We realized the hotel was in an excellent location; however, we didn't think about the Amtrak train rolling by our room at night. The hotel staff provided us with earplugs which definitely came in handy. The only problem we experienced during our stay is we had to use our car at night to drop off a family member after the ballgame and we were told we […] might not have a parking spot when we returned and we were paying a daily fee to park our car at this location. It would have been nice to be made aware of the parking fee and the fact we were not guaranteed a parking space if we had to use our car for any reason. Thankfully, upon our return we were able to park our car on a ramp within the parking garage. The hotel staff was very responsive and courteous to all of our needs, the room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was terrific. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Penny, thank you for your review and your business. I am sorry that parking and noise were an issue during your stay. I hope that we will see you again at the Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown! Respectfully, Miguel Rojas
"Good hotel but noisy"
Hotel is good for what you pay in terms of location, service and room. Just beware of the noise. Train tracks are right behind the hotel so you will hear all night the train passing by and the warning sounds. If you are sound sensitive, you will have a bad night. If not, then this is a nice choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"CLOSE TO AIRPORT"
The room was close to the railroad track which we didn't realize when we booked it and it did cause some discomfort (room equipped with ear plugs). Missed breakfast due to early flight but the hotel did give us a bag snack to go. Hotel staff was great. The neighborhood was much better during the day than at night. Airport shuttle was full, so they reimbursed […] our taxi fare. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great stay close to airport"
Great place to stay before leaving San Diego. convenient and shuttle serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Marina"
The hotel is close to the Marina, but it is a 30 minute walk to Downtown/Gas lamp area where all the restaurants and shops are. It is a bit of a trek, but the surrounding area is really nice. Be aware that this hotel is close to the Train Station. There were complimentary "ear plugs" on the nightstand for a reason. The room is nice and clean. Staff […] is friendly.

"Very good location"
I enjoyed having the airport shuttle available as well as the morning breakfasts. The Hotel staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about sights, locations etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to some major attractions, but a bit noisey overall (thin walls/windows etc). Parking garage can be tight at times. Room was small but decent with basic aammenites available. Elevators a little "clunky" most rides (and a little unnerving at times). You are paying for downtown location with this hotel. Breakfast was good, and we ate there every […] morning (one of the reasons we selected this hotel). Thanks Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Train tracks right behind the hotel are very loud! Elevators always broken. Bed not very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Nicolette, I thank you for your business and apologize for the troubles with the elevators. I hope that aside from this you enjoyed other aspects of our hotel. Sincerely, Miguel Rojas
Overall stay and experience was good!! Rooms were clean and the staff very helpful in all your needs. Breakfast was good as well. The only drawback was our room was behind the mexican fast food restaurant and we occasionally would here the drive thru speakers when people would order. But other than that we were able to enjoy good nights sleep. Will […] def come back and stay!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value, conveniently located. Tight parking."
This hotel was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located ... near downtown, near the harbor, and not far from the airport. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, clearing up a mistake that I made in booking my room. It also offered the usual Hampton Inn amenities, including a free breakfast buffet, a nice pool, and a decent exercise room. There […] were two minor drawbacks; but neither would prevent me from staying here again. First, the hotel is located next to railroad tracks which are not heavily traveled. Second, the indoor parking facility is extremely cramped with narrow parking spaces. Given the prime location, however, this is understandable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"***** EXCELLENT! The Best Yet!"
For the price and location this was the best deal yet! Clean comfy rooms with down comforter bedding! Full complimentary buffet breakfast (waffles, eggs & bacon) Staff was friendly and accommodating! It offers business center and a pool. The only thing that could have made it better is if parking was free ($12), but that's hard to come by anywhere downtown. […] This hotel should have a 3.5 star rating at least. Anyone who rates it lower hasn't frequented the other hotel options in San Diego! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient location near Little Italy"
The hotel was very nice. The free breakfast was good. The location was very convenient. A short walk to watch the sunset by the water, or grab a bite in Little Italy. Around the corner from the trolley, but also a nice walk down to the Gas Lamp district. My only complaint is that our room was on the north west corner of the building, and there was a […] lot of late night noise by the burrito place next door. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Kerri, thank you for your business and for taking the time to complete this review on the Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown.

