a wedding in town. It was easily accessible from the freeway and conveniently tucked in just a little so there was no noisy traffic. The bed was very comfortable - the best we've found and the walk-in shower with specialty shower-head was wonderful. The staff was courteous, breakfast hit the spot, and the 24-hour coffee selection was a definite plus, complete with flavored creamers. There were restaurants, but they required a quick jump on the freeway.