"Perfection in the heart of San Diego"
From the moment I checked in at the Hampton Inn in downtown San Diego until I checked out 5 days later,the staff was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat as well as directions and suggestions for activities in the San Diego area. My room was quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and had good choices. Free […] coffee and Ice water were available for guests on a 24 hour basis. The staff from desk clerks to cleaning staff were outgoing and unusually friendly. As a result, one felt "at home." Being within walking distance to all the downtown sights was a plus. I would return here without hesitation and certainly would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting San Diego. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Train noise unbearable"
Booked this 2 months before arrival, requesting a room on upper floor, near the front of the hotel . Our room turned out to be on the third floor in the far back corner of the hotel, about 30 yards away from train tracks. The trains ran until midnight and we heard the signals blaring at 4:00 the next morning. We were very disappointed and would never […] stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear traveler, thank you for your business and your review. I am really sorry that we were unable to block you away from the train during your stay. Unfortunately when we block our rooms there is not a way that we can consider when eh reservation was booked to ensure those people get a better location. Rather we base the location on what is available and what requests we have and then hope to be able to fulfill most of those. I am not sure if there were aspects of the hotel that you enjoyed and would otherwise prompt you to give us another chance, but if this is the case, please contact me and I will trace your reservation. Respectfully, Miguel Rojas
I chose this hotel because of it's advertised 'free airport shuttle.' However, when I called the front desk to inquire how to access the shuttle from the airport after my flight arrived at 12:30 am, I was told the shuttle service ends at 10 pm. This seemed inappropriate to me, given the web advertising. I am waiting to see whether the hotel cares enough […] about customer service to at least refund the cost of the taxi I incurred to get to the hotel. We shall see.

"Only a block from harbor"
Front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. Lobby was welcoming, with complimentary coffee and ice/lemon water. It was great to use the computers in the lobby to check in on our flight. The Room was clean and fresh. Did not use the pool but it looked inviting. The transit line is directly behind the hotel. We could here the signals and trains but […] not too bad. It was great to be so close to the harbor and downtown. The hot buffet breakie was delicious. And the free airport shuttle was perfect. Would definitely stay again.

This has become my hotel of choice when I go to the opera in downtown San Diego. It is clean,well appointred and has a great full breakfast bar. There were two things that I was not happy about, but they were minor in the scheme of things. First be aware that they charge $12 a day to park. Second is that my bathroom had virtually no counter space to […] put toiletries. I mentioned this when checking out and was told that room had an ADA bathroom designed for wheelhairs which explains the shower floor on the same flat level as the regular floor that caused water to flow out into the room. Other than these quibbles, I love the included breakfast, the proximity to downtown, the helpful staff and the cleanliness of the hotel. I will definitely return.

"Nice Hotel, Loud Environment"
This hotel was clean, well maintained, and had a courteous staff. The room was reasonably equipped for the price, and the complimentary breakfast was better than average. However, there are train tracks directly behind the hotel, and we heard the train crossing bells and the trains themselves all evening and morning. While I in no way blame the hotel, […] it made it hard to sleep, and, as a result, I will likely not stay here the next time I am in San Diego. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We went a day early for a cruise so we would have a little time to visit a couple of places we had gone on a trip years ago. Public transit was extremely convenient from this hotel.

"Great stay - no complaints"
I stayed at this hotel for a few days with family. The staff is friendly. The check-in was efficient. The rooms are spacious and clean. Our rooms even had a sitting area with a sofa. The hot breakfast was good and consisted of scrambled eggs, waffles, cereals, yogurt and fruit and more. The breakfast attendant made sure we never ran out of anything. […] The lobby has various coffees, tea and water with lemons in it. The parking structure is easy to get in and out. Locations is awesome, close to cruise ships. Little Italy with awesome restaurants is around the corner. The only, minor drawback is that it is close to rail lines with Amtrak and Trolleys going by. But they drive by slow and never bothered me. On top of it all, the hotel included free wifi that actually worked well. Of course there are more high end deluxe hotels close by that cost 2x as much and offer no free wifi or free breakfast. But the Hampton's price and quality are just right for me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

...two packages of complimentary ear plugs on the night stand in the room when we checked in.

Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Red Eye, I am really sorry that you had a restless night sleep due to the commuter line running behind the hotel.

"Train and airport noise make this a poor choice"
The hotel is located right next to the train tracks and very near the San Diego airport. Between the trains and planes, our room was very noisy. The hotel is very cramped and seems put together oddly for a hotel. The elevators are tucked away in an odd location. The hotel parking garage is very hard to park in. It's very narrow and has very small parking […] spaces. Those with larger cars will have a heck of a time parking. We were only at the hotel one night. At 2am, the fire alarm went off, sending us down the stairs to the street. There was no staff member out there informing or directing people to a gathering point. We finally wandered into the lobby where a smiling staff member behind the desk let us know it was a false alarm. That's it, no explanation, nothing. The next morning I heard three different staff members offer three different explanations for the alarm. The breakfast area was useless. While typical of Hampton Inn, there was not enough seating for the swarm of customers. Food was picked over and not refreshed when low. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Doug, I am sorry for the false alarm that occurred during your stay. I want to assure you that at no moment was your safety and those of other guests in jeopardy. I am sorry for the miscommunication the following day.
